Two ex-Seattle collaborators reunite in Brooklyn after 16 years to record a second epic. A concept album about corruption in the shoestore industry. Or whatever happens.
This album was recorded entirely from February 20 to February 28, 2010. All songs were either written from scratch, or rewritten and completed, in February.

The Like-a-looks are the Lookalikes(2010)
Plot: Guy leaves home, goes on binge to find self. Ignores love, loses love, begs for love, waits for trains at 10 stations. Realizes that he has been constricting life to avoid inner turmoil, observes limitations of this strategy. Covets and/or sins-with and/or listens-to and/or impregnates Brooklyn MILF(s) after working shifts at the Park Slope Food Co-op Future Time Off Program (FTOP). Walks away, dazed, from a plane crash, prays to be turned into a tree. Has epileptic or apoplectic fit. Turns into a cat. Is awed by the cosmos. In enlightened state, says "Groovy" 67 times. Goes through stages of grief, accepts loss of love(s), hopes he did something helpful for someone at some point in existence thus far.
