this was part of an experiment i called the "single of the month club" which ran from january 2009 to december 2011. the goal was to release a new single every month for 3 years, 36 singles total. most of them are older songs that were never properly recorded and released in the past. the working title for the first volume of the project is "coulda shoulda woulda". the working title for the second volume is "state of the art lo-fi". the working title for the third volume is "new to you".

i also released these songs as part of the mullymusic "free or pay what you want" program. that's right. you're welcome to download them and listen to them. if you like what you hear and feel inclined to make a "donation" you are more than welcome to. you can also purchase the completed albums at itunes. you can share them with friends, (but i'd prefer that you told them to stop by mullymusic.com and download their own copy, just so i have a better idea of how many of you are enjoying this.)

the songs are free to download, but i retain all the rights to them. they are not to be used for commercial gain or as part of any production or other entity without my permission.

this section is part of a 4-track demo project. i'll add more as i get around to re-mixing and re-mastering. there's a few songs that wound up on our first album; some that were going to wind up on our unfinished second release; and some that were only put to tape in these sessions. the "free previews" are 30-seconds. enjoy. click on any of the tabs above for more info.

this next section is where you can find mullymusic 4-track demos and outtakes.
i'll be adding to this from time to time, so check back to see what's new. click on any of the tabs above for more info.

this is "already gone (demo)". this is an early demo. the song hasn't changed much over the years, except now the vocals go up on the second verse. here they don't. the arrangement is mostly the same. keyboards have changed. new parts have been added and the echo keys are out. maybe they'll come back someday. this is a 4-track production, but you get the idea. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

already gone (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

this is "a song for you (demo)". another track from the summer of 1988. remixing and remastering still couldn't fix the giant reverb on the backups but it did get rid of most of the surface noise. due to the limitations of my equipment in those days, most of my 4-track demo stuff was recorded with the effects printed on the tape instead of added in mixdown. as a result, the quality sometimes suffers and there's little that can be done to change it after the fact. still, the energy is there and the point gets across well. of note: the backing vocal on the m8 done without punch-in or altering tape speed. one of my favorite parts. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

a song for you (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

"believe" * coming soon

this is "down (demo)". this is the first upbeat demo of this song. the very first demo was me and an acoustic. this version was more to get the idea across of what to expect with other instruments and to see if there were any keyboard parts looking for a home. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

down (demo)



next up is "hear them crying (demo)". this was a somewhat conscious attempt to write a song with a seasonal feel. the intro is from a keyboard riff that i had used in another song from another band years prior. it was only used once there and was something i had always liked. it seemed too good of a little riff to just discard. so, i looped it in my sequencer to find a nice patch for it and just took it from there. the toughest part of the whole thing was recording the guitar solo. writing it was easy and it fell into place nicely, but i usually leave my soloing to the keyboards. the idea comes across though, and i'm a better player now so it should be easier when this gets re-done. : )

this demo version is from a 4-track analog machine and shows some signs of wear and tear. it is just a demo and i plan to re-record it one of these days to fix some issues brought on from running most everything through a chorus effect. this "free preview" is 30-seconds. the full version is available for purchase via the second link below. enjoy.

hear them crying (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

this is "hold on". another track from '88. this one hasn't changed much over the years. the arrangement stayed the same. the drums expanded a bit and i added a couple of little keyboard touches. other than that, it's basically the same. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

hold on (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

next we come to "mutant tribe". it is one of the most bizarre songs i've done over the years, which is saying a lot. this was the first full demo of this song. subsequent renditions never quite captured what i was after like this take does. all done on an old analog cassette 4-track machine. it is actually a 6-track production. the first 4 tracks (drums/bass/keys/forwards and backwards vocals) were bounced to 2-track stereo then brought back into the 4-track to add another 2 tracks of keyboards, (and the telephone.) there's a lot going on under the surface. the tribal drums were created from a custom mully patch on a roland sh-101 keyboard and were the inspiration for much of this piece. then i used hi-hat and cymbals from a boss dr. rhythm machine for enhancement. i've tried to reduce most of the surface noise along the way, but this was recorded in 1984 and shows the limitations of the machines i was using at the time. also, there was no use of midi on the recording. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

