MOTION PICTURE SCRIPTS
Loose or uncompleted titles not listed.
CONCEPTS OF ILLUSION 2/81
Tight combination of metal and atmosphere. Fledging fusapunk, a technical mix of jazz, punk, and psychedelic metal.
Industrial to the core! No Midi or machines in those days! Very experimental using multi-part time signatures and the inclusion of syncopation using digital delays. Hardcore edged vocals make this LP one big Head Trip!
Less than a month later I'm back to doing hardcore edged punk. Probably due to my band then, The Drugs. I joined as the singer, then moved into guitar as I learned to play better than our guitarist. A little too sloppy for my tastes today, but who says that is important!
Rock N Roll Party Time
I wrote this one outside of The Drugs. Into heavy atmospheric industrial. I laid this LP onto 4-track, made a bunch of copies, then spilt coke-a-cola on the master! Titles were being influenced by various literature and philosophy. This concept LP dealt with the stigma of death.
Cloud Death 21579
My first EP. A conceptional 4-some about astral projection. Lots of thick overtones.
Last Journey Past Planet Earth
The last batch of songs from The Drugs. Most written live with scattered 4-track recordings. We split because my guitar playing was becoming "too uncool" for the other guys - I was improving and writing all the parts. Then too I had written all the stuff in the band anyway.
Return of the Virgin King
Within a week of looking for new players, I had these solo songs ready. For some nostalgic /romanticism this album remains one of my favorites. The tunes are true power metal, very strong and powerful.
Kingdom of the Eagle
My transition out of my truly adolescent 'punk' phase into heavy feedback experimentation. Flowing phasers and shifting flange mark most of these songs. This album's material is very relaxing. Everyday the neighborhood kids are hanging out and watching me play, long jams and lots of volume.
