Description
My tribute to Canadian culture hero Marshall McLuhan (by way of Haskell Wexler). As always, I didn't let lack of familiarity with the subject hinder me!

Lyrics
we got a brand new hazard - yeah
up to now it's been a secret that ya missed
i'll tell you all about it - yeah
after this.

designated villains
but their shelf life's overaged
another batch waiting there
behind the stage

everyone's invited
they're gonna take ya back to school
but it's hard to get excited
if it's medium cool

planetary surface - hey
if anybody gives a heck in a handbag son
they can't come up with any other way
so think of 1.

voice of the resistance
or just Kapital's power tool
hard to tell the difference
when it's medium cool

medium cool

medium. Love the sounds, mix, and delivery. Got that raw edgy-ness of the alt-rock scene.

thanks for the dl :)

most of the music I like has a certain "rawness" to it so I always go for that. Plus it takes some skill to get things really smooth so it's just as well! thanks for checking it out!

love the vibe. drums are huge, vox are original, and the guitar solo rocks! your music is so consistently awesome...thanks for posting!
Relic67 said 2374 days ago (February 21st, 2011)
thanks
the guitar solo was my favourite part. I had one I thought was better but the computer crashed before I could save it. and they say Macs don't do that, LOL. I still love my mac though.
thanks for listening and commenting!

a couple of the drum loops were called "dirty south".... I don't know what that is, but they sounded cool to my northern ears. thanks a lot for listening!

You really bought it on this one. A little more than medium cool.

Great tune.

drums are addictive drums, used some loops from Groove Monkee - I really like their loop sets. the choruses were tapped in on the keyboard as I couldn't find a loop to match.
really glad you liked!

I doubt I could make head or tail of the great man's abstruse theories, but there seems to be a somewhat mischievous vibe to some of his pronouncements which I find appealing....

yeah the whole song is really just there to have something around the guitar solo.
I was trying out a new digitech "modelling guitar processor"
I always have fun playing with wah pedals but I haven't had good luck with the dunlops... they seem to develop "scratchy pots"
anyway, thanks for listening!

Extra Medium Cool
Wow. Funky enough to be a Prince jam. The guitar work in this is so precise it's pornographic. And the drums take it to another sphere. Such a jam. DL.

I'm going to have to fess up that the "guitar" on one side is a GB software instrument called "Mosh Pit" HA HA HA! I played real guitar off to the other side though. thanks so much for listening and DL'ing!

XL cool
Dude i completely missed this. Love it. I love all the space and the dance groove - that it can't decide what kind of dance tune to be, 80's, 50's, daft punk, it's confused! GREAT guitar work. those little riffs are killer and the solo is just over the top good. great production on the guitars too. i'm ashamed to say i had to look up marshall mcluhan. and i have a degree in rhetoric and pop culture studies. i guess my degree isn't worth much. just like the rest of the world to completely ignore canada.
