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]
Rough mix of a Derailleur song about Stan Lee. How many guitars are in this song? Lots. Lots of guitars. [more inside]
Aaaaand it's another nugget from Derailleur's alternate-Bond-theme project. We found that flipping from "and" to "or" gives you a completely different take on life. [more inside]
Another very rough mix from Derailleur's Bond Theme Songs project. I can't remember what the official theme song to Octopussy even was, but I'm sure it didn't rock as hard as ours. [more inside]
There are 22 James Bond movies (counting the one in production), but there should be more. And these additional nonexistent ones need theme songs. We in Derailleur have taken it upon ourselves to provide the theme songs, hoping the movies will catch up with us. [more inside]
A Derailleur song with driving guitars, keyboard goofery, and lyrics from the point of view of a peripheral character in Infinite Jest. [more inside]
A really poppy Derailleur song, written and sung by our bass player. [more inside]
An acoustic demo I did a while ago for a Derailleur song called Superhero. [more inside]
A mess-around-at-practice riff that grew into a song. This one knocks down some walls live. [more inside]
My current band, Derailleur, covering the Smiths. This was recorded live at a show a couple of years ago, right after we discovered the joys of doing weird things to keyboards. I'd like to point out that I'm the one torturing the keyboard this time.
Originally just a melody that I'd use when singing nonsense songs to my cats, TiT turned into one of the mellower, more atmospheric Derailleur songs. It's very loosely about the Tom Robbins book Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates, but really the overall tone is more important than any words.
Yeah, it's pretty much about what you think it is.
