Bio

I wrote my first song in 1983, at age 9, “You make me cry that special way”. I have written bunches of songs since, in the bands that I’ve been in: Adickdid (1991-1993), Team Dresch (1993-1996 and again 2005-present) and The Butchies (1998-2005), and with my solo music project, though none can match the coolness of my 9 year old angst. Godmakesmonkeys is my 4th solo record, the content of which is (guess what?!) love songs, some of them with undertones of loss and grief, the mixture of excitement and guardedness we have when falling in love. Or you know, “falling in love”, whatever that really means. Trying to write about something so visceral as sound/songs, it’s next to impossible, the songs on the record are mostly acoustic, mostly sparse, pretty tender or emo, some have clear stories to tell and some veer down paths of obscurity and abstract sentimentality. Once, my band the Butchies, opened for Cheap Trick – and because of this, I think you should at LEAST give this record a quick listen through. Come on! And once, Beck opened for my band Adickdid when we played with the Spinanes at Jabberjaw in los angeles 1992. And once, I met “Jo” from “the Facts of Life” in San Francisco, when I was like 13.
