James Jackson Toth - First Thought First Thought PIAPTK - 325
The Prodigal Toth returns to PIAPTK after half a decade of lying way too low. It's not hyperbole to say that JJT is probably the only reason PIAPTK made it out of our infancy by getting us our first bit of press and interest, way back in 2006. PIAPTK started as a fleeting joke and would have probably ended that way had I not crossed paths with James... and I'm not sure if I should "Bless or Blame", as Kristofferson would say, for it. He has been uncharacteristically quiet in the last few years, only quietly releasing solo demos while focusing on his band, One Eleven Heavy and releasing his EXCELLENT Podcast, The Toth Zone (definitely check it out).
Limited to about 75 copies or whatever we sell in the first week or so.
On Clear Lathe Cut 10"s in Silkscreened Chipboard Sleeves with a Unique, hastily taken and probably blurry, JJT Selfie on the front. Each one is Unique!
Hastily recorded home recordings, Dec 2021-Jan 2022
Mostly first takes
1. You Owe It To Yourself
This was written to be the penultimate track on an aborted concept album / rock opera about a corrupted “mama’s boy” (see track 3). This song finds our lamb-like protagonist, having now been seduced by the lure of necromancy, in congress with demons.
2. Bad Habit
Everything I write in open G tuning (DGDGBD) sounds like I’m trying to rip off Keef or Westerberg. Which…well, you know.
3. Mama’s Boy
Written for the aforementioned (aborted) concept album / rock opera. This would have been an early track on the record introducing the main character.
4. What Am I Gonna Do (With You)?
Written and recorded in record time. Sorry about the canned drums.
