I slipped the “one note only”-rule a bit. You know, for artistic reasons. The trombone felt like having it’s moment in the limelight.
And then we went all LoFi.
GHOST TRAIN twists & turns. It’s mobile and solid and just keeps on going.
At this point of writing this, I started wondering why ghosts? Why not just a normal train with steam engine, coal and lots of noise & smoke?
Well, I did watch the old Disney cartoon “Lonesome Ghosts” back then. I didn’t realise this until now.
This is how monkey brain works I guess.
So, some spooky – or spoopy – mechanical surf rock for ye.
We got names.
We got happenings, comfortable & dangerous. We got places to actually be in and places in the darkest corners of your mind. We got time.
We got colours, we got feelings and we got a condition that makes you wanna dance.
We got intentions, both good & not so.
We got numbers & we got sequels.
We got anagrams, we got word play and we got onomatopoeia.
We got memories, we got headache, we got double & triple entendres and we got something that’s quite absurd & abstract.
We got humans & we got dwarves.
Voila, now we also got GNOMES.
Coming up: Elves, orcs, dragonkin, lizardmen, pixies, skaven etc.
Now that’s a stupid title, if I’ve ever seen one!
What was I thinking?
How could I be such a fool?
I blame spring fatigue.
Happy piano is happy.
