FIVE NINTH


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
The Infinites and Five Extra Arms met face to face for the first time in late April of 2007. It was thrilling to meet an entity that you only know through emailing GB files back and forth.

Jim told his version of that day in his 5 Ninth Meltdown, Now I'm telling the rest of the story, the true version, exaggerated.

Oh, and I must confess, when the chorus kicks in, I was playing this cool riff on the synth and I realized (way too late to change it) that it was about a 7 second ripoff of an Ultravox riff. Any Ultravox fans out there? Please realize this 7 second nod is out of pure respect.

Vic Holman taught me everything I know on guitar.

Lyrics
AND SO THE DAY HAD COME
WHEN THE BOYS WOULD MEET
AND I HEARD JIM SAY
HE WAS “PACKIN’ HEAT”
SO I LOST MY COOL
AND I PUT ON MY FEET
AT THE CORNER OF NINTH AND
LITTLE WEST 12TH STREET

AND WHEN THE MAN ARRIVED
HE WAS WEARING A KILT
HIS LOVELY WIFE IN HAND
DOING JUST WHAT HE WILT
I SAW HIS SMILE FOR MILES
SHAKING MY EXTRA ARMS
HE DIDN’T WASTE NO TIME
TURNING ON HIS EXTRA CHARMS

FIVE NINTH

THE MURPHY’S WERE THERE
THE MURPHYS WERE THERE
THE MURPHY’S WERE THERE
THE MURPHYS WERE THERE
THE MURPHY’S WERE THERE
THE MURPHYS WERE THERE
THE MURPHY’S WERE THERE
THE MURPHYS WERE THERE
THE MURPHY’S WERE THERE
THE MURPHYS WERE THERE
THE MURPHY’S WERE THERE
THE MURPHYS WERE THERE

WE PUSHED OUR WAY INTO THE CROWD
THE PLACE IT SOON BECAME TOO LOUD
WE LAUGHED, “I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S TRUE”
THEN WE DID WHAT ROCK STARS DO
WE PLAYED A SET THAT ROCKED THE SCENE
AND ALL THE PARTS - IN BETWEEN
THE TENDER BAR WAS SO AMUSED
OR WAS HE DRUNK OR JUST CONFUSED?

FIVE NINTH

POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB
POUR ME IN A YELLOW CAB
POOR ME, IN A YELLOW CAB

Spot on!
Let's start in reverse - the beautifully crafted shambolic ending is EXACTLY how it was! It capures the state of play as all those arms were last seen clambering aboard a yellow cab heading uptown (supposed to be the airport, so I guess towards a tunnel?)

Rock in the alternative its is. And so were we. And SO ARE WE!!!!

Love the "tender bar" line...! He was indeed confused by our set.

Great stuff, big guy - instant fave & DL.

Later!

(PS - what about those Skank Bros? Rockin' or what?)

Blue guitar pick
Love the line about the blue guitar chip on the floor(think everyone could relate to that).
Love your freaky lyrics, man. Love your style.
What is Dr. Rhythym Drum Beat and why don't you use loops from GB or the extention packs(if you need better ones)?

I think I could stand a chance.... Just because I can't sing and I can't play guitar and I really don't know doody about mixing. I just love it! How else would I spend my Tuesday nights? Painting? (I probably should).

Oh well, at least I'll never receive any death threats from those at the top, but then there's always Mister Mustard Seed.

Oh yeah, DR Rhythym - I was a master at programming songs for all my songs on my tiny machine. I recorded about 30 cassettes of horrible songs and the other night I was looking through to find a lyric I had written a lifetime ago and that's when I found the unusable tracks that I used here and in YOU DON'T WANT ME... Unfortunately, I spent too much time trying to degarble the drum track and remove a guitar track from it. Next time I'll use a large magnet.

Everything else was perfect for me so I played a new bassline and dropped another guitar track on top, some amazing vocals as you mentioned earlier and my signature synthesizer tracks to make it even more mud-like.

I can't wait to figure out a way to use the drum loops in a faster and more effective way. It sounds amazing when I find what I want, but who has the time to search for a drum track? Maybe I'll find another Dr Rhythym on ebay and plug it directly into the computer for a cleaner sound? Yeah right.

Thsnks for listening guys. It means the world to me that you voted for me.

lavalamp said 3832 days ago (May 24th, 2007)
Hey, just a tip
When using the loops from GB, I first decide on the right tempo for the song with a drum machine on my piano keyboard. Then I limit myself to the ones available on GB(this reduces the options). So, let's say I choose tempo 120, that leaves me with 20-40 options, not 250, and that makes life easier and recording faster. Sometimes, I think of it as if I'm playing with a really good drummer with limitations. Then I add some fills later.
Does this make any sense to you?
Just a tip.

You do realize I mean the way you end the piece and not the fact of its ending, right? Everytime I say I like an ending to something, people giggle and think I'm insulting someone, but I'm not. I was not happy to see the song had ended. I just meant I like the crazy ending/meltdown/chaos last section....oy. I hope I'm not in trouble.

