I have a friend (Billy Lonas, email: billyclonas@yahoo.com) who doesn’t like to “toot his own horn” but he is a really good “old school” country & western song writer. Sooooo, I am tooting his horn for him, lol. This song, which I helped him record in a good studio with professional musicians, is powerful, and especially timely and meaningful, with the current social/political clime in our country. The title is “Let Them Run Free” and the song speaks about Mustang horses being able to have land to run free, as well as how the human race is selfishly and shortsightedly ruining our planet. Please consider giving it some air time on your show.

What does the name ‘No Serial Killer’ signify? 

It refers to the fact that as a 46 year old, I am happy to have not turned into a serial killer. By 2019 standards, I’m doing pretty well. If any of our listeners is a serial killer, you’re not welcome to be one of our fans. We only want ‘no serial killers’ to like ‘No Serial Killer’. Killing people due to one’s own inadequacies we find deeply offensive. Don’t hurt others is the message. 

What does ‘Bass Piano’ mean? 

All of our tracks use piano as the bass guitar in the song. There is no bass guitar in any song. 'Yes I do' has no piano at all though. 

Influences? 

Sigue Sigue Sputnik. Rock and roll of all eras. Any music with a good vibe. We take influences from music, TV, movies, video games, life in general etc. 

Why is the group faceless? 

This is a one-off project so our personalities are irrelevant. I wanted to make a great album and we've achieved that goal. The album is entitled ‘The Greatest Music Album In Recorded Human History’. It’s our way of saying we think the music is quite good. :) 13 tracks, all classics in their own right. How many albums do you know of where there are absolutely no filler tracks? Every song is fantastic! 

When will the album be released? 

May 2019. 

Who are you? 

I am AKM. I wrote all of the songs, played the bass piano on all tracks and offered vocal direction to the singers. I have used a variety of professional singers and session musicians on the album. I’m British. The vocalists and session musicians are American. 

How do I contact you?

Late King Daisy is the new project from Canadian A. Dyjecinski (ex Beggars Banquet bands Dracula Legs & Magic & Fur). In the years since his last release “The Valley of Yesiree” (2016 Rough Trade / Kartel MG), Dyjecinski has been focused on creating and stockpiling songs while developing his craft. In a sense, over time, the songs have come to take on an identity of their own, Dyjecinski explains. “I feel it deserves it’s own identity moving forward. The name feels like ‘me’ rather than a character that I inhabit, yet allows for an important separation and development."

The song is about needing the strength of a superhero to overcome adversity in life.  The "Hipppopotaman" has that very strength.  In my finer moments, I am him.
