Fifth solo album, featuring 9 tracks recorded at Twisted Village, 12/95 to 6/97. Written and played by Wayne Rogers, except "Something In The Air" written by Speedy Keane. Limited vinyl version in hand-printed sleeve; (CD version on Drag City). Descriptive information about this one took it's time forthcoming, but here it is: "The album in the words of it's creator: 'It's rather like minimalism, except within one tone there is a thousand, and then several layers of a thousand, piled high like blankets of snow on a volcano. Actually, I didn't mean to say minimalist, I meant to say obnoxious. It's rather like obnoxiousism.' Constant Displacement began as a series of experiments in song form, mainly to satisfy the whims of the artist himself, who never intended it to be issued. How else to explain the wispy balladry, the balls-to-the-wall rock 'n' roll, or the six-minute version of a lousy Thunderclap Newman song? Constant Displacement is his fifth solo album, a tribute to Rock formalism based on traditions no loftier than Danish and South Asian renditions of 'Stepping Stone,' though he is apparently hearing something in them that no one else is."
