1. "It's All Spoiled" - (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 8 track quarter inch tape machine at my parents house in 1996.
I played all the instruments except drums, played by Stan Bullock. We did submixes at Brad Newell's
studio "The Groovy Cellar" in Greensboro, NC. This version is a completely new mix with new vocals
done in 2006. I remixed it On my Mac using Bias Deck 3.5 & remastered it in Bias Peak 4.
The original title was "We're All Spoiled." It was about how we take things for granted in life and turn
it into the mundane. I think this is my best song ever. I'm proud of the melody. One of my favorite lines I ever wrote is "And all the lies from the web we weave break apart in the end."The original recording that wound up on the CD sounds terrible. It sounds like it was recorded in a garbage can. I really spent alot of time cleaning this recording up.


2. "Falls Apart" - (Artist) Wonderwall (CD) Delicate Balance (released) 2007 Neon Pie Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 24 track digital hardrive in Stan Bullock's basement in 2006-2007.
Wonderwall was a Beatles cover band that I joined hoping to become an original band. It didn't happen.
When we first deciced to put out a CD & since we were a Beatles cover band my idea was to do
"Abbey Road In Reverse," each song would be a parallel (not parody) of Abbey Road. It would start
with "Her Majesty" & end with "Come Together." "Falls Apart" was my ending song. That idea was
to involved to get off the ground. The first verse was inspired by a woman who literally dressed
up as
Raggedy Anne and walked from store to store in my work district trying to sell stuffed animals for charity. She also never spoke and mimed instead. It was so insane. Bass- Marc Diffendal, Lead Guitar & Keys- Chuck Martin, Stan Bullock- drums & percussion, I played Guitar and Piano.


3. "Stop Telling Lies"- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.
Remastered 2009 in Peak by me. Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive
P roducer- Nancy Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson
Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar. The most fun I've ever had in the studio to date.
Almost everything was captured on video. This is just a basic pop tune with some of my best chord changes. Great energy on this tune. My original demo was slower and more melancholy.


4. "Tears Of Joy"
- (Artist) Wonderwall (CD) Delicate Balance (released) 2007 Neon Pie Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 24 track digital hardrive in Stan Bullock's basement in 2006-2007.

Written by me & Richard Foltz in 1999. This is not the mix used on Delicate Balance. The original version is on The Poppy Nosh CD "Sour Apples," recorded by Mich Easter. which I didn't include in the collection. This song is basically about being reunited with a dead loved one. It sounds morbid, but I meant for it to be hopeful and spiritual. In this version I start out with just vocals & piano and gradually bring in more instruments. Wonderwall played this song live at The Carolina Theatre, Greensboro Opening up for The Guess Who. After the performance some guy came up to me and said I sounded just like McCartney on this song. Best compliment I ever got.


5. "Love Surrounds Us All"- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (unreleased demo) 1997
Recorded at Wes Lachot's Overdub Lane in Durham. Engineered by John Plymale from The Sex Police.
Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar. This is the last song Bullwinkel Gandhi ever finished recording. I did this
remaster off a cassette mix I had. Not bad considering. Pretty simple tune. Nice melody.


6. "Feeding Me A Line"
- (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86
Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson-Bass and me on guitars. Kevin Brown on piano. Carlos Morales ( from Julian Lennon's first band) on Lead Guitar. Has a catchy hook. Angst ridden song. Craig played digital toms. The Return had officially broken up in 83. Lee moved to NY to go to The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts.
I convinced him to come to NC a few times a year to finish this project. It was doomed from the start and I should have used my money elsewhere, but I still think these songs hold up.


7. "Happy To Be Alive"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) We Turn On (released) 2006 Neon Pie Records.
Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. There is another version of this song recorded
by Bullwinkel Gandhi on a compilation CD "Pop Under the Surface" Volume 4 Zip Records 2001.
This version is based on my 4 track home demo and stays truer to my original demo.
Richard Foltz- Keyboards, Marc Diffendal- Bass & Vocals, John Ayers-Drums and me on guitars.
Just a funky psychedelic song. This is the only song I wrote for this CD by myself.


8. "Hey Now You Know"-
(Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Swirlygig (released) 1994 Noot Records.
Recorded at Carey Sound Commplex. Engineered by Steve Graham. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars & Keyboards, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars. Just a basic tune with a catchy guitar riff. This song still somerizes my philosophies today. The title is my ultimate rock-n-roll cliche joke. "Hey," "Now," and " You Know." If you listen to early Beatles, Stones, Kinks, The Who ...etc they used those 3 expressions constantly. They were the ultimate filler words. I should have thrown in 'Yeah." "Hey Now You Know, Yeah.


