White Trash

The album inspiration is in title and the music. This one is more of an acoustic/electric based album with a vocally rich overtone. Each song tells a little more of the story in the white trash world for example jumping on a tramp, this is the story of a john going out and getting a hooker that happens to be large. Part of the references in the song refer to the theory that you don't pay a hooker to stay but rather to leave. It is a common thought among some people that I have meet that weather you have a girlfriend, wife or hooker you still pay for sex. That being said, I think some people haven't found the right partners or maybe just put too much emphasis into getting laid. Sex is nice but love can last a lifetime.

Another dark place the songs on this album can take you would be exampled by the song Wife Beater. This song delves into the emotions behind domestic violence and the damage it does to families with children. I thought this was important after hearing stories of the what happened to the children now separated from there families and trying to grow up with such a emotional developmental disadvantage.

There are also some more light heart-ed and fun songs such as The Lamp light, a song about going out and drinking after a hard weeks work. Blue Collard Man also has melancholy joking side to it meant to help people lighten up a bit.

All instruments were preformed by Titus Etheridge. The drums were made on a Alesis SR-16 & LADS Drum Loops. The backup female vocals were preformed by Shannon. All tracks and mixing were engineered by 8th Productions Portland OR.

7:30 A.M.

This is the first album in the Funkyhairman collection. The recording of this album stretched from Los Angeles to Marin California copyright 2006. It evolved as much of the music you will find under this label does. The album takes you on a wake less journey of the Monday morning blues. The piano based tracks are filled with angst and riddled with compassion for the soul. This is one of the first collaborations done with Funkyhairman & CoD now know as Jackie Juke Box (SLiMCHaNcE Productions ).

The album also tells the story of the homeless population in America one of the most appalling attributes of our country here as rich as ours. The song most particularly tackling this dilemma in a humerus manner would be Food (for kitty Colombo). The other in a more spiritual aspect would be 30, that's how old I was homeless, hopeless and sad in Los Angeles. Things are brighter now as they always can be. Don't ever give up!

The album also brings into question the idea of death and rebirth of life. Blackened Eyes is the song about the end. Not Armageddon crazy! Our inevitable one the one we all must face, Yes death. We all must face it sometimes it's best to face it as a beginning to the unknown and to reflect the proper prospective of what is truly important in life.

The Orgins

The name Funkyhairman is derived from a song written by Titus Etheridge at 8Th Productions. It was written partly in 1994 and finished in 1999. There is a recorded version of the song for they that wish to hear ( www.funkyhairman.com) this was recorded in Evolution Studios in 2002 with Addict Evolution (Titus Etheridge vocals and acoustic guitar, Ken Liebenburg drums Joel Cabotoge electric guitars. Engineered/produced by Joel Cabotoge and Titus Etheridge.) Funkyhairman name is used mostly as a name to describe solo albums by Titus Etheridge. Most of the music is piano or acoustic guitar based with a heavy dose of vocals. There are some more instrumental based songs as well but most of the music written for the funkhairman label is vocal driven melancholy music. Please enjoy!
