Driving and Remembering Driving

I got a request for a copy of Driving and Remembering Driving, a four-track recorded album I made pre-Rifle Nice.

Here you go, full album as mp3’s:

Rifle Nice (the album)

Rifle Nice released our self-titled full-length in November 2006 and disbanded soon after, leaving our labor of love fully formed and entirely unpromoted.

I am proud of the years of work that went into this album. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Bill Moriarty (whose site I recently built in Drupal). Playing on it are ex-Rifle Nicers Steve Heise, Jim Lewis, Alicia Lewcarth, Rory Connell, Ben Daniels and myself.

I have plenty of beautifully-designed CDs remaining and am happy to mail you one if you contact me and include your address. But for the first time I am now releasing the full album as a free download. Please download and enjoy.

Song: A Thought

See also: Unreleased Songs

‘A Thought’ is my current favorite of all my songs. I know I have one friend who agrees, so I’ll share the full lyrics.

A year’s residual thoughts are filling my living room.
The shape they take describes my future,
and my mind wanders around the first floor of its house,
as my fixations take form and float about.

Song: Move Closer to what Deaner was Talking About

“Move Closer to What Deaner was Talking About” is Rifle Nice’s ‘mashup’ of the Philadelphia WPVI “Action News” theme and Ween’s “What Deaner Was Talkin’ About” which was created for the Plain Parade compilation of Philly bands covering other Philly bands.

Song: Nervous Guy

Well, I’m bringing this ‘classic’ ‘music video’ back to the spotlight now that I have a new site.

“Nervous Guy” is an old song of mine which is based on a time in my life just after college when I spent a lot of time by myself in a cemetery almost every day.

Unreleased Songs

Yesterday I received the nicest possible email from one Mr Bob King, the best fan a song-writer could hope to have. Bob took the time to go in-depth into my old songs, commenting on them on a level I would have never thought achievable and blowing up my creative vacuum on a level matched only by my ex-bandmate Rory Connell.
