Lacking any real musical talent, I decided to use Punk-o-Matic to create some generic punk backgrounds to the various songs I had written. Recorded at low quality through a computer microphone, the songs are not musical masterpieces but the lyrics are still strong. Give it a listen, you might enjoy it.
In about a year I've managed to record almost 75 songs. Go figure.
The first nine songs I recorded were put in a zip file and distributed to various friends under the title "12 Minutes of Eternal Optimism". All the songs were recorded at very low quality and generally they were filled with mistakes. The best song on there was probably Sunflower Seed (if you listen closely during the "drum solo" you can hear my mom say something at the end of it).
I added a few more songs to 12 Minutes and released another zip file album called The Past, The Present and The Future. The best songs on here is probably Feeling Small and The Fall of Them All.
The next "album" I made over the Summer of 2004 was called "Freedom of Information". The recording quality improved slightly for these songs, but it was still pretty bad. My favorites on the album are Anxious, Flicker, Freedom of Information and Theme Dan Park. Emo Song isn't terrible either.
By the end of the summer I had actually taken the time to buy a new microphone and figured out a way to rip music from Punk-O-Matic better. So, the songs on "George Bush Hates This Album", finished in late summer 2004, were of much higher quality. The song writing generally improved in consistancy, too. By far the best song on this album is Nightmarish. Other good songs include George Bush Hates This Song, Tale of the Suicide Bomber and Empty Words.
The next "album" I made was titled Extinction. It was recorded in fall and winter of 2004-2005. It included several remakes of earlier songs. There are several good songs on this album, including Extinction, Sunflower Seed (Version 2), Flicker (Verison 2), It's Equality, Stupid and Food Machine.
As of Summer 2005 I am currently working on the new album called "Military Complex". So far, the best song off of that one is Exlcusion Principle.
It would help if I had a real band who played real instruments.
Punk: Bad Religion, Propagandhi, Anti-Flag, Green Day, Operation Ivy, Catch 22, etc.
