Will eventually (between 1 and 100 million years) erode away footprints you may leave when strolling on Earth’s moon. Be careful where you step!
You’ve pondered, you’ve scratched your head and pored over arcane tomes in hope of enlightenment…and yet, nothing! No guide to Janga-songcraft to be found. Well here, in 5 x simple steps, it is:
Make a noise you like on something you like to make a noise on: Steve Stellar uses the dashboard of his starcruiser as a drum on long space-hops. He says it passes the time but it has also yielded up songs like “Hawking Fragment” from the forthcoming 4th album.
Repeat above – add variation if you like (Jangaleros are not that big on variation but do go with your own flow)
Sing over above – we do this involving stories of beginning, ending or just plain old songs of love affairs set amongst the stars. Example of beginning (this is where we began) below: http://jangaleros.bandcamp.com/track/wormhole-451
Record above with friends – preferably sprinkling with otherworldy lead and backing vocals – example: https://jangaleros.bandcamp.com/track/blue-world
Thank the universe for the inspiration – whether it was a cosmic ray sleeting through your brain or a chat over coffee with a friendly astronaut – all of these things can bring about a “cosmic shout”. – for as the exemplary Earthling, Ray Bradbury, said: “The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.”
1st Janga-album in a trilogy of 5 can be found on Bandcamp
