Comments on the song:

Wow. This has been one of the longest-running remixes I've ever been

a part of. When it first started, it was just me and some funny

lyrics trying to make a ska song. I posted it up on the OCR WIP

forums in November of last year to an OVERWHELMING response to the

song, most of which was insisting of putting live brass in the song.

I originally just wanted a better singer than myself, but as a result,

the The OverClocked Plaid Muffins was formed. Forged in the mighty

brass, mixing, voices, and guitar strings of at least 8 remixers (it's

a somewhat-changing rotation of roles), this is our first song

together.

Let's start with who did what on this track, shall we?

Level 99 = Arrangement, Lyrics, Guitars, Drums

PrototypeRaptor = Brass Arrangement, Arrangement, Trombone

LuIzA = Vocals (ALL the vocals)

Swann = Trumpets

Xenon Odyssey = Tenor Saxophone

Cyril the Wolf = Alto Saxophone

AMT = Bass Guitar

Avaris = Mixing and Mastering

There was a huge effort to get this all together and as tight as

possible. Every person involved gave it everything they had. The ska

style is heavily influenced by the band Streetlight Manifesto.

The lyrics are as follows (for the clean version):

----------------------

I am eating food, sweet and tasty dishes, dude

It is loads of fun but all these calories are bad for you

Chinese, sushi please, Spanish, Thai Food, it's all good!

Shove it all in my mouth and I will give you cash

Chips and salsa, peanut butter, tenderloin and rack of lamb

Microwaving me some kettle corn and the tv dinners are being baked now

Giant burgers and burritos, deli meats and lots of cheese

Bar-be-ques and large potato salad, I'll eat everything!

I'll clear out all the buffets in every city in no time

Most grocery stores have posted "no pink marshmallow" entry signs

But let's disregard these warnings and digest every last bit

From frozen food and the bakery to snacks, sodas and chips

So let's hit up all the drive-thrus and convenience stores near here

My jaw ain't chewing something now, starvation is to be feared

Without a constant stream of eats I'll likely to just die

cause I'm Kirby, &$@#&, and I need food so GET ME $#*()@#&* FRENCH FRIES!

Deep fried cookies, monster cherries , french-fried onions from the can

Only veggies if they're soaked in oil and even then I'd rather eat raw

cream cheese

Deep dish pizza, shrimp tempura, crispy flat bread drenched in lard

I don't care if I'm to big to transport, roll me to the foods

I'll clear out all the buffets in every city in no time

Most grocery stores have posted "no pink marshmallow" entry signs

But let's disregard these warnings and digest every last bit

From frozen food and the bakery to snacks, sodas and chips

So let's hit up all the drive-thrus and convenience stores near here

My jaw ain't chewing something now, starvation is to be feared

Why hold back all you inner cravings, restraining for today

When you could eat up the whole world, this ain't no &@#$#$ gourmet!

This ain't no gourmet

This ain't no gourmet

No *$&^@!#()$ gourmet

This is a buffet!

------------------

And so that's about all I have to say for this track. Nearly the

entire song is based on or around source. Enjoy and look forward to

more from the group in the future! And make sure to check out the

dirty version on the upcoming Milkyway Wishes project!

Bad stuff out of the way first:

Some minor timing issues that are inherent with having a live horn section recording separately, and the gang vocals are crazy buried.

Now the good!

This arrangement and specifically the lyrics are amazing, the performances are pretty solid, with some nice solos, and a vocal performance with some real attitude. Luiza sounds like she could kick anyone's ass who got in the way of her plate. :-)

Production is solid, and the song is awesome. Awesome work Plaid Muffins!

It's hard not to admire the effort involved in making a song like this. In fact, it's hard to look at this from any angle besides THIS SONG IS FUN AS HELL. But since that's my job, I guess I should.

There's some mixing problems with this. The backing vocals and the electric guitar are totally buried, the soundscape is generally crowded. I think more EQ work could been done for sure. There's some timing problems too - the most noticeable is when Luiza falls behind the beat, which might be more a problem with lining things up in the production stage. I also think at moments there's too much going on, like when multiple instruments are playing melody-like passages. It gets overwhelming.

In spite of all this, I'd say this is still a pass. This is not an easy song to make and though this isn't a live recording, I think it compares in playing and production to other live recordings we have. Avaris did a good job getting instruments to show up when they needed to, and you still get the sense that a band is playing this song. Plus, Luiza pwned the vocals.

There was some call-and-answer stuff that I couldn't hear in the left channel, so maybe something's brokededs. I'll check into that, but otherwise it's awesome. Nice job with OCR's new biggest super collab EVER.

Suck it down?

YES