9. "Uphill Climb"- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (unreleased) 2009 Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio, Greensboro, NC. I'm playing everything except the Drums, played by Lee Thrift. The original title was "Suddenly Wrong." It was about someone losing their spouse. It was so depressing that I had to revamp it. This song is how I feel about my career. It seems I'm always close, but not close enough. The very last line in the song sucks. I couldn't make it work like I wanted. At some point I even retitled it "Downhill Climb." But that's to negative even for me. I always try to interject some amount of hope.


10. "Beautiful People"
-(Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Swirlygig (released) 1994 Noot Records.
Recorded at Carey Sound Commplex. Engineered by Steve Graham. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars & Keyboards, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.
Robo Jones- Trombone,
and The Inspector - Trumpet. These 2 guys were from the Sex Police and did a tremendous job.
I was 22 when I wrote this song and I went through a serious religious period. My oldest brother took me
to Maryland and got me saved. It didn't take me long to figure out something was amiss here. I don't like
elitist communities. I still believe this event lead to the breaking up of my band The Return. I later on
reinterpreted the meaning of "Beautiful People" to be about anybody we perceive as better than us.


11. "Jacket Racket"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.
Remastered 2009 in Peak by me. Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive
P roducer- Nancy
Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson
Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar.

This song was inspired by an ongoing argument over a jacket and it's ownership.


12. "Sour Apples"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) Sour Apples (released) 1999 Tripper Records
Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. Mixed by Wes Lachot at Overdub Lane. Bass- Dan Campbell, Keyboards- Richard Foltz, Stan Bullock- Drums & Percussion, I played Guitar. Dan and I both engineered on this song. Sour Apples was a substitute for sour grapes. This song is kind of a follow up to"It's All Spoiled" themewise. That swooshing sound at the beginning is some weird toy Richard bought. It was a bitch to get that in key. People have pointed out that the middle eighth of this song sounds like Sgt. Pepper. That was totally unintentional. It originally had words.


13. "Blue Day 1"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Swirlygig (released) 1994 Noot Records
Recorded at Carey Sound Commplex. Engineered by Steve Graham. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars & Keyboards, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.
I wrote this song after seeing The Everly Brothers Live At Albert Hall on HBO. I always wanted to send it to them. That special made me realize how great they were!


14. "My Dizzy Dreamer"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD)Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie. Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered
this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. Stan Bullock played Drums. Brad Newell on Acoustic. This song is about my actual self singing to my ideal self. I could hear ELO
doing this song. I think this is one of my best melodies. I don't like how it wound up sounding kind of like a march. The intro was originally a completely different song than the rest. May have a little Brian Wilson influence.


15. "Cat's Crystal"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records.
This is the first of 3 songs I didn't write. Richard Foltz wrote this one and the other two. It was recorded at Brad Newell's studio. Brunson Hoole & Harvey Mitchell, who passed away, played Drums. It's very psychedelic. Sounds Magical Mystery Tourish to me.


16. "Come In"-
(Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (unreleased demo) 1994.
Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.
It was recorded at Brad Newell's studio. Great guitar work by Fran. This is another recording I had to pull off of a cassette. I did additional overdubs on my Mac in Deck 3.5. I was into Prince when I wrote this. That's where the high falsetto comes from. May have a little Zepplin in there.


17. "Big Blue Sun 1"
- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) Sour Apples (released) 1999 Tripper Records.
Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. Mixed by Wes Lachot at Overdub Lane. Bass- Dan Campbell, , Stan Bullock- Drums & Percussion, I played Piano.
I accidentally nabbed that title from Adrian Belew.
My song is completely different from his. When I realized where I got that title I was so mad at myself.


18. "Pinky White"- (Artist) Bangers-N-Mash (unreleased demo) 1993. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Guitars. Recorded at Duck Kee Studio. Engineered by Jerry Kee. This song was wriiten by all 3 of us. I wrote the lyrics. This is a song about sexual harassment. The verses are from the viewpoint of the woman being harrassed and the choruses are from the harasser. This song stems from a story my wife, Barbara told me. The Peckinpah line I threw in because I had just seen "Straw Dogs." As dark as this subject matter may seem when you listen to the song it's very innocuous.


