about

The Great Hoax return in 2013 with a brand new 7 track ep 'Dark Matter' an experimental new batch of songs, that sounds like:'Tom Waits and Captain Beefheart' meeting Nine Inch Nails'- Nick Swanson 'The Great Hoax'.

Dark Matter is the most original batch of composotiions possibily ever!, combining elements of Jazz, hip hop, trip hop,rock, blues, noise, and mild country groaning.

A lot of The chord arrangements were arranged 'blindfolded'' meaning the chords were arranged by 'hitting all the notes' your not supposed to and the lead on songs such as:

'Bubblewrap Universe' and 'Hoz and Reality Showz' was not even rehearsed, as the notes hit 'make no musical sense what so ever' to make an industrail nine inch nail'ish sound.'

'Its a 'mini' concept album about a blues man going crazy!'.
I came up with the lyrics in what i call my crazy diary of what was going through my head as i was living off noodles, with bad pay, stressed out, no sleep watching mind numbing TV', after a while you can't tell the difference bewteen dreams and reality and the two get blured'.
