Ridiculous Dream

Sometimes a sleeping person's environment influences their dreams. Okay, so my cat jumps up on the bed early in the morning and puts her whiskers in my face so I will get up and feed her. I think this was…

Ooh... Crunchy!

I just read an interesting book about the rise and fall of "classic rock", Twilight Of The Gods by Steven Hyden. The author has an amusing writing style and makes a good case for leaving the dinosaurs of rock to…

Surf Tiki Halloween

One of my favorite scary stories from middle school English class was "The Monkey's Paw" by W. W. Jacobs. A creepy talisman from an exotic land causes badness. Imagine my delight when a Tiki Bar opened in Springfield called... Yes…

Night Time Fun

El Borko Surf! has one more show this month... at The Monkey's Paw tiki bar in Springfield. We are looking forward to a night of sleazy monster music and energetic surf rock bay-bee!

One more thing... I missed my Friday…

Endless Summer

It finally started raining here. I hope it rains a lot. We need it. As the leaves begin to fall, I practice guitar and look at the kids playing at the school across the street. They don't mind the weather…

The Zoo

I put a new song on the website music player, down there... at the bottom of the screen... called "The Zoo". I wrote it a few years back with completely different lyrics, which I decided weren't that good. Here is…

Why Music?

Nonetheless, this is our life, and it means a lot to us. Not…

The Show Might Go On

I have two shows this weekend, one with Miller Brothers at Friendly gardens Friday night and one with El Borko Surf! at Viking Braggot Brewery Saturday afternoon at 4:00. I say "I hope" because things are shaky here as in…

Surficana!

After I released Surf Monster five months ago, I felt like I had more to say. So I said it by making another El Borko album, Surficana. This new record has seven surfy songs and no singing. These songs explore…

Music by Rose

My older daughter Rose started out on ukulele as a kid. She figured out guitar on her own and has been writing songs for a few years now. She came by yesterday and we did some recording. I was so…
