The posthumous release of NO CAREER is now available!

Please enjoy this final, 4 song free download – the only recordings with Nat on bass:

Farewell & Many Thanks Payday Comrades!

We’ve recently decided to pack it in and want you all to know how much we’ve appreciated your interest in our music and activities over the past four and a half years or so. You can still catch Rob drumming around town in the great punk outfit Fatalz. I’ll continue making lo-fi free downloads of new songs and performing voice and guitar stuff until I’m dead. Nat, who’s played some great bass with us since last fall, will get to pursue his life long dream of opening a bed & breakfast somewhere in Ladner made entirely of those little carbonation devices inside tall cans of Guinness.

Rob, Nat and I MUST thank Natasha, Brittany and Tondela for putting up with Payday all of this time! Thanks also to Jessica, Pat and Trevor, three people who’ve been to more Payday shows than even Rob or myself.

We also want to thank all the bands who’ve given us a chance to play with them since we started up (particularly those lovely fellas from Half Chinese, Harrison & Enzio) and the great folks who’ve recorded us on shoestring budgets with such care and intelligence: Felix, Paul , Pietro and Lee. Thanks also to Steven for all the great mastering jobs he’s done for us. Speaking of recording, the tracks with Nat on bass that we’ve been talking about since Christmas really do exist! It’ll be a great posthumous release entitled NO CAREER that should be out soon – another brilliant turn from sonic wizard Pietro! When we have it available for downloading I’ll post one last time here to let you know.

Thanks again for the great times and for listening Comrades!

Please enjoy this new collection of lo-fi acoustic guitar & voice songs.  A couple of them have been reinterpreted by Payday already.

Some others might be later.

PLEASE ENJOY & SHARE with friends:  This Culture Is Not Your Friend by Jeremy Todd (May 22, 2013)


POSTPONED due to last minute work stuff (how ironic) – new date to be announced soon – THANK YOU KRANKY CAFE!

We’re recording a 2-set live performance and invite you and your friends to be in the audience.

Hopefully it’ll turn out OK and we can include it in the Payday Millionaire free downloads catalogue.  Don’t miss this chance to be immortalized while calling us awful names between our songs (or perhaps buying us beers?).  We’ll try to capture at least seven new tracks and many of the oldies we’ve reworked with Nat on bass.

PLUS a Kranky Café Music Night is ALWAYS worth the effort!  Food, beer & wine will be available!

7-9pm ONLY, Friday, May 17, 2013

KRANKY CAFÉ,  228 E. 4th Ave., Vancouver

Absolutely FREE!

We’d like to play some shows around Vancouver this spring if you’ll have us.

We’re low maintenance, polite and inspiring – plus there’s three of us now.

Put on a concert with Payday Millionaire in 2013!

No Career, our first record w/ Nat on bass, should be available for free downloading any day now…


Please join us for a rare closing set by the recently three-pieced Payday Millionaire

on Wednesday Night, January 16, 2013, at The Railway Club in Vancouver.

New songs, old gems and oodles of cheque-to-cheque excitement await you.

But wait.  There’s more.

Fresh sounds from Confessions Of Owls open and The Enemy Feathers take on the middle spot with a brand new drummer!

Just FIVE MEASLY BUCKS to have it all – 8:30pm start.


Please join us for this great line-up,
Friday Night, November 16th, 2012 @ The Princeton Pub in Vancouver (1901 Powell Street, @ Victoria Dr).

That Kelly Boy start things off right sometime after 9pm.
Payday follow w/ 4 new songs in our set, Nat on bass and guitar pedals (holee crap)!
The Enemy Feathers take the stage next (w/ Jeremy of Payday helping out on drums for the last time),
followed by the always mighty Rain & The Sidewalk.

It might very well be free too…

New Video:

Payday Comrade Harrison Pratt (of Half Chinese and more) has uploaded another video of live Payday  to his youtube channel. We’ve only performed They Were Filming Outside My Building twice as a two-piece and Harrison ended up joining us on clarinet for both renditions.

First Payday Show w/ Nat On Bass

We’re playing our first show with Nat Paine on bass guitar this coming Saturday night, September 1rst, opening for Rob’s other band The Fatalz and soul stealers The Steady at the Princeton Pub, 1901 Powell Street in Van.

We’ll start up between 9:30 and 10pm with a shorter 6-7 song set (including the first two new ones we’ve written together as a three piece) — YAY!

The show will be free if we can help it — if it not it’ll probably be around $5 at the door. Please join us!
