Tim Shia calls Giant things by the side of the highway my indie jazz mega-hit.
Here’s a recording of Christine and I playing it at the Tranzac. We’ve been playing it slower and slower, to the point that now we just play it once through, no solos, otherwise it’s unbearably long. Here we play it twice:[audio:http://fancydavid.com/_fancydavid/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Giant-things-by-the-side-of-the-highway.mp3|titles=Giant things by the side of the highway]
Fine print, in which I presume somebody likes this: Feel free to use as you like, as long as you don’t run afoul of the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 Canada License I’m using. Also, it’s okay to play this stuff on a gig, which is sort of commercial but understood to be cool. Otherwise, get in touch and we can work something out. If you want to use it on a record, please let me know. If you play it at a show and record it, I’d love to hear what you do with it.
