Product Notes

Drunk Sluts Forever comprises 10 songs about life, death, addiction, suicide, betrayal, American nationalism-and one really sassy T-shirt-by multi-instrumentalist musician and writer, Liam Gowing. A DIY project recorded largely in a six-month span between 2011 and 2012 (then delayed by a serious bout of tinnitus), it features Gowing on multiple layers of vocals and an extensive array of instruments-guitar, bass, piano, drums, harmonica, recorder, tambourine, castanets and shakers as well as (through the magic of a MIDI keyboard) organ, synth, electric piano, vibraphone, steelpan, strings, horns and woodwinds-along with a smattering of public domain sound effects and percussion loops. The result is an eclectic assemblage of maximalist power pop encrusted with chunks of stoner rock, psychedelic funk, surrealist disco and electronica plus a Gothic-cum-sci-fi Western instrumental, two or three classical interludes, a hip-hop influenced funeral march and even a quasi-country tune complete with a Bluegrass guitar solo. Instigated by 1000 Clowns alumnus Jerry Pao, who volunteered to perform engineering duties in exchange for a place to crash (the good bedroom of course), the recording sessions were mixed by guitarist and onetime DJ Bill O'Neil. Turned over to Jon Griffin at LunaZen Studios for a penultimate Polish, the final results were mastered for compact disc by Mark Chalecki at Little Red Book Mastering. Album Credits: Produced by Liam Gowing with Jerry Pao and Bill O'Neil Recording sessions engineered by Liam and Jerry Mixed by Bill and Liam with additional mixing and mastering prep by Jon Griffin Mastered by Mark Chalecki Cover photography by Hazel "Nut" Lee. Layout & design by Liam and Neal Gardner All songs, instruments and vocals by Liam Gowing. Public domain/royalty-free audio samples (church bells on So Long, elevator and audience noises on Drunk Sluts Forever: Part 3, screams on The Suicide Machine, vinyl hiss on Party Down, traffic noises and "Alleluia" chorus on Purdizzy and the life-flashing-before-your-ears collage on Release) downloaded from freesound.org, hark.com, shockwave-sound.com, simplythebest.net, audiomicro.com, pacdv.com and soundbible.com. "You have reached the number you have dialed" sample taken from Joe Gowing Sr.'s final voice mail message. Big thanks to Jerry Pao for getting the ball rolling, Bill O'Neil for running it into the end zone and Jon Griffin for spiking it. Additional thanks to Lawrence Casey and Neal Gardner for offering great recording tips and design help along the way. Special thanks to Andy Pearce and Rob Gould for lending essential gear. And a special gold star to Jennifer Brandon-Elliott for selling such an inspirational T-shirt. Lastly, maximum love to Joe and Moya Gowing, who made the whole thing possible. ©2013 Liam Gowing / MojoSon Music.
