The ancients have called it… Crystalmethequins.
Let me tell you of this song’s origins, for I saw it unfold with mine own eyes.
After our South by Southwest showcase concert, Astro Kid and I both found ourselves back at his apartment. Still in our stage costumes we opened our cans of Dr. B and casually sat around his bedroom. Computers were turned on, subwoofers were turned up. And so it began that we started remixing.
Nearly two months later we sat in the back of a van amongst instruments and gear on our way to play another concert, this time at a Houston anime convention. Computers were turned on, headphones were turned up. It was here that Crystalmethequins, begun so many weeks earlier, was finally completed.
After deciding that the track art would not be a hastily photoshopped image of troll Bryan Cranston, I came to someone I trusted. Richard Gung is unarguably the master, and his track art was well worth the cost he took from me in that dark alley.
The song was chosen from among its peers to open Volume 9. There it stands proudly to this day.
Kind of a shame the proper track art isn’t in the download because Bandcamp.
Also, it was hilarious when Tyler managed to convince someone that this track was rejected due to the drug reference.
Hahahaha I did? Someone believed that? Score
Also I totally was there that night they started. I was no joke working on a piece of music (hopefully to be used in the future) in Astro Kid’s living room.
