So like many musicians roughing it on the road we have to get some shut eye where ever we can. I for the last week have been sleeping next to the bar (No I haven`t been drinking myself to sleep – Everyday) in the Kobe Music venue Varit.
On one perticular evening I was having a dream I was watching You tube. The Video was Dave Grohl playing some song I seemed to belive was for some reason a really obscure Foo Fighter rarity. It was the same line over and over looping like an annoying ethereal melody line of pure ingrained catchyness. Suddenly logic hit me. *Stu`s internal monologue* “Wait a second…I`m not really a big enough Foo Fighters fan to warrent watching this video, Infact if I am watching this video then why is it just one line repeating for ages?, And where am I watching it……..”
Suddenly I awoke to find myself in the darkness of the empty music venue. The melody was still in my head and seeing as I was in a music venue I knew I could make as much noise as I liked. So out came the guitar and the annoying melody became the chorus to my new song. The rest of the song built immediatly around that and seeing as I was playing that same music venue later that night. I made sure to hammer the tune into my brian through intense rehearsals throughout the day.
The tune (working title `Varit`) was my set opener and the show was recorded to ensure I don`t forget it over time.
Although lets be honest…If I do forget; It couldn`t be that catchy could it.
