in 1996 Clinton signed the Telecommunication Act which completely eliminated the rules of how many channels or stations one entity could own. before 1996 large corporations controlled less than 65 radio stations....& now we have one company like Clear Channel who owns about 1200 of them which in more real world terms translates to 99.9% of the top 250 markets in the U.S. it's no wonder everything completely sucks now. now we get our "rock n roll" (only) from marginal American men in suits who have to buy their pussy & don't forget how much ugly loser guys like that just LOVE to have the Bowies of the world around. Thanks Bill ya fuckin' splotchy red bulbous-nosed douche.

now when you walk down the street you'll hear someone say "MTV sucks now" before you'll hear one word about what you read above. noone ever says that MTV really had no choice. they went from a commercial in the mid 80's that boasted "we play a wider variety of videos & more of them in a row than ever before...doodle doodle dee....wubba wubba wubbba" to having little to work with a little over a decade later because the corporations who came in & took over basically fucked their mission straight up the ass without vasoline. yeah maybe they DO suck but don't blame them. in other words if someone stabs you you don't get pissed at the nurse who stings the wound with the medicine you go after the fucker with the knife.

LOWRY MAYS Clear Channel CEO (1999) quote: "if anyone said we were in the radio business it wouldn't be someone from our company. we're not in the business of providing news & information. we're not in the business of providing well-researched music. we're simply in the business of selling our customer's products."

and this my friends is why you turn on any Clear Channel radio station & hear the same songs about 75% of the time.

now an early 80's D.I.Y. guy like Ian MacKaye looks like a prophet.  His independent label Dischord Records has moved over 700,000 copies of Minor Threat alone.  He never used radio & beyond that he has a loyal fanbase who does not buy into any of the corporate bullshit so it doesn't matter how the landscape changed.  It never existed to him.  Its movements are not much different than clouds passing by in the sky.  It is of little to no consequence to a guy like MacKaye.  Not to mention he has new people converted to his church every time another year goes by not to mention as things get worse & worse he looks more & more like SAINT.  Plus in "business" speak he never had to change his prices ONCE because "inflation" can't touch a bubble like that.

we can sum this all up by just going through the most telling music & recording industry figures that were happening at the same time "mp3" overtook "sex" as the most widely searched term, sites like Napster are in full swing, & the R.I.A.A. starts suing thousands of people for file sharing.  they hung themselves & cost a lot of people a lot of hopes, dreams, money, & the most important one of all: FUN & its long-lost companion COMMUNITY.

~ 2001 is the 1st year since 1966 that at least one major label release does not sell 5 million copies.

~ from 1999-2001 they released 25% less new music so people naturally started trolling the internet for music from the past.

~ at the same time CD prices rose another 10% reaching an all-time high.

~ they reduced the manufacturing of CD singles for those people who didn't want to buy their full (shitty) albums by 75%

~ AND they continued to treat the fans, the people who kept them in business, like garbage & assassinated thousands of those great little independent record stores we used to love like a favorite aunt or long lost friend.

all this while their livelihood is literally under attack & people can access millions of tracks online at any given time.

know what this all adds up to ???

MORONS

Occupy THAT bitches.

            :: SITE UPDATED ::  Nov 17 2017

●● new LPs & EPs are here ●●

what can i say = LISTEN TO THE SONGS.  push all the short attention span theater shit to the side and LISTEN. music is embedded all over this site.  let the albums & EPs play from start to finish.  they are not just collections of random songs. also my music is for that end of the night nightcap in headphones not background for the party.  i suggest you approach it that way & engage it in that setting and the rest is up to you.

 

if you are looking for predictable simpleton drivel meant to appease empty Ameri-con trash you are in the wrong place i assure you.  the bulk of your friends list on Facebook will help you out if that is the mirror you seek. click that red link now and get your worthless tacky ass out of here QUICKLY.

 

i seek no press.  this website is receiving traffic from 140+ countries every month through word-of-mouth only.  there's no Facebook or YouTube whoring.  besides the United States the traffic has been incredible from Germany, France, Japan, Russia, UK, Australia, Canada, China, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Poland, Hungary, Sweden, Finland, Chile, and The Netherlands.  i want to thank all of you especially along with everyone else for listening, visiting, and whatever else.

 

my previous releases before the ones linked above are as follows: Chapter One was released May 18th 2013.  the Mrs. Produkt EP was released March 2nd 2013 & Der Schnitt was released February 9th 2013.  please go purchase them & support independence. you can name your price.  if you're broke put in $0 and take it for free with no strings attached.  i do not want your email.  i do not give a fuck about your "like".  i do not want to contact you.  what i want is for you to LISTEN.  click on any album cover to show you where you can download them.  COOL ??????????

 

 

BOTTOM FEEDER: THE SOCIALITE was released December 15th 2012.  this was my 6th full length album in 2012.  10 new tracks.

and this ever-evolving collection of covers is always FREE. click her to show you where you can download it now.

 

 

music as an industry is going to continue to reside in the gutter until more of you start caring for it properly again.  it's so PURR-fect that the Ameri-con way has sold so many on the notion that it's pointless to drop $10 on music but don't worry about doing the same thing at McDonald's a few times a week for glorified dog food.  that's COMPLETELY normal.

 

for now i only deal with Bandcamp because unlike iTunes i can keep it donation based.  i also deal with Bandcamp because they are the coolest & best company selling digital music on the web right now and they are aiding the cause not hurting it like iTunes.  PERIOD.  Bandcamp will covert your payment from almost any currency imaginable and you can get better quality downloads from them as well. you're not just helping me you're helping so many others including the audience of any genre outside the pathetic and predictable mainstream industry that is as marginal and washed up as it has ever been.  i can not be more honest than that.

  

yes this site is 1st and foremost about my music but it is also about many of the other things that i love OR hate and anything else i feel like in between.  if you search through the menu you will find all of my (currently available) releases.  but you will also find some of my paintings & photography.

 

the Journals & Written Word links in the menu above are loaded with my writing.  i am constantly updating it as well as every other section of this site.

 

up above in this column check the date of the last update underneath my picture.  it will always be extremely current GUARANTEED.  as part of the audience i know music/band sites for the most part are PAINFULLY BORING, infrequently updated, & lacking content so i hope to present something much more interesting & extensive.  i guarantee that every day you return here you can/will find something new.

 

if you email me i'll answer.  it's a real simple process.  i respect people who participate not those who hide in their thinly veiled cyber corners playing their tired petty fame games.  to me there is absolutely zero mystique in that.  i'm a complete hermit by nature so 99% of you will most likely never get to know me in person anyway so here's a virtual part of me instead.  thank you for perusing.
