The Beguine Brothers

So I’ve been playing in this country band for the last several years, purely for fun. Our cardinal rule as a band is “do not overprepare” which means we might practice for an hour or so ahead of a gig, but rarely more than that. The second rule is “you may not sing a song you wrote” which sounds funny till you realize that nearly everyone in the band is a songwriter. It’s a fun bunch of folks and the vibe is definitely low key.

But after …. years, we finally made some recordings. Here’s the first couple tunes, My Bucket’s Got a Hole In It and To Love Somebody.

Thanks to Dave for the technical work.


After 4 years of learning how to glue Perl and C together with XS and many sleepless nights, I have released SWISH::3 to the CPAN.

<cue the sound of scattered applause>

Mostly this is a triumph of longevity rather than quality code. It’s taken me this long to get something workable.
