Yes, that was me… circa 2001-2005. I performed with Austin, TX based rock band Down in the Mouth which consisted of famed songwriter, guitarist, and lead singer Monte Peck, drummer Marshall Peck, and yours truly, Brent Christian, We featured an inconsistent revolving cast of bass players, notably… ‘Ex-bestfriend’ Jason Kupka, Derrick the drunk, James LeBlanc the mad scientist, and last but certianly not least, our pale-white rapper (not to be confused with ‘wigger’) and real life comic strip hero Sir Ted ‘teddy boy’ Moore.
We had a lot of fun making good and terrible music together. I love all my ex-bandmates/friends and despite all the drama it was, I miss meeting up with them at our old practice place (or at our various renegade spots where we would rendezvous), I miss entertaining on the stage (or at such venues as Austin’s Pizza), and I miss all the songs we played which came to mean a lot to me.
Thanks Captian Monte! *hat tip*
Monte’s latest creative compositions can now be heard through the musical entrouge known as ‘The Hanyaks‘
I still have a passion for creating/performing music. Over the years, I have built up a collection of songs and am looking forward to collaborating with others to properly record them. …all in good time my friends, *brent-time*
While I write songs of all types and about many things, I believe music should ultimately be used to glorify God, for communicating our love to Him, for receiving & sending out divine prophecies and revelations of Him, and for bringing Heaven to earth.
