Ship of Fools (Lazlo Bane)
After many months of editing I’m very excited to finally debut Lazlo Bane’s cover of World Party’s “Ship of Fools” by one of my favorite songwriters, Karl Wallinger. My 8 yr old daughter assures me this is her favorite video and hopefully you’ll dig it too. Come for the great song, stay for the monsters, the pyrotechnics, the animation, the naked band members, and the environmental message. It’s fun for the whole family. Shout out to Larry Goldings for helping out on the keys and to my wife, Brooke, for the bass drum head artwork and logo at the end. Make every day Earth Day and save our planet. ☮️🌎❤️👍🏻
Trampoline (QC) by Lazlo Bane
When we wrote Trampoline for our second album, we had dreams of it becoming our first hit single. It wasn’t; Superman took that spot. Here we are dreaming all over again - recording it at Abbey Road and singing it from the rooftops to the mountain tops. Don’t miss the surprise ending to find out what our drummer, Chicken, actually tastes like. Enjoy!😁 Chad Fischer - Lead Vocals, Guitar, Keys Chicken - Drums, Vocals Tim Bright - Guitars, Vocals Chris Link - Bass, Vocals Trampoline written by Fischer/Link/Bright Produced & Directed by Chad Fischer Special thanks to Fred Kron for the epic orchestration.

Big Shot (performed by GoldFisch) featuring Ron Burgundy😉
When I heard “Big Shot” on The Boys (great show, btw) it reminded me of how much I loved playing Billy Joel songs with Larry Goldings at Camp Encore back in the day. It also reminded me of another guy who thinks he’s a big shot. Here we are back together again kicking out the jams. Enjoy! And remember, keep it classy, America. Streaming now on Lazlo Bane’s new album, Someday We’ll Be Together.
I’ll Do Everything
Back in 1995 this song, written with Jonathan Abarbanel, was featured on KROQ’s Sunday night local hour and the following Monday morning the phone started ringing with A&R people asking “who is Lazlo Bane and when’s his next show?” Having no band, I quickly threw one together with all stars, Lyle Workman, Josh Freese and Chris MacDonald, and a Viper Room showcase gig was booked. Here is my quarantine cover of I’ll Do Everything celebrating the rerelease of the first 1997 Lazlo Bane album, 11 Transistor. Enjoy! Streaming now on Lazlo Bane’s new album, Someday We’ll Be Together.
You've Got A Friend (QC)
This quarantine cover of You've Got A Friend is a tribute to my old neighborhood, Laurel Canyon, and the many friendships made during that time. Featured here are my old next door neighbors, Louise Goffin, whose mother, Carole King, wrote this legendary song, and Dan Rothchild, whose father was legendary producer, Paul Rothchild. My childhood friend, Larry Goldings and I used to cover this song when we were teenagers and now he plays piano with James Taylor. And finally, Colin Hay, whose invaluable friendship I have cherished throughout my professional and personal life. Enjoy! Streaming now on Lazlo Bane’s new album, Someday We’ll Be Together.

Nature's Way (Spirit)
