Description : Ok! This is more of an up tempo Mod style track. Great bands like the Small faces, the Who, The Kinks is where the inspiration has been drawn from. I have added the toaster doing the off beat chant that swings the track back into the Ska genre even though the track is quite rocky.
A nine piece horn section sets the GSN trade mark sound. I have panned the guitar tracks so they don't get lost in the mix and added a change of feel through the middle solo section. Again all comments are most welcome, and I thank you in advance for taking the time to listen...

Cheers Slap...

    It's a good thing we don't have a limit of what we can favorite here.... cause I'd have it full really soon I think. Dude... seriously this stuff is KILLER. You're an amazing musician, and these tracks are just such a great example of it. It takes a lot of thought for someone like me to put together a track with just a simple beat... but these are so complex with the bass and the horns and the fast paced vocals... I am just in awe.

    You sir, rock :)

    hi theonetruebrew, I have another 3 tracks from the Global Ska Network to complete the 10 track album. Hopefully I will find the time to complete this task soon.
    thanks for your supportive words...

    This is great arrangement, i love the hook the vocals marry the track so nicely, and the horn selection is out of site.
    I love the breakdown, the rhythm section is delightful.
    You are the boss!
    Great job.

    Hi AnomalyJ, I'm glad your liking this work, i've been putting the time into these ska tracks. I will hopefully be turning those horns into loops once I've finished the album...

    Cheers Slap...

    Smashing Good Slap. I have been gone for awhile but it is nice to hear some of the looper legends again. Sound quality is pro as usual, your sax work is damn tasty as is the whole track. Very nice work.

    Nice! Sound quality is excellent! There is alot going on in this track, I love it. Sounds very top notch!I love that you play live instruments! not to many people do it and do it well. I'd have to say that you are one of them that do it and do it well. This is why you are a superstar here on Looperman.I will have to check out some more of your work!

Description : At the beginning i wanted to work on a dub sound and finally i slided towards a ska sound... may be because i listened recently one of my laurel aitken records? lol

Following the joefunktastic advice, i put "ska" for the genre :)

this is old school British Ska, Madness, The English Beat, The Selecters and my favorite The Specials, for the younger crowd these names might not mean a thing but their influence is all over the place, all loops no processing on the mix and the magic of SlapJohnson on harmonica, his loops are priceless to me thanks Slap.

Description : This is the final track from the first Global Ska Network album. I started this album in Feb thinking I could do all the tracks in time to finish the RPM challenge. I was wrong, but I didn't want to rush what I had started and compromise quality. This track is about the general can't be bothered culture we are facing. You know the kind of people I'm talking about! They want everything for nothing,and expect everything to be handed to them on a plate. They also would rather do dirty deeds to (lie,cheat ect) Than walk the right path.. Verse..How many more times,how many more lies spat at our faces.you wheel and deal,cheat and steal won't win the races.I turn my back,try to protect the love that's left,you want that too, the greed you show despises you.Chorus.You'll always learn the hard way, you have to have the last say,stop living day to day, the future's what you make it,get out there and take it.. 10 piece horn section, including a clarinet high up to add a sparkle. All instruments and vocals Slap, drums by Sonic foundry. Again I'm looking for constructive comments towards the arrangement and mix/production. This track has 24 tracks, so if you feel a tweak is needed please say. I thank you all in advance for taking the time to listen and review... Cheers Slap...

Description : A bit of organ, a selection of great acoustic guitar loops courtesy of the Looperman community. I couldn't find a bassline that suited the track so I skipped the bass.
