40 Thieves see their long overdue return to Permanent Vacation with a new song recorded with the legendary Disco impresario, Gary Davis. Davis is best known for his band, Sanction, providing backing tracks to the majority of output from Peter Brown and Patrick Adams’ P&P Records circa the late 70’s and early 80’s. The Jones Girls, Wayne Ford, Queen Constance.. that was Gary playing the synthesizers and writing the orchestration. The Chocolate Star EP, released on Davis’ own imprint of the same name in 1982, included the original version of “Gotta Get Your Love” – the widely sampled, oft’ re-pressed and NJ disco staple that continues to see circulations and iterations nearly every year. Other songs Davis is widely known for writing and producing across the decades would be “Gee Dee”, “The Pop”, “The Professor Here” and “Last Night” to name a few. Fast forward to Summer 2020… Everything and everyone is on lockdown. Gary and Layne mask-up for a couple of hours to goof off and record some tracks together in-person for the first time, no expectations other than a long overdue meeting and break from the insanity. Layne had prepared a simple beat for recording, and Gary started layering his parts, one by one, playing every instrument entirely through the song in one take, with a punch-in here and there. After 45 minutes Gary asked, do we have it? To which Layne replied, “Yes, pretty sure there’s something there.” After a few hours of editing and mixing “Spaghettified” was born. The name represents the time we all went through in 2020, pulled apart, isolated in space and time, indeed some of the deepest and heavier times of our lives. Unlike its name, however, Spaphettified offers a stark contrast for 2021…relying on familiar, uplifting melodies, strings and solos that could only be used to celebrate the better side of life, and done so in a voice that is unmistakably Gary’s Own.//
