Kim .. Don't text or call.. I now have no phone.. Went to see Abbie .. Her phone broke .. now she has mine.. So I drove home .. listening to the radio ..... That's when I heard "limelight" by Rush.. And thought of all of you .. And this project ..... ( love these lyrics) Limelight" Living on a lighted stage Approaches the unreal For those who think and feel In touch with some reality Beyond the gilded cage Cast in this unlikely role Ill-equipped to act With insufficient tact One must put up barriers To keep oneself intact [Chorus:] Living in the limelight The universal dream For those who wish to seem Those who wish to be Must put aside the alienation Get on with the fascination The real relation The underlying theme Living in a fish eye lens Caught in the camera eye I have no heart to lie I can't pretend a stranger Is a long-awaited friend All the world's indeed a stage And we are merely players Performers and portrayers Each another's audience Outside the gilded cage [Chorus]

To qualify the selection, you ARE allowed to select a famous musician. But only if it's me.

  About

Created April 14, 2016 by Mysterian


Every year me and @rolf meet up in real life to concept, write, record and finish off a 6 or 7 track concept album in just a few days. For 2016 this will take place on 20, 21, 22 April. so from about 3pm on the 20th we'll start posting up tracks - any contributions welcome, in fact we're desperate for them.

The concept this year is "famous people"... this could be anything, from a song about Albert Einstein played on a penny whistle to a 2 hour magnum opus using medieval instruments about a bloke who once lived across the street from Neil Armstrong. who knows what will come out? We've decided to take famous musicians off the table this year. Why? Well, it might show up our musicianship, for one. Also it might show up our musicianship.

How does it work? In previous years we've written tracks asking for contributions. Well, when I say we, @rolf mainly writes the music, I'm mainly in charge of recycling the beer tins and hosing down the kitchen in the mornings.

So, everyone welcome, any style considered. Message us if you're interested, or just jump right in next week!
