'Razor Blade Babies' is a remake of a song that I wrote and
recorded way back in the early 80's. The original song is called
'Razor Blade Baby' and appears on my first solo CD 'PHHHP Plus'.
'Razor Blade Baby' is one of my very first attempts at recording
on a 4 track cassette recorder. I didn't even own my own 4 track
at this time. I had to wait until my oldest brother Ralph had a
gig, then I'd drive to his apartment and while he was away, I'd
fire up his Yamaha machine and record until 2:00am. Thanks Ralph!
After releasing my first multitracking app 'Beyond Life And
Cosmic Kinetics' (which gives the user the option to combine
various recorded tracks), I though it would be cool to rerecord
a few old songs (but with current sounds/production), then A/B
(toggle/compare) the tracks.
Basically, what the app does is let you toggle between
instruments that were recorded decades ago to instruments
that were just recently recorded.

BTW, you cannot just upload/import any existing song released
in stereo into the app and magically expect the stems/tracks to
separate and load up so that you have control of them. Yes, it is
possible to release other songs with this multitracking app format,
but all stems need to be separated, synced, and programmed in.
Special thanks to Karolina for the killer baby graphics!
