Wow. From another time man.
The first song I had ever written and recorded with a band
No, that's not me singing, thankfully. That's another alcoholic. Pretty
rough, four chords, this is the first time we'd actually played the
song through together, and the only surviving recording that I know of.
What's scarier about this whole thing is how this song was recorded.
was drunk off his has, and had broke my strat a few months earlier by
either spilling bongwater or beer on it, to this day, the mystery
remains unsolved, although the guitar has been repaired and rebuilt,
it's bigger, stronger, faster, and has a humbucker.
But since the strat was out of commission, I didn't have another
electric guitar. But wait? you say that's an electric guitar on that
track you just heard?
yup. I bought an old Kent Armstrong humbucker and slapped it in the
hole of my old Harmony acoustic
Althought this guitar hadn't been restored at the time. I was too busy
doing drugs to restore it, and I had just traded a hat for it a few
Daniel actually bought a nice microphone, it might have been a nady or
something like that, so we actually plugged in into my old HP PC and
brought out windows sound recorder.
The catch was the music in the room was so damned loud we couldn't hear
He went out and got a 30 ft cord, ran into the living room and was
singing along into the mic in there, and recording the music from about
twenty feet way.
Wild shit. Damned crackheads we were.
Steve (the guy playing drums) might end up having other versions with
the actual guitar solo and developed structure lying around somewhere.
( We recorded a few other tracks, but those are also
lost, probably for the good.Collapse )
