'Expert in all...master of none'. Upfront dark satire, lurid absurdity and pseudo-psychological lesson plans. As a backdrop, a neo-traditional bent, culminated by a favorable twist on vintage sounds. Songs are filled with playfully sinister fiction-offered to the audience as fact...of course. Professor Gall seeks to uncover the contradictions of an ambiguous and nativeless society, 'dreaming the existentialists' dream', while at the same time pleading for individualism, peace, and more fun at funerals. Enter Drew Norman, the guitarist and influential songwriter of Portland, Oregons' The Cow Trippers, hired hand for The Sort Of's (Chris Robley's Quintet), and BB's Fistfull of Babies (featuring many musicians including Paul Brainard). Drew has been working on his Professor Gall alter ego in spare moments while the 'Trippers released three critically acclaimed albums during '99 to '04, performing at many regional festivals (including NXNW), building a following in west coast markets, and at the same time touring extensively in western North America as a solo artist. These travels have taken him as far south as Mulege', Mexico and as far north as Fairbanks, Alaska supporting his solo CD 'Safe At Home'. Using many of the same musicians, as well as some newcomers (including some March Fourth Marching Band horn players), the conglomerate presents 'Intravenous Delusion', the first full length studio album to date to be released on their own BEW Records label.
