Here are samples from some of the bands I’ve been in throughout the years. There are many different styles so if you’re here looking for something in particular you should find it.

Tools of Ignorance

Tools of Ignorance is the band I’m probably still known best for. Kind of sad for the many years that have elapsed since (haha), but I’m still proud of everything we did. I think the live cuts have the energy we could never create in the studio. We were a live band!

YOTI soundboard mix.

Beneath the Stares

I was in Beneath the Stares for a short time but I felt tight right away with them. I'm now jamming with Lisa again which is just awesome!

Transparent Spiders

This band is one of my biggest regrets that we didn't get it off the ground. We had some good players and minds in this band. We couldn't find a drummer. This is the only piece of music we got a complete demo out of. Such a shame.

Lee Brothers (NSFW)

Lee Brothers

The Lee Brothers spawned in the early days of Fostex 4 tracks. Tom and I LOVE Monty Python so we decided all our stuff would hopefully be silly. Almost no subject is taboo so keep in mind if you’re overly sensitive try one of my other bands. We’ve been writing and recording on and off for almost 40 years. Some times Mark joins us for the silliness. We love to make fun of genres. Metal’s loftiness, Prog’s seriousness, Pop’s cheesiness etc… In the end if we make fun of it, it probably means we like it.

Pete & Yorg with Friends

Before Hyper Jive there was just jamming with different musicians. This was all improvised. We'd start with a riff and grow it. Came up with some cool stuff and some of this riffage ended up in our Children of Gaia epic.

Blues band jam

Blues Jam

We were 2 different bands needing what the other had and got together to jam one night. It never went any further with me. I missed Bill, the original drummer too much and didn't want to continue this project without him. Still, this isn't bad.
