As you stood there with your helmet off, I remembered getting hit with frozen tennis balls (because they always forced me to play goal.) kind of a song about being scared...of a violent helmetted guy. really a demo, but when i tried to do it 'for real' it sucked. so i like this one despite the faults.
Recorded by a band I was in way back in '97 at the ripe age of 19.
The first protest song I've ever felt compelled to write for my band Pocket Novel Mystery. This is a rough draft, but we'll probably use this one on our next full-length, in one form or another.
Odd time signature for the verse, standard 4/4 chorus. We're not really sure why it turned out that way, but we liked it. Another one by Dessert Parade recorded for that first release.
A recent recording of a slow and maybe a little creepy song I wrote a couple of years ago. I'm responsible for all vocals and instruments minus the bass, which was recorded by my Scottish buddy Riadsala.
Twangsome surf-rock from The Strange Attractors, recorded when I should have been writing screenplays. That's me kicking the reverb tank at the beginning.
A cover of ABBA's S.O.S by me (Brad Sucks) and my pal TheHipCola for an ABBA Fight we were involved in.
cloeburner and I used to be in an improv noise rock band called cloeburner. When I listen to this song, I think of a majestic bald eagle, sinking slowly into a pool of lava and contemplating its own mortality. I hope you will, too.
This snappy little track is from my band DIVISION OF PLANES.
Guitar-heavy, folk-inflected rock instrumental.
This is one of the tracks I submitted to the MeFi music compiiation project, but not the one that will be included on the CD. Dessert Parade is primarily a studio band now, since the four of us have scattered around the country and both the bass player and guitar player are on their way to being Famous Rock Stars. We recorded this one in 2002 for our first release.
it's a song about dirt and also bags
