Piles Needs Our Help [Aug. 1st, 2016|11:17 am]

Long time fans may remember seeing the name Steve Fernino, aka "Piles," on the credits of every Sudden Death release from the beginning. Steve has been a good friend since high school and helped out mostly behind the scenes with my earlier work.







Steve needs our help. A little while ago he began feeling ill and after a couple doctor appointments they told him he could not return to work. The doctors ordered him to have a series of tests on his heart but his insurance company is insisting that he pay for fees and his co-pay up front. However, since he can't work he can't afford those payments, which means he can't have the tests and get the treatment he needs which could ultimately save his life.



At the behest of me and several of his other close friends he has set up a GoFundMe page to raise the money to cover his deductible. Once he pays that he should be able to get the tests he needs and the insurance should start kicking in. He is not looking to raise a ton of money. He just needs $2750 to cover his deductible. If you can help him out please do so.



Click here for his GoFundMe page.



I have made "Hangnail" this month's free song of the month. "Hangnail" is the song that most prominently features Steve on vocals. He is the other vocalist on the song alongside me.

The free download links on the Music page have been fixed. Now you can actually get the free downloads that you've paid so much money for!



Sorry for the technical difficulties, and thanks to Drachonus for pointing it out to me!

People often ask me just how awesome is it to be me? What is it like living my life as a big-time Dementia star.



OK, nobody asks me that, and this song pretty much sums it up.

New Song: "Nothin\' But Truth" [Apr. 26th, 2016|07:22 am]

Rapper B.o.B made headlines in January when he went on a Twitter rant about how the earth is flat. Neil deGrasse Tyson chimed in and hilarity ensued. I wondered what other ridiculous conspiracy theories he may believe and put some of them in this parody of one of his songs.

Sudden Death's 30th Anniversary [Apr. 23rd, 2016|01:58 am]

On April 23, 1986 I was on the bus with my friends Dave and Scott. I casually leaned over to them and said "Hey, we should form a rap group." They said "OK." And the rest is history! Well, not really. But the fact remains that it was 30 years ago today that I started on the path that would lead me to producing hundreds of comedy songs, releasing a dozen albums, performing in front of hundreds and occasionally thousands of people, and having multiple #1 songs on the Dr. Demento Show.



To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Sudden Death I have posted the entire Sudden Death catalog on Bandcamp at http://suddendeathrap.bandcamp.com. These are the original mixes from the original releases, not the specially remastered ones for Rhythms from the Crypt. All eight Sudden Death albums are there from Dead Things Can Rap Too (1992) to Fatal Error (2008).



Additionally, the remaining Sudden Death CDs are 30% off for the next month. Fatal Error, Die Laughing, and Fatal Accident Zone are now just $6.99 over at The FuMP.



If you've been with me since the beginning, or even early on, thank you so much for coming along for the ride! If you weren't, thank you for joining at whatever point you came in! This is your chance to catch up on whatever you may have missed.



I'm truly honored and humbled to have had so much support over the years from so many awesome fans and people in the industry. While I have never made much money doing this I absolutely love doing it and can't imagine ever doing anything else. So here's to (at least) another thirty years of comedy rap! I will put down this microphone when you can pry it out of my cold dead hands!
