ONGOING AND UNFINISHED, 2002-Present
In 2002, I opened Claustrophobia Sound Studio. Finally, I had a professional recording studio all to myself. Except for one small problem: in order to pay the rent and stay in business, I had to take on whatever projects I could find, whenever, without regard for whether or not I liked the music. For about ten years, I ran studios in Berlin, and being in the business swallowed up almost every second of every day; I only rarely had a spare moment to make my own music, and when I did have time to myself, I spent it as far from the studio as I could. Still, there were a few isolated creative flurries. I planned to create another alter ego, this time a certain "Preacher Pickett" (see the film "The Harder They Come" to understand where he got his name), a charismatic priest who preaches atheism and anarchy, and now and then there's been a song to record under my own name. I've also played in a few cover bands- the Threebones come to mind- but I can't upload covers here, 'cuz I ain't got the rights.
