44 tracks by World War Nine

An instrumental I worked on with the intention of eventually using it as the rhythm section of an actual song, with actual words & what-have-you. Born out of a desire to make it through this godforsaken winter here in Minnesota & hit the Econo…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…
Shouts out to Laser Jesus & his comrade-at-arms Robot Moses for giving us the traction we needed to pull this off. This song is an effort to blend influences of beat-boxing, freestyle lyrical flows, Tuvan throat singing, & space-age jazz lounge…read more
This song was inspired by me finding out one day that I am no longer impressed by people just because they work for one of the intelligence agencies in the Federal government. For instance, it is sort of embarassing that the NSA are still licking…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
Frustrated with some of his familial challenges, Jack Merlot makes time to spend with his surrogate ( LEPIDOPTERA ) family, who have recently adopted a turtle from nearby Lake Minnetonka.
They used to be called "White Russians", back in the day. Now some people have got to callin' em "Caucasians", which I guess usually wouldn't sit that well with some folk. Well, not at first. But now that the curtains have closed on Shadowbroker…read more

This single is an unreleased song written for the "Knockin' Boots with the Two-Bit Grifter Sisters" full-length L.P. It's unrelated to the L.P. itself, obviously, but it's a jazzy little number with some interesting elements I thought I'd share…read more
Well this is the third disc of the three-disc set known as "Knockin' Boots with Seraphim Lepidoptera Inside the 7-11 Bathroom", which is the live 1979 vinyl-only release from the Amoeba Discs in-store all-acoustic set from the Big Island. Many…read more
Ah, the second disc of the "Knockin' Boots with Theremin Lepidoptera Inside the 7-11 Phone Booth" three-disc set. Not much to narrate here, the music is laid-back sorta trance-y with some jazz inflections & a nod to Righteous Babe Records for…
The first disc in the three-disc set of the 1979 re-release of Jack Merlot & the Urban Matadors' "Knockin' Boots with the Two-Bit Grifter Sisters" all-acoustic in-store performance, recorded live, on location at the Big Island's Amoeba Discs…
I know field recordings are somewhat frowned upon here, but this recording, "Soundproof Sex Dungeon", also has Ake Kappatsu noodling around on a filter agent.
From the album "Blood Work", by World War Nine's very own Ake Kappatsu, with Jack Merlot on the Hydrogen drum generator. Some tracks produced by Toby Lucien, others produced by Word60 ( http://www.alonetone.com/word60 ) Still others produced…read more
The SAP10 test is either a Urinalysis or blood test ( I can't remember which. ) It is a drug screen.
Everybody I'm sure has their favorite story to tell about their favorite heroin addict getting all bent out of shape about having to go to the "goddamned clinic" every time they don't want to be junk sick. Myself, I'll just be over here getting…read more
Another Urinalysis, this one using Lithium levels to monitor patients for medication compliance as well as illicit drug use.
This means you're not supposed to be able to get real medication anymore because you've proven to the doctors you're a two-bit grifter & a zero-seven burnout with no hope of recovery.
Ah, good old Mickey's Fine Malt Liquor.

Another drug screen, not sure if this is a blood draw or some other urinalysis.

Chutes & Ladders, anyone? My good friend Ake Kappatsu performs on the analog modular synthesizer while I tweak da fuq out of some knobs & faders.

The opening of the Chalcedony Collossus takes us to the Boneyard, where, prior to being the final resting place of several other Titans, goliaths, & collossi, it laid it's marrow-filled bones out before the casual adventurer to document the eras…read more
The Chalcedony Collossus' appearance in the Boneyard while Jack Merlot is there, is described herein. These files suck BTW I'm publishing these because I want to listen to my improv/freestyle sessions in my car to see if I can make any sense…
This is just a freestyle vocal into an Audacity session that tells the meandering story of Jack Merlot's latest adventure in the Boneyard. It ( truly ) sucks and I commend you, oh Adventurous One, for wanting to expose your earholes to my practice…
This song is just... some improvised music I recorded for a Valentine's Day project that I now realize will never happen. So, in the spirit of the Creative Commons, I'm posting the Tuvan-throat-singing-Buddhist-Monk multitrack vocal session…read more
The Dagger Dolls kept their accoutrements inside this small locked cabinet. But that doesn't stop Johnny Rebel After Midnight from taking a wild stab at it, to take another jab at it, to try and break free from the habit that's plagued him so long.
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
She went her way, I went mine. I read about what happened to her in the tabloid papers. They were already covering her struggles with drugs & alcohol. So it just made sense for me to write a little bit about what it was like, with her, and…read more
Shorty Reporting from a bumpin' club kittycorner to the Stalingrad Laser Tag Arena. While the familiar drone of Katelynne's hard Russian house beats new life into old souls, you can hear the off nights from working all the old brites into beamers…read more
