Original Song: A Lot Of Ways To Die In Alaska (Cliff Cavan Goes Postal Remix)
Aaron and I have been mates for years and play together in The Hellbenders – and he’s bloody talented! Aaron will tweak his home projects endlessly, which is a pity as very few every get finished. I, of course, am the complete opposite tossing songs up on this site well before they’ve been fine-tuned. That makes Aaron and I the perfect combo I reckon: Aaron turns my rough demos into something that sounds heaps better – and I stop the process taking too long. Aaron would still be mucking around with this, but I dig it just the way it is.
Our collaborations will be going under the moniker of “Cliff Cavan Goes Postal” – Cliff is obvious, so is Cavan. Going postal is a reference to both Cliff Clavin from Cheers, and also the fact that we work via email, “mailing” parts to each other to build up a song.
If you listen to the original song first, you’ll notice how the CCGP Remix maintains the feel but adds so much more!
