03 25k - vampire deer

3rd song of plywood - an almost true story, except that i left a rather pointed note for the manager instead of going off with the money - this was the early 80s and 25k was a LOT of money back then [more inside]

The Bitter Lake

We're cheating slightly, as I've already uploaded a version of this song. But hopefully everyone will agree that it sounds a whole lot better. Plus we've added some (discrete) synth parts and have even gone to the trouble of making a video. More tunes on our Soundcloud.

Keep On Stumpin'

Getting drunk in the woods with some MeFites led to jokes about songs on a fictional country/bluegrass album called Keep On Stumpin', which led this afternoon to writing and recording the title track. Find a stump to dump the junk in your trunk on! [more inside]

Nyaee'aiiiem

Song #10 in Unu Kanto Po Semajno was an attempt to create some soothing ambient music, like blips and bleeps you'd hear on SomaFM's Space Station channel. However, It came out a twisted mutant, as you will discover. Wellpp, keep MeFi weird! Go ahead... press play, close your eyes and relaaaax.....

Don't Call It a Disease

As humans explore beyond the solar system and add themselves to the wider galactic population, they bring with them their cats. Likewise, the humans' cats bring with them their parasites. Over time, toxoplasma gondii alters its effects on humans and other sentient species, imparting a sense of spiritual enlightenment, thus leading to a new galactic religion. [more inside]
