Vlayman w/ Grankspoine: “To Your Drummer “

To Your Drummer 
c. ’14 Vlayman Produx; derranged by Grankspoine 

She said it was time for me to go 
She said it was time for me to leave 
Well I looked you in the eye 
Because I, I just didn’t want to believe 
And you know, what you said in there 
Well it just wasn’t fair 

And they said it was some kinda abomination 
Even as they couldn’t hide their fascination 
And I looked you in the eye 
Because I, I just didn’t want to believe 
And you know, what you said in there 
Well it just wasn’t fair 

CH: . . You never gave me a chance 
You never even let me try and dance 
To your drummer 

Solo 

And I looked you in the eye 
Because I, I just didn’t want to believe 
And you know, what you said in there 
Well it just wasn’t fair

Vlayman: “Gettin’ Better (Baby) “

Gettin’ Better (Baby) 
c. ’14 Vlayman 

Baby’s getting better, she’s getting better all the time 
Ya might not know it if you ask her, but you can, see it in her eyes 

see it in her eyes 
you can see it in her eyes 
see it in her eyes 

I don’t know what to get her, gotta get her a thing 
Baby’s getting better, mebbe I’ll get her a ring 

get her a ring 
I’ll get her a ring 
mebbe I’ll get her a ring 

Baby wants to see me, she sees I’m here 
Baby wants to please me, leave with me from here 

leave with me from here 
She wants to leave with me from here 
leave with me from here 

Baby says she loves me, loves me much as she can 
Ya know I love baby, too, someday I’ll be her only man 

I’ll be her only man 
someday I’ll be her only man 
I’ll be her only man

Vlayman: “Toe Tag”

Toe Tag 
c. ’14 Vlayman 

I been lookin’ for you most of the rest of the night 
I been tryna find you, bring you back into the light 
I been lookin’ for you, to bring you back into the light 

I’m gonna, tie a toe tag on you, 
I’m gonna tie-ie-ie, a toe tag on you, 
I’m gonna tie, a toe tag on you, 
It’s true 

They sent me out there, expectin’ me to bring you home 
They left me out there, told me to do it on my own 
They left me out there, knowin’ I was sure to bring you home 

Ch

You been a sucker, losin’ all they hold dear 
You’ll never please ‘em, and you’re right to fear me

Bustout’s drum session, 3-23-14

Aiight:

Zoom R16 (before cabling) & M-Audio powered monitors & headphone amp (the paper is me explaining sound envelopes and why we need to dampen the kick; the book by the awesome Ainglish police procedural writer, Nick Oldham)


Cabled …


The warbler in the makeshift (scratch) vocal booth constructed of carpet pad on top of tires – the drums are to the right, the recorder behind the photographer


The mic’s I brought – some were even utilized!


Drum kit – the kick mic (Sennheiser E602) is all the way in about 6″ from the beater – the “vocal booth” is behind and to the right of the photographer, the recorder behind and to the left


Mic placement: 1&2 are AT4040 OH’s; 3 is EV RE320 splitting the floor toms; 4 is Sennheiser MD421II splitting the rack toms; 5 is Shure Beta58 on snare; 6 is the E602 in the kick; the other two tracks are scratch vocal and scratch (DI) guitar


My phat arse (no, that’s not a dick mic)


Why my arse is phat

Vlayman: “End (How It All Will) “

End (How It All Will)
c. ’14 Vayman Produx

In the grey morning on the first day of the month,
I heard the calling of the birds for their mates,
There was no warning on that first day of the month,
that you’d be late.

In the red morning just before the storms began,
I heard the mothers calling for the children,
There was no other warning before the storms began,
But for the light and then the wind.

In the bright morning just before sun fell down,
I heard you calling out my name,
There was no warning just before the sun fell down,
And it never will ever rise up again.

Oooh, my dear
I know just what you fear
You see what I do but you fail to comprehend
How it all will end

Vlayman: “Until I’m Late (Wait) “

Until I’m Late (Wait)
‘c. ’14 Vlayman Produx

EpiGoth-VC3Q

I know yer inna hurry to get goin’
You got a thing about you needs to move
But if it wasn’t for the things that I am knowing
You wouldn’t move along with such a groove

Don’t you wanna wait
until I’m late?
I know how you hate bein’ slow
Don’t you wanna wait
until I’m late, baby?
Wait for me before ya go

Every buddy’s talkin’ ’bout how’s yer motor’s runnin’
They all see you at the starting line
We all know that you like nothin’ better’n gunnin’
But baby’s got learn to earn her time

Ch

Once there was a rabbit thought it knew where it was headed
It passed all the jackyls and the tortise and the snake
That crazy rabbit, tho’ is gonna end up deaded
‘cus she really don’t know how much more I can take

Ride the Light
c. ’14 Vlayman

_I can see you, just around the corner
_Standin’ in the light
_I been lookin’ for you,
_tryna get to adore you, all my life

Startin’ tonight, we’re gonna ride the light
Startin’ tonight, ride the light
Ride the light

_Don’t take no genius to know, somehow involved was good luck
_You hope it’s inevitable, you know,_but what the fuck
_If it was chance brought us here, well that’s alright
_Was it fate or karma, it still feels right

Vlayman: “Fretless”

Fretless
c. ’14 Vlayman

I never worry, no, not me
I never concern myself with nothin’
I never hurry, it ain’t benificial, you see
Always runnin’ round after somethin’
__

There ain’t nothin’, never bother me
I don’t get worried ’bout nothin’ at all
When I’m comin’ they never see me
Don’t care if she’s’s too short or tall

Fretless 3x

I never lose sleep, no not me
Mebbe I ain’t too deep, but it ain’t my concern
I got no possesions or people to care about, you see
I can watch this whole town burn
and remain

Fretless 3x

Some of us prefer it Jaco style
Slippin’ & slidin’ into place
Alttle vibtration
And the look on yer face
There is them, what claim to hate me
They ain’t no problem of mine
They can’t never catch up, you see
I’m already on down the line

Fretless 12x
