'Death By Misadventure' is built around the epic song cycle, 'The Fall of the Queen Bee', a peculiar assortment of songs taking place in her kingdom, Colony, including the ultimate death of The Queen and her court by decadent misadventure. The Story of Her Most Royal Majesty is aptly illustrated in the indulgent short film, 'The Queen Bee Is Dead'. This is, of course, a fictional work, and any resemblance to real people living, dead or otherwise, is completely true. A worldly darkness prevails throughout this record, though occasional shards of light break through with songs like Carrie and Supervirgin, which continue the age-old tradition of melodic Green Pajamas pop songs.
Death By Misadventure marks the thirtieth album/EP by The Green Pajamas. Toss in The Goblin Market and some Jeff Kelly solo albums - thats a splendid body of work by Seattles longest running, most prolific band. Death By Misadventure is a fine new chapter in the grand drama.
