Your last few have been so good. Love how the song falls apart at the end.

i didn't expect this to be instrumental, given the title's subject matter. really nice guitar work. this reminds me of the way john fahey sometimes named his tunes after an event, or suggesting a story title.

Clearance, you nailed it! The John Fahey vibe was definitely what I was going for. I just finished reading that biography of him: Dance of Death.

Barry Phipps with Spare Machine. A Buddy Holly tune. Barry Phipps (Coctails) sent me his vocal/gtr track as a practice demo for a show in which I was part of his band. We didn't end up doing this song in the set, but I used it to make this recording. Buy Barry's record (of originals) here: http://bpapparel.co/products/barry-phipps-the-town-vinyl-lp,
