my first home produced original song with vox :D The singing is rough because I have a cold at the moment. I am going to redo them when I recover.

for the record this song is NOT autobiographical and I have never work in an abbatoir :lol:

Comments and criticisms most welcome :thumb:

thanks rain :D. I am glad you like it. I am proud of this one.

I had the tune in my head for a while and didn't know what to do with it. The trouble was I kept thinking of a horn arrangement but since I don't have a decent midi capability I decided to do the horns on guitar.

thanks guys. so many kind words

sdstd, an abatoir is a slaughterouse. :eek: Thanks for the comments. I am pleased you picked up on the ray davis thing, I kind of had him in mind when I did the vocals. it is a kind of bittersweet black comedy.

Mickey -many thanks mate. I don't think I sound particularly bluesy but I'll go with it :D

Mike4Beta - Thanks dude, glad you enjoyed it. :)

Flair - thanks chap. And btw after a load of false starts your CD's are finally being posted today by my wife. She has no excuse this time, she has just left with them and all she needs to do is put them in a jiffy bag she works right next to the post office :). I really am sorry for the delay mate. I don't know how long they will take to get through but if there are any problems once they arrive pm me and I will do what I can to help

I liked the double-tracked vocals and sound effects!! There's a retro feel to this without sounding too much like any particular band; I hear elements of Bowie, Syd Barrett-era PF, etc. Really cool tune and nice overall production work!
