Recorded in 2005. The keyboard sound in the second half is a backwards electric piano processed through a triggered filter (kind of like a Mutron III). Muted the vocals cos I'm not too pleased with the lyrics or performance.

Has kind of a demo quality at the beginning, but develops nicely!

…yes, the night the dead are raised to dance their macabre dance - not a piece for guitar, I think.
Nicely done.

@sluggthesickpuppy: i’d play it on guitars if it lent itself to being played on guitar. if you want to tackle it, be my guest.

I’m a fan of spaceship noises and haunted planetscapes.

I love phase shifters and long, sarcastic walks on the beach.

I’m also half of the electromechanical ambient duo Oil On Canvas and was previously a member of King Ink in the early 90s.

These tunes generally represent my more pop/accessible side.
