Requiem for the Living

The new album is more or less finished, so I thought I'd offer you guys another sneak peek. A shoot-from-the-hip rock song - Let's drink to the things that died too soon.

Noise at the end:

- Found vocal/synth recording left on the second-hand tape I bought - it turned out to be wound in reverse so the music is in reverse as well;
- Resonant guitar noise from when the drummer was warming up;
- After that, tape rewinding, and toy piano my friend was absent-mindedly playing while on the phone with me, and which I discreetly recorded using a cell phone.

This is really the lead-in to the next track on the album, but I left it in here anyway.

Actually, come to think of it, it's the lead-in to this track.

That sure starts with a bang.

It is really neat that my five bucks has turned into an ass-kicking source of great music.

Fuck you iTunes!

Yea, I love how it starts off all on fire like that!

Thanks. It might behoove you to know that we recorded a version that started off slow first - I'm glad the retake worked out. :)

Nice. And the ending rocks.

God. Fucking. Damn. This is so good that a little bit of wee came out.

Shit, forgot I was listening to HiFi. Was trying to figure out how my laptop started picking up such an awesome radio station. Very professional, well done, and a great listen.

Hey, this just popped up on my iTunes. I really liked it, and the way it devolved at the ending. I usually get annoyed by newer punkish music, but this seemed to have a kernel of the old punk soul generating heat inside it. Thanks!
