Had almost given up on this one

I love the sound of royal enfield and the noise of traffic has its own rhythm. I remember a few years back I'd found a live online sound feed where local train service operators and their central office would intermittently chatter.... I kid you not, I think it was on live365.com and the transit service was san francisco bay area's BART. I'd just put my headphones on and program on my computer all day with that ambiance.

Sometime in November I'd found this audio clip of an auto rickshaw in India on soundsnap and also various recordings of the beloved royal enfield. Bless the soul of all those people at soundsnap. I first heard about soundsnap from this post on wire to the ear.

The various traffic conversations and ensuing noise was what lead to this most recent track called Public prosecutions. I've been working on it for a while and was finally able to crack it to my satisfaction just last week. I know its not right to sneak it into the album but it was always meant to go there so I'm just going to add it there.
