Seven Minute Armada

Key 34


from Bite Me


This is lterally my favourite track on the album. My first idea was to create a groove based on the drum loop fro Paid in Full by Eric B & Rakim (which of course was sampled from somewhere else. Eventually it became this jazzy sounding shuffle with a funky bassline that I was really happy with.

The second chords phrasing of the main hook was later reused on my Perpetual Emotion Machine track Nirasha.

The song features a tone-poem entitled Mindgames recited by me and written by my sister (who also later wrote the lyrics to Where Are You under the Perpetual Emotion Machine banner).

The title of the song was the result of a dream. I didn’t remember anything about the dream when I woke up except for that phrase. It was nonsensical to me, but I decided it would be the title to the next song I completed regardless of what it was.

A 2000 experiment to revive the song in a new style. It was never completed to my satisfaction and remains unpublished.
