About Rock Modo

Buenos dias from beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Rock Modo is me, Michael, with help from some talented pros in the recording environment. This song is from a CD titled Alien at the Wheel. This is not my living, rather a creative outlet that has dogged me all my life. However, I can misbehave as badly as any professional, given the opportunity.

About Rock Modo

Buenos dias from beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Rock Modo is me, Michael, with help from some talented pros in the recording environment. This song is from a CD titled Alien at the Wheel. This is not my living, rather a creative outlet that has dogged me all my life. However, I can misbehave as badly as any professional, given the opportunity.

We are currently working on a 6 song EP for release late in 2017. I had intended to follow the Alien quickly and efficiently with new stuff, but life got in the way. Ah well.

I noticed my idle boast about a 2017 release. It still hasn't happened. What a putz!

Second Time Lucky.

Random pseudo philosophical nonsense, as usual
The Home Stretch
I have finally loaded a new song. Another Modo collaboration with Mel Gargus and lead guitar from Al Perez. “Funky Dread” is just another straight ahead tale of a friendship going bad. I am going to write different lyrics out because they are a little more complex.
Make my diamond shine
You can throw away the lifeline
What can take the place of, those little things you so love
The nausea it comes and goes
She told me, only a woman could know
How it feels to lose yourself within
So I’m floating in the water waiting for the end of the world.
Living for each moment
Becoming Misha McDonut
Memorize what never applies
Memorize the best lies
I’ve always denied my gift of sight
The Lord brought me crying into the light
And just for a moment I felt it again
Bound by one purpose wrapped by a single chain
So I’m floating in the water waiting for the end of the world.

This lyric is about nostalgia for the moment of birth. As one cynic said, the moment you emerge you begin the inexorable grind toward your demise. I am much more optimistic than that, but understand the reasoning. As another Modo song once said
Life is short but the days drag on
And waiting’s just too hard to swallow
I’m a proud and stubborn man
But just one kiss and I’ll follow.
Or perhaps the Beatles with, “It’s a long and winding road, that leads to your door.” There as many ways to write it as people to say it. That’s why we tart it up in these allusions. If the lyric read,
You’re born
You fart around for a while
You die
It would be a pretty short and boring song…haha. Make the most of your summer everyone. And thanks for listening.

A Month in the Life

Howdy everyone. Hoping summer has been special and that we are moving ahead from the tribulations of the lockdowns. Mercifully for you it has been months since the last outrage on this page. But time again for the next chapter. We have finally released the master version of "Metal Dreams" to digital platforms and created a video for YouTube. Behold a fresh Spotify link and a You Tube URL. YouTube . Digital Media sites all hawk stream numbers and without them we have zero chance. I had dreamed of releasing a six song EP, but that kind of presentation is dead. I will try and upload a new song every two months to see how that anvil flies. I don't have a working band, so can't play live to promote my musings. I thank you very deeply for supporting me on N1M. It has been a good summer personally. Modo and his trusty mountain bike, "the Green Beast" have had an excellent riding season. The body is strong though the brain is as mushy as ever. Take care, have some fun and keep listening. My kudos for supporting indie music. Next time I will include the words to a couple of new songs for your critique. Rock Modo. Calgary, Canada.

Metal Dreams-New Video

Howdy. Metal Dreams has been on N1M for a year or two. It was near the top of the N1M hard rock chart for most of that until I got bored with the site. Video was made by Richard Thurlbeck in Vancouver, Canada. This audio is the final studio version and quality is relatively high. Please check it out and I would appreciate any comments, good. bad, or evil. Stay safe, you scoundrels..haha. Modo.
