It's much too still, I hear no crying

Seems I've always had a weakness for dark, disturbing ditties concerning babies. They speak to me (the songs, not babies).  I've even tried my hand at a few. Perhaps the most delightfully dismal of them all is Dolly Parton's "Down from Dover." I suppose this is a cover of a cover, as I've had Marianne Faithfull's rendition on heavy rotation for a couple of months. Once again, all credit due to Philip McArdle. He even made my scratchy, hoarse vocals sound intentional. Philip, you're a wizard.

Clean up the air and treat the animals fair

I had the pleasure of visiting my twin brother Philip and his beautiful wife Andrea in Tacoma, Washington a couple of weeks ago. It was cold, it was gray. It was the perfect opportunity to record some covers of a couple of songs for which Philip and I both have an affinity. Both suited the weather rather well, too. Recording and instruments, real and manufactured (with the exception of the tambourine) credited to Philip.

 Another cover coming imminently.


New album: Fear the Dream of Axes

Oh my goodness, the long wait for the sequel to Summer of the Whore is nearly over. My new album, Fear the Dream of Axes, is coming out this July on Bar/None Records. Just like last time, the magical Adam D. Gold produced the record at his Ohrealyum Studios. I'll have mp3s and more details soon.

Adam working his magic...
