Not quite surf, but not really quite anything else either. I guess it might be what would have happened if PIL made a blues/surf tune in the 80's.

It's recorded on 4 track. Percussion is Casio. Everything else was improvised - 1 take per track.

A surf blues tune.... CRAZY!

I totally dig it. It is joyful, twisted jam. Lots of mood and sense of place. It's got a surreal Louisianna Bayou drudge that is totally unique.

Good going Vman!

I've just been watching "Lost" on DVD and then come to listen to this... for a second I forgot that this was you and not the DVD soundtrack. This has the atmosphere of that somehow.

Man I love this! Woody is going to go nuts for this song...

Thanks Ponk,

Still haven't seen Lost. A friend just got the first season. Can't wait to watch it. I need to get the harmonica out again soon. So many ideas, so little time!

I love the cool ambience VMan. Sounds like it needs some story told over the top of it Tom Waits style.

Thanks for the kind words guys! Maybe instead of a Tom Waits style story it needs a lilichi style story! (nudge, nudge) smiley smiley

Thanks Wood!

I must say, I'm a bit surprised. I had been hesitant to even upload this track initially. I didn't think it was one of my stronger works. Kind of an afterthought improvosation roughly thrown together on a 4-Track Cassette. Not really the best production quality. And that drum track is about as cheesy as you can get. This was just a thought I wanted to get down - with every intention of someday recording it with better tracks.

I guess I'm wondering, should I re-make this in GB before lilichi does her thing? Or is it really that good just the way it is? Maybe I'm too close to it.

Sounds like the soundtrack for some futuristic spy movie (Ultrachill + Our Man Flint + Cool Hand Luke theme). You're right about the cheesy drums, but everything else is so dreamy that they just sort of fade out for me, and don't matter any more. Yeah, this is mind-bending. I am glad you are making music here. KD

In case you have been living in a box an haven't heard it yet, lilichi written lyrics and added vocals to this song now. The new version is called Disposable. Listen to it. You will be amazed!

Ahhh, the swirling vapor...

Love it. The harmonica absolutely makes this tune. I am moving up to click the download button and I will be grinning and tapping the tips of my fingers together while the progress bar inches along.
Beautifully twisted!

Sssssssmokin track, Vap. Here's my Tom Waits voice-over which you're free to use:

"I was in this bar in Tijuana. There was a donkey on stage. That's all I'll say about that. I woke up in a dirty jail cell, head burning like a match on a cockroach, contact lenses glued to my eyes. They let me go in the desert. I couldn't see. I wandered for days. I stumbled upon a donkey. He gave me a ride into town. I can't remember if I said thank you."

"I found myself in a crowd, surrounded by people selling greasy food and worthless tin trinkets. I had a dollar in my pocket, I was hungry, but I saw a bull ring across the street. I went inside and embraced the spectacle like a porcupine. My stomach growled and I thought it was the bull. It was then I realized my shirt was part of my skin. A sunburn so red it distracted the bull from the matador. People told me to leave...so I did."

"I couldn't find a mirror, and maybe it was just as well. I walked to the U.S. border and said, 'Hey, man. I'm a citizen.' But, they told me to go to hell. So I traded my watch for a ride on a lettuce truck, buried myself beneath the lush cool green leaves. I never liked salad, but somehow that changed. The hum of the refridgeration unit lulled me to sleep. I woke up in Pittsburgh with frost on my moustache. That's a true story..."

Surf - Blues - Soul ... it's got it all! The cheezy drums kind of make it. Enjoyed. Now to listen to Disposable.

Sits in there real pretty ... like a group of fellas leaning back on a couple of 44 gallon drums with a harp, spoons and a couple of flagons of sherry on a balmy night at around 3am. One of the drums has a fire in it, the others are being hit with rolled up newspapers. People leaving the clubs stop and are tempted to put money in the fellas hats ... but they're wearing their hats and the passing people sense that anyway the music and the musos should be there at that time of the night... belong there. They're part of the fabric of the night.
regards
