Some shit from an old iBook: Flying into Baghdad

After the Drogues finally finished our magnum opus, No Facts That Don’t Fit, in 2005, we fell into the lamentable cliché of struggling to follow it up.

The three of us retreated to our respective lairs to work on pieces with the idea of bringing them to practice and roughing them up. That method never quite caught on, but I did end up with a few interesting GarageBand tracks, which—while totally inappropriate for a post-punk trio—have something going for them.

I had become obsessed with a Persian scale (which I have since completely forgotten) and that became the main riff to this tune. The answering bass line sounds like I was trying to channel my inner Bootsy. I have no idea what kind of music this is, or why I named it Flying into Baghdad—I think there was a lot of concern at the time that Iran was going to be dragged into the conflagration we had started there. Anyway, here’s some weird music from a weird time. Cheers.
