An Unreleased/Never-To-Be Released Track! Tippy-Top Secret and Available Only Here!
Our cover version of The Special AKA's 1984 ska classic "Free Nelson Mandela" with the lyrics newly re-modified by yours truly, and now directed at Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. Entitled "Free Venezuela" the song could be/would be/should be an outright sing-a-long/dance-a-long hit. Alas, we were denied clearance by the powers that be. C'est la vie. Enjoy it here, and only here:

"Fenwicks For Freedom" Tour with Big D and
The Kids Table!
Shot at the Knitting Factory NYC and at Fuel in Jacksonville
Florida. Nuthin' even remotely fancy, but it kinda sorta
captures the fun: view....
Again! Live at Studio A:
A chunk of live video some 'Wick-headed kid in Miami
took on his cell-phone of a bit of our cover song of
The Special AKA's "Free Nelson Mandela" (now
"Free Venezuela"). Take that Chavez! view....
How Evil are Your Fenwicks?

video: A video demo for our song "No
One Is Coming", apparently now destined to be
on the "Dozers" movie soundtrack. A very merry,
musical case for Secular Humanism: view....
FOUR BRAND NEW SONGS FROM THE FENWICKS' FORTHCOMING CD "More Is More"
1. Devil's Den ("Too Dumb To Die"). A danceable ditty, about true love, and zombie hunting...
2. Begging For The Bullet. The single greatest song ever written, (or at the very least, the single greatest song ever written about a "Senile Avenging Jewish Werewolf")...
3. Preeminent Domain. Our anti-Eminent Domain anthem in the Battle for Private Property Rights...
4. Sleep Tight. A vicious little break-up lullaby. With a guest vocal by global Dancehall Diva, the ever exquisite Madelin Zero...
EATEN ALIVE! AND THE FENWICKS SING ABOUT IT...
good news/bad news. The bad news is: Schub's heart has
been ripped out and eaten by ghouls. The good news is:
it's only a movie- a new indie horror flick about flesh-eating
ghouls called "Devil's Den"
directed by Jeff Burr. Not only did I get to play the
quintessential annoying (hence doomed) side-kick, but
your very own Fenwicks got to write the title track "Devil's
Den (Too Dumb to Die)". Written, recorded,
mixed and mastered in a blistering 48 hours by me, Jim
and our genius keyboard player/resident producer Jon Marshall
Smith... Download the very Ska-ry Song now: mp3
THIS THE "OBJECTIVIST BOB DYLAN"?
and Aloha all you freedom-luvin' Fenwick fans! Wanna
very first to hear the brand new Fenwicks song:
The Fenwicks' musical/lyrical answer to the Supreme
decision on "Eminent Domain"?...
To quote my intellectual hero Ayn Rand: "Without
rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has
to sustain his
life by his own effort, the man who has no right to
the product of
his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man
while others dispose of his product is a slave".
Well, we ain't
slaves, and this won't stand- true? True! What to do?
Sing along for
starters. Loud! Louder!! Loudly enough for your Congressmen
Oh and um, one prefatory qualifier: this is what we
here in Camp
Fenwick call a "Ruff-ruff/Scratch" demo, recorded
in one truly rowdy
take, in the living room of our bass player Ed Richardson's
Jacksonville- ie. no horns, and no drums yet.... still
yet still kinda effective wethinks! Strictly for you
'Wick-heads.... Now click on this: mp3
FENWICKS REPRESENT THE VANS WARPED TOUR ON NBC
On August 2nd 2005,
Jacksonville Florida’s NBC affiliate First Coast News
WTLV-Channel 12, opted to have your very own Fenwicks
interviewed on their Morning Show (at 6:15 in the morning!)...
Can you imagine?! No need.
OK. Lemme explain. (This is Schub here...) See um, my whole
life I’ve dreamed of playing guitar and writing music.
Only problem being: I only know 3 chords (A, D and sometimes
G), and the simple fact that I’m already in a band
with one genius guitar player, this guy named Jimmie Corrieri.
And so I’ve resigned myself to just writing the lyrics
and singing the songs. Until now! Bear witness people, to
the new song I just wrote. The first song I’ve ever
written both the words AND music to, (and depending on how
you like it, possibly the last). One final disclaimer: Please
note: Obviously this is an acoustic, first run rehearsal,
with just Jim and Ed, shot in Ed’s living room. One
day soon we’ll expose the full band to it. And very
special thanks to our newest Fenwick Jon Marshal Smith for
shooting and editing this baby on the spot!
FENWICKS: LIVE AND UNLEASHED AT CLUB LINGERIE LOS ANGELES...
Available now, for your downloading pleasure, two
brand new Fenwick videos, "Truth & Memory"
and "You, Me and Heresy".
Shot live at Hollywood's legendary Club Lingerie
by Robert M.Young (director of Paul
Simon's "One Trick Pony",
"Dominick & Eugene" and "Caught"),
Fidel Gruber and John Goodner, and edited by the aforementioned
Mr. Fidel Gruber. These vids capture all the sweaty
shenanigans. Click and enjoy....
year was: Nineteeneightysomething. The location was: the
basement of NYU's Weinstein Dormitory. Our mental state
was: young and inebriated...very. Our hero, America's
greatest living actor, (and at the time mine and Jim's
roommate), burst in on an early Fenwicks rehearsal of
the song "Can You Tell Me".
The result was a mess. Enjoy, as Jim Corrieri introduces
this recently re-discovered auditory aberration. (For
the record, that's Schub and Jim conducting and "singing",
Phil yelling and "rapping", and all of us hyperventilating...)
And yes, Phil himself, has quite humbly sanctioned this
yourself, then click one of the links below...
Directed by Academy Award Nominee Bennett Miller ("Capote"), the
"Another Deadly Mother" video was
shot with no money, lots of chocolate covered espresso beans,
in 24 sleepless
hours back when we were all still babies, and
The Fenwicks were still a mere duo. This is the video I gave to Lynyrd
Skynyrd's drummer Artimus Pyle,
while I was still working as a bell-boy in NYC.
Artimus watched it, had a vision, quit Skynyrd,
flew Jim and I to Jacksonville, and the rest is Ska-history!
