I will be handing out tricks and treats at this one.
Wormwood Wasn’t Here: The World Famous Doll Hut in Anaheim, California.
I was invited to play a rather last minute show this Sunday. It could be one of my last acoustic performances for a while, so if you’re out and about near Anaheim, stop by and check it out.
Sterling Wormwood live at Surfin’ Cowboy in Capo Beach, California June 7, 2014.
Please remain calm! You are about to witness a tragedy in three acts (in the key of A minor). You will be terrified! You will be tantalized! You will be traumatized! It is not for the faint of heart (or squares). So stay if you dare! But remember… WORMWOOD WASN’T HERE.
Song from a musical in progress about a dandy peeping Tom set in a dystopian Cold War alternate past.

I will be giving my first live performance in over two years. If you are anywhere near Orange County, I would recommend attending. I can guarantee you won’t have seen anything quite like it before.
Click the flyer to hear music if you want a general idea of what to expect.
I’ve been too busy to write as much as I like, so here’s a new demo from my upcoming record to (not really) make up for it.
You can also follow me on Soundcloud or like my page on Facebook if you feel so inclined.
I’ve been rather bad with updating my blog as of late, so firstly, I’d like to apologize for that. Right when I finally thought I had some time to do some serious writing, I went and caught the plague. Funny how that works.
I actually meant to post this last week and couldn’t find the time or energy to do so until now. Excuses aside, I plan on doubling down on my output and posting at least three to four new entries a week in the hopes that you all grow exceedingly sick of me.
Now on to the business at hand: “Two-Headed Dog (Red Temple Prayer)” by Roky Erickson. Erickson was the singer for The Thirteenth Floor Elevators, which was one of the first psychedelic bands of the ’60s. He’s an interesting character (to put it mildly): he’s done a fair few stints in mental hospitals and believes in things like goblins, demons, vampires, and zombies (which he uses as lyrical content for his songs). Simply put, he is a man after my own heart.
I’m still kind of sick so I’m gonna go lie down and dream about two-headed dogs and such. Enjoy.
