Artist Bio

Influences:   Gravity. Mortality.

I have scored another win. I made myself write some extra songs to fit the album I am working on, so it would have at least 14 tracks.

It was a very difficult February for me, and that's with a history of difficult Februaries. I wasn't sure I was going to keep writing after a death in the family, but it turns out that writing kept me somewhat distracted from the now empty house. Thank FAWM.

My FAWM 2018 Album [tentative order]

the Head First*
On Fire
Sea of Spam (Bots are Taking Over)
Trust Fall
Life's No Fun (Unless You Have a Trust Fund)
the Awful
Sitting in My Hole
Get to You
Stems and Seeds
Put It Away
All Jacked or Whatever
Fin' to Go
the Tail Ends*

[unfinhished tracks, placement tbd]
Sole Sucker

* my pieces from the kaiju exquisite corpse

Bands (current):
40 Rod Lightning (insurgent north country/citybilly)
the Catalytic Perverters (garage punk)

Collaborations: I am up for it, but sometimes I flake out. Just realize that whatever we do, it may have a life outside of FAWM. It won't be an overly exciting or at all lucrative existence, but it I like it enough, I will make sure it lives. If it wins the lottery we will divvy up.

    Just so you know, I'll be checking your stuff out later this week. I'm almost done with my collabs and that will give me plenty o' time to take it all in.

    I'm so sorry about your loss. I hug my dog on my front steps every night when I get home from work and tell her I sure am gonna miss her someday. I'm sorry that day has come for you.

    I just came across your name in the comments and remembered you from 50/90. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I know I'll see you in happier times at the next big songwriting-fest. x

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Pets are just furry family members and the grief can be every bit as deep, if not deeper, than for people sometimes. They just worm their way deep into our hearts, and they're always there for us, no matter what. The saddest thing about letting them into our hearts is that we almost always outlive them. But, we can't let that keep us from loving them. They bring so much to our lives. My deepest condolences!

    I have been there a few times so can empathise. It's time to remember the good days together not this sad time. Maybe even write an Old Shep type song?

    Here's my contribution to the ANTI-SYN game:

    It's all built-in keyboard sounds in Garageband. Let me know if you have any questions/grievances.

  • @johnstaples  Feb 3

    I got overwhelmed and ran out of time today but I will be back to check out your 0203-D skirmish song!!

  • @barrygoldman  Feb 2

    It is something! I could tell your aim. I love that era, Hotter Than Hell is KISS' most rock n' roll album. Truly like a group of 4 guys just firing off each other live.

    How the heck are you, friend? <3

  • @devin  Jan 2018

    If you’re up for it, I’d be down for another joint effort.

    (“Up, Down, Joint”? Am I being subliminal or something?)

    Have a great one sir.

  • @andygetch  Jan 2018

    Hey Tom, let's do this!
