ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Trumpland tracks were written and performed by me, John McClellen of John Mac and the Moraggots. Special thanks to noted SF Bay area drummer and percussionist for his beats on the album’s title track Trumpland, See You Again, Creepy, Sideways to Sunday and Heater Vent. I recorded the songs at home between 2015 and 2019, using Protools 8 and Macbook Pro. I used both Fender Jazz and Precision basses, playing these directly into the recording interface. I mic'ed my circa 1980 Mesa Boogie for electric guitars and used a vocal mic on the acoustic guitar parts. Finally, I sang while the business of the household went on around me. As a result, the careful listener may hear an occasional meow or clatter of pans on the stove top..

Although inspired in part by the 2016 presidential campaign and the subsequent election of Donald Trump, these songs also deliver apolitical insights and my observation of a life come to bel dominated by cell phones, social media and excess. "Pull Down the Shade" was inspired by my friend's battle struggle with mental illness and "See You Again" is my tribute to the passing of friend and fellow musician Von Radics. For my friends who've known me longest, I include an updated version of "Heater Vent," first written and performed in the early 1980s by me, Spinrad and exceptional electric bassist John Dennison as Virgin Release.

Play loud and enjoy! John