mutant tribe



this is "over & over (demo)". this one has been in a couple of different band configurations. always went over well. rocked out the most with small world, though i did miss playing the keyboard solo live, so it was sequenced and i played the guitar to keep it sounding full. this is the mully 4-track demo version. it still rocks. fun fact: this is my dog's favorite keyboard solo. see if you can figure out why. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

over & over (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

this is "someone (demo)". one of the few songs played with small world that had a guitar solo. the extra guitar ramblings here were just me being silly and trying out some ideas. some of which manifested into keyboard parts, but those aren't here in this version. the arrangement is the same for this mully 4-track version. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

someone (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

this is "south side rain (demo)". the main riff was originally written on guitar and my intent was to record it that way at some point. then i created this keyboard patch and it just sounded right for it. i added some more lyrics and the rest just fell into place and it became what it wanted to. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

south side rain (demo)



this is "take me away". this particular song has had an odd life. it started with a keyboard patch i was creating on a korg poly 800 back in 1992. when you played a note, it had this echo effect, though the keyboard didn't have an echo built in nor was it being run through any effect unit. it was just the way the vcf was responding. it was very cool and almost hypnotizing. i started fooling around with some simple chords trying to think of a use for it. then i remembered this riff i had from another song that i had taken the time to learn how to play in reverse. so, i started playing those chords on the echo patch and recorded it into my trusty alesis mmt-8 sequencer and let it loop for a bit. then i started playing the backwards riff over the echoing chords on my roland juno-106 and it sounded really good together. so, i got that going in the sequencer as well. next was building a simple drum beat to give it some momentum, (boss dr-550 mkii.) basically, what you hear of the song as it starts and moves forward, is a representation of how i built it, piece by piece. maybe not exactly, but close enough. the end is just the de-construction to bring things back to the beginning.

presented here in two different formats, the first version is the full take with keys and drum machine and vocals. it was recorded live without overdubs, so some of the levels are not what they should be, but you get the idea of what i was going for. i've tried to clean-up most of the noise in mastering, but you can still hear some here and there. the complete runtime is about 9 1/2 minutes. there's also a radio-friendly edited version that skips the intro/outro which clocks in at just under 5 minutes. there is only one "free preview" of 30-seconds for this version, since they are basically the same song.

the second version is just vocal and guitar and it too was recorded live without overdubs, but that was a couple of years later. if you listen closely, you can hear the pick strums from the guitar being picked up by the vocal microphone, so you can tell there are no edit points. i just sweetened it up in mixing and mastering with some reverb and chorus. one song; two different perspectives. enjoy.

take me away (vocal/keyboards/drum machine)



take me away (vocal/guitar/one take)



"that song" * coming soon

"too late" * coming soon

this is "try and try (demo)". it was originally written on guitar back in the days while i was still learning to play. presented here on keyboards, it gets the point across well. it always had a sort of creepy vibe to it, but was one of those things that just needed to be put down on tape. the weird sound at the intro is a lighter being flicked near the microphone which is being fed through a delayed reverse reverb. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

try and try (demo)



"understand" * coming soon

this is "wake up world (demo)". yet another song that found it's way into the small world setlist but never got a proper recording. the arrangement here is the same, as this song hasn't changed much from this 4-track demo version. highlights: the slapback echo on the high-hats; the backing vocals on the break; the outro keyboard riff. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

wake up world (demo)



also available as part of the mullymusic "single of the month club"

next is "whyd u thro r luv away (demo)". this is what happened when i made a humorous attempt at writing a song in the style of early prince. the original demo runs much longer than this trimmed down version, because the music came first and i didn't know what it was going to turn into. so, i planned ahead and just had fun with it. guest appearance on rhythm guitar by he-man; lead guitar, vocals and everything else by mully. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

whyd u thro r luv away (demo)



this is "words i say (demo)". this is one of the earlier vesions, though not the earliest. more keys on this than what made it to the small world cd and also includes an off-the-cuff guitar solo, which was really just me being silly and seeing how fast i could play and sort of make it sound like it was for real. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

words i say (demo)



this is "world goes round (demo)". not sure exactly how many demos of this song i've done. most of the core ideas where there at the beginning. other versions may show up here at some point. this will do for now. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

next up is "you never loved me (demo)". this one dates back to the summer of 1988 and was part of a prolific creative period. this particular demo was done on an old analog cassette machine and initially was just going to be to test the arrangement. the acoustic guitar was a throwaway, which is why it distorts in spots. it stayed because i really liked the strums on the chorus and never got around to doing it over. the musical section after the second chorus was later fleshed out with some nice keyboards that are not present on this demo, (but are on other recordings of this song, including ones done with small world that may show up around here later.) i've tried to smooth out some of the rough spots where possible, but the hiss on the breakdown is still there to some extent, (it was much worse before i remastered, twice. such is the world of demo recording.)

