 One Last Time as the Summer is Ending

Let’s go Surfing!

Figure we give it one last shot, or should we say “WAVE” while the weather is still hot and the water is even hotter!

Surfing was a song that was written in collaboration from my first band, The Lampshades. I came up with the bass riff and the band joined in and contributed to make the basics of the song. I wrote the lyrics and sung the song. This version still has the basic’s and lyrics intact, although it was re-imagined with some new twists to the song.

I hope I got everyone — if i missed someone apologies

What a wild time in my life working and playing at the Mudd Club! My partner Bill and I through our sound system company Centour Sound became the production managers of the club after John Kessler was done doing his stint as the production manager. Just before John left we had the extreme pleasure of John, Bill and I working together to work with Frank Zappa who played the Mudd Club! We brought in extra equipment and a bigger mixing console to accommodate his band. Terry Bozzio was on the drums at that time. That was a thrill to work with a master in such a small venue. There is a sketchy bootleg, sounds to me like someone had a cassette tape recorder and taped it in the midst of the crowd. The recording is on you tube, I included the link – I remember that Frank had his own sound person do a recording right from the board, so that must be available somewhere in some Zappa archive.

We worked with a lot of different bands & artists from Samba to Punk, experimental to down right BAD–fashion shows and you name it everything in between. DJ’s Anita Sarko (who has passed away in 2015) and DJ David Azarch made the club hum, jump and jive into the wee hours of the morning. In which we usually ended up going to an after hours club and came out squinting as the sun was fully out and blaring while we were going home and watching the rest of the world just going to work.  I will add more Mudd Club memories in my blog as time goes by – Keith Herring, Johnny Thunders, Question Mark and the Mysterians, Sam and Dave, John Belushi, wow and so many – so stay tuned in! –

 

 

Back in my punk days, this is a hard driving tune that keeps moving from beginning to end. Heavy guitar and a steady 4/4 drum beat with a short lead burst in the middle of the song. Well it’s cleaner then The Ramones but similar in it’s simplicity. It only take a little under 3 minutes from start to finish.

I think I have some aspirations to make a video, so keep checking back as I have some idea’s what to film and how it should look.

Heavy guitar licks and repetitive vocal lines leads this song as an anthem to the fight. The struggle of the every day that can be overcome if you fight through it. The every man’s mantra to persevere in all life’s adversities. Listen and get inspired to drive on and fight the fight to the end.

Da da Dee Da is a whimsical little number that the rhythm and vocals just keep laying over one and another. It started by me just playing an acoustic guitar riff over and over. As it progressed I tried adding lyrics but all I kept coming up with is DA da Dee Da in which mimicked the guitar riff. So I took the notes and added a horn section and layered that in the back ground. A sax solo fit in very melodically with that haunting like echo on it. I just kept laying vocals in all ranges and at one point I called my wife in and had her lay down a few vocal laying tracks. In fact the last vocal Da da Dee da you hear as all the other vocals fade out is my wife’s vocal. One thing about this song is that when you hear it once Da da Dee Da will stick in your head for the rest of the day.

Knowledge is Power is one of my favorite songs on the album. The heavy guitar riff leading into the vocals just works so well. The lyrics are interesting as the main guitar riff lends itself to the key vocal line, “knowledge is power”. The full lyric verses were a little more difficult to come up with. I knew what I wanted to convey and say but I could not come up with the words to convey it. Thus, let’s go to google and put in the phrase, “Knowledge is Power”. So many different idea’s started to form around that phrase. The actual phrase was formulated by philosopher Francis Bacon during the time of Enlightenment. I was immersed in many different ways to convey “Knowledge is Power” but now I had to make the words fit into the song and for it to make sense (at least to me). After I got the first verse down and the phrasing to the music, it all clicked and fit in. One of my favorite lines in the song is, “Putting our knowledge we know, In the hands of machines”. The guitar lead comes after the 3rd verse, it follows the acoustic guitar and then comes in heavy and eclectic. Listen to the words as the meanings are profound.
