Stunt Man


It’s been such a close call; it’s been such a close call.

This shit is getting heavy; this shit is getting heavy.

Picaso is dead so who can get the art ready.

Though I tried to right my story; tried to sing my song.

I had not-got, any reader.

Nor no one to sing along.


Mental floss removes the plaque.

From a beaver’s bites in my right calf.

Study good but study lying.

Stuck in school: cheating, crying!!

Verse 1:



Chorus: (punk rock)

Some day I’ll get away.

I’ll have a total change.

I’ll be a stunt man.

Tan from the sun ray.

Verse 2:

DON’T!! WANNA BE!! ANOTHER (uni-sylabic) WHORE!!

NO , NO!! you can’t draft me for oil war... The Master Stunt Man Is Now Here. You’ll see me in movies… every year.

Pre-chorus: panicy

Oh-wreroah! Richard can’t u see! Theres more more more (broadway meets metal) to bee-leev than money. HUEAGH!! Oh-wreroah Richard there’s more to retrieve. You say sonny-boy I see your aspiration. But before you get it all, you’ll push a broom, sweep a kitchen, can’t cross the nation, stuck at a sandwhich station!!!


Some day I’ll get away.

I’ll have a total change.

I’ll be a stunt man.

Tan from the sun ray.

Repeat chorus

Some day I’ll get away.

Ill have a total change.

I’ll be a stunt man.

Tan from the sun ray.


Crooked cracks seethe through gnarly trees, You’r spell blown to me, subtly cuz you live in her debris.

Pennyless promotions are finding thee.

One fine day false idols will die.

Even though you blessed a mess to sell it.


Some day I’ll get away.

I’ll have a total change.

I’ll be a stunt man.

Tan from the sun ray.


Some day I’ll get away.

I’ll have a total change.

I’ll be a stunt man.

Tan from the sun ray.

Verse: Gotta few homies, one of ‘em is tim.

Starting to think I got to flake on him.

Nobody knows

How I got poked by that rose! (weirdo style)

The plant makes my problems decompose.

Chorus slightly altered:

(Slower this time)

I finally got away.

I got a total change.

I am a stunt man.

Tan from the sun ray

Wow... I have nothing better to do than read this idiot's blog.

Wha sup homies.  Donald Neu here.  Hope you all found the title amusing. 

I had a session with Psychodelix and recorded some great stuff for the song "Moral Mutilation" a song which will be on the COSMIC CRYSTAL EP.  When we release that you should buy one.  Heck you should buy twenty. 

Pretty much.  I'm thinking I should sneek some Beck guitar licks into the Psychodelix performance (August 12 @ Paynesville Gazebo Park 7:00)

My solo project "Stunt Man" has kinda just sat on the back burner... which sucks.  I've been chasing this specific style that I want to get in a recording and I havent had the time and energy to attain it.  However I've made progress and I'm being supported in my "magical mystery tour"

My friend Mark AKA Moxxie has started listening to a band called Hard Core Super Star and I think I'll have to check them out too.  They seem pretty sweet.

This song played on the radio at work and I thought it was pretty cool.  Probably old news to most happenin' youth but whatev'  I think it's fun music.

modified tri-tone

The tri tone (known in the dark ages as the devils interval) is a fun thing to use in music. 

normal tri tone C, F#, high C

I like this varriation & I just came up with it.  Just take the top note down a half step.

C, F#, B.

I am a very "feeler type" musician.  I get a lot of my ideas from patterns go through my head and the feel of my hands playing the instrument.  It applies to every instrument I play.  On the all the instruments I play I try to shake things up / make alterations that make the playing more interesting for me and also affect the audience differently.

I also like to do these "mixed intervals".  There is probably a better name for them.  Note 1a may move up one half step from note 2a, and in the same chord progression note 1b may move up three half steps.  I don't know if that explaination works at all.  In another way of looking at it: C major to D sus2.  The interval between the root notes of the chords is different that the interval between the high notes of the chords.

the tab explaination is probably the simplest:

e 0  5
b 3  5

Oh, and any Hot Hot Heat album is worth your time to listen to, especially if you play guitar.  If you play synth you should listen to the Hot Hot Heat album "Scenes One Through Thirteen"  and listen to any Wolf Parade Album.

Let the bass drum boom like and underground justice, music from our dendrite trussice!!!

My keyboard set up is as follows: Casio Privia: a weighted key keyboard with excellent piano imitation and multiple tones and effects/possible alterations.  Yamaha Portasound (mini keyboard) PSS-130; incredible battery life and easy to take anywhere.  Yamaha PSR-77 synthesizer.  This one is very light, which is nice; it also features some rad old-school sounding voices.  Hohner student 32 melodica.  Light; sounds like a cross between an accordian, harmoica, and bag pipe.  You blow into this one, its like a breath powered organ! (so no worrying about batteries folks!)  Shoenhut toy piano.  Sounds like "a couple steps up from "little tikes" xylophone.

I'm gunna learn this song by Jove!

When I was younger:

When I was younger I used to be great at building inventive lego ships and other inventions.  I also used my creativity and common sense analytical inventiveness to build a catapult that could shoot bouncy balls into a special basket as well as build kinex cars to crash-duel my best friend, showing who could build the toughest car.

Here's some guitar work:

e 0 2 0 3 7, 0 2 0 3 7; 0 2 0 7 3, 0 2 0 7 3; 0 2 0 3 7      , 0 2 0 3 7       , 0 2 0 3 7      5 7 6 7
b                                                                                3 7,                3 7 ,               3 7

play this dissonant chord on a heavily distorted guitar

b 4
d 3

The answer to life, the universe and everything...


Get psycho to our music about nickles, dimes, and anything that rhymes!!!

It's been a good day.  I pretty much worked on laying meat at short stop restarant and after that chilled to some of the music I helped create with the friends I am so blessed to have: Mark "Moxie" Anderson and Erick "Air Bear McTwix" Wisted!!!  Psycho for life; and psycho for christ!!!  May God bless your day!

My Drum Tabbing System

DRUM TAB C*=crash symbol / HH=high hat / Sn=snare / HT= high tom / MT= mid tom / FT= floor tom / B= bass drum








Most drum tabs are done in a different format...  But whatever this is the format I came up with.
