A Ramones cover, from their last album Adios Amigos.
The second song from our first self-recording session. This one rides on a solid bassline, and has a big chorus and a powerful ending.

Another song from last week's live show - not sure how I got so lost there at the end, but otherwise it's a good version. Previously.
As the lady says, this is a cover of a John Lennon tune recorded live last Friday night in Pomona.

One last shot / Give it all you got Take a chance babe, I’m taking mine [more inside]
I wrote this song to try and get into the head of a friend who is rarely faithful. RPM Challenge version.
Some very unserious punk rock from Red On Strike. Garage version.

A Velvet Underground cover from our recent recording session
Another "raw mix" alcohol-related song, this time as the solution to, instead of cause of, all life's problems.

A slow(er) one from my band Red On Strike
I know you never meant to bring it quite to this place And everybody watching can see it's a hell of a show I know you're only feeling like a mouse in a rat race But there's just one thing I think you ought to know If it's down to me or you, you got to go
This is a Red On Strike recording from about 6 years ago, and features a great live intro from Red...

Another rockin' tune from Red On Strike...
This is a song written by Red On Strike's rhythm guitarist, Camron Gasser, inspired by a particularly bad day at work. Can't you see bleeding hands don't lie?
