Monday Mornin’ sure looked fine… or so the song goes. How much finer could that day look when you are able to wake up naked? I think the answer would be: None more finer. I do like walking around naked in my house. Ah shit, that’s TMI to you my reader. Now I’ve probably scared you off, never to return – not because of the music, but due to my nutty behaviour.
This weekend I moved into the final stages of recording for my big Christmas project. Woo Hoo! But this isn’t about me, it’s about Victor. Who is Victor? Well, it’s actually a solo project of the guitarist and 1/3 of the band Rush. That guitarist is none other than Alex Lifeson. Back in 1996 I was a bit of a Rush fan, actually I still appreciate that band. However, this isn’t one of their songs. It’s actually Alex Lifeson’s side project, solo wankin’, whatever you wish to call it, called Victor. I’m sorta getting a Chris Gaines kinda vibe, with way more street cred cause it’s Alex.
This particular song is probably the most radio friendly. That’s my sly way of saying, I believe you’ll enjoy the rest of the album, but I’m gonna give ya a warning. Victor is somewhere between hard rock, a strange science experiment, and some jazz thrown in for good measure. To me the whole album just rocks hard from front to back. The trouble for you is actually finding this CD to be able to buy it. It’s barely even on iTunes. I have provided a link, but it’s only good for the Canadian store. I don’t believe you’ll be able to purchase it in any other country via iTunes. You will likely find it in a larger music store because it’s related to Rush.
You might have to hunt the CD down and buy it, but it’s well worth the hunt. Especially for songs like today’s single – Strip and Go Naked, Don’t Care, Start Today, Mr. X, Sending Out a Warning, and of course the title track Victor. Or if you’re from Canada you’re a lucky dog and can click the link above to get straight to the iTunes page. It almost seems to qualify for a Sunday’s Child, but it was released on a big lable, therefore it’s just hard to find though it is available. What’s even more screwy is that Alex doesn’t even have a personal website (that I can find), nor did he create one for Victor, silly silly silly.
But it! You’ll Like It, I swear! Bonus points to those who know the band I referenced first in this post. Additional bonus points for naming the movie which comes after the first band reference. Go ahead, make my day and tell me what you know.
