Description
Some sketch I made for a steampunk-glam band called the Belleville Boilers. This was supposed to go with a cover of Sweet's Song, "Alexander Graham Bell" and a cover of Bowie's "Suffragette city" with the lyrics rewritten in victorian slang. Never got it off the ground, as I stopped making music.

Great rocker
Definitely got my head nodding here. I can see the connection with Sweet (what a great band they were) and Bowie. Really, really like the production on this, first rate pro sounding. A bit too short though.
Cheers
Len

too short
As I said, it's not finished. It sadly lacks a verse or two and some variety in the arrangements.

Thanks for listening.

100 Times Faster
I totally forgot about this cool tune of yours. The idea is really a good one and I sure wish you'd come out of retirement to further develop your steampunk industrial glam project.

I like this steady fast walking beat, the secret agent bassline, the guitars and your concept of HG Wells and T-Rex rocking the 1898 World Fair with their steam driven synthesizers.

forgotten about
I had forgotten about this as well, but I had it in my head these last few days; It's like a spirit asking to be decently buried, so I posted it to give it sepulture.

Great show at the 1898 world fair. Tesla was doing the lightshow.

Acceleration!
Hey I love this man! This took me right back to those tiny, dark punk clubs in the 80's where nobody knew how to dance, just spin and bounce off of each other. Supercollider punk!

this is
clever, unfnished or not.Beats the ass out of these retrobands that really have nothing on their pocket.
Why did you stop?

cjdaley said 3600 days ago (February 3rd, 2009)
why?
I ran out of steam, I guess. Actually, I could not find a decent vocal line for the verse.
