Get Flash to see this player.

Description
a song originally conceived for a 1974 album release by a power trio. however they kept modifying the song with chord changes, riffs, lyrics, etc. so this song got shelved. the biggest change however was that the guitarist started pursing his lips a lot more.

Lyrics
Badge of Lies


the sun and the moon
don’t rise from the same bed
there is no parting
a fraction of discontent

i was such a believer
now i’m a little wiser
i spoil the deceiver
and his lies


a touch of descent
a world full of deceit
a word from a liar
spreads like a rat in heat

i was such a believer
now i’m a little wiser
i spoil the deceiver
and his lies

so goes the follower
crossing a bridge to where
the river and the air
breathe in dispaire

i was such a believer
now i’m a little wiser
i spoil the deceiver
and his lies

Well - the title was a giveaway for me
that's as much as I'll say for now - being first and all. Really well done Vic. Perfect guitar tone and great job on the vocals. The drummer is a little more laid back than usual tonight though. Sweet.

Ambitious
but I think you pulled this off.

The guitar tone is perfect (maybe a bit of side to side panning wouldn't have gone amiss ;-) )

Cheers

I literally "got" this one in 10 seconds, you nailed the guitar sound so perfectly. Trower was always my go-to in the days when some new bud was scored and I did that sort of thing. Frank Marino and Mahoganey Rush was also another fave, but I digress. Nice blistering lead work on this one Vic!

What were they thinking when they decided to leave the gem out?
I reckon it the best song on the album!! Well done Vic.

Lovely guitar work.
This could almost make people believe in time travel; you captured that 70s style and mood perfectly. I'm not familiar with the other work being mentioned in many of the other comments, but who cares, this is fine enough to stand up on its own feet as well as being a tribute.

Budge of size
The composition and the guitar work are spot on. You would need to drink a bottle of whiskey or gargle with Sterno to get near to the fabulous vocalising of James Dewar, but you do a creditable job. This challenge has been a lot of fun. (Super pic too, Vic.)

Badge of Vic...
You are a musician of parts, many, many parts. And this one is another gem. The guitar is mesmerizing and your vocal has shades of some obscure bass player from band of a rich cream. Enjoyed...
