Had a chance this summer to wrap up some more recording and managed to have enough songs for a little release. Some of these songs stretch back a decade or more, recorded from Salem and Portland Oregon, all the way across the Pacific here in Fukuoka Japan. Some of it is a little lo-if and quirky, but the songs meant something to me as a time capsule of my life in my late 20's and early 30s. Plus a Daniel Johnston cover. Hope you enjoy it .

We finally finished up the 4th studio Born Shit Stirrers album, with an EP in its wings coming soon. I had a few more jobs to do on this one this time around. You can download it digitally from bandcamp below, or in the near future, order a hard copy via Serial Bowl Records out of Sunderland, UK. Here or here. Thanks for all the support!

Next week I get the honor to play guitar in the backing band of Don Matsuo from the Zoobombs. It also coincides with Gigi's 12th anniversary. It's been a great place to play at over the years, and it's a local music institution at this point. Well, here in Fukuoka Japan anyhow. If you haven't heard of the Zoobombs, check them out next time they come to the U.S. or Canada. They are nuts.
....yeah, we're playing this.......

I was again honored to be played on The Watt From Pedro Show recently a few episodes back. One of my favorite broadcasts. If you haven't check it out, do. You can catch these shows or others at https://www.twfps.com

First and maybe last show for the gaijin punk band I play in. Get the bootleg while you can. Here it is. I think these pictures sum it up as well.....More recording starts next week. No rest for me.......

Hi! Three things!
#1 The band and I have a new EP out today. We did this 100% by ourselves over the last year. I'm not sure what it is, or if it's good, but we tried. Big thanks to Jan Bart Leeuw for playing Harmonium and Clavinet, and Jon Bates for a few Screams. https://godzillasnacks.bandcamp.com/album/cave-dwellers
#3 I'm honored to have been asked to play guitar in the backup band for Don Matsuo of Zoobombs in Fukuoka in May. Crazy, considering it was one of my wife's favorite Japanese bands of the 90's. It's been a while just being a guitar player and I'm looking forward to the rehearsals. Even though I suck at Japanese.
Alright. That's all for now.
