I am a cynical optimist, that way I cover all of the bases. In spite of all the bullshit, I'm hopeful. 
For the the past 35 years or so I've chronicled our past and present culture in song. 
- Here are 10 songs
- My first musical endeavor, from the 1970s/80s, The Barking Geckos
- Listen to the New Stuff recordings.
- My current band is Under The Kitchen.
- Listen to some of my kids music. (It's actually music for immature adults.)
- See a few clips of the notorious, Blind Bain.
- Y
ou might have heard one of my advertising compositions.  

- Here's a nice article about my "Thanks Mister Banks" record. 
- And here's another from the Daily Herald.
 
All songs copr. 1974-2016 Roger Bain.
