My first song of the new year. Writing the lyrics was the most painful part of this one and I'm still not all that taken with them. I do like the music, though. Uses a couple of different time signatures while still remaining possible for me to play.

Instruments used included:
Hammond XM-1 organ module with H&K Rotosphere
Roland MVS-1, JV1010 sound modules
Minimoog Voyager, Waldorf pulse
Waldorf Streichfett string machine
Waldorf microWave mk1 (Rackmount PPG Wave)
GEM RP-x piano
Alesis DM10
Manikin Memotron
Steinberger Spirit bass

Recording was done on a TASCAM TSR-8 for the vocals, bass and reverse cymbals. These were then dubbed onto an Otari MX80 2" 24-track recorder. Mixing was done to 1/4"tape using a Studer A807. One razor edit was made - thank goodness for that gap in the middle.

They call him the Big Bad Wolf, he's the baddest guy around
If you're looking for trouble, sonny, he'll knock you to the ground

Crawling in slowly, under the darkness
He crept on forwards all clad in jet black
He hadn't noticed the shadow behind him
Watching and waiting to thwart his attack
Aiming his crossbow, before he could fire
The muscular figure had pounced on his back

They call him the Big Bad Wolf, he's the baddest guy around
If you've come here for trouble, sonny, he'll knock you to the ground

They call him the Big Bad Wolf, he's the baddest guy around
If you're looking for trouble, sonny, he'll knock you to the ground

Then the assassin took out a small hand-gun
He aimed for the head of the man on his back
The hero rolled over and seized the revolver
And throttled the villain until he went slack
He took the assassin and sent him to prison
It's all a night's work for a masked wolf in black

They call me the Big Bad Wolf, I'm the baddest guy around
If you're looking for trouble, sonny, I'll knock you to the ground

(If there already is a superhero called the big bad wolf, I am not going to be pleased)
