Nigel was on another one when he wrote this one, mate. Cheers, bruv.

Looking for feedback on

Rog, let me know what you think about the demo. Do you think the lads will like the lyrics? P.S. Don't tell Arthur I shagged Susan or he'll quit the band.

Nigel, excellent work as usual! This reminds me of how fun it can be to listen to punk rock stripped down to an acoustic guitar and a good vocal. Plus, I’ll take those breakdown harmonies and the extra juicy “wondahhh, hungahhh, thundaaah” anytime anywhere. Super fun track, well done!

Love this, lmao. I know you’re doing a character here, but it’s totally authentic and totally Joe Froeber.

I lol’d at this. i love how it kind of transitioned from this sketch to a jack black type experience to a solid song.

“The subtler genius found in Nigel’s works is his ability to echo fractal meaning from the core messages of his pieces, often in conspicuous yet easily missed places. Take for example the title – ‘Center of the Earth (this place makes me hunger [for you]).’

Through use of nested parentheticals, Nigel intimates a journey to the heart of something, ushering the listener to that center before they’ve even pressed play. It’s brilliance like this that makes me want to ditch my trousers, lash myself to the mast, and howl to the Easter gods of boogie.”

— Gordon Gottfried, NME, 1968

Arthur is a fuckin bellend, mate. Let’s find a new singer.

alechutson February 27, 2023 12:42pm

Arthur already knows, mate. Better play it cool.

This is feckin glorious. The major change at -1:11 is wonderfully dramatic. Also really love the narrative framing of the drone.
