Lost in the Desert

A lengthy (slightly self indulgent) electric guitar piece, I've performed it live with drums and bass but this is recorded just with guitars. Its quite rocky, especially half way through the piece. Bit of a change of pace from my previous postings, hope everyone likes what they hear. If anyone wants to record some drums for it I'd be happy to hear it!

Randomly Riding the Bearded Python

come here (aberdeen)

This started as a weird tune with pseudo-Indian wailing/cat meowing vocals, guitar feedback, and a one-note sitar solo. It still has those elements, but the track ended up being an almost radio-friendly, catchy (?) pop-rock thing. [more inside]

In Paris, It's Dawn By Now

A song that, like almost EVERY song I write, is about running away to an exotic locale and, once there, dancing.

I Don't Want to be Here

Recorded back in '01 for the Chalkhills.org King For a Day XTC tribute compilation CD. Written by Andy Partridge, but never recorded by XTC. This was a one-off project, but eventually led to the formation of my XTC tribute band, and we played it live once or twice. [more inside]

A while ago our previous Prime Minister had a great deal of trouble saying "Sorry", so I thought I'd do it for him, along with a couple of other things. The song's a bit dated now, but it rocks hard.

(Note: NSFW-ish if f*** and a****** are a problem where you work.) For the bulk of the years of growing up that I actually remember, what I would consider the “formative” years, I lived in Brookline, Massachusetts. (Not to be confused with the super irritating Brookline, New Hampshire that would show up in school closing announcements only to leave me extra disappointed.) During and after college I didn’t think much of my high school years at Brookline High School. And in fact, I ended up losing touch with every friend I made there. But thanks to the internets I have reconnected with many of them, some very recently. It’s been super positive, and it’s stirred up all these great memories of my time in Brookline. That’s what this song is about. These three incidents in particular: [more inside]

I was flipping through an old binder of songs I wrote in high school and came across this instrumental. I saw some potential there and decided to record it. Twenty years ago, it was supposed to be a fusion thing, along the lines of Hiroshima. I opted for something a bit harder instead.

Take the Picture

I tend to take a lot of pictures. I found out early on in my photo-taking tenure that the more pictures I took, the more likely that some of them would come out nicely. Of course, I’m always the one behind the camera. As a parent, I also have wondered just how much of the time I spend with my kids they will remember (if any). My father recently asked me if I remembered how we used to watch Star Trek together. I honestly couldn’t remember. He was crushed. It occurred to me that many years down the road when my kids look at our family pictures they won’t see me in any of them because I was the one behind the camera. Something tells me that this detail will be lost on them as they repeat the cycle and tell me they don’t remember me being there. ;) [more inside]
