Larry Wish & His Guys — “Not From My Come From” CS
11 / 29 / 2016
Larry Wish brings together His Guys for a set of far-out pop tunes and outsider jams. A fixture of weirdo music in Minneapolis, Adam Werven (who is Larry Wish) wrote these songs over the course of three years at the Organ Haus. They were originally recorded as 4-track bedroom prog songs with Adam overdubbing each part, drums, cheap keyboards, etc. The songs are about daily observations, reflections, interactions, and trying to understand love and life without analyzing either to death. Not From My Come From features a band of talented and wonderful musicians who have learned the parts and applied their own stylized filters to them. It is the third album by Larry Wish & His Guys, and the first to include guitarist Nate Johnson on the electric guitar. The cover painting is by Adam’s Grandfather, Lawrence “Bump” Werven.
