FRANK MAKAK ON THE METHADONES TRIBUTE ALBUM!

I'm very happy to announce that I'll contribute a song to the Methadones tribute album called "Sorry To Keep You Waiting: A Tribute To The Methadones" out on Infested Records on July 30.

The Methadones, for those who don't know, are a Chicago punk rock band fronted by Dan Schafer (Dan Vapid And The Cheats, Riverdales, The Mopes, Noise By Numbers, Screeching Weasel, The Queers, Sludgeworth) that called it quits in late 2010.

Among the other bands that will pay tribute to the Methadones are the Manges from Italy, The Parasites and DeeCRACKS.

I have recorded the song "I Believe" in March especially for the album, which will be available for pre-order friday June 14th through Infested Records. You can find all the informations you need on the Infested Records Facebook Page.  Dan Schafer will sign the first 25 copies, so be quick!

Finally, a big thanks to Chris of Infested for his support and enthusiasm. He definitely put all his heart into this comp, so check it out!

WHITE WIRES COVER!

Hey! I haven't said anything in a while and I thought I'd post my most recent recording! This is a song by The White Wires, a powerpop/garage/rock'n'roll band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada! I could write a long message and talk for hours, but really, it's just mighty catchy rock'n'roll. Enjoy!


I'm also told that the White Wires themselves shared the video on their facebook page! Big thanks to them!

A TRIBUTE TO WOODY GUTHRIE

Woody Guthrie would've been 100 years old in 2012. To commemorate Woody's Centennial, I would like to post a version of my favorite song of his, "Along In The Sun And The Rain", which he wrote in the 1940's.
I have recorded my version of it in 2006 - and it's my humble tribute to not only an American icon, but a true folk music pioneer.

I DON'T WANNA FIGHT TONIGHT

So, Christmas is around the corner and I decided to record a version of my favorite christmas song: "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight)" by the Ramones. The song was written by Joey Ramone and originally appeared on their 1989 album "Brain Drain". Look for the video - 1989 at its finest!

Here's my version! Hope you like it!
