The Rubrics blur the boundaries between Appalachian traditional music, science fiction and the ""what if?"", all expressed through odd "instrumental combinations". Having wrapped up work on their soon to be released CD "Monkey Cat Blues", the band is on a much needed sabbatical in Winona Minnesota currently doing critical research for future work.





Loving Paradox (remix)
Still another song about relationships



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

Euell Gibbon's Last Sex Manual (live)
Have you ever wondered what a live Rubric performance is like? Recorded in February 2006 at the Winona Art Center's Songwriting Symposium.



Alternative Indie Folk
h h

Circus Dance Processional
This was written for a musical that never happened which was probably a good thing.



Easy Listening/Soft Rock
h h

Don't Blame Me (It's the Market)
This short tongue-in-cheek political satire was written after a long discussion with my students on economic globalization and the effects of Dave Kingman's baseball career. (I kid you not)




Blues
h h

Hanuman Visits the White House
This is the Rubrics' last chapter in their Hindu song cycle.



Alternative Indie Folk
h h

Father Yig
This song answers the musical question of what type of music would H.P. Lovecraft have produced if he had been an oldtime banjo player?



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

Rover the Jazz Bubble
Have you ever wondered whatever happened to those giant bubbles when the Prisoner TV series was cancelled? I thought not!



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

God Bless America (God Bless Iraq)
I wrote and recorded this a few years ago, just before America's invasion of Iraq. I don 't know whether I'm the same person since I wrote it.



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

Green Men in the Dark/June Apple
I've read too many issues of the National Inquirer.



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

Random Acts of Plumbing
This was the first song my taisho koto wanted to sing after coming out of the box.



World
h h

Why is Krishna Blue?
The second song in The Rubrics Hindu song cycle.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Pretty Polly
The Rubrics like to take traditional numbers and interpet them in a different way. This song is our first attempt at such a rendition.



Alternative Indie Folk
h h

Kiss Me...I'm Dead
what would the world be like if necrophiliacs had their own holiday?



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana
h h

I am
I'd suggest you listen to this one on a late winter's day, driving up Highway 61 (of Dylan fame) along the Mississippi, watching the bald eagles flop along the ice.



Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana

Hey Wes, Glad to see your alright, Hey is that your spleen on the floor, Now the doctor says don't lift anything heavy, I guess you'll have to get help to take a whizz.
Peace now. Looking forward to your new toons.
