Description
A little slice of indie. I've been away for a few months, getting married in France. This was recorded a couple of months back but I never posted it, intending to go back and tweak it. Everything I did seemed to take out the raw feel so I've left it as it was originally recorded. A cheeky slice of pop with a real message.

The photograph is my lovely wife Christine, on our wedding day.

Peace
Paddy

it's spelled "color"
great bright chorus. really like the drumming on this one. the rhythm reminds of late 80's college rock - your stuff always has a great nostalgic feel, makes me want to smoke, drink coors light out of a keg, eat pizza, and feel up a girl from ohio on a moldy couch. i like how the tune cranks up from the first chorus, too.

Rock
Absolutely divine when the distortion comes in. Definitely something I would have seen on 120 minutes back in 1990. Or, is that 120 parsecs in metric? Either way, love the raw feel. I'm glad you kept it loose and real.

Good stuff
I like the rawness of this performance...it rocks, shades of REM and GBV and maybe a bit of Camper Van Beethoven too. Good chorus
