Ching Dong Boss
This is the Smoke Benders, coming at ya live from beautiful downtown Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. Featuring the amazing Numa Naoya on his amazing little drum kit and yours truly on original WaveDrum. And random hollerin'. Lyrics and embedded video here.
Hate That Train That Carried My Girl From Town
Here's the SMOKE BENDERS, live in Toyama, Japan, from March 2012. The sound is a little gymnasium-y, due to the fact that the gig was in a gymnasium. I'm on electric talking drum for this one. Video here.
Here's the Smoke Benders, folks. We took Hank Williams' lamentation of an unlucky prisoner from its original waltz time and put a NOLA second line feel under it. Cause, hey, who doesn't like a NOLA second line feel, right? Video at YouTube and Vimeo.
Impromptu version of the holiday classic. This closed out the night for the Smoke Benders' last gig of 2011. Video here.
Two Eyes Seen
Return of the Smoke Benders. Video here.
Car Alarms and Crackheads
The Smoke Benders return once again, to kick out the proverbial jams. Flubbed the lyrics a little bit, but hey, it's only rock and roll. Video here.
I Used To Hate You But Now I Love You
This month's Challenge got me to thinking: with 'hate' being such a profound and powerful emotion, isn't it odd that there are really so few songs that really employ it as an idea or as inspiration? I mean, 'love'? Heck, you can't spit without hitting a love song, but hate, that's a different story. So anyway, this is a song of hate and love. Love and hate. Simple as that. Video here.
Trying To Boogie
From deepest Ikebukuro, in the heart of downtown Tokyo, it's the Smoke Benders, trying our damndest to boogie, y'all. Video here.
Once again, friends, it's the Smoke Benders: Daysuke on tuba, Naoya on drums, and me on pocket drill, diddley bow, light-triggered synth and vox. Live in Toyama, Japan. Video here.
_Come On Round Here Baby
MeFiMu debut of the Electric Drum! From the Smoke Benders' recent Hokuriku tour, this is a tune I've posted before in a solo version. Video here.
Whole Bag of Wrong
Here's another one from the Smoke Benders' recent Hokuriku tour. Clocking in at 8 minutes, it's a wee bit longer than previously posted tunes here. It goes through summa them changes and all, and includes some psychedelic diddley bow solos. Video here.
Riding Your Train
I posted a solo version of this song here before, but this time around my new band the Smoke Benders shakes 'em on down. From our second gig, at the tiny Bar Isshee, Shibuya, Tokyo, January, 20, 2011. Video here.
Ain't I Lucky
Here's another tune from the Smoke Bender's [previously] first gig. Video here.
