I was just playing around with the embed feature from Soundcloud. "3-Finger Charlie" is a funky CD I produced, engineered, co-wrote, designed and performed on in 2001.
I just posted this cool video of "Break It Down" from our last show the UFD Site. Kicking ass Chicago style horn ending written by Mike Rotondi!
Oh yeah, that is me on drums. If you want a version for your iPod Video, click UFD-BreakItDown-02.23.2007.mp4. Or you can just watch it on YouTube.
I did the cover illustration for the new Urban Family Dog CD entitled "3-Finger Charlie". A nod to our bassist, Charles Chastain, who cut his finger off with a skil saw just prior to the release date. Related packaging images after you click.

My band UFD submitted our song Logan for the XMen movie. I made a really cool box, with comic book imagery, and did the song lyrics for the tri-fold CD insert. Also included was a version of the movie trailer with the music replace with Logan. The song was applauded for it's lyrical content and energy, though not accepted, because the movie was only using original score without vocals.
Open the lyrics above in another window and sing along!
And here's a re-cut of the theatrical trailer using Logan for soundtrack.
