I’m Not Afraid

I’m Not Afraid is a song I wrote about ultimate love and ultimate loss. With the clarity of hindsight I realize that, at the time, I had no idea what love and loss really were. Now after many years and much damage, older, and hopefully wiser, I can truly comprehend the words of my younger self.

On The Edge

This one is special:

and I thought it had been lost forever but Dave found a single copy. Of all the spectacular and varied songs written by Dave Bruce this is my personal favorite.

I honestly don’t know what inspired Dave to write this song but it surely would be an interesting story. On The Edge is, in my opinion, his most enigmatic and unrelentingly dark creation. Dave’s evocative lyrics with Bob Oates’s haunting guitar work bring to life the voice of a crushed soul, wailing from the abyss of a life completely destroyed.

Ladies and gentleman, I give you On The Edge

Radical Touch

When I first started this project I uploaded a version of Radical Touch, a song co-written by myself and Colleen Weiss. When I reconnected with David Allen Bruce he had some cleaner recordings and I’ve decided to replace some of older posts. The audio on this is far superior to the previous version so turn it up and enjoy the crunch

Beyond and Back

Nightwatch had its origins in a merger of the groups Archer and Lazerwind. Beyond and Back is a song from Archer that we brought into Nightwatch. Written by Bob Oates, to me it epitomizes his ability to “paint” with words, evoking emotion without any specific story line in the lyric allowing the listener to free associate and create their own story. (Very Psychedelic)

Babies Got A Most Peculiar Way

Babies Got A Most Peculiar Way is one of Dave Bruce’s songs. This is the only recording of it that I know of. It was part of that last rehearsal studio live recording we did. I apologize again for the poor audio quality but this was live and the tapes have degraded over the years.
