Album 2: Hatful of Hollow
Track 16: Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want
This is the last track on Hatful of Hollow before we move on to Meat is Murder. Two albums down! (Only 50-ish songs to go- is that all?) This is one of my favorite songs and I'm not sure what possessed me to put vocoder on it but it just seemed like the right thing to do. It seemed like it would fit nicely. You be the judge.
Ever since Jose Maldonado of The Sweet and Tender Hooligans asked me to join them at Morrissey's Unhappy Birthday concerts, I have taken a break the last few weeks to prepare for my first live performances with this music. I will be doing "live looping" which basically means I start by recording one voice, then add layer upon layer to it to create the "instrumental" for me to sing over. I have a 4 track looper which gives me the ability to be simultaneously recording, mixing, and performing. Figuring out what to sing, when, and on what track, is a lot like a 3D game of chess. I'm excited to play my arrangements for everyone and I hope to see you all there!

Incidentally, God, Goddess, Morrissey, Satan, Santa, or who ever else is listening- Please PLEASE please let me sing my way out of my day job some day. That is what I want. (I may be your average mom who creates databases and pulls weeds like anyone else but I can dream, can't I?)
