i’m likin’ this track, brother. it’s got a modern-aussie-zappa thing goin’ on that’s irresistable. great samples & no minors were harmed during the production. a big win-win.

Thanks Panu! As a self confessed disciple of Frank I’m chuffed by the comparison but not worthy!

Scomber, stop that rediculous self-depreciating of your own voice. I’ve seen your comments on this subject elsewhere on this site. You have an excellent voice! The energy in this song is so good, like the energy of another Aussie act, Hunters & Collectors in the early days of their career. Especially the song “Talking to a stranger” comes to mind. I was a big fan of H & C in those days, I’ve seen them live three times. Unfortunately too drunk to remember anything at all (all three times) and now it’s too late…I was in my late teens…what an upbringing. This one is a very good compensation for the lack of those memories. Thanks! Thumbs up!

Thanks Per! I once saw Hunters & Collectors at my local pub supported by a fresh faced unknown Sydney nth beaches band called INXS. I can’t remember much about that night either!

This is great, Scombers. Crazy and moody and feels as if it might explode all over you at any moment. Makes me want to chew the carpet. Will go and vote for you when I’ve brushed my teeth and removed my heated rollers.

Thanks Ciggi! Please explain the carpet ref! Then again it might frighten the kiddies LOL :-/ S x

Haven’t you ever wanted to chew the carpet when ‘things’ get on top of you? Obscure? Good.

Thanks Alex, your bt is great and a pleasure to croon against. In the future you may as well just upload the instrumental track to save me asking! Cheers dude

I was starting to miss your (almost) daily uploads. This only shows how easily one gets addicted to a good thing. Great track. I am off to the songfight website to vote for you…done.

Thanks Sub, you seem to be taking up the challenge now I’m in semi retirement. You’ve pumped out some mighty fine work in recent weeks.
Keep going my fav lowlander!

Somber, Scomber, Scomber…so it’s true then, you’re actually on the lam?

So happy to see you. Loved listening. I too caught some Zappa-isms in the tone of this mix…hmmm…(By the way, I did vote for you the other day, but I did not have time to give your track a real listen until now.)

Thanks S, Yes unfortunately I have sold my soul to some faceless record company dude who smokes Cuban’s when he’s not playing racquet ball or lines of powder.
I must admit Zappa used the word “bovine” more than once. I’ve been aching to use it in a song for ages.
Thanks for the kind words.

Pretty cool song with sweet lyrics. It all works pretty good together….. I just voted for it on the other site.

For some reason the song reminded of William Gibson’s Neuromancer and Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash. Maybe the lyrical “I’ve been framed” inferences to the novels’ subplots and also the techno-pop feel of the song. My preference would be to run the vocals through a “radio effect”. I’m not criticising your vocals dude!!! Just making a suggestion to align the vocals more to the whole electronic ambiance.
permalink   ScOmBer Sun, May 31, 2009 @ 12:48 AM
Thanks Ivan, funny you say this because I originally side chained a lofi radio effect on the vox but it created some EQ issues when I crunched the final mixdown to Mp3 at 128-160. Alex’s BT’s are always pretty top heavy with plenty of hats and cymbals and my natural voice peaks around the 800’s so its always a balancing act.
Thanks for the electro comparisons though!
Cheers mate
