A song about struggling with mental health, written and recorded in my bedroom this weekend. Some explicit lyrics.
Just wrote this today, very much informed by our current situation. Lyrics in the bridge borrowed/stolen wholesale from Joy Division's "Transmission." Recorded on my bathroom floor into my Tascam DR100's built-in mics. Who will he answer to?
Restless and pissed off over the covid-19 situation, and powerless to do much about it, I set up a mic (and a camera) on my porch after I put my kid to bed and recorded this song I wrote about civil disobedience. You got the stones for crime. It's about time.

This is a recording from Ground Zero in Troy, NY. I played a solo show for about 50ish people and a stuffed pony.
