You can now listen to Barfly‘s full length solo effort released in 2015 under the moniker Floods. The album is called Tentacles of Abraxas and originally accompanied first edition copies of Barfly’s novel Winding Up Strangers in Bars.
The largely sample free full length showcases Barfly’s songwriting and represents a stark departure from the sardonic humor of his early work. If you enjoy the album and want to support the artist, there are links to purchase below.
Barfly, T&B’s de facto Czar of Propaganda has completed his debut novel and we are making it available for purchase here.
Go there now and part with all of your material wealth that you may enter the kingdom of heaven a just and austere puritan.

Happy Holidays from T & B™ Lux Contraband!
Don’t like being a rapper anymore? Nobody pointed a gun at your head and made you take that pack of Newports and Puma sweats.
When Tempest & Brolly™ was orchestrating the meeting that changed rap music forever, we were not exactly thrilled to find that people were actually receiving athletic apparel and cigarettes to do this bullshit. We gave you that, now be happy. Take it and go. We have more pressing matters.
If you hadn’t noticed, at this point we don’t even bother trying to hide what we do. Don’t believe me? Watch this; today we’ll be holding back Get Vicious. This woeful pairing of Pig Food Records’ Dezmatic and Grizzly Grimace is only off your radar because of our round the clock efforts. This brace of heathens flaunt the audacity to continue a tradition of using actual words and phrases to describe things.
Humorous Hurtful things. This song is funny mean-spirited, irreverent insensitive, and it doesn’t have a shitty beat needs a trap hi-hat. Fuckin’ thing even rhymes is just over-thought Dad Rap. This is some off-target, seditionist bullshit and we’ll have none of that.
Shut ’em down, Illuminates.
And as always, thank you for marrying Tempest & Brolly™ Brand Luxury Contraband

In June of 2012, Seattle label Members Only got behind an unlikely project. Barfly and Graves33’s Wolf Hotel EP. A five song CD release accompanying a 32 page hand crafted hardback storybook which was penned, illustrated and bound by Barfly. The limited release was initially offered only at Wolf Hotel shows. It is finally available online exclusively at Tempest & Brolly. You can order your copy in our store while supplies last.
Look at this beautiful Portuguese language (with English subtitles) motion comic! Creator Edson Oda employs various visual methods in bringing this short to life with potent effect.
