‘Too Tough To Live’ finds Dan Sartain operating at the opposite end of his range, with this album becoming a tribute to when punk was real, MAAAAAAN!!!!! 13 tracks delivered in less than 20 minutes; an average rate of a new tune every 1 minute, 30 seconds.
Recorded at Lucky Cat, San Francisco, ‘Too Tough To Live’ finds Sartain running fresh out of patience with a whole itinerary of hassles – department stores, death, the unseeing eye, the all-seeing eye, heaven, hell, Vietnam, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays – and YOU!
The (UK only) single taken from the album, ‘Now Now Now’, features Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s as guest-star – the two met at a brain trust of sorts in San Francisco, known as a Star Trackâ„¢ convention. After some begging and namedropping from Sartain, Wiedlin was convinced, and the two achieve a forced human interaction paralleled by none!
