Happy Friday! It’s no secret that I’m a giant nerd and LOVE Commander William T. Riker.
So, I decided to write a dirty love song with my band, Red Hot Rebellion, about Riker’s passion for Counselor Deanna Troi.
is a serial comedy science fiction podcast that I write, record, voice, score and edit. It’s completely nuts and awesome and I think you’ll love it. It also uses a ton of my music and music from friends of mine.

I’ve just completed my first novel entitled Ace Tucker Space Trucker. Here is a quick teaser blurb and a soundtrack playlist for your eyes and ears.
Ace Tucker swore he would never visit Earth. As a baby he was left on the doorstep of an outer space orphanage by an unknown alien. There was no explanation, no origin story and eighteen years later the nuns of the Galactic Church kicked out the only human they’d ever seen.
Ace went on to earn a meager living as a cargo hauler and roadie for Mustache Supernova, the greatest rock band in the galaxy. His only contact with Earth was Ivan Chimpanov, a Russian cyborg chimpanzee and collector of humanity’s music, movies and television shows. All that changed the night Ace met Elvis Presley, the very not-dead King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
On a cold Saturday night in January 2016, Fifty Dollar Famous set up at Craterface Studios in warm and cheerful Centerville, OH. They checked some levels then bullshitted around and watched House Hunters until bed time.Sunday morning they ate cereal while they checked local real estate listings. Then they got to work. From 10:30 AM until 6:30 PM they wrote and recorded 10 brand new punk rock anthem. The result (with the addition of two previously recorded tracks written and recorded in under an hour) is the most punk album ever made: Lower Your Standards.
James R. Tramontana: bass/vocals
Andris M. Devine: drums/vocals
RIYL: Black Flag, Circle Jerks, The Mentors, Sloppy Seconds, Off, Cerebral Ballzy.
Overdale is the kind of street where the police are out almost every night. The kind of street where the sounds of neighbors fighting drift over the din of fire engines that are responding to house fires – an anything goes kind of spot. The unlikely place where members of the band sharing the same name lived during their formative years.
Inspired by the music they love, Overdale has never been shy about wearing their influences on their sleeves: Helmet, Quicksand, Fugazi and just about everything on Dischord Records, etc. It began as a side project from their main touring band at the time, Spitvalves. They swapped instruments from their main duties which put Charlie from vocals to drums, Tito from drums to bass guitar and Mikey from guitar to vocals and guitar. Though they’ve had brief moments as a 4-piece they’ve been a 3-piece for most of their existence.
The band has always been about having fun. They played shows and wrote when time allowed and it took a few years to have enough material to record a full-length. The early 2000’s saw the band roll into Reel Time Studios in Holly Hill FL to record. The result is the self titled testament to overcoming odds and refusing to let the good times stop rolling.
Overdale, the band’s eponymous album, is out on February 29, Leap Day, a day that comes but once every four years. The band is still kicking and functioning as a side project from its member’s main effort, The Attack. And the band still manage to squeeze in a few shows and write new material from time to time. But, like Leap Day, it is a rare and special thing when they do.
