Turn up loud on your computer the majestic "22nd Street" by Greenhouse Effect and Clark Hagins. Virtually EVERY Instrument that you hear on this track was performed and carefully overdubbed by Hagins except for the bass by Rick Carmody. Layers of thought out guitar parts are strategically placed in this modern rock song that blasts it's way along as if in a Star Trek Soundtrack : "22nd Street" is one of the exceptional Greenhouse Effect songs" Says Hagins at thegreenhouseEffectrocks.com in San Diego Ca 2013. "That track is pretty brilliant and it always gets a lot of internet activity ,....it's some fucking trippy shit" Says Hagins. Aside from the psychedelic roots of the music in the tune, there are influences ranging from Bowie to the Cure to the Smiths to Bauhaus to Joy Division to Killing Joke to U2 ,...and the song greatly obviously benefits as it relies on the songwriting skills of Hagins in the process: "It's a complicated track that demands a full whole listen ,...but you quickly realize that you are listening to amazing good shit here,..... the fact that we are doing sounds that nobody else in the world is doing is what makes G.e. different and special ,... We strive to not be part of any scene or resemble anything else from today ,...for the most part, today's music fucking sucks" Says Haggins "It all sounds the same.." - Haggins has been critical of Rap and Hip hop music in particular in 2013: "Rap music fucking sucks ,...I hate it,...it has nothing to offer,...artistically,..it is void" Says Hagins "An art form that all sounds the same and is boring and keeps on doing the same thing is just plain stupid,.... I don't care how much money it makes,....I judge a music culture by the audience that consumes it too ,.... and it is void of creativity ,... it's making our whole fucking world bad,...we need more creative music ..." Says the very political Haggins. "Creative people who write good blogs or have tons of good shit to say are who should be making our music,.... not Douchebags with no talent" Says Hagins. 22nd Street has been a major success for G.e. online along with BRANDY, IT AIN'T EASY, MISOGYNISTIA ( She's A Bitch,..) , NO TAKERS, and tons of other tracks that seem to work well for G.e. at Jango Radio and Last.FM and other internet radio sites. "We get a lotta listens, a lotta fans at Facebook, Reverb-Nation, Jango, Myspace, Twitter,...you name it." Says Haggins. Recently ,..Greenhouse Effect picked up their 80.000th Twitter follower ,..as part of their three Twitter accounts: "Twitter is key,.... We get alotta plays and itunes sales through Twitter" Says Hagins as the band has operated their Account there since 2009. At Blip-Tv and Youtube, the band has racked up astounding airplay ,..but their numbers have decreased since their glory days of 2008 and 2007,..but still Hagins and the group are undeterred : "Our music always comes back and gets big airplay and monster downloads,... I don't care if every now and then I have to boost it with payola,.... it's those new fans every year that come in and support us,...THEY make it all worth while ,.." Says Haggins. The success of G.e. all over the web world wide has stunned other bands ,..including many on major Labels who don't have one quarter the clout of Hagins and G.e. " What it is all about is the fans ,..the people who love your music and what you do,..the people who read the blogs and learn about your life,... My life is pretty funny,..I clean swimming Pools and I am 50 years old and few people realize that ,.... to be this big all over the web and to think that is pretty fucking funny" Says Haggins.
