There’s a band I used to know and this is a show they did once :) I miss their music intensely but am lucky enough to know these people in real life and wish them all the best in their musical and other endeavors. Check them out, I will be posting small bits here and […]


We visited our state capitol yesterday. We came to Des Moines to see Electric Six, an amazing band from Detroit that travels the world and yet comes to a tiny bar in the middle of Iowa. I got to meet Dick Valentine again and he gave me a signature and photo and was such a […]


I really miss the OLD Reverb but I like Spicoli’s and the Reverb Rock Garden just fine. Here are pictures from the past, The Sudden Change (later The Space Natives) were my favorite local band… possibly because I knew all the members and they rocked with a funky style :D Wish those guys would get […]


I am not really that into the 80s. I was born in them (1986) and remember a few choice items, phrases, fads and facts from them but things remain pretty blurry. I figured since I like to make lists anyway I would start with something some people usually have an opinion on. If you love […]


I will post more of these as I record more audio and compile more sources. Hopefully this one will not be blocked for copyright reasons.

I wrote a series of three poems while listening to music from the latter. Please feel free to comment or add your own poems (they can take […]

Music videos are short enough to have an impact yet long enough to allow for the construction of a […]

We had an old school recording session the other day on this nifty Panasonic tape recorder while waiting to get ProTools up and working. These shall be the B-sides of the Beat-Less. We are, after all, BEAT-LESS STUDIOS! I am the sometimes singer, drummer, videographer, and lyricist of a band which is yet to be […]


Saw this comment on a White Stripes video and fell in love with it… What bands have you lost? They can live on forever as long as we are still listening :)
