I realized i should perhaps talk about the comic series i have been working on for the past ten years. It will culminate in the epic graphic novel ‘Hank Pine and Lily Fawn: Dusted’ to be completed in the fall.
To celebrate the completion of this story arc, ‘The Road to New Orleans’ the plan is for a Hank and Lily collection of the 7 issues and their soundtrack albums all in one tidy, slick package. Of course ‘Dusted’ will have its own album, and will be a collection of some of our most popular unreleased songs, as well as a full set of new, avant-garde noise-rock anthems.
All very exciting, and worth mentioning.
A home recording complete with laughing and heckling in the background. Why did we pick this song to record first? Because the chorus is the word ‘balls’ over n over. Easiest choice ever made!
I was recently commissioned to write a musical with award-winning playwright Jacob Richmond. I thought it might be nice to post some of the demos here so you can get a feel for what a great show this will be. Puppets, death, Hell, Revenge, Love, Beauty and did I mention puppets? A family show.
I will post more songs closer to the big reveal at
Caravan Farm Theatre in Armstrong, BC.
Apparently there is video of this show somewhere, but for now, some pictures. Just shake your phone or computer and play one of the songs i guess…
Thank you to my beautiful back-up singers, Megan Boddy, Rachelle Reath, Kelly Hudson, my lap-steel player Marco Yuri Bozenich and to Nick Lyons and co. for putting on the event.
The magazine Analogue is launching with an article on Late Night Spirituals, as well as a cassette mix-tape including some of the tracks, on Dec. 1st at the Copper Owl. Pictures to follow.
The shit hot band will include 3 back-up singers (Kelly Hudson, Rachelle Reath and Megan Boddy) and Marcu Yuri Bozencih on lapsteel guitar.
Come celebrate the tangible. Come with some vague ideas and leave with smellier and heavier clothes.
