In Uncategorized on March 26, 2010 at 6:04 pm

This week’s premium installment is brought to you in partnership with A Steady Drip. A Steady Drip is an experiment in grassroots independent publishing. Check out A Steady Drip’s table of contents for more great forward-thinking multimedia production.

Week 28 of the song a week project features the band “Land Camera” and very liberal use of Placid Audio’s “Copperphone” microphone. All verse sections of acoustic guitar and voice were done with the Copperphone. As per usual, it was written and produced in less than one week over the course of several evenings.

Lyrics:

It’s high time you got me high and we sat there in silence
We never talk anyway
Life is just like a video that no one’s rewound and the static is deafening
All this just for a melody, your number’s been called and your paper’s been graded

Oh no don’t you offer me something
I don’t want it now and I won’t want it later
Oh no don’t you offer me something
I don’t want it now and I won’t want it later

I guess its not as bad as I know that it could be and thankful I am for that.
Life is going the right way but knowing in your heart that you’re gonna have to stray
And I know if I had to choose again that I’d do the right thing and there’d be no choice to make

Oh no don’t you offer me something
I don’t want it now and I won’t want it later
Oh no don’t you offer me something
I don’t want it now and I won’t want it later

Players:
John “Little Italy” Lazenby III: Mandolin, bass, Juno
Callie Harmon: Electric guitar, Farfisa
Bob Stagner: Drums
Charles Allison: Glockenspiel, Celeste, Vibraphone, Piano, acoustic guitar, voice
