Description
A song about a girl, a pill and the direct effect it had on an otherwise normal day. It was Tom Kenney's story, I just made it a song.

Lyrics
SHOULDA KNOWN WHEN YOU TOOK THAT PILL
THE SHAKES WERE COMIN' AND IT'S GONNA GET REAL
YOUR HEAD'LL MOVE AND YOUR FEET WILL SHAKE
YOU SHOULDA KNOWN THERE WAS NOTHING YOU COULD TAKE

I DIDN'T STAND IN THE WAY THAT NIGHT
YOU JUST DID WHAT YOU THOUGHT WAS RIGHT
I JUST STOOD AND I DIDN'T SPEAK
I DIDN'T THINK THAT YOU WERE THAT WEAK

CHORUS
IT'S A TERRIBLE TIME
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE TIME
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY

NOW YOU'RE TALKIN' TALKIN' WITH A LISP
AND YOU'RE MOVING YOUR HIPS TO THIS
AND YOUR LEGS STILL GO ON FOR MILES
AND YOUR FACE HASN'T LOST IT'S STYLE

NOW I SEE YA WALKING WITH THAT GUY
I SHOULDA KNOWN IT WAS JUST A LIE
YOU TOOK THAT PILL AND NOW YOU'RE GONE
YOU SHOULDA - SHOULDA - SHOULDA BEEN STRONG

IT'S A TERRIBLE TIME
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE TIME
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY

IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY
IT'S A TERRIBLE DAY

You took an "instant punk" pill, didn't you ? very direct, straight to the point song. I like this flanger, it's like some sort of throbbing organic valve pumping underneath the song. Downloaded.

Having been a first generation...
....original UK punk at the 1976/77 outbreak, I think you have totally captured the essence of garage/punk/homebrew.

And, I think your singing on all the trax I've played is fine. Suits what your doing. You don't sound like him but I hear a bit of Beck going on here, not just in this tune, but in your experimentation and obvious lust for the music.

Your production techniques will come with practice, but don't let that cloud your creative streak. Better to have a sh*t mix with a sh*t-hot song than a sh*t song that has a hot mix (what??!!)

Well, that's what I'm thinkin' anyway....!

That's some of the best advice I've had here. Glad to see it has Scottish roots. Thanks for the compliments and the encouragement.

PUNK
Thanks lava. I really just let it go on this one and it's encouraging to hear that it was ok, besides the obvious production issues.

I'm happy to have any comment at all.

Never mind the Sex Pistols...
I didn't find your voice to be unfortunate for me at all. Agree with the other commenters, great driving punk sound plus the artwork is just awesome.

I'm no longer sitting in front of my computer every day, so I no longer have the pleasure of listening to the best original music ever. It's hit or miss with MacJams these days. I try to get on to listen and comment and too often the site is down. I'... [see more]
