Big Kids feat Erin G: Little bit o’ Something

Yo it’s Erin G heading up the Big Kids with their new single LITTLE BIT o SOMETHING.

Oh yeah!

 

Remember Me, Marlena

We had an Easter Monday Jam with the Posse of Wonderful (variously called Law of the Sea, The Night Terrors, Grown Man Cry, or Hey Let’s Play Some Music.)

In amongst all the Beatles etc, one of the tracks was a version of Sinnerman, which I find is a spiritual made popular by the Weaver’s long before Nina Simone got to it. Our version of it rocked out at about seven minutes, still well short of her epic version.

In the same mood and the same key, we did a bang up job of Blue Boy”s Remember Me, that 90’s dance hit with the sample from Marlena Stewart’s Woman of the Ghetto.

I find that my wife, despite not being at all a woman from the ghetto, can really pull off quite a believable version of this. I have had it in my head ever since.

Our version was actually much better than this…

Here’s the original Marlena Stewart live track. Our version was not much better than this. How could you be?

Song From Years Ago

This is fine music, if I do say so. Punk and post-punk afficianodas might not like it as much as other stuff I do but as far as I’m concerned it’s the equal of all my other gear. It was made between 2006 and 2008 in Adelaide and Honiara. If I ever end up settling in one place, I might like to form a band doing this sort of thing. There’s more to follow in this vein, too.

BORING BACK STORY / SITE NEWS:

Back about eighteen months ago I had the zany notion that it would be possible, somehow, to market and plug all my various different musical products under one name: Unbeknownst. (I chose the name partly because I liked the idea of forming a band by stealth over the internet). I made a website – now stangnant – called Unbeknownst Recordings where I intended to put up all my different styles of music. I got the domain name, bought a space upgrade so I could host mp3s, and I was cooking with professional-smelling gas. Temporarily…

Looking back, I now realise this was a bogus idea, borne in a tropical heat haze and fuelled by whiskey and soda. I record with Lee only very rarely and haven’t added anything new to that site in over six months…except that all the mp3s for this site have to be hosted over there. But this site is where the action is. So, it’s really starting to look like this has all ended up the wrong way round…

To cut to the chase, I’ve imported the old Unbeknownst mp3s post over here. That domain and upgrade will expire in May. All the old files will remain, but beyond that, I’ll do all my hosting over here…

Great Southern Steve.
