It was re-mastered and re-released by Higney's own label, Kebrutney Records, in 2003. The remaster also included Higney's 1980 7-inch single "I Wanna be the King", b/w "Funky Kinky". The former song was a tribute to artist]New York Dolls guitarist and punk legend Johnny Thunders, and contained the line "I'm gonna be a star / I hate the sissy music of John Denver", whilst the latter was a foray into the world of disco. Both songs were written by Higney, and featured Gordon Gaines and Mark Volpe, plus John Lynch (bass guitar). Gaines died in 1997.
In 2009, Higney released the "follow up" (30 years later) to "Attic Demonstration" - it is titled "American Dirt" and contains fourteen songs, many of which were written about the same time as those on "Attic Demonstration". As this album was recorded with the intention of being released as an actual recording (as opposed to "Attic Demonstration" which was originally conceived as demo versions of songs), Higney enlisted the help of hired guns - Jack Pearson (formerly of The Allman Brothers Band), Elizabeth Pearson, William Howse, Richard Carter and others - to produce a more professional recording. "American Dirt" was described by one radio dj as if a record label had heard "Attic Demonstration" and given Higney money to record a "proper album". 2011 saw the release of Higney's third album - "Ambulance Driver" - which contained ten new recordings with one song, "Nonsense", coming from the days of "Attic Demonstration" and the remaining nine songs being, pretty much, newly written.
This release contains Higney's most recently written songs, among them "Angels Touched The Ground", "Jet Party" and, the newest of them all, "Broken By A Whore". Higney continues to write and record and is expected to release a new cd in 2012. Read more on Last.fm.
