The Slithered King

Uploaded .

This tune hopefully shows the culmination of my musical influences (namely, Mick Karn (R.I.P.), Adrian Sherwood, Bill Laswell, Jah Wobble…) while also painting a visual picture…as it was written and recorded in one day after I went free-diving on the Izu Peninsula of Japan and had a moray-eel swim up behind me and scare the crap out of me. The drive through the mountains of Izu on the way home contains sounds of doppler insects. So…everything comes together as “The Slithered King.”

When I invented music, I had no idea that it would become so popular or that so many people would enjoy making it.
