2019: Back for my 12th FAWM. I'll see how much I've got left in the tank. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to listen.

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.

    Thank you so very much for all of your listens and kind comments, you really lifted my spirits and I appreciate you subjecting yourself to so much of my music all at once LOL!!!

    Cheers, Rick. Your point about detail is valid; it's an artistic choice. I checked and to my surprise ADT was established in 1874! Of course, my family's security system in the '60s was a little door chain and my dad's pistol. We never needed them, but it was part of the zeitgeist.

    You're welcome and thank you for your comment too.
    I'm a bit burned out, so I'll be back to commenting & listening to more music after the weekend.

    Hey Rick. How you doing? That will be cool for you to compile some classic "Rick" songs. Of course, you sound like a rock star on that song, and I sound like I never sang before in my life. 😝
