The Renos - Yearly Post and Free Download

So every now and then I feel the need to post this. Apologies if it feels like I’m petitioning, but, since it’s free and all, my thinking is that I’m not really asking anything of anyone—

The Renos was a band I was in with my good friend Brian Bonhomme who had a brush with the music industry as lead guitarist (and some songwriting and background vocals and such) for the British band Roman Holliday back in the early 80s.

The Renos was mostly me on vocals and songwriting (except for the two that Brian sings, which we co-wrote [which he mostly wrote, actually]), and Brian on guitars, keyboards, and etc. Tracks 10 – 15 are demo tracks that I recorded on my home computer, playing all the instruments and incorporating sound files (mostly drum tracks).

I hope you like it.
