Branded

I mentioned for a second that I might not record the song Branded on Cactusman Versus the Blue Demon, Jeff Berlin immediately turned to me and informed me that the album, "Would sound strange without drums on it." In other words, if you don't record this song" I'm out of here!". I made the right decision.

The essential chaos, the human nexus of it, was Boris himself, Boris of the broken trucks and disconnected phones, of the lost capos of the songs scrolled feverishly on the backs of receipts smeared with motor oil and stashed in the tackle box with his harmonicas.

Cryptobiotic Dirtbags

Boris McCutcheon Jeff Berlin Steve Mayone

After the McCutcheon family uprooted from their modest off the grid bad roads situation and relocated to Albuquerque for new career purposes for Laura “her turn to shine“, we used to go out to Ojito Mesa with the kids and explore for entire day at a time. I swear to the crypto gods that we found an entire skeleton of a dinosaur once, and couldn’t relocate it later. The kids used to step on the crypto bio crust, and Laura would chide them for not being more careful . We would walk sometimes for a mile to avoid the bio crust, ”don’t bust the crust!”, she was the “Protector of the Cryptobiotic dirt“ I wrote the song as a joke while we were going around a big patch of Cryptobiotic dirt. Later the song stuck in the car on the way home. It was the first song I recorded on a DAW (on my own) with a decent vocal microphone that I bought a Grandma‘s music in Albuquerque. I believe I recorded the guitar and vocals into the one mic. I sent the files to Chris McGandy to play pedal steel. He sent me back what I call “porn steel”. The song was put on ice for many years until it was rediscovered by little Feebo, Jeff Berlin, the greatest drummer on earth and short dog, Steve Mayone, the greatest guitarist/producer on earth. Jeff recorded his drums with two overheads. Steve added a Credence flare with his electric guitar. It reminds me of the “loose” sounding rock band in that played on the porch in the movie “Sling Blade.”

And remember kids..”Don’t bust the crust!”

Voluptuous April! 

Riots of flowers, lilacs super blooming in the compound

Persian yellow roses arching into wild mustard pastels

There by the windrows of leaves and dirt berms, 

Under the cedars I startled them,

My first young lovers

As the…

A Poem After The Accident In China

 

Persimmon Tree in Shunyi                                                                          

 

The air is clear and good today. 

There is a gentle breeze in Beijing 

Inside the 5th Ring. 

My daughter left the doors ajar. 

“The temperature is perfect” she told me.

She went out for a…

Bad Accident

 

 

                              (Above: My knee looks like an angry gopher with an overbite)

After I told Jeffrey Berlin the story of my breaking of my kneecap he offered me a song about it in my own words. 

“ I knelt down in…

The wind is blowing like crazy outside. "The winds of change" I guess. 

The phones don't work. The tower is down or the messages are simply blown away?

The moving man is supposed to arrive at 10:30…
