Description
This is a song about reclassification of Cannabis from class c to b. Sorry, I have to admit, therefore to having been a criminal, but at least I do. Not the present Home Secretary who is being questioned here, who ignored advice from the Commission that the government sanctioned not to reclassify the drug. "People who do drugs are not criminals. They may be sick, but they're not criminals." - Bill Hicks

nice
cool trippy sounds, nice guitar tones. The percussion adds a ton too. I really like the sampled newsreader thing you've added, I'm trying to add more of these kind of samples to my own work. Cool, moody piece.

ooh
I wished I lived near you. I'd be over ever chance I had just to be a fly on the wall and watch the process. Really interesting textures here. The guitar especially is wonderfully done. Rich, varied tone. The spoken audio is trippy & well placed.

hello mate
you would have to be on a few walls then. im working away from home at the moment so i take the mac with me, it gives me time to produce the track cos there are no distractions, not even the net.

No reckless indulgence, here...
...and sometimes, they're not sick and they just know how to enjoy one of life's treats to the senses and in moderation, and not unlike, one might enjoy chocolates, from time to time. Anything and anyone can be abused and it's of no fault to the substance, or person of choice....

How sweet this was to the senses and, all in good taste... Too bad you made it harder for one to go beyond, "what is moderation" by not allowing a "traveler", "for the road"...

This piece was of, museum quality - Thanks for the show! Macca

Although...
...I gave up smoking the stuff back in 1972 and DO believe it to be a harmful substance if abused (something relatively EASY to do) I have always supported---by both petition and vote---it's legalization.

I find sending folks off to prison---where they will be subjected to the worse of the worse---for simply trying to feel good, is the REAL heinous crime!

Cool tune with a sensible social message Steve!

Be well!

Class B.

In my opinion its the 'Drug Dealers' who are the criminals.
Nice production, Love the music. Very hypnotic sound.
Great guitar sound. Well done.


Peace Dee.
Macaudion said 3405 days ago (May 26th, 2008)
drug dealers...
are we talking, pharmacueticall drug dealers, processors of "bad" and "good" foods that folks abuse until at which point one has been rendered dead on arrival... No uniforms needed for this type of arrest because, it's in a coronary's jurisdiction...

Sorry, it's about the music...

Lovin' your music, Dee!

Great guitar tone!
Love your use of the e bow and the wammy bar.
So dreamy that it almost has a shoe gaze feel at parts.
I could almost hear this in a movie, kind of a cinematic quality to it.
Nice creamy guitar layers...yum.

Cannabis
Bananacis! It's all about the music. Although I would agree people who smoke Cannabis shouldn't be considered criminals especially when alcohol is a FAR more dangerous drug ruining lives, causing violence and killing thousands from liver damage every year, I think all mind altering drugs should be avoided. As the old saying goes, 'Buy art not drugs' and since music is art, I think it should apply equally. Hey, how about 'Make music not cannabis'! Bet you are giggling at that in a hazy cloud of Jamaican smoke. Lol!

As for the song. Well, as usual: BLOODY BRILLIANT!

Great track
The percussion is very effective, and the sounds washing all over this track work very well. Some beautiful guitar sounds - love that tremolo! I like the use of the woman's vocal sample - very sobering and also effective. The mix on this is terrific - pro stuff. And lovely mix, too (although a little clippy in my headphones around 3:30.) A very impressive piece. Nicely done, my friend. Peace.

Flippin' 'eck
Sooooo glad I came across this - wow - absolutely fantastic! We all tend to say nice things here at MJ's and do a lot of 'faovouriting', but his really is a favourite!!!!! Really great sounds, fantastic playing, moody, a bit threatening, mysterious, and the best bass sound I've heard for ages!. Genuinely knocked out by this track. Glad i found it -
