"Only A Northern Song" (Home-Recording)

If you cover the Beatles, why not try a really obscure song and Sgt. Pepper outtake? And then make it even more obscure? One sunny afternoon in March 2008, I did just that - with a doctored drum-machine beat, and recording different musical overdubs without listening to the other ones previously put on tape (they come out surprisingly in synch!!). The cherries on the LSD cake are the shimmering voice effect and the alien backing vocals.

"If you're listening to this song
You may think the chords are going wrong
But they're not
He just wrote it like that"
