Description
A number based on a poem Mary (grathy) sent me some time ago. It had something of a tribal feel to me, and this I tried to deliver with the help of James' (bass2x) magical trumpet.
A huge thank you to both Mary and James for sharing their talents with me, and their patience with me
And my apologies to all african brothers for my miserable attempt at reproducing the feel of one of their beautiful choirs

Lyrics
FROM MY FLAT ROOM
copyright Mary McGrath

They do it,
I don't know why
These of Manhattan
Blur of briefcase,
Cartier, Burberry,
Looking ahead at nowhere
Over there the yellows honk,
Scream at the sidewalks
The hurry for something
What is it
To stay ahead
Of the silver monsters
That loom overhead
Making dark sunlight
The tower of commerce
That peers down
From forty floors
At the ants
And their entrails
Climbing uphill
Pushing crumbs
Forever in motion,
Motionless.

How Did I miss This?
Man oh man oh man!

This is so fresh and has so much poured into it, yet somehow, it has a real breathable space around it.

The drums and the intro vocals got my attention from the very start, but then the horns came in and the Lauri Anderson vocals and your most excellent synths. This is so impressive and totally groovalicious. That bassline is sinister and this will definitely be draining the batteries on my iPod this weekend.

Thanks for such a great post!

I'm gonna tell all my friends!
