Description
Disclaimer: ...sometimes dark tunes make me feel better and there is always marital counseling over cutlery.

RG Paddler has had my respect and attention ever since I found this little oasis. Every tune Richard writes is an amazing piece of work... "Captain Caveman"..."Freeway of Light".."Wreckless"..."River of Life" and too many more to mention are on my ipod and played often. Paddler is one of those people here who make one ask.."Why are not you on a stage making serious money?" I am way beyond honored to have had the extreme pleasure of working with Richard. This collaboration was the most fun I have had in quiet awhile. Rich is a laid back soul and shoots back perfect tracks ...what more could you ask for? This tune is as much his as mine indeed. Thanks Rich.

RG Paddler: Slide Guitar, Keys and BVG

..... no loops no foul.
My Stuff: Rogue Series II bass, DTX Yamaha Elec. Drum Kit and WK1630 Keys ... Structured in GB .. completed in Logic Pro.

also...."dissectional" is probably not a real word and no body was disposed of.

Lyrics
i don't mean to be callous
i don't mean to be mean
but you've got a smile
that tells me you don't understand anything

i've been watching you run at nite
and how this does speak
of a tale and a sigh
a casual lie
do you know what this means?...... hey,hey

your blood in the city
they won't understand
cos here is the stump
i'm making it up and it goes on and on
it's very strange

i hand you the money
eight days a week
with time on one's hands
one has time to make plans
...... I know what I mean .....
(i'm very clear here)

.... it's just my job .....

here's to beginnings
passionate week ends
dissectional freedom
let in run in the street yeah,yeah

Well, that was an interesting track
Not sure I understand it all, but I sure like the way you put it together. Got some great back tracks that's for sure. Rich did an awesome job on the Rhodes, and the Bass line is very cool, as are your vocals, Jack

Deep and oh so cool my friend,

Marital Bliss (w/RG Paddler)
Probably wasn't what you were going for but, the piano, heavily distorted guitar, analog synth, and particularly the background vocals are extremely pink floyd. That's a compliment!

This is a great song full of hypnotic atmosphere and interesting sounds. All the performances are stellar. The production and mix are first class. Yeah this one is about to generate some serious buzz around here.

Funny, it's "Jack" right? well you'll always be Mr. America to me.
No wait after listening and reading the lyrics maybe ....
"Jack the Ripper" ?
Wow! one of, if not the best backer I've heard here!
Awesome lyrics left completely open to interpretation,mine is the "Ripper", I'm a huge Pink Floyd and especially David Gilmore fan and this song could easily be on a Floyd Album! great great post!

is really quiet simple... the DTX set is fairly a cheap way to go but just so works for a hacker like me. As far as the mix...Paddler sent such pristine tracks was very easy to put this one together.... thanks a lot Ego!

oh yeah.
wow, loving this groove. OH and with addition of the distorted guitar which is perfectly placed, i would have edged them up a wee bit. The blues riff on the keys and the Indian style drum patterns are a hit too. Sleeezy eeazy vocal which is right on the money.

great track. groovy, rich, warm, comfy. everything fits together perfectly. the whispering section is sensational. great collaboration. fantastic instru-outro too...which could have gone on another 30 seconds at least....you sold yourself short there. the final drone is also a gem. love this.

I can't get the player to work so I'll just have
to blow some smoke and all like that until I get to hear this masterpiece - which I presume it is - given the notoriety of the two gents what proffered it up for consumption.
I'll be back later - and that's a fact.

nice trick guys - breaking the player and forcing the download.
If there wasn't such a great song I might harbor a resentment - but this track is just to cool to moan about anything. Great arrangement and playing - crafty lyrics and excellent vocal performance. Jack - you gotta sing more often. Well done fellas.

Cool tune. Could possibly use another chord change in the verses. I agree with one comment shades of Pink Floyd, bit I also hear Frank Zappa/Mothers of Invention especially the Rhodes/electric piano and backing vocals - and that is a good thing, both brilliant acts.

hello edwarke
..once again..welcome to the MJ zoo... very impressive first post from you and looking forward to more. Probably right about some variance but I am a very much shoot from the hip writer..check out davisamerica2 site for my friend terry's work..much more accomplished writer. The keys and backing vox..and slide guitar are the best things in the track and they are performed by Paddler (another artist well worth checking out here) Right then...some very gracious comments and I sincerely thank you for stopping by!

gail60 said 2708 days ago (June 23rd, 2010)
spooky yet interesting song
So let me get this straight. You work hard for your pay...8 days a week while your lovely wife is out having an affair. So to put her out of your misery, you kindly chop her up into tiny pieces and dispose of the body. Then you start your life over and do your own running around for a change....Does that about sum this up? Oh and one more question, when do I call 911 to report the murder?
Seriously Jack, you two guys did a great job here. Your voices compliment each other very well and although it is a dark tune, it is a very good one. Really enjoyed listening to this.

davisamerica said 2708 days ago (June 24th, 2010)
ummmm.....
well...yes. I would think the "dissectional freedom" may indicate a new way of looking at relationships...but just guessing at that. No need to call 911 ..... he cleans up nicely. Thanks Gail really glad you stopped by. About Richard ...he is just a very talented guy and I was very pleased he had the inclination to throw in here. You are a very good friend and I appreciate the very nice comments. Thanks my Texican neighbor . . .

sort of smile you mean....and it has nothing to do with Marital matters ..it's usually on the face of the over promoted pomposity that is your boss when you try to explain what it is that you are doing,and why and you can tell that they don't have a clue.....good track by the way fellahs !

Hauntingly Cool...
and perhaps a bit dangerous. This reeks of suspicion and mystery with a subtle hint of violence. It might make for a very good intro track to a TV mystery. Richard does some mighty fine work and it shows up nicely in this tune.

Curious that your comment on my old tune, "Lady-Killer" should lead me, in turn, to this song. Hmm... the plot thickens. ;)

Smooth track
Really nice collab you two!

With the title, I have to admit I was reminded of a 3 Stooges episode when Curley was shaving the ice and says, "So are you married or happy"- hehe!

Sorry I've been MIA for so long around here. Being away from home this weekend is giving me a chance to try and get caught up on the MJ emails :) With 200+ waiting, I doubt two days is enough, lol!

dissected and pieced....
well if i understand your lyrics hear..dissectional seems to impart the idea...even if not a word. Though it is certainly dissected and pieced together quite effectively.... I supposed you could have discretional freedom too..

discretion
is the better part of valor .... :-] thanks for the listen SI

outstanding stuff...
... really that doesn't say it. This tune is as near to perfect as I can imagine. The low key vibe reigns through the vox and all the instrumentals. Actually, given the fact that this, like almost all the collabs here, is an internet joint venture this recording is even more an accomplishment. It is like you both sat in the studio for a few days and worked out every aspect of this song.... all to the listening good, very good.

As our friend Feter might say, "many deep bows!"

but the vocals have too much low in them. There's a lot of rumbling here.

Otherwise a very sweet arrangement.

I can't even think of anything original or intelligent to say . . . that was SO good. It was like a completely ingenious fusion of the mood/sentiments of the blues with a prog-rock sound and feel. Great collaboration.

Very nice collaboration. Very full but yet atmospheric production. Mysterious, brooding song. Sounds like you are very much in touch with the times. Paddler does good as usual. BVC? background vocals? Nice acoustic slide.
