Recently I digitized the tape recordings from the early nineties.
So some tape hiss is audible.
The order of the tracks I kept unchanged.
A bonus track has been added.
The title refers to the kind of smooth fusion played at the background of a weekly lottery on Dutch television.2 C-you B-low (MP3, 2:49, 3.2 MB)
With a big wink to ZZ Top and maybe a bit Aerosmith.3 Frill (MP3, 2:49, 3.2 MB) 3:12
A difficult time measure (13/4) based on the staccato riff.
Like more songs from this collection I find the tempo a little bit too slow.
The wammy bar was at this time a favorite expression tool.
The song ends with a typical guitar duel.
While changing strings I recorded these sloppy guitar parts.
Imagine Tom Waits singing on this track wich will fit well.
With some stunts using the whammy bar. Tapping included.
Inspired by the music of John Scofield.
Before I owned a bass guitar I used an Boss Octaver with guitar. I tried to get the impression of a trio playing at once.
The bonus song Scocotuna is related to Scofield as well.
Fast! Two guitars and a drumkit.9 Grid off (MP3, 2:53, 3.3 MB)
This is a slow rock ballad.10 Smiles (MP3, 1:42, 2.0 MB)
This is a mix of two themes by Miles Davis. You're Under Arrest and Jean Pierre.
Trying out a wahwah footpedal and the slap bass style.
Inspired by country guitar style and diminished chords.
At the time I was working on a typeface called Sheriff.
While listening to the tapes of this project I recovered this loosely played song with a nearly live vibe.
Maybe not perfectly executed to be a final song.
