BIOGRAPHICAL TRIVIA -Laura Krier

NOTHING BUT TROUBLE...

I was born in Parkston, South Dakota, November 23rd, which makes me a borderline Scorpio (sex maniac) ? but mostly Sagittarius (half-horse, half-woman). I?ve spent most of my life trying to overcome my true nature. I am not a completely self-taught musician... Bless my teachers and their efforts. They deserve more respect and better pay. I gave up piano lessons about the time I turned twelve... At 12, I was as tall as I am now with hairy legs, pimples and braces? for some strange reason, that?s when all the trouble began.

I got married when I was 21? a lovely guy: almost ruined his life, filed for divorce, moved to Japan and joined forces with THE KITCHEN BROS. Those guys could play. Better yet, they loved to cook: New Age Japanese men. We like that. As for me, I avoid cooking when I can. I always manage to burn stuff? and the food, too.

Meanwhile, back in South Dakota, my brother died mysteriously, and I had a nervous breakdown so I moved to Liverpool in favor of being able to talk to someone about it in my own language? little did I know? I still speak a little Scouse, particularly when I feel like beating someone up. I studied in Liverpool at Paul McCartney?s ?fame? school until I ran out of money. I left a name for myself there? like all good rock chics should.

I starved a lot in England, wrote some weird music & became vastly popular with the men?s working clubs in Lancashire, Merseyside and Wales. Good money. I OWE MY EXISTENCE to Mark from VIVA Studios in Lancaster for his initial kick up the butt (and to a whole lot of other people who are going to be mad because their names aren?t here but some of you probably want to remain anonymous.)

My producer, Paul Zigmund Sedkowski studied physics, philology, sociology, economics? music? AND speaks five languages. I?ve discovered that Polish people are among the smartest people in the world. He smokes a lot of Prince cigarettes and drinks way too much coffee. He doesn?t do any other drugs, though. He sang and wrote for Prince Scandal in the 80?s ? he?s been writing great songs for years. He got fed up with his band when all the equipment was stolen, and they cashed in on the insurance, leaving him for broke. Lucky for me I found him in Spain some years later, still writing great songs and living just in time for the moment.

Graham Keeling is the Godfather of this first album, finding me at Sharky?s Beach in Spain singing an old Aretha Franklin tune. He pulled some strings and got me an audition with Paul. Graham?s a good natured classy guitar player. He?s also unbelievably talkative and trustworthy. He?s definitely one of the good guys. So is Paul and on top of that, THEY ARE BRILLIANT MUSICIANS.

MANY THANKS... MUCHAS GRACIAS...

THESE PEOPLE HAVE EITHER CONTRIBUTED IN MANY WAYS TO THIS MUSIC AND/OR TO KEEPING ME ALIVE. SORRY FOR NOT WARNING YOU ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE GETTING YOURSELVES INTO. I PLEAD THE 5TH.
