Burnside Album Details

Greenberger, David and Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound, They like me around here

In a follow up to their 2009 Cherry Picking Apple Blossom Time, artist David Greenberger (best known for 32 years of his periodical, The Duplex Planet) reprises his collaboration with Paul Cebar for the release of their new CD of monologues with music, They Like Me Around Here. Greenberger’s conversations with elderly at Sheboygan, Wisconsin meal sites, community centers,assisted living and nursing home, and private residences became the basis for the text he created. Recording with the full band in Milwaukee, Greenberger and Cebar then completed the work. This is Greenberger’s art: eschewing oral history, abstracting dialogues by shaping them into works that resonate with shared humanity. Over the years he has worked with a range of musical collaborators, including Terry Adams (of NRBQ), David Hidalgo & Louis Perez (of Los Lobos), 3 Leg Torso, and Birdsongs of the Mesozoic with his next venture being with Robyn Hitchock. Guitarist and songwriter Paul Cebar has been leading his Milwaukee-based bands for the past several decades.
