"Euringer is a counter-culture, surreal, psychedelic, art house, avant-garde, possibly posthumous concept project from Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence fame. Featuring guest vocals from Grimes, Serj Tankian (System Of A Down), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and Chantal Claret -- and also staring Jimmy's Mom and Dad for good measure! -- the record is one long song/musical/concerto, as if an underground movie was made for your ears. 'I wanted it to sound as if Depeche Mode hired J. Dilla and DJ Premier to drop loops while Frank Zappa produced, and then I came in and shit all over it,' said Jimmy. Now living in New Zealand full time ('the most awesome country in the world'), Jimmy shares his innermost musical insights through sixteen songs, two covers (Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights' and The Doobie Brothers classic 'What A Fool Believes') four guest stars and one Jimmy. Damn he is really hyping up this record -- it better be good! He continues, 'I was having fun exploring my brain and I wanted to invite my friends to have fun with me immersing myself in another time and space, bit by bit, gaining its form from my daily life into a surreal stream of consciousness.' From trigger warnings to Martin Niemöller quotes, from reading himself to boasting and testing, from touring the world to alcohol poisoning, from kissing your mother to dismissing his entire career, this two-year adventure is a mindfuck of Jimmy's escapist reality. 'Mathematically speaking I am breaking time into pieces of distance and moving through them diagonally at a rapid rate, says Jimmy. 'Naaaahh, I am just fucking with you. I just drank a whole bottle of Southern Comfort and wrote this album. A hallucination, a proclamation, a degradation? Or maybe its all just all a pile of bullshit I made up to stay relevant. Either way, I am right behind you.'"
