Collect all 4 Collector Cards, get your Victorious Proof to me before anyone else, and win the subjectively styled Grand Prize.

Happy listening, looking, hunting, collecting.

“Bonesetter” song

By , 20 January, 2012, No Comment

Here’s the 3rd song from my collaboration between Roy Harter and Sean Barry of Skinnyman Studios, and it’s easily my favorite so far.

The lyrics were written entirely by Roy.

This song came out of a 20 second demo I sent to Roy and Sean. Roy worked out the lyrics and then he and Sean put the song together and sent it back to me to sing. While they were hard at work, I was laying out in the field under a blanket with a pot of ever-warm tea. The music and lyrics are fantastic and I feel very lucky to be working with such fine young men.

BONESETTER

Half of the day spent wandering the wind
The monks abolish every soldier’s sins.

Bonesetter,
Tie your stone belt around their wings.
Bonesetter,
Bring your plunder back become the King.

All of the salt is crystal on the shore.
The skin of the drums are cracked from all the wars.

Bonesetter,
Tie your stone belt around their wings.
Bonesetter,
Bring your plunder back become the King.

The Percheron leave hoof-marks in the blood.
Their iron-ore left rusted in the mud.

Bonesetter,
Tie your stone belt around their wings.
Bonesetter,
Bring your plunder back become the King.

Master Class in Music Numero 2

In this class, I reveal the secret of changing hats and playing wrong notes to achieve maximum musical viscosity.

Master Class in Music with Sherwin Sleeves

By , 2 February, 2011, No Comment

When I created and uploaded the above video, I thought I’d share it only privately on The Stalwarts website. But then I hit upon the snag that youtube permits you to privately share videos with only 50 people. And I need to share it with a few more than that.

So I thought I would use the video to pitch the AMV subscription once again.

For about 12 dollars a month, you get:

1. A limited edition CD, numbered and signed, with original artwork. One CD per month for 6 months.
2. Access to the Stalwarts website, which includes various types of downloadable extra audio (recorded walks, songs) and video (the filmed of AMV the Play, things like Master Class below. A video tour of Sherwin’s neighborhood is currently in the works). And lastly, a forum to discuss whatever you like.

A six month subscription costs $77.76. There’s a month to month plan of $12.96 and a 3 month plan of $38.88. If you’re not interested in the CD – there’s a download-only option of $45 for the entire six months.

Payment can be sent via Paypal to my email (sphurley@yahoo.com). Other forms of payment can be worked out.

Lastly – there is no such thing as being too late. Subscribers can join at any time.

New Ron & Fez CD!

By , 5 December, 2010, 1 Comment

The new CD is called “Tourniquets & Windmills” and it features 34 tracks – about 19 new songs and then 15 of the more popular songs from “Mighty Horse” and “Peas Hode”. And of course the Christmas La La song. I thought it would be good if there was a cheaper way to get mostly everything.
