2020: 13th FAWM? Uncertain.

In 2010 I was thrilled to be included on the Fampilation vol. 6 CD. I've recently recorded a reboot of that song ('East of Tompkins Square') and put it on my Soundcloud page...https://soundcloud.com/rick-amorphis/...

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.

    Ahhhh, my Post FAWM friend...there you are!!! This is becoming our usual time to catch up!! Thank you for visiting my songs "Erase Me" and "Insecure", I am happy you found some of my emotional stuff LOL!!

    Yes, @rickamorphis It is me, @roy. Also, so is @teslator. I started separating out some of my tracks according to genre a little bit more than in the past. I don't try to make 14 in each, but it's definitely more output for me. Mainly I'm curious if people mainly into electronic tracks, for example, would have more of a propensity to listen and comment on this account more than one with acoustic or singer-songwriter stuff on it.

    I still get most "drive-by" listens on @roy for whatever reason...

    Doing well, thanks. Still gotta check in and see if one of my favs has a new tune.
