A re-do of a Pink Floyd medley thing I posted a few months ago -- we got better at playing it and added a bit at the end. [more inside]
A proof of concept. This was our first complete take at this at rehearsal a couple weeks ago. My prog tribute project, The Yes Men. All live, recorded in the garage by John. [more inside]
Somewhat reminiscent of Sonic Youth's cover of the Carpenters' "Superstar", this song still seems to have a unique quality all of its own. When we recorded this Ummagma track, we didn't know about that cover but since then, this has been the feedback received and we also feel a similarity there too. What do you think? I'm also posting the lyrics here. [more inside]
Take Another Brick in the Wall parts 1, 2, and 3, jam 'em all into one quick bluegrass shitkicker, throw it into a major key, and you get this. [more inside]
Threw a one-off session together years ago, for the fun of it. A friend was in town for a couple of days, and we wanted to do something fun, but easy. We cut the music live, then overdubbed the vocals, & mixed it all in an afternoon. Mark Hallman mixed & played rhythm guitar, & Bradley Kopp played an awesome solo. I'm on bass, as usual, and singing the low harmony, and believe it or not, the "Ahhh, Ahhh" falsetto part. Can't do that anymore. The original song, of course, was written & recorded by Pink Floyd on A Saucerful Of Secrets, and again live on Ummagumma.