19. "You're The Only Thing That’s On My Mind" - (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records. This is the only acoustic ballad on the disc. Richard Foltz- Keyboards & Backing Vocals, Brad Newell- Mandolin, Stan Bullock-Tambourine and me on Acoustic Guitar. It was recorded at Brad Newell's studio. This is a nice song, but I've written better. Good sounding recording.


20. "Outta Place"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.
Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive P roducer- Nancy Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar. Good psychedelic rocker.


21. "Good Time Spent"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. I play piano on it. I have to say I wasn't pleased with the original mastering job done for this CD. I had to take it to Chris Stamey and remastered it. This was the first time I ever met him and I have to say he was super gaduper nice! Lynn Blakey was working for him at the time and it was great to see and hang out with her too. I only met Holsapple once at a show in the 80's.


22. "Gorilla"- (Artist) Bangers-N-Mash (unreleased demo) 1993.
Mike Nicholson- Bass & WaWa Guitar, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Guitars.
Recorded at The Groovy Cellar. Engineered by Brad Newell. I think it was recorded on a half inch 8 Track. This song was inspired by a documentary I saw on PBS about apes learning sign language. Otto was one of the Gorillas. I think he knew 30-50 words. I think he died in 2007. This song is a goofy metal romp. I did additonal overdubs on my Mac. The Gorilla sounds on it are actually reprocessed African drums even the one at the end.


23. "Don't Even Think About It"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) We Turn On (released) 2006 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Richard Foltz- Keyboards, Marc Diffendal- Bass & Vocals, John Ayers-Drums and me on guitars. The whole band wrote this song during rehearsals. Good tune.


24. "Nothing But Toad"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Swirlygig (released) 1994 Noot Records.
Recorded at Carey Sound Commplex. Engineered by Steve Graham. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.
The title of this song came from two sources. My wife had a freind who wanted to open a lingerie store and call it "Nothing But Hose." I had just read an article about a group of teens licking toads to get high. Thus came "Nothing But Toad." I thinks it's a song about self isolation. The second verse was inspired by my graphic design classes at GTCC. Adobe is a software company. There's also a line about a gazeebo. GTCC has a really cool brick gazeebo on the campus. I had to draw it freehand.


25. "WIndow Pain"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (unreleased) This is a hybrid recording. The vocals, piano, & Brushes, played by Brunson Hoole are from The "Kung Pow" CD. I layered extra Vocals, Bass, Electric Guitar, and Drum Machines ontop of it. Remixed in Deck. I think I wrote this song when I was 19 or 20. Another song about self isolation.


26. "Clone Farm"-
(Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records.
Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. L
ee Thrift- Drums. In the 90s I was reading a Newsweek article about banning cloning in the US. They used the term "Clone Farm" as an example of the extreme right wing view of what could possibly happen if it weren't made illegal. That term just jumped out at me.


27. "Inside Out 1
"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) Sour Apples (released) 1999 Tripper Records.
Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium.
Mixed by Wes Lachot at Overdub Lane. Stan Bullock- Drums & Percussion, Mitch Easter -Lead Acoustic Guitar & Bass, I played Piano & Acoustic. I wrote this with Mark McCracken. I had the verses and choruses done, but I needed a bridge. I mailed to Mark and he came up with a great bridge. Mitch's solo in this is really nice.


28. "Turning Wheels"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Swirlygig (released) 1994 Noot Records.
Recorded at Carey Sound Commplex. Engineered by Steve Graham. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars & Harmonies, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.
Sue Ivanitch from "Gravity's Pull" did nice backing vocals on this. I like the riff and the energy behind this song. This is a song about all the smart women in my life.


29. "Mr. Splitting Nails"-
(Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. This song was inspired by Mike Nicholson telling me how he saw a crazy old man walking down a railroad track screaming "I'm Mr. Splitting Nails!" The overall idea of this song is about these strange old men I would see at the flea market growing up. They would claim to be authorities on everything. Most of the time they were just scammers trying to sell their junk.


30. "Something New"-
(Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86.
Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson-Bass and me on Guitars & Keyboards.
This song begins with a backwards drum echo. I remember telling Tom I wanted the song to start this way. He wanted to try all these different techniques to achieve this effect. I suggested to reverse the tape and on a open track record echo on the first beat. We debated this for a long, long time. I said "let's just try it." He finally gave in saying this isn't going to work. After we did it and listened back Tom said "I'll be damned, it worked." We tried alot of strange things during these sessions.


