When I saw the new Punk RealTracks, I couldn't resist taking them for a spin.
It is very cool that PGMuisc is including genres like this.
I would love to see more "small groups of instrument" (like these) that capture a sound so well.
(Some indie/alt rock and indie/alt singer/songwriter groups?)
These are so good it took very little time to put together.

Thought I should shake it up a bit, after that last "old man" song...


Style is _PUNKRK1.STY (Punk w Held and Muted Guitars)

RealTracks in style: 2588:Bass, Electric, PunkFuzzPicked8ths Ev 165
RealTracks in style: 2585:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PunkHeldPlus Ev 165
RealTracks in style: 2584:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PunkMuted Ev 165
RealTracks in song: 2586:Guitar, Electric, Soloist PunkMurray Ev 165
RealDrums in style: RockHardLA^1-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Loose HiHat


This needs to be played LOUD - REALLY LOUD - 11+


NONE OF IT MATTERS

the tv is broken i've got nothing to do
can you think of anything novel or new
clean living is dead or at least drunk in the alley
who makes your bed? do you keep a tally?
i saw your brother with the neighborhood [*****]
saw your father at the dirty book store
saw your mother cry a mother's tears
saw your sister, she's put on some years
none of it matters, all of it's real
try not to think, try not to feel

1,2,3,4 here we come
ready or not ain't crime fun
money money money there's never enough
hand it over honey we can get pretty rough
i saw your brother now he's all alone
i saw your father breathing hard on the phone
saw your mother in your uncle's bed
called for your sister they said she was dead
none of it matters, all of it's real
try not to think, try not to feel

find yourself a job, find yourself a wife
have yourself some kids, pretend that's a life
god sits waiting in a church downtown
if you happen to see him, send him around
i saw your brother with a whole group of friends
saw your father he's working again
saw your mother with a smile in her eye
i prayed for your sister, we all know why
none of it matters, all of it's real
try not to think, try not to feel


Have at it
(and have fun - but don't hurt yourself...)

"PUNK FLOYD"--or is it "Johny Rotten Floyd"----I love it!!! Wow, I never thought I'd see the day. You should pitch this one to some of your old Nashville connections! This is a kick. Well done in every way.

Just one of many great lines!

Very dark, with a weird Tarantino/Coen brothers kind of dark humor appeal.

Great use of the "Punks in the box". Great production and mix as usual.

I Dug IT!!! Take care. Greg

A cool one Floyd! Nice to see that you're experimenting with new styles, so to speak ;-)
Very nice lyrics on this one too!

Floyd I like your versatility and that you aren't afraid to step out of the box and use all the goodies that BIAbox has to offer. Great job! I can't wait to see what else you will come up with in the future. Enjoyed it!

Well that was different.... an experiment by a versatile explorer's expedition as you fell back to earth out of an old man's mind.....

You put sugar back into your diet didn't you? That sh*t will mess you up! True to punk form it clocks at 2:38 by my eye, that's good.
Seriously it shows range, you can stretch and write something pretty
credible outside yer comfort zone, and you have a big comfort zone, now it's just humongous! I've been entertained, thanks. Some very nice guitar
playing going on here, managed to include just about every family member, extra points for that.

Kenny

I think it's time to move to Florida, my son lives in Tampa, we could have a hell of band with that kind of tunes. We could call the band The Geezers. Great song, love it, I will have to check out the style and make one too. Another FJ winner!!!!!

HA! They are going in varying new directions these days, but I don't think this is one of them....

I appreciate this reference and that you "get" that. I have never listened to punk except as a curiosity - but the best of it is exactly that - an in-your-face message wrapped in a combination of anger and dark humor.. (and chaotic music!)

I'm glad you liked it. I'm sure there will many who do not - it is not a style of music I would listen to by choice - but I do think it is really super cool that it can be done using BIAB!

Hi Floyd,

I could listen to that only twice. And now
I'm depressed! By the music and by the lyrics.
In this song you totally changed your personality.
Even the name: Punk Floyd.
You are a master of disguise.
I enjoyed the experience.

LOL, OMG, WTF, Cra-Cra! It's like getting hit by Floyd Patterson and then continuing to take punches from Floyd Mayweather.Somehow I don't think this will play well at Floyd's Barbershop in Mayberry. Mucho kudos for digging deep into the box in order to get outside of the box. Some great lines and a fabulous listen. Tom

Had a feeling you might like this, Richard... These tracks (RTs) would be great for one of your lyrics, I'm sure...

Whoa, what WAS that?

That took me completely by surprise, Floyd! I never knew you could sing like that.

What a fabulous piece of fun music. All credit to you to break away from from what we've come to expect and then make it sound like you'd been doing it forever.

And what a mix. I turned it up on the old Tannoy Reds until I could see the cones moving and believe me that's LOUD. Thought I was going to cause structural damage at one point. Needless to say, it still hung together and sounded fantastic.

Whatever next?

ROG.

Someone contact PG Music! Floyd's account has been hacked!!!!!

Just let them know, that someone with A LOT of talent hacked his forum account is using PG products to put out some pretty awesome music!

Also, tell them that they somehow morphed Floyd's voice into a TOTALLY different style...AND...that is works surprisingly well!!! As in...perfect for the style.

Listen buddy, I don't know who you are, but rest assured when FJ gets ahold of you, there are going to be some great country songs to be written about the encounter. You've been warned!

Now, until that happens, I'm going to have another listen. Whoever you are, you did a great job!

On a different note, the melody is VERY catchy. By brain has been trying to read all of the comments in that melody with your voice! I've never had THAT happen before. Nice!

Floyd !:))

Isn´t it just great, to step out of
the box and find yourself in that
uncharted territory where everything
is allowed and anything can happen ?

I love it when you step out of
that box to make these experiments
and I´m waiting for your dip into
the Bacharachian world !

I loved this because I also
love to step out of the box every
now and then and I know how invigorating
that can be not only for you and me, bbut
for everyone !

Cheers
Norman
