Who'd a thunk being hated could feel so good. :)

Hmmm, not sure which you're referring to. Is it the
old straw in the drum head trick or an electronic
thing? If electronic, it's probably John Berglund on
the guitar. Bergie is a master of guitar noise.

I'll post a straw in the drum head song later tonight.
It's a cool screeching sound.

After several minutes in the thinking room I know what
you're referring to. As you said, it's a percussion
instrument. Lico De Santos played the percussion but
for the life of me I can't remember the name. I'll see
Lico tomorrow and ask him about it. It is a great
sound and fit well into this song.

Wow, lots of new music to listen but so little time.
Thursday I'm gonna do some listening. I love it.
Thanks to everyone.
