Birthday Boy

By Brandon Adamson


An obscure 90’s oddity, Birthday Boy‘s aesthetic resembles something of a “Lo-Fi Leisure Suit Larry.” The song, “Right Back Where I Started” chronicles the love life of the character Michael from the show, “Melrose Place.” If fact, those who remember the show can probably recognize the chronologically accurate storyline and the women being referenced in the lyrics.

Originally released on cassette in 1996, this is one the most unusual recordings from a highly experimental era of indie alternative music.
