Bop fiend Eddie Tempo left the SFPD with a bullet in his shoulder and half a pension. Picking up PI work where he can, he takes solace in the city’s jazz scene.
But in a dive bar with a killer trio and an open mic, he soon stumbles onto a conspiracy bigger than he can imagine - that could soon have the city on his knees, and everyone marching to a different beat.
What is… THE METRONOMIC SOCIETY?
Thursday nights, fall ’81, only on CBS. Starring Richard Hatch and Heather Locklear.
So: I decided that THE METRONOMIC SOCIETY was clearly an 80s TV thriller - think The Rockford Files by way of Don DeLillo.
And this is the theme tune to that imaginary TV show. It's a messy demo - my timing is out - but I remembered how to play bass, and got to have a lot of fun with the Nord. Enjoy. I've totally polluted my Soundcloud now.
Production notes: live bass, live guitar. Wurli/Rhodes/Hammond/Brass are all out of the Nord Electro. Drumming is one of Logic Pro's friendly stock of drummers. I think this is about 12 tracks of audio, and about three-four hours work.
The mix is a mess. It's a demo!
