Music of Yesterday: 2004-2005 and Song Calendar Vol. 1

Chris Daily – The Music of Yesterday: 2004-2005 – As part of the Teflon Beast family, musician, producer, and noted hermit Chris Daily suddenly and unexpectedly released the beginnings of a retrospective multi-volume archival project via his own Bandcamp. Going back to 4-track cassette tapes made between ’04 & ’05 when he was in his early teens, Daily has compiled a breathtakingly expansive work of a staggering pop prodigy. From riffing on a crude loop of music inspired by Madonna, “Everybody’s High But Me,” to imagining the standard “April in Paris” as if recorded for Pet Sounds using a mix of Midi and acoustical instrumentation, Daily’s pop prowess is one of the great unheard musical catalogs of the do-it-yourself set.

Chris Daily – Song Calendar Vol. 1 – Not content to be merely an “oldies” act, Daily has been working tirelessly this year on a massive holiday music project titled “Song Calendar.” The first volume of 2014’s holidays, some more well-known than others naturally, are now available in this set of esoteric pop music. Highlights include “It’s No Fun When You’re the Grammar Police,” “Blue Yodel,” and the wry “PI Song.” Stay tuned for more holiday related music on Teflon Beast and look for volume two in time for Christmas.

Geoff's ANXIOUS AMERICAN WORM


ANXIOUS AMERICAN WORM is a PDF book of comedy literature and funny word play. BUY ALBUM for access to book.

At one time this work was subtitled "Observational Humor" because the author considers the compositions to tangentially relate to passing observations made by the unnamed, possibly pretentious narrator.

**Excerpt:

"Enfant terrible, hardly terrible...what’s there to rebel against? What’s left to rage against? Sure, everything’s terrible, but we’re placated by the touch screen and the click. I’ve got a dry tank when it comes to the fuel needed to properly explode. Just send me a link to scan and I’ll behave. Kick in Lou Reed’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Animal - grinding teeth and nod in complicit disappointment. Smiling thru banal turmoil, the kind that is invented by those who perform the grind.

Hark the weary angel wings, withering from the inside out, make waves in the air no one can feel. Dilettante cherubim hack & fake, the night terrors flash/bubble up as the daylight burns. Closed eyes, slow air, meditation doesn’t seem to help. Got the twitch! Bait & switch! Golly turnaround - the terrible, terrible, terrible things."
