The Ghost Writer and his band . . . Sound and the Drum Machine
Today I have done very little because it is Christmas Eve, so I thought after managing to get a bit of drumming uploaded on to Youtube yesterday I would have another go today. But this was a much older piece of music, you see years ago before the Ghost Writer was a Ghost Writer he was just a Ghost and he made an album. It was his strange reclusive band Sound and the Drum Machine that consisted of just him because he is too grumpy to play with other people, but he discovered that musicy folk all thought they should get free stuff and in general people did not want to actually pay for their music. And bare in mind this is quite a long time ago before the days of the instant downloads to an ipod. So the Ghost Writer did something that was good but also bad, yes he decided to sell his album for £125.00 on the internet, it was good because the Ghost Writer would say to people that he has the most expensive CD in the world, and it cheered him up lots. However it was bad because no one would buy it after all the public are not entirely mad (well I don’t think so). So this is track three (chimes) from Sound and the Drum Machine’s, The Album of Dark Tales and Blues. It had a very cool looking CD and makes a brilliant coaster for your coffee
I will be taking tomorrow off so will not be posting a diary entry but I wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year and hope everyone has a good 2013, although I am sure the world is due to End in June of July if I remember rightly. . . . . ..
