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

    O.J.-Oh! (Day-O) AUDIO parody by Loose Bruce Kerr 1995

    O.J.-Oh! (Day-O) AUDIO parody by Loose Bruce Kerr 1995

    Oct 3rd is the 26th anniversary of O.J. Simpson’s acquittal of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole.
    This song and photo of the 1995 PC diskette of “O.J.-oh!” (to the Harry Belafonte tune of “Day-O”) by song parodist, Loose Bruce Kerr, was the first & only song release of its kind on that medium, including stereo audio with dynamic graphics long before the popularity of the computer video revolution a decade later. It was a collaboration between engineer, Lee Baxter of Campbell, CA and Kerr of Mountain View, CA, both cities in Silicon Valley.
    The song’s audio track is a live performance by Loose Bruce but includes his multitrack recorded background instruments and vocals, a feature of his live solo act in the 1980’s and ‘90’s. He opened for “Weird Al” Yankovic and his song parodies and originals have played on the Dr. Demento Show over 140 times over the decades. “O.J.-oh!” reached #1 on that program’s “Funny 5” in May & June of 1995 as the O.J. criminal trial progressed toward acquital in October.
    The diskette for sale at Tower Records locations in Silicon Valley was packaged in a clear plastic glove evoking Simpson’s lawyer, Johnnie Cochran’s courtroom statement to the jury, “If it doesn’t fit (Simpson)/You must acquit!”
    Kerr went on to become Assistant General Counsel of Sun Microsystems in Silicon Valley in the 2000’s after retiring from his 20 year performing career. After 11 years at Oracle, Kerr then became a contract attorney at Seattle law firm, Davis Wright Tremaine where he works today. He lives with his wife, Linda and their 2 cats in northern California and works remotely.

    P.S. the song's the same but the dynamic graphics on the PC Diskette are not visible here, I haven't found a way to convert the old, stale file format! This photo's just of the diskette and glove packaging.

    "NO GOLD IN CALIFORNIA"

    "NO GOLD IN CALIFORNIA"

    "NO GOLD IN CALIFORNIA" is a Loose Bruce Kerr original from 1992 and a nod to Brian Wilson & the Beach Boys, a group Bruce grew up on and whose harmonies he learned on.
    In 1992 the U.S. was mired in a recession in the economy and dealing with the disaster in Bosnia, ethnic cleansing, immigrants, homelessness, etc. The California of Bruce's youth and idylic songs of the 1960's seemed to be fading. With the fires raging across northern California today (Bruce lives there), the same might be said about now, nearly 30 years later.
    Recording on a TEAC 4-track cassette deck, Bruce played the instruments and sang the vocal parts 1 at a time, mixing down as he went. Earbuds encouraged.
    Loose Bruce Kerr is an irregular feature on the Dr. Demento Show and opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic back in the day.

    HEAD FOR THE HILLS, VIDEO VERSION

    HEAD FOR THE HILLS, VIDEO VERSION

    "HEAD FOR THE HILLS" (a post-pandemic song) VIDEO is now a full jazz band arrangement in April, 2021 of a song Loose Bruce Kerr composed in April, 2020. Who knew it would take a year before the vaccines started to help us toward an end to the pandemic?
    To celebrate that, here's the full arrangement and performance video. The song gives a bow to the earlier pandemic in 1920-21 through its 1920's style song and arrangement. Bruce's parents grew up in the 1920's and his dad taught him songs from that era on ukelele while his mom sang the melodies.
    In this video, Loose Bruce Kerr performs his song live on vocals, accompanied by his new jazz band background tracks just completed.
    Bruce records his instruments one at a time, multi-tracking (invented by his hometown hero, Les Paul of Waukesha, Wisconsin). Some are real (ukes, etc.), some are synth'd (trombones, tubas, saxes, etc.).
    Bruce inserted a 20-year performing and recording career into his day job as an attorney. He's been back practicing law for the last 20 years and continues to record his songs in his garage studio.
    Back in the day, he opened for "Weird Al" Yankovic. He's an irregular feature of the Dr. Demento Show where his songs have been played over 100 times through the years.
    His mp3 audio songs and videos can be streamed or downloaded at loosebrucekerr.com. Email Bruce at BKerrLaw@aol.com
