Description
A loose rocker recorded yesterday...dealing with alienation, the credit crunch and loss of individualism in modern Britain. But you can dance to it...kind of!

Loose but good
Really interesting chords and timing. Not quite a 12 bar.

Another good set of lyrics as well.

Cheers

Good stuff
As always. I sense a definite pattern lately in song subject matter. It's almost like there's been some type of global economic meltdown or something.... Really great lyrics and some very interesting changes. Enjoyed it.

Hehe
...I like to think that I kinda predicted the credit crunch in my song Vanity Fair last year. Did 'they' listen? No..they didn't and now we are all in a right pickle!
Cheers for listening in!

Credit crunch blues
... mind you, didnt see any sign of it in Selfridges at Xmas!

Lovely production, lovely vox ... reminds me a little of The The at their best.

Great sound Steve!
You have great ears (as well as voice of course) Steve. You manage to get some wonderful Strat sounds and then you drop them into a really good sounding track. I hear a little Richard Thompson in here.
Nice one!
