Here are 2 tracks from New Years Eve, Wednesday, December 31, 1997, recorded live at THUMS in Concord, NH.  John assembled the Deep Fried Horns for this gig (John on alto sax and Frank on trombone) and Ben is playing the guitar (Frank Tillotson and Ben Rudnick).  Our close friend, Marty Mahon, had the reigns of this establishment for some years and Lichen had so much fun playing there and being treated like royalty by him.  It is a live recording with a glitch here and there, but well worth the listen.

This Lichen clip is from Gathers No Moss, a live recording from Angelo's in Manchester, NH, on May 8, 1987.

The original song is an instrumental written by Charlie and John.  It features Dan Irizarry on harmonica with solos by the other members.  The high end is very prominent, but as I always say...worth the listen.

3/4's of Lichen lived at Del Mar Island in Ocean Beach/San Diego in 1981.  Steve Cook and John wrote the song Del Mar Island then.  The place was on Del Mar Ave. and the view to the ocean was of below......nice!

My message is: life happens around you and you can't control it, but you can in your head by keeping the right frame of mind.

There have been many songs played for Derek in the past weeks....here is one of Charlie's from the last Trestle

Here are a couple of audio tracks from the holiday party Lichen played at in December 2019. We love our instrumental/muzak sets for cocktail hours at weddings or other events, which All of Me shows. Something Stupid is similar, but we do the lyrics. We learn special songs for many gigs and Something Stupid was one that we learned for my deceased brother Danny's Celebration of Life party (because he had me do a duet with him at the Davignon for karaoke one night), but we forgot to play it in the midst of all the different combos of musicians that day. 

One of the best things about these audio tracks is that the recorder was right next to Bill's drums and it picks up so clearly all the nuances and tinkling cymbal touches of his playing. How COOL!
