The Rubrics blur the boundaries between Appalachian traditional music, science fiction and the ""what if?"", all expressed through odd "instrumental combinations". Having wrapped up work on their soon to be released CD "Monkey Cat Blues", the band is on a much needed sabbatical in Winona Minnesota currently doing critical research for future work.
Loving Paradox (remix)
Still another song about relationships
Euell Gibbon's Last Sex Manual (live)
Have you ever wondered what a live Rubric performance is like? Recorded in February 2006 at the Winona Art Center's Songwriting Symposium.
Circus Dance Processional
This was written for a musical that never happened which was probably a good thing.
Don't Blame Me (It's the Market)
This short tongue-in-cheek political satire was written after a long discussion with my students on economic globalization and the effects of Dave Kingman's baseball career. (I kid you not)
Hanuman Visits the White House
This is the Rubrics' last chapter in their Hindu song cycle.
This song answers the musical question of what type of music would H.P. Lovecraft have produced if he had been an oldtime banjo player?
Rover the Jazz Bubble
Have you ever wondered whatever happened to those giant bubbles when the Prisoner TV series was cancelled? I thought not!
God Bless America (God Bless Iraq)
I wrote and recorded this a few years ago, just before America's invasion of Iraq. I don 't know whether I'm the same person since I wrote it.
Green Men in the Dark/June Apple
I've read too many issues of the National Inquirer.
Random Acts of Plumbing
This was the first song my taisho koto wanted to sing after coming out of the box.
Why is Krishna Blue?
The second song in The Rubrics Hindu song cycle.
The Rubrics like to take traditional numbers and interpet them in a different way. This song is our first attempt at such a rendition.
Kiss Me...I'm Dead
what would the world be like if necrophiliacs had their own holiday?
I'd suggest you listen to this one on a late winter's day, driving up Highway 61 (of Dylan fame) along the Mississippi, watching the bald eagles flop along the ice.
