WAYNE ROGERS - constant displacement CD, Drag City




“CD issue of a prior 1999 LP release. Constant Displacement began as a series of experiments in song form, mainly to satisfy the whims of the artist himself, who never intended it to be issued. How else to explain the wispy balladry, the balls-to-the-wall rock ‘n’ roll, or the six-minute version of a f*cking Thunderclap Newman song? Constant Displacement is Wayne’s fifth solo album, a tribute to Rock formalism based on traditions no loftier than Danish and South Asian renditions of ‘Stepping Stone,’ though he is apparently hearing something in them that no one else is.”
