Solo pat. 12 never before released originals, only vocal and acoustic guitar.The first in a series of unreleased found recordings from different times and places in pat's checkered past. These songs are not on any other album or compilation. You can also download> HERE.
Ten previously unknown tracks from the '70s, dubbed from the original 5" and 7" reel-to-reel tapes show sides of the 18-26 year old songster that few have known or imagined. The playing and writing, from pseudo-gospel to fingerpicked blues to jazzy swing, are surprisingly mature. "This is a record of a time when I was living out of a car, on couches, cots, etc. It reflects my '70s living conditions: crude, minimal, sometimes dirty." You can listen and download> HERE.
Includes download. Features Invisible Pistols' title track plus "Crazy Head" and two versions of "Space Kitty Blues" (the Purgatory Hill version and a previously unreleased "80s Retro" remix of the original from pat's Begging Her Graces LP, a companion piece to the book, Space Kitty Blues.)
Part allegory, part paean to The Vinyl Record, part autobiographical fiction, part autopsy, pat's first novel dissects a song in search of truth or something better. Playful soul searching and social commentary propel this earthy examination through the back alleys and clandestine clubs of Barcelona at the turn of the millennium.
A digitally enhanced cat snatched Matt's muse. Now he's looking for it in all the wrong places...
Protagonist Matt Packard (FutureX) loved making music until his 1980s hit became a TV cat food ad. Now he’s lost. Some otherworldly friends - a vinyl loving deejay named Diamond Stylus, a goth ex-cheerleader named Kat (who Matt thinks might be an angel) - try to save him. But perhaps he’s doomed...
“Great book! Kind of like if Grant Morrisson was messing with the guy from Portnoy's Complaint like he messed with Animal Man, if the guy from Portnoy's Complaint was really some variant of Will Lee from William S. Burroughs' various books.” –Rev. Norb Rozek
