lyrics

The Merican Life.

Over the last 3 or 4 years, I’ve had the chance to meet a whole load of really inspirational creative people via the wonders of the interwebs. My first decade online was spent predominantly with bassists. The rapid acceleration of social media stuff last in the last decade lead to that pool of online friends broadening a lot.

One such creative chum is Mike Atherton. AKA Sizemore ( www.sizemore.co.uk ) He’s a writer, of pretty much anything. Lately he’s been writing TV and film stuff, including a rather fun short called Precision.

He came over for a chat (and to return my speakers that were used for the audio in the film) just after they made it, and the conversation about sci-fi and films inspired me to go and play. This is what came out. The main character in Mike’s lil film is called Merica Adams - the film has a great soundtrack by Stephen Kilpatrick, which is utterly key to the vibe of the film. A big part of the story. So, for shits and giggles (what the hell does that mean anyway? who does anything ‘for shits’ except take laxatives? would that make you giggle?) I put my ambient track under the film. And, if you start it at 2.45, it fits really well. At some point, I’ll get a copy of the film without the original music, and put it up (if they’ll let me). Til then, consider this a meditation on Merica Adams life away from the guns ‘n’ time travel :)

about

Steve Lawson UK

The UK's most celebrated solo bassist, here with lots of looped/layered solo albums, & collaborations, most notably with genius singer Lobelia. Dig in deep, there's a lot to discover.

Pretty much all the music here is 'Pay What You Think It's Worth', so listen as much as you like, & do what it says on the tin...

As the website strap-line goes, it's the soundtrack to the day you wish you'd had.
