Description
A sort of homage to a group Who should need no introduction...not a "tribute" band slavish copy but an attempt to get a taste of a notion of the sound and style... I sort of improvised around three of the chords that Mr Townsend uses and came up with this....not a cover,not a copy not a lot of cop really but Biscuit wanted in on something....cool for cats ! play loud, but watch them drums.

Great track !
Chris, this is very nicely arranged, I love the drums you used here, and the recording is very clean. Combined to your amazing skills it makes a great song.

Very much enjoyed this. And oh, BTW, this cat rocks !!!! :-)

Who??
Has bits of Won't Get Fooled again and the other one that I can't remember the name of right now which is annoying. Good intro, builds up well to the chorus and nice solo work
Jarvoid said 2435 days ago (January 23rd, 2011)
Has bits of a lot of stuff
in style and execution and a bit of Pinball,yeah some WGFA and then snippets of Ox like bass....cos Entwhistle played it like a lead instrument...bless him wherever he and Moonie are now.

Townsend and Entwhistle(Bass)
and shades of Mad Man Moon...the only geezer I left out was Daltrey..no way am I going to try and sing in his style!

Ezdrummer is still not responding to instructions as we discussed butit is still easily useable and should be called P**seasydrummer cos it is great.

you to mention Biscuits contribution to this piece,she put in a lot of hard work.Glad the "shades" worked because i wanted exactly that...not a copy of one of their songs but an idea that this is the sound of.Worked for you then?

michaeljayklein said 2436 days ago (January 22nd, 2011)
You know...
...one thing I greatly enjoy about your work is that it's always inventive and full of wonderfully rewarding and inventive surprises Chris. To carve a niche like that makes you stand out from the rest (so my momma told me when I was lad). Well done here (alas I'm not familiar with the work of Mr. Townsend--I'm backward that way), but it sounded delicious to these ears. Thanks again! Michael

The Who...
one of my fave bands....and if you wanted to listen there is a huge back catalogue...As to the first line of your comment,I try,I am very trying it has been said.....but I take that as a great compliment and thank you very much...

Who else?
Biscuit looks like she's seriously wailing. Eatcher heart out, Pete!

I don't guess I ever noticed, but yeh, Mr. Townsend does use these three chords a lot, doesn't he?

Jarvoid said 2435 days ago (January 23rd, 2011)
Oh yes ,but
often to much greater effect...and he uses some others as well....I just think these are a "signature" sound.......I hope he don't find out .yikes...thanks for stopping in and having a listen.

I have to prise that guitar off of biscuit after every recording sesh...she loves it .

It's a toy, Mrs. Walker, it's a toy!
That cat can sure play, even if he only knows three chords. Now, even though you contributed cool drums on this Chris, I think you should go for the Daltry vocals next. Yeah, that'd be perfecto ;-)

Jarvoid said 2435 days ago (January 23rd, 2011)
And so many
more...Biscuit gave it rice and done good.....I really am not sure about a Daltry vocal....I could spin the microphone round and throw it in the air......I'd probably drop it when it came back down thoughh...arf.

Thanks for dropping in

Big fan of mr.Townshend!
I have a lot of demoalbums of Pete Townshend where he plays the complete who songs on his own. You sound a bit like him here.
Dig this stuff!
And the albumart is hilarious.
Glad my cats don't play, lol

The title sounds like it could be a Chas and Dave song. A nice live feel to this and a real foot tapper. I love the picture as well.

Is that really your kitty, Biscuit,
in the picture?
Have you got a budgie that plays xylophone?
Regardless, this was terrific no matter who or what played it. Chris, you are amazing. Thanks.

No...not
a xylophone playing budgie...it plays the euphonium !

Yes that really is Biscuit,the real deal including the real fake artwork of the guitar. Shewas playing with a piece of string and I just captured the moment ...it was a happy accident and fell right into my lap when I was thinking of artwork for the song.


Cheers Char
