New mix posted: Tracking Tina

Yet another song inspired by a feature on National Public Radio - a few years back there was a mini-trend of parents buying GPS enabled cell phones for their teenagers so they would be able to keep track of their whereabouts. I don't know what happened to the trend - probably the teenagers would be too savvy for something like that to work for long - but apparently the parents had a go.

So, the song is about being able to do things like that and the impulse behind it. Another rockin' little number - a fave live tune - a lot of the recording; the main guitar part (all the solos etc.) and the rhythm section parts are just the way we played it live in the studio.
