Some good tunes

Though he is best known for his somewhat goofy "She Blinded Me With Science," he actually has a number of very nice songs in his repertoire. He is no doubt a master at synthesizer programming, enabling him to come up with some very unique and interesting sounds to great effect. I really admire some of his basslines as well, and some of them sound Jaco-influenced. "The Flat Earth" is the album I've heard, which is hit-and-miss as far as the quality of the songs, but the better tracks on the album are extraordinarily moving. Also check out the songs "I Love You Goodbye" and "Budapest By Blimp." If you weren't impressed with "She Blinded Me With Science," you may find some of this other songs much more appealing. Sadly, he isn't touring in California this year. :(
