METAPHOR | Startooted (2000)
A rock opera based on the gnostic myth.
Metaphor plays classic-style progressive rock. I sing and play
some acoustic guitar.
For many years I wrote and performed songs with John Kiniman.
Our songsare moody,
murky and totally unlike anything I've ever heard before. John
plays guitar and I sing.
GABERDINE AMOEBA | They
Tend to Unite (1988)
The lineup for this album was myself and Erik H., and is quite
outing, in my opinion. And due to Erik, quite funny indeed.
GABERDINE AMOEBA | Temple
of Dreams (1986)
An eclectic mix of computer and guitar-laden music by myself,
B.J. West and enigmatic Ed.
Most unlistenable in places. Most places.

MABRY | Who Knows the Mind of God? (1985)
An instrumental album, sometimes mello, sometimes bluesy. Part
Windham Hill, part electric stomp.

nonsense bonus tracks.

of my best songs.

Almost unlistenable recordings made on a standard tape deck my

UNDER CONSTRUCTION (1980)
Awful, unlistenable stuff recorded my Junior year in High School,
the first year I learned to play the guitar.
Hint: I hadn't learned to play it yet. B-side is questionable
Christian Comedy, a la Isaac Air Freight.
