FBI – Dub Version

by on Sep.28, 2009, under covers, tracks

I promised this a while ago.  It’s a dub version of The Shadows’ 1961 hit, FBI.  I was reminded of this after seeing Cliff Richard on the telly the other night talking about his forthcoming reunion tour with his famous backing band.  Despite being influenced quite heavily by Hank & co, I won’t be rushing out to buy a ticket (however my mother might 🙂

Here’s some tv footage of the original

Incidently, this was also one of the first tunes I learned to play on the guitar.

We Dub, Wee Groove

by on Feb.24, 2009, under tracks

Back to music production after a break. I’ve been manipulating some of the recordings from the We Dance, Wee Groove performance at the Scottish Youth Theatre in November. At the start of the show – whilst people were arriving, I would improvise on the guitar (with lots of delay) over a reggae drum loop. At the close of the show we’d use of same loop and I would do some scratching over it, using some samples of a certain person (who shall remain nameless – he gets too much publicity)!  I used the Ms Pinky system to make this happen.  Dave Boyd provided some additional live percussion.

Anyway, I pulled some of the highlights together in Ableton with some additional sounds to make a complete track.  Here is the result:
