"Gadfly" is the first, full length album released by La De Les. It is the result of two years of anticipation, the last 6 months of which have been relentless work writing, performing, and producing. "Gadfly" is the pinnacle of La De Les' accomplishments to date. The lyrical content of "Gadfly" is based on the Haiku, a Japanese poetry form. The entire album was written, performed, produced, and recorded by the La De Les. The recording was done at Charisma House and The Record Co. in Boston Massachusetts. The first 125 albums were handmade by La De Les at Charisma House. There are 100 editions and 25 artist proofs.