Agree with dick on this, this has a real pub rock feel to, really rockin' and kinda punk rock. This sounds like a song about being drunk written when you were drunk .... I love how this falls apart at the end. poor you, Bob! You guys'll have to meet up more often, as you seem to be inspiring a lot of songs between you1

Jim just happened to be the lucky soul that met me first, so don't get too comfy with your windows open, I might show up one day to "inspire" you too.

Love the energy of this song... that reckless guitar and the singing=very cool. I wish I could hear the drums better; a loud, cracking pulse of a beat would really nail down the song and double the rockingness. I really like when I see lyric lines like "Doing just what he wilt". Cool song!

Reckless Guitar vs Drums
I promise that I will not use any more ridiculous drum tracks that are buried beneath a few layers of other instruments that have been piled up on old cassettes. I like my Tascam as the mixing board for all my instruments going into the computer. I should just try to use drum loops and get over it. The learning curve can't be that hard, can it?

I like the drum machine in Reason. It makes so much sense to me. Any other machines/software solutions like that where you can see the entire measure and place your hits on the 5 and 12, etc...?

Thanks for your comments, PV - If you weren't so busy, you'd be my drum bitch.

Oh great, you do me too much honor, quasoctopoid, hahaha! No, using drum loops is all way easy and stuff. Reason has a pretty good interface for making your own beats, so does GB if you don't mind using the pencil tool. Other than that, I dunno... I use loops!

Songwriting
i subscribe to this point of view and i hate the visual pollution with careless taken digital pics, too. otherwise i have to say, that digital cameras are great for spontaniously experimenting with the media (photography) and they help talented people (without a professional education) easily to express themselves or to delevlop visual ideas. I think, same is true of making music ...

Night Out
I've always loved the punk sound of the late 70's. This song was true to a better time for me. A time where my heart was in tact.

How was I to know that 6 or 7 years later it would be 1992 and I'd be nursing this broken heart for the next 11 years!!!!

It was bad enough that you wrote songs that revealed the raw angst from which I suffer, now you're in on it with Braveheart.

To top it off with a big old "How do you do?". Deanna Sue got my Dr. Rhythym in the divorce.

Anyway, I like your stuff at any rate! Have you heard someone who actually really can't play the guitar? I think you can play man. Sounds like you do a fair job at mixing and your singing isn't to shabby either. I think I'm gonna like this place.

Chips VS Picks
Oh man, I ate the blue pick off the floor and left the chips on the mic. What an idiot!

By the way, my mother was the drummer for flock of seagulls and my dad was Johnnie Ramone (I got his height, creamy, pastey green complexion and cat like poses). Fugazi? When I was born, my father was sitting in the waiting room. Does that count?

Thanks ego. I really hoped you'd like this song as it got rather noisey at the end and YOU are one of the noisiest guys I know besides Thurston Moore, in fact, you are the Thurston Moore of Mac Jams, and I mean that.

Oh Vienna...
I guess I'm not an UV fan, because I didn't recognize the lick. Your synth sounds good, a nice cutting sound for such a guitar-driven mix.

On the whole this is a good sounding mix. The treatment of vocals and guitars is excellent.

What I'm missing is some bass. Until the end, there is essentially no low frequency content.

five_extra_arms said 3830 days ago (May 26th, 2007)
Oh Vienna
It took me about an hour to figure out which lead snippet I had unintentionally assimilated. It's from Sleepwalk. I sat there singing or humming and couldn't remember the words and couldn't get to my vinyl soon enough to find it. It was an honest mistake - I actually was editing my original synth lead with the pencil tool when I heard a familiar riff.

I continue to experiment with synth sounds combined with distorted guitars or banjos. I haven't gotten tired of it yet, and I hope you don't either.

I also noticed my smoking bass line is invisible in this mix. Thank you so much for the valuable feedback.

Great balls of driving guitar -
I hear some west coast eighties vibe going on here - a little Jello Biafra/Oingo Boingo thing (sorry bout the Oingo Boingo ref - but hey). Wish the drums came more forward - but when the kit's not miced and the guitar's on 11 - shit happens. Nice tune.

Thanks for comparison to those west coast boys. I thought for sure I was as east coast punk as you could get, but I guess I am kinda sensitive, so I can see the Jello/Elfman reference.

Well, I better have another latte and get back to the new soundtrack I'm working on for Disney. Ever since my challenging work on Spiderman 2, I find it hard to be so punk.

holy mither!
that was quite a ride - i heard all 5 of your famous arms employed. i absolutely LOVE the Fine Ninth vocal - and slight change of mood - then the murphy's came on the scene - more cool touches abounded. your bizarro harmo is wonderfully good - and it's obvious there is loco weed lying about and getting into the air in your part of the country. you delivered the goods and kept ON delivering, and delivering, and delivering.... bravo! anne the elder

pick up jaw off floor
There's a unified energy that just tears out of this. Like the edgy vibe and the sound of the guitar. Cool vocals.

Rollicking
Thanks Len.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe that people can actually like my songs for what they're worth.

People like you encourage my song writing habit. I'm grateful for that encouragement.

Thanks for not running away from my music.

I don't under why there aren't more fishermen like you here at MacJams.

Song is great
and I have to say just reading your comments is almost as fun as listening to the music. You're hilarious! I mean that in a good way; not a your-a-joke-of-a-person kind of way.
