Zendertapes #1 - Scam

Finally it is time to release some studio session recordings taken during the recording of Jamiroquais second album. First song we decided to put up is a different funky version of Scam.

Short interview with Stuart Zender about this song:

Hi Stuart. I am sure listening to these old tapes again brings back some memories...
- Hearing these tapes conjures such fond memories of a time when music and the creative process was so free and uninhibited. I loved how we went through so many changes. We used to jam as a 3/4 piece. Myself, Toby and Derrick and Jay. We used to lay percussion and guitar stuff after we had written the basis of the track.

So tells us a secret we didn't know about the song Scam...
- That weird intro was written by me on the keyboard using just patterns.. Shapes...

What bass did you use?
- I used my Alembic... That got stolen out of my car! I used different basses on all of the tracks actually.

Was scam one of the first songs you did for second album?
- To tell you the truth I can't remember. We used to jam so much on tour, writing new songs at the soundchecks

Did you like how scam ended up on the album?
- Hmm... Not really... But kind of...
