    I thought so. The main idea was around the Truth. I don't know who said it but the full quote is "trust those who seek the truth, not those who say they found it". I liked that a lot.

    zootman2u, you got me with the bass. Yep! Youve got the drums right at that sweet spot mix wise and the proximity on the vocals, however you processed them fit the overall theme of the song perfectly. Much respect on your technique. Be safe.

    Hey man! I absolutely love this track. In fact, I would really love to do a remaster of it and see if any more quality can be pushed from it, because it has a lot of potential. You will have full credit for the track, and no monetary gain will come from it.

    My best,

    Reply by Zootman

    Sure man, happy for that. Let me know if u need anything. I had been considering going back and doing a little tweaking of the arrangement but hasn't got around to it.

    Sorry I missed this earlier, a little late to the game on this one. Reminds me of Get Down Moses by Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros.

    "Fake it till you make it", always loved that saying.

    Great groove, cool guitars, liked the vocal delivery, cool track man!

    Thanks Wayne, I listened to the Joe Strummer track and understand your comment. Its a pretty cool song, I haven't heard much at all of his solo stuff. Cheers.

    BONEZONMARZ on Mon 26th Jul 2021 - 1 year ago

    This is fing sick man. That bass line sounds oh boy. Everything you added fits in so much, so glad I waited to hear the vocals. I agree with Michael Mayo this could be in a film. Keep up the great work!

    Curious to know what has changed with the acid drops if you can't get them no more?

    Reply by Zootman

    U can still get em but they're not the same as they used to be. Plus one time I ate too many and they made me sick

    That bassline reminded me a small bit of The Bogus Man" from Roxy Music but with more syncopated drums.. really good, I like the arrangement, the Rhodes, and the strummed guitar chords. well-liked, the vox was cool as well, well delivered.

    thanks heaps. i listened to that roxy music track. I knew they were pretty experimental in their first incarnation (Brian Eno was with them wasn't he?) but had never heard any of the early stuff. i liked that track, thanks.

    Great guitar work, great composition, with puzzling time signature. When the vocals started I was thinking of Steve Miller ... but of course this is unique. Very good work!!!

    Reply by Zootman

    haha good ears someone noticed or at least commented. yep, i was kind of aiming for a sort of polyrhythmic effect. it has no real time signature, or at least no set beginning or end to any 'bar'. or maybe no bars as such! I used two drum loops which i do quite a lot, then kind of slid one past the other until I ended up with something interesting. and the other bits and pieces kind of just got thrown in to wherever i thought they sounded good. cheers for the listen.

    Hi Chris,
    yippee aye eh. This is a great song to start the day. Well done. The bass, from megapaul, does his work well and your voice fits as always.
    Have a nice day! Enjoy the time, the tide comes everywhere at some point (maybe you heard about it what happened here in europe).

    Hi M, thanks for stopping by. Yeah the floods sounded really bad. Hope you're not affected as so many people seem to have been. Have a good day my friend.

    Love the voice.
    Well done

    Reply by Zootman

    Thanks mate. This mix is one I sent to landr for mastering. To be honest, when I compare my master with theirs they're pretty similar I think, apart from the volume increase. Which is heartening actually.

    i thought there should be a male voice when i listened before 1/3 of the song, and then it comes on. Good funky song, but i dont really like effects on the voice, but it just imho. keep it up!

    Great Track - love it - foot stomping head nodding grove, great sound, good vocal, lyrics even a hint of what sounds like a Hammond organ (btw I actually have a real one of those - seriously) Well done mate - REAL music!

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.

This song was supposed to be a Bedlam Kids track, but due to the low (none) interest of Pete on continuing that project, I'll upload the remaining tracks as instrumentals as soon as I can.

For now, here's a song written almost 7 months ago, it's called Simple Things.

Hope you enjoy it!!!
