Artist’s Notes
(By Project creator Kim Noble)

How The Dorks came into existence—the behind-the-scenes story:

Starting with two lyricists who have a bit too much time on their hands, Tracy led the charge in creating some lyrics that jumped off a hilarious page
and kept the project going with his tireless finesse! But neither of us could have ever imagined that James Fraser from the grand UK country and Jenny
Brennan from the even larger country of Canada would ever take this to such a level that left Tracy and I speechless… and that is quite a feat. Adding
in a chorus of fun crooners like Dave Scheuner (California USA) and Jerry Eriksson from Sweden, well, you’ve got one entertaining tune that left us all
rolling in the aisles. And, since Jenny’s mixing skills will leave you wondering if we really are all together live… let’s put it this way… none of
us will ever tell. 🙂 We truly hope you enjoy this one-of-a kind tune and be sure to be on the lookout for the revival of The Dorks coming to a SoundBlend
arena near you! 🙂

Artists notes

How did this happen? Really? 😀
(By co-producer, mixer, Dork JennyK.)

I don’t know. Some how I got sucked into a space time warp engine and got chucked out in an alternative universe where JennyK mixes spoon, mandolin, and cowbell. Was it possible?

Well, it happened. And it’s one of the most entertaining songs I’ve worked on. It’s a lesson in audio editing and mixing that I’ll never forget. I nearly killed myself laughing when I realized what a jug track was. The Dorks are real! The Dorks will be forever awesome and I’ll be there for the revival. Thank you thank you thank you very very very very much.

Some people say we’re two of a kind

And that we’d quite agree.

I’m yin, he’s yang There’s no denying

She’s peanut butter; I’m jelly.

The truth about all of this show

Is to set the record straight

We’re the type that’s clear to see

To separate us would be a mistake.


We may not be in our right minds

But it’s the only minds we have left

We may not be the thinking kind

It’s something you’ll have to accept.

When your bulb is not that bright.

There are few thoughts to regret.

We’d like to sing another line

But this is all we have left


Our mamas separated us at birth

The years completely froze.

We lived our lives in disarray

Until we found Kompoz. 🙂

So now we celebrate this truth

By writing down the rest

We call on you Our fans so true

To sing our Right Minds Left

Serrated – A Kompoz Collaboration Release!

Reading Time: 2 minutes




And how did this happen?

I came across this on Kompoz and really digged it. As a somewhat closeted metal head I simply love this stuff and I followed its progress from demo to finished. But I guess it wasn’t quite finished and they were kind of looking for a possible second vocalist. Billy asked me if I was interested.

Really? Seriously? Hahah, yeah sure. Shitting bricks I did give it a tentative try and I loved it. Billy had a fairly specific vision of what he wanted and after a few tries I did get it just right. Those vocals were added as a second verse and I couldn’t be happier with the result.

The next metal track is I would say a couple of steps up from this and who knows what’s next. I’m finally doing something I always wanted to try but thought I’d never have the balls to try.

Singers talk about finding their voice. I may not have decided which of the styles I play around with is truly me, but I think this comes very close to what I want to do. Another tool in the toolbox and another bit of polish on the confidence.

Verse I:

Serrated blade, caress my skin, and slowly let your work begin

I feel the cool, I feel the warm, I see the red.

From blue to red I’ve heard it said, I see it now, it’s in my head

I have control, you have control, now we are one.

Each kiss from you is burning hot my head explodes and time is stops

it feels so good, it hurts just right, now I’m alive.

Serrated blade, a gift of love, a time for us to share our trove

of secret times and secret deeds the scarring skin.


Serration, caress my skin

Serration, you know my world

Serrated, each cut a gift of love

Serrated, signed in blood

Verse II:

I lift my shirt for you today, where should we go, where should we play

I want to feel your loving touch, I want to be

Lay yourself across my skin and let the loving time begin

bring out my juice, for I am ripe I’m here for you.

each little slice, each little cut, each little rip, each little tear

I know you care, I know you love, I know your here

I give to you, you give to me, it’s up to us that we agree,

I’m here with you, your here with me, let’s begin

Time is gone, and here is now, you let me flow, you show me how

I’m here for you, you do me right, don’t stop now
