The Christmas Spirit 2010 – The Fan Club Mix

Posted by Jon, onehumanbeing on December 24, 2010

Here’s a Christmas treat for all UFOverdriver fans (and everyone who considers themselves a member of the unofficial UFOverdriver Fan Club.)

Thank You Everyone

Thank you to everyone who has sent me their comments, passed along their compliments, told me how much they enjoyed the work, etc. over this last year.

I would also like to thank the people who collaborated with me on UFOverdriver, Thomas Jackson Park and Louie Hebert – you both helped me expand my vision and ideas.

And a special thanks to Tania, because without you there would be no music for me, and to our friend Noel – your faith in my work is like fuel.

UFOverdriver – Year One

UFOverdriver has become, for me, a valuable outlet for the collage of ideas that run around my head, for all my musical DJ moments, as a way to express the poetic arts and as a way to travel deeper into the great, universal subconsciousness.

Throughout the year I’ve been referring to the UFOverdriver as a ship, a vessel rather than a music venture or a band. Working inside this metaphor has allowed me incredible freedom with this project and created an artist space that can not be seen, but exists only when the UFOverdriver is in motion and sound collages are being created to record the moment.

Christmas is going to bring a few equipment upgrades to the UFOverdriver as my Christmas gift money gets invested into this ship. I was thinking a Tesla Sonic Inducer would be a nice addition, along with a Tesla Anti-Gravity Acoustic Wireless Thought Projector. I just might have enough for that if I can get them on sale after Christmas…

Needless to say, 2011 should be interesting. I’ll see you there.

Enjoy the mix!

About the song “Good Morning John”

My friend Pete included this song (Good Morning John by Kris Kristofferson) on a music playlist a couple of months ago, and it really got under my skin – in a good way – and during this last month it evolved into this sound collage – Thanks Pete!

Kris Kristofferson originally wrote this song about Johnny Cash’s struggles with addiction for a sobriety party in the 1970s. He explained to Billboard magazine: “Everyone was supposed to say something inspirational, so I wrote a song. I tried to record this once before with Willie Nelson and my band. When I sang the chorus, they echoed me when I would sing ‘Good morning John.’ When I got to the line that said ‘I love you John,’ Willie said ‘He loves you John’ and we all cracked up laughing. We never finished it, so I finished it myself.”

In an ongoing effort to document the craziness of the moment, I offer you this… Dance Upon Injustice – Glenn Beck VS Jesus

Here’s my Sunday sermon – enjoy, reflect, pass it on…


Source material

Background music bed – various samples and loops taken from the live Delirious? album from the late 1990’s called Live and In The Can along with a bit from Radiohead‘s album Kid A, the first track called Everything In It’s Right Place.

The voice samples are from an ABC news report on Glenn Beck’s recent social justice comment, and  also Johnny Cash (standing in for the words of Jesus) reading from the New Testament – Matt. 25:31-46
