about

Over the years, I've recorded literally hundreds of songs, under humble circumstances, often collecting them on homemade cassettes with titles like "Accept No Imitations", "Footnotes to the Footnotes" and "Fight for Your Right to Be Pouty" to give out to friends. Here are 22 of my favorites.

I have intentionally eschewed (a) cover songs, due to the requirements of the homemade lofi psych blog (where this collection made its debut), (b) songs that I have rerecorded and released with a band, and (c) recordings by actual bands (although there are a few guest appearances).

Much of the weirder, more experimental stuff was ignored in favor of actual songs, but two of the best instrumental improvisations ("Reginald at the Beach" and "Waterfalls") made the grade.

Enjoy, and if you like what you hear, there's more where it came from!
