Musing, mutterings and music: the blog

Showtime! First of 2024 

Stick those new year's resolutions firmly in your back pocket and bring 'em out to Red Bird Live on Friday January 12th!

The Bokonons are kicking off the new year by launching a brand new LP called ‘Friday Night Sessions’. If you dug ‘Pot Of Gold’, you'll definitely be into this one as Jeff Meleras continues his Americana songwriting prowess and picks up right where POG left off.  

As well as playing guitar for Jeff & The Bokonons, I'll be opening the show as well. What? I know….double dutying!

Bandcamp Friday: Jenny Said See You Saturday Night 

The Saturday Night companion piece to "Jenny":

For this Bandcamp Friday I revisited one of my songs and gave it the Saturday Night version it deserves. 

If you enjoy, all dollars you send my way for this one today will be donated to CKCU, The Mighty 93.1.  

Our community radio station is having its funding drive and CKCU has been a huge supporter of indie music and our community. 

And its yearly funding drive is critical for survival.

Thanks for listening and for donating if you can.


PS: I'm playing a show at Irene's in Ottawa on Nov 18th. Tickets here:

Bandcamp Friday: Lukewarm baths and Hallowe'en dreaming 

I'm kicking off the creepy season with a stripped down version of a song I wrote for Expanda Fuzz a few years back. 

It's a twisted tribute to The Lost Boys called ‘Psychopaths In Lukewarm Baths’, originally from the Efuzz LP ‘Bleuets’

I will be writing about these lyrics on my Substack in the coming days, so if you're interested, subscribe here:


And speaking of Efuzz…we're back!

Halloween is a favourite around the Las Vanier Haus of Fuzz, so before we picked out the pumpkins, we plugged in a few fuzz pedals and went to work on a new love letter to the season. 

It’s Always Hallowe'en Inside My Head' is a “a dreamy damnation of those lovesick vampires and ghosts inside our heads”. 

I know, right? 

Enjoy and happy Bandcamp Friday indie music hunting, everyone.
