Breezy song about hanging out in LA [more inside]
Quasi-rock song with awkward, loping rythm, questionable tuning, and lyrics to nowhere. Utilizes the f word. [more inside]
I've tried a couple different things with this progression, finally found something I can live with. Rock guitar, drum machine, and all that jazz. [more inside]
I Need More Money
Mid Tempo slightly rockin' thing. Not actually about money. [more inside]
An old "wall of guitars" rock demo. Come for the fuzz, stay for the drum machine. [more inside]

St Patrick's Day 2013
I do a short song every year for St Pat's, but this time I got exasperated and went meta. Contains authentic swears. [more inside]
On New Year's Eve
Very short hard rock NYE ditty. [more inside]
I Look On
Had a riff, needed to use it. [more inside]

Short little thing, decent guitars and frustrating digital drums. [more inside]

Dracula is a Friend of Mine
We started out trying to make a song about the old Nintendo game Rygar, and there's still parts of that in there, but at some point it got mainly concerned with Dracula. [more inside]
What to do with you
Just setup a new recording situation for myself, needed to give it a workout. Dialed in some rock. [more inside]
Sometimes there's a man - I won't say a hero, 'cause what's a hero? - but sometimes there's a man. A man on a beach. A Beach Casanova. NSFW. [more inside]
A friend tried to bring law and order to his vacation destination. [more inside]
Gonna be late for breakfast! [more inside]
All the Same
Another time-warp alt-rock bruiser... [more inside]
Not My Fault
Random rocker from a year ago. The chorus is a little short.
Another song inspired by the Rodeo Ford car dealership. [more inside]
Too Many Notes in Your Sad Song
Somehow I got it in my head that the challenge theme was "too many notes" instead of "lots of notes". So I wrote and recorded this song and felt like an idiot when I came here to upload it. Enjoy. [more inside]
My main anxiety with regard to music is the unintentional ripoff. I'm fairly comfortable with my particular playing & singing skill levels (though the lead guitar on this one makes me blanch), meager may they be, but, especially with simple progressions (like this one), I have a hard time believing it's not overly derivative of... something. I suspect this is incurable.
I thought I'd toss up a recent demo I'm unsure about and see what the feedback is. There are big problems with the drums, chorus vocals, lead guitar, to name a few, but those are easily fixed, if it's worth it. Sounds like Uncle J on the bass.
Bit by a Snake
When Uncle J and I heard the new challenge theme was "snake", we both immediately thought of an old goof song of ours from years ago. We decided it deserved to be rerecorded...
Living Ain't Worth Dying For
We were going for a John Cougar Mellencamp, Americana, country-rock thing. We have no interest in having a message, hence the stupid words. And we think vague singing about "Uncle Sam", "the war", "the factory", etc., is funny.
Songs of Nothing
In the studio we have many white boards, and upon one a friend wrote the nonsense, "Songs of nothing/Words in the night/Fancy delight". I turned it into a song as meaningless as its inspiration. Sorry about the harmonica.
An original, campy, Shatner-esque take on a fictional Moon-based Patrol-squad.
