On a sudden impulse, zallaz decided it was time to meet some of his iComp friends here in sunny Northern California. I recieved an email from him three days before his visit and agreed to put him up at my home for a night.

It was a great time. We spent hours and hours talking about and playing music as well.

This song was made in the moment, drawing it's inspiration from an article in a Northampton newspaper he brought along. I caught the live performance on my handy dandy zoom recorder and the rest as they say is history.

It was a great time and I'm so very happy to have had the experience of meeting Mr. Misan in person. He is a great guy and I am richer for knowing him better.

Sounds like you two characters had an interesting and happy time. Superb. And you kicked back and recorded a song too. Personally, I don't think it gets much more fun than that.

With all the technology today, it is easy to lose the "life" of a song. It's great that you guys put the spotlight back on that most important element and sounds like you had great fun too!

Holy hands across the water! This could be the the demo for a produced version with droning guitars, good strong Max Weinberg drums, etc., etc., it could be a serious powerpop romp. Nice ending!

smiley 24 hours travel, a detour to meet MissRedd in Toronto thrown in for good measure, and now AT LAST back in Northampton UK I get to hear what we did Matt, kinda lost for words!
(in a good way) a track I will always cherish, heaps of good vibrations from California trip!

smiley thank-you Matt

cobblersmark Listener Hey Granz and Zallaz

This is awesome and thanks very much.

I must introduce myself as "Ol Walter" I think. Apparantly it was my letter in "Your Say" in Northampton Chronicle & Echo that inspired your wonderful little tune. I feel honoured to have made it in the states now haha.

You could release it over here, it would be a great message to Northampton's council, who certainly need inspiring.

The local paper are running a story on the song next week, I would love to send you a copy of the publication if possible.

Thank you very much for making me smile a little more than normal today.

Ol Walter - Real name - Mark

Mark aka ol' Walter, this is ridiculous, but hey mate as your a Cobbler's fan like me smiley

Yeah well, Northampton Borough Council what a bunch of clowns we have going on there, thank goodness The Roadmender was saved from being closed that would have been criminal for a town this size with no decent music venue, grrr!!

This is a blast to hear from you Walter (Mark). We used your letter because the prose was so wonderful. We just did a Benefit for Mr. Kite thing with your letter. It fit immediately. Maybe we'll have to make a studio version of the song now... Thanks for commenting here!

You'd think maybe I could move a little faster, and try to show up for the festival while it's still in town, but alas it was not to be. For I lay asleep at the switch waiting for the train that never came down the tracks.

Oh wait a minute, wrong story. Well what the hell, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Sorry for being so late.

Sounds like just too much fun to me Matt. You guys were probably well into that 12 pack by the time this went down, but it sounds pretty darn good to me. This is the fun part of doing music, getting together and just lettin' her rip. Way cool dudes, even sound pretty good to me. Like the Zoom, did a good job of catching the action.

Thanks for sharing this on.
