It’s a new year! 2008 was seriously the worst year of my life, so I step into ’09 with open arms. For 2009 you should expect: Lots of shows, a new band (or two), new members of Ghoul, a new sound for Ghoul, new music videos (maybe a DVD), Dog Buys Pistol LP on Sub-Bombin’ Records and lots of EP’s!
It’s been a minute! Hope everyone out there had some wonderful holidaZzze. I got a few new toys I’ll be debuting at the next couple of shows!
Well the Proctors Sensory Overload show on December 19th was ruined of course by the first giant snowstorm of the year. Only bands to attend were Grab Ass Cowboys and Bad Costume. I was seriously fucking bummed about this.. but the possibility of a rematch at Proctors is very high!
check out Bad Costume rocking away:
I played a show at Hotshots on 12/22 with Pete Pluto and Firefighter Font. Very awesome show, check out some pics courtesy of Samantha Brie:
got some upcoming shows.. The 17th at Kings Tavern with my noise band If Yes, Then No.. joining us so far is Bad Costume. Also Andrew Hassenger asked me if I’d play a festival he’s throwing at The Art Center in Saratoga Springs on May 30th. It’s going to be a 10 hour festival showcasing solo musicians in the capitol district area. Sounds exciting!
Working on a new EP.. all new material..

December 19th I’ll be performing at Proctors in the GE Theatre along side my good friends Bone Parade and the Grab Ass Cowboys. More info & artists TBA! It’s going to be pretty crazy. Show starts at 5:00 PM.
I am currently featured in the art exhibit “Band Posters & Music Packaging” at the Upstate Artists Guild in the Featured Artists Room from now until December 26th. Two CD’s of mine are featured on display as well as in the listening station. The first is my latest self released EP “Nice New Shoes, Samurai!“, the second is for my group If Yes, Then No’s debut EP “The New Killer”. Also included in the exhibit is a hand made poster for the October 9th show with Grab Ass Cowboys, Worlds of Shit, Boar and Make Believe Bombs. Many thanks to Jason Cosco!

Ah Thanksgiving.. that can only mean I’m full of bubbles and tofurkey as I type this little update.
First Jason Cosco just put up a full video of me & Asa Morris’ noise battle at the Upstate Artists Guild in Albany, which you can view below. The jam is certainly awesome. We get into quite a groove at times.
Part 1: (9:51)
Part 2: (6:47)
I’ve got quite a few shows coming up to end 2008, although most are TBA. December 22nd at Hotshots is a definite though is. So far it’s Ghoul & The Valley Ghosts from Michigan with more TBA.
The house party basement show with Audibel & Samuel Yager (Tone Pony/Birthdays) was pretty sweet. Me & Samuel played together and did two improv sets of noisy electro. It was pretty awesome and maybe we’ll do some more in the future.
This Saturday I’ll be hitting up Aimie’s Dinner & a Movie in Glens Falls for the Mathematicians debuting their long awaited DVD “Transdimensional Odyssey of Doom“. It’s $15, but everyone will receive a free copy of the DVD.
“Dog Buys Pistol” is about 90% finished. I’ve also started work on a new project and new direction I’d like to take the Ghoul.. exciting.

Holy hell, is it really already November? Yesterday was my first time voting, and I feel like I won! Congrats to Obama!
The build up to Halloween was much better than the actual day. It came and went in a flash like always. We drove up to Albany to catch Beware! the Other Head of Science’s set, which was of course awesome (nice Misfits cover).
My “Do the Fright Thing” compilation actually happened and was very well recieved! I’d love to keep these guys going every year, so we’ll see what happens. I promoted the hell out of that thing and if you heard it, I hope you enjoyed it.
To promote the compilation, I pieced together a music video for my featured song “Satanic Lunch”. The footage is very dated (is that.. Fetish??) but fits the song very nicely. You can check it out here:
The day after Halloween show with Firefighter Font was pretty rough. The system is completely ruined, so.. it looks like it might’ve been one of the last Kings Tavern shows. Despite coming out of one speaker (which was shot by the way) my set was pretty well recieved in all it’s lofi glory.
As for November-December and onwards I have no shows scheduled.. I will be putting the finishing touches to “Dog Buys Pistol” and then taking the Ghoul into a completely different direction.
I’ve been toying with the idea of releasing a Ghoul Poon DVD to coincide with the release of “Dog Buys Pistol”. Features would include all of my music videos to date, a couple of live performances and a collection of my short films. The DVD itself would be self released like all my CD’s, probably in my normal paper sleeve fashion, and sold for $2-5. Exciting!
