about

This was the Sun's fourth album and one which I felt the best for the songwriting. Following up "Mind Flip" wasn't easy. We had been working out those songs for awhile and touring all over the U.S. when I started writing the Fizzy Lift album. The first tracks we recorded in L.A. with Keith Olsen were during our '94 tour still with keyboardist John Holt and Steve Bunck. We cut tracks: Ten Ways Amazed, Annie Emptyhead, Sleepwalker, Dragonfly and Starting to See during the week we played in Los Angeles. A year later, we returned to L.A. to record the rest of the album with new drummer, Matt Martin. It was a really hard time living out in California and making the album that some days, Doug and I would think the pursuit of being a rocker wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Before we started our long days in the studio, we'd eat breakfast at Denny's. It was there we talked about chucking it all, getting a job at Denny's and hitting on the waitress. That inspired the opening number, "Denny's Girl." We hope you enjoy "Fizzy Lift" in all its high-resolution glory available for the first time to download. -Tim Rose (guitarist/songwriter for the Sun)
