about

"Jump Back, Kerouac"

After I finished recording “Northern Town” in May of ’93 I didn’t write another song until February of ’94.
I was horrified. I thought I’d never write again.
“Good Intentions”, “Lonesome And Blue”, “Back On My Feet Again” and “I Won’t Stand In Your Way” were all written in Dallas while I was recording “Northern Town”.
The rest of the songs were written through ’94 and ’95.
The album was mixed and mastered and ready to be shipped to manufacturing.
I couldn't have been happier.
The record was done.
There are no finished paintings.
They're all abandoned.
Whoops.
That night I wrote I song “Moving On”.
I felt it needed to be on the album.
So I called Ian and the next morning we went in and recorded the song in one take.
Shave and a haircut, two bits.

I like this album a lot and lyrically it’s one of my favourites but I should have given my voice a rest before recording this album.
But, no excuses, that’s what we were…
a beer drinkin’, chain smokin’, pool shootin’, rockin’ and rollin’ till 3 in the morning type of band.
I can hear the lifestyle in my voice.

Oh well.

C'est la vie...

Enjoy,

Mike Plume
