Ottsville and Beyond

After releasing Bad Crap presents “Ottsville” in 2007, the band and I decided to hit the studio to refine what we learned. The first CD was fueled by a couple of buddies who were huge WEEN and Frank Zappa fans, and we just wanted to see if we could make an album. After “Ottsville” was a success, we began working on a set of songs called the “Off to the Races” sessions back in early 2009. The process was a little more refined this time, complete with pre-production planning sessions and scratch demo sessions that really started to give shape to the whole project. The goal was to keep the raw Bad Crap spirit alive, while beefing up our music theory and approach to writing.

Early on there was an idea that the Bad Crap should expand it’s capabilities by creating and open rotation of musicians who contribute in the writing process. So that became a focus quickly, and I think that idea of expanding the group really improved the over all mood of the project. Not too far in we decided the collection of songs, didn’t really remind us of going off to the races anymore, rather they made us feel as if we were setting off on an epic journey. The songs felt symbolic towards our new writing approach of taking on the unknown and going after a bigger fish. And there is no bigger fish out there than Moby Dick, so naturally the title began to take shape. Bad Crap in “The Quest for the White Whale”.
