it's good to see you back here up and runnin' again dripping wet with enthusiasm hope and gin this time things will be different 'cuz we took care of all those so-called friends (but) let me fill you in on what's been goin' on Dirty Larry finally had to pawn his gun Sampson went and got himself a hair transplant Clark & Lewis: they're stuck in a bad jam, whoa-ah-whoa it's good to see you flashin' that classic grin here again eager as a weasel and so impatient to dig in this time we're gonna' win! though no one's begun someone's bound to give in but let me give you just one little word of advice I suggest you listen good 'cuz I ain't saying it twice we had to change some things when you were sent away so you better learn the new rules if you want to stay and play-ay, oh-oh-whoa THIS TIME, I've come back to stay So don't get in my way Thank you for waiting around And for holding the fort down Thanks for keeping my crown Clean and warm for my return To the ground FEELS GOOD being back here up and running again Eager as an eagle to swoop down and dig in This time kids, I think we've won So let's all go home and drink to our fun, wow-whoa-oh-whoa-w
LYRICS: The world is waiting for you to go crazy Stop hesitating, open up your brains and pour out A confetti shower, streaming downward, downward Your thoughts will rain upon the minds of children They’ll rip their hearts out hoping for a chance to dissolve But they never solve crossing over, over Into the zeros Between the burnt ether and ones That you become Floating right through them As you evolve back to the start You fall apart I sense their frenzy flowing Between my bones They weave their frantic story In threads of gold Pressing like flesh conforming Through little holes And we grow-oh-oh-oh Over the undertow A bolt of lightning piercing through the darkness Ignites your vision and chemically reacts with your face But you never taste what you long for, long for Your glowing eyeballs beckon to the people A green directive, swollen up and calling their names But it does not gain crossing over, over Into the zeros Between the burnt ether and ones That you become Floating right through them As you evolve back to the stars You fall apart I sense them reaching for me They’re all alone Riding their wave of glory On silicone Cascading flesh contorting Through cracking chrome And we grow-oh-oh-oh Over the ozone glow I feel them seeping through me As we become A tangled thread of mutant Axon response Veins sprout like hair protruding From crown to crown And we grow-oh-oh-oh Until we overload


This is an ongoing collection of what I call "prototypes." A prototype is something between a demo and a fully finished recording. If I sell enough, I'll put that money towards finishing them and future recordings.

They are ordered from newest to oldest.

I don't know how many prototypes there will be, but once this hits 20 (which I certainly have more than enough in the works to accomplish), my plan is to start a new collection.

As for the music: Moods (so to speak) and instrumentation will vary.

Going forward, I plan to release on Bandcamp before stuff goes live on the usual streaming platforms. Tracks will start to make it here weeks or months ahead of broader digital distribution and before I make a video clip.

PRICE: For $14, you'll get the whole collection of 20 tracks. Currently there are four tracks, with more coming soon.

NEXT UP, I think, will be:

(6) "Listen" (working title). All recorded, I'm in deep into mixing it. George Lawler plays drums.

(7) "Shadowbread": A version of this appears on Pindrops, but the one I'm mixing is better. It's the original 2001 recording, made for my unreleased album Verbum Sap.

(8) "Angry Bebop": This one is an instrumental in a (I guess) prog vein. I've made videos of what I've recorded so far; here's one: www.instagram.com/reel/CilJAAujxjr/

(9) "Eyeball to the Ground" might come next. My video called "Oblate Spheroid" is built on material from this song (which is all written, I just need to record vocals and to finish "Oblate Spheroid"): www.instagram.com/p/CQzBjEIjYGP/

(10) ... (20) Hmmmm... lots to choose from.
