My 18" Wesco's before rebuild There’s not a whole lot I could tell you about what I was thinking when I wrote Crazed and Hypnotized. I was thinking about Bad Bikers in Love”. That’s what I call this song sometimes.

The analog tracks were originally recorded on a Yamaha MT-100 II 4 track cassette recorder using high speed (3.75 IPS) and dbx noise reduction.

I played electric guitar on a Fender Stratocaster and maybe an Ibanez Les Paul (?). The bass was a Rickenbacker 4001. The drums and cymbals, plus some digital editing, are from the original recording using my Boss Dr. Rhythm drum machine sounds. I was using a Yamaha MIDI drum pad. I only added bass drum through the fills. I also played handclaps, foot stomps, wood block, and cow bell. I recorded my newly rebuilt Wesco 18 inch lineman’s boots stomping on the floor in the kitchen with my MXL condenser microphone. My ankle hurt all the next day. I digitally processed the instrument and vocal tracks using Cakewalk Sonar 8.5 Producer DAW and Sony Sound Forge 9 audio editor.
