The Search Continues

…for good, new, modern alternative rock bands that have something to say. That’s not asking too much, is it?


Over the weekend, I spent the better part of Sunday morning listening to Spotify and SoundCloud, as well as various indie radio stations. What I’m looking for is really tough to find I guess.

Here’s an example:


And another:


I’ll continue my search… and post a string of vids/bands at some point. Feel free to point me in the direction of anyone you currently dig, and think fits the bill. High energy, grunge, guitar oriented, vocals melodic… music on fire!

Rock on you undiscovered, high energy (with something to say) musicians!

Two Points of Light

…that always seem to bring me anywhere but home.


“The night air wraps around me; smoke from my pipe becomes a ghost dance and I am once again threaded into an earlier stitch; I’m transported back to a place where my kids are still young, and the world is on fire.” – Ray

This was the inspiration for the Blabpipe ep ‘6 Pack‘. My kids, and the endless waves of fond memories were my muse. Even the track Hot Chocolate found it’s name (if not it’s final destination) in the cold New England mornings that now seem so distant.

There was a time when music mattered. There was a time when melodies fit the words, and a compilation of tunes could bring you where you needed to go.

It’s by no accident that Blabpipe can deliver you a viable ghost dance or introduce you to a Buffalo Bullfrog… it’s by complete design.

In Voyeur, we see the man standing just left of center, and in truth I can still see him, can you? Writing on the Wall gives us a voice… can you hear it now? Surviving is what wells up inside us when faced with impossible odds, and Rather be Cool than Hip accurately describes the world we now live in. I’ve see the Black Cat… and it has often crossed my path.

I often times wonder… Let’s Pretend… is that for me or for you? Fold Me is about…well here, see for yourself:

There was a time when music mattered.

Rock on most fortunate!

…and the power to control your own future.


I once believed as you do now, but that was a very long time ago. The winding road that leads into the wilderness; the green mile that fades into the distant horizon. At times, we all swagger, we all falter, and we all eventually rest. There can be no argument, no Coup d’etat – not for this.

One step into the future. Do you want to see it, the next frame in the camera? Would you like to taste it, sitting quietly for just a moment on your tongue, and feel the rhythm deep inside you move with the promise of a better tomorrow?

The future isn’t written, it’s discovered one step at a time.


Can you hear me now?

Rock on Kismet! The future isn’t written, it’s discovered one step at a time.

Black Cat

This was a song we wrote a while back. It’s changed a bit through the years, but for the better I think.

The video is a sorta cat hide n go seek.


Rock on Black Cat!
