Do you like Prog Music but you don't have the time these days to listen to a long epic track because you are busy with all those Tweets? Then this track is for you, a prog epic in 2.0 minutes! John Wegner: Guitar, Bass, Synths and Vocals Paul Wegner: Drums and Percussion Living in a modern castle First world problems every day Filling up every minute Wasting my life away My lord sends an urgent test A mysterious jewel is my quest I cannot think my thoughts stray As something urgent tweets my way trapped in cyberspace. A final struggle with my host Trolls surround my every post The code is a cryptic hex Pictures are triple x I strive to climb the cliff Of knowledge in 2.0 Cheers, John

A Volca’s Tale - Live Jam Volca Bass Solo track - No audio overdubs or edits. The different rhythms are achieved by running each oscillator with a different length sequence via the Volca’s active steps. Interestingly when I play notes on oscillator 3 it’s sequence stops, altering the rhythm and bar length. One of the things I will be experimenting with is running the guitar synth midi pickup into this, should be interesting. The only thing added was some reverb via Logic X Pro. Some additional notes snuck in but I like them… I guess that’s what happens when you have big hands. Thanks for Listening. John Wegner

Echo of Humanity - A time-asynchronous jam session between Kaiboard (Germany) and John Wegner (Australia). It all started when Kai saw a video of a drone flying over the destroyed city of Aleppo and discussed this with me. We both felt this loneliness and desperation of the people there. Two years ago we did the ‘Throw Me Away‘ project ( http://fandalism.com/allomerus/dqSe ) which addressed a similar topic, so we had a common understanding. Then the idea of a virtual jam session came up with music that expresses the loneliness, the sadness but also with a glimpse of hope and humanity. We started with Kai creating some powerful live music on the keys (mainly using analog synthesizers and sequencers) and then I added the guitar, also playing live. So, it was like a live session but not played at the same time. Both of us were alone but we made some music together overcoming thousands of kilometers, different languages and cultures, expressing a common view on the world. And it felt good! The video from Aleppo is available on multiple sources. We’re aware that often footage like this is published with a political intention. We follow none of these intentions, our intention is just to raise awareness of the insane things happening these times in many placed of the earth. We took the version from Euronews, you find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkb3y6K3waU&t=72s . We’re using it for a strictly non-commercial purpose.

The Pit and the Pendulum (Lyrics adapted from the work of Edgar Alan Poe) John Wegner: Guitar, bass, Synths and vocals Paul Wegner: Drums and percussion I WAS sick - sick - sick unto death I felt that my senses had left. The sound of the voices merged in one dreamy indeterminate hum. I tottered upon the brink into the abyss I shrank back -- but the walls closed in I saw them writhe delirious horror, I felt every fibre in my frame thrill the angel forms meaningless spectres I tottered upon the brink into the abyss A suffocating odour pervaded the prison! The breath of heated iron! A richer tint of crimson I panted! I gasped for breath! No doubt in the design of my tormentors The pictured horrors of blood. Discordant hum, human voices! Loud blast, many trumpets! Harsh grating, thousand thunders! The fiery walls rushed back!

Hulk Joke Jail Plan. A co-creation with my (musical) brother Kaiboard, my (real) brother Paul and featuring the genius Kjell Johansson. Hulk Joke Jail Plan is an anagram of Kai, John, Paul and Kjell. All the ‘lyrics’ are also anagrams of our names. Paul Wegner: Drums Kaiboard: Keyboards, Audio John Wegner: Guitar, Guitar Synth, Voice, Video Kjell Johansson: Bass Hulk Joke Jail Plan is a track with an interesting background. It started off with Paul doing a drum track to a song he knew. We asked him not to tell us what it was. Then Kai and I set about putting music to it. It has been a fun experiment building up the music, especially the middle section which stops and starts all over the place!!!! Although it has taken a while to get to this point. When Kai suggested we ask Kjell to play bass I jumped at the opportunity and he added his magic ( a lot quicker than the rest of it). Anyway, it’s awesome to finally get to the point where we can share it with you!

