Lyrics
what shall i do today ?
what shall i do today ?
shall i work or shall i play ?
what shall i do today ?
it\'s that time again . . .
it\'s that time again . . .
the leaves are falling, the mountains calling,
it\'s that time again . . .
way down in south wales there\'s a little town,
and up there on a mountain . . .
country john can be found . . .
walking through the fields with a carrier bag,
drinking white lightning™ . . .
and smoking a fag
he\'ll take five hundred home . . .
and dry \'em out in a box
do twenty-five up on the hillside . . .
staring at the rocks
go go . . .
champignon magique . . .
champignon magique . . .
c\'est la fantastique !
champignon magique . . .

long-awaited for sure! bravo on the effects & sonic
meanderings.. i had no clue where things were going to
go next. on top of that, some cool musical happenings as
well. the volume seemed way too pumped in places, but
there again, it's a trip

cheers _ . . .
it's taken quite a while to finish this . . .
. . . rushed the production a bit
but it was doing my head in . . .
and i just wanted to get rid of it !

hope to get the third chapter done by next autumn ; )

Groovy trip
Blimey, you've just given me a coughing fit. Fantastic
stuff ... you're totally off the planet ... I haven't
laughed so much since I heard the last one. Well
worth the wait, and I will display my country john™
bumper stickers with pride. I can't believe you got
your mam to say "tidy like"...

cheers rebsie . . .
my favourite bit is when country mam says 'safe' . . .
it still makes me laugh, and i've heard it 100 times !
. . . she's much further off the planet than me though !

nice one

Bloody marvellous
Came here as you were kind enough to post on mine and
discovered a gem.

Funnily enough I used to live in a godforsaken hamlet
South Wales when I was 19 and play in a very, very bad
band there and things seemed much as you describe back
then.

( and our apples are still on the trees : )

which G.f.h did you stay in ? . .

ha ha!
Thanks for letting me know this was up! I like how
you change between song, sound effects, and
spoken dialogue... it's like a messed up children's
book... and when you are talking to your mum it gets
me laughing every time!

lmao
man this is brillant how in the f uc k did you come up with
this ? Loved all the usual instruments and the weird vocal
effects. Loved the lyrics but this passage confused me
care to explain ; )

walking through the fields with a carrier bag,
drinking white lightning™ . . .
and smoking a fag
he\'ll take five hundred home . . .
and dry \'em out in a box
do twenty-five up on the hillside . . .
staring at the rocks

nice one . . .
cheers dave . . .
well . . . let's see . . .
. . . the shroomer's traditionally use a plastic *carrier bag to collect the
harvest.
. . . *white lightning™ is a very cheap, very strong 'white cider'.
. . . a *fag is slang for a cigarette.
. . . a good harvest is about *500.
. . . take them home and *dry 'em out for the rest of the year.
. . . ( or make a tea out of 100 or so . . . for your mates and your mam )
. . . a nice fresh dose is about *25 - 35.
. . . eat these up the *mountain while your 'on the pick'
. . . and they'll guide you to the best crops !
. . . spend the day then *staring at rocks and laughing to yourself !

safe . . .

speechless
that was a lot of fun from start to finish, and your
renditition of johnny b. goode is smoking. tell me though,
how did you structure this? is all the music covers or just
johnny b goode? i'll have to look into chapter 1. great
stuff.

country john said 5282 days ago (February 5th, 2005)
structure . . . what's that ?
cheers scoots . . .
i kinda make it up as i go along . . .
i must have some basic plan somewhere
in my head of how i want things to turn out ? . .
. . . but more often or not my songs take on their
own form with all the layers i keep adding.
the musical structure of this is :
C D G repeated all the way through . . . on different instruments.
radio intro is a dennex donor™ piano song 'axed-up'
with a johnny b goode middle section . . .
( still can't believe you thought it was smoking ! . . cheers : )
then back to C D G with samples of all my other songs layered over . . .
with a bit of sloop john b thrown in for good measure !

stay tuned for the next chapter . . .

What's that Tiny Clanger? Safe?
What can I say? Possibly the most original thing I've
heard on MacJams so far and very funny. I love the
middle cut-up bit (can I say samples?). But be careful
with that volume, Eugene, er, I mean John. Nice to
hear Country Mam is getting a more prominent role.
And I think staying away from Argos is the safe thing
to do. Keep 'em coming, oh Countrified one. Sorted!

thanks for the nice comment . . .
syd is one of my all time heroes . . .

and Johnny B Goode is a nice touch.

I'm amazed at your creativity. I hope I don't have to wait
as long for your next one, but if it's as good as this, it's
worth the wait.

Listen to Chapter 1, then Chapter 2 straight after, and it
does mad things to you head.

Petition for Chapter 3.
