Secret Agent Man

January 25, 2008 2:02 PM

A quick and dirty cover of the Johnny Rivers classic for a lazy Friday afternoon.

My band used to perform this in high school, and I threw together a quick recording of it while I was semi-employed after college in 2001-2002. It's fairly faithful to the way we played it, which was a load of fun. Sorry for the lousy mix. (There's a good chance that these drums were tracked in Impulse Tracker. I am that oldskool.)

While nothing will touch The Plugz's "Hombre Secreto," this is fun.

What's being pitch-shifted?

Nice one. Very pogo-able.

Thanks, Karlos, hadn't heard that one. "Todo lo que hace es sabroso." Genius.

And it's the "bass" that's a pitch-shifted guitar; before I picked up a Chinese knock-off bass, that's how I did it.

Solos were tasty and not overdone, and nice pick squeals too. Clean tasty rock.

This is a lot of fun, nice job.

Damn! I agree with Karlos on The Plugz, but this one's at the top of the heap somewhere. Thanks for sharing it.
