Seems I'm the first to congratulate you! Very very good! And my
ears didn't bleed one bit! ;) I'm listening to them right this
minute. Nice melody and nice voice you have. Excellent!
I can imagine adding some kind of brass instrument, like a
clarinet-like thingy (I suck at instrument theory).
The language really gets new depth (or reaches new heights? :) when
it's sung like this. Wow! I'm gonna have to do this too one day. I
know Sally Caves have long REAL songs like this as well. Anyone else?
(And the effect of having "Tii Raflep" followed by Breeders'
"Cannonball" cannot be underestimated. :)
Anyway, in summary I think it was great! They'll go into my
regular Winamp playlist.
Oh! I just remembered the Gamah hymn! That was you wasn't it?
That one was just hilarious! I can still hear it in my head.
