Here’s the real thing … my first non-DIY video. Directed by Jeff Forrest; writ, played, sung by me; backing vox Cathryn Beeks; comic book Julie-Anne Striano (see footer for pdf). [Lyrics]
A song about trains, love, and choices (but aren’t they all?). This is one of the first songs I laid down after I broke out my drum set after 20 years in storage. Good call. Real drums are fun. [Lyrics]
Key Lime Pie
It was a nonproductive day on the real studio equipment, so I turned on the Zoom stereo recorder and the GoPro and did the dang thing live. [Lyrics]
Technomania Circus 20th Anniv. – When the Kaiju Broke the World
This was a crazy one-off acted-out version of my Kaiju song from August 24, 2019. The Technomania Circus folks are the best and did all the heavy lifting here.
Gwendolyn is an actual a goddess. The background video was some dunes I was shooting in Death Valley, and these oblivious young ladies ruined my shot — so I vowed to use it somewhere. Might as well connect a nice love song about a goddess with real life revenge. [Lyrics]
Sort of my signature song, which is about writing this song about Death Valley when we were at Death Valley. This was two mics live on separate tracks for separation, which worked out okay. [Lyrics]
Tiger in my Heart
A truly goofy song. So happy Jeff Schmitz shot this first-time live version. December 6, 2019 @Spacebar – I fully expected a crash-n-burn trying this, but didn’t … quite. [Lyrics]
Uncle Andy (no pants)
This is (not really) an old ballad about a hapless soul with … er … problems. Studio Ver. (that’s City Heights, San Diego I’m driving through) [Lyrics]
Trail of Blood (sneak peak)
Old-timey sounding faux-western tune about a bandit and his pursuer, with yodeling.
I just mixed this, but intend to do a video… not sure what. Anyway, I also intended to re-record the whole thing, but it is what it is – simple and straightforward, with yodeling. [Lyrics]
