    I've had this tune kickin around for over a year & could never get any vocal inspiration happening, so I took some outtakes of the guys from a jam we recorded recently and did some dubbing.

    Do they blend at all or just sound stupid?

    I think it's cool. Your grooves are always dirty and mean. I like it.

    I would have maybe had a few vocals snippets totally dry, to stand out from the others that all have a delay on them. Maybe find that one coolest vocal hook that can almost be a "chorus" and come back to that once in a while. I'm just rambling...but I dig this.

    Pretty spacey - the way you've cut and spliced the talking is cool. It has it's good moments when the vocals really blend with the beat of the music. When it's choppy, it seems a little out of focus. Not bad overall...

    Guys thanks for your thoughts on this. I've changed tack on this now - the retrofitting doesn't really work. I think I'll put the vocal snippets over a drum groove with a few sparse guitars. Cheers

    Could do with more kick to help discern the driving beat. You always have a cool sound with good element of electronic thrown. It works well. Obviously, this won't be the rock ballad that you'll use for a single but this could be the "Private Investigation" on your album is you were Dire Straits.

    It seems like there is just too much going on. I love the sounds you have captured (always do), but I am just not feeling the connection between the music and the voices...and I am generally pretty receptive to unusual/experimental arrangements. I like your new plan though...place these voices over a more repetitive groove-oriented thing...

    bigbubba, heatmiser...thanks for the comments. I've redone it & replaced that clip with a new one, bigger drums, more space. Probably better this way

    I'm accessing the original link above so I assume this is the latest mix...

    Drums really sound good on the mix... Seems like a bunch more vocal/drum/music syncopation on this clip compared to before...which I prefer. The cut-offs are a little choppy at the end of some of the clips, but they are infrequent. Yes, I like this version a whole lot more... You always have some really cool stuff BH....

    really original stuff....!
    I like the idea with the voices, like they said above, maybe a little less delay here and there. But definitely interesting sound.
