We made "Rush Crush" in 1999.
Twenty years later... the musicvideo is out!
KRISTIANSAND 1999 : It was a warm sunny sunday afternoon and hangovertime. Nevertheless, Rob strapped his blue ESP M-1 around his neck, turned on the Roland VG-88 and almost commanded me to start the pc and launch Cubase.
He said he had to get some stuff out of his chest, so I just pressed "record" and let him burst it all out. There were heavy metal riffs and crazy Van Halen`like guitarsolos all over the place. No plan - no click - no nothing. Just a plain and simple musical dump of his mind right there and then. Listening back to it, I knew straight away there were some great riffs in there we could use. So I copied and pasted his guitartrack like crazy. Even transposed and timestretched some parts to make it fit. Then I programmed the other sounds on the Korg Triton and added the vocals. This is the only song we have ever produced this way. And we have never even seen the guy who`s produced the video. He is living on the other side of the globe. We are really living in exciting times.

Exclusive backing track "STEEL INVASION" for sale!
KRISTIANSAND, NORWAY: It`s truly happening... we`re taking off by launching YOUR next backing track : "Steel Invasion". Have you got what it takes? Can your song invade the billboard charts just like Space Invaders did back in the eighties?
The first track from the highly acclaimed songwriter & producer Rob Alien - "Steel Invasion" is also the first track we make available for exclusive copyright purchase. This means the track will be excluded from our shop so noone else can buy it after the date of purchase. It will be yours only - forever.
We may accept lower bids or offers, but as long as its available on this page, first buyer gets the deal done. Technicalities aside, Mr Rob Alien has with this remarkable effort, made an overpowered rock/heavymetal backing track suitable for both men and female voices, making other songwriters and producers like Quincy Jones and Desmond Child feel misguided. "Rob is practically reinventing the eighties from scratch!", Pumpingstein (artist/producer) admits and acknowledges how history has changed over the last years. Everything starts off in shallow waters with delightful clean guitars steadying ships building up to a majestic ride between fighting guitarnecks harnessing frenzy picks and fingers running up and down the fretboard side by side - raging against a mental metal drummer smashing his drums like there`s no tomorrow or yesterday`s call.
Now, can you follow up as the vocalist in the band? This is happening now. Do you feel the pressure? Will you be the first artist that makes it big with this backing track? It`s time to put your songwriting skills to the test by writing the vocal part(s) to this hardhitting monstersingle and make it into a blockbusting superhit - all you need is a catchy melody and some nice haunting lyrics (just to scare off the little ones). Get in the right frame of mind and be creative. Good luck!
