FROM A BEACH!

edited December 2010 in Animal Tracks
[youtube] just a damn fine song and it'll never truly get its due because it never made the cut! ... which is baffling really! ... on the plus side, like bonfire [of the vampires!] the live version is so well-recorded and fully-formed that it might as well be already a studio version! i just really dig this song! sucha nice vibe... and the little sounds remind me of picking up hearts in zelder! and when the chorus starts there is just the PERFECT effect on avey's voice... that trippy stuttery THING... gah! i love it so munch! fall be kind was sucha killer EP and i guess adding in a 6th song would have made it a bit too long [already it was more in MINI ALBUM terror tory!] and it def. would have been a bit too out of place on MPP i also find it fun to think about the idear of B-sides... and that if you didn't count EP tracks as true blue b-sides AND didn't include live or remixes... then all yr left with is BABY DAY, MUST BEE TREEMAN [MUFFINS] / FICKO SYKO, & SAFER just those 4 tracks alone are pretty crazy to consider in terms of variety and quality! then you throw in just how criminally under-talked about some of the Crack Box songs are AND stuff like Tuvin, Sponge Fluke, Playpen ... it's just mind-boggling! i LOVE it when bands have killer cast-offs and rares

  • Wow I love this. Never heard it before, but it's such a great song. The stuttery effect is perfect. (This is why I want that cassette of unreleased songs that comes with the keep shoes...amazing rare AC music.) Thanks for sharing! (:
  • awesome song, i've heard it before but haven't listened in a whlie. I love all of the unreleased AC and I love any band that does that. Ween has mountains of it too.

  • I don't like monetized signatures.
  • he's one of those FAKE PEOPLE! ... where they pretend to say comments that quasi-relate... but are secretly (and out in the open!) just IN IT FOR THE MONKEY!
  • He can have your monkey but he can't have mine.
  • like digital waves of an electronic ocean crashing onto a virtual beach!
  • is it my fault? I think Blendtec does those funny blender videos on youtube where they blend just about anything in their blenders and I put a video of one of those up in the most entertaining thread ever so I probably attracted him. Those videos are pretty entertaining though.
  • This is such an awesome song. The Doggy/Hey Light recording from the same BBC sessions is amazing as well.
  • I agree, Derek.
  • he came from a beach... and ended up on a highway!
  • where WILL pumpkin end up next? what fun fruit roll-ups will he growl out with in regards to necks!

    I think they should have released it as a b-side to one of the MPP singles, because none of those songs had b-sides, just boring remixes. It would have also been great if they had a rabbit/covered in frogs single, instead of baby day, or maybe both, like the grass single had 3 songs! I wrote something on CA about this as well. Slippi/Ice Cream Factory would have also been great, they go really well together.
  • what was from a beach from? was it a song created for mpp but it didnt make it? It sounds too different to be from the mpp era
  • ^ thats why it didnt make it onto the album. It is from the MPP era. I think they also said something about not being able to nail it in the studio.

  • ahh thanks, that makes sense. I just cant imagine that song on mpp, unless it came after in the flowers and was a bit darker. A great song none the less.
  • from a bitch! :(|)
