This beat out 37 tracks. Me n Rei doodling in the studio. Those drums are one mic, loads of distortion and one take. And Rei is a first class bass player.
For summer 2016. After much deliberation, a cover of last years track.
“The Sound of Tubes” nearly made it, and probably didn’t because I strove hard to maintain the integrity of the sound of the pre amp I used to record it. A reel to reel recorder from 1956. Yeh, not a great idea to get something past corporate, but hey, the pre amp just sounds too good. And Old Man Winter, my upright piano, sounds like a champ, too.
This also just found a home in Drive, She Said. My friend Alicia Angeles on the vocal mic. I did offer to do a ‘clean’ version of this, and also to give it a clean title, because, after all it is an Ashley Tisdale movie. I’ve written music for her before and she’s covered a couple of my tracks, and her fanbase are all minors. No dice, though. Well, maybe they’re going to use a bit of the track that has no cussing. If they can find two seconds that has no cussing in it, that is. Still, nice placement. Thanks Andy.
This just got another media buy.
I will never do another WFH (work for hire/buy out) on a commercial again. Or anything else for that matter. (Negotiable). This company has made full use of that wfh contract by running this consistently for FIVE years! In my spare time I play the stock market and I know how much these pharmas make. Shame on them. But, thanks for the AFM. And at least the music house couldn’t take half the publishing.
