say goodnight

The city outside your bedroom window doesn't care if you're lonely. I guess this song is about the feeling of hopelessness. Slightly more uptempo than my previously posted songs, this one features slide guitar, non-slide guitars, drums, piano, strings, and guest appearances by Riadsala (bass) and kerry and casio (background vocal).

Bleeding Hands

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?

Beaver

My second band, Brevator, improvised this for a sound check while recording. We liked it so much we ended up keeping it.

Next Train

The first track I recorded for my college course (so technically the first track I recorded properly...sort of). The brief was to record a track using layered vocals - 24 vocal tracks in all. I dug out this old song (think I was about 16 or 17 when I wrote it) to do the job.

Welcome to the Jungle (acoustic)

This is an acoustic cover of the very excellent They Might Be Giants song Welcome to the Jungle. As a gag, the beginning instrumental bit copies the Guns N' Roses song Welcome to the Jungle. Though my old "band" did this, just about every instrument on this track (including the backup vocals) was done by one bandmember.

Entre chien et loup

Metal/rock with some little proggish ambitions. Features wheedly-wheedlies at the very end, and some truly incompetent drum programming.

Swimming Lessons

My band, Struction, recorded this in the Spring.

Origin of the Speakers

This is a stereo fold-down mix of a track written for a 5.1 surround sound setup. The idea was to show the evolution of blues/rock music in parallel with the evolution of musical space going from mono to stereo to surround. Still works fairly well in stereo though!

Solitude

A tune my band The Visitors recorded around 1995 or so. I played an acoustic bass to get a really nice, fat bottom end on it. Matt and Andrew's solos are pretty tasty. After all this time, I still dig this one!

the long lost light

A slow and sad song I wrote and recorded after a breakup/separation a few years ago. Features a falsetto chorus and acoustic guitar, including an e-bow undercurrent.

Let's Go Get Stoned

A little taste of a cover of Let's Go Get Stoned, although this version sounds a lot more like a live recording of Adrian Duke I have. It takes much longer to record a song when you're on your own. I start these kinds of projects now and then, using GarageBand and an M-Audio MIDI keyboard to record songs without using any of the built-in loops, and rarely finish them because it takes too long. (I did loop a simple drum track when I first started working on this, but after I got the bass and keys down, I went back and rerecorded the drum track live to the rest of the instruments.) The guitar wankery was the most recent addition... not a real guitar, but one of the MIDI instruments in GarageBand. Just goofing around, really. Nothing else to do today...

Eponymous 4 - Revulsion

I know enough guitar to get me in trouble, but not enough to do me any good. That doesn't stop my from writing on the instrument, then letting Reason cobble my ideas together. This is me trying to sound like Number Girl. All synthesizer, but I try to make it sound live.

4 Sale

This song was rendered from a camcorder video recorded in March 1987 at the 8 1/2 club in a town called Pinetamare, Italy, otherwise known as Villagio Coppola, Italy. The name of the band was Tous, and I was the bass player. I spent all of my free time after school and on weekends during my senior year at Naples American High School rehearsing and performing with the band. The guitar and keyboard players Pierpaulo and Gianni are italian, and the drummer and singer Marco and Mike are italian-american. This is one of several songs we wrote and performed.

Gargoylehead (Acoustic)

Gargoylehead is a silly song about a statue in a family's house that comes to life when the family leaves for the night. It trashes the house and eventually falls asleep while watching a movie on cable. The family comes home to a great surprise. The song was performed by the band I was in in high school (we are long-defunct now) and this recording was done several years ago for fun. I hope you like it.

Mark Foo's Last Ride

Mark Foo rewrote the rules of big-wave surfing and turned it into a high-stakes, high-profile thrill show. So when the biggest, baddest new surf break -- Mavericks -- started to churn out 40-foot waves in December 1994, it was inevitable that he'd be there. This tune celebrates his last ride. Previous tunes here and here.

And Thus Was Founded the First RoboChurch

Have the robots become sentient? What will all the robots think when they watch us humans go through our daily lives? Will they know I was very drunk, alone in my band's creepy practice space? Will they still like me?

Africa!

This song was recorded in October 1986 at club Chez Mimo in a town called Pinetamare, Italy, otherwise known as Villagio Coppola. The name of the band was Tous, and I was the bass player. I spent all of my free time after school and on weekends during my senior year at Naples American High School rehearsing and performing with the band. The guitar and keyboard players Pierpaulo and Gianni are italian, and the drummer and singer Marco and Mike are italian-american. This is one of several songs we wrote and performed. The Tarzan part on this song was kind of weird to me at first, but the crowd seemed to enjoy it, so we kept it.

Balkan Red Alert, Part I

Balkan-tinged surf-rock ode to Gavril Princip from Cesare Gorgeous & The Strange Attractors. That's me (Cesare) on, um, everything. Previously in the same ilk: A Theory of Everything. More to come.

The Writing's on the Wall

"In the fires of Mount Doom, was forged our mighty song." My band's ode to itself. Check out the fake-out ending, and that's a real cello in the coda.

Story Yet Untold

Straightforward riff rock with maybe a hint of a memory of Jethro Tull. If you can sing this better - and believe me, you can - drop me a note.

Sold Sign

Once upon a time, there was a band named Thred. It imploded because our manager was hot and three of the guys in the band couldn't keep their hands off her. We recorded this one for a benefit CD that never materialized, in a studio where I eventually found myself working, learning how to use ProTools. I mixed most of this myself, just for the hell of it. (The song takes aim at local band Carbon Leaf, whom we didn't think were deserving of the praise they were getting. I just can't see a penny whistle on the MTV except for R.E.M., and you ain't them...)

Champagne Jam (Part 2) - Audiosports

This track is part 2 of a 23 minute mega mash up with a steady beat and some obscure samples. When I played this set live, I was happy to see people breakin' to it. Cool! http://www.albertoforero.com

Open Letter to God

We used all of our money to rent some studio time back in 1999 and didn't have any left over to do anything with the recordings. We also seemed to end up writing power-ballads...

take this pain

It's a slow starter, and once it gets going it's incredibly repetetive. But, uh, I like it that way. Features moi on vocals (through a simulated guitar amp) and all instruments.

cassiopeia

kind of an untraditional sea shanty about the end of the world and being thirsty. from my band pocket novel mystery's first full length, 8 days in the life of grace, which will finally be released (now that most of the original lineup has dissolved) on august 29th through our new record label, cloud 13 records.

Fleets

Up until last fall I played guitar in a band here in the D.C. area called Cartel. (Later we changed our name to Cedars because of trademark issues.) This song was from our demo, which was recorded by Jason Caddell of the late, great Dismemberment Plan. I'm no longer in the band and they trudge on without me. But it was fun while it lasted -- we opened for some pretty cool bands such as Stellstarr*, Giant Drag, Sea Ray and Trash Can Sinatras. In case you're wondering, that's not a keyboard in the song, just my guitar and a pretty odd delay.

helmet

As you stood there with your helmet off, I remembered getting hit with frozen tennis balls (because they always forced me to play goal.) kind of a song about being scared...of a violent helmetted guy. really a demo, but when i tried to do it 'for real' it sucked. so i like this one despite the faults.

The first protest song I've ever felt compelled to write for my band Pocket Novel Mystery. This is a rough draft, but we'll probably use this one on our next full-length, in one form or another.

Odd time signature for the verse, standard 4/4 chorus. We're not really sure why it turned out that way, but we liked it. Another one by Dessert Parade recorded for that first release.

A Theory of Everything

Twangsome surf-rock from The Strange Attractors, recorded when I should have been writing screenplays. That's me kicking the reverb tank at the beginning.
