    A great song which is funny but also a bit sad. It's too easy to "chunk out" - message recieved..

    I love this song.... It's witty and honest, this is also reflected in the stripped back instruments (what more was needed? nothing! It's perfect). Great lyrics and playing all round...

    Cheers Slap...

    Thank you Slap
    What started as a joke seems to be our biggest hit on Looperman. This was just done in one evening. With other songs we spent a lot of time on the sound and the mix. Sometimes the best way is to keep it easy.

    Thanks Blair,
    It started as a joke but now it is the best reviewed track we have uploaded. I've met musicians who say blues is too easy for me. I don't agree, it's hard to compose a song with fresh idea's and it's a great feeling if it works.

    Hi Meestege,
    Well, I liked the song here too. It kinda fits me as I am too fat myself. As you get older, it seems to come on easier and hard to get rid of. I liked the Harmonica part in the song in particular. I can't seem to find any loop disk with Harmonica on them.
    I suppose a person could make some money selling one if they made one up and offered it from one of the bigger companies. You'd need about 600-800+ different short .wav files with different parts of riffs, fast and slow endings, and in different keys and tempo's...etc. Takes a lot of time and work!
    Anyways, the above is off the subject...but just a thought since I don't hear the instrument anywhere else. Good job on the song.

    Thanks Randall,
    To us it's so normal my cousin plays that bluesharp. I realize that you want this on your recordings too. I never looked for that kind of loops. But if you have a recorded song that's in the standard tuning (A=440) then my cousin will play it for you, I'm sure.

    Funny enough we've wrote the lyrics in a split second. Getting fat is really a problem. When we have a funeral we say the family is getting smaller but every time we need more space to watch, ha, ha, ha.

    From the age of twelth we are real bluesmen. In the sixties black blues came to Europe and we never lost it. Last year we left "The Ramshackle Bluesband". We played for 8 years with this band so you can say we have experience. Although to play blues is one thing, to compose with a orignal touch is difficult. We like other music too but every time blues is coming back.

Description : My friend, fellow musician, and all around great guy Mark Ratcliffe approached me about doing a blues tune and I jumped at the chance to work with Mark again. He's got a great voice for the blues....I once described it as a mixture of gin, cigarette smoke, and ministry. He sings the blues like he's been there and that is the way it should be done.

This tune sounds like a live recording....like we were there with Muddy Waters and the boys and I love the feel of this one. Mark Ratcliffe - vocals, lyrics, lead guitar, drums, bass, harmonica. Barry Morgan - rhythm guitars, organ, horns. No animals or cops were harmed in the production of this. A huge thanks to Mark for providing the talent (he also mixed and mastered it). I hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.

Description : Of all the classic Monster tales the Wolfman is definitely one of the saddest. Cursed, and destined to live as both man and monster. During the day he sits alone with his guitar, a prisoner of lonely existence, crying his heart out through his music. Then at night, the beast emerges, and in the dark under a full moon, he cry's as he rips the hearts out of his victims! Such is the life of a cursed bluesman!

Description : My thoughts for a Halloween track this year was to work up some foreboding Drone music with a little Delta Blues slide guitar mixed in. My inspiration being the classic story of Robert Johnson and his infamous deal with the Devil.

In Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1930, Robert Johnson supposedly made a deal with the devil at the crossroads where US highway 49 crosses US highway 61. Johnson had been playing down in Yazoo City and was on his way back up to Helena. He had hitched a ride that dropped him off next to the levee. It was a cool October night and a full moon glowed in the dark sky. He continued walking up the highway, guitar in his hand. As he approached the crossroads he was thinking about his friend Son House preaching to him about giving up his guitar playing. He really wasn't a good player and most people would joke and mock him when he was on stage. He hated it and was thinking he would give anything to be as good, no, better than his friend Son House. It was at that moment he noticed a figure in black standing there at the crossroads. As he approached him, a deep voice issued "Let me see that guitar boy"! He then took his guitar from him, tuned it and upon returning it asked if he would trade his soul to become a famous Bluesman. He agreed and the rest is history. Johnson's ability was seemingly transformed overnight to the amazement of everyone who knew him and he went on to become a Mississippi Blues legend. However, his fame was short lived. A mere eight years later the Devil returned to make good on the deal.

So this Halloween, be careful what you wish for, especially at the crossroads.

Description : This is a tune dedicated to my friend, Nancy, who followed me to the clubs I played at for years, and is still following me with my studio work. Why do I dedicate this to her? Onnacounta cause she's soooooo naughty! She never liked violins, but loved her sax! Here's to you, Nancy. Anyway, this is a little blues track with some nice guitar and sex...oh, sorry, I mean sax.

Enjoy and download away.

Description : Cosmic Eastern chillout atmospheric shuffle blues with loads of bluesy/Eastern electric guitar playing and warm sub bass (the same synth patch I've used in about 20 tracks). No drum loops and just two programmed acoustic kits - probably the simplest drum setup I've ever used. One day I hope to make a track containing only one drum kit. Also: a few female vocal samples (including a heavily timestretched one), one section of bass guitar, a few sample-based string instruments, a few notes of organ and two synth pad instruments. So, quite a minimal instrument lineup for me. It goes uptempo around 4:31 into a grooving, stomping bit of shuffle blues and I wonder if I should have brought this section back at the end for a triumphant finale. But I'm trying hard these days not to make things too long and this is already a decent length. Also contains some darker, Eastern sections but nothing too dark. Have a listen and leave me some interesting feedback - the more detail, the better.

Description : Been away for a while. I am doing something I usually don't do with this one. Here is a blues track I put together in a day. It features everything being done by me, with improvised solos for each instrument. This was done using Fl Studio 12 and my Korg M50 keyboard. I plan on adding lyrics to it down the road and having everything much cleaner. Anyhow, enjoy!
