Northside 05:06
You come on softly as a spring night Into honeysuckle silence, blue-white moonlight And the paper lanterns dim behind us Strolling down the driveway 'round the block you guide us Past the Northside gates, the playground swings Fence cut down so we slip in Tudor neighborhood I don't belong here But I can't help following Your windswept hair and oversized jeans Your laughter at the stuff nobody else found funny And our hands so close they could be touching Yeah, but I've already done enough trespassing This may be the one and only time Watch you like I'm going blind Padding barefoot on the pebbled pavement Like it's cool sea foam or silky sand Ten years nigh Standing by Catch my eye You'll see why There's a hole in my life where you should be Some asshole by your side where I should be Don't waste your time on a dream Of some boy who's never seen You barefoot on the Northside playground

I can see us in the setting sun The sidewalks here go on and on And now I walk them all alone Looking for... I don't know Every pool of light I stumble through Makes my insides burn with deja vu But no streetlight shines bright as you I'm stepping on my shadow. We walked until this place was home The sidewalks here go on and on We'd float above them hand in hand and Ignore the world below But all I touch comes crashing down Now I miss you as much as I hate this town But I stop my feet from touching ground By stepping on my shadow. Where are you? Where are you tonight? Where are you tonight? Every car that passes sighs this song And the sidewalks here go on and on I could walk till I forget the words But the melody will never go I'm midnight cold and asphalt black I'm empty as a sidewalk crack And I keep you always at my back I'm stepping on my shadow.

Where Soars the Silver Surfer? Where soars the Silver Surfer? Things never become completely black Love is all infinite and all unknown And where the Silver Surfer soars He always soars there alone And where soars the Silver Surfer When the world could be at his feet? His future still a mystery And his answers incomplete And where soars the Silver Surfer When we need his help the most? I don't know I only think about her these days And wonder why Love ain't the power Supreme

about

2020 wasn’t good for much, but being homebound did allow me to sort through 30 years of old recordings, and unarchive tons of shelved and incomplete material.

And then finish that shit!

I am not really interested in doing “albums” anymore… holding music back until a dozen arbitrarily-linked songs are mixed and mastered and the stars and planets align. But at the same time, “singles” are kind of boring and “EPs” demand some degree of cohesion, and I don’t want to be boxed in like that. So here is what I offer you: THREE-PACKS

Remember those randomly-bagged multipacks of comic books they used to sell in toy and drug stores? You wouldn’t be able to see what was inside until you tore open the plastic, and the comics might be brand new or fifteen years old… it was just whatever happened to be laying around when they bundled it up. There was no thematic connection, no rhyme or reason to the collection, and one bag could even contain books from both Marvel AND DC. I was introduced to so many fun stories that way, and that is how I am going to introduce (or reintroduce) you to all of these songs.

This three-pack includes “Northside” (2011), “‘Stepping On My Shadow” (1996) and “Where Soars The Silver Surfer?” (1995), plus a bonus acoustic mix of "Northside" - all recently completed using a combination of the original recordings and new material. You can read more about each track if you click through to its page.

I’m not promising these three-packs in any regularly-scheduled fashion… and I’m not going to tell you about them in advance. When I feel like one is ready, it will just appear. They may have Skyscape/Hanslick Rebellion/Collider songs on them. All of my records from the past that are not currently available digitally will be represented, as well as material you have never heard, including brand-new stuff. But as far as I’m concerned, all of this music is new to most of the universe - and these are fresh versions of everything anyway, so I hope that in a way it will also be new to you.

Let’s have some fun <3
