...And The Vampires Made Love. The whole scoop...


I get ask alot the 5th track on the Labor Of Love CD
"...And The Vampires Made Love."

This instrumental was written on Halloween of 2003 and done in two takes... One shot take on the left channel: Takamine acoustic nylon classical acoustic guitar. One shot take on the right channel: electric Fernandes Strat style guitar track... I recorded the acoustic guitar first until the cassette tape ran out and that was for about 11 minutes. Then I just improvised on the spot and one take all over the place with the electric guitar using the same method of time.

The Feel:
I tried to invision two vampires male and female making love and I tried not to over play too much with flash because I felt it would take away... Instead I was searching for a feel, an emotion with a coldness without any heat and with darkness and evil.

The Vision:
Candles, satin sheets, moon light shining in through French doors. Blood all over the place with bodies laying there lifeless with blood dripping into wine glasses and the two lover vampires would drink and look into each other eyes ever soo madly in love for eternity... And the Vampire Made Love through the night on a ever soo foggy and cold October night.

The Reason:
Done and created and improvised on a 4-track cassette Tascam recorder.... (remembers those units...lol) I needed Halloween background music because I was dressed up as a vampire and passing out candy that Halloween year of 2003... One day I might released the whole 11 minute version...

I've done the song twice live and it a very hard song to recreate... It was just magical that day it was recorded and I''m glad it's was captured on tape....

Go to MySpace to download and hear it... Here's the link and I hope it works...
