Of Possible Interest:

All of Goff’s piano and Matchett’s guitar bits on “Lena Still Lurks Hereabouts” were influenced by the untimely passing of Turkey Makes Me Sleepy member: Michael Adams, in January, 2022. The lyrics of “Lena Still Lurks Hereabouts” are a collage of verbiage extracted from several Michael Adams original recordings.

Goff dreamed the vocal melody for “In The Stars” on February 18, 2021.

Goff dreamed the overall melody for “Holophote” on April 14, 2022.

The following artists provided particular inspiration for creating the unique pieces presented in this collection: Taemin, 2NE1, The Residents, Billlie, Frank Zappa, Everglow, Robert Fripp, Lee Hi, Brian Eno, Todd Rundgren

Heartbreaking Randomness is the first-ever collection of Goff’s recordings to be released in a vinyl record format (that means about 50 years of Goff’s recordings precede this historic release).
