drug-addled garage punk?
set out to give it a bit of a "garage punk band meets up for the first
time and starts playing without so much as practicing first" feel...
I suppose I should be somewhat ashamed of how well I seem to have
achieved my goal.
I'm damn proud of it, though. If you knew it as intimately as I
do, you'd know why. This song is old--in fact, the only
one older is "Soldiers in the Rain", and that's by a couple of days at
most. It's one of the first I ever recorded on the old 4-track
tape recorder (since deceased), and that was... a really different
version. I do still have it, actually.
The first drum you hear is another free MIDI downloaded drum loop,
only... "fixed". The second is a beat of my own composition that
didn't think would work with the song at all; but me, I try
things. I was going to add a third guitar near-ish the end with
the fewer words and all, but... didn't feel right. This is still
just a demo, after all. We'll see where it goes in the future.
