This Side of Sanity

musicians who just don’t fit into a single genre box

    behind the music: This song started as the major class assignment in the first of four music theory classes required of music majors. The requirement was to write a complete cadence in the Western classical style. The professor (Dr. Smith) offered extra credit if the piece had Christmas related lyrics. Milo was feeling cynical with Christmas approaching. For the class, the piece was performed on piano, which kind of takes the punk rebellion bite out of it. The band did a great job of restoring that jaded Christmas spirit.

This Side of Sanity is:

    This Side of Sanity brought together musicians from widely diverse musical backgrounds to play music without genre borders. It probably isn’t particularly commercial to ignore the limits of radio station formats, but musically it sure is much more satisfying to play whatever we find interesting or fun.

    We don’t have a record contract. We are making our music available for free download over the internet. If you like the music (or even just one song), how about supporting our direct distribution by sending us the money that would normally go to a record company? Send your money to Milo, PO Box 1361, Tustin, California, 92781, USA. Thanks!!!
