Talk:Last Wave (Alternative Version)

From This Might Be A Wiki

To Serve Mankind?[edit]

I'm absolutely certain the scratchy voice sound is one of the samples from To Serve Mankind. Does anyone else hear this? Should this be in trivia? --DoubleDenial (talk) 18:16, 23 October 2018 (EDT)

I didn't even recognize that pitchwheely sample as human in origin! You might be onto something. The samples in To Serve Mankind (as well as, for example, Moving and sometimes live Spy) are the solo male and female voice samples from the Chamberlin, rumored to have been recorded by Harry Chamberlin himself in his living room! -j2
Interesting, never even heard of their origin. So I ripped it from both songs and it's definitely the same thing. sample.png
I could do the one in Moving, but it's pretty clearly the exact same sample. There should probably be a category for this, it's pretty interesting. --DoubleDenial (talk) 20:21, 6 December 2018 (EST)
I was listening to A Self Called Nowhere and I think you can hear the same sample at around 2 minutes and 40 seconds. I can't really tell though, even when it's most audible it still has instruments over it. I think it might have another sample (or perhaps actual live voice) mixed with it. --DoubleDenial (talk) 20:59, 12 March 2019 (EDT)

creative synth solos[edit]

I like Linnell best when he's having fun, letting his hair down so to speak. I love the informal wildness of the synth solo on this version of Last Wave. Others with similar feel are She Was A Hotel Detective In The Future and Twenty-Five O'Clock. --Nehushtan (talk) 11:42, 16 December 2019 (EST)

Also similar - the low-key synth part behind the 3rd verse of By The Time You Get This. --Nehushtan (talk) 12:11, 22 June 2022 (EDT)
