Eight!! Eight beautiful victims!!!!


It frustrates me that those sexy blood sucking freaks can "glamour" the Children's Television Workshop executives into giving one of their own a sweet mathematics gig whilst well credentialed zombies remain completely unemployable.

THE LOVE SONGS: I'M TIRED & CRANKY

A music video for U.S. stadium rock combo The Love Songs, featuring members of Your Mother whom my old band Nancy Vandal once embarked on an explosive Australian tour from Alexandria to Mildura [and nowhere in between].

THE GRAVE SHAKERS TRAILER

A short trailer for issue 1 of my comic book series The Grave Shakers. It tells the tale of a mad scientist turned rogue record label kingpin who uses cutting edge cloning technology to reanimate dead rock stars. A rollicking rock and roll thriller ensues in the cinematic tradition of "Kiss Meet The Phantom of the Park" and "The Boys From Brazil".

1975-1982. When rock ruled planet earth.


As reported in the alternate Musk universe, we finished another day recording the debut ep on the weekend. I love Recording studios - it's easily the best part of the whole being in a band thing. Unlike playing live, I can overcome my musical deficiencies somewhat [via the glory of multiple takes, cut/paste and software plugins] to produce something greater than the sum of it's parts. Sure it would be cool to be an awesome Jon Spencer / Nicholaus Arson type live performer but you need skill, looks and charisma - the software for which has yet to be invented.

So far the recording seems to be coming together pretty well, though whether the wider music listening world is ready for a homage of the imho awesome 1975-1982 rock era is another thing entirely. "Probably not" is the common sense answer but it will not be through lack of effort on my part. To help things along I shall now use the power of this massively influential blog to celebrate a bunch of my favourite late 70s rock tracks floating around the youtubes. Check it after the bump.....
