Sometimes the Web is like the Wild West. [more inside]
A VDU is, of course, a video display unit. A song about one of the things the Web has made: Millions of people who sit all day long staring at a screen. [more inside]
Screw the new stuff. I'm loading up my iPod with punk rock. [more inside]
Although not strictly part of this month's challenge, I would like to point out that this song, which deals with how our social media lives on after we die, is heavily inspired by "Waiting for My Man." [more inside]
A song about oversharing. [more inside]
Yet another from my series of glam and punk inspired songs about the series of tubes we call the Interweb. [more inside]
Another in my series of punk and glam inspired songs about Web culture, this one is sort of an answer song to both "The Kids Are Alright" and "Blitzkrieg Bop." [more inside]
Another from my series of lo-fi punk and glam inspired songs about the Interweb, this time dealing with Web hoaxes and tragedies. [more inside]
A goofy, gleeful, garage-y little summer-in-the-city song. [more inside]
Another of my punk and glam rock-inspired songs about the Interwebs. [more inside]
The final mix of this raw track.
This is a re-recording of the first song I ever posted to MeFi Music, a catchy little tune written by our bass player Steve. [more inside]
This is one of the first songs I wrote about 4 years ago. An earlier recording is posted here.
Although the song says the distinction is irrelevant, this is definitely the BROKEN hallelujah. [more inside]
And the rock and roll continues...
Did someone request a kick in the ass?
Looking back, there's a lot of stuff I've done over the last few years that never got posted here. So I am going to remedy that, starting with our track from the MeFi Music comp.
I made some power-pop. It's crunchy. [more inside]
Me and my almost-13-year-old son Mikey at it again (we recently did a cover of "Son of a Gun"). Our two-man band, Megakelvin, put together another pop-punk number, the White Stripes' "Fell in Love With a Girl," a song Mikey fell in love with through the video (which, as you remember, was done in Lego). Since then, he's consistently had this one among his favorites. Here's our take. I think he brings the RAWK.
Song I recorded for my solo/obnoxiousness project Birdlaw. I wanted to make a song that sounded like Chrome . [more inside]
One of my boys destroyed his left arm while skateboarding this past weekend. This ones for you SKATER X! (And yea, we have more jello, don't worry about it.)
My first ever RPM challenge song, a sludgy, fuzzy guitar riff-driven groove in the grand tradition of Oneida, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Sabbath. [more inside]
Well, we tried.
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]
A revision of my earlier version of this cover, since I had a night to burn at school. Bigger, a bit less background noise, a little more banjo.
its dirty, dirty, dirty and noisy, noisy, noisy. [more inside]
Another track from the 2002 Christmas album. Now with 100% less blasphemy. [more inside]
you have werewolf money in your werewolf pants [more inside]
New rough demo for a live "rock" project [more inside]
you pretend to be me, I pretend to be you [more inside]
A classic punk rock song. [more inside]
A sad/angry song about the place where all the things we'd rather forget end up. Inspired by MeFi politics filter, where I was first introduced to the concept of "the memory hole," which in turn gave rise to this song. (This is a redux post after I accidentally posted an old mix before.) [more inside]
We totally spelled this wrong on our EP. Hope y'all like it.
A dialogue between an unhinged robot and a dismissive human. [more inside]
Rockin version. [more inside]
Punk "Edelweiss" with the original Nazi lyrics. Someone else posted their version of this recently... [more inside]
"The music starts, the singer screams, there's feedback all to hell. I think I've played this gig before..."
Because The Sound of Music was on TV this weekend. [more inside]
A slightly uptempo cover of Tim McGraw's hit, recorded sometime in late 2004. [more inside]
In which I squeak, squawk, and warble through a really, really loud cover of a Dan Bern song. [more inside]
A quick and dirty cover of the Johnny Rivers classic for a lazy Friday afternoon. [more inside]
This is some kind of punk, and my girls, (wife and her best friend) did the vocals. This is fun! Enjoy!
NSFW lyrics. [more inside]
Tape really does sound better. And good mics, preamps, compressors, consoles... [more inside]
Not in my town. Not in any of my five towns. [more inside]
A while back, I posted a song called Yes, Dope. The vocal samples in it were from this here song, by my 80s punk 3 piece, The Whores. This song was included on a local sampler album put out by Glitch Records in '86, and inexplicably went to #1 on a little college station somewhere in upstate New York, and stayed there for 6 weeks. I was #1 in New york!
A Velvet Underground cover from our recent recording session
Sort of mildly generic uplifting pop-punk from my band (http://myspace.com/cutofffrequency). Recorded on our own, mixed on our own (not done yet), still yet to finish the mixing and mastering process.
