• Taken


    The political theme, and lines like “we are patriotic by design,” were surely rooted in the first term of George W. Bush. It was 2002; after all. This was a demo and I played many of the instruments myself, but Mike Squires pitched in with bass and lead guitar.

  • Word Is Out

    Word Is Out

    Another song we developed from a demo of mine, this one features us beating on the air ducts with sticks to make percussion loops.

    Revisiting an earlier demo, this time it sounded a lot more like it should. RC plays great drums, I do my best Elvis Costello impression on the keys.

    Rejected pitch for Sherwin Williams. Assumed it would sell a lot of paint…

  • Sara Lee

    Sara Lee

    Pitch for a theme song for Sara Lee Corporation, but the song was too “edgy” and was not actually “played” for them.

  • Diabolickal


    Not only did this track provide us with a name for our act, but the laid-back groove gave us our second video, which is sufficiently abstract that I think it holds up pretty well.
