A follow up to Space Forest. All about a futuristic crazy mixed-up kid...to a cyberpunk tune.

The boy needs help. "Bot-tormentors", you can do without...

Lyrics
So you arranged to meet me here at the “Zulu Time”

The uplink said that the “Spectrum” would be fine.

I think your measured hour angle is all outta whack.

Get in my transporter, we’ll have to head back…

‘Cos you’re a Mean Sun
You’re a Mean Sun.
If you behaved better,
You wouldn’t be on the run,
You’re a Mean, Mean Sun

Your c-band is short; you’re going thru a phase;

And maybe it’s time you hung about at my place?

Cooling your jets is not the end o’ world

Just kick back and let your mind unfurl…



You see that guy who lives in Barycentre?

He gave in to a bot-tormentor.

Now he living in an old tin can,

He’s cleaning up the glasses at the “Astrobahn”

You wanna end up like that?



You’re a Mean Mean Sun, well you’re a strange one,
Mean, Mean Sun.
If you behaved better
You wouldn’t be on the run
You’re a, a Mean, Mean Sun
You’re a Mean, Mean Sun...ah!

Shades of Warm Jets in the
opening vocals. Excellent music arrangement concept - driving - with idiosyncrasies. Actually - driving with idiosyncrasies is something I used to do in high school till I kissed that oak tree. Cool lyrics - complete package. Dl'd.

Aww, cheers, Bud!
I woke uo this morning with the beginnings of that story in my head following a conversation in a dream about the old joke -Wwhy are there no pubs on the moon?

Because there's no atmosphere!

Amazing where the inspiration comes from, eh?!

DL'd is the best! Thank you.

Thanks for tuning in!
That's two comments on lyrics - totally made up nonsense using real space jargon from a NASA website.

Heh heh!

I love that you love it!

I dunno
... if you influence Bob or vice versa... bit of both, i guess. Love the electro feel to this, nice production, but your vocals shine here Jim - the'mean sun' refrain is ace ... best vox you've put down.

Ta much, Steve!
Yeah, Bob's influence is all here, he kinda encouraged this sort of caper. I'm likin' the cyberpunk vibe - it's different to anything I would buy, but it's all good putting it together.

Cheers for commenting. Appreciated.

Here, I hope you used your nose to type and not that sore hand of yours! And I'll bet it's not your beer hand that's playing up, LOL!

great song
i don't know what I like more, that driving bass sound, the vocals, the little synth parts, or that smoking drum part. Really like the whole vibe of this: Eno meets Tones on Tail.

Thank you for your continued suport, M.

I like
this nice driving beat and love the electronic sounds and instruments. Your vocal gives it a nice light feel even through that urgency and I love that zany space-age feel. It's a bit 'Lost in Space' Family Robinson, but the cartoon version. I love how you got the inspiration too LOL, cheers M

Throbbing sun head
really a strong pulsar wave of energy in the synths bass & drums.

Interesting solar flair lyrics. Just don't fly to close to the mean sun. I hear he tends to spit and not return kid's frisbees.

Very cool tune

Vic,
You are a fan of Bob/5/E/A, n'est pas? This is wholly down to him and a dream I had.

All credit to the robo-meister... thanks for tuning in and typing, much appriciated!

Ego - I am so grateful for your comment - means an awful lot to me.

Thank you. Encouragement says there's a future........

It conjours up proper spacey images I think - Bladerunner- good comparison!

Thanks,

Space bass
The lyrics are extremely good, wherever you got them from! Nothing wrong with a bit of 'made up nonsense' if it sounds convincing. Groovy sounds to go with it. Nice one.

The Infinites said 4097 days ago (September 30th, 2007)
Glad you listened, Rebsie
Yeah, lyrics - they come from all over the place. I took some interesting stuff from NASA to help with this and I think it works. I like the images. Reminds me of when Bowie was doing space-age/Ziggy stuff.

Only lyrically - not vocally! Or musically!

Cheers,

Jim

Great
driving beats/bass - love the space invader sounds too. Interesting lyrics and terrific vocals. d/loaded. Thanks.
Cheers

The Infinites said 4097 days ago (September 30th, 2007)
Well, Len,
Those sounds are from using the on-screen keyboard and a bit of drumming the fingers - not actually playing! Again, like the words, I just thought about what living in some futuristic world might be like.

It seems to have made a difference actually putting some thought into how the story/sounds might go, for a change. Mostly I just bash out random stuff, but I think I'll try and put more effort in, in future! Seems to have worked.

Thanks for listening/commenting, Len,

...They want their lyrics back!

What a cool tune Jimmy boy! Man, you are really hot on vocals! This is what I've been telling you since I first heard BIG! You have such a cool voice and I'm just ecstatic the hear you using is with such vigor and confidence. The cadence of this song is really driving and rocking.

Your source for lyrical inspiration proves your brilliance. Your friends are questionable, but your songs are marveloid!

See ya on the Astrobahn-

Hey, Bob!
Glad you've stopped by - you know that your space age robotic futuristic influence is stamped all over this (as craftily perceived by Steve).

I really enjoyed putting this together - it was in my head to do this kinda thing after you commented on Space Forest, so I thought - I like them comments, I'm gonna DO THAT AGAIN!!!

He, he, let's do that - see you in the "Zulu Time", "Spectrum" or the "Astrobahn".....or maybe "5 9th", mmmm?

Glad you like, you know it means a lot.

Under The Influence
You give me way too much credit for your fine work. We all have space age robotic futuristic influences - too many for me to mention. And that guy Steve....

Maybe this summer we'll all hang out with the Murphys (again) at the 5 Ninth in the MPD. They'd right songs about that for generations, if I were king of the world.

Your pal,

Bob
