Details.

Gerard came out of the Atlanta garage folk music scene, influenced by “left of the dial” bands like Husker Du and The Replacements. His ragged folk music helped to define the singer-songwriter scene of the 80’s and 90’s in the Southeast. Many writers cite him as an important influence-lyrically, rhythmically and melodically. He had many collaborators including Michelle Malone, Michael Lorant, Indigo Girls, and went on to form various bands such as 54th Mile and The Crafties. Gerard also delved into writing quirky, sometimes spooky, children’s music.

Gerard returned to Daemon to release this CD in 2002. The production focused more on a full band but still maintained it’s punkish folk qualities. One reviewer says, “At times, Tales of Madness & Horror is lyrically strange, but I love this CD because it is varied; the songs are about something with each being unique; and I can listen to it repeatedly without getting bored. Don't miss it!”
