Your Mileage May Vary

Your Mileage May Vary (Demo)
Your Mileage May Vary (Nu Wave Demo)

The song so nice we recorded it twice (or four times if you count the demos). The first is a "rock" version; it sounds kinda like Axl Rose fronting the Red Hot Chili Peppers gone hoedown. We also have a "new wave" version for your enjoyment, wherein I get to do my Peter Murphy imitation while the Talking Heads, Devo and XTC battle it out in the background.

What's the song about? Complacency, technology, psychology, the usual. I've already posted the demo versions, but here they are again for comparison purposes.

Al: Vox, Keys, Drums
John: Guitars
Dave: Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keys

Demos: Al

I always liked this one. I tried to gather all those disclaimers you hear on various ads, and lump them into a song. Al did a great sneering job on the vocals!
The lemmings make a nice image too. Furry, cuddly, leaping off a cliff to their death... Wait a minute, isn't that us?!

So good I put on vinyl!

Drag out that 45 and give it another spin. Vinyl has that great undefinable quality you just can't get on an iPod...
