Hello there you there and welcome back to Vertical Learning Curve! Here is the final track from Vertical Learning Curve: Vertical Learning Curve. Vertical Learning Curve is the 20th song on this, our fourth album, Vertical Learning Curve. Now that I have recorded the 20th song (Vertical Learning Curve) I consider the demo album (Vertical Learning Curve) to be finished, because 20 songs is enough for an album (Vertical Learning Curve) and B-Sides (not Vertical Learning Curve, which would have to be the title track of the album (Vertical Learning Curve), and too good (at least I think so) to be a B-Side).)?

The middle (i.e. fast bit) of this song sounds empty in comparison with the end and start which is because it is, which is because I couldn't think of any overdubs. But if I could think of any, they would be fast and crashing and loud and indie, but that is really more Kieran's job to think about. The mid of the middle (i.e. the slow bit of the fast bit) should be builldy and have lovely backing vocals, a bit like what is already on here, only slightly less like a duck in a traffic jam. That is to say, less honky. The start and the end (i.e. the slow bits) should be dreamy, like how they are now but with beautiful electric guitars, very melodic bass, more drones and e-bows and nice cymbaly snarey drums. This would be a good song!

Now that Vertical Learning Curve is finished it is time to go back to Songs From A Toxic Box (the demo album, not the demo song) and get that up to 20 songs. There were ones that I wrote for it but never recorded and ones that I started for it but never finished. After that, it is time to get cracking on our fifth album which, I can exclusively reveal, will be called Cannibal Anarchy. The first song off it is called: Will the Doors Still Hold With all the Zombies Out There. The Zombies are metaphors, but I have been watching ALOT of Walking Dead recently. Does it get better?

Peace out. CTA. xxx
