ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Spring 1987. A twelve year old boy is getting ready for his middle school dance. He taught himself all the dance moves to the Janet Jackson’s “Control” singles. He keeps his fingers crossed. He really hopes the DJ plays Janet so he can show his classmates how good he can dance. Friday night arrives. One more look in the mirror. His parents drop him off and the dance begins. As each song fades and the next begins he wishes for Janet. “Gimmie A Beat!” At ten p.m. his wish comes true. The DJ’s playing “Nasty” by Janet Jackson and his dancing begins. The music pounds and his classmates watch in awe. He feels like the pop star he wants to be when he grows up. Just like Janet! Just like Madonna! He feels like a hero.

The following Monday afternoon back to school. So much whispering. Turns out the kids were watching as he danced but not in admiration. They called him mean names for the next six years. His life forever changed. That boy finished high school. He taught himself guitar. He graduated from college. He went on to release fourteen indie-acoustic albums. Never again would he allow himself the freedom and abandon of that middle school dance in 1987. Until now. This new album is a tribute to the music I loved growing up. And it\'s the music I still love. Viva 1987...Jeremy Gloff style.

Fans of Techno, Electronica, etc... will of course like this album -it easily stands on its own alongside its contemporaries- but what sets it apart from the pack is that it's a *must have* for anyone who was a teenager back in '87.

Gloff is a strong songwriter utilizing many of the era's characteristic writing devices to capture the mood and feel of the times. BOYFRIEND starts off the album the way we used to gear up for a Saturday night. Songs like LIGHTS ON, GOOD FEELING and FLORIDA RAIN recall the radio hits of the time while ARMAGEDDON SEX epitomizes the reckless abandon we all felt living under the threat of the Cold War. LOVE ALIVE is the soundtrack to a movie scene- that scene of aimless drifting right before the movie's climax. If you grew up with FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, THE BREAKFAST CLUB and PRETTY IN PINK you'll feel it too.

The crown jewel of the bunch is the title track. If you were in high school in '87 this is YOUR SONG. It would sound great sung by any artist of the era; Prince, Madonna, Mellencamp (add your own choice here)... If you were in high school in '87 this is your album!
