Listen

dROPPIN' kITTENS (2008)

Odd percussion, electronic bleeps, and weird guitar collide with musique concrete to flesh out the story of bOMBERcAT - the incredible cat that saves the world by flying a bomber for the Allies (whoever they are).

Margaret's Storm (2009)

Some blues and dark Americana with a faintly nautical theme.

Attacks with Fire Arrows (2010)

I started on February 1, 2010 with nothing but the title and the album art...then tried to hammer an album together. It's short, but it's 10 songs!

BIOGRAPHY

I did last year's RPM Challenge under the nom de guerre "BomberCat". This year, I'm feeling the need to branch out yet again...to record my second album under the new name "Hoodoo Mud Cat". I want to get away from some of the odd electronic stuff and stick with blues and dark Americana. Some tracks from my first Hoodoo Mud Cat can be found at myspace.com/hoodoomudcat
