Hmm… what to say about this piece…
For starters, let me clearly state that “Thugs” didn’t turn out at all how I intended. I was working on a deathmetal battle theme and instead it turned out like this.
Rather than throw it out and start again, I decided to wrestle with the piece a bit longer and flesh it out as more than just an 8-bar theme. Maybe someone out there can find a use for the cheesy rock style as the theme song for… something?
“Thugs” is awfully repetitive for my taste, but it did end up being fairly catchy. Unfortunately.
