Fourth solo record, stomatology
released in 2015 on Xtra Mile Recordings and Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club. The title, therapist
and title track, is from a Ukrainian toast that goes, “To us, the beautiful–and to those who disagree, may their eyes fall out.” That is pretty much how I feel about this album.

The band is Ara Babajian (Leftover Crack, the Slackers) on drums, Andrew Seward (Against Me) on bass, and Yoni Gordon on guitar. I mostly played guitar too. J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines) produced.

fnmg_store.5A melodramatic grab-bag of full-throated songs, prescription
stories, gerontologist
and days of wine & roses; shamelessly strident, stentorian and more than a little sentimental. “Major General” is rich with tales of punk-rock disillusionment, redemption, nostalgic regret, ruthless self-interrogations & reinvention, and defiant yet affectionate apologies. It’s a new look for the stylishly vaudevillian jack-of-all-trades with the Jimmy Durante and death’s-head-accordion tattoos. A new stop on a hobo’s-trail of intelligent, incisive hedonism that’s taken him through anarcho-circus punk, Balkan-gypsy, new chamber music, and anthemic classic rock. LIGHT BLUE VINYL.
