This is a really neat idea. I’d like to hear the vocals a little more up front, but hey I’m not the one with the head full of saltwater who just outran a Great White Shark :-). Yea yea I hear you… thanks a lot Miss Sitting in a Chair in Suburbia …

Anyway, nice work .. and vampires are all the rage now anyway … :-)

I’m off to hear a few more of your offerings surfer boy :-) …

Thanks man.
I was holed up in the UK Midlands during the cold winter of ‘86 and am now disturbed by a vivid flashback from a night club in Leeds where I was pursued by a blonde from the estate full of gin and tonic. Think I’ll take the locals here with bigger smiles anyday.!
So glad I didn’t wake up in this one’s belly though! Love your work esp the spoken words.

That be “wo-man” I presume. Thanks a bunch for the compliment :-). The UK Midlands is a scary place. I know from personal experience … I live with an Upper Midlander and a little boy who loves sharks. I’ll have to get some stories off ya.

Hey I just had this horrible realisation that you may think that I’m a woman, or maybe worse gay (not that there’s any thing wrong with that). I’m a 6ft4 100% shark wrestling hetro that looked like Shirley Temple until I woke up on my thirteenth birthday needing a shave and a bigger telescope to spy on the girl next door. Cheers mate. Back in Leeds I know I had a bit too much to drink - but I’m sure to this day she was female :-0/

Quite the opposite …just checking that you realize that I’m the woman ;-). You called me “man” and “mate”. If this gets any more complicated we’ll have to take this conversation off line ;-).

We are a bit slow here in the colonies. I always had this mental picture of David Essex (!) when seeing your avatar and name (scary eh?) My apologies, bet you don’t think I’m a fish though (as my avatar would indicate). Its the head full of saltwater.

I’ll confuse you further…. I’m an American living outside Philadelphia ;-) … and I didn’t think you were a fish, even though I have two singing fish in my basement I didn’t associate that attribute with our scaly friends generally.

Wasn’t life simple when you actually knew the people you spoke to in person and they were generally in the same room. Must go, I need some sleep for an early revenge sesh with Huey and his fishy friends.

I’m a man!! Or I think I am! I checked when it was really really cold!

This changing tempo and style mid song was quite the rage when I was doing session work in the 70’s. Most of it was unintentional though due to the large amounts of chemicals involved. Suprisingly a lot of it ended up on the records and the masses just thought it was meant to be that way!

Good to see yours is chemically free!

Yes RT, you have already described yourself as a “6ft4 gent with a handsome Western visage” with a bald spot. So I didn’t need this added extra for my mental picture of you. Lucky I’m not gay or I’d be right over buddy shining mirrors into your highrise through the haze. (my haze#%*%)

I’m a man too, although some people mistook me for a girl when I was a little lad. I am also 6ft4 when I wear high heels. O, and I like the song too…

Thanks Sub, Thought you were a fella but the high heels are a bit of a worry ;) We need some kind of CCM sex tester app that can run along quietly in the background. Or I may begin to address all fellow mixters with somthing like “hey you”.
I feel like a proper twit for not realising esseq was of the fairer sex, one of her Anchor remixes is the one that sticks in my head; then 1 plus 1 somehow equaled three. I’ll have to remix her sultry tones now in compensation (she’s a lawyer) :)
Cheers

Well at least you are a “proper twit” I hate the rough ones ;-). I have a little helper hint for you.. read profiles :-). I mean I knew you had kids and a girlfriend … You owe me nothing. I need to listen to more of your stuff. You possess an attribute I greatly admire.. a personality :-). My work here is strictly pro bono, I need someone to pay me to practice law …

My favorite part of the song: THe beginning. Remind me of my childhood.

I agree with essesq, about the vocals… but that’s a matter of taste…

Good job, as always Mr. S!

Thanks Wellman. I am now conducting a sex tester questionnaire (modeled on the East German athletics one during the 70’s) to determine the gender of our fellow mixters before intercourse (I mean the speaking variety). I take it by your tagname that you are a wellMAN???

I love that little funky bit—and I am talking about the music rather than ways of determining gender. I’ve had this pella on my somewhat done list for a while so its good to hear someones else s take on it—very nice.

Cheers, but thank Alex for the funky bit. I just had the luck leaving it at the right place.

The opening guitar riff sounded so relaxing. And when the vocals hit, I was hooked. After I listened to your song, I checked out the original samples you used. And I got another kick out of it when I reflect on how different samples can be mixed and turn out so different. Nice and different.

Thanks Ivan, it was either my “fight or flight” reflex from the LHS of my brain or the head full of saltwater of questionable stormwater clarity.

Aye aye, Scomber’s at it again. Real nice acoustic bed (simple yet effective melody). What’s with the fish? :-)

permalink   Scomber Tue, Dec 16, 2008 @ 3:02 PM
Thanks Scott.
The fish is a little “in” joke with my girlfriend - I won’t elaborate, but to explain that a “Scomber” is a small Herring like fish (AKA “the Southern Slimy Mackerel -Scomber Australis”) that tastes awful but is very feisty and the large pelagics in the surf chop them up in their thousands during the spring on the runout tide.
I bet I’ll be in real trouble when my girl reads this, she is known as “Pelecypoda” ;-o

I love how your acoustic guitar and my slide guitar parts blend. Is that you playing the acoustic guitar?

Thanks John, it once was me on the midi enabled guitar until I put it through the bitcrush wringer (not the actual guitar though) and corrected some offset in Melodyne.
I wish I could play like this live, but it slows my system too much, need more RAM (about 20GB thanks)
Cheers friend, I’m having a burl at your Millenium Falcon Christmas song….

Got so caught up reading the conversation that I almost forgot to listen, but when I went back and started again I really liked the ‘live’ feel of it.
