Feels Like Rain
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.

Check out this blurb from Film Threat magazine: “The fascinating part of Future is that it’s not necessarily about Doug being sent to kill a future bad guy, though that is a part of the story. It’s more about the relationship between Doug and the Time Traveler. Doug is the guy who has wasted his life to this point. The Time Traveler, on the other hand, has schemed his way with many other saps, like Doug, and gets off on being there for the final days of someone’s life. He promotes falling into hedonistic desires and goes along with it. It’s this conflicting relationship that makes the story of Future so clever and different. This genre is in desperate need of both of those elements.”
New York Ninja is playing on Showtimes Networks, The Movie Channel Xtra on Wednesday, February 1st at 2:15am
From Showtimes website: The peaceful life of average working man, John, is shattered by the brutal murder of his pregnant wife. Disillusioned by the police’s slow response, John takes to the streets as a sword-wielding vigilante hell bent on cleaning up New York City crime and corruption. But as his quest for justice gains notoriety, a mysterious villain known only as the Plutonium Killer sets his sights on the New York ninja. This over-the-top cult classic was recently restored thirty-five years after being abandoned during production.
The Original Motion Picture to New York Ninja, by Voyag3r, was recorded, mixed and mastered by Steve Greene here at the Battle Chamber and was released on Digital, CD, Cassette and Vinyl by Mondo/Deathwaltz. The film was completed and released by Vinegar Syndrome and edited and re-directed by Kurtis Spieler.
Here is what the New York Times had to say about New York Ninja: The 1984 kung fu film was shot, but it wasn’t completed. Now, with a new director and newly recorded dialogue, the film sees the light of day.
The names of most of the original cast and crew are lost to time, and Spieler said Vinegar Syndrome tried to find Liu but wasn’t able to. This gave Spieler the chance to start fresh with the audio, commissioning a synth-heavy retro score by the Detroit band Voyag3r and fielding a murderer’s row of genre-film stalwarts to dub the actors.
