Tinekaamos: The John Key is a Donkey Project

Right, then.

Here is the first installment in the John Key is a Donkey project by Tinekaamos. The song is available on the new tinekaamos myspace page.

The basic gist of the project, at least in its present form: a selection of songs, in different styles, all entitled John Key is a Donkey. The purpose is to raise awareness of John Key´s donkeyness (or giant assness, if you prefer).

First up, we have John Key is a Donkey: Punk mix. This was recorded the day after the election in which the donkey, John Key, was elected Prime Minister of New Zealand. While this was a proud day for asses everywhere, with each passing day it is proving a greater tragedy for us humans.

Each track was recorded in one take; ie each successive layer was improvised over the rest. It is Punk As. (If I would redo anything it would be the vocals, but the improv angle is kinda neat.) Actually, having listened to it a bunch while mixing it, I can say it´s genuinely cool to listen to a bunch, and has got stuck in my head in weird ways.

But yeah. This is the raw reaction to the election of John Key, Donkey. And where the John Key is a Donkey project begins.

    To be honest, I´d rather be positive. This bashing lark is too easy. That said, there´s a few more John Key is a Donkey tracks already recorded… hopefully it is a fun way to vent some shit and then move on.