31. "Deep Suffering"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 8 track quarter inch tape machine at my parents house in 1996. I played all the instruments except drums, played by Stan Bullock. This is another song that wound up sounding like it was recorded in a garbage can. I really like this tune. It's got a good groove. It also has my best Guitar solo to date. Gobblygook lyrics that sound good. My main approach back then.


32. "Keeping Clean"- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (unreleased demo) 1994. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars. Just A basic rocker.

33. "In Your Dreams"- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (unreleased) 2009.
Home demo recorded on a Fostex 24 track digital hardrive. Mixed in Deck. I wrote this song for Barbara.


34. "She loves You A Little Bit"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box. Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive P roducer- Nancy Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar. I obviously was making a joke on the Beatles classic "She Loves You." The riff in it sounds more like 'Ticket To Ride."


35. "Rudy's In The Funhouse 1"- (Artist) Bangers-N-Mash (unreleased demo) 1993.
Mike Nicholson- Bass, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Guitars. Recorded at Duck Kee Studio.
Engineered by Jerry Kee. This is a song inspired by a pinball machine called "Funhouse." It was in a little bar in Greensboro, NC called College Hill. There was a ventriloquist dummie head in the middle of the game called 'Rudy."
If you hit the ball in his mouth you would get big points. Barbara and I would play it for hours.


36. "Sleepy Head" - (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 8 track quarter inch tape machine at my parents house in 1996.
Richard Foltz- piano, Dwayne Dodson- Bass, and I'm on Guitar. I cowrote this song with Richard Foltz. He came up with the title and I came up with the lyrics and melody. He wanted it to be more like, wake up, sleepy head, but I made the song about being a sleepy head. He was okay with the twist.


37. "Stung By Queen Alice"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.
Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive P roducer- Nancy Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar.
This was a song I wrote about a girl I knew in the 80's who was a complete Heavy Metal groupie. She went from prep to metal chick overnite. Queen Alice is the name of a street in Greensboro near where we both worked together. She was a super sweet girl, though.


38. "Lil Buzzkeeper" - (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. Stan Bullock- Congas. This song was inspired by a documentary I saw on Meth addicts. The drug slowly eats away all they're emotions. Very sad.


39. "Train Of Thought" - (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records
I played all the instruments except drums, played by Stan Bullock. This version has new vocals done in 2008 and I rewrote the choruses to be about today's computer generation and how actual human contact is being lost.o

40. "We Breath"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) Sour Apples (released) 1999 Tripper Records.
Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. Mixed by Wes Lachot at Overdub Lane. Bass- Dan Campbell, Stan Bullock- Drums & Percussion,
Richard Foltz- Piano & keyboards, and I'm on Guitar Synth (Cellos). This is the second song in the collection I didn't write. It's a environmental song. It could be a good theme for Greenpeace. Really pretty melody.

41. "Cornflower Blue"- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.
Remastered 2009 in Peak by me. Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive
P roducer- Nancy
Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson
Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar.
This is the first of two song in the collection where I wrote the music and melody and Nancy Neon wrote the lyrics. Nancy first gave me some lyrics and ask if I could come up with a melody. I took it home and messed with it for a while, but I couldn't make anything work. I had a new song I was working on with no lyrics. I then realized if Nancy restrucured her lyrics more around my melody it might work. She revamped the lyrics and it worked out very nice. I still love this tune and the recording of it today.


42. "Wildflowers Never Last"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. This is a song about rock stars dying young. The sax solo is actually a guitar synth.


43. "Lock You In The Cage"
- (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86.
Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson-Bass and me on guitars.
This is a funky tune about paranoia.


44. "Get Up On Your Horse"
- (Artist) Wonderwall (CD) Delicate Balance (released) 2007 Neon Pie Records. This song was recorded on a Fostex 24 track digital hardrive in Stan Bullock's basement in 2006-2007. Bass- Marc Diffendal, Lead Guitar & Keys- Chuck Martin, Stan Bullock- drums & percussion, I played Guitar and Piano. Just a standard rock-n-roll tune. Maybe a little like "Rockpile."


45. "Corndog Tree"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. The inspiration for this tune came when I was traveling to a flea market in Winston with my brother Raymond and I saw a tree shaped like a corndog. The rest of the lyrics are all mumbo jumbo. It's just a fun silly tune.


46. "Wild Tiger Machine"
- (Artist) Bangers-N-Mash (unreleased demo) 1993.
Mike Nicholson- Bass & WaWa Guitar, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Guitars.
Recorded at The Groovy Cellar. Engineered by Brad Newell. I think it was recorded on a half inch 8 Track.
I think this was inspired by an advert that had a tiger built out of car parts I saw once.


