Plus by FST


Four Stories Tall



As promised, FST has been hard at work on our third release; Plus

This is our first release with the newest member of FST, and current embodiment of Huehuecóyotl, a.k.a. Phil Bush.



A tale about the human condition; focusing on our insatiable quest for energy and the illusion of security.


Winds of Fortune

The greatest fortune is realizing that you are fortunate.


Broken Switch

Have a plan? Think again.  

Think you have a problem?  It’s probably pretty minor compared to what others are facing.

A reminder that expectations are future disappointments.  


20 Years

Sometimes you can return home.  Sometimes it’s best to not give in to the desire to do so.


I Can’t Stay Too Long

Time is a precious commodity. Whether it is time you want to spend or time you are obliged to spend, spend it wisely. You only have a limited amount, but keep your chin up. Once you’ve spent all you have here, there is hope you will have more to spend elsewhere.

Minus – Four Stories Tall’s latest EP release.

Four Stories Tall is proud to announce the release of the Minus EP. This offering is our first release since The Road West and takes listeners on a musical rollercoaster ride that is disturbing one moment, peaceful the next and even provides a bit of humor here and there. Minus is currently available for download at all major digital music retailers (iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby) and is streaming on every streaming service that is worth your time.

Sonic Biscuit

Music aficionados!

FST’s own Mark Murray has launched his own record label!

Why would he do this when the traditional record label is going the way of the dinosaur and sales of physical recordings is virtually gone?  Well, you are going to have to check out his website to find out!

Also, for the sake of all things sacred, or to merely cement the fact that you are generally an all-around good person, please follow Sonic Biscuit on Twitter and like it on Facebook

Stay tuned for info on Four Stories Tall’s latest music release!

Live From The Field



Four Stories Tall EP Release

FST has decided that instead of releasing a full length album, we’ll release two EPs!  The first EP, tentatively titled Minus, will have four songs on it, they are:



A short ditty on the daily challenges of dealing with the Ideal Gas Law.  FST would also like to recognize Boyle’s LawCharles’s Law and Avogadro’s Law.



Nothing funny here.  A commentary on the Globalization and Social Mediatization of Terrorism.



A treatise on whether the place with the guy with the pointy stick is Exothermic or Endothermic.  Features Electronic Percussion, Upright Electric Bass and Allen Wrench.  And for the record, FST’s stance is that Hell is Exothermic.  Side Note – the melting point of Sulfur is 115.2°C


The Storm

A nod to the Narrator’s realization in Poe’s Descent into the Maelström, that the Maelström is a beautiful and awesome creation.  Also an acknowledgement that U K’ux Kaj is doing a hell of a job.  Alternate title is Welcome To Texas!


Due to each band member’s involvement in Lepidopterology and Coleopterology we often find that our schedules are at odds with each other.  But our dedication to our fan base demands that we be productive even when the entire band is not available.  This EP is the result of that unwavering dedication.  All of the songs on this EP were recorded minus one of the band members; most of the songs were written and recorded in a single day.  Of course, we then went on to spend countless hours debating mixes, additions, subtractions, redactions and various minutia.  All unresolved debates were resolved by a combination of Rock, Paper, Scissors and Leg Wrestling.

We hope y’all enjoy the new EP!


¿Three Stories Tall?

¿Three Stories Tall?

We played at the Cousin’s Birthday Party last Saturday.  Unfortunately Mr. Murray couldn’t make it (we think he went to Thailand for some low cost surgery).

I guess that make us Three Stories Tall.

A Great Time was had by all.



Axe Wielder Tramples Through Village, Deafening Hundreds of Small Children

meet the imitable mr Phil Bush.  

after years of dropping hints in his ear (let's face it, i begged him) to come lend his talents he succumbed to my tenacity.  Frankly, the sobbing– of him asking me to stop, was unnerving. 
I first saw him playing gee-tar at a free concert in the West End for an outfit called Princess Tex.  Later on i was in a band with him for a short time called Planet X.  As with all bands, we were gonna be famous until the bass player put the mustard knife in the mayonnaise jar.
Soon we will be releasing some songs with His Mighty Power present; and you will see why we are excited and lucky to have him on board.  Not to mention he brings Guinness.
side note:  just a helpful hint:  do not touch areas on your smoker/grill that are close to the firebox.  No need for details, just trust me on this one.
May your day be filled with butterflies, flitting from flower to flower.
