brings back memories :-)
Thank you so much Justin, for your kind comment! w;-)
Justin, The drum on STEPPIN' ON SOME TOES is just poking the bass drum and the snare drum keys on my midi keyboard. Then I quantize it to the 1/16, because I'm lousy at playing on the beat, add some reverb to it and then pull the volume down until it sounds like it's way back there somewhere.
You did a little Marlin Manson like cover.
You got the touch.
You & gene both.
Always loved this song. The strange buzz is perhaps gonzo attempting to amply the doctor.
How much fun it must be to recreate this old chestnut. What a time that was!
This is groovy.
Such a cool texture.
Old Hank! just a head! LOVE IT!!!!!
Nice rendition of an awesome song!
cool version man!
Dig this a lot - again very earthy, organic quality in what you do.
Nice cover with a sense of your own thing. Nice earth in this Justin.
Have y'all checked out the video?
Great version mate. Dig the guitar.
exploding the jet stream.
Nice one and thanks for your comment.
Nice work out! Top notch performance and mix-down. Digging that strong bass.
Rock Lobster -- those are badass stand-up bass runs!
Cool vocals, and you know your way around the neck of a six string. Enjoyed your picking technique. Groovy, for sure!
For some reason I find myself agreeing 100% with what Gene Eric Mann said about this song, as if he were me!
Angie Fights Crime is how I ended up here. WOW! I love this mix down. Great job! Rock on! Delicious! Gripping!
I know I keep saying this, but... you have a sweet voice. That's a cool story. But I think the first time I heard a song written about an instrument was Stephen L. Krell singing about one of his vintage electric. Yours however was far less noisy! ;) Good job, Colleen, and that's some nice poetry!
Holly! Wow! That's some mighty fine compositioning! I'm impressed. Very tasty, very delightful, and quite enchanting. Great job! It's great you were able to migrate here from ez so I didn't have to miss this gorgeous number!
I really, truly dig this rift! Choice lead chomps! I good with the lyrics too -- Rock on!
I have to agree with my alter-ego about the Doors thing, but I must add that the bass line is especially, wickedly, tasty! Alex did a great job on vocals and you did a mind-blowing excellent job of mixing down and mastering those vocal tracks.
Leaving me wondering too, after hearing this "Silly cover of a silly song," what kind of tasty, mind-blowing damage you could do with silly ol' "Rock Lobster" by the B-52s (although I prefer sometimes the version by Peter Griffin).
Gorgeous, fantastic, and amazing. Your shredding so blows me away, always leaving me wonder, "How does he do it?!" Delicious!
You might also dig what Big Time Operator [who is not me] did to my "niaR" track -- what you might call a remix, but it's actually something more -- he used the song like an instrument, playing it on a track of the mix down of his own creation:
Gene Eric Mann (generic man) and I, Justin Otter Guy (just another guy) are the same person -- I'm also on AloneTone as Merry Bear and, with my soul-mate, as Nightmoth. Anyway, thank you for listening to and kindly commenting on so many of my G.E.M. songs. Regarding "niaR" (Rain spelled backwards), here is "another way" of listening to the same track, a way that your 8 year old might better understand and actually appreciate:
"Burglar Man" was recorded in 1959 at Knott's Berry Farm in Orange County, California. This one, "The Mechanic's Song," was recorded in the early '70s at New Recording Studio in Indianapolis. The rest of the recordings were done in 2000 in the boxcar at the Hobo-owned park in Britt, Iowa.

Y'all are so professional, so together. What the Hell are you doing here on AloneTone? You should be topping the Billboard charts!
Oh hell yeah!
