Syd Barrett's No Good Trying is just a great psychedelic pop rock song. This was recorded in the late 80's along with Michael Audino's drum track, which, if my memory serves, was for an entirely different song. I recorded to the drum track and made it fit, somewhat brokenly...though it fits the Syd vibe. John Ian Davis (the answering machine voice from the song Judas This is Jesus) also performs with me on this one.
