The Parallel Evolution of Checkpoint Charlie

In August 2013 Checkpoint Charlie was just an unfinished riff, while recording the interview for Lord Litter's Magic Music Box I played it into his hard-drive
 and left it there to germinate in Berlin.
Meanwhile, I also took it back to Manchester.
This was an experiment in parallel evolution and the results were two very different songs carrying the same basic musical DNA.
Strangely (and unknown to both of us) each version would be finished and mixed the same weekend during October.


You can hear (and download) both versions via the soundcloud links below:
The Speed Of Sound version

And
The Armstrong/Litter version

Completely different, but the same:
Vive le difference
