THE GIRAFFES

The Giraffes albums were all recorded between 1996 and 2001 on 8-track cassette. During the height of the success of THE PRESIDENTS OF THE USA I had an urge to keep playing around with writing songs in a different style than the band so I did and instead of calling it by my name I decided to invent a pretend band called THE GIRAFFES. I made the band up of a gang of puppets and toys and even invented a fake history and bio for the group. The albums became an outlet for a style and feel of songs that did not fit in THE PRESIDENTS. I got to explore a bit more of a dark theme and make albums without a democratic creative environment which I came to learn was really important for me. The third Giraffes album came out way later than the other two when in 2014 I noticed that I had a ton of material that had never been released that fit the feel of THE GIRAFFES.
