This is very good. Once again you're reminding me of XTC at their absolute best! Great writing and a simply astounding arrangement! Stellar production! Downloaded!

Thanks, Alec
I checked out your latest before responding, and it made mine seem very odd in comparison! But I take your point about XTC and am very happy to be compared to them. This tune needs a lot of tweaking (if not total rerecording) but I thought it was at a point where I could make it available for criticism. Also, Spartacus (the TV show) is just brilliant!

I recorded most of it back to front, starting with the second section. The first bit was the most problematic, so may change in future incarnations. Thank you for your interest and comments.

i was just working on that remix of your other song and needed a break so I swung by MJ, only to find this. nicely done. I can see a little XTC in this as well, but not too much. great song.

Thanks, Michael. I may have another go at this one today, as I'm still not happy with Part One. Or I may muck about in the garden. Decisions, decisions.

I like the smoothness of the later part of this, with the instruments used all sitting well together and complementing each other. I like the first part too - nice tone to the guitars and solid riff underneath things. Vocals are well done and I like the arrangement. I enjoyed listening!

The vocals need some tidying, and as it's raining I'll be dealing with that this morning. Thanks for your comments, Philip.

Well, what a happy discovery! Here you are, wedged in, as it were. Lovely, lovely. Maybe a glitch or two, but hardly distracting from the overall goodness of this piece. Unique. Although I was reminded of We Have Heaven by Yes (which cannot be a bad thing in my humble book). I'm not registering a distinct division between the "first bit" and the "second part." Possibly the result of my incoherent way of making music, but I see (hear) this as being fully unified.

You spotted it
after I did! I love "Fragile" apart from "Cans and Brahms". I realised afterwards that part of this is stolen directly from "We Have Heaven". I've redone all the vocals on this, but I've kept a little bit of "Heaven", and tidied up the backing vocals. I resisted the urge to put some howler monkeys in there. Always a pleasure, Mr Kloo.

must kill
and all along it la la la, great contrast, like your use of crystal and the claps really stand out, some one said yes and I hear it also, nothing like some great art rock!

Yes, it's a very jolly call to murderous uprising! But if you've seen the show, you're with Sparty all the way. I have to do something to pass the time until the new season. Glad you enjoyed it, Mr Bandit.

Yeah Stick it to the man.....
as Dewy would have said in "The School of Rock"

Very interesting use of vocals at the beginning ,my ears seemed to be out of "focus" until they latched into what was going on ....enjoyed,sort of steel Hawaii flavoured (well at the end anyway) protest song ....that takes some doing

Thanks for giving it a listen, Jarv. I lost count of the individual tracks. I had to mix down all the music to two tracks before adding vocals as the Mac was running out of memory. The newer version is a bit simpler, but I think the better for it.