House Full of Women (That’s My Joy!) Paul and I are delighted to collaborate with the fabulous Pat Clarke on this tune. He is a fantastic harmonica player and chipped in with some fab background vocals as well. Normally Pat does the straight tunes and we do Prog Rock weirdness, with this tune the roles are reversed. http://fandalism.com/thefatmouth/dh7w This is a boppy blues track about the joy of having a house full of women, but you could probably tell that by the title. I love my family, but, being the one and only mere male sometimes I just don’t understand what’s going on… I am learning though! :-) John Wegner: Guitar, Bass, Vocal Paul Wegner: Drums Pat Clarke: Harp, B. Vocals I want to tell you about my home It's full of wonder I'm never alone Got a house full of women and that's my joy Got a house full of women boy o boy They like movies that make them cry How you can, I can't see why Got a house full of women and that's my joy Got a house full of women boy o boy They like to decorate with a feature wall Helping change things is such a ball Got a house full of women and that's my joy Got a house full of women boy o boy They say one thing, mean the opposite Confuses me i have to admit Got a house full of women and that's my joy Got a house full of women boy o boy I have much more joy than everyone I wouldn't change my house of fun Got a house full of women and that's my joy Got a house full of women boy o boy

Jet. Progressive Punk Rock John Wegner: Guitar, Bass, Synths, Voice Paul Wegner: Drums Many years ago we were auditioning for a singer. Jet (her name) came to audition. We played a song, which given our propensity to include odd time signatures, was not easy to sing to. Jet said ‘I know what you are doing but you are not doing it right’ and left. Well, what a great excuse to write a song and to include as many different time signatures as possible! :-) Thanks Jet! Jet Jet by nature and by name She left almost before she came Jet was one and the same She found someone else to blame Anybody could see what we were doing Anybody could do it right All it took was just 5 minutes To analyze our plight Jet she could easily tell Into place the pieces fell It was not hard to quell Feelings that Jet was not well Anybody could see what we were doing Anybody could do it right All it took was 5 minutes To analyse our plight Jet she did not sit and mope She said there is no hope Jet was off at an easy lope No one knew that Jet could not cope Anybody could see what we were doing Anybody could do it right All it took was 5 minutes To analyse our plight

What’s the Matter? (Original Lyrics and Music by Kaiboard and John Wegner) You can watch it here... http://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=n13KbAyli0Y John Wegner: Guitar, Vocals, Video. Kaiboard: Keyboards, Audio. Lori Oz: Vocals Paul Wegner: Drums and Percussion This track started off as a collaboration between Kaiboard and myself where we wanted to create an instrumental about Dark Matter. After much swapping of music the whole thing somehow morphed into a prog epic meets Rock Opera with an evil behind the scenes manipulator (Dark Matter) and a glamorous Prima Donna (Light Matter), who is, of course, the star of the show. You can imagine how excited we were when Lori Oz agreed to join our collaboration as the glamorous star with the beautiful voice. Perfect. Finally Paul, my brother and a fabulous drummer, brought the track to life with his skilful drumming and percussion. I would like to thank Kai, Lori and Paul for the fabulous enthusiasm and talent they have brought to this track and video. It has been a joy working on this collaboration with them! Lyrics: ======= I am the Show Master I’m your Phoenix Prima donna display I rose from the ashes Brilliant in every way Spectacular I’m the show There’s nothing else to see All consuming I’m the show All you’ll ever need is me I’m your nova Your radiant bouquet You can’t ignore me I write the screenplay Spectacular I’m the show Explanations Guaranteed Dramatic I’m the show All you’ll ever need is me You thought you had the final theory You thought you understood it all Something doesn’t make sense Seems you've hit another wall Intellectual neanderthals I am working behind the scenes You are my little plaything I am the master of the stage I am controlling everything I am pulling the strings Is there someone there? Hello is there someone there? Not in my screenplay! Slinking in the empty spaces With fingers in every pie Am I a Wimp or am I Macho You will never classify me I control you get away from me I control you you can’t see me I control you I’m am the show Please support Kai and Lori’s pages: http://www.fandalism.com/kaiboard http://www.fandalism.com/luckygirlvt http://www.6packband.de/ http://www.loriozmusic.com/ http://allomerus.com We would also like to acknowledge NASA and “The Millennium Simulation Project” for allowing the public to access their fabulous videos which we used to make this.

See the whole thing on Tedd VanWagner’s Fandalism page: http://fandalism.com/bigmoneyjenkins It has been a pleasure working on this track with these guys. Such great musicians and great blokes. It amazes me that we can now make a track such as this with fantastic people from all over the world… Peter Gabriel is an amazing singer and musician whose work I have listened to for a long time. It was a joy to do one of his songs even if the topic is a bit out there! Please check out Kent and Fred’s pages on Fandalism too for some fantastic music. http://fandalism.com/kentavious http://fandalism.com/tader

This track is about conflict and the many phases of conflict. The first section illustrates a peaceful and glorious earth but with an undercurrent bubbling along. The main section in the middle shows different phases of conflict with the uncertainty rage and fluctuations in hope. The last section is the aftermath where people are tired and things are broken but there is still hope. John Wegner: Guitar, Synths, Bass and Vocals Paul Wegner: Drums and Percussion

Tim. Progressive Rock track. John Wegner: Guitar, Synths, Bass, Voice Paul Wegner: Drums and Percussion Tim was not a bad man Was not an ingrate I’m glad he was my mate Tim lived in the City In a tiny flat With a large welcome mat Tim looked after himself He was a careful bloke I never saw him smoke Tim was not a bad man Who would want his luck? Tim strived for humanity His work absorbed his time He was incapable of crime Tim had no enemies He had many friends No one did he offend. Tim was not a bad man Who would want his luck? Tim was on the platform He slipped in the rain He slipped under a train Tim was not a bad man Who should he berate? He didn’t deserve his fate Tim was not a bad man Who should he berate? Tim was not a bad man Who would want his luck?

