Ten years ago Bodycocktail had it's one and only Christmas hit, "I've Got a Salty Lunker Grub for You This Christmas" which is now available online to add cheer to the holidays in our own special way.
Band/artist history
I started Bodycocktail as my solo spin-off of Grandbrother. I had gotten into doing vocals and occasional lyrics with Grandbrother and after I bought my first electronic instrument, an Ensoniq Mirage sampling keyboard, I was inspired to start doing songs. This would be in 1993, but my earliest songs appear on the 1984 Zanstones "Subtle Art of Puddle Pushing" release. I had been writing potential lyrics long before this, some of which I used later in Bodycocktail. I started the band with some help of my friend Bobby Douglas (drums) and Archie "Chillson" Wilson (guitar) and we even played out live perhaps half a dozen times in 1993 and 1994. Soon it became a solo project and I even did a few solo live shows. The Bodycocktail releases "Enlivened Circumstances" & "Solo Live Blisstones at Sparks" document some of these live actions. Peak studio years, with over 20 releases, include 1996, 2004 and this year.

Your musical influences
1977-1983 new wave
What equipment do you use?
Children and toy keyboards, Ensoniq Mirage, accordians, stringed instruments, wind instruments and non-instruments.
Anything else?
the music's intention is to have the effect of a nice cocktail rolling over your mind. The song titles have numbers which reference the release number first, followed by a dot then the track number.
