Description : Returning to a slightly more minimalistic aesthetic with this song, as compared to my most recent uploads. This one includes a portion of a loop from Durius, formerly known as WaterminD, and it is found here https://www.looperman.com/loops/detail/52855/132-ska-guitar-1-c-sharp-by-durius-free-132bpm-ska-electric-guitar-loop ... Thanks to this looperman user for the awesome loops!! I used a few hardware items in this one, including microkorg, yamaha ys-200, and zoom RT-123. Also recorded four verses of vocals. I'm going to call this "hardcore psychedelic electro-ska" for the moment. Meant to be played loudly. Thanks for listening! EDIT - After reading everyone's comments, I have changed the genre selection to "hardcore," as that is probably the most appropriate for this song.

    LOL...Man this Z Crazy!! Very different from the norm...but who determines what norm Z? Well done.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey buddy, thank you for listening and commenting on this! I'm happy that it did not conform to the norm for your ears. Regarding your question - I believe that the main contributors to what is considered normal are the large corporations who contribute to political endeavors such as legislation and elections. These corporations have effectively locked down government activities as well as the legal recourse that citizens have related to these activities. They reinforce the normalcy of this through advertisement and financial contributions. They also make gifts of their products to professionals and government agencies. It is up to the citizens to stand up against this injustice, by forcing government accountability, not spending our money in support of these corporations, and educating our peers about the damage being done to the fabric of society. No one else will do it for us. Artists, including musicians, have a specific responsibility to take this upon themselves. Thank you for listening!

    Yes! I think your description of "hardcore psychedelic electro-ska" is spot on. It is definitely ska - or at least a development of it. Or maybe a mutation? Do you live near a nuclear reactor? I love this song, crazy!!!

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Ha ha, I've been waiting for this to come up in the line of comments to reply to, mainly because of your question of the nuclear reactor. There is, in fact, a nuclear power plant in our nearby area... however, I think far more impact on my development as a human and a musician was influenced by the radiation I was exposed to as a child. When I was young, I spent many years in Alaska. Not only was the Chernobyl incident a fairly recent occurrence (Russia is 51 miles from Alaska at the Bering Straight, which used to be a land bridge), but my father used to bring me to an abandoned military facility for recreation (which was apparently used during the "cold war"). I would dig through the torn apart remains of their electronic equipment, and my childhood mind was in love with the place. Not too many years ago, my father, who still lives in Alaska, informed me that the area had been designated as a Federal superfund site. This was apparently done because of high radiation levels present on the site. Regardless of the fact, it still remains one of my fondest memories of childhood, and a place that I would like to return to some day. My mutations seem to be mostly psychocellular in form, and I doubt that this is the only cause. I have also had an array of dangerous head injuries throughout my entire life. More recently, both consensual and forced chemical exposure have deepened the impact. Strange things are afoot in the world called Earth. Thank you for listening and reacting!

    I wouldn't have expected any less from you! The drums/percussion were wicked! Pretty crazy ride through this one. As much as I liked the intensity of the drums I also liked the middle part when they broke down and simplified. Great lyrics and performed to match the music.

    I think simplifying your life, taking just what we essentially need and stop being so materialistic is a great message. I've managed to not need a car or need cable tv, two of the biggest expenses adults have outside a living space. Living within your means is not promoted by corporate america and unfortunately most people fall victim, Not me.

    Cheers man!

    Hey Wayne! So good to hear from you! It is extremely rare that I come across someone who also does not drive or have cable TV, and it makes me happy that I'm not a complete freak! Living around here, that is usually how it feels. Even without those things, without children, and without a couch, I am still paying the price for living beyond my means for many years. Life has so much more to offer! Thank you for listening to this and leaving your assessment! There was a decent amount of electronic percussion improv in the track, and I think that makes a good subtle difference. I really appreciate it man!

    Ha ha, I'm glad you understood the "ska" sort of reference in this song. I used to listen to some madness records a lot back in the day. I like that they have a sense of humor. Really appreciate you listening and leaving a comment! Have a good day!

    Love the creative style you have in your music and this is not an exception. The fastpaced technodrums with all the glitches and your vocals make this track so vivid.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thanks for the supportive comment! Hardcore is something which I've always wanted to excel at, but never quite got it right... I think I'm slowly getting into it now, with my odd twist on the genre. "Vivid" is a nice word to be applied, and I thank you for that. I appreciate it!

    Ahah man, you really don't expect where this track goes, your genre definition is exactly right.
    Great creativity man, this song is rythm heavy, I like it.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Thank you Darknives for the cool comment! I was trying quite a few new techniques this time around, and I think it turned out well considering that. Was very much influenced by spontaneous thought and performance. The vocals were done without the direct alcohol influence, so I needed to do far less editing. I'm happy that you enjoyed listening! Thanks again!

    This is madness, like silverman said... this is a mental breakdown, I love it!!! haha

    Hardcore - psychedelic - electro - ska is a pretty good way to describe it, although I think I would probably have a bad trip if I took some psychedelics and listened to this, no offence ;p

    That accordian type sound at 3:04 is pretty cool, works really well with the track!

