I told you the goods will keep coming in the following weeks! So today I’ve got an encore to last week’s CD that was leaked (full of The Wolf demos). I kind of cringe at the label “demos” because that’s not necessarily what these are. Really they are unfinished tracks from the recording process. But that’s kind of a convoluted headline. Anyway, here is my analysis of these tracks just as I did last week.
The first track is another unused track that we’ve never heard before!!! It’s actually pretty cool. Maybe we’ll hear it fleshed out on some official release in the future? #2 Tear It Up – another version, are you kidding me?! #3 Violent Life – this track is exciting because to me it sounds like this was an attempt to turn this b-side from I Get Wet (officially released on the Party Hard single, but probably taken from the 1999 recording sessions) into a full fledged track intended to appear on The Wolf. During this era of AWK this is the track they would play at the beginning of every live concert. So now we have a very cool Wolf-sounding version of it. #4 Again, another version of Your Rules. However in this track it almost sounds like something was being isolated on purpose in order to add to it later.
OK lastly this fifth track and version of The End of Our Lives was not included on the CD above. It’s rather unique. What’s cool about this version is it contains a metronome which kind of acts like a quasi percussion for the song. Also this version contains an unused verse that never made it into the final version or even into last week’s version. But I really, really like it. So there you have it. Did you ever think we’d get this Wolf demos? Crazy.
It’s going to get even crazier. I’ve got tons of demos from I Get Wet. They will blow your mind. Some might be disappointed that most of these Wolf demos don’t contain lyrics (I find it kinda cool to have a bunch of instrumental tracks though). But I promise these I Get Wet demos will not disappoint. In fact the next leak I think will go down in AWK history.
