...and "eris" gives way to "alkaline". without putting myself anywhere close to james marshall, this feels like my "voodoo chile". maybe because it's in e-flat minor (it IS the hendrix of all keys, y'know...), riffy, meaty, has fairly bold-proclaiming lyrics, and finishes with an extended solo at the end. at any rate, that's what i get out of it. i don't know, you be the judge...
a welcome mistake occurred when performing this song. when the quiet interlude happens, i play a Csus2 chord and sustain it with an electro-harmonix superego (feeding a source audio orbital modulator to keep the sustain breathing) . that then gives me the ability to play over top of it with chord inversions and then typically a somewhat-erratic tapping sequence referencing the lydian mode. i'm not sure how it happened, but i must have hit a button on my line6 dl4 that put everything i was playing into reverse. i love mistakes. now i try to replicate it every time we perform "alkaline". of course it's never the same...
"alkaline" traditionally transitions into "HSC" live, so i guess tracks 7-9 are somewhat of a suite (two suites on one album,,,imagine the odds!). the laughter you hear at the end is because we went for the pompous quintessential rock ending which was to lead from sonic chaos into "HSC". mitch so ever brilliantly decides to pause in order for he and doug to start pointing at each other in hair metal fashion (think derek smalls' audience-scanning bass movement at the end of "tonight i'm going to rock you (tonight)") as if to say "you ready? you better be prepared for what's a'comin'!". i stop to figure out exactly what's going on. thus, mitch's comment to follow: "ah...i had you!"
