was Billy The Kid Strikes Back the most fun song you've ever made?
Actually it probably is up there with the funnest.
It was me and my mate Daz ["Billy The Kid" on loads of 1990s hacker IRC channels] in my living room with endless pots of tea, loads of herb, Daz's five-string bass and all my cranky old synths.
I already had the drums and TB 303 line going and he came round to play some bass. Then we spent a few hours putting different synths in front of him and recording the first thing that came out.
There is a Doepfer A-100 modular, TB303, Korg Monopoly, Kurzweil K2000, Roland MKS-70, and a Marlin Synthetone.
Also sampled is a documentary about alligators and a man describing a sponge cake.
I think the last section after the darbuka breakdown sounds like 80's Van Halen and it makes me laugh every time I hear it.
I hope your tour begins without a hitch. I'm trying to decide what kind of a gift to give y'all when you come to my city....do you like to read?Ott responded on 01/29/2013 Next question
How would you recommend connoisseurs of music who know nothing of its theory or practice go about understanding and beginning to create music themselves? Any tips, starting points, or first songs? thxOtt responded on 02/08/2013
