I know several of these are old now but I'm in need of a diversion this morning so I thought I'd give some feedback. Obviously this is all just my taste and the production suggestions are not meant to be taken as objective feedback, they're just what would work for me.
Most of the lead on this sounds more like a Pink Floyd, Dave Gilmour solo than Hendrix to me. I like it, anyway, tight recording. Possibly a little over-polished, hence the other lad/lass comment about it sounding like porn music. >>10442 is much better in this regard - a good combination of things in the mix and all well-levelled, and properly processed without sounding plastic. The work you've put into your production techniques between the two is evident.
Vocals are too clean; could possibly benefit from some reverb, and then compressor/EQing. The guitar is slightly out of tune and isn't particularly well-captured, which can be endearing for this kind of music, but at least needs some more treble to give it some more definition to bring it back into the mix (this has probably been lost in recording, so something to work on next time), and definitely less clipping. For this kind of thing, ideally you'd mic different parts of the guitar from a reasonable distance (neck for the higher frequencies, body for the lower, and not necessarily the sound hole, counter-intuitively - you'll get booming, like a mic without a baffle) and play around with the resulting tracks afterwards, but even if you continue using what you've got, turn it down some to get a cleaner output and adjust it back up in the mix. Bottom line, remember that you can generally make a cleanly-recorded acoustic guitar sound more "raw" with a bit of post-processing, but a bad recording is basically stuck like that. The clock chimes are also too piercing for my taste -they contrast sharply with the muffled guitar- but that at least is easily fixed.
Excellent bit of punk. Appropriately grungy, short, and offensive with a bit of self-aware wit; not much to add. (You're doing the opposite of refuting post-modernism, though, incidentally. Maybe I'm missing the joke.)
