Description
Inspired by the slow opening to dance tempo change of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive". Otherwise it sounds nothing like it. A nod to Eno's "Third Uncle" on the vocals. Live bass, guitars, and synths with drum loops and effects.

Lyrics
turn it over
turn it on
turn the tables
turn the corner
turn it up
turn it down
turn your partner
turn the page

take it easy
take a powder
take a flying leap
take cover
take comfort
take a stand
take it on the chin

take a minute
take a minute

don't have to understand it to like it
i don't have to understand to know that i like it.

here's a case in point. i like the intro, and it builds up a great beat. but i have no idea what's it's saying. nor what the picture is.

but that's OK - i like it!

thanks

The picture
is of a running pulse jet engine test I found on google searching with the word "pulse". As for the lyrics - I'll post them when I get home. Thanks for commenting.

Great Wall of Sound
Got instantly caught by the intro. Great building up. Love the energy and the thickness of sound. Very interesting mix of influences. Great job, Bud. Downloaded.

I can't seem to avoid the wall
hard as I try - it just seems to build itself. I'm sure it's something to do with insecurity. That - and all the drugs I took when I was younger. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks Vic -
these days as usual I just sit down and go. Not sure where I'm headed but I love going down the rabbit hole. The heavy bass was inspired by some of the stuff Egobandit's been up to. Wish I had the patience (and ability) to develop the kind of intricate songcraft you manage to out out.

Neat...
...the second half reminds me, probably falsely 'cause it's been a while, of a heavier version of 'King's Led Hat'....

Really clicks along... Or stomps along... Or kicks, or pulses, along...

I'l have to give a listen to "King's Led Hat" (talking heads anagram - right?).

Man
This got heavy in a way I wasn't expecting after the intro. Great groove. This rocks.
bud said 3764 days ago (March 5th, 2007)
Two -
two mints in one. Don't know about you - but I find it hard to keep the weight off. Thanks for dropping by - your latest tune is a killer.

IN THE ACT
Red Handed New Stuff - great Layed Build and Insistence.

Could stand for the Vocal to have the same bite as the guitars, same level of punch.

Small matter, however in this House of Steel.

Good point on the vocals -
they could be more staccatto with bite. Thanks for the input.

bandit
Bud,
Great tune, Man. You one-upper Egobandit on this one. Totally hear the reference, having listened to every massively overdriven bass ditty he's done. Great build up to the -- what should I call it-- the heaviest shit I've heard in a while, that's it. The guitar is killer. The longer I listen the better it gets. Downloadin' it for pumpin some iron tomorrow at the gym. REALLY great.

bud said 3762 days ago (March 7th, 2007)
The bandit still has the heaviest
game in town - I just had fun playin it. Glad you enjoyed it so much. My guitar playing is very limited - all I can do is play with more or less intensity - and sometimes I get lucky. Guess this was one of those times. Thanks for the props.

Stunner
Lyrics are killer, THis is driving force pulsating magma, sharks with frickin laser beams on thier heads.
The build up is explosive then the drive of the bass and guitar kicks in and I dont know if the b surfers took over your page or eno was driving a Mac truck through my studio cool as all hell or Heck, greatness.
bud said 3762 days ago (March 7th, 2007)
I love the image of Eno driving a Mack
truck - and any b surfer ref is much appreciated. But really you've raised the bar around here for sonic mayhem - I'm just tryin to keep up.

ROBOT RAWK
total trip this, and i went thru several moods while listening with my mouth as well as ears open wide. the loose & delicate pseudo structure at beginning had me savoring the horns imitating an Illinois Central Pacific train, and i thought the piece was finished - only to be swept away by the Robot 2-Step. that crashing, slamming, driving stuff is waaaay good! i was transformed into something wanting to scream "CHUCK!" repeatedly. this is a wonderful listen, bud. i, too, am now inspired to pump iron. ;)
seriously - it's GREAT. anne
bud said 3754 days ago (March 14th, 2007)
Anne - your comments are really
appreciated. I'm a fan of your work and I'm really happy you dropped by. This tune was a lot of fun - I had no idea where it was goiing when I started and it took me on a trip I never could have planned. We're really lucky to live with technology that is so liberating - and easy to use too.

Listening as I write
Atmospheric intro err... a flat 5th I think did you know that interval was banned in medieval times for being 'of the devil?' - like the way the drums fade in - is pretty heavy man - Great vocals hardcore,kind of a prodigy spaceage feel - would be great track for a scifi cartoon.Like the way it breaks down to bass during the verse,wow and you keep the intro chords going through the song too.Love it!

Thanks for the play by play
I like to do that too. Nice tidbit about the devil's music - I kinda like the idea. Good ears on the chord through. It's on a three count against the 4/4 of the drums. When the drums first come in I shifted it to 4/4 for a few bars to lock the groove - then I slipped it back to the three. I don't know a damn thing about music theory - but I know what I like. Glad you liked it too.

Awesome
This is an awesome sweeping soundscape. I wish my songs were this textural. What did you use to get that distortion on your bass? Nice use of the 3/4 and 4/4 time overlaps.
