RETRO

Here are links to some old stuff, for a real blast to the past. The lower you go, the older it goes.

Noodle Muffin

NOODLE MUFFIN [2002-Present]

DrumWild joined Noodle Muffin in 2002, as their drummer for "Magnum Dopus." Since then, he's tracked guitar, fretless bass, piano, synth, trombone, banjo, lead and backing vocals, and anything else that makes a sound.

The Year of My Birth [2017]

The Year of My Birth [2017] - Solo Project
This is a collection of nine songs that I've written in 2017, which serve as cathartic overtures. The goal of this project is not to appeal to a commercial market, nor is it to harm anyone. There was also no mastering, and in fact the mixes might be rough, as are the performances. Those things do not matter.

This project is about my healing, and my own celebration of my re-birth.

Although I'm sharing these songs with anyone who wants to listen, I wrote and recorded these songs for myself. If someone else likes them, that's fine. I don't need the dopamine rush that social networking addicts get whenever they get a "like." And if someone does not like it, then I really don't care.

The album can be listened to on either SoundCloud or YouTube. Every song that has lyrics will have a link to the lyrics in the song or video description.

If you think that one of these songs is about you, then you might be right. If you're upset, then know that does not matter to me. The old me is gone, so now you get the new me.
