Description
Bud posted this song a couple of weeks ago. We were talking on the phone and I asked if he minded if I played with it, and he was kind enough to send me his original file. This was actually really hard for me to do, as it is a very velvet underground/jesus &mary chain type of affair, and I didn't know what to do with all of the treble. it's integral to the song, but for some reason it was a battle between me and the EQ (i think the treble won). I tried to add some bottom end (since the J&MC never had any), just as an experiment. I actually did this re-mix in my car while waiting for my co-workers. Not much except I changed the synth sounds, added backups, and a ring modulator. My backup vox were done with the pinhole mic, and I mixed on earbuds (in honor of Bud). I probably didn't add anything at all in terms of the song, but I had fun with it anyways. Hope you like Kevin. here's a link to the original by Bud.

thanks Feter
the vox I did are pretty sloppy, but I left them that way because it was getting hot in the car with the windows up and the air conditioning off. always good fun to work with Bud, we have a very similar outlook on things (music and otherwise). he's a great guy, and happens to be talented to boot. if i didn't like him so much, i'd hate him. :)

Very trippy
Psychadelic and a good tribute to BUD. The vocal, both in melodies and arrangements contrast the dirty layer of guitar and bass sounds with it's almost 60's melodica. It is so interesting to see what people come up with doing collabs, as I recently did a song with BUD myself. And now, of course I need to listen to the original, I know, backwards, but hey... :) This was a very good listening to me. Very!

Great work Michael
I love the new EQ and it's a real pleasure sharing vocals with you. Feter's right - one of us has to move. The ring mod was a brilliant touch. Thanks for giving this a spin - in the car no less.

hey Kevin
glad you approve. wish i would have been able to add some instruments, but really there was nothing left to say. when i opened the file my first impulse was just to leave it be. it was perfect. but i decided to mess with it after being stuck in the car for an hour. thanks for your creativity on tap.

really good song,a nd that's all on Kevin. i just twisted a few knobs, cranked the bass and did a really half ass backup vocal. BUD RULES.

Bud is getting some very good exposure lately. Love the guitar on this. Reminds me of the Pixies.

M2, very nice vocals.

Bud Friday!
I like it Vic! I too was noticing that it seems to be Bud Cover Week or Day or whatever... I'll have to see if there is anything I can do justice too!

M2 you did a good job on this! Nothing to hide about at all!

angst and longing
love the bottom end, very cool, and the clean vox are a pleasant surprise, also, nobody does beatleseque backups like you dude. you really changed the emotional vibe of the tune, Bud's original was straight up angst and this is more teen bedroom longing.
