WE RECOMMEND DOWNLOADING THE WHOLE ALBUM AND BURNING IT ON CD WITH NO PAUSES IN-BETWEEN TRACKS.
THE PHYSICAL CD IS OUT OF STOCK, SORRY!
And now to WHAT YOU NEVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS ALBUM, by the snooty author himself.
While being DAYMOON’s first-ever album to be released, this is actually my own 5th album (let know if you want one of them for free - they're utter crap though, believe me). All the ones before All Tomorrows were solo albums, with the occasional helping hand from guest musicians, and they never got released. I also took part in a few other Portuguese projects, e.g., Mispel Bellyful, Project Creation (very minor only), Flora Majora, Miosótis and SP'AM. You can find some of it in the Donwloads section on the Daymoon website at www.daymoon-music.com
Anyways, in the middle of the album before this one - Fabric of Space Divine (to be released into the great wide open this year still), I felt I'd had it with unreleasable music and quit all serious efforts to make serious music. Instead, I chose to play with myself in the studio, which by definition is an entertaining thing to do, and even more entertaining if you have a helping hand, hence I asked some very gifted musicians from all over the world to lend me their hands. Oddly enough, some people told me they liked the result of all this innuendoing, and so it came to pass that I delved headlong into music again.
Along came Ian Oakley, at the time manager of The Tangent, and put me in touch with Andy Tillison of The Tangent and PO90. Even more unexpectedly, Andy liked the album and accepted the challenge to produce this ambiguous little plaything. All of a sudden, invitations too came to perform this innuendo live, so I started looking for fellow musicians here in Portugal. And found the most amazing bunch of people!
In the meantime though, Andy told me rather head-scratchingly that most of my original recordings were really sloppily done, so I challenged my newly found live band pals to redo almost all of the flawed recordings. Which they did.
And so there you are: All Tomorrows is a solo album by Fred Lessing that half-way through turned into a band project, comprising an unwieldy mixture of files exchanged via the Internet, tracks recorded at my own studio, acoustic drums recorded at a proper studio, and all sorts of what-nots, then much of it redone by my new band, and all of it tamed and skillfully auralised by Andy Tillison, except for: "Sorry", the full credits for which go to Mats Johansson and Thomas Olsson of Swedish prog gods Isildurs Bane.
A handful of tracks on this album are rehashed and revamped songs from my previous, unreleasable albums, while most others are brand-new Love Songs for the love of my life, Inês. I hope you enjoy this odd mix, that has some prog on it, but not only, and not only not only not.
And should you in any way wonder about the music that I like, here is some of it: J.S. (and PDQ) Bach, Klaatu, Mike Batt, Peter Gabriel, Renaissance, Tom Waits, The Persuasions, Gavin Castleton, and then a very thick slice of progressive rock recorded after 1996. Not to mention Twin Peaks.
Next up, and at last: Fabric of Space Divine, or The History of the Universe as Profoundly Misunderstood by Fred Lessing.
Apart from that, we're already working a whole new album of brand-new stuff, working-titled "The Vivisector".
