Quote of the Month
The Dream Gypsies debut album, entitled The Analogue Chronicles, is guaranteed to take you on a musical journey like you've never experienced. Due to the numerous musical influences that make up the creative corner stones of the artists, as well as Dr. Kapellimestari musical direction and expertise,the sound is very different from anything out there today.
Although Mike U.didn't realize the extent of the final project, he had the concept and the music for The Analogue Chronicles buzzing around in his head for several years. However, he didn't want to move forward with the project until he found just the right person with the same passion for it. Mike D., a long time friend, and one of the most gifted song writers from O.C. Ca., turned out to be the writing partner that Mike U. needed. So the journey began...During the production of The Analogue Chronicles, Mike U. pulled from his old song files, some of which were created as far back as 1903.
Produced by Mike Uren, The Analogue Chronicles combine some of the bands favorite things; The Twilight Zone and straight ahead old school rock sounds of their influences: Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, etc. The result is a style comparison to Cake, Beck, Pink Floyd and one fan described it as "If The Beatles met Bowie in Southern California and made an album together." In addition, believe it or not, the song entitled "The Killing" has been said to be in the style of Kenny Wayne Shepherd. As one can see, there is a very eclectic approach to the album, where each song is "another chapter," parallel to the companion novel. When you ask The Dream Gypsies, they're not sure WHO THEY "SOUND LIKE." They just say, "We sound like The Dream Gypsies. Isn't that good enough?"
For the production, Mike U. used a "no holds barred" approach, using everything that the studio, and his extremely talented team, had to offer to steer the production of The Analogue Chronicles. After the basic instrumental tracks were laid down, Mike Dziurgot, whose vocal style transcends any particular genre or time period, then contributed his part to the project. His writing and vocal style added a completely new dimension to the sound. Mike U. then went back into the studio and tossed in additional studio electronic art to create an audible experience entitled... The Analogue Chronicles.
The Analogue Chronicles is a 60 minute CD and an epic musical journey that takes the listener on a ride through a man's sordid and surreal life, that includes a host of interesting characters and predicaments. Sound like fun? Well, it is!

Elliott (Tone E.) and illustrated by Michael Uren, Out of Time (To Be That Bird) leads the reader through a portion of one man's sordid and surreal life as he unexpectedly travels to distant lands rediscovering himself and his beliefs. In the tradition of thought provoking science fiction, Out of Time (To Be That Bird) explores the possibility of parallel universes, begging the question, once again, "Now I do not know wether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or wether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man."

It also includes secret messages and twists and turns that will keep you intrigued, engaged and wanting more. You won't want to put it down!

"In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a base theme. Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. There is writing promoting social change, writing punishing injustice, writing in celebration of heroism, but always that base theme. Try to understand each other.
...John Steinbeck in his 1938 journal entry
