S.C.A.T.P.I.T
STEV CINTURY AND THE PUREST INVENTIONS TODAY

Time Alone
A love song wrapped in an enigma shrouded in a pandemic
coming in time for Halloween on these platforms






Halloween2020.

This tune went down well back in the day and with everything old becoming new again it's found a new home in 2020. It took a different turn with covid though. Several players were unable to get to the studio so a new arrangement was recorded. In this arrangement the title lyric ended up being removed and the change inspired variations and a wider theme. So, this is part one. Check it out at Halloween.


S.C.A.T.P.I.T
...formed in 2020, and is an anagram compiled from some of the original bands Melbourne singer/song-writer Stev Cintury has been part of since the mid 80's which include Pure Instinct and Tesla's Invention.

Hence Stev Cintury And The Purest Inventions Today. The "Today" represents everything well... today.

And today S.C.A.T.P.I.T is a virtual playground for various talented musicians, family and friends Stev has hung with over the journey who are having some fun reprising a few tunes.

Stay tuned. Halloween is going to be special with a great recording and quirky filmclip of Time Alone Pt.1. This song has been years in the making and we can't wait for you to hear a rather unique song.

In the meantime the songs below are an eclectic assortment of ideas from the 80's. 90's and 00's mostly recorded by Stev on a four track and, while a few have been bounced more times than a tennis ball at a grand slam and some will never be recorded again, others are getting a reprise.

Stev's song writing influences pull from Bowie, Beatles, Van Morrison and Cat Stevens where as the sound influences draw from Joy Division/New Order, Pink Floyd and Prince.

The end results are songs that have a unique and melodic style all of their own. Hope your system can work with the domestic recording quality of the 80's & 90's and enjoy the tunes. Reprising some old tunes and exploring some new ones as S.C.A.T.P.I.T is an experience we can't wait for.

Q: HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT SONG WRITING?
STEV: Typically I start with a progression and see what that is saying to me. Then I feel about for the words that fit and try to bring it together. I don't tend to write from a personal space; so often I could be feeling great but writing something soulful or melancholy. On occasian I'll write from life events. When I was coming up with The Milkman there was this event where a Queensland high school student fell in love with the school's milk delivery guy then disappeared and hid away in his house for years. It was bit of a classic so I wrapped a Floydy tune around it. It's a fun song to play.

Q: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MUSIC TODAY?
STEV: It's certainly changing. The advancement in technology has meant on one hand there's never been a better time to create music while on the other hand it may have come at the cost of melodic progressions. With samples and digital sound manipulation changing the way music can be created, artists craft different types of tunes. Personally I like the older tunes. They seem to tell more of a story. That said, there's some great music being produced today.

Q: WHAT DO YOU LISTEN TO TODAY?
STEV: For the last few years I've mostly been listening to jazz. I wan't a huge fan before that but I like the way it doesn't stick in your head and love the musicianship of the artists. Outside of that, the albums I throw on from time to time are Paul Barrett's Third Phase Of Moon, anything from Dirty Three, Pink Floyd and some of the Double/Triple J's Top 100 collections. Then there's also the internet.

Q: ARE S.C.A.T.P.I.T PLANNING ANY LIVE EVENTS?
STEV: No playing at the moment. We're more a studio outfit and spread all over the place. Once the lockdowns lift we'll see how it evolves though. But, there maybe be a live stream of the Time Alone launch around the 27th of October, 2020. There'll be announcements at scatpit.com and on social media.

OK, we don't want to bore the shit out of you so on with the show. Enjoy the music, stay safe and come back again soon. We'll get an emal list or something going. Thanks for visiting.

Cheers
