Sandstorm

So I play in this cover band back home that is a bit heavier in terms of sound and we have a keyboard player so I keep saying we should do a metal version of Sandstorm. No one believes me that it will work so I decided to make a quick demo to show them what is possible. A super metal lead guitar takes the place of the lead synth, the chords are from my dad's old Roland JX-8P, bass is my Stingray 5, and the drums are factory keyboard drums performed live on the Roland DP-90. sandstorm Great song!!!!


Live. Laugh. Leach.

Blaseball is on siesta, so I took the opportunity to write this tribute to the Kansas City Breath Mints' favorite pitcher: a dirtbag lich who loves to vape, drink Four Loko and throw walks. [more inside]

Jazz Trio Improv #1

I recently did a fairly significant overhaul to my recording setup - trying out the new rig with a jazz trio type format with an improvised double bass part which I mic'd and DI'd the pickup & blended the two together. Stereo piano is from the Roland DP-90 and the drums are the factory brushes kit from the DP-90 also.


That's All It Took

With five of us living in a small downtown Toronto house, I don't get a whole heck of a lot of music recording time. I recently had a few days all alone for the first time in over a year (ch-ch-changes!) so me and the dog lit a fire and recorded a cover of a Gram & Emmylou song by way of the George Jones & Gene Pitney original, featuring some guitars and the old family Heintzman piano.

Cuban Heels

Posting this as a companion piece to Uncleozzy's used car salesman track. It's a demo that I never really finished because it sounds like an outtake from Pretzel Logic. One of those unpleasant realisations that dawns on you when you've nearly finished something and you go "Ohhhh fuuuuck....". But it did amuse me to include a sly nod to Rikki Don't Lose That Number in the chorus (the bass line), which of course itself is a nod to Horace Silver's Song For My Father. A lot of nodding going on there...... [more inside]
