|Studio album by Sonnyboy|
Dad Eye (written as Dadeye on the Amorphous Records site) is the debut and only album by Sonnyboy.
Dad Eye is the debut album of Sonnyboy, which is the solo musical project of Joe Cunningham (who previously played saxophone with Organic Mechanic). The album was released through Pat Finn and Karl Koch's record label Amorphous Records in 2003, sold on the label's website as well as in a number of record stores in Oregon. The album was produced in a limited quantity of 100 copies, however it is unknown how many copies were sold. Free downloads for the songs "What a Shame", "Step Outside Your Circle", and "The Less I Care" were made available on the website.
All mentions of the album were removed from the Amorphous Records website at some point between February and April of 2004 for unknown reasons. Koch suggests it may have been as a result of the breakup of Organic Mechanic, stating in a Q&A:
|hmm... i dont remember.. likely the rupture of Organic Mechanic meant Pat didnt want to support his ex band mates projects. Unless im totally forgetting what actually happened.|
Amorphous Records provides a brief description of the album:
Sonnyboy is the solo outing of singer/songwriter/sax player Joe Cunningham [Organic Mechanic, 5 Fingers of Funk]. This album moves nicely between satisfying pop songwriting, trancey jazz moments and aggro rock attacks, alternately evoking good vibes of The Police, The Pixies, and The Flaming Lips. Limited edition of 100 copies!
