There is demo stuff here from me solo using loops and multi-tracks for drums and playing/singing all else, collaborations done over the internet, mebbe some occasional live band or live jam stuff, posted as it's done so some is mebbe a little raw ... look for me at b*ndc*mp under "Vlayman" for higher-res files and complete albums.
Why this name?
School nick-name, tautly tattoo'd on my 'taint.
Do you play live?
I try to avoid playing between reincarnations, I like to get out and jam, but puke at the thought of bein' inna cover band. I don't believe in "special moments", except when I find that last set of strings or jar of olives I need. Or the last skinny drunk girl in the bar ...
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I am not personally interested in the "music industry"; I just like to make noise, and I vastly prefer *.wav and FLAC.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Bring 'em on; I been waiting a long time. Hell, I'll sign with yer moms, if I haven't already.
