Compression
An improvisation by the Big Jerks

 

I read about it in the Rolling Stone just today

I read about it

I read about it in the Rolling Stone today

I read about it

They called it the death of fidelity

I read about it in the Rolling Stone yesterday

y'see they interviewed a buncha producers in

the music industry and they said something's happened

something's happened something's happened something's happened

to fidelity because since the 90s they've been

compressing the music

because they figure the kidsrgonna listen to it

on MP3s anyway

so the quiet parts are louder and the loud parts are squished down

y'see the kids think it's more exciting if you dont

have quiet parts in your songs

if there's NO QUIET PARTS the kids think it's more exciting somehow

 

So the old way of making records, sorry that's passe that's passe

it's not very exciting, everybody likes it compressed

Compression Compression Compression squish it

Gotta compress that shit

squish it down Karl

Squeeze everybody squeeze

everybody squeeze it everybody squeeze it

 

the audio signal should be a big black line

that goes all the way to both ends

SQUEEZE SQUEEZE SQUEEZE SQUEEZE SQUEEZE

sure it's not musical but it's fashionable

SQUEEZE IT y'gotta squeeze it

y'gotta squeeze it, y'gotta squeeze it

y'gotta squeeze it Brian

those kids they have a short attention span Karl

The quiet parts upset them

no no you gotta have it one volume all the time

all the time, all the time, all the time

y'gotta squeeze it, y'gotta squeeze it

Louder! Louder! Louder!

that's right, that's about right, that's what we want! Loud!

You gotta squeeze it, the kids love it!
