zip it up

"When you listen to the wonky and warm harmonies found throughout Joy Zipper, you might be reminded of the first stirrings of a good trip (that slight, buzzy bump of well being and of everything just beginning to detach). And then you learn and understand that LSD was the key to much of Vinny's writing, on this five-years-in-the-gestating, two-years-in-the-making home project. "My father died when I was five, and I accepted it," says Vinny. "But acid freed my mind during a very depressed period of my life, and now it's great to be rid of it and pass it on to other people. The music isn't as morbid as some of the words. I've constructed a false reality around the subject. It's a lot like Long Island itself, with its beautiful lawns; when there is a lot going on unseen." Hence the reason why this cartharsis doesn't seem much like a burden at all."
