Down To The Wire (2008)

"Jukebox 1973" or what a friend called "bowlin alley pop"

FEBUHURRY (2009)

9 friends writing and recording specifically for the challenge. Classified as ROCK but has a COUNTRY, a POP song,and a couple BLUES tunes within. Contact danmathis@comcast.net

PopScorn (2010)

Kind of poppy, yet scornful of pop. Lots of help this (our 3rd) year. This was really a rush job as I only had weekends to record. The best was the last Saturday of the month during a power outage when we used a small generator and recorded into the dark of night. PopScorn is an eclectic mix with humor, blues, folk rock, love and lust if look hard enough.

Fire Drill (2011)

Our usual eclectic mix. 12 people involved and 5 different writers collaborating for fun.

Two One Two (2012)

An eclectic mix of Pop Rock, Rock, Folk Rock and Americana

Not Mad

BIOGRAPHY

'NOT MAD' (anagram of Tom/Dan) started in February 08 specifically for the RPM challenge. Originally Tom and myself who usually rock out covers with 'The Effengees'. Now with ten consecutive challenges answered and as many as 10 'NOT MAD" friends participating in a given year, my February's are creative and social. Love it. Thanks RPM for the motivation. I'm sure there are thousands of songs in the world today that would not exist without this event. I can say for sure there are 100 from us that exist because of the Challenge.
