Both Stephen and Snake have been active in music for quite a while. These pages present a Discography of their recordings and compositions, both separately and together, with audio clips that you can play to hear how their music has evolved (click on the blue song titles). We've tried to keep this in a more-or-less chronological order by release date although this may not be completely accurate, particularly in the case of re-releases.

Please note that, although we'd like very much to be able to provide full, downloadable songs, in many cases copyright restrictions prohibit us from doing so. In these cases we're limited to providing shorter clips.

Release information: This is an Asian issue of the first Orpheus album. Its origins are unclear. We've been told that
     "First Records" was set up by the US military to offer recordings to personnel stationed in the Far East, but we
     have been able to find any confirmation of this. Therefore, until we learn differently, we're treating this as an Asian
     "bootleg" release. The prevalence of the Chinese characters on the label and the back of the jacket lend credence to
     our position.

1971: STEVE KACZOROWSKI
Steve Kaczorowski

Steve Kaczorowski
This is totally bizarre.

In 1971, a high school senior from Long Island named Steve Kaczorowski put out an album which included two songs from Orpheus 4, one of which (Big Green Pearl) he re-recorded, and the other of which (Monkey Demon) he simply sang over Stephen's voice, a la karaoke. He claimed writer's and publisher's credits for the songs, and also claimed that several well-known musicians had backed him on the album, which he claimed was on the United Artists label (actually a counterfeit). And, as if this wasn't enough, he did it again in 1976 with Rainbow Peddler, calling himself Steve Drake!
There's a lot more to the story; you can read it at http://www.lysergia.com/LamaWorkshop/Kacz/lamaKacz.htm.

Some more drilling has turned up a bit more info - as recently as 1999, our boy was keeping up the charade. Here's a link to an article from the Suffolk (Long Island) Times Online that you should find interesting:

http://www.timesreview.com/_st_html/st03-16-00/stories/news2.htm

Mr. Kaczorowski passed away on March 17, 2009, after a lifelong battle with hemophilia.
His "final review" can be found here.
