Album Notes
At first I liked this concept for a record, releasing what most would call "demo versions" of songs as an album. As I was tracking I realized that I'm going to wanna do this again because it's such a pure, direct way to hear a batch of songs. The record then turned into a "project" or as I call it, an alter-ego. The word Murgatroyd has no official meaning, which I like cause I can do anything with it. It was first uttered by Bert Lahr in a 1944 film called "Meet The People," but most recall it from Snagglepuss (a Lahr-inspired character). The live shows for this band/ego will be as simple and intimate as the record, probably just me and a guitar...

If you know Scott Paris and his work, then you should see him going back to roots in a sense here. Its cut and dry music, but shows that he can do what ever he wants and triumph. I really feel that you get to hear Scott here.... because it is just him and his guitar. I love all his work (ie :Pirate Signals, Inti-Matter, Idiot Device, Santa Claus Hangover,etc). Scott has a rollercoster of styles in his bag and this is just a reminder of that.
