We felt it unfair trading practice to ask the singer of Nigor Mortis to also be the singer of the instrumentals, and the singer was adamant that evening , “Sorry, dude, but we don’t do no stinking instrumentals, no lyrics, no vocals, as simple as that”. He claimed he couldn’t bring his inspiration to the same songs twice. And no other singers wanted to sing the songs yet because as of yet they hadn’t become ‘hits’. And today’s singers are confused singing a song that has not yet become a hit. So we present to you a project that the vocalist walked out on. Last seen, he was stooped over a bar stool in Milano, heard muttering ominously about fatwa’s, being replaced by a computer voice box, and wanting to organize a mob of percussionists to smash all drum machines.
YOU be the singer!

Further note: This instrumental presentation is important for me because I can recall being in the U.S. Army in Hanau Germany, where the master Elvis had also been stationed, and sneaking up to the broom closet of the recreation center with a cassette copy of ROD STEWART’S ‘Tonight I’m Yours’ album and locking myself up, taking a push broom and used it as a ‘microphone’ while trying to learn how to sing like the Master Rod and both of our hero’s, Sam Cooke. Therefore with great pleasure I present to tomorrow’s singers a chance to hang out, warm up, gather the spring birds of confidence, and get their mojo rolling. Big up yourself and use these tunes to get the engine of your desire, revved up and ready to take on the entire world, with your fists balled up and waiting for the action. Don’t be shy. And feel free to sample and take, just give credit where it is due and all is well. Bless you, Sananda M !
Everything dedicated to you, all my heroes, family and to the Mrs. Maitreya. Om Mani Christum!
