A past musical project of mine, and the one Professional! Studio! Recording! of my music, which is why it has a price tag on it - recording ain't cheap, and the sound quality is fantastic on these tracks compared to the living room recording quality (you know... intimate! in a "the dishwasher may be audible in the background" way!) of most of my bandcamp offerings.
Steel Cage Match is 15 tracks of Brooke & John causing trouble, in a low-profile sleeve case sealed with a pharmacy warning label. (See below for more about John, my wonderful guitar-playing pal!) Why is it the same price as the digital album? MY APARTMENT IS OVER-RUN BY THEM. The shipping is kind of intense, though, because alas, that's what it costs.

Words & Music by Brooke Abbey, 2006.
Do you feel stupid sometimes? That is my life 24/7. But the arrogance fairies help me through my life, so this is not inconsistent with my view that I am the bright shining center of the universe.
Bad ideas got my home address Am E
They send me chain letters, and I confess Am
I have been tempted to forward them to you - F F7 E E7 E
What can I say, it's what they tell me to do E Dm Am E7 Am
I know I'm foolish, but it ain't my fault Am E
I was born without my grain of salt Am
So when the devil gives me stock tips and love advice F F7 E E7 E
It sounds like sense as best I can scrutinize E Dm Am E7 Am
I used to get so upset when Dm
I put my foot in my mouth Am Dm Am
I guess I've come to terms with Dm
How it ain't ever gonna come out E7
So when I've been nine kinds of moron, I Am E
Just wait for number ten to arrive Am
I can't avoid it so I don't pout or sulk - F F7 E E7 E
I just save myself some money and do it in bulk E Dm Am E7 Am
No, there ain't no self-improvement plan Am E
for someone of my attention span Am
I just alternate my boredom with my denial F F7 E E7 E
I've given up - I just try to be stupid with style E Dm Am E7 Am
Yes, I've given up - I just try to be stupid with style E Dm Am E7 Am
