John, Love the lilypad suite. Great vocals & superb guitar work! Was curious as to the origin of "a perfect party." Did you use something already recorded or was it made specifically for the EP?
a perfect party was an accident.... we were finishing up a vocal session, and Elliot, Dean's son was goofing around, we stuck some headphones on him and he started pretending to sing.... then Dean jokingly asked him to sing us a real song...I hit record...and he just started singing this song.... it was an amazing moment...
Could you shed any light on why Porcupine Tree have not come to Minnesota the past 6 North American Tours? Is it purely based on the lack of interest/confidence from the promoters?John Wesley responded on 03/30/2011 Next question
John, all your solo work is amazing. Can I ask about the first one Under the Red...? The lyrics are emotionally draining, sad and beautiful. Were the lyrics a personal story or someone else's?John Wesley responded on 03/30/2011
