My journey of writing pop punk songs from thirty years ago continues apace. This one started as a TikTok and then I banged out this demo in my living room today. I'm trying to get better at writing choruses and actually using my voice.
First song written and recorded since I moved to Napa. Spooky grungy punk that maybe doesn't reflect my sunny new locale. Written about my drummer's frustration with dating, online and otherwise. Lyrics in fold. [more inside]
I made a Rock and Roll. I like Rock and Roll. [more inside]
A driving four-on-the-floor guitar song recorded by my band Boeufcake. [more inside]
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]
A silly pop song that I wrote for my band Boeufcake. We've been playing together for years, but we have few recordings worthy of sharing due to the tediousness of multitracking and the shit kicking good time we'd rather have drinking beer and playing loud. Be aware, there's a couple naughty words in this song. [more inside]
bouncy, hyperbolic night-out song, wherein I muse on the merits of Jack Daniels as it pertains to dental hygiene. (not really) [more inside]
Haunted punk from my band Big Ghost. This is my second attempt at recording drums (thanks for all the advice, Mefites!) and my first post that all the band worked on together. so pointers are very welcome. [more inside]
A goofy, gleeful, garage-y little summer-in-the-city song. [more inside]
Post-traumatic stress syndrome is a bitch. Pre-traumatic stress syndrome? Well, that can just wreak havoc on your marriage. Let's just hope this song is a relic from those bad old '08 days. (It's proggy-punk-grunge, if you're looking fer a genre) [more inside]
New rough demo for a live "rock" project [more inside]
This is some kind of punk, and my girls, (wife and her best friend) did the vocals. This is fun! Enjoy!
This is much more the style I usually work in. Poppy, punky, and fuzzy. Maybe it's just because of the low grade equipment I use, but my songs always turn into big saturated buzz-fests. At least with this one, it was no accident. As usual, recorded by myself with guitars and robots. Hope you enjoy. Lyrics inside.
This is a Red On Strike recording from about 6 years ago, and features a great live intro from Red...
Another rockin' tune from Red On Strike...
This is a song written by Red On Strike's rhythm guitarist, Camron Gasser, inspired by a particularly bad day at work. Can't you see bleeding hands don't lie?
