OLD HARLEY BREAKDOWN BLUES (2015 version)

Fast paced hillbilly tune about an old Hog breakdown and how the rider gets help from other riders. If you are a real biker of Harley, Indian, or English brands of the 1950-75 era, and in the mood for a chuckle, this "country swing" style song will bring a smile to your face. The image you see to the left is Randy's old 1951 EL, which he often worked on.

HOLLISTER 1947

Imaginery theme to The Wild One of 1953, the first outlaw biker film, starring Marlon Brando as "Johnny" and Lee Marvin as "Chino", based on incident in Hollister, California in 1947 where drunken thugs from competing gangs fought each other and took over the town. The sample runs just over a minute; the full version of the song runs about 6.5 minutes. The new shorter version simply called "Hollister" runs 3.3 minutes. Trumpet and saxophone played superbly by Ron Matthews. Motorcycle and police sound effects and narration by Mark Sepic, who also sings the part of the Sheriff whom the bikers lock up in his own jail. Sort of a jazzy documentary, reminds some people a bit of the Pink Panther movie theme from the sixties and others of music in Fellini films. One musician said it reminded him of Chet Baker, a great trumpet player with a sad life.

HOLLISTER

This is the 3.3 minutes version of Hollister.

Rusty Cadillac in Desert

Ode to America's Old Automobiles

Tribute to the American cars of the 1930's thru 1970's, and their importance to our culture and economy. Slightly melancholy Country style music.
1955 Mercury light green

The Mighty Mercury

Rock-a-billy tribute to the Ford Mercury, focussing on 1949 thru 1970's.
Grim Reaper 200 X 200 purple

GRIM REAPER

Heavy Metal or at least "Light Death Metal" song about Death which is always riding with us. Ends with sound of a coffin closing. Steppenwolf style guitar riffs played by Mark Sepic. Stylistically like Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Metallica etc.

I Want to Ride image

I Want to Ride (Let's Ride)

Bouncy, upbeat biker song in country-surfer style about a guy who wants to ride his Harley decker and his chopper.
Lonely Retiree

The Lonely Retiree

Country music song about a guy who has had many different jobs and finally retires to the country, alone. Much of the song refers to the cars, trucks and motorcycles Randy has owned in the past, and his present Pontiac Grand Prix, and the many jobs he has had.
Beer pitcher and mugs

Drinkin' Buddies

The world's new drinking anthem! Fun, catchy, upbeat. Background babble and tinkling glasses recorded at a Latino night club, a musicians' party and a blue collar bar. You will want to sing along after a few brewskies. It may remind you of Merle Haggard or Johhny Horton. For a Youtube video of about 2/3 of the song go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHJdhXXii8Y&feature=youtu.be

Dodge car with logo

The Dodge Name

Tribute to Dodge cars and trucks. The history from the beginning to now. References to the many models of Dodge cars and engines, racing wins and the Dukes of Hazzard. Rockabilly style.

Stress head

How Much Stress Can a Man Take?

subtitle: "Recession Depression"

(The Pontiac Grand Prix song.) Country music song about a guy who has had many different jobs and finally retires to the country, alone. Much of the song refers to the cars Randy has owned over the years. Catchy country song about a dude who gets laid off, creating financial and marital stress. Sad story but not a downer song - has a couple of lines which makes everyone laugh. Stylistically similar to Tennessee Ernie Ford, Johnny Cash or Waylon Jennings.)

Jenny and Jilly colored bars

JENNY and JILLY

1950's style hard rock with Jerry Lee Lewis piano. Mark Sepic plays the instruments on this one. This song was originally composed by Randy back in 1963 when he was still in High School, but the lyrics have been updated to make it more contemporary. Now its about a pair of exotic pole dancers who drive the audience wild.

Stuck in the City with a Country Heart

Rock-a-billy, country-blues with guitar and harmonica by Mark Sepic about how so many of us feel about having to live in a big city with its crime, noise and road rage, because of job or relatives, but longing to live in the country.

Cowgirl

The COWGIRL PROMENADE

Catchy, danceable country tune about an attractive cowgirl and square dancing. In the Billy Ray Cyrus "Achey Breaky Heart" style. Another lawyer-musician said it reminded him of Merle Haggard. Mark Sepic plays the guitar on this catchy tune.

Nuclear bomb blast

How the Hell

Reminiscent of CCR/ John Fogerty sounds, also a bit of a cross between an early 1960's folk "protest" song and the AC-DC style, sung in an angry style with political and ecological lyrics about how and why the world became in such a mess, blaming corporations and politicians and military leaders.

Texas horse rider

Long Way to Texas

Upbeat country rock about a cattle drive and a sexy cowgirl, en route to Texas.
Olds

Tribute to Oldsmobile

Easy to Love

Romantic pop music ballad, male female duet with Kim Doolittle

Hand Me Downs

Funny song about a poor kid who has to wear his older cousins' clothes once they have grown out of them, and gets fed up with the limited menu in the fridge, and having to listen to his parents' old fashinoed music.
The Argument

The Argument

A bouncy, humorous argument between a couple; mixture of Reggae and country guitar for the melody, while an increasingly drunken Mexican mariachi band plays the chorus. Duet with Naomi Tyrrell.
