Hello all and happy Friday the 13th (not that I believe that shit. Great movie saga though.)! On yet another winterless, 80-something degree, balmy LA day (I am an advocate of winter, so this makes me VERY grumpy), I thought it would be nice to throw out into the ether my cover of The Carpenter’s cover of The Beatles TICKET TO RIDE (yes, I know – never like me to make it simple) for you to hopefully enjoy today and this Valentine’s Day (not that I’m into that shit either). I performed this at the last few ISM gigs and also created a video of it last year with Maf in preparation for our UK debut at The Purcell Room in London.

Despite my feelings towards Valentine’s Day and hot weather, here is my tender-loving cover for your ears. Download, share, all that fine stuff.
And the video is here is you haven’t seen it yet, quite different from my recorded version:
Both were created using Dave Spiers’ ARP 2600 in the Screeching Barn in Wales last year. I then brought the files home to LA and recorded the vocal & vocoded parts. Everything else is the ARP! I was so excited to finally use one of these beauties in my work and still long desperately and woefully to own one. Ahh, I have finally figured out the true meaning of Valentine’s Day!
Till next time…
