what's up

I ate something that disagreed with me. My stomach boiled & churned for years until I finally threw up. I kept on throwing up and throwing up and throwing up until I had enough to make a record. "But", I thought "surely vomit cannot be enough material with which to make a record." "You're right", I conceded to myself, adding "and don't call me surely...is that even a proper name?" Anyway, I found some scrapings, some smegma, some schmutz, some leavings, some detritus...you get the idea. Then I put it all together and it all turned out rather special...VOMIT PLATE SPECIAL that is. And as always it goes great with your favorite ipecac or effluent spritzer. ENJOY! MWHAHAHAHAHA!

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.

Vomit Plate Special

Trip #17 for 2022: Oops, I upchucked again! Don't worry, this time I recorded the results and it made for a good special, just what the doctor didn't particularly order. Ten tracks culled straight from the dampest, most foul smelling area of the Trippo Marx Virtual Vault featuring strange guitars, moody mellotron, and the ever-popular strange voices saying strange things. Perfect for deliberate attempts to ruin dates, parties, or other social occasions. And don't forget to "do the puke" while wearing a super-groovy Screwy Bastards Records T-shirt covered in absolutely no vomit whatsoever (that I know about), available exclusively from the Screwy Bastards Record Store. Buy my bullshit. Buy. My. Bull. Shit. BUY!!! MY!!! BULLSHIT!!!

Randy Akin 1961-2021

To honor my late friend and occasional collaborator Texas blues/rock guitarist RANDY AKIN I have made a collection of tracks available for free download in his memory. I will always feel proud and humbled that he considered the Eddie Hazel-like solo he performed for my song It Ain't The Way to be the best guitar solo he had ever recorded to that point in his life. You were too weird and rocked too hard for this world, rest in peace friend.
