…or just masterbNEVERMIND.
(Ahem.) I am pleased and also terrified to announce that myself, Kevin Murphy, and Mike Nelson have now formed a rock-n-roll supergroup along with Ted Nugent.* Introducing the RiffTones:
As you can see from the picture, the excitement of this new endeavor has driven me mad.
Now here’s an interesting and subtly-amusing anecdote about the origin of our group’s name. Imagine me with a knowing, wry smile, saying this:
- “We needed a name, really quickly. So I typed that.”
(…or potential, though not proven, masters? Not sure that works yet.)
In any case, we (ahem) RiffTones will be
getting crushed by competing with such song giants as Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm, actual professional touring musicians. Good God, what have we done?!?!
We’ll be given song challenges by Ken Plume, the evil genius at Quick Stop Entertainment, and very little time to produce these “songs.” It’s like Top Chef, in a sense, though producing nourishment for the soul…. Or on the flip side, poision for that very same soul. (And while Ken Plume is a very beautiful man, even he’s not as easy on the eyes as Padma.)
So check in frequently, and enjoy a nice big serving of Schadenfreude… on us!
(* Left the group right away when a Tule Elk wandered by, necessitating an immediate bow-hunt.)
MIKE ADDS: My prediction? Pain.
