peace :-) hope you're well....i'd like to invite you to come hang out with my band Severed Tether on Saturday, Sept 21st at Gallery Cabaret. we're playing with Chicago legends Bushoong and we're really excited! details are below. hope to see you there. bless!
Thanks for the interest in the songs man. What you heard were rough drafts. I hope to have them mastered and ready within the next few months. Most likely I'll have them available for full album or individual downloads on bandcamp.com. Will have CD's well as .
I was born in the Windy City but I lived in about 6 other cities as a kid, so I'm just "from America" more or less, not any 1 place.
I have been pretty burnt out over the past few years due to my annoying panic disorder, (which I'm on SSDI for). For more on that look at my blog at the bottom here. Unfortunately due to this same reason I haven't played out live in years.
In some circles my past reputation was an annoying "streetpunk" knucklehead, but that was years ago. I was usually just getting people off my back anyway and trying not to be bullied around, but people hate black rockers. Whatever the case without those vices, I'm basically friendly and cynical.
I have been in a few bands in my time including The HATERZ (vocals & sometimes drums), Watusi Death (programming & guitar), X-Patriot (solo project), Jahni Omen (rap solo project), The Holy Whores (rhythm guitar), Contra (guitar), Crack 44 (bass guitar), The Mascots (bass guitar), Voodoo Cyclops (rapping), & The Fuck Farts (guitar & vocals)
The Haterz, Pure Hell, Fishbone, Bad Brains, Stone Vengeance, GBH, Fear, The Plasmatics, DeVo, Billy Idol, The Scorpions, Discharge, Kaaos, Vice Squad, Fishbone, The Misfits, Unsane, Watusi Death, Zapp and Roger, The Residents, Three Six Mafia (old underground), Skid Row, Sun-Ra, Lordi, Carcass, Scorpions, Operation Ivy, In Our Defense, Twisted Cross, Nihilist, X-Ray Spex, Zounds, UK Subs, Total Chaos, 10-96, Conflict, Chaotic Alliance, Zounds
...I'm sure I forgot some "favorite" bands but when you like so many bands it gets a little hazy.
Afropunk, Night Children, Shaun Of The Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Night Of The Living Dead, Return of the Living Dead, Rumble In The Bronx, South Bronx Heroes, The Decline of Western Civilization, Hot Shots: Part Duex, UK/DK, The Warriors, The Human Tornado, Another State Of Mind, I Am Legend, Marvel comics movies, camp, and horror movies in general.
Anything by Octavia Butler, You've Got Nothing Coming, The Outsiders, The Watchmen, Please Kill Me, and some random graphic novels
Comics, music magazines.
Favorite TV shows:
I barely watch any shows, just a few on Netflix.
Taken since I was 21 years old.
Haven't wanted kids since I was about 7 years old, and I never had any.
