Sin City

Humbler than Thou

Yesterday I sat down behind the old Roland VR drum kit I passed down to my son at Christmas this year to adjust the hardware and give the set up a test run. I recorded a quick video of myself improvising a little groove, but later in the evening, I couldn't help myself and came back to the recording and used a free multitracking app on my phone to record some ridiculous overdubs. The sound quality is awful, of course, but this was a lot of fun to make and really helped me keep my spirits up yesterday on coronation day. [more inside]

What Happens Next?

Challenge: Do what scares you? I'm scared of death and the concept of eternity. While I'm NOT about to DO that, I could write a song distilling my fears about said subject matter, yes? Yes. OK, it's a deal, then.
