Just want to let everyone know I’m still alive and kickin’. Just working and writing. I feel like I need to change something. There’s something buzzing in my lower back. I’m full and empty at the same time. Not sure when the bus is coming.

From Niger, Etran Finatawa. Like the band Tinariwen, they play the style of music known as “desert blues,” referring to the guitar band style coming out of the Sahara Desert region of Africa.

Judy Henske, from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. The queen of the beatniks. One of my favorite thriller-writers, Andrew Vachss, the protagonist in most of his books, Burke, often listened to Judy Henske tapes as he drove around New York. One day I decided to look for her name on the internet, and I found this great song. I found one of my very favorite writers, Joe R Lansdale, the same way, he was often mentioned in Vachss’s books, too.

Genesis will be remembered as the prog rock band they were until the singer quit, and the guitar player quit. Their later fame as a stadium-filler art-pop/AOR band will be forgotten. This is probably the song they’ll be most remembered for, “The Musical Box” from 1971.

I’m releasing a new album today called “The Rise And Fall Of”. Its mostly a collection of older songs and demos that I spiced up a bit. It started as my ongoing attempt to archive my music on the WWW. This Album just kind of made itself.
I put it up on Bandcamp and will get it up here with a couple free downloads soon.

PiL’s “Poptones” from their Metal Box album, 1979 Virgin Records. I read John Lydon’s autobiography, oh at least 5 years ago. I remember he’d keep the rats out of his father’s crane. Like his dad was one of the best London crane operators, but there were rats that climbed up these cranes, and John would be waiting with a cricket bat.

Antony and the Johnsons (“Hope There’s Someone”). Here I am in the middle of the night, having broken up with my woman, Michelle, probably for the last time. Of all the mix cd’s I made her in our 4 months, by far she loved Antony the best. He’s one of my very favorite writer/performers of today. All his songs are good, many are awesome. This is my personal fave, although Michelle preferred “For Today I Am A Boy.”

So along with Captain Paper I’m putting up the On The Speakers demos. I figure I’ll just put up up every damn thing I’ve ever done and can find eventually. The web is as good a place as any to store my artwork. I seem to loose so much stuff along the way. I’ve moved in and out of apartments and practice spaces so many times. I was perhaps a modern day gypsy. CD’s, hard drives, dats, tapes, and even people. Things just seem to peel off and get lost.
