released December 7, 1992

rome is burning (1992) was, in a way, the last 'heavy' rock band i had. it was also probably the loudest. people in front rows covered their ears. i probably, as a singer, didn't really belong in it either - my voice too thin, my 'rock moves' too dated (one leg up on the monitor, etc.) but it was fun, primarily because jane was in it (who made us laugh + who drank us under any table) + phil bynoe who, besides having 'thunder thighs', big as trees, + playing his tits off on a steel double bass, was The Cleanest Neatest OCD Ever. the trunk of his car was cleaner than my apartment. important to say also that mike mangini was in a lotta ways the 'star' of the band with a huge drummer/geek following. + julie (black lesbian) + me (white homo) made quite the modern couple on stage. the tunes below explain themselves for the most part, but i'd add that the studio work was recorded at normandy sound in rhode island by the incredible (famous) phil green. matt mckay played guitar + sang: on all 48 tracks - 28 for drum kit alone. as did phil, julie woods, jane + mike. i've included songs written by mike + jane, as well as by our new guitar player, neil goldberg. here's to the girl, mona lisa, it's not over, i would if i could, kick it,
rich kid, i want you back, matador, hunger strikes all live recordings from an 'industry showcase'
