Ten previously unknown tracks from the '70s, dubbed from the original 5" and 7" reel-to-reel tapes show sides of the 18-26 year old songster that few have known or imagined. The playing and writing, from pseudo-gospel to fingerpicked blues to jazzy swing, are surprisingly mature. "This is a record of a time when I was living out of a car, on couches, cots, etc. It reflects my '70s living conditions: crude, minimal, and somewhat dirty." You can listen and download> HERE.

Part allegory, part paean to The Vinyl Record, part autobiographical fiction, part autopsy, pat's first novel dissects a song in search of truth or something better... Cutting social commentary and playful soul searching propel this earthy examination through the back alleys and clandestine clubs of Barcelona at the turn of the millenium.
A digitally enhanced cat snatched Matt's muse. Now he's looking for it in all the wrong places...
Protagonist Matt Packard (FutureX) loved making music until his 1980s hit became a TV cat food ad. Now he’s lost. Some otherworldly friends - a vinyl loving deejay named Diamond Stylus, a goth ex-cheerleader named Kat (who might be an angel) - try to save him. But perhaps he’s doomed...
“Great book! Kind of like if Grant Morrisson was messing with the guy from Portnoy's Complaint like he messed with Animal Man, if the guy from Portnoy's Complaint was really some variant of Will Lee from William S. Burroughs' various books.” –Rev. Norb Rozek
