DAD BAND Montage | The Music of Harvey Beaks

July 25, 2015 - One of my favorite subversive things to do as a composer on a television show  that reaches millions of children all around the world is to include stylistic musical homages to my favorite artists. I consider it a form of sonic philanthropy to pass along the wisdom of the ‘unsung’ artists that have so greatly influenced me. In the case of this weeks episode of Harvey Beaks titled “Dad Band,” I found an opportunity to create a tribute to to one of the greatest American pop/rock bands of the last 30 years: The Pixies. 

Granted, i’m not allowed to lift any phrase from a Pixies song, so what I do instead is try and think like the Pixies would. From Kim Deal’s trademark “la la la” back up vocals and her driving bass lines, to Black Francis’ unconventional chord changes on his telecaster which are overlaid by an abrasive, yet simple melodic phrase by guitarist Joey Santiago. All these elements make up the language of the Pixies and that’s what I try to decipher and re-interpret when I write in the manner of any of my musical heroes. 

I had the honor of playing banjo on stage with Black Francis on the Pixies song “Monkey Gone to Heaven” back in 2010. Now to see if I can get him to sing on an episode of Harvey Beaks! Hmm… 

tl;dr- Listen to the Pixies.

    I know that providing stylistic musical homages to musicians is one of your passion, that's why when this video was released, I know that you felt extra proud towards yourself. Well, I cannot blame you if that is the case because this is indeed something to be proud of! “Monkey Gone to Heaven” was good, and I didn't know that you were one of the brains behind it. Indeed, you deserve to be featured on https://topbritishwriters.com/essaywritingserviceuk-co-uk-review/ :)

    If we are going to talk about murals, it is a harsh reality that there are people who do not appreciate artworks like this. I feel bad, but there is less that I can do; [URL=https://vjackets.com/kingsman-eggsy-double-breasted-suit]Taron Egerton kingmans suit[/URL] I want them to realize that murals are beautiful and worth appreciating. But I simply don't know where to start. Sometimes, I think of writing as my way to influence people to appraiser things that should be appreciated. I don't know if that is going to be effective, but I want to give it a try.