47. "Hot Dog Big Pig You"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Swirlygig (released) 1994 Noot Records.
Mike Nicholson- Bass, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Guitars. Recorded at Duck Kee Studio.
Engineered by Jerry Kee.
This song is about God, The Devil, and Sex. The plague lyric was about Aids.


48. "Never Knew Her Name"
- (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86 Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson-Bass and me on guitars. Lee Spencer mainly wrote this one. I help out some in the lyrics & chorus. Lee is actually the main vocalist on this song. That's real brass that I helped arrange on it.


49. "Just Look Around"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 8 track quarter inch tape machine at my parents house in 1996. I played all the instruments except drums, played by Stan Bullock. Nice tune, Had a real hard time remastering it.


50. "Shadow's Gonna Get You"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (unreleased demo) 1994
Mike Nicholson- Bass, Greg Bower- Lead Guitars, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.
This was recorded on a 4 track cassette recorder. I did additional overdubs in Deck. I think I was into the band "The Cult" when I wrote this. I was also listening to The Hoodoo Gurus.


51. "Q-tip Islands"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD)Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. I wrote this song after I went to an Indian (not native) wedding reception. There was alot of Ballywood music being played there. It's a gobbleygook bunch of different random ideas.


52. "Ultra Taboo"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) In The Garden (released) 1996 Tripper Records.
This song was recorded on a Fostex 8 track quarter inch tape machine at my parents house in 1996.I played all the instruments except drums, played by Stan Bullock.
I think I was trying to go for a Roxy Music feel on this song. I was listening to "Avalon" alot. To me Avalon was the Sgt. Pepper of the 80's.


53. "No Illusions"
- (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86 Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman - Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson - Bass and me on guitars. Super psychedelia revisited. Another self isolation tune.

P roducer- Nancy
Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson
Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar.
I wrote this song about a girl I was infatuate with in high school. Basic pop tune.


55. "Dull It All"
- (Artist) Wonderwall (CD) Delicate Balance (released) 2007 Neon Pie Records,
This song was recorded on a Fostex 24 track digital hardrive in Stan Bullock's basement in 2006-2007. Bass- Marc Diffendal, Lead Guitar & Keys- Chuck Martin, Stan Bullock- drums & percussion, I played Guitar and Piano.
I wrote this right when The Beatles "Anthology" was released. On the Conan O'Brien show they made a joke about finding a lost Lennon tape. It was from his answering machine. I loved that idea so much I wanted to write one. That's how I came up with the first line "Hello I'm not here right now, Leave a messeage at the tone." The title is a pun on Tylenol.


56. "Here's To Shacktown Inn"- (Artist) Poppy Nosh (CD) We Turn On (released) 2006 Neon Pie Records,
Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Richard Foltz- Keyboards, Marc Diffendal- Bass & Vocals, John Ayers-Drums and me on guitars.
This is the final song I didn't write. Richard wrote this about leaving his home in Yadkinville to move to Wilmington. He lived on Shacktown Rd.

Mike Nicholson- Guitar, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Bass.

Recorded at Carey Sound Commplex. Engineered by Steve Graham. Mike Nicholson- Bass, Fran Sandifer- Lead Guitars & Keyboards, Stan Bullock- Drums, & me on Guitars.

P roducer- Nancy
Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson

Just a rock-n-roll tune about the local club scene. Nancy the dancer is actually Nancy Neon.


61. "Turn The Knob
"- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD)Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. I wrote this song while driving around in my car.

- (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1982 Recorded at Mitch Easter's Drive-In Studio. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson - Bass and me on guitars & piano. This is the first professional recording I ever did. I added piano at The Soundlab a few years later with Tom Rowan.


63. "Brave The Storm"- (Artist) Stratocruiser (CD)
Stratocruiser (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Mike Nicholson plays everything on the track, except for drums. Mike had a bunch of tunes he was working on and ask me to sing on them. I wrote the melody and lyrics on this one. I was trying to sound like Andy Partridge from XTC. Maybe too much.


64. "Cherry Popart"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD)Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. I think I was poking fun at The Spice Girls or Britney Spears on this song. It was also a tip of the hat to "Benny And The Jets" by Elton John. My vocal was trying to sound like Peter Gabriel. It's a song about young male obsession with female pop icons. I actually overdubbed my own handclaps 40 times in this song to sound like a live audience. For this mix I added more real audience sounds. The one on the CD is just me.


