01 - Why So Close?
Surrender Monkeys - "Fame In The Fast Lane" (2007)
It does what it says on the tin - twelve songs all about the trials and tribulations of fame and being famous. A fairly prolific period - I churned out the songs relatively quickly and inspiration seemed to be pretty much everywhere. I visited the US mid-recording which provided a bunch of new ideas ("From Citgo to Titusville", "H is for Hollywood") and the media was rife with current celebrity meltdowns (Robbie Williams and poor old Britney).
It's got a little bit of everything really - alien encounters in the desert, ex-boy band singers, celebrity suicides, vicars killed in balloons and a tasty "night of the living dead" sample on the final track.
I've had worse moments.
