Jimi Tenor & Kabu Kabu: Joystone
Track by track with Jimi Tenor
1. Anywhere, Anytime
A cool thing about this track is that Didier was still setting up
the mikes when we were already recording. That´s why the drum
overhead channel opens up all of a sudden during vocals. I think
we were jamming something along the lines of "Sunrise",
but Ilkka hadn´t heard Sunrise yet so he chose different chords
2. Green Grass
This must be the most arranged track on the whole album. It´s
latin but it´s not.
3. I Wanna Hook Up with You
One of those tracks we were just jamming in the studio. Later I
added some stuff , like the vocals. Me and Nicole like songs that
have the word "tonight" in them. I guess it´s a
reminder of that we were teenagers in the 80´s.
4. Hot Baby
Who is that hot baby moaning at the b-part? It must be a secret
because even I don´t know who it is! Better that way, let
you imagination free!
5. Bedroom Eyes
Very traditional song here. Is it disco? A wicked bari sax solo
by Timo Lassy
6. Hermetic Man
My love for long melodies is now official. Been listening a lot
of fusion lately.
7. Love Is the Only God
Half of the band counts in 4 and half in 6 in this song. I belong
to the 6 club
Wasn´t originally instrumental. Now is. Better like that.
Didier´s echoes are great for this track here.
10. Horror Water
One of my favorite tracks on this album. Life is great but unexplainable.
I am an old hippie, but who cares. This is a nature song. It should
be the last song played in night clubs that are open until late.
Should work in Ibiza in the morning.
Nicholas singing. He also plays a big garbage can he found from
the corridor. Amazing. I taped some keys down in my farfisa and
messed with the volume pedal and played some flute. Famson starts
the track off with the log-o-phone, that I carved out of wood with
- buy CD or LP. Now also available digitally!
