Im Your Carnivore
Thanks for taking out the time to listen to these recordings. Scheduled for release in 1996, these tunes are finally available for the first time. I am proud to say, although this collection of songs has been sitting around for over ten years, still sound as fresh as the day they were recorded. Considering myself lucky to have come from a family of talented musicians and playing with guitars since I could stand, it is only natural that I've continued to write songs and play shows throughout the adult years of my life. With this lifetime of experience, I can genuinely say that these songs are real and come from the heart of the true Rock 'n' Roll adventure. Playing live music and recording since high school, I have had the honor to share the stage with legends such as Ian Hunter & Mick Ronson, Johnny Thunders, The Violent Femmes and Willy DeVille. But my most memorable shows are the gigs during The Scarecrows days, with guitarist Marc Ford and his wife Kirsten by my side. My Southern California band experience includes playing guitar and singing with The Scarecrows, Hard as Nails Cheap as Dirt, Shake Baby Shake, Supernaturals, Stiff Richards and The Put-Ons. Included on this CD are out-takes, demos and lost gems recorded at studios throughout LA and Orange County from 1993-1999. Most songs were recorded by Craig McLowski and Mark Dutton at Eleven Music, mixed by James Bennett and myself at Room 222. All other songs were recorded by Corey Gash at Shag Studios, Ed Korengo at A&M Studios, Chuck Ferry at Boulevard Sound and at Dominion Sound.
