Lyrics
(I Told You Once, I Told You Twice
Keep Out of My Business)

You Have a Particular Charisma
I'll Have to Give You That
But You're Gonna Have to Learn Quickly
Grow Up, Stop Being a Brat

They'll Eat You
They'll Use You
They'll Spit You Out

They'll Love You
They'll Hate You
They'll Make You Shout

They'll Do You
They'll Kill You
They'll Take a Lot

They'll Stick You
They'll Kick You
They'll Call You Hot

Then One Day
You're Old You're Grey

(Told You, Don't Bother,
'Cause I'll Do All You Wanna Do)

You Have a Particular Charisma
You Think You Have All the Skills
Stardom, Massive Plasma
Beverly F*king Hills

Then One Day
You're Old You're Grey

Diviner said 3316 days ago (November 16th, 2008)
Very nice
Loved it from the start. The drums are great and the rest of the music sits so well. Really impressed, I think this one is the best produced track so far. The only only thing against this tack is the sudden finish, however that is so small compared to the rest of the track. The vocals are really good and well sung, both by you and of course Becca. Brilliant track Len.

Fantastic, what a start!

Where does that big guitar sound come from?

Becca's voice is simply excellent and works really well with your spoken/declamatory style.

I loved the short "interludes" where you introduce new sounds.

Amazing creativity and invention :)

Thank you both!
Yes, you must upgrade - it really is worth it. I had 7 of my vocal tracks and 3 of Becca's each with a ridiculous amount of plug-ins. Together with the many instrument tracks again all with lots of plug-ins. Even my mac pro with 6GB was really struggling and kept freezing on me. So, too many effects all at once.
Thanks again Steve. Really pleased you liked it.

Big n bold
A 1' 40" intro of that standard? - you know you're in for a treat. Great big hypnotic beat with that OTT guitar sound makes my kind of music. Love the sentiment of your lyrics and that addition of Bex's voice is totally appropriate and in at the right places. Then at 3'40" more gigantic guitar to remind us where we started. This song flies by and feels a lot quicker than the total playing time shows. Always a good sign.

Solid piece of work, Len. Did anyone mention Zappa in the house...?

Cheers!

Jim - really pleased you liked it. This one seemed to take a lot longer than usual. Instead of rushing with it - I spent a lot of time just tweaking - it seems to have paid off. I am usually just too impatient to get them finished. I love Becca's voice.
Thanks for the Zappa comparison - very pleased with that, used to be a big fan.
Always happy when someone downloads too. Thanks again Jim. I'd love to buy you a GandT - ever get to London?

mama warned me about this kind of song
- the intro gives you a look and the next thing you know the tune is grinding on your leg.

this tune is a veritable bag of rock 'n roll tricks - girl/guy vocals, distorted backups, dirty groove, howling guitars, big percussion, paranoid lyrics - love it!

apb said 3315 days ago (November 17th, 2008)
Gold and bold ..

Firstly I also think that combining the seemingly quite opposing styles of Becca and your good self was quite mad .. but yet, you both managed to really make it work- the contrast is really very appealing... and fitting to the song.

Secondly, the rocky opening (I thought of Twisted Sister for a sec) turning into more tribal: "I eat cannibals" .. lol kinda drumming, and synth usage- awesome.

Guitar adds that rockier/funky edgyness- extra spice to the big cooking pot .. the solo serves the song (if you added a little wild wahing .. would have reminded me of earlier Prince)... another class addition.

Only additions I would suggest are to end that wicked funky 80s breakdown section with a short dead-stop before continuing into the short outro/fade (around 5:19) .. perhaps a short reversed vamp or just snare perhaps to bridge the gap. And, perhaps to re-look at how your effecting your voice: I'd ease of a little on the kinda megaphone-esque touch in general.. and perhaps just a very short echo/reverb/delay .. I liked the variation at the 3:04 section (but I don't mean as much as that for the verses).

Most impressive and accomplished upload I've heard from you Len by far.. alot of hard work went into this and it's paying dividends... no idea why I got a mention, but if I helped in some way for you to produce this fine example of your work .. I'm well chuffed, thanks my friend and thanks for the copy I now have :o)

Great!
I'm ashamed to say that I haven't visited your pages nearly enough Len - for which apologies. This is incredible! What a big sound - sounds like it's been produced by Trevor Horn for an old ZTT band - really massive 80's funk sound, and as others have said, the dual vocals work superbly.

Really great stuff! The "told you once' refrain is magic -

Peculiar Charisma
Len, I really love your guitar work on this little number. You got all leady on us. Cool.

Becca's vocals are really wondermous. What a great team effort.

You always have this primal rhythmic sense and this is proof positive of that gift. I always said that Vic Holman would be my drummer if I had a band, but maybe I'll have 2 drummers? Just a thought.

Thanks for a energetic and fantastic tune.

She can sing, that's for sure.
You know, you are the only one that picked up on that (maybe subconciously) there are actually two drum kits playing. I've always loved bands with two kits and always been a frustrated drummer - I'd love to be one of the two drummers in your band. I used to like the drums in a British band fronted by someone not now mentionable. Don't know if he was known in the States.
Thanks, as always, for the listen Bob and take care.

Two things stand out:
the female vocal. (Yours is not bad at all, but Becca's part really brings this to life.) And that bass. Awesome sound.

Pretty cool song overall.

leap4rog said 3251 days ago (January 20th, 2009)
love it
First off-- this is perfect. So let me try to f*ck it up.

As I listened I wanted the male voice to be stronger. I also wanted the something extra that hits at 5:04 to come a littler earlier-- I don't know, maybe I'm an impatient listener. But I wanted to be taken out a little stronger.

But this is great. I loved the industrial stylings. I reminds me of a Fernand Léger painting. (http://jerryandmartha.com/yourdailyart/images/leger.jpg)

smokey bacon jnr said 3239 days ago (February 1st, 2009)
great drums
Love the drums on this! Massive rhythm and groove with the bassline (which is awesome). The only thing I would criticise is the the lyrics - not the singing but the actual words themselves. They just felt a bit weak to me - rhyming that and brat seemed a bit forced - not a natural flow. Same with skills and Beverley Hills. I admire anyone who attempts to write a lyric, it's really putting yourself on the line, but I wasn't convinced by this one. Bloody good tune though.

Thanks for dropping by and the lovely comment. Becca Johnson is the female singer, there is a link to her page in the description above if you want to check out her songs.
She also sings on my latest http://www.macjams.com/song/50670 in which she sings very sexily.
Thanks again.

Big Sound
Love the big sound and I see why you say 'Massive thank you to the lovely Becca Johnson' you two doo sound good together - only one minor criticism:
the lead guitar in the intro is a bit loose (timing wise) and might have been better with it being a bit more 'off the wall'

Still a good thing you have given us tho.... Thanx
