Going Down... by The East Village Vampire published on 2012/07/23 06:54:06 +0000 This song - if you want to call it a song - is a bit of an oddity. I guess I would describe it as Tom Waits meets the singers from the film Rocky (you know, the guys singing ‘Take It Back’ around the trash can). I can't actually recall exactly when I recorded it, but it would have to be more than 5 years ago. Over time I have gathered heaps of tracks like this. Just little sketches that gather dust and never find there way to becoming full songs. Some are experiments, some are bad, but just every now and then some are pretty good. In this case, I was basically wondering if I could use my body as an instrument. How pretentious is that? You can hear me clapping, beating my chest, singing in falsetto, stomping feet, creating sound effects, etc. For some reason my voice started to sound like Tom Waits in the verses. So strange. If nothing else, I really like the line ‘staying out after dark – this what you get’. To me there is something really threatening in that. Obviously ‘Going Down’ is nothing more than a short experiment. I hope you will find it interesting. Enjoy!
