2013_0511 : Nosedive Into The Future (Mix 2)

An ambient ethereal studio collaboration touted as Cowboy Joe vs. Julie Android which produced some dark and elegaic drums, bass and piano. I created the track in one afternoon, while pursuing an experiment to apply some ambient shimmers to some guitar and piano, and I wanted a track to play with. The guitar was the […]

1992_1002 : Waterfalls (Single Mix)

Posted by on Oct 2, 1992 in 1992, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

We recorded this at Entourage Studios, North Hollywood, with my friend Teresa Caffin engineering, and John Matthew co-producing. All I remember now are layers and layers of my voice, at least twelve, in order to get the backgrounds.

1988_0330 : Never Gonna Make It Back

Posted by on Mar 30, 1988 in 1988, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

My sentimental stage was suddenly marked by more songs with direct-“I-can’t-live-without-you” lyrics. This came about when I began to experience unforeseen difficulties with my girl friend T., who in the estimation of most of my friends, was a “child-woman with the mentality of a fourteen-year-old,” whose charm rapidly faded when this all became increasingly clear […]

1988_0318 : Stop The Tears

Posted by on Mar 18, 1988 in 1988, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

The title Fourteen Friends was based upon a litmus print that my cousin Daniel had shown me the eve before I flew home out of Paris, in which fourteen shadowy green shapes gave me the idea. This became the working title for the song, at a time when obscure New Order-ish titles which had no […]

1987_1204 : Music From The Courtyard

Posted by on Dec 4, 1987 in 1987, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

This film was a special experience for everyone involved ended up feeling somewhat worn out and disillusioned. I remember getting a call from Matt, who was director of photography, and who told me that I would be receiving a call from Cynthia, the director, whose composer had backed out on her and was in a […]

1983_1001 : Off The Rails

Posted by on Oct 1, 1983 in 1983, 1984, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

During the months of late 1983-early 1984, John Matthew and I started rehearsing a couple of live tunes. We did some reggae-based pop songs, and the goal was to get them recorded. We ended up involving a lyricist named Kim, a friend of John’s, who said he was interested in singing on it. Personally, it […]

1982_1014 : 2 People, Different Places

Posted by on Oct 14, 1982 in 1980, 1982, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

2 People, Different Paces began its life as Subtle Noise No. 4; an instrumental which I developed in 1980 originally (I played it for John Matthew the Saturday morning of that year’s Beatlefest, whilst sitting in the center of an immaculate oriental carpet; hence his claim “See, that’s why you’re a great guitarist… “) but […]

1982_0314 : I Dig It All

Posted by on Mar 14, 1982 in 1981, 1982, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

As I tried to come up with something to put on the B-side of a cassette for my cousin Daniel (who inspired me to learn the guitar), in the summer of 1981, I began to ad-lib some stuff on guitar, just me playing, as had been the style of our little “international cassette exchanges” until […]

1981_0201 : The Swing

Posted by on Feb 1, 1981 in 1981, Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android, Eric Scott

I came up with this instrumental piece (Subtle Noise No. 5) on acoustic guitar while at a house party at John Matthew’s. I was a particularly anti-social mood that day and remember hiding away in his practice room all evening, working on this song in sections while John repeatedly snuck away to grab snacks for […]
