Album Notes
Recorded mostly at night by a crew of non-denominational nomads on a Spanish Fleet thirty knots off the coast of Baja. Only two separate acts of violence occurred between the crew while recording. Inspired by a few years on a little island in the center of the universe.

Punch Cody was created out of thin air by Brian Wask, the author of three novels, Fill of Blue (2001), Nitwit (2004) and When the World Was Round (2006), as well as a short collection of stories (2002). He is currently in progress on another novel with a lot of words. He has lived in New Jersey, West Virginia, Jamaica, a 42 ft Ketch, and presently NYC. Punch Cody: A Demonstration in Audio is his first CD. He plans on recording another CD in the future.

Pat Finnegan co-produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered the music as fearlessly as Ahab himself. Chance Demar tickled his strings during the most vicious storms. Jay Klein suffered but then recovered after an argument with a tuba. Bienert, Rizvi, Wilgus, and Daly gave their lives.

It was hard to make these stories look pretty but Milinda Zumpano wrapped them in a case designed like a classic tale at sea and the inside artwork illustates the vagabond voyage.

The songs hum distant calls from transient souls and remind the
listener Punch Cody believes in many gods.

Punch Cody reviewed by Josh the Cat

"Take Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen before they were famous-smash 'em, mash 'em up, crush 'em down to ashes, then blow those ashes out to sea. Empty the sand from your shoes and then hit the local bar to empty your blues... into your glass of Bourbon. When there's no money anywhere in your echoing pockets or wishes left in the fragile bottle, you can call this place home. Follow the sounds of the lonely trumpets and tubas back to the old lady and walk the dog. A true New York original in the spirit of head-spaced classics and gutter born whiskey mystics. I highly recommend."

Punch Cody reviewed by novelist Chris Conroy

Ahhhhh. Like a fine hit of acid, Punch Cody's opening track--'The Devil lives in Mexico'--starts us off with that warm, fuzzy--almost hypnotic feeling. The lead vocals come from a Mr. Wask, who's deep groan/whisper of a voice, grows on you as the trip trails on. Songs like 'In a Box,' 'Drink 'til I forget' and 'Dirty, Rotten, Night Creatures' will leave you scratching your head and smiling at your reflection in the back of the black CD case (which, by the way, was masterful designed by a Ms. Milinda Zampano). It's hard to put a broken finger on Punch Cody's influences, but traces of the raw Tom Waits and the infamous Mike Patton are evident in the lyrics and music in this delightfully disturbing debut. In 'The Island', Wask somehow seems to wrap up the slew of misfits that live--and die--in the songs before. If you’re looking to add something a little sick and a little twisted and a little broken hearted to your collection, then by all means--FUCKING PUNCH CODY INTO YOUR BOX!

drunken,twisted,compelling work of art.
what a journey mr.wask will take you on if you let him.the best thing you can say about original music is that it takes you somewhere, ANYWHERE, away from ordinary, everyday life. wask certainly accomplishes this on every tune. songs like the devil lives in mexico, drink til i forget, and especially dirty rotten night creatures are full of trips through the beautiful unknown. with a hint of the future, but mostly romps through the past with old friends finnegan, demar, and bienert, a demonstration in audio (great title) certainly lives up to great whiskey soaked expectations.
