Here’s the next installment in the Ghosts of Bush series. This one’s probably 3 years old or so. A bare bones one take sketch. Makes me want another PSS.

Ghosts of Bush

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

So I have 5 or 6 different album, single, and ep ideas that I’m working on but I don’t expect to have any finished work anytime in the near future. After running across this first track in my ipod’s vast circuitry I decided to offer up an evolving album of sorts that will be comprised of outtakes, oddities, experiments, demos etc. It will be called Ghosts of Bush and will be free and open to the public. I’ll try to publish new tracks fairly regularly here and on the FB page. Some will be new some old, some rubbish and perhaps some gold. Enjoy and pass along.
The first track is Orgasm In The Ghosts of Bush, a somewhat old track from the White Noise era.

Here’s the review that Preston Jones of OK Gazette wrote about the album at the time. The Gazette’s online archive doesn’t go back very far so I thought I’d post it here:

2121 (quiet night mix)

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

Continuing with this look back at the recording and release of “We Are”, here is an alternate mix of 2121 that pulls back some of the flesh of the song to reveal the skeleton. It also has parts that weren’t used in the final version. It’s a bit erratic but hopefully has enough interesting bits for you. Download it below the player.

Bob Dylan High

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

Here’s another outtake from the “We Are” era, this one is a weird little instrumental/noise/spoken word kind of thing. It would have been an interlude like “(Sound at)The Speed of Light” but I guess I cut it for brevity’s sake. It was inspired by a Philosophy teacher I had who was a really cool cat. He had us read Carlos Castaneda, Spinoza and listen to Dylan. He also wanted to name the new High School “Bob Dylan High” unfortunately they opted for the much more pedestrian, Norman North! Here’s the track:

We Are digital release

Monday, February 15th, 2010

This year marks the 5th anniversary of I and I! My first record “We Are” came out way back in ’05. Next Tuesday the 23rd “We Are” will finally be getting a proper digital release via Alchemist Records. The album has been remastered and over the next week I’ll post some out takes and random stuff from that era.
Here’s a weird track that didn’t make the album cut though the synth riff got incorporated into “Electrical”.

mormonfamily

I was given this little postcard on Saturday by a sister missionary of the Mormon faith who was kind enough to help me unload some plywood from the back of my truck. I found this picture so amusing that I had to post it here for your enjoyment. It’s easy to see how one could be persuaded to join up with the latter day saints with such awesome and inspiring advertising!:) I can’t tell if this is something they had left over from the 50’s or if it is a recent production made to remind you of those carefree halycon days. Is this supposed to be heaven? If you are a Mormon and read this I hope you will tell your church leaders to use your tithing money to buy better PR and marketing services.

Below is another little thing from the archives. The first mp3 and this one are both out takes from the ill fated “Dog” movie soundtrack. If I said that these represented a preview of the next I and I album I would be a liar, but they would make for a very wierd I and I release!
