2018...wait, what? My 11th FAWM and I don't know what I have left in the tank. I'll try and use the power of this place to lift me out of the doldrums and finish some old things and hopefully some new things too. Must. Bring. ROCK.
EVERYDAY GOING BACKWARDS (2017) is a 5-song EP of electric protest songs written during FAWM '17 available on my Bandcamp page.
CAUGHT BY THE SOUND (2016) is a 12-song LP, mostly consisting of songs from FAWMs '15 & '16, including such smash hits as 'Rejectee', 'Schitt's Weak Dog', and of course 'The Winter of Our Discotheque'...also on Bandcamp.
Stuff I use: Fender electric & Guild acoustic guitars, mandolin, bass, piano, organ, synth noises, drum programming, harmonica, tambourine and assorted percussion.
Thanks for checking out my song. Heck yeah, do the short punk song. I've been specializing in short songs this FAWM. It's a refreshing to write like that.
Hi. FYI, there's no music when I click on "The Mighty Have Fallen..."
Hey Rick! Thanks for your comment! I am late for the party, but glad you have been doing some writing! Keep up the great work!
Haha yeah, Gordon Lightfoot should lighten up
YAY RICK! Always happy to see you here again. You know I'm a loyal fan 😀
Hi Rick, thanks for your message, it means a lot. Have a great Fawm!
Hi Rick! Good to see you’re here! Happy FAWMing!
Back'atcha man! Have fun this year!
wishin you a great FAWM!
Hey Rick! Thanks a lot for the kind welcome! I wish you a wonderful FAWM! 😀
See, I sound more like just the sidekick henchman, whereas Amorphis is a proper evil super-villain name 😉
I can just imagine Sean Connery saying “Do you exshpect me to talk Amorphish?”
“No Mr Bond, I expect you to die”
Hey Rick Time to make more songs. Yay!
I will, as usual, be keeping an ear out for what you're up to this year. Hope you're in!
