A short exercise in "Hey! Do something for a mid-70's movie/TV sci-fi soundtrack!"
It's a love song. About zombies
Another song from yet another band I'm in, The Eric Weiler Band. Generally the quick-and-dirty go-to description many people find for us is along the lines of "Tom Waits singing for the E Street Band." Make your own call. I play the Hammond.
Inspired and about the 1972 Wes Craven film of the same name, this is a live recording on stage from last week with one of my current bands, The Filthy Thirds. Props to Erich Schuchman and Lou Whitney (of The Skeletons, The Morrells, Wilco producer, and Jonathon Richman) for the fine, fine capture. I play the bass.
This is Bell Dora, an alt-country band I had until very recently. Here we are, I'm the one in orange. It's a bit of a ballad, and was my first foray ever into the pedal steel (a crazy-hard instrument). I used the C6 slab.
A short surf instrumental. One of the bands I'm currently in, The Filthy Thirds, has started a side project/alter ego group called The Boogeymen. It is a horror/surf project where we mash up classic horror movie persona's with early 60's surf. We wrote all our own surf songs, our only cover being a "Wipeout" style version of John Carpenter's "Halloween" theme. Our debut show is in a couple of weeks and we will play in costume. My character is Mummy Holly. This song gets its title from an H.P. Lovecraft book,and was recorded with a hanging mic in the basement, yet is surprisingly clear. Some lead guitar was overdubbed.
From an all-original Power-Pop group I'm currently in called The Rugs. I played bass and keys (Hammond, Wurlitzer, Synth) in the studio but just play the keys on stage. Our longest song clocks in at under three minutes.
