Album notes:

Chickablekkeh: A lot about this song can be attributed to our drummer, Jeff Ernst. Humming a little melody out to the rest of the band, Gary Ingle adapted his idea into the keyboard motif you hear played on the intro. Copious amounts of jamming ensued, resulting in other parts getting developed & added. It was truly built from the ground up, together, as a band. Hearing that riff on the keys, along with the drumbeat, immediately made me think of bands like the Meters and Funkadelic, along with guitar players such as John Scofield, Robben Ford, and Jim Weider. Another aspect of the song that is directly related to drummer Jeff is the title. Most musicians tend to have some sort of ‘vocal shorthand’ as a way to verbalize their riff or licks, in order to get ideas across to others. Jeff has lots of hilarious onomatopoeias he uses in order to express his drum patterns, “chickablekkeh” being one such example. This is the word used to ‘pronounce’ his intro lick, which can be found at other intervals throughout the song. To truly bring honor to the phrase, we recorded our first gang vocals for this song! Gary Ingle helped with writing and arranging this song and John Deaderick laid down some awesome organ on it.

Broken Sequence:
(a.k.a Decaying Uranus)
John Skinner wanted this song to sound like outer space and Tron. Gary Ingle created a great synth melody and John Deaderick performed it perfectly.

Breaking Free:
This one is 100% from the mind of Gary Ingle.
