Teenage Kicks

 

My son played a One Direction song that sampled the excellent Teenage Kicks song by the Undertones. A track I loved at the time. That brought me to sample some of the guitar parts of the original. And have fun with the original song and my brand new Samson G Track USB microphone that was sitting on my desk. All vocals are by me.

I used to do backing vocals in a band (as well as multiple keyboards, I wanted to be Jean Michel Jarre, right). So being able to layer lots of harmonics in the comfort of my own studio was a bit of a dream.

Ofcourse this is a crude result. But hey, them punks did not know more chords than there are in this song. And they had a lot of fun as well. And yes. I had to take care of my throat after this..
