Tonight we have a very loud, raw piece, aiming very squarely at early 90s grunge. There’s nothing but bass, drums, guitar and voice, and there’s a grand total of four chords used. It didn’t require a whole lot of ability to either write or play, but it was fun.
Tonight’s one has the distinction of being probably the quickest I’ve done since I started – it only took 4 hours. Most of the reason for that is that it’s not very imaginative, and the performances are pretty rough. But that kind of suits it.
It’s lazy, but loud. Very […]

No, I’m not skipping 13 due to superstition – I did actually do a 13 – over the course of a couple of days, due to being too tired to put in a full night’s work – but it needs about another hour’s work to make it presentable, and I figured […]

I think it’s probably one […]
This one kind of morphed quite a bit. It was originally going to be an industrial piece – but I guess it was just a little too far out of my comfort zone, so it ended up turning into something a little more my style.
Another attempt at lyrics and […]
(You see I’ve given up pretending it’s three hours – though even Tuesday is in doubt this time).
Well….this one was a marathon effort – finally finished after 8 hours of effort….partially because I was silly enough to write lyrics and sing.
It’s a blues based hard rock piece […]
I should probably come up with a better name for this – it’s a pretty boring name as it is, and it doesn’t look like I’ll ever manage it in three hours anyway ;)
Tonight’s piece took just over five hours to produce.
Last week I promised they wouldn’t all […]
