I got an invite from a local French music label to submit a track for an album. The album will be call Museum. Each invited musician must use something from history as an inspiration for their composition. I decided to use the iconic Citroën SM!
I hope you like it…..
A funk number inspired by one of the most iconic cars from the 70s. The Citroën SM! …a high-performance coupé produced by the French manufacturer Citroën from 1970 to 1975. Citroën purchased Maserati in 1968 with the intention of harnessing Maserati’s high-performance engine technology to produce a true Gran Turismo car, combining the sophisticated Citroën suspension with a Maserati V6. The result was the incredible Citroën SM.
The bass player in the funk band that I play with found this rhythmic displacement line on a youtube channel called ‘studio jams’. He’s been driving us mad with it ever since. Thing is, when the guys on YT play it they speed up slightly, making it very hard to get just right. I decided to see if I could put it together ‘straight’. Here’s the result…..
Thanks to Tim Bragg for the flute, Andy ‘SupaWal’ Bennett for the drums, and Serge Bardot for the bass. I played the guitar and keyboards parts. It was fun! 🙂
