Hi,

Recently we filmed a few songs at a rehearsal mostly for posterity and our own amusement, my son (the drummer) is off to Uni at the end of this month and we won't be playing or rehearsing for a while so we picked a couple of our favourite tunes to jam out a bit. We got decent basic versions down so for a little sweetening and 'just cuz' we overdubbed some stuff so these videos are a core live performance with some esoteric stuff added later. These songs are both from the 70's so I played around with Brightness/Contrast, Color 3 way, Old TV, and Lens plugins to give a faux 1970's color tv filmed sort of vibe.

The first song is our trio arrangement of Little Feat's fun and funky "Spanish Moon":

The second song requires a little more context.. If you're not a fan of Neil Young and Crazy Horse and don't dig long spacy stoner rock jams then this one may be a pass for you.. :D. Flat awkward vocal pronunciation, questionable tuning, intonation, note choices and other Neil Young anachronisms are to be found here in all their "ragged glory". I, like many went on a pretty long and enjoyable Neil Young jag in my developing years and I was pleased as punch when my son 'discovered' Neil Young this summer and this song "Cortez the Killer" is one we both are really into both musically and politically. For me the allure is the free form soloing and the fact that there are no comfy blues licks and safe scales to fall into make playing it a completely fresh experience every time and really force me to be present and in the moment when we play it and that is where I wish my playing could be all the time... 🙁

Here is Cortez:

You can't do this, guys, you have to leave room for serious criticism.
