Parody & Original Songs of Loose Bruce Kerr as featured on the Dr. Demento & Jim Bohannon Shows

    HOLD ME NOW - Loose Bruce Kerr original

    HOLD ME NOW - Loose Bruce Kerr original

    "HOLD ME NOW" is a new song by Loose Bruce Kerr. While Bruce often does parodies, he also writes originals in various styles.
    This one's in the mold of old Sinatra or Andy Williams standards. Using multi-tracking (invented by his fellow townie of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Les Paul), Bruce adds horns, strings, drums, etc.  by synth and plays the guitars, bass, and sings the vocals.
    Bruce lives with his wife, Linda, in northern California heading up toward Lake Tahoe, oh, and 2 cats (not in the yard, mostly in the house...hot!) Back in the day, he opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic, and has been played over 100 times on the Dr. Demento Show. He's an attorney and works at Oracle. (well, now from his home).

    "THE WRECK OF THE GOOD BOMBA CHARGER" (Live Video, 1981) by Loose Bruce Kerr

    "THE WRECK OF THE GOOD BOMBA CHARGER" (Live Video, 1981) by Loose Bruce Kerr

    "THE WRECK OF THE GOOD BOMBA CHARGER" (Live Video, 1981) by Loose Bruce Kerr.
    In 1981 I was performing my regular seasonal gig on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands at Sparky's Waterfront Saloon. A boat that moved passengers between the Caribbean islands down there was called the "Bomba Charger," held about 24 or so, pretty bare bones. But it got you there.
    I thought I'd contrast the serious subject and tone of Lightfoot's original with a take which involved how boats sometimes had accidents down in the islands...due to insobriety re various substances. This was at a time when weed was rampant among locals, tourists, and saloon workers like me but was illegal and you actually could lose your boat, yacht, ship if contraband was found. Nonetheless, no harm in singing about it (right?)
    Enjoy "THE WRECK OF THE GOOD BOMBA CHARGER."

    "HEAD FOR THE HILLS" (AUDIO) - by Loose Bruce Kerr

    "HEAD FOR THE HILLS" (AUDIO) - by Loose Bruce Kerr

    "HEAD FOR THE HILLS" is Loose Bruce Kerr's latest song, a post-pandemic one and an original that takes its flavor from the 1920's songs his parents taught him growing up in Wisconsin.
    Bruce plays the uke he learned on and inherited from his father, Ken (a Martin uke). His mother sang 20's & 30's songs while cooking and his dad played uke and whistled (he wouldn't sing!).
    Enjoy! We WILL get there...

    "GORBY" (audio mp3) by Loose Bruce Kerr (1990)

    "GORBY" (audio mp3) by Loose Bruce Kerr (1990)

    "GORBY" (audio mp3) is Loose Bruce Kerr's original satire/parody from 1990 on the occasion of the about-to-disintegrate Soviet Union's premier's visit to Stanford U in California's Bay Area.
    Bruce lived 8 mins away so it was only logical he drove there with his guitar & tape deck around his neck playing his pre-recorded background tracks, mounted CNN's 2 story scaffold where they were beaming live to Atlanta, and sang this song about Gorby, which was then nationally broadcast at the end of the 8pm segment that evening.
    On the 30th anniversary of the then-thawing relationship between the US the Soviet Union's Mikhail Gorbachev, Bruce wrote and recorded this song on his 4-track TEAC cassette deck, then sang and played it live at his gigs with the background tracks added behind him.
    Loose Bruce Kerr is from Waukesha, Wisconsin, home to multitrack & guitar inventor, Les Paul, and now lives in northern California. After a 20 year music and performing career (he opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic), Bruce resumed his law career he had earlier dropped and eventually became Assistant General Counsel of Sun Microsystems. He now is a lawyer working at Oracle which acquired Sun in 2010.

    Loose Bruce Kerr is a songwriter (Dr. Demento Show, over 100 plays). Back in the day, Bruce opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic.
