POMPADOUR (2012)
Written following the 2011- 8 cities/8 drummers tour, Scrote's EP, in his own words, “is a bonafide barn burner”, featuring dazzling talent from sax impresario Ron Dziubla (Jarvis Cocker, Nikka Costa), bassist Brett Simons (Fiona Apple, Chocolate Genius), bassist Tim Lefebvre (Elvis Costello, Nick Cave), and drummer Blair Sinta (Damien Rice, The Submarines).

SCROTE (2010)
Scrote’s self-titled debut solo album was released with musical influences running the gamut of his musical pursuits as mirrored in the other artists he's worked with - sometimes noisy, or melodic, sometimes ambient, or otherworldly, or just simply straight up rockin'. Recorded in Los Angeles and includes bassist Brett Simons (Fiona Apple, Chocolate Genius) and drummer Kevin Stevens (Neon Neon) with special guests, including David Bowie guitarist/collaborator Reeves Gabrels, legendary MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, The Donnas' singer Brett Anderson, Foo Fighter keyboardist Rami Jaffee, and Les Claypool percussionist Mike Dillon.
