about

Experimental and catchy. Melodies with a touch of geekiness. One of my best albums yet. 10 tracks created on a GameBoy Advance, using the Nanoloop cart, plus one nerdy track created an iPhone with the Nanoloop app.

about

Doctor Popular San Francisco, California

Doc first started making electronic music on his Playstation using MTV Music Generator. Shortly after, he started making beats with circuit bent toys and Reason, but just found that the more powerful the software the less inspired he was to write new material. Now Doc writes his songs on Gameboys and iPhones. ... more

Track Name: Dragon Drop
Verse
I'm writing a film about zombies
It's really about letting go
No desk no job no credit cards
There are no heroes for ghosts.
Push circle to square to see what fits
I can't find my survival kit
I'm writing a film about zombies that's really a film about learning to cope

Chorus
You break it
You bought it yeah
You stick it in your closet
Oohhh collecting ghosts

Verse
Shooting one ten in the Mission
Like a spy stuck inside their own home
escape from giants into the mouths of lions
Has killed the fear of being alone
Stack Casios aside to ship
I'm working on my manuscript
And chasing inspiration
From a long time ago
Track Name: Sarcastic Science
Verse
Sarcastic science she would like to know
In her complacent ministry of fear
How are we proposed to,get away from here
When she has made things so we have to go
Or be wiped out will she be asked to show
How by rocket we may hope to steer
To some star of three say half light year
Through temperature
Of absolute zero

Chorus
Why wait for science to supply the how
When any amateur can tell it now

The way to go away should be the same
As fifty million years ago we came

If anyone remembers how that was
I have a theory but it hardly does
Track Name: Lava
Chorus
The ground is lava
The ground's hot lava
It is hot to the touch never gonna stop 'cause

The ground is lava
It'll burn yr socks off
If you wanna cool 'em down then move them feet around

Verse
We forged cardboard into swords
With the scraps of our forts
Like Godzilla through a city we
Stomp through it with ease
We smash through walls and break our treaties
Then we grab some sharpies and glue
And we do it again (singing)

Verse
Count down
From 100 to 1
(...)
You'll seek & I'll run
Finding me was easy
Hiding by the tv
Laughing out loud to Ren and Stimpy
Then we jump up and down on the couch like a trampoline (sing)
Track Name: Möbius Strip Tease
lyrics
Is this a date or am I walking on a Möbius Strip?
Cause one minute y'r cool, the next you flip
You've always gotta make everything so dramatic
Simply talking to you requires use of higher mathematics

Come down to this
Your loose lips have sunk a thousand ships
And I heard somebody finally beat you at this
Must of been some sort of subgenius

I kiss the moon, when I think about you
It's all I know how to do
I took my cues from you and then you took 'em back
Now theres nothing else to loose you took it all
I want it back
Track Name: Overblown
Verse
Don't turn around ocean thought look at the water
Pushing dead love like a priest
But as soon as I stop pushing this any further
float away bad day catch me when I'm gone away
Here I drown lost again choke on the water
Earthbound up and down can't think straight
Touch and go here we go choke on the water
Pushing this boat baby coast to coast

row row row
And Fade away
Covered in sweat
Find a dry place to stay
Ship to shore
Bay to bay
Cut and run
another stowaway

Chorus
High tech low life
overblown and underdone
Searching for meaning and it seems to be
Between the devil and the deep blue sea

Verse
Albatross
Stay away
High and dry
Shake a leg
Ship to shore
Bay to bay
Cut and run
Stowaway
Overworked
Underpaid
Lose yourself
Castaway
Know the ropes
Get away
A bitter end
On display
Hard and fast
So cliche
Upgrade time
No delay
Up the mast
On belay
Warning light
Low battery
Row (row, row)
Fade (fade, fade)
Sweat (sweat, sweat)
Stow-a-way
Ship (ship, ship)
Bay (bay, bay)
Cut (cut, cut)
Stow a way

Verse
Don't turn around ocean thought look at the water
Pushing dead love like a priest
But as soon as I stop pushing this any further
float away bad day catch me when I'm gone away
Here I drown lost again choke on the water
Earthbound up and down can't think straight
Touch and go here we go choke on the water
Pushing this boat baby coast to coast
Track Name: Dazzler
Verse
From your lips to god's ears
and loud enough for anyone to hear you say
You're waiting for the day when they all know exactly who you are

Chorus
A star
A star
A star is who you are

Verse
You're bright, you're bold
A voice like gold
Glowing oh so brightly
But chasing dreams gets so lonely

Chorus
Dazzler
Dazzler
Dazzler
They call you the disco dazzler
Track Name: Destroy All Presets
Chorus
Accept the rejects
Destroy all presets

Verse
I'm only here to have some fun
Stuck behind the microphone
They say give up
But I don't wanna
Cause giving in is overdone
Track Name: Rumspringa
Verse
I miss yr kisses
and yr lips like puzzle pieces
But remember when the beat hits
We'll keep dancing to the music
But for now were done romancing
No more time for one last dance we
keep adding and subtracting to
This misunderstanding

Then I'm standing in the corner
Glancing at the dancefloor
And Bragging into space let's waste
This chronic opportunist
Searching for some new shit
Preach like god's cartoonist
Banging on a new hit
Found a Gameboy for the cubist

Gave the Gameboy to the cubist
But he claimed he didn't like it
So I threw it in the closet
threw that in for your amusement
Nanolooper tracking fiercely
Kick drum thumping extra filthy
Swaying like a zombie
So Involuntary
...Less talk more
...Feet on floor
...Heads in clouds
....Light from sound
...shoplifters
....Pick and pull
San Francisco

Chorus
I poured a thief into my skull
Give me yr heart or ill low up the world
What we had almost lasted
But so did Chernobyl

Knew it wouldn't last
So it ended with a blast
And now your old boyfriend
who is now yr husband
And you both walk past

Verse
Ecstatic waxing
8bit sonic draftsman
Wielding synths and anti-theory and
Bags of 9volt batteries
Really just a sissy but
I'm feeling ballsy lately
These days they blend together
But the nights keep getting longer

For the first time in yr life
Finally knowing what's its like
I'll see you on the other side

Rum
Rum
Track Name: The Plan
Verse
Opening scene, you and me
Hand in hand cross parking lot filled with zombies
Stomping feet, swords for teeth
Crowbar swings as we head to the house across the street
Through an open door, run to the second floor
Pop the lock prop a chair and we take a seat
Hold our breathe, no sound yet
Fall asleep with yr head upon my chest

Chorus
There's no where to go, but we already know
We're gonna find a boat and row... to Alcatraz
We'll be safe at last, we'll live off of the crabs we catch
till this whole thing has passed
Easy to defend, won't be the end
We'll reinvent our lives and wont need rent
Just You and me (x 4)

Verse
Flashback, one week back
Flying kites in the field before the attacks
A view of the bridge, fog on the ridge
a scream from the beach, we mistook for somebody's breaks
Searched for the sound, bodies on the ground
Waves of shapes covered in blood and headed our way
Grab what we can, and then we ran
Hand in hand we dashed to the overpass
Thought we were safe, our mistake,
A close call, barely made it away

Chorus2
There's no where to go, but we already know
Things are starting to change aboard the boat to Alcatraz
Your arm got slashed, in that last attack
Your eyes turned black and now you can't hold back
No escape, it's already too late
We're carried away by the waves in a final embrace
Just You and me (x 4)
