about

The story behind the song "Leslie's Lonely Day" is quite simple - I ran into my friend Leslie as I was on my way to have a beer at a local Cleveland Hts. establishment, I asked her about her day, and, well, the song tells the rest of the story...thanks to our friend Chip who joined us, commenting observantly re: critics' projected response.
When the solo version of this song was originally due to be mixed, it was just one vocal and the guitar - as we mixed, a second vocal part suggested itself. We stopped mixing, Jay (the engineer) set up a mic, and we recorded the part. We sat down to mix again, and I started singing another harmony; again, we stopped and recorded the part. By the third or fourth time through this, Jay was also singing harmonies! About nine hours later, we finished mixing - enclosed are three of the mixes, the original voice and guitar, an intermediate mix, and the final which ultimately was featured on both "they showered us with beads and flowers" cd comp and the solo release "acrowno'stars".

Track Name: sputnik - leslie's lonely day
today i had a lonely day
saw a movie it was just ok
and i got a call from someone i didn't want to hear from
and i got a call from my mom

built some shelves and i played with my cats
put shit on my shelves, we built them with rocks and slats

and my brother came over and we had some smokes
and we read some 'zines and watched my soaps

and i went out to buy some oj but i bought some beers instead
it was a lonely day, a famous day, and the critics won't understand
it's just a lonely day, a lalalalalalalonely day
just a lonely day