this "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

i'll be adding to this from time to time, so check back to see what's new.

this is "acid rain", from a series of extended recordings done in 1987. basically they were designed as an exercise in improv and variation. set-up involved pre-programming several bars of drum loops with some basic keyboard bass ideas. i would also scope out a few patch numbers to reference during the recordings so as to make it less likely to get stuck. usually whilest setting up i would get some starter ideas to run with and be good to go.

recording was done without stops and without punch-ins, (except "transition", which due to some technical issues had to be stopped/re-started at a couple of points during the recording.) everything you hear is done in real-time. no overdubs. sometimes there are sour notes as i was exploring. other times it was pure magic. moods range from calm to creepy to spacey to just plain weird and back again. some may find it enjoyable to use for meditation. others may just want to relax, turn on the lava lamp and enjoy the ride.

gear : roland tr-606 drum machine synced to a roland sh-101 synth through the gate trigger. this was pre-midi days, at least for me. most arpeggios done on a korg poly 61 keyboard, not synched to the drum machine. there's a casio mt-45 in there as well. delays/echos are from a roland sde-1000 rack unit, which allowed for switching to half-time during recording. performance captured onto one track of a fostex x-15 series ii 4-track cassette recorder. the tape it was recorded onto had one 45-minute performance on each of it's four separate tracks. recorded individually.

due to the extended run-times of these selections, i've included longer free previews.

this is "death march". one of my first attempts at classical style. written for cello, violin and flute. this was the piece that set me off and racing in the direction of the "hybrid suites". comments have ranged from "alfred hitchcock-like" to "creepy" to "moody". you decide. this is the original 3-track demo. i've tried to clean up the noise as much as possible. it really needs to be re-recorded, but this will do for now. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

death march (demo)



this is "dna dancers". this is just one of several hundred little instrumental thingys i've done over the years. just capturing ideas. sometimes flawed; sometimes magical. you decide. no overdubs and no midi. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

dna dancers



this is "fx process 87". started out as just fx process, then as you might guess, in 1987 i added to it. the original was recorded without overdubs to 2-tracks. keyboards, bass keys, and drum machine. i always liked it, but it seemed incomplete, so in '87 i added another track of keys and a track of guitar. it's moody and experimental with a revolving theme. it goes from conventional to cyberdelic and back again. clocking in at 20+ minutes, it carries a slightly higher price tag than most singles, but at 1.99 it is tough to beat the price. listen to it while meditating or walking or just relaxing with the lava lamp.

fx process 87



this next selection is from an on-going project of mine called "hybrid suite". it is a very neo-classical endeavor that i started working on in 1989. there are several movements. i'll post them all in this section as i get to them.

this clip is from the "2nd movement". it has been edited from it's original runtime of 4:25 for this 30-second "free preview" clip.

hybrid suite - 2nd movement



this clip is from the "11th movement". it has been edited from it's original runtime of 6:45 for this 30-second "free preview" clip.

"particles" is a little thang i wrote whilest playing with echo. enough said. the "free preview" is 20-seconds. enjoy.

particles



this is "quest of the lost city". this was, as far as i recall, the very first multi-track recording that i did. at the time, i didn't own a conventional multi-track machine. instead, it was constructed by recording onto one analog cassette recorder, then playing the tape back into another tape recorder while recording the next part at the same time. etc. there are approximately 10 layers of music and sound effects. everything you hear was created on a synthesizer. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

this is "solution". just a little ditty. was testing some new patches. the "free preview" is 30-seconds. enjoy.

this little thang came about from testing some new toys. sounds sorta like a cyberdelic prince beat. currently being used as the intro/outro theme for the mullymusic show on bunkradio.com

this is "transition", from a series of extended recordings done in 1987. basically they were designed as an exercise in improv and variation. set-up involved pre-programming several bars of drum loops with some basic keyboard bass ideas. i would also scope out a few patch numbers to reference during the recordings so as to make it less likely to get stuck. usually whilest setting up i would get some starter ideas to run with and be good to go.

