Animal House Animal House by Dark Company. Album: Signmaker Download: https://wudrecords.bandcamp.com/track/future-sadness-past Lyrics by P. Greatorex. Music by G. Davies/P. Greatorex. Recorded, mixed and produced by George Davies at Silent Running Studios Exeter, Autumn 1991. Remastered at Wud Records Studios 2010. Copyright © 2010 Wud Records. Copyright ℗ 1991 D & G Music/Explicit Music. Performers: Peter Greatorex – vocals, harmonica George Davies – guitars, bass, Boss DR220A drum machine ANIMAL HOUSE I don’t truck no garden stones Ain’t got a lawn full of little old gnomes Don’t grow roses round my gate No alarm clock rings cos I sleep real late Savings and loan sharks aren’t for me Ain’t got a boat floating on the sea All I wanna do is just be me I ain’t got a number two car Ain’t even bought the first so far Watching TV I don’t get to do Ain’t got a tube in my room with a view Don’t whack balls with a little bitty stick Only drink brandy when I’m sick You can call me slow but don’t call me thick Habitat furniture ain’t got in my home Telephone table’s no good with no phone Suits and ties from the charity store I help the aged more and more First class travel means you’re keeping dry My hotel roof is a piece of sky And it ain’t no good to ask me why And it ain’t no good to ask me why And it ain’t no good to ask me why And it ain’t no good to ask me why Fun Facts: This song is in the key of E. In order to produce the ‘banjo’ effect, George tied a soft cloth around the strings of Nicodemus and pushed the cloth right up to the bridge to kill all the sustain. Don Wills played a track of slide guitar that was not used in the final mix. The slide guitar track that was used was recorded on Marcus’s Arbiter guitar which had a particularly high action. This instrument was tuned to an open D major chord. All the guitars were plugged straight into the desk. Originally this song was going to be an Alien Heat song but the band never managed to get around to making any music to go with the lyrics. The main riff in the intro is stolen from a song that George wrote about a girlfriend who caused him disgruntlement. In order to squeeze all the drum beats that were needed into this song, the drum machine had to be run at 214BPM, although the true tempo is probably 107BPM.
