Album Notes
Check the YouTube link for a full song performance!

Ed's Head is a concept album, but done in a more "underground/greasy kids stuff/bombastic/by the seat of one's pants/Chicago Indie" kind of way. Hence the "Graphic Audio Novel". In other words, like a thick, really detailed, well done, layered comic book.

What's it about? Aliens are contracted by the American Government to enslave the human race!! But WAIT!! The aliens have other plans in mind! Through a series of subliminal messages coded in pi-binary and transmitted through television, the aliens double cross all branches of government and prepare to set humanity free.

This is to be achieved via a sort of super-powered-sleep-Zen-solution (which sounds like static) that will activate hidden technology dating back to the arrival of the very first stars buried deep in the cerebral cortex of the brain.

This album is what happens over the course of one night in the dreams of one particular test subject: EDM-N4221.631-W885.462 as the powers that would be refer to him. But that's a bit lengthy. Let's call him "Ed" for short.


How many licks does it take to get to the center of the universe?

Paddy Leitsch is a multi-instrumental recording artist, engineer and producer in the FAR left field of instrumental rock and experimental music. Don't call him a shredder, 'cos really he's a blender!!

His cryptic and somewhat obtuse personality leads him to describe his music with one question:

What would it sound like if Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Joe Satriani were caught in a Tom Baker era episode of Doctor Who?

sweet album.. everything from burning riffs and solos to the clock ticking inside of ed's head

Evan Whitney

Space Art
Very cool and trippy piece of work here. I'm holding back a half star only because I like my drums a little more in front. Otherwise this album is a great, cohesive, spacey audio painting. (Paddy L. calls it a graphic novel, but I prefer looking at pictures. Wait... that's what a graphic novel is. Never mind.) This artist knows how to make an album, not just a bunch of songs. I hope I don't have to wait another 4 years for the next masterpiece.

Jon Camp

Great album
I love Paddy's work and this is my favorite of his albums so far. Killer guitar riffs, extremely heartfelt, sincere, and smart. Highly recommended.
