Mitch Friedman has written and recorded original songs since 1984. Over the course of three audiocassettes and five CDs, the music has evolved from early minimal, experimental efforts to fully fleshed-out quirky pop and rock. His lyrics have remained largely consistent. Always idiosyncratic, intelligent, and playful. By turns humorous, insightful, self-deprecating, tongue-in cheek, silly, and filled with clever wordplay, though never crossing the line into novelty. Totally Tuneless contains the lyrics to 124 songs, 23 of which have yet to be recorded or released.

Author Biography

Mitch Friedman is a one-man band from Brooklyn, New York. His concept album for kids, Purple Burt, won the 2005 National Parenting Publications (NAPPA) Honors Award. He has collaborated with long-time friends Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory of XTC, and home recording pioneer R. Stevie Moore. In 1998, he attended a one-week long songwriting course in England, taught by Ray Davies of The Kinks. His non-musical pursuits have included ironic street photography, improv/sketch comedy/monologue writing and performance, and film/video editing. He is also the author of the tragicomic memoir Hell Toupee.
