The Ballad Of Graham The Caveman

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

My last-minute final submission to FAWM… largely recorded around 1am last night, so to stay on good terms with my neighbours I didn’t “rock out” quite as much as I could have done.

This actually had its genesis at the very start of last month, when Mike Skliar’s opening song Listen To Fools managed to dislodge this long-forgotten idea from my subconscious. From there it took on a life of its own, eventually to become the mini-rock-opera you see here.

Personally I’m amazed at how decisively I managed to sail past the writers block that usually kicks in on my songs at around the 2:30 mark. Five and a half minutes?! I’ve had dentist appointments shorter than that…
