Here is a cover of Q Lazzarus's "Goodbye Horses" made famous I'm told in Silence of the Lambs and Clerks 2.
This is... baroque electronic dance rock? Well, perhaps. I think it will keep you entertained for 5 minutes, at any rate. There are a lot of things that go whoosh, a thing that goes ping, and rather a lot of things doing things near the end. [more inside]
I recorded my first band. ( Nessie James & The Unknowns) Was my first paid studio gig time. This is the 2nd mix of sorts. Still more to add. [more inside]
A song I wrote about a trip to Texas with a girl in 1989. [more inside]
Little ditty about young love, the joys of suburban Massachusetts in autumn, and the allure of all those wonderful things behind the counter at drugstores. [more inside]
a song by my band, fm campers. don't really know where this falls, genre-wise... electronic rock noise-pop? [more inside]
Regarding living among humans. I've finally completed recording, mixing and mastering the first song using my new Logic Express-based studio. How's the mix? Can you hear everything? Does it have too much bass?
I am re-posting this at the suggestion of another user, this time with lyrics included. This and others are available here. Looking at Wiches Some say they're having a pretty good time And they're working on quitting this town. Everything's working out fine for me. You should see the way I get around. Like a dry drunk Down at the mall. Looking at watches, He feels something crawl Out of a memory He has of a girl. Looking at witches, Down at the mall. And ain't we got friends that are long ago gone and that's all that we want them to be? Nothing but nothing And nothing alone Could make them mean nothing to me. Sometimes in winter you get to go home. You get to dress darkly. You hang up the phone. You walk home from Pittsburgh With one thing in mind. Sometimes in winter, you leave things behind. And we miss when you sing Those old country songs. We get them for free around here, but we don't keep them long. Because we can't keep them long.
Oh, those stupid things we do to get some or to find someone. I can think back and laugh...some I'd like to forget. [more inside]
An upbeat demo about plastic surgery from my next album. [more inside]
The opening tack of the SMUT album by the same name. [more inside]
Another newie from my band Bring A Guillotine, electro-ish intro, then roccckk! Enjoy! [more inside]
A cautionary tale about buying drugs in Quebec. [more inside]
Perhaps you can guess from the title, but this is a breakup song.
Synthy nerd rock about goth kids who find love at the happiest place on Earth. [more inside]
song about drugs & cops &tc [more inside]
Another Geese song, this one's new. Wrote it this afternoon. Sounds like I stumbled into a Pearl Jam/Stone Temple Pilots song, circa 1992. Ah, well. Enjoy. [more inside]
A pastoral blues...or something like that. [more inside]
I wanted to do some backwards guitar over a little Bill Laswellish bass and ended up with some sort of half-assed Barney Miller thing. Shit happens, I guess.
For the sake of completeness, if "Medicine Man" had been an A-side this - a natural companion piece in mood and texture - would have been the flipside. Obviously on an impeccably cool label (Elektra, Sire, Stiff, Island pre-sell off). Well.....I can dream... [more inside]
A wrinkled roue ruminates rudely..... Special, exclusive, once-and-for-all, never-to-be-repeated (thankfully, some may say) vinyl-only MeFiMu magimix. Hope y'all like it. [more inside]
No, seriously. Just for fun, I decided to do this cover song to test out some drum stuff. Thought I'd share this while I work on some new songs...
This is incomplete and very current WIP from my glacial synth-based alter ego and is perhaps something of a companion piece to White Feather. I'd really appreciate opinions on (a) the pretty drastic transitions in the piece from the rhythmic to the quasi-orchestral and back again, (b) whether the lyric theme has any kind of cheddar whiff, and (c) whether it needs more "oomph" under the orchestral bits (actually difficult to pull off without destroying the mood - I've tried....). Any other comments welcome of course - but this is unfinished and well rough so....geeza break. [more inside]
An instrumental song by my band Clark 8 remixed using Jason Forrest's star6 iPhone app. Rock meets breakcore and everybody gets glitched up. [more inside]
Another cut from the Quick and Dirty submitted for some feedback, particularly in terms of the mix.
An abstract and impressionistic take on the wonderful world of work. Or something like that. Whatever. Listening to it afresh from the distance of several years, I've no idea what the fuck I'm banging on about here. I was probably stoned out of my box at the time. Disgarceful behaviour for a doctor - tsk tsk. Another extract from the extensive but wholly disreputable Dundee Archive. NB: this product contains faint traces of jazz-lite.....
A new song called 'Madeleine' from my new band, features piano, strings and bouncy guitars! Wheeee. [more inside]
From the band that brought you "Bridges over the Thames" and "The world's most blown mind", The Old Whores Of San Pedro proudly present. Locate the pin, a song inspired by a fire extinguisher. [more inside]
The first song from my new collection of supernaturally themed novelty garage rock by my multiply pierced and tattooed sailor puppet, Sailor Martin; the collection of songs will also, eventually, be called Don't Go in the Garage. [more inside]
I can usually get a presentable mix without too much hassle, but this one beats the hell out of me. Sounds good in headphones, complete shit on monitors and even worse in the car. Advice? [more inside]
VU & Nico challenge - I'm Waiting for the
Man Caterpillar [more inside]
A few of you wanted to know when my band Voodoo Economics's next album came out. Welp, it's out. It's called 'Nighttime Sabbaticals'. Here's a track from it. [more inside]
Another track from The Old Whores Of San Pedro. [more inside]
This is my first contribution to MeFiMu, so go easy on me! [more inside]
Pretty much what it says on the tin. A prelim mix of a song about the high highs and low lows of huffing jenkem. [more inside]
Named after a minor magic spell. [more inside]
For losers everywhere... [more inside]
Final upload from my pile of rejects - ok, the other two weren't exactly the dog's bollocks (which is why they were jettisoned - duh), but this one..........hell, even I like this... [more inside]
A goofy, gleeful, garage-y little summer-in-the-city song. [more inside]
From the back catalog of The Olivers. Somehow this one never made it over here. As always, interested in y'all's thoughts.
#2 in a short series of 3 "rediscovered" tracks from my pile of untitled cds - which were heading for the bin until I decided I'd better check them out first. Again, about 5 or 6 years old (at a guess) this one's pretty off-centre..... [more inside]
Recorded 5 years ago. Frankly, a bit of a mess. Lyric is vaguely about relationship breakdown, but is "stream of consciousness" i.e. bollocks. But......something there? Worth re-recording/working on? I dunno. You might tell me.
This is a chill instrumental easy listening rock piece. Drums, bass, guitar, and saxophones accompanied by a storm. [more inside]
I basically put the words to Hallelujah to an acoustic chill rock guitar thing. and this happened. [more inside]
Sometimes it takes a little convincing to get your friend to visit. [more inside]
A small libation from The Gin Palace* [more inside]
Here's to Lon Chaney. Because Bela Lugosi already has a song, and I thought it was high time for a tribute to the man who would've been Dracula, if not for lung cancer. [more inside]
The final mix of this raw track.
This is a re-recording of the first song I ever posted to MeFi Music, a catchy little tune written by our bass player Steve. [more inside]
