This is a song about the dangers of alcohol addiction, which a family member of mine has suffered with for some time and we wrote the lyrics together. I know hes not the best singer and he openly admits it and at least has the balls to say he can't sing (he can sing better than me any day of the week mind)...Is Maxxpump!
Don't be to harsh he really tried on this track to try and get it right. I believe he used to sing Baritone in the town choir and used to be able to sing walking in the air pitch perfect, before he hit puberty anyway. (I went to see him perform it and he blew me away!).

Maxxpump wrote this piece, I helped record the vocals for this edition and provided the lyrics. I also did quite a bit of mixing to try and process his vocal takes into something which is palatable, or may not make your ears bleed anyway! (nah joking hes a good kid and at least has the gaul to open his mouth and attempt to sing!)

He does Baritone and bass parts on the chorus, which were a bit of a swine to record as I don't have the correct equipment to adequately pick it up, maybe we will try again with a kick drum microphone and see if we can get better results. This was semi recorded in Protools and edited in Cubase on stu's system.

So without further ado I give you Maxxpump's 80's sound and my lyrics to make "choose Freedom complete"!

Before anyone bashes this, we made this a few weeks ago and its already got three hundred views on YT and got a few hundred on soundcloud, so must be doing something right?

I'm kind of scared about the general reaction about releasing this on this platform, but we will have to see what reaction we get (mainly as I hate my voice so much, it just aint cool anymore). thankyou for the dialogue thats kind, and maybe we won't get flamed to much (my hope is). It was fun, but not the kind of thing I want to do to often as that baritone singing really hurts my throat! I was really worried about people taking the mickey out of the subject. But I think it suits the song fine! I was really hoping to find a vocalist by now to do this kind of work instead of me, but this has not been forthcoming and I fear it won't happen anytime soon!
