The title for this tape is obviously a poke at the old hair coloring ads. (Unfortunately, I've found it necessary to explain my pop-culture references to some people...) It's also a nod to my friend Karen Brady, who cut my hair while I was growing up and encouraged me to stick with learning the guitar and writing songs. In fact, the song "Karen Can't Sing To Him" may or may not be about her, depending on who is asking.

Sound-bites from this tape did pop up in two unusual places. My friend Kaaren (that's not a typo) Moffat included the guitar introduction to "Like An Aurora" on her answering machine for a long time. Of course, it was probably because the song was written about her. Still, it was nice to hear that more than one person who called her raved about the music and wanted to know what group it was.

The other place a sound-bite popped up was on a computer. At the start of side B, I say "Singing lessons? I don't need singing lessons. I need psychiatric help." (mp3) My friend Jeff "The Riffer" Mercer supposedly sampled it and made that the start-up sound for his or his wife's computer.

The cover art image pictured wasn't created until May 1997 to be part of the second version of my website. It is based on an idea of Keven's to use different hairstyles on my baby picture. Unfortunately, we never got around to doing it when the tape was completed, so it never got done.
