More Info on Our Next CD, Apoplectic
Thu., Oct. 30. 2014 9:51am EDT
Last week, we told you about our next CD, Apoplectic, which focuses on 90's parodies. The master disc has already been sent to the manufacturer, and we're currently working on the artwork. Of the 13 tracks, we mistakenly said five were new brand-new recordings we'd been reserving exclusively for this CD … actually, there are six!
Four of the parodies have never been released in any form. Two others have only been available in extremely primitive versions on our Rare Not Well Done downloads, but the quality of the new recordings will make you forget all about the old ones. We've also tweaked the lyrics.
The remaining seven tracks have already been released on singles in 2014 but not on CD: "God's Own Son," "Proving My Religion," "Aaronic," "This is from Paul," "God Knows You've Tried," "One More Wall," and "One of Us Indeed."
In a sense, Apoplectic is the follow-up to our Ticked (a.k.a. "Rolling Clone") CD from 1997. It concentrates on the same era of music and has a similar attitude, which is one of the reasons we called it "Apoplectic," which means "really ticked." The other reason is that the word looks so much like ApologetiX, of course.
A number of our fans who aren't even familiar with 90's music have told us that Ticked is one of their favorite ApologetiX CDs, strictly based on how powerful the songs are. We hope and think you'll feel the same way about Apoplectic.
If you're unfamiliar with some of the songs we spoofed on it, just pretend it's that long-awaited CD of original music you've been asking us to release!
