Just a short instrumental (my favorite kind) comprised of a train beat, steel guitar riffs and some other riffs thrown in for good measure. [more inside]

This was a song I wrote about a fictional women that I didnt really meet. In fact I havent ever stopped in New Orleans I may have drove through along time ago. This song is one of three done at a studio. The drummer was way to uptight for my music. He kept saying he could play john bonham solo's and Im thinking this isnt really the place for Mr Bonham. I need Ringo here. Anyway they over recorded drums with alittle crackle. I had a friend do the bass and lead style playing and he held it togther enough to make it listenable. Thats when I went home studio after seeing the money I could throw away. Anyway this song was before the hurricane period as well by a year Id say. I just really wrote it cause I wanted something fresh for the studio and upbeat. Anyway Listen
Part of my Old Songs project of making lo-fi recordings of songs I wrote many years, and, sometimes, decades ago. I have come to the inexorable conclusion that in the years between 1996 and 2000, I was either quite depressed, or unexpectedly skilled at feigning it in song [more inside]
Another ditty from marshmallow spike. Lyrics inspired by seeing the greying faces of commuting salarymen on the train in Tokyo. And not wanting to become like that.
This is aparently a cover of an Ozark Mountain Daredevils song. I am utterly unfamiliar with that band or their version of the song. In college, a firend sang the song to me once, and years later I recorded this from what I could remember. I was trying to do a gospel thing, but the sort of gospel you would hear in that church portrayed in the last scenes of X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes.
A sketch of a sunny, bouncy ambient-ish track I Fruitylooped a month or so ago. I may actually completely rewrite it, or something similar, now I have access to a Jupiter 8, and can take my Boards Of Canada / Kraftwerk thieveries to more convincing levels....
