about

This album came as a result of talks with Sean The Bastard (the I.C.B.M.s/Plonker) and a desire to revisit some of the I.C.B.M.s tunes with the idea of re-recording them. As I've been toiling away for the past year (or more) on a new album I thought putting out a two track digital single would be a great idea, and a good way to see how well this could work.

Well, after getting Sean's vocal tracks for "Side Kick" and recording "Ain't Dead Yet" I decided to expand this to an EP. Rounding it out is an old favourite of mine that somehow has never seen an album release "Nor 26" and so now it shall, with some slightly updated lyrics to mark the passage of ten years since I first wrote it. And finishing the whole thing off is "Lost Notes" something that came to me at 2am in a riff and words on a page, putting old thoughts back together. I dig it and hope you do as well.

Track Name: Ain't Dead Yet
Like Old Woody Guthrie Said "We Ain't Dead Yet!"
The times may have up and changed,
This Class War remains

See we've fought for living wages, safe conditions, and equal rights.
Fighting for the working class
Fighting for the working caste

United: We Stand
Divided: We Fall
Brother, Sisters get in gear
Sign your cards at the Union Hall

As Upton Sinclair once wrote "All art is propaganda"
All should have an equal say
not bow to corporate agendas

United: We Stand
Divided: We Fall
Brother, Sisters get in gear
Sign your cards at the Union Hall

See it through till the end, we've got the people on our side
we are the working class
we are the working caste
Track Name: Side Kick (feat. Sean The Bastard)
I had i dream i was a vigilante sidekick
my name is tim im a lesser known character
I had a dream i was a vigilante sidekick
fighting crime in the streets together

Down in Oakland off of west grand,
st joseph relief a poor program
A good place where good people get food,
help your fellow man is a good thing to do
Government agency said be afraid of me,
i shut your doors down it won't phase me
Wolverine came through left the agent for dead,
opened up the doors back up everyone was fed

Do not bill the abandoned buildings,
it's nice to sleep when you've got a ceiling.
Neighborhood watch said we gotta put a stop,
can't have people livin' for free call the cops.

Here comes the SWAT team, and the M-16,
shoot the walls in, destroy the building.
Wolverine was sad and it made him mad,
every single cop got a bullet in the head.
Track Name: Nor 26 (2016 Version)
I was twentyfive once, when I first wrote this song
I'm thirtysix now and won't be for long
though circumstances and time have changed
the words, the story, shall remain

spent fifteen years living it up
learning things to write about
trying to make it on my own
hidden inside whisky, fear, addiction, and love I've found my home.

but; Something tells me I wish we'd had
made better choices
Something tells me I wish I'd had
a stronger voice

Our lives crossed, for a time, many words were said
Drowned myself in the water of life to look for a way out
woke up in pain.. junkie sick
to find myself again_______

but; Something tells me I wish we'd had
made better choices
Something tells me I wish I'd had
a stronger voice

Those whisky drenched days of cigarettes and sin
not so long ago they won't try and creep in again
I find myself here, on the other side
Nor Twentysix but i'm making it through alive.
Track Name: Lost Notes
Life has got you down, don't dare and turn around
don't go out at night, when you're looking to pick fights.
Find some good friends looking to unwind
little bit of release with the ones who know you best

Lost notes tell the story
of the best years of our lives.
Lost notes tell the story
of the worst we have to hide.

Broke down the wrong way, mind plays tricks at night
how much can we endure, no end to pain in sight.
Lost in a crowd of people that we never knew
don't know where their from, only what to do.

Lost notes tell the story
of the best years of our lives.
Lost notes tell the story
of the worst we have to hide.

Lost notes tell the story
of the worst we have to hide.

Drive around for a bit just to pass the time
Later in passing I see someone with your smile
a lifetime behind us
No bitter thoughts left to think.


Lost notes tell the story
of the best years of our lives.
