T2 Does Tull Too: ‘Locomotive Breath’ by the Burnside Refugees

Filed under: Locomotive Breath — astyages @ 1:36 am


Thanks to a very warm and welcoming response to ‘Teddy Bear’, I’ve decided to post another one of the ‘goodies’ from our little (actually, it was a marathon! jam session).

This song is from one of my favorite albums of all time, Jethro Tull’s Aqualung, as performed by yours truly and my good mate, Abner on African drum; although I wouldn’t mind betting he was wishing he had his full drum-kit with him for this one!

Anyway, without further ado, here it is, Burnside Refugees, with their rendition of Jethro Tull’s ‘Locomotive Breath [click on link]:

    • Glad you like it Hung… that’s one that can go straight on the list then, eh?

      • Definitely. Good jam, I enjoyed it. I would like to revisit some of those songs we did. One in particular was in handwriting instead of type, sounded good but can’t remember the name, do you?

        • Thanks Hung! It was a great jam; fanstastic fun! Don’t worry; if you start to come to practice sessions regularly we’re bound to revisit it sometime! But I think Abner was recording most of it anyway so I’ll see what he’s got when he comes round again… Anyway, if there’s anything which sounds good enough (and I’m pretty sure there must be!) I’ll post it both here and at the Pigs Arms. In the meantime I’ll check out all the songs in my books which are handwritten rather than typed and let you know… Already looking forward to our next session! Here’s to the ‘Burnside Refugees’! Long may they rock!

          PS: I do hope you enjoy your new, personally-signed copy of ‘Cyrus’… don’t forget to recommend it to your mates!

          • Will do Hung… but give me a day or two to think about and compile it; if this is going to be our first playlist for live gigs, choosing the right songs is very important…

          • Yes, compiling a songlist is hard. I think about who the target audience will be and go from there. Do you want the audience to listen or dance or both? Or do you want to have a style like say country rock or blues etc? I never focus too much on what I like, I prefer to think about what the audience will want to hear. Lastly I look at what I play well. Just some ideas. Cheers

          • I ususally start with what I play best and narrow it down from there to whatever audience type emerges from this… Style is something I must say I don’t really give a lot of thought; to do so would be less ‘original’ than just playing what we play and seeing what ‘style’ emerges from that… I’d rather set a style than copy one… But remember, first and foremost, that playing music is about having fun and if we’re not doing that we’re not doing it right! 🙂
