Studio - The Fireman / One Little Indian / ATO
Album Release Date: 24.Nov.2008
Electric Arguments was the third studio album from The Fireman and their first to feature vocals. Its 13 varied tracks were recorded in 13 days, over a period of nearly a year. It's also the first Fireman album to be acknowledged by Paul as his work, featuring his and producer Youth's names on the artwork for the first time. Released by the independent labels One Little Indian and ATO, Electric Arguments topped the Billboard Independent Charts and was the first album by The Fireman to reach the UK and US top 75. Its title comes from a poem by Allen Ginsberg, an influence on Paul at the time, as he'd been “looking at the beauty of word combinations rather than their meaning.” The album was a huge critical success, with Rolling Stone referring to it as “the ex-Beatle's headiest music in years.”
