The Eels Daisies of The Galaxy 180g LP
180g Vinyl LP Reissue of 2000 Album!
Soon after returning home and contributing "Cancer For The Cure" to the film
"American Beauty," Mark Oliver Everett (aka E) went down to his basement to write and record the next
album. Less than 6 months after the release of Electro-Shock Blues, Daisies of
The Galaxy was finished.
Daisies of The Galaxy picked up where Electro-Shock Blues left off. "The
challenge was to figure out where one can go from Electro-Shock Blues, and I
wanted to go up," says E. Legendary producer Lenny Waronker likened the album to
"A nice walk in the park, where you're occasionally bitten by a snake."
R.E.M.'s Peter Buck guests on the album, and co-wrote the track, "Estate Sale."
The first single, "Mr. E's Beautiful Blues" was a hidden track on the album, yet
a substantial international hit. The video for the second single "Flyswatter"
featured drummer Butch as a clown on a police stakeout in front of E's home.
