Piece Of Crap - The Internet Singlefeaturing Kato & The POCettes
March 20, 1996 was the 27th anniversary of Neil Young's first recording session with Crazy Horse - the day that Cinnamon Girl was recorded. To mark the occasion, the members of the Rust List have released the first "Internet Single", from the Sleeps With rust@death Rust Tribute.
The song is Piece Of Crap (originally performed by Neil On the Sleeps With Angels album.
If all you want to do now is to download the song, see the bottom of this page now.
The song is performed mostly by John Kato Kitamura, who's contributed quite a few innovative interpretations of Neil's songs on the various Rust tributes. This time he does it mostly Neil's way, but with a twist: he gets help from Rusties all over the Internet world.
Those who have heard the song know that there are a number of places where "the chorus" contributes a key phrase to the song. In each of those places, Kato has brought in guest performers who have literally "mailed it in". Most of the contributions were sent to him via email, though a few were actually left on his answering machine! But it all works, and it works well, in the humble opinion of this Rusty...
Those contributers have been dubbed the The POCettes, and are, in order of appearance:
Get Yourself a Piece of Crap!The Kato & The POCettes version of Piece of Crap is a stereo PCM audio file, 8-bit sampled at 22K samples per second. It's in ".WAV" format, playable by most all multimedia-equipped workstations. The length of the song is 3:19.
The file is just under 9 Megabytes in size, so if you're behind a telephone link be prepared to wait a while for it to download!
Get it from here.
Or from here.
Or from here. (that one's gone away...)
A "Lo-Fi" non-stereo ".au" file version of it that is much smaller is available from here.
Thanx to...A big thanx to the folks who have hosted the single on their sites...
And thanx much to all of the POCettes, who took the time to contribute to this project.
