Album Notes
If you’ve never lived in Alaska, you probably won’t understand this song. It’s about the Permanent Fund Dividend, or PFD, a big check that all Alaskans receive every October. Right now the state is in serious financial straits, and its governor and legislature are grappling with possible solutions. Some politicians are looking to the Permanent Fund as a revenue source, which would reduce the annual dividend. While the song is written with Hurricane Dave's trademark humor, its message is weighty. But is the singer serious, or are the words satirical? The listener will have to decide.
This single was recorded and mixed at The Man Cave in Anchorage, with Michael Faubion at the helm.
Instruments and vocals: Hurricane Dave, acoustic guitar, harmonica, lead and background vocals; Tom Torvie, bass, background vocals; Michael Faubion, percussion, background vocals; Matt Faubion, background vocals; Rosie O'Doggie and the Hell Hound Choir, canine cacophony.
Special thanks to Gov. Mike Dunleavy, for dropping a massive cow pie on Alaskan taxpayers and other residents, thus inspiring this song.
