Notas editoriales de iTunes

East River Pipe (AKA F.M. Cornog) signed to a major label that folded before he released a note. But he kept his advance money and moved out of his tiny apartment in Queens and bought a house in New Jersey and, apparently, a car. Whereas previous ERP albums focus on a solitary man who only breaks his loner streak for the love of his good woman, The Gasoline Age takes to the highway in a “Shiny, Shiny Pimpmobile.” Sometimes it’s a “Cybercar” for a “Party Drive.” He hits the town with “Atlantic City (Gonna Make a Million Tonight).” Imagines where his car has been (“14th Street Boys Stolen Car Club”) and takes it onto the New Jersey highways where he drops “Tenafly,” “Hackensack” and Routes 26 and 22 like an experienced pro. The music is still recorded on his home recording unit while his ambitions remain Phil Spector high and deep. The keyboards bleed into the jangly guitars and the over-compressed reverbed vocals. For the first time, Cornog sounds excited and relieved, alive and glowing.

haunting, sad music

I was really surprised to read the above negative review of "Gasoline Age": I found the lyrics to be quite intelligent, disturbing, and their awkwardness a choice, rather than a mistake. There is a sense of humor lurking in the melancholy of this music that I found really fascinating, and the whole record really seemed, to me, a singular work of art. One of my favorites from ERP!

Wow

The hook for me was "Hell is an Open Door". Heard it on AM1190, CU Boulder's indie station. Loved the song and had to check out the rest of the album. I was (and still am) thoroughly impressed. This is one of those releases I keep coming back to whenever the right mood strikes. My favorite has to be "Atlantic City". Love it. Check it out.

Best record you never heard

I bought this album when it first came out, knowing nothing of the artist or his previous music. And I listened to it constantly. The album is so strong as a whole concept, from the mood and scenes it paints, to the fantastic evocative album artwork. The songs hold up, they've stayed with me over the years. Haunting, melancholy, darkly funny. More people should know this record.

East River Pipe is the guise of singer/songwriter F.M. Cornog, who began recording his melancholy one-man pop on a Tascam 388 mini-studio in his apartment in Astoria, NY. Born in Suffolk, VA, and raised in Summit, NJ, Cornog followed a difficult childhood with a series of jobs in a carpet warehouse, a greenhouse, and a light bulb factory. After a longstanding bout with alcoholism and an emotional breakdown cost him his job and left him homeless, Cornog hit rock bottom; while sleeping in a Hoboken...
