Shoe Fetish



 Genre: Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

Yet another track found on Dirge's computer after her death. This one is not so dark though. A few notes here. The vocal arrangement differs quite a bit from the original track I found. I spread her verses out twice as long as the original. I guess you'd say I turned the clock into halftime to the original feel. I don't think the writing was complete, but her mother wanted this so I made it work. This gave the track more clock time. Also her vocal track for some reason had a hyhat mixed onto it. No way to get rid of that so I integrated it. I used it throughout trying to make it feel like it was intentional. It was either that or scrap this idea. So if you hear a hyhat that is out of place a little you know what I was up against.

Another note - I tried something different on this. You'll notice a sound effect of walking clicking shoes. Put that in there to bolster the zaney feel of this, and then it hit me to put it on time with the clock and use it as a rhythm instrument. LOL Ended up working I thought. In general the feeling of this was supposed to be a spoof. Crazy fun the way a shoe fetish is. Not normal, and totally self absorbed self gratification. Kinda like ZZ-Top's "TV Dinners" except this is considerably more jazzed up rock. Another genre bender where hard rock and jazz meet to make fun. The whole thing is not meant to be taken too seriously. I saw it as an opportunity to produce something of Nicola's that was not so dire and deathly dark. Hope you like it. I had a ball with the idea...

Why don’t you get yourself a shoe-fetish ?
Unfettered lust goes unchecked round here,
Mainly because it’s in my head,
Mainly because it’s in my head,

All I ask…(is)
Don’t manhandle my sandal
And be careful not to get my platform shat-on.


Don’t manhandle my sandal
I’m the type of shoe-wearer who would frown upon such a jpeg.

This was done some time ago. I think I need to tame the highs. In the very least I need to re-mix. I think the ultra highs are too much. I was up against a strange situation with the hyhat mixed in with he vocal.

Interesting blend of influences. I hear some Zappa in the vocal arrangement, and some reggae in the groove. Drums sound great, and that keyboard solo is fantastic.

good on you for bringing unfinished files to life. I read the sad story re: Dirge in a previous post, and its cool what you're doing for her mum. Technically it sounds great. Its a hard thing to do after the fact (sculpting a musical bed to voice)
