There is stuff here from me solo using loops and multi-tracks for drums and playing/singing all else, collaborations done over the internet as *Vlayman* or in virtual bands such as *Geronimo Cowboys*, *Los Collaberos*, *Untogether*, *The Hungry Drunx*, and stuff from my real-life ex-band, *The Friday Project*, *The Virtual Planet Band* and for the 20th of the month challenge, and jams. I am currently in a band going by "LG&M", and some of that stuff may make it's way here ...
Why this name?
School nick-name, and the Marshall service insists I use a alias.
Do you play live?
I do play live, an' preferably semi-comatose, getting to the the latter part being what I like most. Special moments are when groupies and fuffers come back stage with endorsers and dealers, and I get freebies all around.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gets my stuff out there, anywhat ... Plus, you can hear absolute shite for free, as well as this kinda shite here.
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.
Band History:
Loose butt tight. I started on guitar in the 6th grade, and I expect I'll still be playing it when I graduate the 8th.
Your influences?
I always wanted to be Keef, an' then I learned to write (sorta). Someday, I might learn how to sing and play. Also, Lanegan, Cohen, R. Thompson, F. Thompson, Wynn, Reznor, Homme, Hags, Shaver, Scofield, Flea, Jaco, Sandman, Ambel, Nolen, Corgan, Slovak, O'Brien, Baird, Hodges, Gill, JPJ, Page, Simonon, Strummer, M. Jones, S. Jones, Roback, the Reids, R. Butler, McCullogh & Sergeant, Burgess ...
Favorite spot?
