‘Pro-Gen’ – The Shamen
I love The Shamen.
Tonight, for the record, I’ve completed another track from Berwin’s new LP. The track is dubbed over Slade’s ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ and follows a similar line to the last one I recorded. The difficulty with writing lyrics over existing Christmas songs and wanting to retain lyrical references to Christmas itself means that themes become overused. I’m already running out of ideas! But I’m enjoying doing it. Anyway, the lyrics of this song are by me and I recorded it on a bassier system than the previous tracks. It has a heavier, more distorted beat and isn’t quite as ‘clean’ sounding. This will be the only track I record using this system. It’s sung by me, playing Berwin and two backing singers. It’s not bad. It’s a bit of fun and less ‘pervy sex’ oriented than the usual Situation/Berwin songs. Mind you, thinking about it…
Oh, and Berwin’s new catchphrase is ‘SHIT YER PANTS!’
