The Party by Craig Durgy by Durge published on 2014-01-15T16:08:20Z This is a very basic sort of Cure-like pop song that I've played for many years, typically with electric guitar and lots of reverb in parts. Three chord simplicity and one of my oldies that I had to eventually dedicate to "vinyl". As has been my tendency in these later years, I opted here to invoke some acoustic overtones by using the mandolin as the main rhythm instrument with some electronic support. It's another indulgent creation, nothing new. But it seems appropriate for the subject, capturing the thoughts of a young man that decides to go to a party where he expects to see his ex-girlfriend that dumped him after 5 years. Full of youthful naivete, once so prevalent in my life.
