Video killed the radio star

Radio star. Yeah, right. How about the “only in his tiny little mind” star? Anyhoo, this just in from Mr. Liss.

Seven-year itch

A little background for ya: Seven years ago in this very room (Tess’ crib), singer-songwriter Jonathan Bright broke a string in the middle of a song, bringing his set to an abrupt end. It was one of his last local performances. So, here he is tonight, finishing that song. And here’s to more. Peace y’all, […]

Julia got back

30 Mar
Winston and Julia embrace.

It’s official. I’m the worst audio engineer on the planet. Julia hides in plain sight. She’s rough. Prole-like, even. (But don’t tell her that. She’ll cut you.) She’s also a bit bottom heavy.

broken glasses on bass

Still no glasses. Headed to Dr. TJ Eckleburg’s today though for the hookup, thanks. I posted MP3’s of what I hope are the final mixes for the new song “Out,” which I wrote and recorded last week for my brother Jason’s new short flick In the Alley. They’re for Jason’s ears only – unless you […]

In the works…

23 Mar
Jason stares down a gun.

The bad news: my glasses snapped in two last week. Still haven’t had a chance to replace them. Busy busy busy. Put out his eyes. Apologise. The good news: thanks to a lot of late night sessions in the home studio, the new song ‘Julia’ is almost done. Acoustic and electric guitars, bass, a simple […]

To release or not to release

To release or not to release

That is the question. After much toying with the idea of an official CD release of Spy Love Box – and even after the rush and satisfaction and sense of closure that’s come with recording ‘Julia’ as the final track on the project – I’m back in the “it’s only available for download” camp. Feels […]

Meet the Super Friends

Meet the Super Friends

We begin the evening with that fine photogenic fellow John Powhida and his merry band of Rudds. Meanwhile, upstairs, Frank and Seamus get ready to document the rock for Super 400’s forthcoming live album. Would you believe this room – second floor of Tess’ Lark Tavern – was the set for the Babylon video? At […]
