Suffragette City

When I was assigned this tune for the David Bowie 'Ziggy Stardust' challenge, I was a little worried that I couldn't really manage it, somehow. But I had fun with it and I think it turned out OK. Plus I got this total blam-blam to help me with the promo clip, which you can viddy, my little droogie, at YouTube or Vimeo.

Polk Salad Annie

Here's my humble version of Louisiana-born singer/songwriter Tony Joe White's most well-known tune. Recorded live at SABACO in Waseda, Tokyo on December 9, 2010. Loved this song ever since I first heard it at age 12. Here I'm using is the Vietnamese jaw harp called the Dan Moi, plus a wobbly, warbly drone from the JUNO 60 analog synth. Video here.

Keep Your Hands Off Of It

My cover of a Jerry Lee Lewis outtake, a breathtakingly stupid song. Video at YouTube or Vimeo. Note: audio version includes special introduction not heard on video! Video, on the other hand, includes beautiful girl with weird hair emerging from a tube! [more inside]

Hallelujah (drone version)

Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.

Deixa Isso Pra La

For the current MeFiMu Challenge, here's a song in a language I don't speak. This bit of Portuguese proto-rap is a longtime standard in Brazil. [more inside]

Blue Train (the slow one)

I loved baby_balrog and his band's rollicking original of this tune. For this cover, I figured I'd take the train down another track: slowed way down (down on the ground), stripped way down (just vocal and strumstick), and with a little different shade of blue for the engineer's hat.

Don't Play Cards With Satan (D.Johnston)

Took a look at this month's challenge themes and thought: Tom Waits does a much better Tom Waits impersonation than I could ever muster, and I'm just not a 'lots of notes' kinda guy. But, "spooky"... there you go! Submitted for your listening pleasure, my version of this Daniel Johnston song. With lines like "I saw my own heart laying, black with blood", I guess you could say it's pretty damn spooky. Here's a very powerful clip of Johnston performing the song on organ. [more inside]
