TRIPPING IN THE DARK
the astronauts returned from the recording facility on the space station after 10 years
the debut CD
Harrington's new music varies from his other work, so a new
name was chosen: Rubbernekkerz
It is more textured, and the emphasis is placed on creating a mood
Rubbernekkerz deliver an introspective range of alt-pop songs that create an emotional mood from a layering of sounds. Acoustic and synthetic textures blend to create a spacey backdrop for lyrics that (on the first CD) circled around the reflective and often melancholy themes of time, youth, and aging. "Tripping in the Dark" has continued on that path, including guilt, deception, and dreamscapes.

----- Lemmings ------
The song Lemmings, from the new CD, refers to the myth that Lemmings are suicidal animals. In fact, as detailed on snopes.com and elsewhere, this is false. The Disney company may have caused the accidental deaths of some of these creatures during a 1958 documentary filming in Alberta, Canada. Of course, the metaphor in the song lyric is meant to represent self-destructive behaviour, not suicide.

Welcome David Bowie fans: Hi! Well, I was hoping that at least this page would be recognized by search engines as having some David Bowie content. You see, David Bowie is mentioned here a few times for good reason. David Bowie's tune Changes (recorded over 30 years ago) has been covered on Rubbernekkerz new CD. Well, anyone who likes David Bowie music may well like to hear the Rubbernekkerz version, but they've never heard of Rubbernekkerz! So, if they use a search engine, they might just type in David Bowie and find Rubbernekkerz.
