A rejected Carphone Warehouse advert given a second chance at life
Love it. I'm a singer songwriter, I have a loop pedal :)
I remember hanging out with you when you were making the ad! Had a go at the drum section and everything. It's still a HIT
It’s always very interesting to hear the evolution of a song, album or musician. This is no exception.
Of course when I think of the carphone warehouse I mainly think of this routine from Stewart Lee: https://youtu.be/W2firijxQOo
Nice! Would be great to hear the solo version of this in D on Tell It To Me Straight Vol 2! Also what wizardry is producing the higher part that starts up around 0:23?
So brilliant to hear the DNA and hooks from the original piece surviving and evolving through the interations. Great the original work didn't go to waste and survived to be one of my favourite tracks. The guitar percussion bit (middle-8?), stylophone and real up-beat drive of I Saw Something fits just perfectly before the calm of Reeling.
Car Phone Warehouse's loss, our gain.
ToneFest, Tom McQ, Jake Morley!! Halcyon days!!
You're right Jake - they nailed it (though still think the stylophone - and yes, i remember the Christmas TV adverts for doesn't work ;-)!
Once again the first attempt through the development to the superb finished piece was great to hear about. Who needs carphone warehouse anyway?
Their loss our gain 👏🏻👏🏻😁
