We're a punk based band but we all love our sixties music...especially those classy old instrumental bands such as the Ventures, Tornadoes, Shadows and so forth (second band I was in as a 20 year old did instrumental covers of the old classics like Telstar, Walk Don't Run, Apache, etc. I fell in love with this stuff right back then). So we decided it might be kind of cool for us to do an instrumental...plus it struck the rhythm section as something our singer can't destroy with his Doberman eating a cheesegrater voice :laugh:
We'll record it if it goes down reasonably well at gigs (first play this coming Sunday)...and when recording it we'll build it up in noise a lot more with multiple guitar tracks and maybe a bit of keys thrown in here or there.
Yoshida Bros. "Yoshida Brothers"
"Psychedelic Cambodia" (Compilation of pre-Pol Pot Cambodian rock)
and from the used record shop:
Oumou Sangare "Oumou"(I was jazzed to find this since her import stuff gets a little pricey)
Ali Farka Toure "Talking Timbuktu" (Had this CD long ago and lost it - I've been meaning to replace it for ages.)
"The 2 Tone Collection-A Checkered Past" (Already had a bunch of the tracks on here but it was cheap and had a few things missing from my collection)
Plus a Tito Puente disk I bought on a whim
Every once in a while I go off-script and listen to some of the lesser played stuff in my iTunes collection. Too bad most of Danzig's stuff is punk, as if they had done more stuff like this I would have bought it.
