People try to get me to cut my hair
But I can't even bother with what I wear
People try to make me feel bad
I guess I'll never be just what I am, but I am...
I'm a strange one... and I guess it just has to be that way...
...in the early 2000's there was a decent run where HolySons played pretty consistently in Portland, Oregon and this song is one of the main results from that era... Looking back now it was part of a group of songs that were built upon the work of folk singers like Fred Neil,, acknowledging their approach as an essential aspect of how American music has evolved & wanting to write things in that 'classic' sounding form - ..its the final song that'll be released from the sessions that featured Grails' violinist Timothy Horner & William Slater from Grails on piano ---- 'I Want to Live a Peaceful Life' was characterized by a specific kind of too-much-pot-smoking paralyzation... and "No Self Respect" was meant to be the lead off track of the follow up album - unfortunately a chain of dominoes fell into a pattern that suppressed the song for 10 years... thankfully it finally found a place on The Fact Facer..
