“Seasons of the Gonk” was originally intended to come out in 2006 as a conceptual subscription series of CD-Rs, à la the “Jewelled Antler Library” and Hand/Eye’s “Folklore of the Moon”. The basic idea was that subscribers would receive a brand new Golden Gonk piece every few weeks, which would work out as 2 pieces inspired by and released within each season of that year…but alas, soon after coming up with the idea I realised I had no fans who might be interested in such a thing…so yeah- the subscriber idea fell by the wayside, but I still went ahead and recorded most of the intended tracks during 2006 for my own amusement. Anyway- it wasn’t until summer 2010 that I decided to revisit the project and try to make something of it…so I recorded and mixed the tracks I never got around to in ’06 and had every intention of putting it out as a double CD-R, but for whatever reason this never happened either!! Oh well. None of this matters now though, ‘cos IT’S FINALLY OUT!!
