12-Monkeys Dub

Uploaded .

Okay…it’s still a sloppy mess…but that’s what you get when you have earthquakes, a new-born baby, a nuclear disaster, broken bones in your hand and a whole-lotta “uuuuuuuuuuurgh!” to get out of your system. Somedays, you just gotta play in the mud (so to speak). And what you usually get is mud…fun freakin’ mud.

This is actually a rough re-recording of a glorious jam I did back in LA in the day. The original recording had loads of cool samples from the movie “12 Monkeys” (thus the title) but is unfortunately long lost due to technological format changes (see: DAT). Hopefully, I will be able to get ahold of a DVD and add those samples…because they really worked with this riff. The keyboard riffs aren’t really on the “dub” tip…and weren’t a part of the original…but were inspired by The Who’s “Eminence Front.” …because I had just seen an awesome documentary on The Who…however…THIS keyboard riff (as opposed to Townsend’s riff) is all live…no sequencer…tough to pull-off with a busted hand, let me tell you! Whew…enjoy!

This has a bit of a Gorillaz feel to it. I like it.
