No plans really. I just want to make cool stuff. I like tight beats and cool harmonies and chords that send a chill up my spine. I seriously just want to tinker all day and screw around with stuff. That’s all I’m really doing. If people like it that’s a bonus. I have fun making it. The process of screwing around is the fun part. Anything extra is a bonus.
The first single, “Turd Ferguson” is a tribute to the late Norm Macdonald and his impersonation of Burt Reynolds on SNL’s parody of Jeopardy. “I’ve been working on a second ‘Mind of a Madman’ since 2016,” said Keenan. “I was attempting to complete an album called “Wreckage of the Past,” but it wasn’t it’s time.”
The album as a whole has it all, from top-tier production, feats of amazing artists, and diversity in styles and genres, to topics personal, social, political, and even economic. John Keenan is a phenomenon that we may never see the like of again.
From “First Entry” to “Say It Again”, the entire record feels like a fully fledged journey, the kind of intense and and revealing journey into your own inner self that’s bound to wake up what’s been dormant within.
