    I had an interesting chat with Tom (also known as SLuiCe) today. Some of the topics were:

    -guitars
    -soundcards
    -disco
    -the FBI
    -Britney Spears (she should be killed)
    -squirrels, and the best mic for recording them
    -frogs, and the best way to record them without scaring them
    -the FBI
    -disco
    -J Lo (she should be killed)
    -disco
    -frogs (they rock)
    -squirrels (they rock even harder)
    -disco

    Keyword seemed to be DISCO. Hence, this little search of me for an advanced kind of disco.

    I take full responsibility for this ditty. Tom had nothing to do with it. It probably has nothing to do with disco either LOL

    Why? I was getting sick of guitars, and of my voice. During the creation of the song I felt less hate towards the guitar, and even added some. I didn't add vocals.

    Song: Now What?

    It's all happening dude. We're gonna bring disco back with a whole new face.

    Just not yours.


    You know, I'm listening to this and it just occurred to me that you're a great writer/composer/player to begin with; so it only makes sense that you could make something that is actually compositionally interesting out of electronica. There is definitely a musical intelligence at work in this. I might have spent more time in nightclubs if the dance music was like this.

    Great sounds here and really cool melodies! I'm always impressed with your sense of melody.With all the bullshit I've been dealing with trying to find a guitar sound, you (and Sam) may have inspired me to jump on that keyboard again. Glad you finally got a day off and got to make some music.

    Ped,

    Very nice stuff!

    Very little here to complain about other then no vocals.

    Reminds me a lot of Kraftwerk in many ways but not really disco in the traditional sense.

    I like it!

    Cheers!

    *all of a sudden dear old Fprod South starts crying*

    Thanks guys. Hey, it just occurred to me I totally ripped off the beat in a way: Music by Madonna. A clever dj can easily mix it with a simple crossfade. Now not only the FBI is watching me, but the RIAA is watching too LOL

    I think I'm gonna try some more of this. I noticed it's clearing the big frustrated mess in my head at the moment.

    I was waiting for the squirrels to come in but it never happened!

    I like this one quite a bit. The descending melodies are way cool. Nice work!

    As always I listened and typed this before reading the other posts...

    It's a bit disjointed, but I really enjoy some of the NIN meets Depeche Mode effects, makes for a tasteful and original techno thing.

    If it does have anything to do with Disco, it's pretty close to the devil's disco, cause I just aint hearing much upbeat, cocaine driven, clap happiness going on here .

    BTW, that's a compliment.

    this is no disco...no without a guy singing like a woman j/k This is really cool. The intro is got some nice 60's psycholdelic feeling, but then the 80's space techno takes over!! I agree with Pinky, this tune does have a little NIN vibe to it, which is totally awsome!

    You could make a short for MTV, spotlight at your feet, big huge 6-string red sparkly bass ... elton john platform shoes, rainbow socks ... purple polyester shirt hanging open a bit ... big round glasses ... huge blond fro !

    Just you, a big AMP, a turn-table ... up in the DJ box ... playing ... and spinning ...

    I think you'd make a fortune ... and the chicks ... gawddddd ... the chicks !

    Ped, I'm with Tom's response, all the way. I could hear a screaming guitar solo somewhere in this. Very nice. And vocals.
