The tunes, the whole tunes...and nothing but the tunes

Audio

Balthazar's Dream

An instrumental electro-prog extravaganza  with maybe  just a hint of Pink Floyd-esque psychedelia.  It even has Monk chant...

...and yes - that opening "vocal" solo is a synth.  Jupiter-8, if you must know...

Audio

The Groove (Chiquita!)

A really catchy track from brother Duato, with an infectious shuffle beat guaranteed to take up residence in your head.  Kind of a Steely Dan meets Dirty Loops sort of vibe.  


Definitely worth a spin!

Audio

Night Is Right

Bob Dylan guitarist Stu Kimball and drummer extraordinaire Nick D'Virgilio join dB on keys and bass for this nasty little prog-flavored instrumental.

Audio

Wrap It Up

Built around an 808 groove lifted off an old cassette tape of the original version, this electro-funk tune was the "big finish" to the first FYM demo from 1984.  


It has been significantly upgraded with much better sounds, deeper production and some unreal players.  


Audio

Syzygy

Another one of our instrumental tunes - all synths, all dB.  We even recorded this one to tape for that authentic 70s sound.


Audio

Your Blue Eyes

A gorgeous old school soul ballad with a heavy "Muscle Shoals" vibe. Stellar vocals, ridiculously talented guest musicians...and a spectacular arrangement by Nashville legend Steve "The Prez" Nathan!!!!

Audio

The Poison Of Desire

This started as a grumbly little bass synth thing we came up with  back in 1985. Brother dB fell in love with the groove and wrote this song, adding the lyrics while driving in a truck to work a gig for Miles Davis in Minneapolis. 


We recorded it in the late 80's, but this version is better.

Audio

Don't Say Nothin'

Digital decoupage!  Serious audio manipulation with delicious intent to distribute copious amounts of extreme groove.

Audio

Wannabe Evil Genius

Brother dB throws lightning bolts around the studio in an attempt to see how many synths can be used on one tune.  

Prog fans - this one's for YOU!

Audio

The Light Dies Down On Broadway

Because what self respecting monk doesn't know their Genesis?

Audio

Smoker's Blues (feat. Cheshire Trout)

Even monks get the blues...

An oldie but a goodie - a nasty little love song for the tobacco industry.

Audio

Allegro con Chutzpah

Take a chance...play the tune.  You know you like the name...

Man On A Chain (1984)

Originally on the second FYM project, this track was recorded waaaaaaaay back in 1984 after hours at Daddy's Junky Music Store in Boston.   

Good times....

Audio

Me & The Mrs. (1986)

Just another "boy meets girl and lives happily ever after" story...


...or is it????

Audio

Come Together (1987)

The Lennon/McCartney classic, with a much funkier groove a la mid-80s Cameo.  

Recorded for the "Boston Does The Beatles" compilation double LP.

Audio

Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite (1987)

Yes, we did.  Late at night, and well into the morning.  


Too much fun...
