MahaloMusicBoston — Snowmen Are From Pluto

(from the More Means Less “track list”)

Was uploading some old tracks to a music catalog this morning and found this ‘ole number from a surf guitar project called Mahalo Music Boston — enjoy!

(the freak out at the end is especially nutty)

"Shoes that no man would want to wear…"

Can You Hear Me Now?

Way back when I was a little modgothpunkdweeb listening to the Bauhaus bootleg turned vinyl LP
(PresstheEjectandHandMetheTape)
http://www.discogs.com/Bauhaus-Press-The-Eject-And-Give-Me-The-Tape/release/729498
I never knew this is what Peter Murphy said at the beginning of “Kick In the Eye.”

(Maxell Breaks the Sound Barrier!)

My teenage head thought he was suggesting to the audience,”Let’s All Break the Sound Barrier!” which inspired me to turn up for many years after. I’m gonna’ stick with this memory ‘cause it’s way cooler than advertising!
Now that I’m all “growed up” I too can understand that as a working artist Peter Murphy just had to be “taking the piss” out of himself from the stage.
Nothing says we love you like cash
and I’m sure he was happy to have some.

Much Love and good health to you sir.
Let’s turn it up again!

PS The Man With the X-Ray Eyes
still freaks me out. a great record

PPS. or a well placed plug for Maxell cassette tapes? used for the recording, no doubt. I always heard Daniel Ash’s voice asking for the tape, but again… dream on kiddies. A band couldn’t have a cooler bullshit story. awesome business.

new song demo from The Ghost of Peter Murphy

Elizabeth, Why Do You Stay?

Elizabeth, standing on the stairs
her steps so lightly as if she isn’t there
somehow I can see her
many times I do not want to
she comes to me for solace

Elizabeth, why are you here?
you dropped in from another time
with your eyes still shining
but only I can feel you
Elizabeth, why do you stay?
Elizabeth, why do you stay?
no one knows

Elizabeth, why do you stay?
there is no one here to love you
they’ve all gone away
we’re only strangers

the night time comes
a season ends
tightly shuttered windows
cannot hold back the tears and memory

why do you stay?

Elizabeth, why do you stay?
there is no one here to love you
they’ve all gone away
we’re only strangers

laughter from another place
somehow I can touch your face
you smile so sweetly
but then I start to fade
we start to fade

The road back home, lost and lonely
no one to remember you
our faces have no names or meaning
although for now,
we are your family

Elizabeth, why do you stay?
there is no one here to love you
they’ve all gone away
we’re only strangers

the night time comes
a season ends
tightly shuttered windows
cannot hold back the tears and memory

Elizabeth, why do you stay?
why do you stay?

she comes to me for solace

awesome— she likes vinyl too

awesome— she likes vinyl too

I don’t know why I just thought of this, but one more reason to love YouTube and the many folks out there posting stuff.
This was a flexidisc from Dynamite magazine.

Here’s a far cooler recording from
Flexipop:

Introducing The Ghost of Peter Murphy

I wrote some songs for three imaginary boys
who get together and play music in the “goth rock” style.
It’s funny to think that back in the good ‘ole days when dancing meant exploding, we used to listen to bands like The Cure and Bauhaus and Joy Division and wear black clothing without putting a label on ourselves or our music. So many people were dying early in the 80s, I suppose we figured it was just the NYC artist uniform of choice back then and easy to find at flea markets and thrift stores.

With best wishes,

The Ghost of Peter Murphy
