Norman, Oklahoma


Thomas Anderson's latest album, entitled Norman, Oklahoma, was recorded in Austin, Texas, and released on Zuma/Red River Records in May 2003. The album features twelve original songs and employs the services of musicians ranging from bassist Cindy Toth, formerly of the Reivers; to guitarist Mark Lyon of Keri Leigh & the Blue Devils; to drummer Freddy Krc, whose credits include work with Roger Waters, Jerry Jeff Walker and Carole King.

This is Anderson's first full-length album in about six years. It's loud.

"Anderson is one of the most intelligent, literate and, best of all, funniest songwriters in rock. He balances pungent satire with a heart as big as a blue whale, and laces his relentless verbiage with aggressive folk rock melody. With sharp tunes like 'Dollars For Doomsday,' 'Tough Love,' 'Football Will Save Our Town' and more, Norman, Oklahoma is Anderson's most potent album yet. If you've yet to partake of his distinctive genius, start here." -- Michael Toland, High Bias
