Title: Frankie 2...
Post by: Norfolk Slim on October 04, 2015, 11:03:51 AM
A new composition.  In the polishing phase, but I played it for an audience for the first time today and it seemed to go down okay so I thought I'd get it down on a quick recording (handheld Olympus thing rather than any flash mics or anything).

As if often the case, it is the confluence of several ideas.  I was messing about with lyrics for a sing, at the same time as messing about with a raggy progression intended to be an instrumental, at the same as thinking it would be cool to do a modern day version / extension of John Hurt's Frankie.

Somehow, that melting pot resulted in this tune: Frankie & Albert for the Angry Birds generation.

On Soundcloud cos I cant get a decent sounding MP3 small enough.

Great tune!  Would love to hear that once you get it done up with good mics & co!  (The crowds shouts More! More!)

The lyrics are really spot on, and fit the melody perfectly.  Good stuff.  I'd say that was a well thought out song.  Keep up the good work.

Thanks folks.  I'm half way to thinking it needs one more verse but we'll see!
