Singled Out: Prophet Omega's The Day The Radio Died
. Today Prophet Omega mastermind Joe Magistro tells us about "The Day The Radio Died" which is the first single released from the forthcoming album "Going Out To Slab City" (out March 14th). Here is the story:
The Day The Radio Died is the third track on the latest Prophet Omega album Going Out To Slab City. The song fits into the larger tapestry of the album but centers around one specific event; a good old-fashioned American close encounter with folks not from our cosmic neighborhood. It's inspired by an actual event. That mind blowing encounter lasted 20 minutes or so. This song is not nearly as long.
Some people would assume that beings from an unimaginably advanced civilization wouldn't have the occasional existential crisis. the nerve!
"they just kept going, since the day they came, thought we'd change forever but our lives remained the same"
The Day The Radio Died was recorded and mixed at home in the Catskill Mountains in New York State. I'm usually making the Prophet Omega music at home on my own which tends to give it its own flavor but sometimes it's nice to bring in a friend to add a little something something on top, a little extra personality. This song has guest appearances from two of my favorite people. Adam Widoff plays one of the two guitars (the really good one) and Burnell Pines chimes in on "nah nah nah" vocals. These guys bring a little space madness to our terrestrial road-trip.
