"The Werewolf Song is a catchy folk-rock ditty complete
with werewolf howls. Listen with the light on."
Nightmare City Halloween
"Sounds like an acoustic Link Wray".
This album was recorded in the winter of 2009 at Casey's Musical Dustbin (ie. my basement). All tracks were recorded live directly to tape in one-man-band fashion with me singing and accompanying myself on guitar, harmonica and drums simultaneously (or as simultaneously as possible, anyway.)
If you're looking for songs with deep intellectual and spiritual insight, than this CD is not for you. If you're looking for songs that reflect the angst of living in an uncaring and hostile universe, than this CD is not for you. If your looking for songs that rail against the 21st century military-industrial complex, than this CD...well, you get the idea. However, if you think it's fun to listen to songs about werewolves, surfers and beer, than hell, you're in the right place.

1. ROCKIN' THE PTA: Performing on the bottom rung of the entertainment industry has resulted in such ego destroying gigs as opening for a ventriloquist and performing during the intermission of a beauty pagent for five year olds.
I have yet to play for a parent-teacher association but, based on some of my past opportunities, I imagine it's only a matter of time. This song also fulfills my lifelong dream of incorporating the word "cafetorium" into a rock n roll song.
2. THE WEREWOLF SONG: I have long been a fan of such novelty-halloween records as "Monster Mash", "Dinner With Drac PT.1" and Screaming Lord Sutch's "She's Fallen In Love With The Monster Man." Sadly, no one seems to write stupid songs like that anymore. Here is my humble attempt. My only regret is that it will never be released on a red vinyl 45.
3. SHARK CITY: With apologies to Brian Wilson, Jan & Dean, The Surfaris etc.
4. IAN: KING OF BEERS: Everyone who has ever attended college knew a guy like Ian. Or perhaps you WERE Ian. Many of the incidents in this song are based on actual events. The names have been changed to protect the guilty. Ian is currently making six figures as a corporate executive and is president of your local school board.
5. GENERIC LOVE SONG: Possibly the stupidest song I have ever written--and that's saying something.
