"...To discover some Drug wholesome & not disagreable, to be mix’d with our common Food, or Sauces, that shall render the natural Discharges of Wind from our Bodies, not only inoffensive, but agreable as Perfumes..." - Benjamin Franklin (Here's the "Letter to the Royal Academy" where the quote comes from...which definitely worth a read =).)

Below is an mp3 sample that features the Hammond M3!! The M3 straight. No Motion Sound amp on this one.

Anyhow, in September, Bradly and I got together for a practice (M2 couldn't join us). We came up with tune on the fly and then I added some words later (yep this is the first time I've posted a song where I'm singing... ugh). Before the song started Brad read the title of a compilation of Benjamin Franklin's irreverant writings... so that was recorded and inspired me to write the lyrics.

Unfortunatly, or fortunately, the recording level on the Zoom H4 was set too high and so there's a lot of distortion and clipping in this tune. So this is a good sample of a Zoom H4 overdriven (if you happened to be looking for the Zoom H4 distorting).

So here's the song with vocals:

Here's the original without vocals:

Both are pretty "farty" tunes that no amount of studio perfume can fix wouldn't you agree?... enjoy or Not!! Have a great weekend!!!
