I did and I’ve enjoyed Steve Poltz‘ solo work as well. Steve’s last record is called Chinese Vaction and while it came out in 2003 I’m sure it’s not too late to revisit one of my favorite artists. Stevce Poltz’s website is set up as a blog with entries every couple of days including postings of his newest songs which are very rough drafts. Reminds me of They Might Be Giants’ Dial-A-Song thing although much more interactive with many people commenting on the songs.
Needless to say Steve was the lead singer/writer for The Rugburns who put out some great records out on Mercury back in the day. Somehow he seems to have kept the rights to these records and he’s posted some mp3′s from these releases. Steve’s new music continues in a similar vein with witty, clever, downright hilarious songs interspersed with songs that convey deep feelings (sounds so SNL but it’s true). Click here to buy any of these records. First up are two songs from Chinese Vacation:
From Steve Poltz’s One Left Shoe
