It's cold outside And the paint's peeling off of my walls There's a man outside In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette Now the light fades out And I'm wondering what I'm doing in a room like this There's a knock on the door And just for a second I thought I remembered you So I open the door It's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway "Please sit down" A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed You know I hate to ask But, are 'friends' electric? Mine's broke down And now I've no one to love



Knocked this Gary Numan cover out for fun while working on my new record (which doesn't sound like this.)

25% CPU usage. Happy Friday. Listen to Continental Shelf.


released May 21, 2021

"Are 'Friends' Electric?" originally written by Gary Numan
inspired by Nicky Flowers-class synthpop
and a short exchange in the Tuning Fork Discord

barely mixed, barely mastered, barely released