So Long Ago - Allomerus - Stills/Time Lapse/Stop Motion/Archive Music Video of the track ‘So Long Ago’. I used stills, time lapse, stop motion and archival footage. The stills are from the fort at Pt. Nepean, an interesting yet 'undiscovered' part of Victoria. So Long Ago is a song about history, which is probably pretty obvious from the title. The song is a mixture of genres jazz/blues/industrial and finally some metal.

Zdzislaw (In memory of our father) If you can't pronounce his name call him George. Every one else did. Like everyone that was a teenager during World War 2 our dad Zdzislaw went through a lot of pain, was separated from family and eventually left Europe for greener pastures, in this case Australia because the queue to Canada was too long. He was a kind man who never let his past traumas influence him. We miss him. My Dad is better than your dad Through war and conflict Alone and frightened You fought with evil and made it through When it was over A new life called You left the scars for fields anew What would you know dad? As we grew up And we were brazen You were calm resolute and true The scars were hidden but not buried They burst out and consumed you As my Father used to say Now that your gone And we are older We appreciate everything you did Your funny sayings Encouraging smile The memories you always hid This is the last track from our third album 'All Me Us' which you can download at bandcamp. http://allomerus.bandcamp.com

Epic 2.0 Do you like Prog Music but you don't have the time these days to listen to a long epic track because you are busy with all those Tweets? Then this track is for you, a prog epic in 2.0 minutes! John Wegner: Guitar, Bass, Synths and Vocals Paul Wegner: Drums and Percussion Living in a modern castle First world problems every day Filling up every minute Wasting my life away My lord sends an urgent test A mysterious jewel is my quest I cannot think my thoughts stray As something urgent tweets my way trapped in cyberspace. A final struggle with my host Trolls surround my every post The code is a cryptic hex Pictures are triple x I strive to climb the cliff Of knowledge in 2.0

Video version for "Two for the Price of One". But wait there's more! This track has two complete songs playing at the same time. In one speaker there is a rock version and in the other speaker a folk version. Try listening to it with just the left or right speaker/earbud. Or play with the balance for your own unique experience! This song is a bargain you get two for the price of one For the low low price of 50 you get double the fun But wait there's always more you thought that was all With double the fun at the same price you'll have such a ball Buy it now it comes in gloss or matt We'll throw in free steak knives with that On any other normal day you get just the one song But for one day only at this price you get two for the price of one. But wait before you go and think there's nothing more You can listen to them together a brilliant free encore Buy it now it comes in gloss or matt We'll throw in free steak knives with thatlomerus

What would Oscar think? A song about being original using quotations copied from Oscar Wilde. 'Be yourself every one else is taken.' John Wegner: Guitar, bass, synths & vocals Paul Wegner: Drums & percussion Wilde Temptation Music: John Wegner Words: Oscar Wilde Most people are other people, their thoughts are someone else's opinions, Their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation I am so clever that sometimes I don't Understand a single word of what I am saying There is only one thing worse than this I can resist everything but temptation. I can only find my way by moonlight and my punishment Is that I see the dawn before the rest of the world You will always be fond of me I represent to you All the sins you never had the courage to commit There is only one thing worse than this I can resist everything but temptation. Everything in the worlds about sex; sex is power The very essence of romance is uncertainty You love someone because they singing a song only you can hear The heart was made to be broken There is only one thing worse than this I can resist everything but temptation. God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability Books labeled Immoral show the world it's own shame Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future I don't want to go to heaven none of my friends are there. There is only one thing worse than this I can resist everything but temptation. Be yourself, everyone else is already taken To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people exist that is all Always forgive your enemies, nothing annoys them so much We are all in the gutter, but some of us out looking at the stars

The Sublimation Chamber. Recorded live and mixed some time in the 80s using a TASCAM 4 track cassette. This recording was recovered from a cassette mixdown, then I tweeked the eq a bit. I have always liked the echo freak out section represented here but just had to edit out the start which had the same riff as the end section but with embarrassing vocals. ;) John Wegner: Guitar, Voice Paul Wegner: Drums David Luft: Bass
