T-BACK HEELS 1/96

2nd in that sex-thing trio. Heavy grooves, stimulation of masturbation by music. Some experimental cuts using stack tracks. Around this time I'd give anything for a good work station.

Stunner
Never Look Back
Techno Overkill
Machette
Pique
Ol Bisquit
Slap Happy
Used & Abused

Wretch


BEER BELLY 10/95-1/96

This EP is a homage to all those who burn the candle at both ends, eat really unhealthy food, and find out a few years later the pants size has gone up 4 or 5 notches. It's really a fun power-punk-in-your face thing that decries logic and all commercial viability. In other words...I could care less.

Contents:

Cliff Hanger
BBQ
R&R Gangster
Political Nightmare
Register
Blinking Green Light
Mainframe


AMBIENT CHAMBER 12/95-1/96

Originally, writing for this EP began a few years back, but after reviewing the material in late 1995, I trashed all the songs and started anew. AC is a return to the experimental industrial mode. It is based on a witch cult that uses sacriledge and blood-letting in an old burnt out church to attempt to achieve pagan bliss; no, it didn't actually exist in that you could actually go there, nonetheless these type establishments are all over the world, and are growing at an alarming rate. It's midnight, do you know where your children are? Old confidant Rich "The Gore" Kilgore stopped by for a session where he experimented on bass for the tracks on this EP. Haunting textures blasted by feedback...do they actually allow this kind of entertainment in America these days?

Contents:

Dosed
Sex-Slave
Alfredo
Kabuki


HYPERMEDIA 1/96

The title and all the material in this album came about after I spent many hours trying to build a multimedia presentation, only to have some drunk hit a power pole near my house and erase the whole thing.

Contents:

Boot Me Up
Pixel Pusher
CPU (Contrived Pathetic Underling)
High Speed Transfer (Inst.)
Hookup
Virtual Fantasy
Browser
System Failure
Bit By It
Hard Drive
Internal Affairs
Compression


SYMBOL OF EXCELLENCE 1/96-?

I have decided to go out to Los Angeles and attempt to find some musicians for Pit Boss, the working name for my new band...have I already mentioned this? What was I talking about, oh yeah, Symbol Of Excellence...I think the title has something to do with a car commercial, or a recent delusion I had...whatever...the music kicks ass, a dark mix of experimental feedback/stack track layers with goth tendencies... got all that and the titles, maybe before I leave Georgia I'll have the lyrics...at this point, all I really want is some kraut and weenies, and a long nap...CYZA!!!

Contents:

Jesus was a Punker
Symbols
Clickface
Sample Stack
Viking Song
Business Can Wait
Fade
Strange Redundancy
Windstorm
Stop the Music
Knotty Boy



TWEAK 3-4/96

This is some crazy shit. Written when I had been in California for a few months and was trying to get a footing. About all the tripped out folks living around Hollywood in 5th rate dives....probably, still that way no matter what year you're in. Some killer stuff though....

Contents:

Wah Wah Head
Southern Cal Gal
Tweaked
Drenched
Glass Pipe
Town Is Closed Down!!!
LAPD
90 cc's
Fat Matt's Rib Shack
Sycamore & Romaine
Swat Daddies
Vine Lodge


HARDCORE 5-8/96

I now realize the stuff I'm writing now is much better than anything else I have done in the past. I start looking around for a new guitar rig and really start enjoying myself dancing like a fool almost nightly and yelling at whores on the Boulevard. This complete album is dedicated to Hollywood!!! This album completely smokes!!!

Contents:

Wiggin
Hollywood!
Blaster
Vice Squad
Gang Bangin' Bitch
Boulevard
Cheap Drunk
Dream Center
Forgotten Songs
Tele-Kinesis
Coffee High
Stud-Monster


SONS OF THUNDER 7-8/96

During my writing Hardcore (which originally was called Hollywood Must Burn), I wrote the material for Sons Of Thunder, harkening to my firm religious beliefs, how my faith in God has kept me from losing my mind out here on the west coast, and the need to do some intense prophesizing (sic).......This is some high-brow stuff!!!!

Contents:
Hazar
Nazir
Logia
tres socii
Breath Of God
Humble Spirit
sursum corda
sabeism
River Of Life
sopherim
Kizai
Peraklit
Maran atha
Ain-el-Haramie
Sons Of Thunder


ANGEL SPEAK 8/96

In a few days at the end of August, some stuff that was a little too dark for Sons was put on an EP called Angel Speak. This stuff is not to be toyed with, it is as dark as you can get.

Contents:

First Minister (also known as Angelspeak)
The Apostle
Angel Melathronos
Fire Of Creation


CREME MINT COOKIES 10/96

I had to lighten up a bit, so CMC is a breath of total open party-time celebration. I wrote this outside my working band at the time, System X, in case it didn't last and my original plans for Pit Boss had to be enacted. So I put together this EP, which will definitely be the first batch of songs the new band works on...It's AWESOME!!!!

Contents:

Good Time
Vanilla Cookies
Win
LLM
Do Ya Want Me?


ELECTRO PUNK 12/96

I wore out a new marshall and a used Ibanez jamming writing this one. I have been trying to put together a new band called Pit Boss to record and tour. System X has gone the way of the wind. As usual it's stars without a clue, unadepts and junkies. LA fuckin' sucks!!! This album shows alot of the anger and frustration I feel and see on a daily basis out here in the streets. it also reflects many of the things that hold alot of the good ones back out here and ruin too many lives.

Contents:

Electro Punk
Batch
Funk Me
Amonia
Stupid Bastard
Whiskey Blend
Smog Machine
