Welcome to our watershed moment. "Greatest Misses: Volume 2" is the tenth album we've released, since first being introduced to one another, on-line, back in 2009.
The funny thing is, "on-line" is not only how we met, it's also how we've put together every song we've collaborated on, since that initial encounter. The two of us have never shared the same space, at the same time, out in the "real world". The group, Gypsies in Cyberspace, lives in...well...cyberspace.
Cyberspace is where we gather; it's where we communicate; it's where we create the music that keeps drawing us back to one another, because our collective Muse demands it. And this modern miracle called the Internet makes it all possible.
From that perspective, we may be one of the purest "techno-bands" that ever existed. Technology created us, five years ago...and technology has sustained us, ever since.
But we're a techno-band in modis operandi, only. Musically, we're anything but. Our governing philosophy, creatively, is: "Go wherever the song takes you." It's a philosophy that leads us down a myriad of musical paths, as the fourteen songs comprising this collection demonstrate.
We're also extremely fortunate, in that several incredible musicians have accompanied us, at different times, on our various musical excursions and explorations. They drift in and out, also Gypsy-like, through our creative endeavors. These talented people are listed below, down near the bottom of this page. Thanks, all. Your contributions are always welcome...and greatly appreciated.
And now, it's on to an eleventh album. We have no idea what our next album will be, or what types of music it will contain, but you can bet it will be forthcoming. That's the fascinating thing about Muses. They won't be denied.
In the meantime, we give you our "Greatest Misses: Volume 2". Enjoy...
Kev and Jack
