Lupus Rufus

I believe that in the future, streaming live music is going to be something that grows exponentially (up to a certain point). I’m not in a situation where I could plan to do it now, but I have it in mind and as a first tentative step I thought I would record some live songs. It’s easy enough to pick up a guitar and a microphone and record that and that’s a song, but using the loop pedal allows me to put a bit more music in than the bare bones. In the end I chickened out and dubbed the vocals over the top. Not very well either. Still it’s just a demo, that’s all.

The song is one I recorded as a demo before sometime. I haven’t listened back to it yet to see which one I prefer. It’s called lupus rufus and is dedicated to the poetry of DH Lawrence, in fact it largely consists of images and inferences from the poems. The first verse is set in Nottinghamshire, the second in West Penwith, the third in New Mexico and the last one in the Land of the Dead, or maybe that should be the River of the Dead. Ask Girflet.

By the way the track is 7 and a half minutes long.
