Zodiac Killer

December 29th, 2008 + 12:12 PM  ·  Stoppel

An old song I recorded in 1997 after reading an article about a serial killer known as Zodiac Killer in the NY Times.

Same instruments as the other ancient old ditties from the vault.

Too bad I had to mix this from a multi track tape into a one track digital file...The end mix could have been better if I were a good studio engineer... with the right apparatus.

Thought I'd release it anyway..

Inspired by a Monty Python poem, and by Thor they are the very best, came up a little song 11 years ago. Dug up the cassette (those were cases with tape to record stuff with) from the vault and turned it into a digital file.

The drummer is Dr Rhythm a guy who came from Boss.
The bassplayer is me, playing my Rickenbacker 4001 from 1977
The guitar player is me, playing the Hondo II.

I tried to clean up the tracks with my pc but it was too hard to synchronize the tracks from my Fostex into digital tracks, so I had to mix every track into just one....which does not get me the best sound quality. But hey....its the idea that matters...

Boring Life

Ancient old ditties from the vault.

Recorded back in 1997 with my Fostex X-26

Instruments used:

Drums: Ludwig kit with Rogers snare (recorded with crappy mic)
Double Bass: Musima from East Germany
Guitar: Hondo II

One of the first songs I recorded, after getting my Fostex multitracker home studio, was this rockabilly song Boring Life....about how nothing ever happened in my life. Apart from playing gigs with the rockabilly - bluegrass band I was in, in those years.

The drums are terrible, due to recording them with a bad mic, but also the timing is not that good. I thought I'd take it from the vault anyway....somebody out there might enjoy it somehow.. I did when I recorded it back then.
