Found Out About You

The nearest I ever got to a hit record. 1995-6 4-track cassette demo (God knows how I got all those guitars happening) of a song for my then band Earcandy. I really think this could have launched us if we hadn't all had day jobs. Pretty much irrelevant now, but at the time when we played it we felt like Gods! As it was, we got a bunch of radio play but never followed through because the drummer quit. Oh, well.

Hold on to Love

For some reason I entered the New Year feeling despondent, so I wrote this to cheer myself up. So I suppose it's a resolution. [more inside]

Happy (Carpenters cover)

Popgasmic cover of the Carpenters' sappy-but-intriguingly-odd tune for the Carpenter's Coverfight which went live today. [more inside]

Best Get With Me

On Valentine's Day

On February 11th, 1963, the poet Sylvia Plath committed suicide. This is the song the elderly painter, Mr Thomas, who lived in the flat below hers, did not write about the event. An odd little ballad in 7/8. [more inside]

Santa Monica

The third song from my forthcoming solo album "This Is Hollywood," detailing a rather common theme in pop music: male prostitution along Santa Monica Blvd. in the early 90s.

Coast is Clear

The Zone was a band I was in for a couple of years in the early 80's. This was for an album originally pressed to vinyl, and just recently re-mastered out at Cedar Creek Studios where it was recorded, by Fred Remmert. I didn't write this song, but we all collaborated on arrangements. Written by my good friend Fred Mitchim. [more inside]

Get Up and Go

A simple, rough song I wrote in about 1986 and recorded a couple of years later. This was intended to be a bit of a Buddy Holly sort of thing. I wrote it, sang it, and played crappy guitar. [more inside]

Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies - "July"

"July" is the promo single from the upcoming Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies EP. "July" is the feel-good song of the month, if not the century. "July" is a tale of love, summertime, and ephemeral youth, told in the timeless language of pop music. [more inside]

Shiny New Thing Make It All Better

A peck of power pap for you pop-pickers to ponder, peruse and probably perforate. Inspired by this from one of my favourite websites The Daily Mash

Rock, Paper, Scissors (the single mix)

Shorter, sweeter mix of this responding to some of the suggestions on the last one. Lost the first intro, cleaned up the drums, changed the harmonies slightly, brought up the melody guitars, and dropped in a blazing little guitar solo, even if I do say so myself! It's under three minutes now -- give it a listen! Now just have to figure out the B-side...

Riptide

A silly pop song that I wrote for my band Boeufcake. We've been playing together for years, but we have few recordings worthy of sharing due to the tediousness of multitracking and the shit kicking good time we'd rather have drinking beer and playing loud. Be aware, there's a couple naughty words in this song. [more inside]

Millimeters of Mercury — Finish Last

Millimeters of Mercury is back after the end of finals at USC to present this decidedly retro electropop song that bounces and pounds in B flat major, occasionally straying into harmonic minor and dabbling in diminished chords and flat sevenths. Enjoy. =]

Simple Town (Full Version)

Feisty powerpop version of the a capella song I posted for the challenge. Man, this was another freakin' difficult song to mix, not least because it was the first one I did on my Yamaha HS50m monitors which Chococat recommended.You know when you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night in a hotel and accidentally turn on the overhead fluorescents and catch yourself stark naked in the most unflattering, pore-revealing detail and sort of gasp in horror? These speakers are like that. You fight them every inch of the way, not trying to get the song sounding good, but just to stop it sound so goddamn bad. [more inside]
