Description
I was in the mood for some RATty bass guitar, so Monday night I got busy and came up with this. Coincidentally, my buddy Smokey Bacon made a comment that he prefers my bass guitar driven tunes with squawky electronics, so Pete, this is for you man.

my very own 5x tune!
Sounds great. I do love that fuzzed out bass and synth combination! I like the drums in this - how did you get that avalanche of percussion? Thanks for the mention - I've got the flu and it made my day!!

Yeah!
Great riff.  I was thinking this had some smokey bacon flavour. Really liked the drum breakdown in the middle.   Bonus track at the end!

Yessiree...
...that bass really gets a swell workout on this Bob! This is a really great track and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that your vocal work and lyrics didn't give the melody line a good push too! Thanks for sharing this with us, Michael

wow
you can really make stuff like this that fast?
Really impressed, love the background vocals. The bass/synth combo is pretty awesome. As always, the artwork is enjoyed. Looks like me going to work on Monday a.m., (except better dressed)

Cool work Bob!
Great riff and a great sound.

I like the earlier description of an "avalanche of percussion".

I really like the arrangement on this with the changing textures. Elements of 60s psychedelia.

Far out man :)

Cheers

PAF...
No squawky electronics electronics in sight :-) Distinctive 5EA vocals that should be patented. I looked and I liked. Take care, Peter.

You know,
I think you've been hanging out with egobandit. The vox reminds me of his stuff. Still, it has the 5EA punch. Thanks.

I like the vocs plenty of attitude. Quirky synths and fuzzy guitars add to the flavor.

Look at me
You just can't beat a good distorted bass workin it's way along a funky riff, can you? Mr Bacon Is clearly a wise wise man and I'm glad you followed up on it! Cracking stuff! Five extra arms? Yeah probably. Five extra fingers? At least!

Love it!
I'm addicted to something about this vocal melody. I can't help but love the notes and the lyrics and the fact that the instrumental section is tight and kicking makes this awesome.

Thanks!
