This is another of the "space" rock pieces......

Once again this collab was graced with the fine talents of Steve, J, Stoney and Mike. They all put in wonderful performances but then thats no surprise ::). However, I would like to specially thank Mike for his support and wonderful guitar sonics. He believed in the song more than I did, and coaxed me out of mothballing the project.

Also many thanks to Stoney for tolerating my many demands and for delivering a high quality mix. Steve sang like an interstellar entity and J provided super layered keys for the soundscape.

I realise the song concept was quite ambitious and I hope we pulled it off. Any shortcomings are mine entirely. I am lucky and privileged to be able to work with you guys.

Thank you.
Andy

Personnel:

Mike Woodford: Army of guitars, solos
Jay Schankman: Layers of keyboards, organ
Steve MacAndrew: The voice the entity
Ian Burrage: Big Bang drums, production
Andy Gupta: Lyrics/music, bass

Brilliant is the word. some really great chemistry evident here.. this is the type of music I would have gladly paid my busboy tip money for when I was a teen. What a kickass new band is what I would have been telling everyone. I'd even camp out overnight just to catch the ticket booth open in the morning to get prime seats. That's how much I enjoy this piece. Brilliant and... cool  8)

Great job gentlemen. Onward!

hey J,

Many thanks for the kind comment. I know you love space prog rock, so I am glad that you approve and enjoyed playing a major part in the song.

Thank you for that. Look forward to many more!

Hey Jay,

You are always kind. Im thrilled you liked the song. I guess a few years of not playing in a band helps to stock pile a few songs. MCS gives me the opportunity to realize them into real songs with the help of some very talented musicians and singers.

Cheers
