Die, Die, Die, my Scoundrel!

Welcome to the first entry to my Blog, whose purpose is to be a place where I plan to upload some music that I've recorded in the years spanning fro 1996 until now.....

DIE SCOUNDRELS is a punky / funky / rock / anything-goes type band that I played drums in with two very talented guys, Ant Laurino (Vaginasore Jr.) and Jon Bassett (aka Crap Bastard). Influences included bands like No Means No, Ween, Tenacious D, Faith No More, Mr Bungle, Electric Six, Nirvana etc.
(you get the picture) ;-)

We released two albums, "Kidnapped Scientist" and (the somewhat cynically titled) "Get Rich or... Die Scoundrels", though due to the shortness of the songs, neither ran over the 30 minute mark.
We had a LOT of fun making these albums in my home studio, often fuelled by copious amounts of 100 Pipers Scotch whiskey, with sessions running well in to the night (probably to the dismay of my neighbours). Anthony's singing, unlike most people I know, seemed to improve the more he drank! Anyway, here are the two "proper" releases by the band in one place. I hope you enjoy the music and any comments, good or bad, are of course welcomed!!
