Louie Louie (Extended Remix)

Louie Louie (Extended Remix)


Since I'm on a roll with remixes this week, here's one "Doctor Dave" did for us when we recorded our "Louie Louie" cover back in the day (See 9/20/06 entry). Besides some different instrumentation, the main selling point here is the extended fade complete with trademark Pop Machine wackiness for your eye-rolling pleasure. Playing with the tape speed is fun!

And here's the original listing for those keeping score at home:

Continuing the covers, this one's good for a larf. I remember discussing the following back in the early 90's with the other Pop Machine guys whilst washing the dishes one balmy LA evening (my wife will dispute this, as she insists I NEVER washed the dishes back then).
Our mutual buddy Tommy G had jokingly observed that many Steely Dan songs started out in D minor; being the smartasses we are, this caused a mutual lightbulb to go on over our heads (this was actually the lightbulb in our front hall, which had been on the fritz). What was the most un-Steely Dan song we could think of to transpose into Becker-Fagenland? Why, the mighty "Louie Louie" of course. With the help of Dr. Dave and his magic sampler, we were on our way.
Mike, being the true musician that he is, considers this a bad joke and has voiced his displeasure on occasion. Naturally, we consider this a sign that we have succeeded in our misanthropic goals...

Al: Backup vox, keys
Sook: Lead vox
Scott: Lead vox
Dave: SFX, sampling
