A few months ago I released Duke's Return as an instrumental and an homage to Genesis' "Duke" album and Misters Banks, Collins and Rutherford. It has always been one of my favorite progressive rock albums.

The original instrumental was conceived as an end-note to the album, so to speak or a session out-take; I wanted to do a song that sounded as if it came from Genesis circa that period (1980-1983). Maybe with a little edgier feel... It was warmly greeted here. Some of the criticisms, was that the song seemed to cry out for vocals (and to some it was more reminiscent of Abacab-era Genesis). I concurred. That's where Baboon came in. Master lyricist and vocalist, and iComp superstar (soon to be world superstar!), he came to my rescue and delivered a performance worthy of the aforementioned albums. To say I am blown away by his performance is an understatement.

Originally, I wanted a keyboard solo to totally capture the Tony Banks feel, and I thought that Baboon, had he still had a keyboard would have been THE man for it. Have you heard his The Way Things Work? This guy is super-talented folks, not only can he write and sing great songs, he can play several instruments too!!!

But that didn't work out. No keyboard.

Since music and ideas, are ever evolving, the song went into a slightly different direction. I asked my good friend Ray La Veau to add some killer guitar. He said "sure" and boy did he deliver! It's still very Genesis-ey though, but more of a combination of 70's Genesis and 80's Genesis.

Credits:
Lyrics and vocals: Baboon.
Lead Guitar: Ray La Veau.
Song arranged, composed, and produced (whatever this means) by La Veau, Severino and Dwyer.

I want to thank some of fellow iCompers for their support with this one:
Bob6stringer: you are great man. We will do something together!
Ignoramus: your ears and opinions are fantastic- thank you!
LeonaLeva: Lenny, you're a gentleman and a star! Thanks for your thoughts.

The artwork is also an homage to the original Duke album and illustrator Lionel Moechlin and his "Albert" character.

As usual your comments are welcomed. Enjoy!

I haven't heard enough of this.

I think Mr Collins would love to cover this ..

I hear your keyboard dreams, But I'm satisfied with that guitar. Artneuro used to be a real freak for Duke .. I preferred Selling England by the Pound.

I love this. I haven't hear enough of this

Julian, this is great! my own "Duke" album has been played so many times that you can only hear scratches now, and you captured that sound perfectly (even some "selling England...", I'd say.
But there's more than that: this is a great song, Bab's vocals are awesome (as usual, i might add), arrangement is perfect, production is pro. wow.
Instant fav.

My first memories of Genesis (or Phil Collins for that matter) is an MTV video with puppets of Ronald Reagan and Michael Gorbachev. I think Mr. Spock was in it too. Anyway, don't know much about the Genesis legacy, but this song captures that late 80s progressive rock feel very nicely. I love the attitude of the vocals, and that guitar solo was on the money.

Awesome song, guys smiley

Great accent Baboon (spent some time in the East End???). I agree, you should be famous any day now (and multi talented is correct). Julian, this is a powerful collab. I know it takes a lot of work to pull it together and make it right. It sounds like you guys were in the same room and really worked on this. When I hear Ray's guitar. I just wish I had started playing much earlier (like 3 years old). Not a Genesis fan but I love this.

Outstanding musically from both Julian and Ray.
When Baboon gets his vocal chords around a concept there is never room for a single critique.

If I could dig a rock opera out of my pocket I'd pay to give it to you three to pull off.

OK, I still think this sounds more like an outtake from Abacab than from Duke, but it definitely has a great mix of 80s Genesis-sy elements -- and yet the spoken-word parts sound like voices from earlier era Genesis. Definitely very cool!

Man, what a great appreciation I have for Julian's ear and arranging and mixing skills...and I'm overwhelmed by the kind regards on this page. About three months (maybe four) ago, I downloaded JD's original track. After a night at the pub, I fired up the mobile studio right in the parking lot of said pub. With a "few" pints under my belt, these vocals (plus an extra session between then and now) were the result. Julian has a knack for assembling fine collab teams and Ray came in when the time was right to finish this track. Stars are for Ray and JD!

