I Want to Rock by Logan Whitehurst and The Jr. Science Club
Logan Whitehurst began uploading his original songs to mp3.com back in 1997 and gained a strong online following for his music. His quirky songs were regularly played on Dr. Demento and often compared to the likes of They Might Be Giants. Whitehurst was a multi-instrumentalist and an accomplished graphic artist. Tragically, Logan passed away from a brain tumor at the age of 29.
Lee Rosevere of Happy Puppy Records worked with the Whitehurst family to provide the world this 10 song, posthumous anthology of Logan's work.
The following introduction was written by Lee Rosevere to accompany the release of the collection on Happy Puppy Records in April 2009.
I first became a fan of Logan's music back in 2000, during the 'golden age' of mp3.com. I contacted him and we exchanged a few brief emails and I bought a bunch of CDs from him. His GOODBYE MY 4-TRACK album was a Top 10 albums of 2003 for me.
Fast forward to 2004, and Logan is diagnosed with a brain tumor. He fought it with all the strength he had, but sadly the tumor didn't go away and Logan passed away as a result of it in December 2006 at the unfair young age of 29.
Logan's music was fun, thought-provoking, catchy and he had a fantastic gift for melody. With the permission of his family, Happy Puppy Records is proud to release AN INTRODUCTION TO..., a personal mix of some of our favorite tracks from his downloadable catalog.
If you like what you hear, I would strongly recommend buying any of his albums from his official store, or download all of the albums he made available on mp3.com plus lots more here at the Jr. Science Club Archive.
Meanwhile, please enjoy this sampler and please share it with someone else. We miss you, Logan.
