Fuck man, what's the point of having a lil record label if you can't put your own pet projects out?! Marduke is me, Julian Fader.

According to me a few hours ago:

"These days, there's really no such thing as a "demo" for the home recordist. "Sketches" become "demos" become "actual songs" and one hardly realizes that one has arrived. As it were, all of these are songs that started out as sketches for me. Some of them never got past that, some of them are much more "finished", whatever that means. I'll leave it up to you to figure out which are which; I like them all the same. Calling this a "solo album" would infer that I'm in some sort of popular band that garners enough attention that I would have the oppurtunity to "go solo". I'm not, although I am in kc quilty (www.myspace.com/kcquilty) and we are liable to melt your face off. These are just some songs that I made for myself because recording for me is like yoga or mediation for others. I zoned out, I made these songs, I think some other people might like them. If not, it's okay. They've already served their purpose."

There you have it. I'd love to hear what you have to say. The download is free but if you wanna throw a few dollars my way to keep this site/this music going, I'd be much appreciative.

Brit Rock!

The Jesus & Mary Chain (with Hope Sandoval): "Sometimes Always" (Live on MTV)

I remember absentmindedly telling this girl I once dated that the thing I loved most about The Jesus & Mary Chain was their consistency. Thinking back to that time, I really have no idea what the fuck I was talking about.

I do love this song, though.

Blur: Chemical World (Live on TV)

Coxon is God. He also stops the song wayyyyyy early because he's wasted or something.

Teenage Fanclub: "The Concept" (Music Video)

This song, when I first heard it a few months ago, instantly transported me to 1992-3. That's a trip I like to take.

The La's: "There She Goes" (Live on Letterman)

Paul Schaffer plays some tambo on this shit. I once saw that dude perform at Carnegie Hall for this jazz piano series sponsored by, like, the 1,000th anniversary of Steinway & Sons or something. Dude is McLAME!

Stone Roses: "Elephant Stone"

This is far and away my favorite song on the Stone Roses eponymous debut. I enjoy how obsessed with themselves they are on this record. The first track is called "I Wanna Be Adored." If memory serves, there are at least two songs that mention the word "Stone" (this one and "Made of Stone"), and the final track is called "I Am the Resurrection."

British Sea Power: "Carrion" (Live on Jools Holland)

The shit!

Okay, bye.
