Lyrics
"You know baby, good timing and a St. Agatha medal won't help you now."
I want to take you higher.
Life's lovely loaded with sweet smiling faces.
He goes public in phases.
Running around causing trouble and mayhem,
He won't be alone that's how he has fun.
Weaving through crowds 'till he finds all the colors one hue.
Trouble don't mean a thing, when Roland's off his chain.
He's longing for the feeling.
He goes to tourists for an easy ride.
When it's just the right season,
Lead me through places.
Lead me through faces.
Lead me through spaces.
Lead me through phases.
Lovely horror show, smothering faces out in the public.
Running around causing trouble and mayhem,
Never alone that's how he has fun,
weaving through crowds 'till he finds all the colors one hue.
You, alive!

Daug-Jazz
This is great.... Though I thought with the opening bell and the scream, that you'd run over somebody with your bike in Chinatown or something LOL...... never mind all that , speaking of 'extrodinaire' I love this Daug-Jazz style and Sammy's vocals find a great place in there..... wonderful, regards M

Nice to hear Sammy do justice on some of your art- fit like a glove, eh?

No surprises here (Xcpt the vox), but in keeping with what y'all do so well.

Definite Madness
Working on this song was like trying to herd hornets into a jar. Glad I didn't have to mix this project as it blossomed with the genius addition of Sammy Dix. Someone that I have always wondered if I would actually work with and now having done so am very happy about. Daug? What is this, our 20th? What, are we nuts?

Roland
quite an incarnation from the original which won me over. still got a copy of that one for prosperity. Andy SHINES on this version with those wild saxes. i don't think my voice has ever gone thru such a metamorphoses and survived.

As is usually the case, I'm hearing later period Zappa weirdness and complexity equally mixed. The instrumental sections scream Frank. Sammy's vocal brings an urban/progressive Fishbone vibe to this impressive track. Outstanding collaboration gentleman!

Loose in the Daug house...
So this is what happens when you let Sam and Andy loose in the Daug house? I hope they cleaned up after themselves :-) Bebop craziness. Regards, Peter

Big sound
This is crazy. Im sure you meant it that way. I could never mix something this big...so kudos. I like the bungle-ish sound in the horns!

This is insane stuff. Sammy, how can you even begin singing this. The sax is way out there. How do you mix something like this.Like that change at 2:24 with the synth bass and then that insane sax comes in ... I would have loved to hear some heavier drumming in this section ... Billy Cobham sort of stuff ... The whole thing is crazy good!!

Thanks Stan
Cobham was not available, lol, but got to agree, it would have been better... so I decided to keep it simple. I've posted 20 or so tunes with Andy, this started as something for Andy. I could not ask for better partners, Sam is just a talented man. Sam really brought the character to life, I just tried not to screw up too bad...

this should have
wore the ol' boy out pretty good. We wont hear from him for a while. First time I was able to hear this on headphones and without interuptions. How many tracks did you say? This took alot out of me - I cant imagine how you were feelin at the end of this project daug... Sammy - what can I say? you should be a sax player... that improv and lyric creation is sweet!

What if God had given us more ears? Wish he had, cuz I need 'em on this song.

Ah...here's some back story...
Over 100 tracks Andy. To tell if you have good gear, discern the orchid synth tracks, she's still there. Not all the original tracks were used in the posted. There's six solo saxophone tracks, each one discretely processed. The Daug Horns fill out the rest. I can't give you an exact description because I bounced a bunch of stuff after generation V, and of course brandy was used... I worked on this through 2 crashes. The same thing happened on "Brace". I reached the limit of what is possible with the equipment I have...
The guitar was the easiest as far as the production. He used a "MS1221", set up a "Bad Horsie" with the properly depleted energizer battery and made one pass, twenty minutes tops. Then he threatened to kill me if I cut a note or messed with his "bitch tone"... that guy has an ego problem...

Roland
The theme of the lyric goes really well with the frenetic backer. Tight playing, great vocals in the borderlands between order and chaos.

I really here a big jazz influence with some Rare Earth. Your change ups are dynamic. The engineering is flawless. Here goes Brian Auger. The influence of the late 60's early 70's is refreshing. Big Band is creeping in. Complete!

Daug pencil
Ha! Was thinking about all those changes done so effortlessly, like drawing moods when I saw the software you use. Almost inextricable to me how you guys can make music like this, but then I just resigned, relaxed and enjoyed it completely.

Pencil Power
Hello Billy. Paying real musicians to pull this off would be a very expensive proposition. This stuff is hard to play. The real downside would be touring with this band... Andy and I would be drinking too much. Sam would get frustrated at the lack of professionalism.
This are three percussion players, a couple of keyboard guys, at least five horn players in the section, we need a bass player who can do my chops and the support staff. That's a big nut right there.
With the Daug pencil it is way cheaper! There is no touring, and we don't have to play bump and grind for the girls... not that we couldn't bump and grind!

Yes Fergie I have been here since the place opened. In fall 2009, I erased the 60+ tunes I had posted since day one. The community here had changed, becoming hateful and repressive, and I needed to respond appropriately. What happened?... [see more]
