My original 3 albums--THE SECRET LIFE OF BOYS, RUSH PUSH & REMIXES DEMOS + BOOTLEGS--have been re-issued as CDs at Amazon.com. They are produced on demand and shipped to you directly from Amazon.
THE SECRET LIFE OF BOYS
Until I made this record I had only done singles. This was the first time I decided to make a collection of tracks that were linked in sound and subject matter. The debut album was recorded in an empty apartment in south west Washington, DC. I spent about 6 months writing and recording 23 tracks. Only the ones I really liked made the final cut. This is a very "gay record" whether people realize it or not. Full of homoerotic vibes, this was the album that got me signed to INgrooves when CEO Robb McDaniels heard "Boy Seventeen" on a San Francisco radio station and called me up to ask if I wanted to perform at Burning Man. This is still some of my favorite music. If I'm going to sit down and listen to my own work---this is usually the one I put on.
I started writing this record immediately after The Secret Life of Boys was complete. This album has a lot of cool things on it. "Little Sister" was always a song that many people loved. So is the title track. I had a lot of fun making this because after the debut record I stopped worrying and really began to love the process of constantly recording. Interestingly when these tracks were complete I still had no title for the album. One night at a bar in downtown DC I asked a bunch of friends to pick a name. Any name. One of them blurted out, "Just call it RUSH PUSH damn it!" And that was that.
REMIXES, DEMOS + BOOTLEGS
Over the years I stupidly gave away a lot of demos on cassettes and sometimes on CDs. A number of friends collected these little souvenirs but a lot of early tracks got into the hands of DJs and radio people and slowly made their way out onto the internets. Often these versions were not the best or were flat out not finished. So, this was a chance to revisit some of those tracks and polish them a little. This album contains one of my most successful releases "Groove Thru The Floor". Also, a nearly 9 minute remix of "Boy Seventeen" as well as "Dim All The Lights" which ended up on a movie soundtrack.
