Putting Atticus to Bed

Atticus – Blurry Head could either be the second collection of music by Atticusfallen, or the last bits of Atticus that I had to put onto tape. Recorded at 1916 Bainbridge Street in Philadelphia in an area known as Graduate Hospital and later as SOSO (south of South Street), the songs here are Atticus songs that […]

Atticus Closes with Wondrous and Weird Bravado
Atticus Closes with Wondrous and Weird Bravado

All The While We Smile is the last collection of music by Atticus; a name Rod Galloway and I called ourselves ever since we started jamming together in his 1992 apartment attic on Baltimore Street in Dillsburg, PA. The Journey It would be difficult to sum up what Rod and I had been working on […]

In A Place That Is No More, We Played
In A Place That Is No More, We Played

It was August 31 of 1996. The venue was The Java Hut in Shippensburg, PA. It was just the two of us. Rod and myself. Two guitars, two amps, two microphones, two candles and a boom box to record the event. And we had our songs. Conjuring bravery and confidence, we played our material to […]

The Wasps Bobbed And Weaved While We Played
The Wasps Bobbed And Weaved While We Played

Coming off of the high of playing our songs live the night before, Rod and I spent an evening in the barn drinking Meister Brau and savoring the previous night’s performance. He hit the record button and we started playing and improvising. One song after another, in a row, voices getting slurry, vision getting blurry, […]

Forests of Money, Nervously Chatting Gulls and a Flowered Couch.
Forests of Money, Nervously Chatting Gulls and a Flowered Couch.

With No Credit To Bare is the second recorded collection of songs by Atticus and was finished in July of 1996.  As a kind of mid-90s “where the sidewalk ends,” this collection pushed our creative songwriting further than the simplistic angst of Nobody Special, although I wouldn’t call the emotions and wordplay in that recording simple […]

Put Our Hearts on the Sleeve and Said “F” It. Atticus: Nobody Special
Put Our Hearts on the Sleeve and Said “F” It. Atticus: Nobody Special

Nobody Special is the first recorded collection of songs by Atticus that was finished in May of 1996. Throughout the early part of that year, Rod Galloway and I were writing our tunes and demo-ing them on cassettes for each other to listen and learn. We then would meet at Rod’s place on Scotch Pine […]

Atticus: Storm In Melodic Form
Atticus: Storm In Melodic Form

Attic. Us. That is the meaning behind Rod’s and my band name. Our “he and I” name. We came up with Atticus in 1992 when we were dropping noise onto cassettes up in his Baltimore Street attic in Dillsburg, Pa. It was a ritual of performance; something to express and to capture; we wanted to […]

Atticus: The Exeter Session
Atticus: The Exeter Session

I thought I would start the Atticus and Atticusfallen story with one of the most beautifully melancholic moments in my life. It was February 1996 and my partner-in-musical crime named Rodney Galloway was a high school mate that I hung with as we wound down our senior year at Northern York County High, located in (then) rural […]
