New release Eyephone is out. I will get it uploaded soon, but it is in CD form for request. It is not being sold. Homemade all the way. Weather has been great, so planning a show and then some. Texistential Waveform #13....are you feeling lucky? Don't pass over Thomas Ayresol: Experiment 1, Texistential Waveform #12. We are back on a roll.
In another dimension
December 31, 2014
Ok, so I slipped into a dark dimension, but I am back and working on music again. There should be a short CD coming out soon and working towards the next live show sometime in 2015. This year was a bad year and it needs to go away. I command it!

New show!. Playing with DJ Klinz. Saturday September 21st from 8pm on. Will be playing some old and new songs. Always fresh, because it's always live. Sushi, suds, shock waves, spirits and sounds. Raw fish and raw power. Come check it out. Shogun inside the loop.
July 29, 2013
Now on Soundcloud. Seems like a cool place to get sucked in even deeper to music exploration. I think I will use it to put some less structured music up or experimental ideas. Yes, now you have to follow that too.
February 19, 2013
Got some video going now thanks to the new Zoom recorder. Check it out. There should be some content growing there as I get better with the whole visual thing. There should be some more shows in the near future as the weather gets nicer.
October 19, 2012
The last show at Shogun could have been considered a total disaster. It was raining pretty hard. My equipment was getting wet and flaking out. I ended up playing underneath a bunch of towels and trash bags suspended from the porch frame. But the people who came out and braved the weather were the best. The staff at Shogun were super cool as always. So I'm doing it again. Friday October 26th at 8pm. If anyone has any pics or video from the last show, please send them. There will be some light show this time if the weather permits.
September 11, 2012
I will be playing at Shoguns in Tyler September 29th Saturday from 8pm to about 11pm. (The one inside the loop on Broadway) There will be 2 sets. The first one will be the structured Enchanter set. The second one will be more freeform Alchemy set. The weather is nice right now and their outdoor covered patio rocks. The sushi is the best in the area. Come check it out. Flyer to follow. There will be merch at the show, some of it even free.
New show in the works
April 17, 2012
It has been a long time since I produced any news. Working on the new show ENCHANTOUR and associated light show. The set will reach back into the past, cover some of the present and also include some show exclusive material. If I get my act together, this may produce a DVD. More details soon.
May 14, 2011
ENCHANTER will be hitting the airwaves somewhere near you soon. Also beginning to work on some new materials and methods for the next release and a live show. Aural Innovations included the song EMPERORS BELT on the latest space rock radio show. Be sure to check out www.space4peace.org to learn about the inspiration for the song. Space is a place for rock, not war.
February 1, 2011
A lot has happened since the last update, over a year ago. ENCHANTER is now out on CDBaby, digital release etc. Got the much more enviro-friendly packaging going for this release. Plenty of artwork to wrap the music in. Got the THOMAS AYRESOL release produced: MAXIMUM COMMANDER. As usual, was good to work with Thomas. This is going to be a busy year for me. But I plan on promoting the new cd, turning over the website, starting a label site for TEXISTENTIAL WAVEFORM, working on a show and getting some video material going. Thats a tall order. Hopefully the next update will be on a updated page and with some much needed new content. Time has been in short supply. The studio has been tweaked to new levels of efficiency. I committed deletion on MySpace which was a relief. Really big disappointment overall. I did meet some cool people there, but basically, the whole operation is dead. A kingdom was sacrificed to become a gigantic pointless billboard for advertisers to advertise to one another. Really pathetic. I wish there was some forum like it used to be to network with local bands or like minds. Oh well...back to the voice in the wilderness.
Irons in the fire
January 30, 2010
I'm about six songs deep into ENCHANTER and have a few more to go. Also have been working on a THOMAS AYRESOL release to be out soon on TEXISTENTIAL WAVEFORM as usual. A lot of distractions lately. Been absorbing a lot of inspirational music. I should have another live show together later this year. Getting into the whole background video thing takes on a life of it's own. The grass roots solo musician approach gets a little onerous when you expect what I do. Complexity is a pleasure and a burden.
