Song #329 of 9999 - Rough on Rats by Frank & Jeff

Song #329 of 9999 

Title: Rough on Rats
Artist: Frank & Jeff
Year: 2013
Album: Beck's Song Reader, Songs 1-10

I so rarely get to use the word "rollicking" to describe my music but I think we earned it with "Rough on Rats." Again, with the help of Jake Yoos on bass, we recorded bass, guitar and organ simultaneously for Beck's wordy shuffle. We decided to add a shout vocal on the chorus which adds to the raucous mob tone already established by Jeff's raspy vocal. (I am jealous.) Are there things I'd like to fix in the performance? Always. But the loose spontaneity more than makes up for it.

Only two more tracks left! Come back tomorrow!
