A.A. Bondy


Believers is the new A.A. Bondy record -

A Few thoughts from those who have crossed paths with him:

"They brought him in from a motorcycle wreck.  I could hear him singing from all the way down the hall.  It was weird, but kinda pretty." - Rita Jenkins (emergency room nurse, Kingston, NY)

"My wife and I are deaf so I can't say what his music sounds like.  Seemed nice enough.  He did set fire to his whole back yard once though." - Charles * Anne McTier (former neighbors)

"The tall thin guy? Oh yeah, he came in here every morning for three weeks, bought the same thing every day - one tube of krazy glue, and a a sausage biscuit.  I couldn't tell you what he did for money." - Ray Anne Murphy (Spring Mart)

"Not many people know this, but he's not a bad horn player, but he only played during particular celestial events.  At least that's what he told me." - Gladys Broussard (secretary, B&O Railroad)

Believers is the last couple years in one long exposure. - Bondy

Made of scenes gathered in actual places (upstate New York, Mississippi, California), but also scenes from an other place.  A finger on a dream globe.  One foot in the dirt, one in the ether, unseen voice at your ear.  On the tide with the Surfer King.

Recording took place in the spring of 2011 with Rob Schnapf in Glassell Park, Los Angeles, at Mant/Kingsize Studios.  It's Bondy's third for Fat Possum Records.  Song were worked on until they told us not to work on them anymore.  Ben Lester played drums and pedal steel, Macey Taylor played bass.  Proof in zeros. Proof in ones.  Believers.
