In early March 2011, Gus turned up at The Shed for a sesh, and, with the recorder rolling, popped out a great version of Technology, a song he had first brought to us late in 2010.
It is a typical Gus Gus song, sharing with an open heart Gus’s feelings and emotions about his day to day life.
Most people will relate to the frustrations Gus feels about the overwhelming onslaught of new technology and the pressure to master the operating instructions !
We think this version has just the right feel, mixing up a chunky sort of rhythm with quirky fills and tongue in cheek lyrics.
Featuring Gus ( the writer ) on lead vocals and guitar, Neil on guitar and backing vocals, Chris on bass, and Pete on drums, this version is a live take, with the only add-ons being Neil’s backing vocals.
