In late 2009, "Manik" Myk Thompson suggested we revive our long dormant collaboration with
some recording of an experimental/psychedelic nature. I countered by
suggesting that we do so with the goal of a recording a second album
under The Vertigo Swirl identity. We began with a day of improvisation
that yielded "Jeremy's First Flight", "Third Sun from the Stone" and the
compositional beginnings of "The Megalith". I added my contributions
to some tracks that Myk had begun at home ("We've Got Electricity",
"Molehill Sherpa", "Loneliness Is a Choice" and "Got Yer Back") while
he, in turn, added guitar to my own pet projects ("You Belong in Outer
Space" and "The Megalith"), a couple of guest performers did their thing
and, voila, we had A New Swirled Record - eight paths of excess trod by
two psychedelic brothers in arms.
