Stretch Armstrong

from 10¢ by drummis



"Stretch Armstrong" was a toy from the late 1970s which capitalized on new plastics technologies. As with most of my songs, the name was chosen after I recorded the tune to the loop pedal (where, to identify loops, I give the track a name). The name comes from a kind of word association game -- the first thing that comes to my mind becomes the name of the track. For me, this usually takes the form of a two-word title. It's a mystery to me where these references come from -- which is the point, I guess, because I don't know where the music comes from either.
