- Guess Who's a Mess (preview) 0:00
Get the latest Brad Sucks updates:
Welp, the album’s off to mastering. What a needlessly awful process that was (spoiler: all my fault). Maybe one day I’ll write up all the things I learned but for now my priority is to move on and keep some guilt-free momentum going. I’m excited to not take four years to make my next thing.
So there are some shows booked. I’ll have an official release date (spoiler: November 2nd) and all that jazz sometime soon. I’m working on new songs and I’m not sure what I’ll do with them yet. Slow and steady wins the race.
This one’s been a struggle and I think it still needs a bunch of work, but I’m calling the demo done and I’ll come back to it. I was trying to do something a bit different and ehhhh I dunno:
Anyway, that’s a wrap on the demos for the next record. You can listen to them all here (warning: spoilers). Gonna take a short break and then start hassling friends for feedback and then I’ll make a bunch of decisions on what needs to be fixed. And then fix those things.
Whoops. I found out on Friday that last week I accidentally uploaded a very old version of my Guess Who’s a Mess demo. That’s pretty embarrassing, I was actually pretty horrified but I think I’m good now. Anyway here’s the latest one instead:
Okay, moving on…
Here’s my last monthly demo thing of 2009. It’s a cover of a Christmas song my friend JB wrote and that I really like. It’s not safe for work, was done in a day and a half and here it is:
Thanks to JB for the background vocals! Oh and here’s the original.
Anyway, that about wraps it up for 2009. I’ve enjoyed doing the monthly songs but I’m looking forward to taking a break. Thanks for listening dudes, have a good holiday.
This month’s demo is actually mostly a song by my pal and guitarist Ben Mullin. He played a demo of it for me and I was like “let me cram my filthy vocals into that and produce it up” and he was like “let go of me”.

Request from Brad if he’s up to it. Bunch of friends and I think Clerks 2 is an awesome movie! We wanted to know if Brad would do a cover song of Goodbye Horses from Q Lazzarus. You know the creepy silence of the lambs Buffalo Bill song. Take the creepy out and see clerks 2 to understand the humor in it. Everyone at work loves Bradsux and wanted to see if Brad would attempt a cover of it. Such groups that actually sounded better that did a remix were Psyche. Anyhow just small request.
I listened to the original and didn’t like it. Then I noticed it was stuck in my head and I started to like it. Then it seemed familiar and I realized my wife was obsessed with it a couple months ago. So here’s my cover:
