the road to damascus

Recommended Posts

Creativity outside the box ----- COOL!   Parts of the guitar work give be a bit of a remind of the Gang of 4 (one of my fav new wave/punk groups.

Keep 'em coming Jesse.  I love the diversity that you are bringing to the forum!

I always listen to your songs but I don't always comment because I never know what to say most of the time.  But I always like them.

I worked with a bunch of people from Syria's capital. They were a bunch of Damascussars.

No criticism is possible, only appreciation. I think it's great and fun as hell to listen to.

 

cheers,

-Tom

I have to say your stuff is really hard to comment on, the mix is always good the lyrics are great and I think I kinda liked this ... kinda but not sure, although I have become a fan of these later mixes. I would really like to see this performed live, say on Jools Holland late night show ... never gonna happen I guess. Back when 'The old gray whistle test' was around whispering Bob would have lapped this up  .... hey ho heady days 9_9

Over time, I've noticed that you're constantly trying new techniques in recording all the time.  This has led me to try new techniques myself, and I love the freedom that it gives me.  That's the effect that you have on people!

So unique. It makes me think of Vai's Flexable Leftovers. I enjoyed it. 

I noticed instrumentation following the voice at one point, (or is it throughout?). 

Who's the main influence for something like this, Zappa or...?

let me put this to rest

I have rarely experienced Zappa.  I have heard "Dental Floss Bush," and "yellow snow," as well as "shut up and play your gutar,"  A lady said I was like Bee Fart, I have the fish album, but only listen like 5 times.

My main influence is struggling through the quagmire,

gasping for fresh air,

and sometimes I choke on the pond scum. 

I seek terra firma,

and it is right there,

but I flail away,

as not to drown

so I grasp the ruddy slurry slipping through my fingers

 

 

we need to teach everyone to swim.

 

 

and I need to learn to sleep
