There is no doubt about it, Vic was a nomad….a nomad of the spirit and soul and a nomad of the road. He never stopped searching for meaning. His songs, right up to the end, were filled with internal wanderings and a determination to never settle down, to never be complacent, to never be satisfied with whatever meager offerings his journey unearthed. His wanderings in the real world were also well documented in his songs. One of the most common settings in his work are hotel rooms, unfamiliar spaces which he finds himself trapped in and screaming to escape. For anyone who has spent a lot of time on the road his settings are all too recognizable. The brilliance of Vic’s writing is the way he takes these external spaces and uses them to reflect the inner turmoil and sense of alienation that he was forever kicking against.
Here is our version of “Old Hotel” (which will appear on the Bonus Track EP), having just returned from Europe the sentiments expressed in the song strike close to the bone:
There are only a couple of more weeks left for the pre-order bundles….jump on in if you’ve got a bit of Festivus money burning a hole in your pocket.

Our new album Demons and the accompanying seven song bonus track EP are now available for those of you with a Clubhouse Subscription. For those of you without a subscription, we will be starting pre-orders for the album later this week.
If you haven’t looked in to the Clubhouse Subscription, please do so. We think it’s a pretty good deal: in general, it buys you all of the downloadable content on our site including all of the music that we will be adding to the site over the coming year (including all four albums of the Nomad Series) as well as a book (are real book, not an ebook) about The Nomad Series that we will be publishing in early 2012.
