Having had quite a bit of time off from my real job over Christmas and the New Year, I took the opportunity to work on a song that I originally wrote back in 2005 called ‘Weekend Warrior’. I started work on the recording early last year and shelved it but decided to resurrect it in a moment of madness. It just needs a few overdubs and mixing and it will be ready to be released into the big wide world.

New track up -
Sometimes it’s fun to forget about lyrics and concepts for a while and just have some self-indulgent fun. Well that was the idea but, in fact, this track took longer to sort out than some of my ‘proper’ songs with lyrics. This is because I get bored very quickly and I find it hard to flesh out an instrumental track for 4 or 5 minutes. I find it easier to write real songs with lyrics and a verse-bridge-chorus structure.
There a very few artist that can make repetition work . Aphex Twin, Underworl and Kraftwerk spring to mind but even these revered masters push it sometimes.
Anyway, I’m happy with the track and the poky little drums sounds were fun to work with. I hope you enjoy
I am getting the overwhelming urge to write a Christmas song. I’m not talking about the usual naff toss but something a bit more real. Watch this space…
PS This may never actually happen!
