"Ten songs of exquisite pop quality, highly recommendable, The Lot." - Lord Litter's radio show January 2004, www.lordlitter.de
Dave Ganci. "I hate music. I've no contact with any but my own." Paradoxically he toils away his reclusive existence in a deep cellar, endlessly molding and suffering his buried landscapes. He can move from key to key at will, forging color contrasts that make the everyday seem washed out in comparison. "Once it's known where you're going, it's redundant to go there," he reasons, then tours the wilds; sometimes where the sun rises, sometimes where it sets. In "Steal Me in the Courtyard" the listener finds he's suddenly far from home, suspended in the most distantly related key, at the point of being "caught above the ground".
Soren Roquentin. His reticence constitutes a barrier to others never to be conquered. He once fell in love with a young music student at the University of Delaware. He was so shy that he scarcely dared talk to her, much less tell her of his love. "Penny" became the means of turning him into a morose and brooding man, lonely of mind and disconsolate of spirit. There is no doubt that he half-consciously enjoyed his frustration, as evident from the farcical songs he would later write about her.
"...with all kinds of classic pop influences here, lot's of good ol' ELO on this one I guess, that's The Lot, from America... more tracks from that great CD promised at forthcoming shows, I really like it very much, The Lot." - Garry Lee, Overflow Radio Show
