Swagadelic Fertilizer Castle!!!


I am so happy to have been a part of this project. It was recorded by mastermind Dan Fox at Hi-N-Dry studio in Somerville, MA, which is owned and operated by friends of Mark Sandman and the band Morphine. Sandman’s old modified guitars hang all over the walls, and relics like pictures, posters, tour diaries, lyric sheets, and old instruments can be found in just about every corner. It was pretty special to play the bari sax in a space dedicated to Morphine. And if you don’t know why, please do yourself a favor and listen to them. More important to this session being amazing was the sheer amount of time and energy the 9 of us put into making it sound the way it does. That 4-day marathon session can only confirm- birds of a feather flock together.

Folk Music

A 10-song compilation of music made between the summer of 2009 and the summer of 2010. It is a snapshot of the stuff I was involved with during my senior year at UML.


The past year has been an exciting time for me musically. I had the opportunity to tour and record with the most devoted and talented musicians that I have ever met. The Goosepimp Orchestra is a group of 8 guys, but we would have no reason to make our music without our beautiful, passionate, helpful, and funky extended family. Thanks for your infinite support yall! Enjoy “Strap On,” from our latest Fallout Shelter performance on WUML, and “Take The Wheel,” from our self-recorded and self-released full length album The Biggest Bang. I also had the pleasure to help Nick get The Sinbusters off the ground, by drumming for a year and a half, and recording and mixing Prime Blowout, our 8 song EP. The songs here come from that album, recorded at Friendly Square in Medford and a few spots in Lowell. Late in 2009 I began recording spoken word poems written by Nate the Poet and adding music to them later. “The River Bank Bend” was recorded by a river in Colorado, and the music was added once back in Lowell. Underneath “Beauty,” the UML String Project can be heard warming up and tuning. I am also grateful to Brett Apitz for helping me record “Cherrapunji” and “Country Music” in the UML facilities, and to all the musicians who helped create this makeshift band that I call Folkin’ A. You will also hear two songs from a brand new project called President Soup. We did a version of “It Dont Mean A Thing” at Centro in May 2010, and an original tune called “Propaganda,” recorded later that month at the 119 Gallery in Lowell. Thanks to all the musicians that have shared their passion, and to you for listening.

Musicians: Seth Bailin (saxophone, vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboard, drums, percussion), Derek Hayden (drums, percussion), Mark “Big Daddy” Brack (vocals), Mike Dettore (percussion), Jeremy Wegerzyn (bass), Theresa Cleary (viola, violin), Elisabeth Hodge (bass), Ray Santana (trumpet), Mike Kaskiewitz (trombone), Whit Love (banjo), Nick Collela (guitar, vocals), Jen Brunelle (tambourine, vocals), Patrick Shaughnessy (casio keyboard), Joe MacFadzen (bass), Bob Greel (vocals, keyboard, percussion), Jon Albertelly (trumpet), Mike Cantor (guitar), Adam Pelletier (guitar), Dave Pelletier (bass), Josh Filgate (trombone), Joe Calabrese (drums), Jake Cacciatore (vocals, percussion), Curran Kelleher (guitar), Erik Jordan (bass), Nate Porteshawver (vocals), and the young kids of the UMass Lowell string project.

“Ants” EP is up.

It was the summer of 2007 and the heat was unbearable. A family (maybe I should say an army) of ants had found salvation in the basement of my Broadway St. apartment. At night I would overhear their plans to take over the house, then Lowell, then the world. We had to put a stop to this. They were everywhere. They were multiplying.
Neighbor Cody Rico recounted ancient myths of punk rock being the only reliable weapon against insect armies. So we plugged in the amps and set up the drum kit, and started composing the concept album that would exterminate our violent infestation.
ANTS is a 4-song EP with more strength than a cement truck full of pesticides. At the completion of the recording we went down to the basement to clean up and see what kind of damage we had done. There was not an ant to be seen. Either they got scared and ran off, or they dropped dead from the sheer energy of THE FORBIDDEN BEAT.
Would they have actually taken over the world had they lived? Maybe. Or are they still planning to take over the world by influencing the minds of young musicians? We will never know. From the moment that the ants disappeared, the basement was dubbed THE ANT CELLAR. Today the residents live up to the story by hosting live punk and hardcore shows for an all-ages audience.

Listen to the album that won (or started) a war with the ants.

Prime Blowout!

“Blowout status was officially achieved when I saw Nick crowd surfing while playing his guitar in the middle of our set.”

It was in the Fall of 2008 when I spoke to Nick Collela at a party about a new band he was starting with local guerrilla-poet Patrick Shaughnessy. Says he needs a drummer, so I say count me in.  We became The Sinbusters. After a year and a half of writing, performing, recording, bringing friends into our band, and having all sorts of fun, I realized I was unable to keep up with the momentous energy and output that these guys want to continue expressing. I had to back out of the band… So as a culmination of the music that we worked so hard on, and the beautiful friends we made along the way, we played a celebration show at PA’s lounge in Somerville, with Ladderlegs, The Kominas, and Venetian Grind on Thursday, April 8 2010.  Abe Taber was there to visually document the craziness that ensued, so thanks to him for the pictures.

Our new album is called PRIME BLOWOUT and you can hear it HERE. Thursday’s show was nothing short of a Prime Blowout, which was realized when Ladderlegs and The Kominas started wreaking havoc all over the drunken attendants of the show. Blowout status was officially achieved when I saw Nick crowd surfing while playing his guitar in the middle of our set. During our last song, Basim (The Kominas) and Mike (Sweatpants Symphony) approached me as if to invade my personal space… but what they really did was lift me in the air, along with parts of my drums, so that I rocked out suspended above the crowd.People gathered to support the drum set and help bang on cymbals. Guys, you have no idea how much fun that is. I will die happy.

I wish to extend thanks to many people who helped us out as a band along the way. Firstly, 119 Gallery is where we played most of our shows. It is an amazing space with progressive art always on display, and friendly people inside. Matt Studivan came to the show, and I handed him a CD that he recorded in his basement in Medford. Abe also lives there, and he takes lots of cool pictures at shows. We used his bass rig for the recordings, and tape machine for mixing. Thanks guys! Stephanie Lak lets us rehearse in her room (!!!) almost every week, and that is seriously generous. Brian Redmond mastered our CD at the Fuzzbox, which means he made it louder and more badass than it was in the first place. We played with a lot of bands along the way- Ladderlegs and The Kominas, thanks for sharing Thursday night with us. Ralph Eats Dynamite is still awesome. Streight Angular, I hope you win the Phoenix poll for best new band. The Big Sway, keep it fresh. Hetfield & Hetfield was there when we started- thrash it up!

Thank you to Nick, Patrick, Jen, and Joe for helping me play the craziest, loudest, most honest music I have ever made.

NEW RELEASE: Roseboom!

Waltham trio just finished their debut self titled album with Nice Bass Productions!
Packaged with original art by guitarist/vocalist Sam Mell, this 8-song release is a documentation of the past few years of their career.  I tracked everything to Logic Pro 8 in my basement, and contributed keyboard arrangements (and a solo!) to a couple songs.  In addition to tracking and mixing, this is the first project that I mastered.  Stream the album, and to collect original the artwork, pick up a copy at a local show.  Watch out for any future projects these guys come up with!
