My new band Animals From Outerspace has just recorded about 14 new songs and are about to release the album, available for download on iTunes and other stores. I sing and play bass guitar, as well as co-produced the album with Matthew Shively. David Frost wrote about half of the melodies and is the guitarist, and Matt was the studio drummer.
Also, great news, I have just finished producing/directing 7 original MUSIC VIDEOS for these songs! I am about to start editing “Vampires Rise” any day now, and we have completed and released, in order starting with the newest:
and “Perfect Girl.”
You can view all of these music videos on my Youtube Channel (or, if you are in Roanoke and have Cox cable, you can see some of the videos on Channel 2, on “John Angel TV,” Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 10PM).
Here are some pics from some of the music videos I have been doing:
In other news, I have an acting role in a new mocumentary about the actor who played the original Toxic Avenger, the character “Melvin” who transformed into the Toxic Avenger. The film is titled Toxic Tutu, directed by Joe Nardelli and starring Mark Torgl. My scenes will be filming in Martinsville at my good friend Derek Young’s house the weekend of August 23rd, 2014. I will be acting opposite my good friend and actor Jeremy Ambler. Also, co-producing this shoot is Derek Young. David Frost and Leila Hinton will be in the scenes as well.
Also, I have lost 40 pounds of fat after lowering a far too heavy dose of psychiatric meds, also working very hard to diet and exercise. So I am feeling great!
I am also helping out my two sons with their new Youtube page. You can click here to check out Rowan Birmingham’s Youtube Channel.
If you include all of the videos I have been producing for Youtube the past month and a half, even behind the scenes videos like this one for “Wee Wee Sherman,” I am producing videos at the rate of about 100 videos per year (50 of those music videos)! Godwilling, I really hope to keep up this pace of creating amazing art…
That’s it for now. I have a long list of many other original parodies and song ideas for a second album from our band Animals From Outerspace, about to get started writing/practicing those now, in between work on producing/directing/editing these great new music videos, working my real estate job to pay bills… and of course, most importantly, leaving plenty of time to spend with family.
My 4 year old son Ivan’s newest original art:
Here are the next music videos I intend to produce/direct/edit/star in next:
“Creature From The Black Lagoon”
“Erasing You” (This one is 100% written by David Frost, not just the guitar, but also all the lyrics).
“Buff at 79″
Anyway, thanks so much everyone! Peace be with you.
