Fear Is Not the Natural State of Civilized People

Released 2012
Urban Nerds Records
Released 2012
Urban Nerds Records
Electric improvised music, similar to 70's era Miles Davis, featuring the incredible Wadada Leo Smith on trumpet
NOTES
The title of this CD is a quote from the Burmese political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi (who was recently released again; for how long, we'll have to see) and the music is my comment on the US post 9/11.

Have We Met?

by 3 Squares

Released 2009
Urban Nerds
Released 2009
Urban Nerds
Sweet and sour. Dense and melodic. Angst and good-time feelings; all rolled into one.
NOTES
Cadence Magazine: "mostly this music is a series of distinctive musical conversations drawn out of very basic materials, a sound that gives this band its own identity"-Jerome Wilson © Cadence Magazine 2010. www.cadencebuilding.com ph: 315-287-2852

Groovin', riff-based, hard rock with some progressive elements and unique, Burrough-esque lyrics. Influenced by Clutch, Rollins Band, Frank Zappa, Miles Davis. Sounds like Alice In Chains or Henry Rollins.
NOTES
In April of 1995, Trey and Lyle began a collaborative songwriting experiment. A band of three had been assembled by Trey and they were seeking a voice. Lyle was in touch with the spirit Merkus Alkus, who sang. Thus began Muzzleloader.