Wow.
What an EPIC piece of work. Great performances all round. Baboon really sounds like Phil and Ray's guitar playing beats Rutherford's playing hands down.
My only quibble is the drum sound. It's really close, but it's not quite exactly *that* sound which was the backbone of the 80s Genesis sound, but having said that, this is a magnificent effort.

I listened to it with my eyes closed and heard Genesis from all the era's. There's a touch of Dodo, a hint of Fountain of Salamacis and even a hint of Dance on a Volcano.

An absolutely fabulous effort and a glowing tribute that I'm sure Collins, Banks and Rutherford would be proud of.

Simply excellent, I'm favouriting it for sure.

Well, it's been a good week for this song...a good run! I appreciate all the comments and listens.

DRP (I am one of the vocalists and I am the other one, too)
For one short spoken section I took my voice down about 5 or 6 steps with pitch shift to affect a lower more authoriatarian voice...or at least to make it sound like another character.

Here are the lyrics (late posting, heh):

I find it most peculiar, mama, that you're looking down on me?! I been out'a work these wot? One, two years...maybe three? But it's not for a lack of trying and wearing out my feet. The streets are hard, there ain't no work, especially out on the street.

Ow, tell me the truth, did you lie when you told me upon the roof? Birds in suit, I don't mind, but I think you misunderstood. They tell me the Duke is on the line and he's feeling misunderstood. Tin and tooth and buzzard eyes and a harsh word for me and you!

In the mayor's pocket next to the lint, a five-poind coin and a 20-quid. A full day's docket, touring the mint, fleecing the sheep and keeping things hid...Na-na-nah, na-na-nah...Those are fine tools for the job...bully!

When your ship comes in you sink or swim, lots of these blokes would rob you blind, sir, not me, when it's dark outside. Commence to thieving times. Stick with me, I'll get yours and you'll get mine! When the fur starts to fly, you go left and I'll go right. Don't forget the brass knuckles; you go low and I'll go high. We get wot they owes us and a few quid more; some rainy day baubbles, some shiny pieces from the company store.

Under cover of night, the lock got picked, the crooks came in and the stuff got knicked. It's nobody's fault but the economy. What'a you expect us to do? We got mouths to feed.
Back in the mayor's pocket something is missing and he's quite distraught about the whole thing. There's a fifty-"p" and a Euro where his precious used to be, and it's not bloody likely he lost it accidentally.

The Queen's 80th Birthday Set, Sterling Silver, shiny 5-pound Crowns. The Royal Mint's been sacked! And the hoods have not been found. Disappearing into the night, without a trace, without a sound.

Without iComps, this dream of making something that people all over the world would appreciate, would not have been possible. And course, this would never have been possible without the contributions of Ray and Baboon, and of course, Ignoramus, Geechi3, LeonaLeva and Bob6stringer.

Baboon does a fantastic job on this ..great lyrics and vocals his accent is really very good, not too cockney either.

Thanks for the listens everyone. We really appreciate it.
Dave, I thought long and hard about the guitar mix, and decided that I should keep it faithful to the bands sound. They weren't going loud with the solos at that point, and so I decided on that. But I can see why you and danman and ananga would like it louder. It is a GREAT solo. it is tempting to fix it.

Great work. I don't know how I missed this one the first time around, but it's great. Ray steals the show on the guitar again, amazing work!
I like how it's kind of talking instead of totally singing, and the way it pans between the speakers gives it an eerie little presence. Quality from start to finish!

I would have missed this had it not been for Yohmar's remix of some of Julian's stuff. Awesome!!! I am joining the fan club NOW!

This is "Tight" "Ambient Tight" and the mix is interesting and it rocks. Love the vocals that suits the song well and the drums are nice and the keys and journey this song embarks on keep it interesting. Nice one.
