Beneath The Ashes

by Michael McDermott

This was an album of outtakes. "Ridin' The Spare" was recorded at Mark Goldenberg's house with Jackson Browne's band. That was fun...great bunch of guys thanks to Mark Dobrucki for that. Most of these tunes were recorded in Texas. I have thought about revisiting these songs for several of them really stand the test of time.

...and in the meantime

The "Lost" Seattle Record

by Michael McDermott

The follow up to " 620 W. Surf" which was recorded in Seattle with Rick Parashar ( Pearl Jam, Blind Melon) which was never released...not great quality.....but a blast to listen to....was starting to figure out how to sing, the band had rehearsed up there in Seattle when Nirvana had just exploded and Pearl Jam was just starting to make a lot of noise...recorded in the same studio as "Ten" was a very exciting time to be there. A lot of debauchery, music and basketball.

Monday Morning Madness

by Michael McDermott

Each Monday for three years we posted a new song for the week. Mostly new stuff Michael was working on, home demos, old out takes, or songs for one reason or another never made an official release. All the while hoping to make Mondays or whatever day of the week a little more manageable.
