what's up

Well, I have been exhaustedly busy this summer cooking up many new things. First up, a single: DISCOZADDY, a time-warp aimed directly at the mid-1970's and the "disco" phenomenon, which has permanently skewed our culture and my own childhood psyche (not always for the best). There is no anger so great as the anger borne of the disappointment of a child (a woman scorned? Hmmph!). That is what the story of the song is about...all those special life moments when dear old Dad lets you down, hard. I never got over it clearly, but you can enjoy the swinging sounds and laugh at a ridiculous zaddy zadding about, burning wild and hot with disco fever. Bonus tracks, you say? Got three of 'em. Check it out, only THREE DOLLARS for the whole shebang. And another single is coming, just round the corner...

LONELY AUTOMOBILE, a downtempo ambient exploration of hopelessness and despair fueled by my mother's dementia diagnosis and eventual death. That is what the story of the song is about...all those special life moments when decay and rot set in and permanently destroy reality. A burden that we all share, and you can chill to the track knowing there are indeed bonus tracks, four of them. Once again, only THREE DOLLARS for the kit, the kaboodle, and the kaboodle kit. And my new trip (album) #18 is coming, just in time for the holidaze...

NEW SYSTEM, a voyage into the unknown future with fear, trepidation, horror, loathing, and manic glee about the propects of our imminent self-undoing. 2024 will be a year for the ages no matter what happens, so buckle the fuck up, gird your grid, tighten your sphincter, and hold on tight!!! The best/worst is yeat to come: Utopia or Oblivion, which will we choose?

Hello there it's Trippo Hello there it's Trippo Hello there it's Trippo Fucking Marx yes it's Trippo...I have been composing music & producing recordings in Austin since 1989. I play guitar mostly, but I've been known to play (or at the very least make noises with) whatever I can get my hands on including bass, keyboards, drums, drum programming, midi programming, computer programming, toys, tape recorders, household objects, etc. Sometimes I say strange things and people wonder.

All of my trips are available for download as well as streaming through your favorite digital provider.

New System

Trip #18 for 2023: People people people may I have your attention please? Have you heard the good news about the New System? Recognize wisdom, give a warm welcome to the New System forced up your rectum! This trip takes us deep into our fears about the unknown future and the extremes that humans will embrace just to feel good about themselves for the slightest moment.

Lonely Automobile

Single #2: Ambient downtempo exploration of sorrow, loss, and grief. Single comes with FOUR BONUS TRACKS, an extended version, an instrumental mix of a track that will appear on the next Trip, and two demo mixes of A Gate and Halloween Dream from Trip #5 The Moon Is English for Luna.

Discozaddy

Single #1: Take a trip back in time and shake your booty with a real live zaddy! Single comes with THREE BONUS TRACKS, a dub version, an alternate mix of a track that will appear on the next Trip, and a old remix of Mugwumps In Mukluks, the title track of the album of the same name.
