My name is Mike Penny and I play the Tsugaru shamisen, a three-stringed fretless lute from Northern Japan. I studied in California as well as Japan, and now I make over-the-top 80s New Wave shami-pop, Baroque, symphonic/musical, and generally silly audio whirlwinds for The People™!

Have You No Soul?
A shamisen-spiked ditty to commemorate the short-lived romantic entanglement between Liz Lemon & MPO. Lyrics: Girlie you know It wasn't long ago that you had no flow Now you're too cool And you play me for the fool Baby, have you no Soul? You were lookin' through them shades At the girls and boys at play thinking "How can I relate?" But I finally coaxed you out And I smiled at you said "How about I take you out on a date™?" You and I Were riding sky high For a whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiile But it was just a matter of time The butterfly found a sweeter ride Where was it I left my heart? Cruisin' up and down the boulevard At the wheel, you by my side And then you found your stride That's when I fell by the wayside I'd die if it would make A girlie like you take another look at how you done did me I guess this is the end I guess I'll join the men in the dating videos You and I Were flying sky high For a whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiile But it was just a matter of time The butterfly found a sweeter ridemore

Perfect Alley Rare
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g12ZDrAqig This is an audio document of my quest to find the perfect alley in which to film the music video for this very song. Specifically, MPO is ”hoping to lean like Springsteen on a crumbly grey wall in worn out jeans.” The road is fraught with obstacles both physical and psychological. Self-doubt and second-guessing become like old friends as the trail of the elusive perfect alley grows ever colder. See/hear how we fare in "Perfect Alley Rare"!more

The Source!
Shamisen, vocals - Mike Penny (Lyrics) No fresh water In that spiny cactus Pearl of wisdom In me, anaphylaxis Premises reveal position Subtle methods of their attrition Listen not to wind that will Equivocate your standing still Always consider the source And just follow TRUE NORTH!more
