I’m a sucker for old school riff based guitaring and this first song has its roots firmly planted in the Deep Purple/Led Zeppelin style. When I was a kid at school, a friend invited me hear a record he had bought that day.
I distinctly remember seeing the green and yellow HARVEST label as he placed it carefully on the turntable. The track he played me was ‘SPEED KING’ by Deep Purple and my life changed from that moment on. I blame you Mr Blackmore.
The lyrics are about all the thoughtless people who seem to have no sense of social boundaries and seem to love the sound of their own voices carping on vociferously about things they know very little about. Especially when I’m working. Grr!
Ok, maybe I just shot myself in the foot with that explanation. Maybe it’s about me after all?
Anyway, this track has me on vocals (have mercy on your souls).
