It Was 40 Years Ago Today: Cars by Gary Numan

It Was 40 Years Ago Today! Cars by Gary Numan I was but a mere twelve-year-old kid in a small town when Cars was released on August 21, 1979. It's a mystery where I may have heard it for the first time, but it changed my perspective on music permanently. The striking intro of warbly synth sounds abruptly broken by a snare drum, followed by the unforgettable sound of the Polymoog's Vox Humana patch still has such a deep impact on me even after 40 years!While I recall having heard synthesizers used in music and soundtracks prior to Cars, this......

Before After Again: A New Music Side Project

Before After Again: A New Music Side Project

Before After Again is a new music side project I am working on with Jason Whitcomb. Jason is also one of the Bile Brothers from our Cambium project. Before After Again is influenced by electronic, darkwave, coldwave, and post-punk sounds, just to name a few genres.

Jason and I started working on music together a couple of years ago. Since then, we have accumulated quite a few songs in our catalog. Some of our songs ended up on the Cambium album released by Overlook Hotel Records, while others are part of The Replicon Project. While we currently do not have a release date set, I have a feeling that there is already more than enough material for a full-length album of Before After Again songs.

To give you an idea of what it sounds like, have a listen to “Allison’s Gone” first. It represents the darker side of the band’s sound.

“Akron” reveals our heavier side that incorporates guitars into the mix.

I will post an update as things move forward. We have really enjoyed working on all of this new material and hope you like the new songs!

Thanks for listening,
Kevin
