The music of John Option is published under the terms of the Creative Commons License (CC-BY-SA) and they are completely produced only with free software: Ardour, Hydrogen, Jack, Qsynth, CALF, and many other great free audio software that we used under a GNU/Linux system.
But with the project of John Option we have done a little more in the direction of freedom. As for the free software the source code is accessible for the users, we decided to do the same thing for our music. So we published the single recording tracks of the songs and the complete Ardour sessions. All this material is published in our official website under the CC-BY-SA license so that anyone can use our tracks to produce a remix of our song or even a new song that have to be published under the same license.

And do you know where lies the difference?... It's in the monkey's perspective. While this song, has a monkey as the subject, a banana can be seen as a subject of monkey. I really like bananas... besides tasty, they are also an important source of potassium.... and, since I also like a lot of this song, I suppose that there's only one possible conclusion to take: there's also a peculiar similarity between the song and me. Yes!... There's a monkey inside of both. And, as it seems, they both love monkeying around. Bad monkeys... good music, though.
All of the sudden, I wouldn't relate this musical exercise with Italy, but... what the heck... life lasts only for two days, and this one already counts. Loved that initial vinyl noise detail, 'cause it really creates a good introduction to the consequent musical environment. A very nice track with a clear sound where both the vocals and instruments, even though interacting perfectly, can be easily identified. The only defect I fond, is the one related to all the good things... it lasts shortly. However, and unlike life, you can always play it again.
