Morning Song13/10/2017 Duración: 04min
This is a tune that came to me many years ago via the crucible of bad behavior. Much like a promise of hope when all seemed hopeless.
Real Time13/08/2017 Duración: 07min
Originally posted Sunday, January 21, 2007This is semi autobiographical, in as much as an instrumental can be considered self referential. Regardless of my intention, this tune seems to tell a story.
Pachuco!27/06/2014 Duración: 05min
Original Post: Wednesday, February 7, 2007Remixed 2014This song is absolutely relentless. What starts out as a nice little ska song lasts a few bars, turns rather latin, and cops an attitude. This one definitely took on a life of it’s own. To learn more about the culture and inspiration, click the Wikipedia link below.Pachuco
The More Things Change (The More They Stay The Same)09/12/2013 Duración: 06min
Original post: Saturday, March 31, 2007 This is a sweet one. I figured I’d post it rather than run the risk of messing it up by tweaking it too much. I asked Penny what the name was and here it is. She’s the one who’s good with words. As is my usual method, this tune was produced in Apple’s garageband using many loops, software instruments and live guitars. Don’t forget the mixing. Enjoy!

A challenge from James. Originally aired some time ago!
Lemon Curry22/07/2012 Duración: 03min
Originally posted Saturday, November 17, 2007This one has been gathering dust for some time. It actually predates “the More Things Change”, but I was waiting for lyrics that have not, as of yet, materialized. The title is a gift from my buddy O’syryous who gifted me some sounds in a package called “steaming piles of lemon curry”. The usual methods were employed in the making of these sound vibrations. Enjoy!
Yuki!01/07/2012 Duración: 02min
Original Post: Sunday, January 21, 2007Please consider for a moment the feeling a song gives you. Regardless of the style, there’s always a feeling. That’s what this one’s got. What else I don’t know. For one, who really is Yuki anyway? This one I made with Apple’s garage band. Some loops, some live instruments, and a mix or six.
Roundtree's Revenge01/07/2012 Duración: 02min
This tune was a sweaty brainchild born of Blacksploitation movies like “Shaft” and my love for ’70’s era thrillers.Originally posted Sunday, January 21, 2007Okay, picture this. If the Mission Impossible movies had featured Richard Roundtree’s character, Shaft, instead of that hack, Tom Cruise, and had taken place in Istanbul, the sound track might have sounded something like this.
