    Ahhh...great track. So infectious. LOVE that bass line, and the tune certainly feels like a protest track. Well done, folks!

    Thanks Shaun!

    This was a very, VERY cool team to work with.

    We had:

    Mange on Vox
    Calvin on Guitars
    longhairdave on Bass
    myonlinedrummer on Drums

    qharley mixed this puppy

    AND we all owe our thanks to sanevoice for letting us play with, mangle, rip apart his song ... and put it back together with duct tape and baling wire.

    Here's the "demo" we took the song from:

    Complicated Time original


    Thanks you guys again for all the fantastic work you put into this!

    Cheers, D

    This has been quite a CAPE!

    Graffiti is Mixed in Harrison Mixbus, running on GNU Debian with a realtime kernel, and a DDX3216 as control surface.

    My very talented team mates made this time around a walk in the park. Virtually faders up mixing
    Even though real life pushed some of our members off actually tracking they were very much involved with the way this track evolved.

    Thanks to the Chicken Man for being such a great Captain. We had to go look for him, but since then he has been molding our songs with bulldog tenacity. If you like this song, it is all his fault!

    Guys, thanks for a great experience, and let's do something together again soon!

    OK, so I know who to blame for liking this. M'boyee Calvin tearing it up..

    Nice blend of old-stylee and new stylee Green Day overtones—my ex-wife would eat this right up like I did.

    Great work, y'all.

    Shades of punk in CAPE?

    Did I go to the wrong forum?

    Fucking fun song guys... Now I want to pogo and drink beer and don my Vandals shirt!

    Milo went to college, sure, you guys went to town!

    When it started I was just like "oh, groovy drums". And the verses are more chorusy than most peoples' choruses.

    3+ minutes in I was like - Wow, when did this song get so *big*?

    I'll take you guys over Green Day any time. Nice work!

    This is a hit! Sounds like one of those things that every sings along to drunk while they headbang to.

    BTW, The guitars are fucking spectacular... they sound perfect when they come in on the verses.

    Thanks Elaine and all for the comments!

    We had a serious pow-wow right out of the gate to pick a song and a genre.

    The guys voted for this tune and were pretty well unanimous on the genre - punk. Green Day was dropped as a direction a couple of times, so we went with that. I loaded GD and a bunch of others on my iPhone and saturated myself with new and classic punk for a few days.

    We were pretty darn happy with how it turned out and it's great to hear that it translated that way for others!

    "Complicated Time" is a must-have track for the mixtape that goes to the next beer-soaked party at the lake! I am a rocker and I really appreciate a solid rock tune like this and a little dose of punkrock makes it even more appreciable (is that an English word?).

    You younger peoples will not not likely remember the year when suddenly every musician you knew now had really short hair and even the princesses got nose rings and tattoos, But I do.

    This sounds like that in the best possible way. I really really enjoyed it

    Not sure if the original song was passed through a food processor or meat grinder by team Graffiti... all I know is that all mechanical devices in plain sight at the end of last weeks live show in Dusseldorf were unceremoniously destroyed, pissed on and then set on fire. Punk rocks but chaos rules!

    Dang it. Dang it. Dang it! This is the 3rd song I've listened to and I just keep loving them more and more.

    Of course, this sounds a bit like Social Distortion meets X meets The BellRays with a sprinkle of Green Day.... which of course to me is a freaking home run!

    Great job all the way around...wow.

    Frankly, I was expecting at least half of the Cape 10 songs to be punk(y). Fortunately, because of team Graffiti, Cape 10 is a success - you guys are the torch bearers! Fuck you (hocks a loogie...) it's complicated !

    Fuck you too (hocks a even bigger loogie, and plants it close to yours...) We GET complicated!

    Just you wait till you hear the song we hacked together in the last two weeks. THEN you'll GET complicated.
