billy made 4 albums with his old band madder rose (three of which were good), and a bunch of others, too. since then he has published a few short stories (see writing section). he likes going to the salvation army to buy other people's paintings, so that he can paint over them. his latest artful challenge to himself was to paint 400 very small paintings in 2018 (see below). he hasn't counted them yet.
billy still likes to play the guitar and wonderful, synthetic pianos that sound like wasps in jello. he records songs alone and with others that occasionally get placed here or there. These songs seem to get increasingly transparent. sometimes he wonders why.
then, all of a sudden, trome records got in touch and madder rose is back, and they have recorded a new lp! to be released later in 2019. it is a varied group of songs that sometimes sound like them then, and often, them now.