65. "Song For D"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.
Remastered 2009 in Peak by me. Recorded at Mitch Easter's studio The Fidelitorium. Executive
P roducer- Nancy
Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson
Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar.
This is the second song I wrote with Nancy Neon. Nancy wrote the words and I wrote the music. Great straight forward rock-n-roll song. I don't know all the references, but "D" is Bob Dylan.


66. "Jung-KaKa-Kia-MaMaMan
" - (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86 Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson-Bass and me on guitars. Lee Spencer came up with the idea for this song when he was living in Brooklyn. It's kind of a goofy song now, but at the time he was really culture shocked by all the junkies he'd see begging for money in his neighborhood. The title is supposed to sound like saying junky man while studdering.


67. "Side Show"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered
this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer.
The idea behind this song was to combine a rock show with a strip club. Sort of the erotism of pop music. The visuals in this song were actual ideas I had for a crazy live show I wanted to put together.


68. "Not So Humble Pie"
- (Artist) Stratocruiser (CD) Stratocruiser (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Mike Nicholson plays everything on this track, except for drums played by Doug Edmunds. Mike & Doug wrote most of this song. I wrote the guitar riff in the middle. It came from a Bangers-N-Mash tune called "Joy Boy." Good Rocker.


69. "Permanent State Of Frustration"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (unreleased) 2009. Lee Thrift-Drums And Percussion. I'm on Bass & Guitars. Recorded at The Groovy Cellar. Engineered by Neb Rodgers. I did additional overdubs on my Mac in Deck. I wrote this when I was into Funk. I think "Word Up" by Cameo was on the radio at the time.


70. "Blue Day 2"
- (Artist) Wonderwall (CD) Delicate Balance (released) 2007 Neon Pie Record.s
This song was recorded on a Fostex 24 track digital hardrive in Stan Bullock's basement in 2006-2007. Bass- Marc Diffendal, Lead Guitar & Keys- Chuck Martin, Stan Bullock- drums & percussion, I played Guitar and Piano.


71. "Weird Times"
- (Artist) Bullwinkel Gandhi (CD) Kung Pow (released) 1996 Pandora’s Box.

P roducer- Nancy
Neon, Mike Nicholson- Bass & Guitar, Greg Bower- Lead Guitar & Vocals, Brunson
Hoole- Drums & Percussion, and me on Guitar.
Just a straight forward rock pop tune.


72. "Bongo Bongo"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. This song was inspired by the video game "Zelda Ocarina of Time." One of the bosses in the game was called Bongo Bongo.


73. "Conservative Movement"
- (Artist) The Return (unreleased demo) 1985-86 Recorded at The Soundlab by Tom Rowan. Lee Spencer -Guitar & Vocals, Craig Pearman- Drums & Vocals, Dwayne Dodson-Bass and me on guitars. I wrote this during the Reagan Administration. The Cold War was still going on. Everybody was so obsessed with being PC.


74. "Mystery To Me"- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (unreleased) 2009.
This was another demo done on a 4 track cassette recorder. My wife and I love the show "Monk" with Tony Shaloub and this song was my attempt at writing a theme song. I wrote it during the first season before Randy Newman wrote a theme for it.

75. "Dirty Rag"- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. All the Clone Farm Carnival songs were an attempt to create something I call Technodelia. Psychedelia music you can dance to. David Moore plays the Harmonica on this track and did a great job.


76. "Perverse Psychology"- (Artist) Bangers-N-Mash (unreleased demo) 1993.
Mike Nicholson- Guitars & Screams, Lee Thrift- Drums & Percussion, & me on Bass. Recorded at Duck Kee Studio. Engineered by Jerry Kee.
Just a pun on reverse psychology. Kind of a Punk tune. Has a free form middle section.


77. "Big Blue Sun 2"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD) Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered
this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer.

79. "Inside Out 2"
- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (CD)Clone Farm Carnival (released) 2002 Neon Pie Records. Recorded at The Flying Hippo Studio. ADAT 24 track hardrive. I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer. This version is from my actual demo I did. I was trying to getting an "Escavelle" production sound on this recording. It actually has two bass parts playing simultaneously in it.


80. "Jump Into The Deep End"- (Artist) Ronald Tucker (unreleased) 2009
I recorded and engineered this myself. The backing track was done on a handheld Roland PMA 5 sequencer.
This song I did this year. I used an Autotune on my vocals. It's about not playing it safe, which I tend to do too much. I think most people do.
