gonna post my thoughts on this one sometime soon. when I first heard it, I was a little disappointed. can't remember why, except for Empty Balloon. I loved the original recording, especially with the slow, minimalist guitar.
awesome, glad you liked it!
hm, it varies. the covers get expensive (maybe $15 per track annually?) and then I think I'm on their two-artist label subscription, like $35 annually? I'm not sure what the cost is for one artist.
I like my friends, too. and thanks for the nice words!
Yes, it's a cover of Earwig, small scottish band:
I love playing that song at open mics. I added an ending that's not on the recording that I do live, just the words, "You're mine" at the end deep from the lungs. repeated several times. It's a great choice, because it's a stalker/psycho song, so you know anyone who talks to you isn't going to be your usual fake LA crowd. I played at in this one great hippie open mic bar in Berkely, with the usual hippie vibe of songs, and the sound guy was so grateful to hear something different he added echoes to my vocals. ha, it was great.
I don't know why I haven't checked this out yet. I'm excited to listen to this. One day at my home, my computer played "Everyone that's someone" and my partner got hooked on the lyrics. We sometimes sing it out loud. We regularly play Jack O Diamonds and sing My shits...
I am unfamiliar with most songs on this new release. You shaped hole is beautiful. Remember when James covered it?
Anyway thanks Thomas. You rock.
