ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rubber Solstice was originally disc number 2 of It Wuz & Still Iz Late Octobra. Since it seems impossible to put out double CD's with certain digital distribution companies I chose to keep this a single disc. Most of the music was finished at Sonic Underground Studios just before I left for Maui in the summer of 2004. I later embellished the disc was some newer material that seemed to keep the reminiscent concept that prevails afloat. Song's like Frank's Medication finished after my Dad's death in Nov. of 2006 and the hopeful wonderment of Time And Time Again written with my girlfriend Susan in mind tend to bring a new perspective to what has gone before. Homages to two of my favorite groups, The Beatles (Don't Bother Me) and Steely Dan (You Go Where I Go) are here and sounding very Tabacco! The soundtrack to a movie I had in envisioned called Residual Echoes Residing In Bogle Cabinet 47 ultimately sounds like the musical part of my brain hemorrhaging uncontrollably. Snippets of music from the Akai Years, through the 8 Track years, through the beginning of the 24 track years mingle in and out of performances including The 21 Walnut Carolers and The Ed Palermo Big Band, not to mention the Sirka Louca photos that I’ve used through out my other CDs… Why? I don’t know. It’s what I had to do.
Just following a script. And the script says at this point:

This is the last CD I will produce for a while. It’s a single’s market now a-days. Listeners pick and choose their favorite music. All the segues I sweat over are created in vain thanks to the non-segueing nature of mp3s. All the reasons I put one song after another is pretty much useless with the random playing of songs in ipods. Oh well, it was nice to make a CD while it lasted. And what of the graphic art? That should be available on another site all together I guess.

Eclectic Masterpiece
Tabacco is a great singer and a great songwriter who has a great sense of humor. He obviously does not care what people think. He does whatever he wants which is really the spirit every independent artist should carry. And some of his songs are actually quite commercial! Check out Spoon Fed Criminal or Why You Have To Be So Cruel? He also covers so much musical ground here you have to hear it to believe it. Nice packaging as well. I love this guy. An eclectic masterpiece!
