Karma64

by Chris Abbott and Alistair Bowness (Boz)

This CD is really four albums in one. First, it presents dance versions of popular C64 tunes which were first put together to be played at the very first Back in Time live event. Second, it presents what we regard as the ultimate versions of tunes which first featured on "Back in Time 1", such as Crazy Comets, or Monty on the Run. Third, it brings a new and experimental vibe to some popular pieces like Wizball and Mutants. And lastly, it is a testing ground for some of the ear-candy New Age ideas that later found their way into Crystal Dreamscapes.

Check it out...

Listening Recommendation

 Cauldron II - I am a Pumpkin Man

Arranged by trauma

What a creative and well done remix. It's really a unique interpretation of the original. The production is great, and the structure keeps it interesting. The a cappella clips work well, and the theme that comes in after the introduction drives the remix forward with a simple but enjoyable groove. I particularly like the almost distant-/muted-sounding break section from 1:22 to 1:37. The guitar effects at around 1:51 also work well to thrust the piece back into its main theme. The vocal bends at 0:22-35 and 2:24-2:37 are very reminiscent of Mike Patton. With a professional sound, a wonderfully creative direction for the source material, and an overall feel that doesn't take itself too seriously, this is (in my opinion) one of the strongest c64 remixes out there.

I couldn't find the lyrics posted anywhere (and some people seemed to be curious about them), so I had a quick couple of listens and jotted down what I could make out. They're not official of course (as I'm merely a fellow listener), and I can't guarantee their accuracy, but I think they're correct for the most part. I couldn't make out most of the a cappella vocals, nor could I discern the 'low grumbling' from 1:30-1:37. Regardless, I have included them below:


I'm a pumpkin man
I'm a pumpkin man
I'm a pumpkin man
I'm a pumpkin man

a, a
[a cappella vocals enter]
I'm a pumpkin man
a, a
I'm a pumpkin man
a, a
I'm a pumpkin man
a, a
I'm a pumpkin man

(g-good day)

[repeats in background]

Aaaaowww…
Aaaaowww…

[following two stanzas in tandem]

I'll be jumpin' you
Just like pumpkins do

I'm a pumpkin man and I'll be chosen like a pumpkin because
I'm a pumpkin man and I will jump, jump, jump-jump-jump
I'm a pumpkin, I'm a pumpkin, I'm a pumpkin, I'm a pumpkin
Jumping, Jumping, Jumping, Jumping, Jumping, Jumping, Jumping, Jumping

Aaaaowww…
Aaaaowww…

I'll be jumpin' you
Just like pumpkins do

[break section with low grumbling]

I'll be jumpin' you
Just like pumpkins do

Aaaaowww…
Aaaaowww…

I'll be jumpin' you
Just like pumpkins do

Whoooaaa…

I'm a pumpkin man
I'm a pumpkin man
I'm a motherfuckin' pumpkin man

I'm a pumpkin man

 Delta (Spanish guitar)

Arranged by Noviello Pippo

Man, if I could play guitar half as good as this, I'd be twice as happy! This is good stuff. Good for an Argentine Tango ala Delta.

It's a song of power. Get out of my way until we get shot down. Everyone will die, lose everything, but until then we sing.
