This is musically so engrossing. Wild! I would go so far as saying bloody genius in the way you put all this together. I enjoyed it much!

I am tea man myself. (Not a Rutles reference)

Video complements the song. Love the dancing cigarettes.

Man, your stuff has a SERIOUS 1970s Downtown NYC vibe to it!

And I mean that as a huge compliment.

I feel like I just wandered into a Velvet Underground show.

Thanks David, I fear the plastic balls explosion is inevitable.
Next vid I'll find film of Malanga & Woronov to superimpose.

Cheese & Onions for me...Dylan's tea dalliances aside.
Thanks,
It was fun to do and I'm most please with the little Am hcime I pulled off.

Phanque Rob,
I rather enjoyed early Floyd so long as Sid wasn't doing gnomes and such.

Very creative track. Wild instrumentals and some very cool use of FX. Fun video, especially the girl with ball and cigarette dance. Ending is an icing on the cake. The only thing, I believe vocals are way low.
Thank you for sharing.
Misha.

Misha,
Many thanks.
I knew where I wanted to go with the video one I found the ball.

We loved the song in its earlier debut and still love it.
Your and Gene's performance, the arrangement (love the outro) and the mix are all high bar.

Your choice of video clips is outstanding in the manner they support the lyric which is obviously the objective -- but often by many not achieved in our FWIW opinion.
BTW the girl with the bubble is a delight! And how can you go wrong with Mae?

Your video got us reminiscing about old commercials and tv ads that touted the health benefits of cigarettes and other drugs.

Well done!

J&B

PS. We smiled when we realized we were drinking afternoon coffee as we watched the vid. smile

I actually believe you are mixing your vocals higher than you used to despite so many saying they are still buried. Certainly wouldn't hurt to turn them up a little more, though. Nice work as usual and I liked the ending quite a bit. Guitar was very enjoyable. Lyrics quite novel as I've come to expect.

You are correct sir. Louder than a year ago even if this one isn't out front.
Thank you.

Thank you Sir & M'am,
Gene's very, very good.
The vid clips were fun to compile & the lovely ball lady really is an amazing flip back to the days of variety.

As someone who has a cup of coffee in the morning and a cup of tea at "afternoon tea" time I'm not immune to the popular poisons...the fact that I took a walk to the one & only local shop/general store and ate a small package of Red Frogs on the way home attests to my sweet tooth as well. Mind you, I walked to the store to buy raw sugar for my love's everfull tea cup.
Thanks for you very kind words.


Cheers

Hi rayc,

Nice suite of chords always very well thought out and well orchestrated. The voice is pleasant and the video enjoyable. Well done.

ray,

A TRULY interesting write. I like it.
The first verse descriptions of the chorus list is outstanding.

The guitars sound good.
Organ is well used.
Bass sounds good. Like the tone.
Drums are a bit "muffled" for my taste (they are "right" for 60's psychRock, though)
Vocal might do with a touch more clarity, but they are well balanced in the mix - particularly after multiple listens.

Classic PBEx sound. Applause to that.

rayc,

Cool song!
As usual, I'm nervous and excited about your chord progressions I don't know at all where they are going.
However, I've listened to your songs a lot, so I've gotten used to them.
Your musical personality is wonderful.
The overall sound, guitar playing, mix are great!
Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot.

Best regards.

Thank you fj,
I was trying for a more era appropriate rhythm section this time though I couldn't help but push the bass a bit.
I tried adding some clarity/presence to the vocal but that sweet spot is where my vocals sound least appealing so had to leave it...good ears as always...thanks.

Thanks Shigeki,
Ah, it does amuse me that folk approach my idea of chords that work together with a touch of the same guarded manner an heretic would receive.
Luckily only a few are openly hostile.
I'm glad this one worked for you.

I like it. It's weird, but in a positive way, a bit like early Pink Floyd.

I would un-bury the vocals, the lyrics are too interesting to miss half of it grin


Making bits and bytes sound good...
