It was M2's death metal percussion that melted into something else.... strange, strange, strange.... don't do drugs... just listen to this tune.

Here's a link to a bigger copy of the above picture:

Ten Dollar Bill

This is the 2nd to last tune we did at House of Guinness. It's a cover of ourselves (unlike most of the other tunes, we didn't make this one up on the spot even though we weren't sure how to play it). You can find the the original version in this post:*t, that was 3 years ago... time sure the hell flies...

Have a great weekend everybody... and enjoy some free music:

Tornado Warning Sirens - Audio Recording, Milwaukee, WI, June 2006, pics of Greenfield Park siren.. spooky sounds of thunder and sirens

Photo of Tornado/Warning Siren in West Allis (Milwaukee), WI, June 2008. Photo by Mike Fisk
Here's an audio recording taken in West Allis, WI (suburb of Milwaukee) of the tornado warning sirens before the torrential rains hit on June 7, 2008 (it's pretty haunting and spooky):

I dig the person screaming at the start of it and the way the different sirens blend in with the constant rumble of the thunder. There is beauty in the terribleness of nature. Also, the birds keep chirping throughout.

Here's photos of one of the warning sirens. It's over in Greenfield Park in West Allis, just a mile or two North of my house.

Terrace under water photo.... Photo of Park Place Pond flood, Milwaukee, WI June 2008

Here's another pic of the Park Place Pond flood. This is terrace/patio thing that they have next to the pond. It's nice, but is usually full of goose crap. Unfortunately, the bricks have started to buckle since the flood receded.

The Park Place pond was a good 2 to 3 feet or so higher than normal. It took about 3 or 4 days for it get back down to normal levels. I believe the water on this side of the subcontental divide flows to the Mississippi rather than the Milwaukee River, but I really don't know. It probably flows into the Fox river and from there ultimately all the way to New Orleans. Click here for an interesting article on the subcontinental divide. And here's a map of the subcontinental divide. You can check out the benches when there's normal water levels by clicking this link:

Strange Flashlight Umbrellas photo - Last Song Last Gig - InstruRock - Flashlight PhotoArt Constellation Collage - Crazy Tune - Floating Umbrellas

Docious, floating umbrellas flashlight photo collage. By Mike Fisk
Here ya go at last. A new Soul Amp tune:

This is the last jam of the last set we did at the House of Guinness in May of 2008. It was recorded using the Zoom H4 on a tripod as per the usual. One difference is that we ran the keys through a new amp and into the PA and so the keys are a bit more stereo this time as opposed to previous HOG gigs.

It's InstruRock....

The picture is a clue to the name of the song.

Root River Flooding June 7, 2008 West Allis, WI....June flooding in Milwaukee County

Strange that my last post was of the Root River flooding in April. But this flood beats that hands down. The parkway became a river for a short while. Glad to say that it's finally back to normal. All of us in Wisconsin are hoping this break from the rain lasts. Check out the folks in their waders.
