A Song a Week 51: The Bad Felt – Danger’s No Stranger

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

This might be my favorite Bad Felt song. Either this or Capital I. I was influenced by the original on the bass line, and I think that adds a whole other layer to it. The original was new wave, but i think the bass gives it a more reggae feel on our version. And as […]

A Song a Week 50: The Nemesis – Two to the Chest, One to the Head

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Here’s the other song I’ve written so far for the tow knee chavez album after next. This is my attempt at Minor Threat style hardcore. The lyrics were originally going to be a chorus, but I couldn’t think of a verse that would actually add anything to it, so I decided it would work fine […]

This is probably the geekiest song I’ll ever do… The song comes from the book The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul by Douglas Adams. In the book, Dirk Gently forgot he had a client that he was supposed to meet at 6:30 AM. When he gets there, a little over five hours late, there […]