    Very high energy, nice mix too! I do love some spivkurl madness after a few whisky's :)



    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey friend... I suppose it is madness, like you say. See, I'm a big proponent of the psychedelic experience, but my compatriots suggest the outdoor experience, and of late, I think that mine would be a bad trip that way. Don't want to come down in prison after clubbing parks and forestry peeps. The accordion sounding thing you speak of is provided by the microkorg, which was manipulated live on recording to take the part of different sorts of instruments throughout the song. I actually love to listen to my music with a buzz, and it could only serve to insert my messages more smoothly. This is however the first vocal track I've done without a direct alcohol influence for quite some time. My songs, and everything else in life recently, has been myself summoning all of the powers I can to positively influence my community and the world. Everything must change, and then we can live free. Thank you for your supportive influence!

    I can't associate this with Ska at all Spiv.
    Frantic track.
    Very well put together.
    This is a nervous breakdown!
    This is madness!
    This is assylum music and I'm loving it .....

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Interesting comment. Like I've mentioned in other replies - I feel that if I were to replace the synths with a brass ensemble, and play the guitar (and possibly bass) myself, then it would sound very much in the ska style. Ska is such a variable genre though, so I have switched it to hardcore. Life, where I am at, is a nervous breakdown. I've never been to prison or an asylum, and I've never killed any one, so I suppose I can be proud... but for how long? Thank you for listening!

    Hey mate

    What the hell is SKA, must been hiding under a rock or something, never heard of the genre lol...

    This a has a very much a hardcore drive and feel to me, 160bpm? or just sounds fast like in hardcore, really digging the minimalistic approach to this track my friend, allowing your vocals to stand out more then your other tracks, very catchy drive to this one for sure mate...love it...FAV...Peace n respect my friend...mosaic...

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey buddy! Ha ha, well, as far as I define it, ska is influenced by both reggae and punk rock. Hardcore is what I changed this to, even though if I replaced the synths with brass, and played the guitar myself, then it would probably be mistaken for real ska... heh. I believe that the actual tempo was 186 BPM on this one, definitely upper hardcore range. I am allowing my voice to be heard, mostly out of necessity while protesting the poisoning of our city and it's population. This is the first vocal track I have done in quite some time with the aid of alcohol. Good for me, right? Thank you for listening and the favorite!!

    Ska, My ass...This is Digital Hardcore. The Genre Atari Teenage Riot created in the nineties and still perform today.
    Great job on this BTW. ATR is awesome and >I think you would like their approach on the world if you are unfamiliar.
    Ciao for now.

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Ha ha, yep the genre has changed to hardcore. As I mentioned to someone else, the way I figure it, if I were to replace the synths with brass and play the guitar myself, it would probably make believable ska... maybe I am wrong though. What is the difference between "digital hardcore" and simple "hardcore?" I have listened to ATR a good amount over the years, and I do enjoy their stuff quite a bit. Thank you for giving this a listen, and leaving you comment!

    Electro Ska..cool! Man, in a way this track reminds me of a confluence of planets, initially it's quite busy and there's a faux randomness to the electronic grooves and rhythm, it's not chaos at all but there's possibly an imminent sensory overload on the horizon and then it really focuses with the lyrics almost to a microscopic level , it's like all the planets line up suddenly, you couldn't get the same impact without the preceding passages..powerful stuff!..I sometimes wonder if you wear a lab coat when your creating music (for all the right reasons of course) I myself have a stethoscope that I occasionally use for tracking down buzzes on my stringed instruments (true! lol)...cool work mate! cheers Dave :)

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey friend, thank you for the words! There have been many odd planetary alignments recently, and celestial events in general... such as the full moon coinciding with the summer solstice this year... very potent. I'm happy that you referred to "faux" randomness, as the rhythms were very specified in most cases... but do sound a bit frantic. I really wanted people to hear the words this time, for them to draw people in. It's sad really, I always regret not stealing a lab coat from my optical tech job that fired me so many years ago... I could really use that now. I've started using an oscilloscope sometimes in the studio, since I have two... and I've finally grabbed a multimeter for both studios. Stethoscope could be quite useful! Thank you for the very cool review!

    Classic Spivkurl, truly your original interpretation on Ska, that's why I love what you do. I still think you are an Alien from a friendly world. :) Peace

    Reply by Spivkurl

    Hey BigPete, it's really good to hear from you! I have since changed this to the hardcore genre, as there did not seem to much agreement with my idea of the genre... not that it matters much! I'm thinking that if I played the guitar myself (with some variation of course) and replaced the synths with brass sounds, then people would be thinking ska... oh well. I have to wonder if I am the alien from a friendly world, or if most of Earth's population are aliens trying to make this more like their inhospitable planet. I'll probably never find out. I'm happy that you enjoyed listening! Very cool to get your comment on this song! Thanks!

Description : Got a new track here, which seems to fit with the hardcore aesthetic, what with the tempo, hard kicks, and driving bass. We'll see what others' will hear though. This song has been about 11 months in the making, and finally came together with the addition of some psycholotrystic field recordings. No evil spirits were harmed during the recording of this song. Features my circuit bent Tyco Hotkeyz, a track of modular synth, and some helpful controllerism. This is meant to be on dirty lofi side for the most part, so don't come complaining to me...!
