Annual PAX East Single: Get to the Choppa!

It’s that time of year again and the good stuff is here! This years PAX East single is an upbeat singalong chock full of wisdom. If there’s one thing the 80’s taught us, besides “knowing is half the battle” and that cocaine turns your brains into tasty fried eggs…it’s that any obstacle can be overcome with the help of a gnarly helicopter. Look at the evidence: Airwolf, Rambo 2 & 3, Predator, Red Dawn, Magnum P.I., The A-Team, Blue Thunder, Die Hard and pretty much any other movie/show where people needed to save the day or be saved. The answer is always: “Get to the Choppa!!”

Confessional: Baseball

Fenway

It’s time to come clean, I love baseball. Yep…love it. Watch it damn near every day in season, take part in several fantasy leagues and proudly (well, somewhat proudly) wear a baseball cap nearly year round. While I realize that it’s wildly unpopular among the nerderati to take part in anything “sportsball” related, I just don’t give a fuck. While I’ve never been one to follow the crowd, I can’t help but find it incredibly tedious to have to defend my love of the game.
TL:DR- Jay loves baseball and is so excited for a new season, he recorded this: Read rest of story…

New Music! “A Very MisCast Christmas”


While I figured a couple Christmas tunes might be on the docket for this EP series, I didn’t expect it to land before Thanksgiving. But it’s here and it was a hell of a lot of fun recording it. Hope you enjoy ’em and that they bring a little rock to a drab holiday party. Get ’em here or on the side!

Stay hungry – J.

While I was out…

So I spent last week in a nearly internet free place for the first time in a very long time. The first few days were a struggle. Even though I knew it had no signal, I still picked up my phone and checked it. After a few days, I forgot about it and enjoyed the solitude that only north western Maine can provide.

WHAT IF?! Tom Waits auditioned for Journey!?

Yes…like the great Uatu, we too sometimes wonder, “What if?!”….in 2007 when Journey was in need of a new lead singer after the departure of Steve Augeri, Neal Schon never found footage on youtube of Arnel Pineda crushing Journey tunes with The Zoo…but instead held an open audition, where a dark figure in a tattered hat shambled in, clutching a road weary Martin acoustic and sat down at the mic…

New cover, bad timing

This one has been kicking around the toolbox for a while and was only (finally) recorded about a month ago with the intention of throwing it up on the site for free as part of my on-going girl pop one-take cover series. I hadn’t really got around to it and then the news hit last night. I’m not going to go on about Whitney Houston’s passing or about her influence on me, but I will say this: If you listened to music in the 80’s, there is no way you were not at the very least bobbing your head to her music…even if the immense talent blasting from your boombox wasn’t the focus.

About a song…

Working in the studio to wrap up a few new songs as well as a few covers (and re-makes, announcement soon). We’ve recruited some help in the form of the incredibly talented Mikey B to assist with the recording process and to do a little producing. As we’ve been working together, I’ve found myself explaining (sometimes in great detail) how some of these songs came to be. It’s got me thinking that I should share some of that here. I always enjoy “looking behind the curtain”, so here goes nothing.