this next piece is called "tribal mutations". it goes back quite a ways. it started out one day when i was bored and decided to play the main bass riff from another song of mine (mutant tribe) in reverse. it had a cool vibe to it so i looped it in the sequencer of a roland sh-101 (pre-midi days, folks,) and threw down a basic foundation on track one of an old analog 4-track cassette recorder. the other three tracks were used for layering and experimenting and the piece just grew into what it wanted to be. it's a bit dark, but as grandpa mully would say, "i think you'll like it." the "free preview" here is just the first 30-seconds. the complete runtime is 7:23 and is available for purchase via the second link below. enjoy.

tribal mutations



this is "unfinished synthony +2". it originated as a live-to-2-track experiment. roland tr-606 drum machine on one track, two casio keyboards and roland sh-101 keyboard bass on track 2. the keyboard bass and drum machine are synced through gate/trigger, but there is no midi involved. the "+2" came about some time later when i wanted to enhance and expand some of the original ideas. the added tracks support the main theme and at other times go off and explore new things. clocking in at over 20 minutes, this selection is a bargain at 1.99 the "free preview" is 60-seconds. enjoy.

this piece is "voodoo". some of you may catch the 5/4 time on the intro/change. the riffs came about one day when i was playing with delay and it grew out of that. again, this was done on an old analog 4-track cassette. the playing sounds more complicated than it is. once you know the rhythm and work it with the delay, it is quite easy. it's another slightly dark piece, but it has a lot of energy. there are a few different delay tricks going on, but it's all stuff that can be done in real-time (meaning it's not studio magic.) the "free preview" here is 30-seconds. full runtime is 2:40 and is available for purchase via the second link below. enjoy.

covers of other people's songs :

sinead o'connor - black boys on mopeds.

this track was recorded live to a 2-track cassette machine. guitar on one channel and vocal on the other. i've tried to clean it up in the remastering, but the source material was very noisey due to the limitations of the available equipment used for recording.




depeche mode - but not tonight.

a fairly traditional cover of a song that became more fun as i unraveled what made it tick. lots of interesting synth parts intermingling and coexisting.




inxs - don't change.

one of my favorite songs from one of their best albums.




here's how the conversation would have gone....

fan: so, mully, what's up next ?

mully: well, i'm going to start work on something i've been thinking about for a couple of years.

fan: cool ! what is it ?

mully: i'm going to cover a rush song.

fan: awesome ! i love rush !

mully: me too.

fan: what song are you going to do ?

mully: i'm going to do "entre nous", a cappella.

fan: (confused silence.)

mully: (smiles.)



rush - entre nous. this track was recorded using only my voice. everything you hear was done without digital alteration or manipulation, (no auto-tune either. that would be blasphemy.) the only effects used throughout the recording are some limiters, to balance vocal levels, and some reverb on the overall mix. each part was sung twice for a natural chorusing texture.

fleetwood mac - go your own way.

this is one of those songs that i always liked. was watching a bbc documentary about albums and heard this come on. was instantly reminded what a great song it is and was inspired to figure it out and record it. but also decided to present it in a slightly unconventional way.




the beatles - help.

2015 marked the 50th anniversary for the song and movie "help". this is my slightly modern take on it.




the cars - moving in stereo.

another old analog 4-track cassette recording.



the human league - seconds

this is an old 4-track analog cassette demo i did many years ago. maybe one of these days i'll re-record it.



the beatles - tomorrow never knows

another old analog 4-track cassette recording.

nine inch nails - we're in this together.

this is my re-interpretation of one of my favorite nin songs. it was recorded live to digital multi-track. everything you hear is being done without overdubs or edits. drums were pre-programmed, but all keyboards are being played by me while singing in real time.

nick lowe - (what's so funny 'bout) peace love and understanding

most people know and love the upbeat elvis costello version. as do i. so, instead of competing with that, i offer you this.

dido - white flag

i've always liked this song. never saw the video back when it came out. saw it many, many years later when i went looking for a version to listen to for this recording. never realized there was a creepy stalker vibe going on in the lyrics.

this was recorded during a time when i was toying with the idea of releasing an all a cappella covers album. who knows, i still might. don't dare me.

coming soon
