Description
LIOLI submission #3...with apologies to Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield & every utha bad Mutha on da streets!
Bits of loopyness & a rather blunt pencil were used in the destruction of this track...
It just goes to show that too much coffee can be bad for you...

He's a bad mutha....

Get down!
and all that funky kinda stuff. I see Isaac Hayes in the later stages of his life, cruising through the Candelo markets balancing a stack of "Home Made Icecreams" in all their psychedelic flavours, being fed the contents by some local soul sisters. Best not to think sometimes ;)
Lots of fun Alf - now get back to work!
Nice one,
Neil

'Isaac Hayes' ice cream brand...
...also known as 'the Chef' in the 'South Park' cartoon....well, hmmm, I won't be making 'chocolate salty balls' ice cream....(if you know the cartoon- you'll know what I mean)

....but we hope to @ least sell our own versions (...legal, of course!)

...OK, OK, Now I'm going back to work (sheesh, even my local Macjammer pal reckons I spend too much time on this site!) ;)

Cheers, my Friend!
All The Best,
Alf

get on
down with yo bad self. The brass section really worked well in here.

alfalpha said 3898 days ago (March 18th, 2007)
the brass...
...section has decided to go on strike after my subjecting them to hours of cruel arrangements. Being a trumpet player myself I thought it better this way!
Many Thanks Harold!

What is this about again??
It took me the entire song to read all your keywords. :-)

You kept it simple, yet made something unique. Your soundbed is a perfect flashback -- strings, piano, flute and all. This is so evocative, I think I might have put it under film scoring although of course disco works perfectly well.

alfalpha said 3900 days ago (March 17th, 2007)
Magritte...
...I also had the problem of genre selection....perhaps 'crappy rip-off' might be the most accurate. (;))
Thank you so much for popping around!
(LOVED your take btw!)

Inspector Alf
This music comes straight out of a seventies TV detective series! Splendid tune, Alf, lots of fun, and i just looove the brass section.... Great production as well.

alfalpha said 3898 days ago (March 18th, 2007)
I would say..
...that this piece came out of a 70's Defective Series! LOL! I really 'Shafted' this one...;)
Cheers Walter!

Nice Job!
Alfalpha, this sounds great! Straight outta the '70's sound- I can't help but think about shows like Starsky & Hutch, or Kojack while listening. This would have made a good track for those T.V. shows, I think.
alfalpha said 3898 days ago (March 18th, 2007)
Cliches are...
....are my middle name...'Chupachup' might have been a good title for this ;)
Cheers & Thanks Mikey!

Yeah, what he said
This is cool, cliches and all... man, you really made the funk work for you, and the strings, tamborine, bass tone, horns, everything reinforces that sweet 70's grooviness. Very cool.

I really appreciate you coming around for a listen David!

alfalpha said 3898 days ago (March 18th, 2007)
I really hope...
...you don't get fired for dancing on your desk! (Assuming that you're at work)
If you're not at work, I hope you don't get fired for dancing to this tune anyway! LOL!
Many Thanks for your kind words Smokey!

Coulda sworn I posted my comment -
this morning but it's been a busy day. You hit this so head on - you're one bad mutha. Great production from the wah bass to the strings and horns. Well done!
Check out my latest song called Oh Coast
alfalpha said 3898 days ago (March 18th, 2007)
it seems that...
...we both had a touch of nostalgia, you w/ your great take on Mancini (w/ a touch of surrealism) & my dismal rehash of the 70's! ;-)
Cheers Bud!

Awesome!
I 'member the time before, y'see, when the jive was no jive... but yoots today... they don' understand the jive. They see the hair, an' the collared shirts an' cars big enough to put another car in, an' they just laugh, they thinks it's FUNNY an' all, but they don' think about how we was lookin' with the hair an' the shirts an' drivin' to the dance, slappin' on enough aftershave to make our eyes bleed. This is the music when we was COOL, dancin' with girls an' pretendin' our eyes weren't bleedin' from the aftershave.

(With apologies to Bill Cosby)




alfalpha said 3898 days ago (March 18th, 2007)
at least you...
...only have to apologise to Bill Cosby....my sins are far greater & I think my penance will have to encompass the entire music of the 70's!
Thanks So much for coming around to visit & leaving a comment!
Cheers Rik!

Coffey Time
Man you brought out some memories with this loop-oh-phage. Nice cutting. Yeah, reminded me of all those ghetto movie tunes of old and that of that great guitar player who played behind much of that genre, Dennis Coffey ( http://www.denniscoffeysite.com/ ), who's still playing these days.

this is sooo baaad. You've created a time machie but its super charged with the updated rythym section. The synth/flute lines are just too frakin cool. Kudo's very hip.

The chuggachugga guitar, then the piano, the strings, the flute.....

It all makes me say "where have I heard this before".

This is a most excellent ripoff of every blaxploitation soundtrack cliche.
