My creativity needed an enema and what plopped out was this 4 minute pseudo-intellectual thing. I suppose I’m trying to give this life some meaning. Just loops with me barking and shouting in the background. Good to be back on iComp (I’ve been here over 9 years!).

p.s. Apologies to my current collaborators. I really needed to ‘unlock’ my brain and get the music flowing again.

p.p.s. Dedicated to Andy Osborne.

9 years, eh! So glad you were one of the first I met here John, I probably wouldn't have been here as long if you hadn't encouraged me to be existential myself!
Rock on bro!

Cool track. I love how the tracks are all so different, spacey and futuristic, yet pretty down to earth. Great song, well played and well produced. Excellent hook, I like this a lot.

dig that groove immensely!
this is a wonderfully strong sing - you do a great job of doubling your vocal an octave apart.
"facticity" - there ya go! good open spaces between sections.
nifty effect on that guitar in right channel. you always work a treat on my ears, John.
nice to hear you again,
Sis

Ah, I prefer see the absurdity of life as an inspiration for humor and the creation of art, rather than as a source for sadness. Thanks for sharing this thoughtful tune.

I have been gone for SO long!!! wonderful to hear your "voice" again...I love "looking for meaning in my life " ending in the realization that life is empty and meaningless!!! great concept, like a 4 minute treatise on existentialism!!

To say " it´s nice" is not adequate to judge this ..maybe to dance would be appropriate..I liked the words the mix ..its cool ..its really cool.

Nice classic but fresh retro sounds here. Loops can be a real challenge to do well.
Bravo!

Oh, I DIG this Mr. Kane! This is the best thing I've heard for some time on icomps (not that there ain't a lot of good stuff on here). Really cool tune and the sentiment is cool too.

Really-well done.

Really cool, and very trippy! Cook lyrics and vocal - for some reason it made me think of Linkin Park.

Great song and production! As others have mentioned earlier there's a soundscape of Depeche Mode, but also vibes from the Blue Öyster Cult song (Don't fear) the reaper. I especially like the cool rhythm and the vocals.
