12 Dollars (the Quern Mix)



 Genre: Experimental

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a new mix of a work in progress. Here I used G'band drum loops and a few other new touches. A Quern is a stone used to grind grain. I like the sound of the word Quern.

The voice on this is the inspiration. Whilst driving through southern CA around 1977 on a far-away from home college-hunting trip, my brother and his 2 friends left a Craig tape recorder going in the car. What they recorded was not only themselves laughing and carrying-on but also the AM radio. This is an edit of a live, off-the -radio broadcast of "Dr. Dallas Turner, yahweh's messenger of God" ( "if you'll send me 12 dollars, that's one for the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, and the nine ghosts of the Holy Spirit you can claim the impossible from Yahwey!")set to a little sound bed. One of the laughs in the background is of a now deceased friend. He, and his laugh, are missed. Enjoy!

I am a fan of your work. I am humbled by your kind comments. Plus, I am glad someone finally commented on this work! The sync-ups of voice and music were both planned and accidental. The tempo was important I felt as well in terms of the overall cadence of DR. Dallas's delivery.
But very cool and observant of you to notice such things. Dr. Dallas is a trip isn't he? The kind of evangelical that Jesus would come down and zap into oblivion (Robert Smigel did a great SNL cartoon showing Jesus doing this to various people. Very funny). Nothing against Jesus here mind you ... just those who, like Dr. Dallas, are so obviously using religion for monetary gain. Be well!
