Po Faced & I Don’t Think So

These two have been around for a bit, now. I Don’t Think So is a new song, ie., it was written less than a year ago. Po-Faced used to exist under another name more than 30 (three-zero) years ago and has been recently revised resuscitated. Mucho changes. It (Po Faced) used to be a nasty, leering and disreputable piece that I had no right to put on an LP – which I did. You might ask “Why dig it up again, then?”. Well, the guitar part is fun so, despite misgivings about rewriting a song already committed to vinyl, albeit more than 30 (thirty) years ago, I’d decided to give it a go. The result is still not particularly heart-warming and spirits-lifting (something about the tune?) but – whatyagonnado?

I Don’t Think So doesn’t suffer from that historic baggage of course – in which case, I need another rationale for it’s gloomy aspect. Actually, I’m foolin’ with you: it’s full of wit and humour and wry irony and other stuff like that. Well…

While it’s not a stone-cold certainty these will get on the CD, they are in with a chance.

I’ve posted them on some sites to get some feedback and they’ve been there for while. As they say, here be the links (again):

What is Uneasy Listening?

Well, it’s the working title of the new project which in time will be a CD. To call it something at this stage gives it some “personality” which may influence the content. I’ve already got a few songs earmarked for inclusion some of which are already recorded and exist on my hard drive as scratch mixes. A couple are even on the song page of the main site and posted elsewhere on the ‘net. (Also see above.) There’s also a couple that are just written which need to be practiced up and played in public before I’ll be convinced about their inclusion. More of this anon.

I’m even toying with the idea of staying with the outdoors feel for CD booklet art and keeping with the courier font for the written content. This just appeals to my sense of these CDs being the component parts of an overall project. Maybe this is not the right way to go. We’ll see.
