I'm always in a rush
to hustle these out. No doubt I'll tweak this a lot more, but this is close enough to done to set free. I see you've been working with Sisters. Lucky you!

Well done
Yeah a groove of your own my man. Great presentation. Bass lick real cool. Guitar sings chorus and you sing it nicely. Musical composition nice my friend. Like the street noise and VO.

Glad you liked it
There are still some wonky bits, but what the heck. The voiceover was an accidental recording as I made up the stupid lyrics. It ended up on one of the incarnations, and I decided to keep it. No idea why.

One of the many titles I considered was "Relentless". I kept the "-less" bit, and added lots of adjectives. I'm happy you enjoyed it.

punch
yeah a drink - but this has lots of stuff to drink in, including a nice punch that drives it. Great stuff

There are some drums
but it's mostly fingers snapping, plecs tapping and handclapping. It leaves space for all the other stuff that's going on. Thanks for listening.

Mutant Man in Aspic
After commenting on your previous two posts it occurred to me what your use of tapping techniques reminds me off. There is a very cool similarity to Tony Levin's work on Chapman Stick and his use of drumsticks on electric bass. Creates a very cool blend of melodic and percussive elements. The range of articulations is amazing. I also love the heavily distorted guitars here. They add some great dynamics. Great chorus! Great vocals too!

Levin - tastic
Garsh, I'm blushing. I'd love a go on a Stick, but they're horribly expensive and there are no cheap alternatives. I keep shilling for Matt of Guitar Lessons fame, but it's thanks to his on line tuition that I discovered I could make 80's Crim noises that were previously denied me by my own technical limitations. Thank you for your kind remarks.

Dig that basshook.
And nice tingling sounds :-)
Cool vocals!
Enjoyed!

Glad you dug it
My real bass won't make that nice slapping sound, so I had to use the GB one. Pretty well everything else is natural percussion and instruments, I'm pleased to say.

Vielen Dank
I've been learning about compression and mastering recently. Keep it clean in every track is my motto. That and "Try not to suck". Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Process
is interesting. Post the skeletal version, then a week later here comes the next version with an extra month of work layered in. I don't get it. Does posting it help to give you new ideas? Very refreshing piece of music. As always, I love your guitar work, and the addition of vocals completes it. I must attempt to copy you. But I plan on violating your Rules 1 & 2. If I didn't, I would never post anything.

My wife told her sister that she rarely sees me on the weekend. Garageband is largely to blame. Also my brain dwells on whatever the latest tune is and won't let me rest until I've done something with it. There was a whole section buzzing round in my head this morning. It's gone now, but I expect it'll be back to haunt me. Anyway, that is why I was able to post the updated version so quickly. If I could I'd be doing this 24/7, like Steve Wilson. Re your last comment: chortle chortle. Keep on not sucking, Mr K.

Thanks for stopping by
It makes a bit more sense (not a lot) if you're familiar with 80's King Crimson, particularly Adrian Belew's songs.

I dig the syncopated feel throughout, lots of great sound elements. Mix is very well done, lots of spread and depth. Is that a fretless I hear?...nice.

No frets on me
It's a muffled - sounding SX fretless, but I enjoy using it. Glad you enjoyed the tune, Mr 41.

Progressive
Accoustic is sensational. The music bed has a Yes/Gentle Giant mood to it. Vocals are spot on with a nice complimentary melody. Thuroughly enjoyed. Thanks for Sharing.

Yes, I love GG
I really admire Gentle Giant's interlocking rhythms and melodies, so I'm not surprised that their influence is in evidence. I'm pleased you liked my little tune.

No "sucking" zone
No worries about this "sucking", Graham. It is highly enjoyable. Title sounds like a Dr Who episode :-) Wonderfully original piece with subtle shades of Floyd just bobbing round the edges. This is a fine post. Thanks. Regards, Peter.

Look out! There are Zarbi!
I've been watching Dr Who since it started in the 60's, so there's another influence that's surfacing. I eagerly await the first "Hey, that sounds like George Formby" comment. Unlikely, I know, but it's not impossible. Thanks for listening and commenting.

Sits in a very cool groove. Love all the different guitar sounds. Vocal adds colour and interest. Much enjoyed!

Groovy
It's just another excuse to twiddle away on the Ovation like Fripp and Belew did in the 80's. Only they got over it! Middle age is all about doing things you wanted to do when you were 16. My next task: become Jack Kirby. Glad you enjoyed it, Mr 18.

Inscrutable mutations
I totally dig the groove on this song. It has this cool Gitbox, acoustic King Crimson, Crosby/Nash texturing. 21 Century Mutant Man. Really nice sound. The humor aspect, and the lo-fi feel like it was all recorded on a cassette tape deck (accentuated by the end), adds to the quirky nature. An inscrutable track, cool, entertaining, difficult to peg. Very nice. Thanks for sharing this.

No Larks
were harmed during the recording! I'm glad such a seasoned MacJammer like yourself enjoyed this. Five years ago when I first joined I had no real aims, musically. Now, I have a much clearer vision of what I want to do, and it's Crim - style rock with some humour thrown in. I also want a proper drum kit, but will content myself with what I have for the time being. Thanks for your interest.

Really happy you liked this. There is much wackier stuff on its way, but there aren't enough hours in the day to get them done. Cheers.

I worked hard on the dynamics of this one, so it should have more oomph than the first version. Thanks for your support, Sam.
