Featured Songs

S'cool Days

Recorded in 1975 and released in England to rave reviews, ‘S’cool Days’ still sounds vital to this day. A tribute to such 60s bands as the Who, Easybeats, and Kinks, the song is a teen anthem, a testimonial to unbridled youth. (Power Exchange PX-247)

Listen to S'cool Days

Run for the Sun

This pop tune is a lively takeoff on 60s surf music, a Mick Ronson production on which he performs backing vocals. (demo)

Nothing Works Like Time

I wrote this song shortly after my best friend died at the age of 34. It's what I wanted to say to the people who loved him as well as to myself. The vocal on this demo is "shaky," but the sentiment is real.

Love Like A Hammer

This catchy tune was released as a single in Europe. Pop-driven with a reggae feel, the message is clearly tongue-in-cheek, a parody of sexual roles and stereotypes. (A&M SP - 4828)

Listen to Love Like A Hammer

On A Line

Melodic country-tinged pop, this song was the flip side of S'cool Days and one of my few collaborations. (Power Exchange PX-247)

Listen to On A Line

Some Kind Of Heaven

The "softer" side of Scum Heaven; same message, though. This demo is also slightly updated lyrically, with an Amy Winehouse reference replacing that of Lou Reed. (demo)

Listen to Some Kind Of Heaven

In the Middle of the Night (A Long Time Ago)

A bright and melodious pop-reggae track that belies a dark and troubling theme. (demo)

Listen to In the Middle of the Night

Waiting for the Big Time

Energetic and lighthearted "popabilly" with just the right touch of humor. "Get Ready!" (demo)

Listen to Waiting for the Big Time

Canadian Boy

There seems to be a trend these days for tongue-in-cheek portrayals of the stereotypical Canuck. This demo is something I did back when with the legendary Mick Ronson.

Listen to Canadian Boy

Fear of The Future

With shades of Billy Idol and Bowie, this straight-ahead rocker is replete with memorable vocal and guitar riffs. (demo)
