Best Of The Lame Years, More MSC, More Tour Dates

BEST OF THE LAME YEARS

New compilation release out now: The Best Of The Lame Years.  The Lame Years was a 12 album, 179 song, series released monthly throughout 2013.  This comp is the best of the best culled from well over 7 hours of original music. I am very proud of this release and I consider it to be the crown jewel of the catalog.  A great starting point for new listeners. BOTLY now available via my bandcamp page:

MONDAY SINGLES CLUB

Every Monday a new digital 7" is released on my bandcamp page complete with a B-side.  This week (the 16th week) I put up Monday Singles Club v 16; Corporate Arms B/W Halted.  Corporate Arms is a collaboration with my friend John Hopkins.  Halted was recorded early in the morning after daylight savings time after a 24 hr shift at my job.  The solo performed on a random bottle that was lying around.  The previous weeks had a sitar song entitled "Oh Sister" and a grind banger called "Bowl Of Chili".
