EVERY LITTLE BIT HURTS —Caron Vikre

This song was another from my 1992 release SAQQARA. The track showcases the harmonies of Kathy Elzey and Gail George, with Ray Elzey on guitar, and David Houston, as always, raiding the broom closet for things to jingle and smash.

When we found ourselves drummer-less at the onset of making this record we knew we were at a disadvantage. To compensate, we made the best of a bad situation and focused on what we deemed to be our strength, namely, our vocals. I’ve always had a soft spot for pop songs slathered in harmonies, so having two extra singers in the band—particularly ones as skilled as Kathy and Gail—was a bit of a dream. It made missing a drummer nearly tolerable—but only nearly. Though, we played and promoted SAQQARA for a couple of years, sadly, it was our last record together.

  1. I think that the drums work fine within the context of this song. It’s so dominant on vocals, and the drums sit quite nicely in the mix. The harmonies sound wonderful, as does your lead. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks, Rob. I appreciate your comment. The drum thing doesn’t bother me now as much as it use to, but there’s no getting around the fills not sounding loose. It’s hard to fake passion with a drum machine. In spite of that though, making the record was great fun!
