Description : Another older but unfinished from 1978. Recorded on the Teac 3340 in dad's basement at the same time period as "Lovely One" and "Rodlac" which is soon to come. Unfortunately, there's no vocals because my friend Tom Buffe wrote some awesome lyrics for this which we BOTH proceeded to lose. I still hear the melody and can sing it to this day but I just feel I can't re-create the lyrics which I don't remember (lol). Supposed to be hard, driving rock obviously. Although I love John, I was never happy with the guitar solo although I do have to say that after much direction, we nailed the last 15 seconds of it right to the nail as I heard it and that made it all worth while.
Igor- music, vocals (yeah right!) Clavinet
Description : Another unfinished part of my new CD, "Igor's Bag 'O' Fun". My friend, like some of the other new ones, is coming over to play bass and guitar on my newer stuff. I can't wait to hear when all of this new stuff is done. I'll definitely be uploading it here first. I'm also finally going to do some new all band pieces, including vocals and harmony (and bears, oh my!)
Description : Another completed a long time ago from my new CD, "Igor's Bag'O'Fun"
Done on Windows 98 with Cool Edit Pro....
...rock on, Adobe Audition!
right after I quit playing and turned to samples as creation.
This was fun and is very funny
Description : ...sorry, I just had to post this here. You guys have been so appreciative. This is with me and my post high school friends doing this as an afterthought to fill up a local concert in the same high school auditorium. We were, except the guitar player, playing in the same band together. We were doing a local concert using the high school orchestra and choir. The bass player's father was the music teacher. We did a lot of other modern songs too. But this, in addtion to the fact that the guitar player, Bobby Lustgarden is incredible, only 18-19 at the time and agreeably, one of the only live band recordings of this song ever
Igor- Clavinet, Fender Rhodes, Electrocomp sythn white noise function, lead vocal
Vince- bass, background vocals
Rob - drums, background vocals
Bobby - guitars, background vacals
Description : Another sample piece from the Audition collection. Another unfinished number.
Description : A part of my new sample collection. This one is unfinished. I plan to have a guitar friend of mine come in and spruce it up. I'd appreciate some critisism and feedback about what might come next.
Description : The first complete track from my new work 'Igor's Bag-O-Fun' This is all samples recorded on Adobe Audition. A bit more contemporary theme, it's my take on Camp X-Ray in Guantanemo.
It features the real voice of the infamous Tokyo Rose
Description : This one I worked on with my girlfriend at the time and my first PC recording. Done on 3 Thursday afternoons. I wrote the music, vocal parts, played all keyboards and tweaked the drum machine program. She ( debbiemajor.com) wrote the lyrics and sang it. My friend Vince plays guitar and wrote the original drum program. For track sheet and lyrics see 'Lovely One'
Description : Another one of my tracks off my 1rst disc 'Music For Wimps And Nerds Vol 1'. This track was recorded with my band at the time with a TEAC 3340 in my father's basement. Sorry about the occasional drop outs as explained before. Most of these were carried around on an overplayed cassette for 20 years before re-mastering. Another song about a girl I worked with. If anyone's interested, you can read the track sheet with lyrics here
Description : The last track I recorded but first on my disc 'Music For Wimps And Nerds, Vol. 1, Boo-Hoo Classics. Recorded on my first 8 tr recording at Polymorph Studios in Temescal Oakland, CA. 1995
The beginning is my 'aural' art about growing up in my upstate NY upbringing which morphs into another girlfriend piece based on a comment from my friend at the time who forbade me to speak her name (Sheila) to him and thus became the 'S Word'
Description : Another great lyric of mine about the girl across the street. Done as a John Lennon solo tune. Written in '69 and recorded 'in the summer of '72' Thanks to my friends who played on it including the classic Bobby Lustgarden on guitar. One of my favs.......
Description : One of my first recordings, circa summer 1972. I'm playing piani, bass and vocals with my friend Vince on guitars and vocals. Sort of unintended reggae meets the Beatles. For my age, I still think the lyrics, while an inside joke are quite clever. I apologize for the quality. It's not easy to go from a Teac 2340 to cassette to DAT to mp3 over 36 years.
Description : Done at the same time as 'I Left It All Behind'. Same instrumentation. More of a darker love tune
Description : Made with a couple of friends of mine on the spot with a $100 Casio, Arp 2600 and guitar plus vocals in the mid '80s. We were trying to do the David Bowie thing. Written about local televangelists and lost love.
