Why Does This Happen To Me?
I think this song was written by our friend Mark Pringle, who was in a band with Larry way back before I met either of them.
What can I say about this one? I played the drums. Larry played guitar and bass and sang. And that’s all their is on this one. It’s simple but I really it because it sounds clean and natural.
Man we have some guts, letting the drums exit this one. Just nothing but the drums, raw, almost totally unprocessed even, just naked in your face, here’s the drums, even though the drummer is Aaron, who really is not a drummer. Even though this is like a 4th grader with spaghetti sticks for drumsticks, here it is. No embelishment. See I didn’t give a shit if the rhythm was simplistic or not tight. I cared about the timbre of the drums. Liked ’em and wanted to hear ’em.
It’s hilarious right now, because I’ve been reading in Larry’s Music Blog (yes he finally put some entries! go economic downturn and layoffs!) and he’s got all this profound shit to say and so do I really, eventually! But right now I just wanna listen to the fuckin song man.
Still, buy Larry’s record.
