Something completely different – Us and Them (Mechanical Mix)

Something completely different – Us and Them (Mechanical Mix)

I was almost finished with the straight version of Us and Them, and I had a dream about a more mechanical / industrial version, with hammers for the snare, and more distortion and guitars. So I finished that other version, copied it and started working on this one. There are a lot of changes here, […]

New cover – Us and Them

See Emily Play was fun, however, I wanted to do something more mainstream Pink Floyd. So I picked Us and Them from their Dark Side of the Moon album. This is a pretty straight interpretation, following as much of the original as I could.

This month is a cover of Pink Floyd’s See Emily Play

This month is a Pink Floyd challenge and I picked See Emily Play (cemented when I found a cover by Bowie). This is a hard rock/punk version, not psychedelic. I hope you enjoy it!

And another cover, this time Hey Jude

And another cover, this time Hey Jude

This cover is a collaboration of folks from the monthly challenge. I contributed organ and Mellotron to this one. I hope you like it (I also helped name the ‘band’)!

New cover song – All the Young Dudes

This month the challenge is to cover a Bowie song, so I immediately grabbed All the Young Dudes. This is a reggae style cover (I started goth and decided I didn’t like that – when I added finger snaps for the hand claps in the chorus it suddenly screamed reggae). I sing on this one […]

New cover song – Blue Jay Way

So this month it’s the Beatles. I wanted to cover Ticket To Ride, however, for some reason I did a needle-drop of songs on Magical Mystery Tour and re-discovered this one. I dropped the key by a whole step with the plan to put Ticket to Ride after Blue Jay Way, and then gave up […]

And another new cover – the James Bond Theme

So here’s another cover – this month the group decided to cover a James Bond song, so I picked the original theme. I’m old and I remember listening to this almost from the earliest Bond movies. Here’s a Wikipedia article on the theme, I think it’s quite good and comprehensive. Barry redid the theme for […]

New music – cover of Breakfast in America

So here’s a cover of Breakfast in America – I recorded, mixed and mastered this in one day. This is punk, completely alien to the original except its the same chords and words. I think its fun, I hope you like it.

My 5th album, Something’s Missing, is available everywhere!

My 5th full release, Something’s Missing, is now available on most streaming and purchase services. This has taken a little over a year mostly thanks to waiting for my yearly bonus to pay for the release. The music ranges pretty widely from classical to progressive rock to somewhat metal and even some sound collage work. […]
