This was an RPM track back in the day, and I've been playing it various ways to find a setting for it within the band repertoire. This doesn't sound much like our band would do it but it came out nicely, so i thought i'd share it.

Final version Day 28 Anyone else still writing songs? this is the result of trying to listen to too many mixes in one day. Sometimes it's just easier to record something else.

The somewhat hesitant yet still compelling story of how a two-bit grifter by the name of Jack Merlot was working late into the evening one night, practicing his walking-stick-like bass lines on a dreadnought guitaron, when, much to his surprise…read more

This composition is an extension of my goal to evolve musically by working on each part of the music individually. I'm still seeing what works / doesn't work, it's hard out here for a pimp. In any case, I'm getting a hella much better at…read more

Everyone probably knows the Holy Roller Ice Queen this song was inspired by. She's majorly bipolar, it's either the greatest moment in the history of humankind or a blowout disaster than even Superman couldn't fix. I accept both the credit…

@Crossroads

@jackmerlot: Hello? I think I’m in the right place, but there is nobody around right now?
@raven: Caw! Never-more.
@jackmerlot: Well a fat lot of good you are. Can you say anything else, or are you one of those greasy, diseased birds with no conscience?
@raven: Kra-Kaw! Never-more…never-mind…he’s here!
@mingus: And I suppose you’re wondering what you’d do, for a lifetime subscription to Ernie Ball’s Bass Strings of the Month club, & a signed copy of the Black Saint & the Sinner Lady?
@jackmerlot: Hey, wait a minute. A guy that kinda looked like you gave me this card. pulls out business card, printed on heavy bond stock with slightly raised monogram letterpress printed on it
@mingus: Ah, uh, yeah. I mean, Ah Um.
@raven: Kraaaakkow! RED-RUM!
@jackmerlot: Hey, thanks a lot for meeting me, but you’re not actually the guy I meant to meet here.
@woodyguthrie: May I help you?

He’s standing in a State Fair Kissing Booth about 20 yards from @crossroads.

Do you wish to trade business cards with Woody Guthrie? ( y/n )

Aww, man. My cousin’s youngest just turned one; his name is Arlo. I never axed my cousin if they named him after Arlo Guthrie, but I guess in the back of my mind I always assumed they probably considered that when they named him.

“This Machine Kills… Fascists.” written in Sharpie marker on Woody Guthrie’s acoustic guitar.

Gumbo was born in New Orleans on July 4th 1900 and died in 1964 in Memphis after hearing The Beatles for the first time. He re-incarnated a few days later in an obscure region of North West Europe, and he’s been trying to make sense of those few days ever since.

He still makes born-again banjoe music on the guitar, and JuJu sandwiches. He was recently re-united with his cousins, The McCoys, who live in the hills of Co Clare. Not literally of course. They actually live on the hills.

from The Windy West of Ireland
