Rebel radio live (not actually live but alive and kicking, screaming actually after this damn keyboard’s tweaky deleting tendencies) from Los Anchorage which this evening is a paradise, blurring the lines between sea and sky, music and memory. So we tap a vein and let it run…Coming up music from Jonny Greenwood’s score to the […]

Bad as Me: Hanging with Tom Waits

Well virtually hanging anyway in the front seat of a very rusty old car with a great set of speakers.  New Waits album, Bad as Me scheduled to drop on October 25th but it’s been leaked and Tom’s not too happy about it.  A spoiled birthday surprise so to speak.  I can understand wanting to hear […]

800 Seeds redux

Wrote this poem years ago, but really liked how it came out live, with musical accompaniment.  Features Bridget Cross on Guitar and George Kuhar on Keys and Samples.  Second one came out of a poem I wrote in several segments, experimenting with narrative perspective while sitting in a very quiet room in a noisy, fragrant […]
