This is my first tribute to Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band. I say first because it's somewhat likely that I'll do another one.
This song distills my feelings about Hurricane Sandy into a Magic Band-style instrumental.
Going for that Shiny Beast/Doc At The Radar Station sound with the Moog bass.
So my Magic Band consists of:
Moot Booxlé- Guitar (right channel)
Moot Booxlé- Glass-Finger Guitar (left channel)
Moot Booxlé- Synthesizers.com
Modular Synth Bass
Moot Booxlé- Drums
Moot Booxlé- Marimba
The guitar is a Musicvox Spaceranger. It was plugged into an Epiphone Valve Junior (modified) amp.
The drums are Rogers XP-8 from 1978.
The marimba is the only fake instrument here. It's played on a MIDI keyboard. The sound source is Logic EXS24.
Composed, Arranged, Performed, Produced, and Engineered by Moot Booxlé, November 1, 2012.
Recorded and Mixed on a Mac using Logic Pro.
Mastered on a PC using Adobe Audition.
(Dig my gaudy 90s style album art!)
TO THE MANY MAGIC BAND PLAYERS: Thank you, thank you, thank you for your contribution to the world of music. It has enriched my life in more ways than I can count.
God Bless You!
