This album was born of confusion, illness, and healing. It was written and created during a very difficult time, though when listening to it, I feel nothing but pride, gratitude and love…especially for all that contributed to its creation. There are so many people to thank for the realization of this record. The amazing musicians that both performed and contributed creatively to its creation – Stephen Demers, Eric Sampson, Tom Chase, Kraig Jordan, Rachel Blumberg and Scott Janovitz.
Drums Recorded By Steve Rizzo at Stable Sounds – Portsmouth, RI
Recorded and mixed by Kraig Jordan at Plan of a Boy – Providence, RI. Produced by Jodie and Kraig • Fits and Starts produced by Jodie, Kraig and Tom
An enormous thank you to everyone who contributed to funding this record…your contribution is more than appreciated and I love you!

Sorry for the delay . My sewer pipe got clogged , some wet basement clean up .. yuck
I guess influences from my teen yrs are here on this new music . Production values I would later believe to be unattractive and not possible for me . I hated them ..
My family lived in West Hollywood California . At the base of Laurel Canyon. In the 1970”s .
My earliest memories of music played by my folks included Talking Book by Stevie wonder ,the Beatles , CSN&Y , lots of classical, the opera . Cheech And Chong ..
In high school i would get into The Doors , Black Sabbath , The Who , Aerosmith, the Ramones , Zeppelin , the Stones … Pink Floyd ….Parliament.. not Fleetwood Mac
I was playing Guitar throughout.. Acoustic ..
I moved back to Boston . Bowie , Thin Lizzy , Mott The Hoople , T. Rex ,
I got angry . Got an electric guitar . Got into the more attainable sounds and thrash of Punk .. All three cords and the pushing and shoving of The Circle Jerks , Beastie Boys , Gang Green , etc…
Then I learned a 4th . And fifth cord .. the guy producing our record had worked with Phil Spector and Brian Wilson . Did a lot of research on the Pet Sounds record ( The Beach Boys ) .
Got burned out on trying to be a rock star . Family time .
Got into the whole octave pedal thing with Mark Sandman .. we traded some pedals .
The Forgotten years happened
I got sober October 1, 2018 and started these songs in the spring of 2019 . It took a while to be able to play again .
The bulk of this was started in March 2020 as the COVID 19 pandemic hit the US .
Thanks to :
The Idles for catching my eye … and so many other great young folks keeping the tradition ( whatever it is ) alive ..
This a big deal for me to put this record out ..
