10. Black Star Radiohead
Well, this is one of the weirdest shuffles, in my opinion. The first song is one that Matty Boy and I recorded back in 1985. I have several versions of this song in different styles which we recorded over the years but never released, for some strange reason. However, if you are interested in hearing the music of The Wonders of Science, I have put together a cd which Matty Boy has. If you are interested in purchasing one, email me.
So much for the plug. #3 is a song I recorded in 1987. It is built around an Emaj.7 chord which the lead guitarist said "sounds like a gator chord." It's a song about voodoo and Papa and Baby Doc of Haiti. I don't have cds of A Cruel Hoax available yet. Two XTC songs! A great cut from Trio by Dolly, Linda, and Emmylou. Bach, Palestrina, and an American Hymn, plus Radiohead! I don't know how many of you remember Arrested Development, but they had their 15 minutes of fame back in 1992.
I See You!
