Football Week, Part 4: Red Eye

Today’s entry is noteworthy for one big thing: This is the song that started The Football Project. In September of 2003, I was watching the first week of the new Football season. The first half of the game on TV was a lot of fun, but I got bored during the second half. So, in an effort to combat this boredom, I grabbed my trusty 5-string bass and started noodling around while the game kept playing. The rest, as they say, is history.

Production, mixing, all instruments by me. From The Football Project. Recorded on a 4-track at SUNY Purchase in 2003. Instrumentation note: This tune’s setup is two basses, guitar, and percussion.
