The Last Time I Saw Moscow

A very lo-fi one-take recording by The Grandma Sylvias. Acoustic guitar and vocals only; all apparent distortion is coming from knobs turned very high. [more inside]

So, Why Not?

More 4-track clearance. This time, it's a happy, bouncy ditty from 1993: two guitars, some whistling and happily mumbled lyrics. Recorded probably with Fleetwood Mac's Tusk on the brain, with all knobs turned up to eleven. [more inside]

I fell in Love with the Bearded Girl

More from my 4-track dump onto the PC. Lyrics written very loosely and improvised on the spot; it is about a 6-year old falling in love with the bearded lady midget at the fair, and running away. The song has an anxious, circus-gone-wrong aura to it. It was recorded on 1/26/94 in my bedroom, in the middle of the night so that my roommates wouldn't hear it.

Wishing Well

It's a song about playing make believe games, and pretending that everything's going to be alright, when really it's all gone to shit. It's also somewhat of a sea shanty.

More Songs About Oven Mitts

It's Been So Cold Since We Left Earth

Space-y, shoe gaze-y little number I put together some time back. Left pretty much everything up to chance and was very pleasantly surprised with all the different sounds that came out. [more inside]

Rehearsals : three tunes that we (a big band) were to play on stage in a small jazz festival in Millau, Aveyron, southern France.

Great Big Kiss Off

An early song by The Action Items, which was usually just me, but on this song also includes dainty dave on the drums. Posted in response to the song that is hopefully still immediately preceding this one.

to dream

late night meeting with a street musician, near saint anne, in Montpellier. Lots of things to say, many songs in his bag, mostly sharing the same chords (!?). Nice feeling.

Here Lies a Lonely Man

Under an archway, cross a cobblestone floor through an old wooden door. There's an apartment, and someone lives there, but does anyone care?

Bells

Taking a stroll somewhere in France. Sonic snapshots : Purchasing food. Driving. Walking in the street. Listening quietly. Playing the guitar.

old french song

hi, what about a trip to southern France, with an occitan traditional sung by a choir ?

real book

Hi, This is not what you can call a song : rather a collection of recordings pasted together. As in the Real Book, some standards are included. But this track also includes sounds taken from the real world, like a street scene, or rehearsals. It is a deliberate effort to try to match apparently unrelated recordings, from different sources. The Real Book, paradoxically, features charts for some idealistic land. Here, I wanted to use sounds both from the inside (music) and from the outside (raw field recordings) to see how ironically they are related and to provide some contrast. What you're about to hear : a saxophone playing Don Quichotte, a late night Dulcinea, two versions of a standard, and guitar comments.

lo fi vamp

hi. This is actually my first attempt at improvising over a vamp. It was recorded with a 500 mhz computer and a webcam. First track recorded first, then played through the speakers so as to allow me to improvise over it, and then the whole recaptured by the webcam again. Hence the muddy sonics. The computer had trouble to play and record at the same time : results in clicks. On the whole.. I like it. Listen to my next post to compare with a cleaner version. Sometimes the rawer the better.

Las garras del destino

I'm always unsure about posting the songs in languages other than English here, so I'll post this one with the question, would you listen to the song even if you don't understand the lyrics?

The Real Moon Song

My pal Jeff 'Hotlicks' Gulley and I recorded this tune one afternoon. 'Hotlicks' called it a day and left but the song just didn't sound finished so I hit record and started singing. This is what we were left with.

It's Like Your Heart's the Color Yellow

This is a song from the concept band Heroes that Hurt. My roommate writes the lyrics, in which he explores the futility of super-love. Then we all get together and set them to music. This one is about the Green Lantern.

One Thing's For Certain

Another from Esther. The vocals could use quite a bit more post-production work, but overall, I'm happy about how this one turned out.
