Musical background, desolate corporate future. I record music at home in the spirit of existential protest.
My musical influences incude: Frank Zappa, Primus, Al diMeola, Phish, Hendrix, Santana, Grateful Dead, Bela Fleck, Crash Test Dummies, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Joe Satriani, King's X, the Police, Nine Inch Nails, Steve Vai, 80s metal not including glam rockers. Pop music is the decaying reverb that follows the thundercrack of inspiration.
My new music, what I've done since putting together my home studio in Spring of '02, is posted in the Member's Music section, in the Rock (Pro member) and Intrumental (Pro member) sections. A link to my old music '90-'95 is in the Rock section, Standard Members side.
