Milkshake Daddy: Substitute Songwriter

About the Album:

Production notes: All songs recorded using GarageBand with help from Audacity. Instruments were piped though a Boss DR 880 (ironic as I didn’t use it for drums) and a Presonus Firebox. I use a Shure Beta 58 mic.

Inspirations: modern technology, social media, modern culture, Anime, geek speak, video gamers in Korea with fast internet connections, video games new and old, the moon, the future, Bleach (the main Aizen arc, not the filler crap), SakanaYasha the giant fish-man kaiju, Neon Genesis Evangeleon, punk rock, cow punk, Nova, tv shows about outerspace, cloud computing, the TWIT and TWIG podcasts, Nasa, JPL, 3D animations of planets, jazz, Gershwin, old public service films, my fans, and the RPM Challenge.

Here’s the songs! This album is FREE as in FREE BEER! You’re free to download, share, play it where ever you like, and remix it. You just can’t sell it.

Song Notes Listen
Cell Phone in the Pit

Genre:Punk rock!

My reaction to the fact that people now stand in front of bands taking photos and video with their cell phones instead of dancing.

The Plastic Colors of Summer

Genre: Pop Rock

There’s a movie called The Plastic Colors of Summer, but this song only shares the title. I wanted something chaotic and rhythmic, like summer can be.

Equipment: Gibson SG, moxMatrix iPad app, various noise making toys from Japan.

Lost the Fucking Manual

Genre: Pop Rock

You can’t read the fucking manual (RTFM) if you’ve lost the fucking manual (LTFM).

Equipment: microKorg, FunkBox iPad app, vocals, Schecter Bass

Kim Park Can’t Lose

Genre: Psychedelic Rock

Here’s the concept: no matter what video game you play – Star Craft, Halo, Brickbreaker – there’s always that dude who has the world-wide top score. This is the themesong for that dude.
