Download from iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/gateway-drug/id381127541 Gateway Drug -- by Xiren http://xiren.net Music by Xiren Lyrics by Xiren with Ben Jansen This video is the product of MANY caffeinated hours at my PC, a Best Buy cam with rickety tripod and the help of my high school neighbor. Everything was shot within walking distance of my house and no animals were hurt during the making of this video (except at lunch). However, the guitar I buried in the sand will never be the same. Im sure the crunching noises during tuning will enhance its value. This was my first, and possibly last, multi-location self produced video for a while. Whew. I need to shout out to the coolest co-writer around, Ben Jansen, who Ive worked with for many years. Im always grateful for his contributions. Thanks to Brian McRae http://drumoverdubs.com and "Doctor" Rich Ross http://richross.com for laying down a thunderous rhythm section. Thanks to Geoff Stanfield http://www.geoffstnafield.com for my making my favorite mix. Thanks to Rafael Decamargo for early morning filming at the beach. And special thanks to David Miller for filming the final scene when Rafael got grounded for ditching class. Thanks to Trevor Sands, Aaron English, niki.padawan and others who gave great feedback on the video ultimately leading to the final version. Lies are cracks in desert sand, Xiren (pronounced seer-rin) http://xiren.net
