Abide (2009)

12 tracks by Mud Octave

Finished July 6th, 2009 after only six hours of recording, Abide is the culmination of the many influences of Mud Octave. I think these songs are some of my best. All of the life lessons and just plain ol' entertaining tunes, plus well over-due tasteful use of the MPC 500 make this batch a little bit more polished... A little bit more able to abide. Most songs were originally written for past albums but got lost momentarily.

This is one of the songs I wrote for Filthy Time that's been hiding in the back of a notebook waiting for music to be chugged out. I'm really glad I let this seep for a while before letting loose.

I Believe by far my most beautiful instrumental track, much the opposite of You Forgot Bush's War Crimes. Maybe because I haven't commited any? I'm growing to accept that most of the time, my instrumentals should be short and sweet.

This was supposed to be my "folky" track, but I love the way this turned out. It was originally written Napalm Shoot up but My Chair took it's place on that album.

Inspired partly by a co-worker who was a great, now lost musician. This track is somewhat about my five year stint in Gallup, New Mexico (Bob Dylan anyone?). This was written as a poem before I started writing Slumber Love.

I'm not usually good at mixing two of my songs together, but i think this turned out great. Maybe a little too Velvet Underground. Maybe nothing is ever too Velvet Underground... Written just for Abide.

Supposed to be the biggest joke on this album, Candle turned more into an actual like-able song. I was trying to make fun of Sonic Youth stuff, but it ended up growing and becoming an instant Mud Octave classic track. The Lyrics were written…

A couple months in a metal band called Season's Legion inspired this song. The lyrics were written in what we (Katie Lawrence Co-wrote) thought would be what their singer would have written for this type of song. The title was supposed to be…

I don't know if even I can tell, but this is inspired by Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica. Ok, maybe its not so well hidden. Katie Lawrence can be heard on this track, recording this having never seen the lyrics prior to.

Not much to say about this but that it's one of the first songs I actually wrote down every note for. I think that makes it a small cut above most of my instrumental songs.

I've never heard "Horse with No Name" all the way through, and i wasn't trying to rip it off, but i really like the melody i wrote for this and it turned out to fit perfectly with the sound of the bass. Really proud of my composing on this track…

This song is one of the few i wrote just for Abide. I've been listening almost non-stop to Dylan's latest release and this is what I got out of it. I mean no disrespect to Bob, just trying to sing my songs.

Drinking coffee at my modest kitchen table around noon, after just waking up, I starred out the skinny window next to my door and saw the back of a stairway. These Lyrics were partly inspired by Bukowski's style, partly remnants of growing up…read more

Dining Room Revolutions (2009)

13 tracks by Mud Octave

Some of my recently written poetry and music that I would like to dedicate to Chi Cheng of the Deftones who was in a car accident and has been in a coma for some time. He was one of the bassists that inspired me to pick up this instrument and I hope he recovers and can hear the work I've done and be proud he is the cause.

Bacteria In Your Butt (2009)

this was supposed to be half the cd, but i never got around to adding more... Immature Prejaculation turned out to be its twin, but not identical.

i wrote this cuz ummm i'm really annoyed with everyone thinking a president can be a good person and i think that obama is as much if not more of a liar than john mccain and just as much a murderer as bush

no one loves me. or the earth. whatever you wanna see it as. Big drum machine use is crucial to hitting the above the toilet line in music.
Uploaded
yea i missed. i think thats the most important thing.

you forgot about his crimes just because he's being replaced by another killer. if Gacy had been elected a replacement you'd still punish him right?
Uploaded
