A number of months ago, during that whirlwind of whimsy that was Gextra Life, I recorded a bit of a silly song and subsequently pledged to write a one act musical about Gex and Bubsy. It’s a few songs and a few months later, and I’ve long since completely run out of steam regarding this particular project. But, I had an idea that legitimately interests me and might actually make a decent end product: Gexby not as a one act musical, but as a pretentious art rock concept album. That is something I can happily complete, and I feel - or at least I hope - that it doesn’t violate the spirit of the informal, bizarre pledge I made.
That said, the goal of this thread is to document my process and progress, record my ideas, and have a place to post things as I work on a weird-ass concept album about the relationship between third-rate video game characters. I am going to scrap what I have thus far as I don’t think it’s very good, though I think I’m obligated to integrate a new version of the Gextra Confrontation, and hopefully one that is legally distinct from the source material. As I complete tracks I’ll post them here, but in the meantime here’s the song that started this, presented in its original context: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw4cLzWYa2o&feature=youtu.be&t=28m8s
