The Cheese Stands Alone, now on Bandcamp

As of today, all of the music I've recorded and "released" can be found at the Gedankenband Bandcamp site. The last album to move over, The Cheese Stands Alone, is now available there. As with the others it's "pay what you like", from zero on up.

This blog was originally started as a place to host TCSA back in 2009. I've rerouted all the links to the songs to the relevant Bandcamp ones. However, since the blog has evolved into a place I put recordings of cover songs, demo bits, new rerecordings, and poetry during National Poetry Writing Month, all of which I plan to continue.

Thank you for reading (even whoever is reading the element poetry from Russia), and enjoy!

What's Her Name?

It's been a little while since I picked up the guitar, and I was having so much fun I figured I'd bash something out.  So here's an oldie, dating all the way back to December 1993: "What's Her Name?"  I think it used to be "What's-her-name", which is probably a more accurate portrayal of the attitude in the song.

This was never played by any bands I was in, and it was written in a bit of a period empty of band songs-- the infamous "Taking Matters" came three months later, and the previous band song I'd written was "Whenever She Calls My Name", nearly a year before.  As with some of the other songs written at the time, though, this did make its way onto one of the albums, appearing on 2005's Do Not Tip Or Rock as track 6.

I honestly don't remember who I had in mind, if anyone, when I wrote this.  But I've always liked it a lot.

To reiterate:
