Hey Mark! Thanks so much for your kind words on "Lurker Boy"! I really appreciate your support of all our "stuff"...keeps us hopping! Cheers Smudgie
Sounding great Smudgie, always one of my faves, and love hearing your songs.
Great vocals/lyrics, and musically!
Hey Kallen, Thanks! Awesome that u like this. I agree venom is the word here. So glad the lyrics work...that was the real focus for this tune. Cheers, Smudgie
Hey Carol, Thank you so much for your kind words on "Lurker Boy"! Thanks also for the welcome back! It feels good. Cheers, Smudgie
DJFrankieHolmes Thanks! Glad u like the lyrics. I think I know what you mean by the forward and backward movement in this song. So glad it was "appealing"! Thank u will pass this on to my producer. Cheers, Smudgie
Whoa! ...really classy song and performance. Love the power and venom transmitted in what is quite a dodgy subject. Cutting edge to the lyrics...oooh..my kinda stuff completely. keith
Most excellent song & performance, much enjoyed hearing this! Wonderful to see you here again!! :)
Very complex musical composition. Precariously placed instruments and vocals, I LOVE Punk by the way, and you can hear a lot of the Punk genre in my own vocals if you give my songs a listen. But onto this song! The lyrics are kind of funny but very appealing and mysterious. The music really drives the vocals forward and this song seems to lean forward in my mind in an abstract way. Very interesting that now the song seems to lean back and then forward again... the breakdown was just wicked and I'm loving this song big time. Thanks for this, your hard work has paid off big time! Wondrous tune!! - DJ Frankie
Hey Eric, Yes, I've been trying to get back on the Forum too and can't get on! Tech is not responding. Eek. Have asked a few MP3ers for help to get me back on (been over a year of trying!). Things are going well on the music front thanks. Hope they are going well for u! Thanks for your kind words on our writing/production/vox! Cheers, Smudgie
Hey Tbwig, Yup still recording at the Bat Cave..I did go down to Nashville a few times and more recently I've been going to LA. 2014 has been music magic to be honest! I'm very grateful. Thanks for liking Lurker Boy (and RRD and ATCY)! Yup my bro does all the effects/engineering/production plus he makes a great cup of coffee! Cheers, Smudgie
Hey DSS Music, Thank u so much and thanks for picking up on the story twist! Awesome thx for the rate too ! (usually I write pretty cryptically!) Cheers, Smudgie
Hey Dave! Thank you so so so much! You made my day/week/year with this awesome comment! Cheers, Smudgie
Hey Dan, Thank you so much for diggin' the new tune and for saying u like all our stuff! Awesome. Wish I could pin down our "sound" but very glad it's unique. Cheers, Smudgie
Hiya Dawn, Nice to hear from u too! been a long time! I've been unable to get on the forum (forgot password/username) and tech hasnt responded. It's been over a year now. Been asking others to contact tech for me! Thanks for liking this tune! Like the Timberlake ref! ;) Cheers, Smudgie
Hey DJC, Thank you for liking this tune...glad the drums keep it energetic and thanks re the vocal. We were experimenting with different vocal styles and so it's good to know this one might work. Thanks also re lyrics. Yay! Cheers, Smudgie
Hey Atuesdayparadox, Thanks so much for the comments on my latest track! Will pass your kind words to my producer too. Thanks for rating! Cheers, Smudgie
Hey Essence Thank you so very much for your kind words! Really appreciate them. I have never been able to pin down who or what we sound like..(the comparisons are all over). Yes I have a video to the track "Clearer" which I will send u.Thanks again!! I will try to email u directly :))) xo Cheers, Smudgie
Thank you so much for commenting. Glad u think it's compulsive and u enjoyed it. Cheers, Smudgie
Hi Smudgie it's been awhile. How are things going? Hope well. This is very cool track and like Dave said with your work it always is. Writing/production/vocals as strong as ever! Great track.Eric
Still recording in your brother's studio? How are things in Nashville working out?...doors opening for you Smudgie, I hope. Red Dress is still a fav..and Then Came You...but Lurker Boy is delightful! Fabulous vocals! liked the F/X that came and went on them...creates movement and interest. Enjoyed the arrangement behind you...brother's work? Good stuff!
Sounding terrific and love the twist in the lyrics. Excellent song and production. Easy thumbs
I love Smudgie!!! Have done for years now..:-)
Always a treat to hear a new one. From my first days lurking around MP3U i have enjoyed all your music. You have your own sound and it is not only so recognizable, but it's so dang terrific!
Hiya Smudgie..great to see u again....love this one....had me wishing I was back dancing the night away...tops! (sounds like Timberlake...curly hair and trench coat hehhee)
Lots to like here! Love that driving beat those drums make me green with envy ha ha....bass and guitars keep up, pushin' things along but the real grab is that vocal. Excellent lyrics and a catchy melody, great use of effect on the intro and outro. Enjoyed! Several times now :)
Love the sitar sound and the snappy snare, great vocal and production. Easy thumb for Lurker Boy. Gibbo
Long time no hear Smudgie :) I have always enjoyed your voice, and this track is no exception :) You definitely have a Unique Band Sound, and I'm glad to hear a long overdue upload from you :) Have you made any new Videos lately? I'd like to see them if you have :) Strong Track, Enjoyed, Ess x
Hi, this is the first time I've heard your music .... interesting subject matter from a different angle. Makes the song compulsive. Enjoyed - Phil
Hi Dave! Thanks so much for your uplifting words! Can't tell u how much we appreciate it! Awesome. Cheers, Smudgie
As always with your work...Production and songwriting is of a very high standard!.. Nice up-tempo track... everything sits in a good place... music,vocals,lyrics the whole listening experience is top draw!

Thank you for taking the time to listen from...
Really good listening music with a story in each song. Well recorded and produced. Thank you for the opportunity to listen to your performance.
Great tune. Nice tight focused guitar. Really enjoy the vocals as well. Salutations to another great Canadian band. Thanks for the kind words on my tune.
