In 1979, I was the bass player and singer in a new wave band called ‘Impulse’. (40 years ago. Yikes!!)
I got back in touch with the guys recently and the guitarist Richard sent me some songs digitised from the original tape masters as well as a load of photos.
Overcome by a warm feeling of nostalgia, I wrote a song about it. I started with a four bar drum loop lifted from one of the tracks. You can hear the loop right at the beginning. It’s very grainy and there is audible tape hiss :).
I put together a video which contains a montage of some of the photos as well as some FCP trickery.
The guy with the bass that looks like Lurch from the Munsters. Yeah that’s me 🙂
Three of my friends from the local folk club agreed to appear in it doing “backing vocals” (all shot pre-Covid)
