This is the first collab I have done. It was originally a Lou Reed Track but I sort of ACDC'd up the backing. I recorded the backing track and vox and asked god* if he could do a couple of Mick Ronson type maniac solos as in the original. He did and ther are totally manic - it is more like he sprayed molten guitar on it!!

Hey, even if you don't like the song, the solos rock!

* God = Wahwah Watson :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

This song is what rock-n-roll's all about!! I loved the guitar solos as they fit the song perfectly! My only comment about your vocals is that you don't sound quite angry enough. I'd try some growling or several shots of whiskey before each take! :drunk:

Lol thanks everybody!! ksdb, the original song wasn't really as violent as the title suggested. it was more a kinda joke "vicious you hit me with a flower" sort of thing. After singing that line I couldn't stop smiling through the rest of it so it was a bit hard to sound mean lol. that and the fact I can't sing to save my life :)

Fuck, I'm paying you too much mate! Seriously embarrased with that introduction. :icon_redf When I get up at 5.45am tomorrow morning to go to my shitty job sending shit out from Heathrow Airport in a van, I'll remember that I should be on a fucking cloud drinking milk and honey from a Page 3 girls chuff! God isn't a fat 42 year old mate...he's 29 with a ginger beard, thick glasses and drinks in the Bull and Gate!

Getting back to reality, I didn't get to hear the vocals or the finished article until 3 minutes ago and I think you did a great job; vocals are nice and Lou-ish. Great work mate...I'm up for anything else you fancy. I really fancy doing some Blink182 cos their last album fookin' rocks! :rock:

I like the idea of sounding a little manic - a little angst always seems to go over well with the younger listeners!

Man, there are so many good things about this recording. I know that you are going to totally reject this compliment Goport, but this is a very professional-sounding recording, all-around. If I heard this playing on a friend’s stereo, I would think it was from a real CD. Every instrument is very evenly balanced in this and I really loved the ACDC-meets-80s Alternative-solid-state-amp guitar tone with the slight chorus(?). I am not familiar with this original but it was a good song. Your voice in this and the Buddy Holly recording make me think that you could do some songs by The Clash. Anyway, this is an inspiring recording. Makes me wanna go down and jam.

WahWah, your years of experience shine through on your leadwork. Very good mix with this song.

I know I have pumped this but I really want to make sure that everyone realises that Wahwah collabed on this (probably against his better judgement) and the guy deserves the accolade.it isn't often you see genius at work and when it is on yourown track you have to take stock. I am sure Geordie and Mondo will understand wahwah is a class act and I was as pleased as punch to have the ex black rose guy on this. Respect!! :thumb:
