Adam Green

Adam Green is a famous American celebrity from New York City. At the
beginning of his career he moved to Germany to seek political asylum
from the persecution of his talents. He was greeted with open arms and
formed a theatre company which produced a ballet concert. While living
in East Germany, he was offered a co-starring role in the movie Juno,
which won the Grammy and went platinum. After his work with The Moldy
Peaches was done, he recorded 6 solo albums, including the latest, "Minor Love."

Recorded with long time producer/friend Noah
Georgeson in a luxurious pool house in Los Angeles California, fondly
nicknamed The Lake Room, "Minor Love" found Green enlisting the talents
of Rodrigo from Little Joy and other hanger-ons, like his brother Joel
(and look-a-likes Joe Steinbrick and Greg from Megapuss).

The album showcases a tender side of the often arrogant and emotionally
unavailable bully/singer, Green. In a total state of isolation, Green
attempted to play nearly all the instruments on the record, due to
incurable social phobias which plagued him. Sometimes a slick session
musician, like Rodrigo, was tolerated in the studio. However no women
were permitted into the studio at all because of Green's attempts to
pursue a bisexual lifestyle.

The inspiration for this album lies in Green's fatalism. Despite a
fairly normal upbringing, and a generally optimistic world view, he
often contends that nothing lasts... that there is nothing to look
forward to...and that "we are all living in a butcher shop," which
Leonard Cohen told him while at a Bar-B-Que at Lou Reed's house.

People may be shocked by how talented Adam Green is.
