girls always laugh at me *

bobby mentioned this song to me, i had heard it a long time ago, i really like it, so i did a quick recording of it to see if jonathan would be interested doing something on it. when i im'ed bobby and he was playing the song, he told me his daughter nikki was laughing at me.

nothing new...

so here is my version of a lucinda williams song.

celena *

i was listening to a conversation between my daughter and her friend, they were playing twins, she turned to me and said, daddy we are nocturnal twins. it sounds like a good name for the band, anyway, its the first suggestion!

here is another little snippet of a song, got the amp jacked today and "celena" popped out!

wakey wakey *

we have been on hiatus, i had made calls, we were scheduled to play with larry on drums, but family problems have cancelled tomorrows date with larry. so i picked up a guitar, its been almost a week since i touched one, plugged in, and this is the first thing i played. i recorded a short snippet so i don't forget it.

september *

the plan: to start playing open mikes with just the two of us, to start honing the material in public, and to meet prospective band members. we do have a drummer with a very large drum set that is anxious to play, we will make plans to get together at his house soon.

i have been writing lyrics all weekend to try and meld them to the 3 or 4 demos i have recorded in the last month and a half, and learning/playing a few covers that might adapt to our template.

the song i am most anxious to write lyrics for is this demo. i recorded this in jonathans bedroom to serve as a reference track for him to add his guitar. its just me playing electric and slapping my bare foot on his floor.
