My Creation (W/ Vic Holman)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
It was an honor to have the great Vic Holman to play on this one. He also pumped up the production.

I wrote this around 1995. It's probably the only tune to survive "the band days". I guess I managed to write it down as you can see in the pic. This one has had many incarnations and this is the newest improved version. I think Vic does a lot of cool things with my voice and he also provide some tasty guitar work. Thanks Vic

Lyrics
My Creation

Everyone go and get yourself some education
As everyone goes I write in my own language
The child has spoken, so you’d better stop and listen
Now that you heard me you notice there’s something missing

You’re gonna’ go to hell if you cast that spell
And let your mojo rise
And then I tap the well in the nighttime chill
As all of those angels lie

Now you notice I haven’t roamed in the green grass
I used to have reservations for flying first class
Listen to the child he’s been sinking in the quicksand
He’s saying something I’m sure you all will understand

You’re gonna’ ring the bell as the siren yells
And get yourself back to school
You got a friend named Dell and a bag to sell
Boy, you’ve been such a fool

I think you have seen the picture of my creation
Because time and space have never had any relation
Dancing as you step on a piece of glass
Everyone stops and points and laughs again

You’re gonna’ break out of jail and raise your sail
And free all the slaves
You’re all out of pot, cause that’s all that you got
Time to ride the waves and fly

You don’t have to work all day
You don’t have to do what they say
You don’t have to follow their ways
You don’t have to have a king
You don’t have to do a thing
You don’t have to do anything

Just rock and let it roll…

Great one!
Great lyrics backed by Vic's guitar. Your vocals have a bit of a punk feel, which I think is really appropriate for the lyrics.

Great stuff, you two!

Wow
Like the Alice in Chains covering the Plastic Ono Band. I'm not sure that's ever been said before. But it's super cool. Vox sound really cool. Not just Vics treatment, but your performance is spirited.

Vics guitar licks are top tier, as always. Great job guys.

nice creation
cool song. It seems to contain elements of different rock subgenres with a common f***-you attitude - punk, garage, psych, glam? gotta like that. oh yeah, great guitar solo too.

NIIIICCCE!
Love the rockfest in this, Raw... just the way I like it...you guys got a great rock show going on this.
The lyrics are enigmatical yet familiar, the guitar riffs well constructed. The double vox work really well. Yes and Vic's solo is golden. I like how the mini break is used for the ending - neat!

Big Vic production
Fantastic sound on this Dave and Vic - clear as a bell. I just commented on another song about it "not sounding very organic", but this is just the opposite. It's rough and raw and so rock and roll. Excellent post.

First of all, thanks for letting me dissecting your original files.
I like the energy in it, that i was strapping the guitar and ready to roll to add some additional rhythm guitar & leads.

thanks agin for letting me on board, it was such a rush for me.

Crud...
How did I miss this!? Why are the "send emails on new tunes..." suddenly NOT working again...

Sorry Dave and Vic... I don't understand how I missed this...

Wow... those guitars mean business! This song doesn't ask it demands a tapping or rather stomping foot!

Nicely done guys!

paul f. page said 2825 days ago (September 28th, 2009)
I'm not really qualified...
...to comment on the style (others do that much better above), but the production is super. There is a certain "in-your-face-ness" with the vocal here that is arresting and compelling simultaneously. Vic's additions are cool, too. He's always got a great ear for what works and the skills to pull it off with panache. ... While I don't listen to too much of this genre, I must say that THIS owes no bows to anyone. It rocks on its own. Nice.
Peace.

Nice that you could come over to a different genre. I'm glad that there was something to this tune that caught your ear. Vic did an outstanding production job in my opinion.

Thanks a lot,
