A little tune about some teenage girls I know who could easily kick my ass. I've been working on a session of drum tracks I had my brother do before going into the peace corp for two years, and this is the first song nearing completion. Still getting used to working with real drum tracks. Any pointers and criticism would be great! [more inside]
(Note: NSFW-ish if f*** and a****** are a problem where you work.) For the bulk of the years of growing up that I actually remember, what I would consider the “formative” years, I lived in Brookline, Massachusetts. (Not to be confused with the super irritating Brookline, New Hampshire that would show up in school closing announcements only to leave me extra disappointed.) During and after college I didn’t think much of my high school years at Brookline High School. And in fact, I ended up losing touch with every friend I made there. But thanks to the internets I have reconnected with many of them, some very recently. It’s been super positive, and it’s stirred up all these great memories of my time in Brookline.

In the late '90s, I was the main guy behind an electronic art-pop band called Science Park. After suffering a nervous breakdown in the winter of 2000, I disbanded the group and retreated from the music industry for six arduous years. Now thirty, I've just issued a 15-year retrospective of my life in sound and have re-committed myself to my life's work with a raft of new projects. "Ascension Island" was first issued on a Japanese 7" single on Motorway Records in 2000, and later on my album Disinformation (Obscure-Disk). A tale of love, espionage, and violence always just out of sight, it features my trademark drifting electronics, shortwave radio interceptions, and cool, clean singing. Enjoy.