July 30, 2009
Wow, its been a while since I updated. I didn't even turn the page over for the TRANSIENT release. I guess I was focused on shows and so forth. I have also been busy getting some releases done on the TEXISTENTIAL WAVEFORM label. I have been doing some equipment upgrades, which is distracting in a pleasant way. I am also working on my next release to be titled ENCHANTER. Likely out in 2010, but not sure when. So you see, I am working.
Hangin in the Tomato Shed
March 1, 2009
The Tomato Shed show went off well. Check out the pics and YouTube videos on MySpace. Special thanks to Jason for setting up the show and doing the video work. Look for more shows here in the future. In other news, I am back in the studio starting my next cd. I recently had a great jam with J. Andrew Bobbitt and Thomas Ayresol here in GOOD headquarters. There are going to be some rereleases of J. Andrew Bobbitt and Overlight/Underdark stuff on the Texistential Waveform label. Get your stimulus check cashed and get caught up on some of this historical music. Thats right, now you can get it!
January 28, 2009
My new cd is out on CDBaby and soon to be on digital distribution. This is music I did for the Avant Garden show in October of 2008. These songs were recorded live while practicing. Special thanks to everyone at the show that night as well as the supporting artists Thomas Ayresol and Jeff Bobbitt. This is an all instrumental venture. I have another show in Tyler TX at The Tomato Shed soon. So if you missed the show, now is your chance to check it out. After that, its back to the studio for more Good antics.
Avant Garden 10/28/08
October 26, 2008
The show kicked ass. Thanks to everyone who came out. Special thanks to my brother who ran lighting for my set. Check out the pics and video. Got to open for J. Andrew Bobbitt and Thomas Ayresol, so the whole night rocked. More to come. I am working on TRANSIENT which will be based on various recordings of the set. Thanks to Avant Garden for providing the perfect environment.
September 29, 2008
After years of preparation, I am finally getting around to doing a show. Avant Garden, Friday October 24th at 8pm. Eddie Parsec is DJing and I am opening for J. Andrew Bobbitt with Thomas Ayresol closing the show out. Light show full tilt to boot. I am glad to work with these fantastic musicians who have been a tremendous influence to me. We go way back. We go way forward. This is a very cool venue with a lot of class and great vibes. Don't miss it.
September 19, 2008
I have gone off about Aural Innovations before so no point in doing it again. It is THE place to discover space rock and odd music in general. A true ear to the underground. There is a nice review on the site now so here is the link :
Eddie Parsec Remix
July 29, 2008
Check out the EDDIE PARSEC remix of Global Warming on his MySpace website myspace.com/eddieparsec. Its labeled "Artist GOOD". He has some really interesting ways of messing with music and has been inspiring to me. Thanks Eddie!
Secret code for HELL LEVEL
May 10, 2008
I can get you through it with unlimited ammo. This is the new release from THOMAS AYRESOL on our mutual label TEXISTENTIAL WAVEFORM. The Ayresol experience live is quite different from the studio. You either have to catch a show or buy this cd...so decide! I was glad to offer assistance in recording and design. Look for more releases from us. Now is your chance to reload.
April 13, 2008
The new cd FANATIC is available now on CD Baby. Soon to be in digital distribution as well. Check out the sample tracks at CD Baby or on MySpace. Out on the TEXISTENTIAL WAVEFORM label run by myself and co-executive THOMAS AYRESOL. My next project involves generating a live show, and working on the GOOD/AYRESOL collaboration.
New CD out April 2008
January 19, 2008
Get a preview of the first song GLOBAL WARMING on the MySpace page.
Peeking into the future
December 26, 2007
You can check out a preliminary remix version of ROUGH IT OUT by the GOOD/AYRESOL project on the THOMAS AYRESOL myspace site. Address is in the links section. We are totally serious.
Out of the darkness...
October 18, 2007
And into the light. Stage light. In preparation for the live show I will eventually get around to doing, I have started getting into performance lighting. I will be supporting some shows in the near future. Now dance...before I blast ya.

Not just an update
June 21, 2007
So the MySpace thing has worked out well. My next CD is about half way done. I am shooting for a 2008 release. Some hints may start showing up on the MySpace page so keep it on your radar.
