Upon the completion of the 2020 RPM Challenge, I was never comfortable with the vocal Perry (or was that Singh? Igor?) did on "Blues for Bob." One RPM artist that stood out to me this year was RTO because I heard especially strong vocals in a…read more

So Nancy says to me, "You need to bring out that one part more after the first melody line in the last chorus." (She really didn't say it like that, but you get the idea.) At first I thought about adding dulcimer and fiddle to the mix (being part…read more

I love Wilsun's 2020 RPM album "Departure", so I decided to cover it (yes, the whole album), but with a twist. I found some bits to be repetitive, so I removed them. I wrote down the lyrics and chords, and promptly ignored the originals, making…read more

Well it's been a long while (as seems to be the pattern lately) and I was inspired by Greg and Ron's new songs.... Then I saw a lovely note from the Proods saying "I must have been writing during this crazy time" - so I had to respond with something…read more

A post on the Facebook RPM group featured a quote from an aging Dave Grohl complaining about Kids These Days and Their Terrible Music, pointing out that the current number-one song was about someone's butt. So, I wrote a song about my butt…read more

There is actually a LOT of goose poop at my office park, but I opted to use the joke title referring to my favorite Beach Boys song. FWIW, the drum loops came from https://www.organicdrumloops.com/

Here is a cover of Matt Ferrara's song "Obey" - Had this song stuck in my head for a good chunk of February, so I figured I would put it to tape. A little slower than the original with a similar feel. I really wanted to see if I could record…read more

The closing number, the thoughtful number. It says more than goodbye.

My post-RPM Challenge plan is to just keep going. Here's my first March 2020 Challenge song. I am trying to go much more raw and low-fi than usual. One guitar straight into one amp. No doubling, not extensive overdubs. Same with the vocals…read more

Is it surf music? Exotica? Both? Neither? Did Jacques Cousteau have anything to do with this? Percussion on this one by Cyclops Cow and Sum Gai.

A track over twenty years in the making. I came up with it sitting in front of the TV with an unplugged borrowed Rickenbacker 360 (thanks, Mark). The Santana vibe just happened. I made a four track cassette recording of it just to get it down…read more

Swamp Thing is a custom built guitar by Tony Louscher at Luthier's Workshop in Green Bay, WI. I wrote the main riff three years ago and it sounded "swampy" to me. For the 2020 RPM Challenge, I dusted off the little riff and created this tune…read more

I like it.

I love surf music complete with Fender guitars dripping in lots of spring reverb. This one came out of the clear blue and somehow developed the double-naught spy thing in the process. Matt plays lead. He's got the surf thing down pat!

Project X is simply about making music for the pleasure of making music. It’s about playing and experimenting, working the writing and recording processes and seeing what happens as a result.

PX’s first release, “The Dark Side of the Moo,” was completed as part of the 2019 RPM Challenge and released in early March. It’s an eclectic instrumental mix of rock n’ roll sub-genres like progressive, surf, British Invasion, 1960s soul, alternative, and power pop.

Project X returns with the new album, “Are You Sure You’re Not Where You Are?” Born on February 28, 2020, it too was produced as part of the 2020 RPM Challenge. “Are You Sure…” is another kaleidoscope of rock n’ roll styles, this time featuring blues, latino, punk, ballad, and even a bit of exotica alongside surf, progressive, and pop. Regardless of the diverse styles, “Are You Sure…” is a cohesive album and shows marked growth.

from Appleton, WI, US
