Paul McCartney vs Soundhog - Take It Away - 'Rubber Dub'


Greetings, rat-fans.  So, to celebrate avoiding Xmas successfully for the 17th year running, I grabbed the first 30 seconds of Sir Paul's 1982 pop masterpiece, and attacked it with various cheap (or fairly cheap, in the scheme of things) sonic devices. These included a Korg Monotribe and Monotron Delay, a Melodica with most of the keys working, a 1970s Sansui hi-fi reverb unit and a Stylophone - an original example, of course.. not one of those iffy new ones - for as close to a live dub mixing session as I'm ever likely to indulge in.  It may not be very 'authentic' (I am after all a strawberry blonde, 41 year old garage mechanic from north Wales) but it was rather fun to do.  Hopefully it'll be fun to listen to as well.

Thank you, Soundhog for all these
mixes, if I may call them that

It's another interpretation of music that's already in existence, and if you want to work them a little and see what you can do with them, then who am I to say it's awful?

I find it to be a fresh approach to older material

I'm not as close-minded as the other people who like to downplay your efforts with negative comments

Keep up the experimentation and imagination!
