Those riffs would sound better sung, though, probably.
You liked those 3 tracks? I would like to hear the others as the ones I heard didn't really grab me at all. I realise this is just a small unique side project.

I think Pretty Thing is pretty great. And I like Easy Going Man for the opening titles of a never-made Ealing Comedy starring Peter Sellers, Norman Wisdom and Eric Sykes delivering milk in 1950s London.

Excellent description. That's the "guitar" one. I like the piano noodling over the lazy beats. It's very Mick, even if it's not rock and roll. It's like deconstructed Mick melodies, or something.

Edit: Oops. "Bad Mood" is the "guitar" one.

OK so it looks like I only played the first three previously which I thought "Pretty Thing" was the best. I have now played all the tracks and "Easy Going Man" is easily the best track. I like the guitar on "Bad Mood".

I don't have a turntable. Is there a chance Mick will make these tracks available for download? I'm happy to pay 30 for a download as well...

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

:huh: Sorry but it looks like this is a beginner who made the music. Very disappointing from the great Mick Jones! I hope this is a joke, a moment of madness. Finally I do not know...please wake up and STAY FREE bro!

I wasn't overly keen on first hearing but I like half of the tracks now. I think we all know Mick is capable of much better output but that's not the point. It was the project as whole the way it was packaged and promoted. As a one off project it works really neat.
