Walk And She Walk by The East Village Vampire published on 2012/07/30 04:03:13 +0000 ‘Walk And She Walk’ is a loud, psychedelic rock throw away that I recorded in 2009. It is just some fuzzed up fun. As many of you know, I have my vault and then I really have my vault. This one is from the absolute darkest, deepest depths of my back catalogue. In fact, I have never played it for anyone up until now. The most obvious aspect of the song is the drum sample taken from The Door’s ‘Break On Through’. I really didn’t write 'Walk And She Walk' with the sample in mind, but I realized that the original rhythm track was basically identical to The Doors’ classic. My thinking? Surely John Densmore could do a better job than me. Needless to say, I don’t own the rights to use this sample but since I am not doing anything commercial with the track I imagine it doesn’t matter. The music is inspired by the many great mid-60’s garage bands – The Animals, Them, The Easybeats, The Small Faces etc. I think I have maybe 5 guitars playing at various points throughout the track (let me count: rhythm, slide, double time guitar in 2nd verse, fuzz lead, clean lead – possibly more in there). It is just me having a good time over some fuzzed up, lo-fi garage rock. I don’t know about the song, but I think I did a pretty good job making it sound like it was from the era. There is even a Vox like organ and some hand claps in there. I actually think the most interesting part of the song is the extended jam at the end. In particular, at about 4:10 I like how it goes from loud to pretty chilled with an electric piano right at the end. Maybe I should have spent a bit more time exploring that theme. Too late now. Anyway, it is just a bit of nostalgic fun. Hope you enjoy LYRICS Baby has always been on mind Even when I was being unkind Should I live or should I die Can never say girl I didn't try...
