Nice one guys, I love the singing and Geirs wild and whacky guitar is just ... well... wild and whacky!

It's a great tribute to Ted. And to Donald Duck. Who'd have thought he was a hidden member!

Flipping brilliliant in every way.  What a way to celebrate the site being back.  This is exactly what i love about this site.  Songs like this.  I too loved Teds original song.  And this treatment is just so wonderful.  Your "drums" sound really good to me, very organic and real sounding, very great job for just tapping on keys like that, I am shocked they sound as good as they do, I'll have to try that someday.  A wild ride through a slightly cracked landscape of the soul.  I love it.  It is cracked enough and sane enough and wild enough to be what it is, brilliant.  Absolutely great job ORH and Geir.  How do you like it Ted?

How do you like it Ted?

I'm honored.  ORH gave me sneak previews while it was in progress over the weekend.  I love it!

I wrote about the history of the song here:

When we were in high school, "dechromium cob" was our code word for how some of the weightlifters walked. We got it second hand from a Frank Zappa song

I've already shared this with all of my old bandmates, to rave reviews.

BTW: The very original recording of this song was quite drunken as well.  Thanks for honoring the tradition.

In 1979, it was five underage guys in Phoenix on cheap wine. Only one of us sort of played an instrument--and that person wasn't me.  I'd only written the first verse, and I just sang it over and over again.  My friends screamed along and interjected ridiculous comments.  A band was born.

BRILLIANT. This is one of my all time faves on the site, I had a mad thought about doing this and gave up straight away, I had no idea how to do the original justice. Well, it appears if you take one measure of ORH, a twist of Geir, shake well with utter madness and garnish with a duck then you have a big serving of magic. Absolutely wonderful!

Ted, I still think the original is totally brilliant as well. Two servings of magic!

Cheers,

Nigel
