Oh Death

Once again, it's that song that I just can't stay away from. This time it's coming at you from the Hokuriku region: live in Kanazawa, Japan, from my trio, the Smoke Benders. Our tuba player Daysuke Takaoka is channeling the deep didgeridoo spirits on this one. Video here.

Not Anywhere Anymore

i put down the phone / left a bag of cookies on the corner / filled my brain with a soft white light / sent all my 8-track tapes / to my cousin down in mississippi / took my foot off the pedal, and gave up the fight... A brand new song, live in Tokyo, May 1, 2011. Video here.

A Joke I Didn't Understand

This tune is another example of a lyric directly inspired by a Metafilter comment. Shortly after reading the comment, I wrote the lyrics, and posted them in that same thread. Got around to singing it (well, it's half sung, half intoned, actually) the other night. Video here. [more inside]

Your Little One Way Street

Recorded live at Sabaco in Waseda, Tokyo, on December 9, 2010. I'm playing my new Hungarian mouthbow. There's a wee touch of distortion here and there in the recording, but nothing we can't live with, I s'pose. Video here. [more inside]

Bearded Dragon 2

Another improv track riffing off of the previous Bearded Dragon. This was the last time the Slimelords/the Next ever played together. We broke up shortly after some pictures of us were taken together that same night.

Bringabye

I was part of a bill the other night that included some amazing khomus (jews harp) players from Sakha, Siberia. It was an evening of boing and twang that I was honored to be a part of. Here's a piece of mine from that night - I'm playing the mouthbow. Video here.

Oh Death (live, July 2010)

I just can't stay away from this song, it has a power over me. This time it's with my diddley bow (the Marron Glacé Guitar). At the end of the song, Death momentarily overtook me and made me attack the instrument with one of these. Video of this same performance at YouTube.

Bad Romance (ukulele & synth one-man live cover)

Yes, I know, it's Gaga, and it's overplayed, and likely to polarise opinion. But on the other hand, despite all of that, this really is a good song. (And you can tell it's a good song because it survived me butchering it with a uke.) Video version is available here. [more inside]

Until You Kiss Me (live, 2010)

Back in 2007 I posted this same song (a studio version) which eventually made its way onto my 2009 CD release, Roomful of Ghosts. Here's a live version of the tune, recorded June 25, 2010, at Super Deluxe in Tokyo. Video of this same performance here at YouTube, and just for good measure, here's the video for that studio version as well.

I Heard it Through the Grapevine

Another live recording of a Motown tune. This time I'm not doing the lead vocals, but the backing vocals are me (and one of the guitarists), and so is the vocal impro bit in the middle. I also had a hand in the arrangement. [more inside]

Wouldn't That Be Fine

Here's a raw, punked rendition of a tune that up until now I'd been doing in a mellower vein, but I was feeling just a little edgy, I guess, for this gig in Kamakura the other day. Proximity to the famous giant Buddha there didn't get me into a serene state or anything, so the result was this pummeling version performed on one of the roughest, crudest instruments one might imagine, the Marron Glacé Guitar. Video at YouTube.

Lonely Teardrop

From a recent live show with my band, Medicine Bone. The key we did this in wasn't the best for me, so I ended up kinda screaming it. And the recording is dirty and clipping. So, it turned out just about right. Oh, and the best thing is that old buddy Ken Kawashima (hear him with me here, here and here) was in town and graced us with some of his superb blues harpery. Video at YouTube and Vimeo.
