How Advantage – 10 Year Itch was Written

<–Read the full Article–> It started with a jam session on my first ever keyboard, which was a Casio (not sure which).

Naturally it had the usual drum pre-sets and some very bad synth sounds, but it played its part.

It is built off a bar of B and a bar of C and if you can listen to the track, you will hear that synth sound in the background as the backbone of the track.

The drums are the same as the keyboard pattern, and can also be heard in the background, but naturally I built a real drum track over the top of it for more flair.

Andy then wrote the bass line, and the guitar lines and we recorded then in one sitting, as we were into rough and ready productions at that time (really, we still weren’t good enough at it, in the food world they call it “rustic”).

The Charles Manson thing came later.

At that stage of our lives, we had come out of a heavy metal/punk band and really had that punk attitude still in our bellies.

Also, a great part of music marketing at that time was how to get yourself in front of as many faces as possible by being deliberately obtuse, think “Firestarter” by The Prodigy to get what I mean.

Also, neither of us could sing.

I was looking for free vocal snippets online and came across the full speech that you can hear in the song, so I cut it up, fit it round the music and Advantage was born.

Why is it called Advantage? I don’t know, as we were rubbish at naming tracks.

Instead, we pick the first word that came to our head beginning with A.

First track, first word, first letter of the alphabet.
