Steve Greene‘s track, Unbeknownst (The Wayward School) was composed for the companion album for author John Bergin‘s book of short stories entitled, Feels Like Rain.
John Bergin deftly weaves sixteen tales spanning a range of genres and topics—from the horrific and apocalyptic to the mundane, murderous, and supernatural. These are stories about guilt, anger, unknown pleasures, and death.
In Raised by Rats, a chance encounter with a superhero alters the course of a young man’s life. In Corpse Gun, a guide leads his charges across a surreal wasteland to a destination deadlier than the journey undertaken to reach it. In The Mountaineer, a determined man undertakes the Sisyphean task of delivering an extraordinary gift to a remote location. In The Bullet Collector, a teacher flees from America’s gun worship and discovers there is no escape. In The Crying Giant, a fairy tale ending eludes a gentle giant. In The House Of Frankenstein, the Frankenstein monster is alive and well, working his strangest case yet as a private investigator in New York City. In Lost in the Cold Hard Vacuum of Outer Space, a rebellious space pilot happens upon a lost astronaut who teaches her how to cool her jets.
These stories revolt, arouse, terrify, and delight—reveling in the imperfections of being human.
Unbeknownst (The Wayward School) was recorded and mixed here, at the Battler Chamber by Steve Greene. Listen to the track via Spotify or Apple Music.

STORYLINE: Jack (Roddy Piper) is a building superintendent, Jack is a simple man with simple needs. He just wants to be left in peace so that he can get on with reading his book. But the tenants living in his building are always in need of him for something. Fix this, replace that, unblock this toilet. However, when the power goes out in the building the culprit is not a blown fuse or faulty wiring it is two of the tenants who have opened a portal to hell in the basement of the building. If Jack doesn’t close the portal and stop Great Cthulhu rising from his watery tomb city then the entire building, no, the entire world will go down the pan. – Mark A Wood

“Steve Greene is a master of mood, and using just a Sequential Circuits Prophet 6, Alesis Micron & Moog MiniTaur he builds an electronic symphony of dread in the course of this 3 1/2 minute song.
