Actually, we were more of a basement band than a garage band, by which I mean that back in the day we had a little underground rehearsal/recording facility featuring a (for its era) state of the art Teac 4-track reel to reel machine, where we committed multiple offenses aginst the Muse of Music.
I won't bore you with any of the sordid details, but I just wanted to let the feline out of the sack, as it were, which is to say -- WE'RE BACK!!!
Yes, my old -- and I mean REALLY old -- chums and I are at it again. This time, not in a basement, but in an attic. Where, with the help of a lap-top computer, we now have a recording facility that affords us more tracks than the Beatles had available to them at the time they made Abbey Road. Our talent, however, remains as AWOL as ever.
In any case, here's an almost mixed version of "Fine Time," one of the first tracks from our newest
The song is sung by its composer, multi-instrumentalist and engineer Glenn Leeds; the bass is by Allan Weissman, the acoustic guitar by (Jai Guru) Dave Hawxwell, and all the electric guitar stuff is by some schmuck whose name rhymes with Sleeve Nimels. The other guys sing the harmonies on the choruses, BTW; they don't let me open my mouth near a microphone, for obvious reasons.
Despite all of this, please try to enjoy, won't you?
Also: I should add that the drum track is sampled from somewhere or other, and it sounds absolutely nothing at all like the work of our retired percussionist Mike "The Drummer" Sorrentino, who long ago informed us that "rhythm was an outmoded Western conception."
