New Song! Unfriend by Throwing Toasters

TT_UnfriendSingleCoverI’ve got a brand new comedy rock song out today and this one really rocks!  It’s called Unfriend and it is a tribute to all the wonderful things about Facebook.  And when I say wonderful, I mean not wonderful at all.

I wrote the song a year or so ago and have played it live a time or two, but this marks the first time a studio quality version of the song is available.  I wrote the words and music, Steve Goodie did the arrangement and sang backing vocals.  In my completely unbiased opinion, this is one of those comedy rock songs that really rocks.

Pick up your digital download of Unfriend by Throwing Toasters right now at your favorite digital download location:

iTunes | CDBaby | Amazon.com | Bandcamp

As with Frankie, the song has been passed on to Dr. Demento.  If you feel so inclined, please give the song a request on his show.  You can do so by CLICKING HERE.  Please, just one request per week per person.  Thanks!

New Song! Frankie by Throwing Toasters/Mr. Grant

I have a brand new song out called Frankie and you can pick it up at on iTunes right now (CLICK HERE)!  It is also making it’s way through all the other digital pipelines as well.  I will update this post as they appear.

It has been some time since I’ve officially released a brand new piece of music, but that drought is over today as we welcome Frankie into the world!

This song is released under the Throwing Toasters catalogue of songs, but it could have easily be released as a new Mr. Grant song,  It has been a hit at my kid shows at Flappers and Libraries.  It is 100% kid and work safe!

It’s the first song I wrote on mandolin and it is based on a true story.  Honest.  No really.  You can read the story behind it on my blog by CLICKING HERE.

This track features the amazing instrumentation of Steve Goodie who plays, well, everything on this track.  As a bluegrass fan, I’m really in love with how it turned out and I hope you enjoy it as well.

I am, of course, sending the track to Dr. Demento for airplay on his show.  If you have a moment, why not request the song by CLICKING HERE.  PLEASE, just one request per week.

The best part about all this is that this isn’t the only new song that I have in the works.  A second song, Unfriend will be out shortly, followed by a brand new, never before heard on the internet, song called Everyone’s Invited!  More news on those tracks in the future, but for now, I AM enjoying Frankie and I KNOW you will!

Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Turkey Day 2014

Now it can be told! In July of this year, I got to puppeteer on the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Turkey Day Special. Shout! Factory, who sponsored the marathon, has begun putting the bumpers we shot online. You can see the first one here…

And in case the credits flew by too quick, here’s a freeze frame…

Never been more proud to be a Robot Technician in my life.  And I got to work with one of my creative idols, Joel Hodgson.  It was a dream come true.

Subscribe to Shout! Factory’s MST3K YouTube Channel to catch all the bumpers as they are released.  You can also check out some behind the scenes photos on Shout! Factory’s Facebook Page.  I also puppeteered on the new MST3K Turkey Day DVD set which you can pick up by CLICKING HERE.
