From The Vaults

I’m happy to report that the Raybeats are in the process of preparing some unreleased material for release in the fall of 2012. Included will be tracks recorded with Philip Glass that were recorded in the early ’80′s, around the time this picture was taken on the Lower East Side. Graffiti by Kenny Scharf, Keith Haring, Daze, et. al.


Thanks to all at SpongeBob SquarePants. I’m happy to receive an 2012 ASCAP Film and Television Award and to be a part of the crew that contributes to the SpongeBob soundtrack.
