Must start by complimenting on your new hair.

The music?
Your new project reminds me more and more of Bowie’s 70’s concept albums. Not neccesarily stylewise but conceptwise. This time, though, WillenWillem’s great guitars (working with them myself at the moment) really echoes Rebel Rebel era Bowie and his concept album Diamond Dogs. Then there’s the fact that your voice sometimes so much reminds me of Bowie around that era.
I’ll stop refering to other artists from now on. Just had to do it once more.
I think this is just fabulous.

Thanks Per, the hairy avatar was temporary. Willem certainly has the sound happening. On reflection, I think Ive put to much reverb on the vocals and too much hairgrowth formula on my head. Your thoughts? I was trying to make it a bit dreamy, confined and distant but may have gone too far.

Agree with St. Paul on the Bowie sound-alike, which is a heck of a compliment if you ask me (ok, so nobody’s asking… heh). Actually I detect a little bit of Alice Cooper too, for the last chorus part of the track. Now that I’ve heard the track, here’s my verdict: . Your lyrics and vocals fit WillemWillem’s instrumental so nicely. I don’t have the courage to try singing a rock pell, so I’m going to let my guitar front it instead. p.s. downloading this track for keeps.

My thoughts? I just think your hairdresser is a genius.

Thanks Panu, the fro was a bit to scary for the children and I kept on losing things in it. I have shaved back down now but the hair removal cream has made my skin turn funny colours.

Very nice job on the remix. I like what you did with the vocals on this. Fits like a glove :)

A fine new tune and so most probably a fine new chapter to be read. I like what I have read so far. I am going to re-read it all when it is completed.

Not too sure about the hair though…

Hair now defoliated. Cheers Sub!

Wow, sounds a bit like Neil Young & the Crazy Horses, delicious…

Thanks Donnie, glad you liked it, though I feel unworthy to be compared to such icons. Cheers mate

A well crafted rocker! I like your transitions from WW’s structure to your own; and back again.

Thanks FB, I only cut up WW’s cool sound into verses and chorus sections, then shuffled the cards a bit. Cheers Mate. You are the rocker on the site dude

A scomber power-ballad. Cool! This is awesome! The acoustic cutaway reminds me of something I heard Queen do a few times.
permalink   Scomber Mon, Mar 1, 2010 @ 2:08 AM
Thanks Bob. I’m glad you liked the cutaway interlude. Should be more of it. Big points to WW’s great sound.

Very good track, very good words. But are you actually turning into an alien? The girls in your fan club favour your romantic avatar. Silly cows. xxxx

I am an alien. From the planet Dork. Haven’t you commented on my puffy sleeves and elastic waist before?
Thanks Miss Cig

A pure time travel machine :) Cool voice. Great song!
permalink   Scomber Mon, Mar 1, 2010 @ 2:11 AM
Thanks M. Got a bit carried away on the reverb settings when I set the time machine back to 1972 though. lol

Thanks to you for being the first to remix my track! :-)
It’s pretty interesting to compare the different remixes. I think you are most “rocker”! Having listened to your remix at least ten times now, it is totally engraved in my mind and I really like it. Above all, your lyrics are quite compelling. Could also be written by Dream Theater … :D
I personally think, that you could reduce the reverb a bit?!
permalink   Scomber Mon, Mar 1, 2010 @ 2:17 AM
Thanks Willem for posting such a great backing track for others to play around with. I’m glad you liked it, I tried to give it some lyrics/melody/hook as memorable as the fine guitar riff that keeps your song so alive. Re the reverb, its strange - I have a few new toys im just getting used to , and it sounds way to hollow on big monitors, but just right through my ipod earbuds.
Mastering is getting to be a real bitch when there is such a wide variety of listening environments/equipment out there.
Thanks again, cant wait to see what else you upload.
