Lyrics
I Never Thought (They'd Blow The City Away)

i never thought i would see the day
they'd blow the city away
i never thought i'd see the day
no i didn't

i never knew what you were there
you didn't say what you knew was yeah
going to win the way
you know it's now

never knew the way
never knew the way
never knew the way

i never thought i would see the day
they'd blow the city away

(c) 2010 Bill Grundmann

I Never Thought
Really live feel to this. Good groove, nice guitar line. Vocs sound good wish I could understand the lyrics.

song pic
the song pic is actually the launch of STS-131 seen through the tree between the pad and the KSC

it's a shame that we seem to be near the end of US manned spaceflight for a while if not forever

Oh man - this is great
I knew you had this side - and this is a really fine tune. Great live sound - amazing actually.
Now it's time to explore the tree - this is so cool. What guitar are you playing - it sounds great - and the drum production is excellent. Vocals are spot on. Cities on Fire with Rock and Roll.

it's my old Kalamazoo single pickup electric. i used the GB 2 amp simulator, started with American clean distortion (or something like that) and tweaked it to form two different variants of guitar sound - i think i adjusted the mid and presence settings. i also used the built-in compressor set to 100% and a little echo

drums are Foundation Rock loop 8 - modified variously, and i penciled in some fills to give it a little life

no processing on the vocals (except a tight slapback echo and reverb) - at the end there are two pitch shifted versions for harmony (one up and one down) - i didn't feel a need to do any EQ on it - that kept it nice and unintelligible

all tracks got a large amount of "living room" reverb

glad you liked this

thanks

stream of consciousness?
Your consciousness is a lot more articulate than mine, judging from this song. When I try to improvise lyrics to music on the spot, it comes out unintelligible.

Nice band feel, by the way, I'd believe this was a tight band (of multiple people) if I didn't know otherwise.

I like this
I'd like to hear a studio sounding version to compare with. I get it that you were going for that live sound, like others I can't understand the lyrics, maybe that was intentional?

yes, unintelligibility was on purpose, the slap back echo did a fine job of that!

here's a different mix, with the "living room ambience" removed:

Ambience, blending, vox as instrument...
Rock is good. Always come back -- fly by? -- to drop little treats like this. I just compared this to the one you shared with jdholliday with the 'verb removed. While it's always good to hear the lyrics, there are times the vox is more of an instrument than a verbal necessity. I like this mix, it blends better. I like it a whole lot. I gotta have a copy -- thanks for the dl.

I don't think
I've heard this side of your music before Bill. This is so reminiscent of some of the early 70s stuff I used to listen to (what I can remember of it that is).
Great movement from the guits and drums - would love to hear a little more volume in the vocal.
Excellent.

Love the Live Feel
Great grunge. The guitar tones are killer. I can smell the smoke coming from a packed underground club. I can't really make out the vocals, but that just adds to the coolness.
