2009 is the 150th Anniversary of Darwins "Origin Of Species" and the bicentenary of his birth. As a strange co-incidence, a few weeks ago there were a lot of posts in the forums here at iComp asking... "What is the meaning of..." or "What is the purpose of...".

I was thinking about all of this as I jammed out a little tune on my "Flying-V' Ukulele (yes, it's returned!) and "Uninvented" was the result...

As I worked at recording this, it struck me that the perfect collaborator for this song was Dylan, and luckily he agreed to work on this with me, bringing so much flavour to this track. A big thank you to Dylan and Toni both for adding to this track, it really has worked out how I wanted, if not better!

We hope you enjoy this slice of folk rock, also inspired by Eddie Vedder's "Into The Wild" soundtrack.

Ian: Ukulele, Acoustic Guitar, Vocals, Organ, Bass, Distorted Guitar, Mix, Production
Dylan: Acoustic Guitar, Lead Guitar, Steel Guitar, Banjo, All Percussion, Backing Vocals
Toni: Backing Vocals

Awesome send-up to the monkey man, Ian. A true folk compositional element to all of this including Dylan's additions and Toni's voice.

Love that Uke, and great supporting performances from all! You know Ian, I give "Me and the Rejects" a listen once a week. This has that same wonderful grounded feeling to it! Thanks for taking me out of the machinery once in a while! Must go chase a butterfly now.... smiley

Wonderful tune! I love the build and instrumentation, along with the voice combinations. Rich and alive. Art speaks volumes, too.

I was totally compelled to focus intently on this, initially because I couldn't imagine how distorted guitars would eventually fit into this, but then because it was to darn compelling in its own right. Seriously, this track is so beautiful and moving. You did a great job with your performances and the mix is just about perfect. When that distorted guitar eventually came in, it reminded me a little of U2 at that moment, not a bad thing, but interestingly evocative. Great work guys.
