SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Drums, Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar.
Mainly guitar player, more-than-decent drummer (can handle odd time sigs), released a cd "Jack Torn" 2006, got some good reviews on Garageband, when it was still there. Age seems to have no influence on stopping my drive to continue to play. Like to meet some like minded players who are through with biochemical experiments and want to do a steady light rehearsal schedule to keep a good band going in their life. Good covers and work into original stuff. You can hear my mix of "space blues" and experimental rock on this site, as well as Grimydiner. The tunes on this site are pretty rough production, "Blues Deluxe" and "Taking My Time" are just jams, git-playing samples. Never have been much of a singer but I give it a go.

Blueline Track number: 1 Year: 2005 Album: The Wierd, The War, and The Blues Genre: Other
Blues rock with a jazzy feel, all about riding the LA Metrolink. This track got a song-of-the-day on Garageband.com. A good example of my style of vocals (I am NOT a "singer"!)
Ain't It Grand
Ain't It Grand Track number: 2 Year: 2005 Album: The Wierd, The War, and the Blues Genre: Alternative
A fairly heavy guitar thing with a what-the-hell 11/4 guitar refrain. And a good little slide jam at the end. A profile of Modern Frustration.
When Johnny Comes Marching Home
When Johnny Comes Marching Home Track number: 3 Year: 2005 Album: The Wierd, The War, and the Blues Genre: Other
An extremely experimental-rock version of the traditional Civil War hit. Inspired by our debacle in Iraq. Don't get me started. Eerie and powerful.

just a blues/rock jam
Takin' My Time
Takin' My Time Year: 2007 Genre: Blues
