  • Title: King Of The Road With Annie Kruger
  • Artist: Jon Hecox
  • Duration: 00:02:08
  • Played: 92

We recorded this with one mic in a single take (not counting the other tries), an impromptu take on Roger Miller's King of the Road. We were drunk a bit on wine, and I wanted to sing something, anything, with Annie, and Rachel mentioned this song - which was perfect.

I threw out the 1/2 step down jump that's in the original, in favor of just getting it recorded in a few minutes. (at my rate of drinking, it have spiraled down over time)

Annie came up with her harmony pretty much instantly. At a certain point, Alice came around a sang a bit with us, and I think this may be that take, but it's had to tell. Like I said, it was one mic sitting in front of us and we just went all 1940's around it.

      The internet seems to always be full of people who feel too inclined at posting degrading, insulting comments - especially when it's about a song, or recording. I usually let it pass since those "people" tend to be pretty young and the internet is their outlet to say all the douchbaggery they wish.

      But, in this case, I'm not letting you pass. I looked at you profile, and listened a bit to your mid-life crisis "I've-got-the-blues... I really mean it!" sound, which is all fine and dandy. You play what you enjoy, and probably feel pretty rewarded after recording those songs, and then posting them on Uvumi. That's good - I'm happy for you. Personally, I could go into all the details of it's mediocrity, but I don't because, I'm an adult who enjoys music, and I love others who create it. Whether it curdles my own ears a bit when I first hear it, or not, it doesn't matter.

      So, please, for the sake of other musicians and artists who are just trying to get along and continue to create music - fuck it be good, bad, or drenched in mediocrity, please refrain from posting such juvenile responses, no matter how much you think the original composer might be "screaming from down under".
