Song Rough: The Red Pill

This is a throwback to the “girl gone bad” theme of so many cheese metal songs from the 80s. The twist, though, is that the girl is not whoring it up, nor abusing illicit drugs; she has been red-pilled. Graciously, my Millennial daughter agreed to provide the progressive zeitgeist commentary.

I quite enjoyed dreaming this up. It started with a 4-bar Figure riff called “Corpse Lullaby,” and as I started taking stock of ideas for my forthcoming album, the vision for this became clear.

Writing it cured a lot of my political angst: I finally tapped into my sense of humor about my complete immunity to Trump Derangement Syndrome (I suppose I’m experiencing the new flavor of coming out). Plus, I got a chance to track with my new Epiphone Nighthawk and pound on the old electric drums.

The final mix (sans the existing blemishes, and hopefully with a rip-ass guitar solo) will be available on Consternational Anthems, right around the holidays.
