Description : As kids, my brothers and I used to watch the WWF professional wrestling on Saturday mornings and one of the "characters" was a big dude who dressed as a US marine and had the moniker of Sgt. Slaughter. He used a submission hold called the Cobra Clutch. I recently watched the Ford vs Ferrari movie and was inspired by the great music in it. That's what this one is all about. Cool movie.

Great track - fun lyric and very fun, but cool and classy arrangement

Btw
IF you dont already know it check out The Mountain Goats 2015 album beat the champ - all inspired by wrestling
In my view their entire catalogue is worth checking out - and Ive seen the band live 3 times too (great)

Glad you liked it! The arrangement's a bit weird but it works.

I'll check the Goats out for sure, sounds like a fun listen already! Thanks!

As always very well wrote Wayne, very funny, laughing at this, so much character, just like wrestling, I have friends who are both pro cage fighters, UFC and Bellator, love the fight game all styles, tough boys step in the ring. And yep I watched wrestling as a kid, the English stuff though absolutely hilarious, big daddy, giant haystacks, kendo nagasackie, Mick macmanass. These where household names in the 70s uk,started Saturday early evening after the football results. I can't believe forty fifty years later their names just roll of my tongue, thanks for the memory jog :)))

It's pretty funny the things you remember from being young, wrestling was part of my youth. I grew out of it when the real world of working for a living kicked in. Hulk Hogan, Bruno Samartino, Bob Backlin.... memories! lol

Pista poderosa amigo Wayne, me gusta como suena, hasta los coros están en su punto. Tiene sensación de tocar en vivo, lo que me encanta. Gran final desvaneciéndose con la voz. Que tengas una buena noche compañero. Paz y salud.

A fun track you created here, Wayne! I used to watch wrestling all the time, strangely enough, I don't remember a Sgt. Slaughter, but yet I remember the signature move. This track is making me want to get back into now. Great track. Thanks for the nostalgia trip.

Thanks, I grew out of it as I became a young adult but one of my brothers used to go to the live events all the time, real fanatical about it.

Here is a quick clip of Sgt. Slaughter demonstrating the Cobra Clutch in a radio studio on one of the announcers. Maybe this will help you remember him.

I remember the Undertaker and his ghoulish manager, lol.

Steve Austin was in a different federation so I knew of him but didn't get to see him too often.

Thanks!

Wayne, this is a fun track. It is well made, sounds good and the lyrics are just hilarious. You say you wrote them yourself?

You know, as kids, my brother and I also used to watch WWF wrestling on the weekends. If I remember correctly it was after the morning cartoons. Wow what a throwback. =D

Thanks Ella!

The lyrics are pretty funny, well, generally speaking wrestling was a hoot. It was wrestling for an hour, maybe 2 if we were lucky then it was the WLVI Channel 56(out of Boston) Creature Double feature which was 2 B rated horror films.

These were the good old days when you spent more time adjusting the antenna's to get better reception than watching the program.

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 : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).

Description : In the 1700's the Comanche Indians became known as the Lords of the Southern Plains. The Comanche ruled a region that stretched across New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado and deep into the Texas Panhandle. The most feared and savage warriors of all the tribes of the old West.
Many believe their spirits still ride the night wind here.
