Thanks @sigh butterfly ! I must admit, I'd never heard of Gilbert O'Sullivan... One of my other bandmates suggested we do Alone Again (Naturally)!

Because we are mainly a studio band*, and we recorded mostly at school, it's going to be much harder to do anything now we're not at school. We might still get to do a few more though. Performing live is something that if we really wanted to, we'd be able to - Melbourne has quite a good live music scenea-hard-days-night-george-4

 

*we did perform live once, though. Here's a picture for you (though the bass guitarist is the keyboard player's brother (he's not actually in our band, I overdub the bass parts on the recordings) and there's no photo with the other band member, playing the keytar):

Hopefully you can pursue it Holey, you guys have a cool look and can create a setlist to match the venue (since you cover such a wide variety of musical genres).

What with coronavirus and self-isolation I've finally had time to remember to release the single I've been meaning to release for the last month or two...

https://angusraiskums.bandcamp.....-at-school

paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Technically nowhere does it say double A-side or A-side/B-side, so let me know which one you'd go witha-hard-days-night-john-3

 

edit:

I said in reply to @sigh butterfly 

Because we are mainly a studio band*, and we recorded mostly at school, it's going to be much harder to do anything now we're not at school. We might still get to do a few more though.

By the way, we have started some work on an album - including a Beatles songjohn-lennon-salute_gif, so that might be done by 2027 - who knows?ahdn_john_08_gif

Haven't listened to 'Stuck in School' yet, but really enjoyed the A-side! It's very satisfying harmonically with that almost bluesy chord progression, and the guitar playing is excellent (reminded me a lot of Old Brown Shoe ). The lyrics are definitely very relatable too, and I found myself chuckling at the rhyme schemes. I like it a lot - a very deadpan sense of humour.

Woow @The Hole Got Fixed that is so impressive!! I didn't know you made original music! I love how Beatlesque it sounds. But it is still quite in touch with modern production and it's original as well! It's not the type of music I usually listen to but I love how professional it sounds, you should be really proud. Some of us only wish we could do the stuff you do.

 

Also, this is not original music, but I published on Vimeo a mashup of two Led Zeppelin songs (YouTube wouldn't let me for obvious reasons). If there's any LZ fans, listen to this medley-ish composed of In My Time of Dying and In the Light (I discovered they're both on the same keya-hard-days-night-paul-5)

@The Hole Got Fixed I don’t say this lightly because I’m a big fan of a lot of your earlier stuff, but this is the best music i’ve heard from you. It is really tight! The songwriting, the playing, the production is all there. And I can tell you’re starting to get more confident as a vocalist. It sounds great!

Excellent songs, Holey!paul-mccartney-thumb_gif Love the choice of song themes. I'm probably the only one who thinks this, but the "yeahs" in Stuck In School kinda sound like a Linda part on a Wings song, which is cool.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

The chord progression was one of those moments where you start playing and realise it's worth making it into a song... good to hear I'm not the only one who thinks that way. The lyrics are basically a chronicle of my life - and right now, a chronicle of everyone's life!

Yeah I make music - there's another album of stuff on my bandcamp, and my band's last two albums aren't bad (our early ones are a bit of a tough listena-hard-days-night-john-7). It's what I want modern music to be - having the benefit of hi-tech recording equipment and as many tracks as you do or don't want, but real music played in a style from an older generation. I'm definitely very proud of it, they're two of my best tracks - and I'm very lucky to be able to make it at all.

(Love the LZ mashup by the way!)

Well, to contribute, here is a mix of a cover of Electrolite by R.E.M. played by me and a certain @The Hole Got Fixed on drums:

https://ewe2.ninja/mp3/electro.....e-mix8.mp3

I will get around to a bandcamp when I have some more original stuff, I'm in the process of gathering gear still for that. This is one of the first things I mixed in my new DAW called Reaper which is a fantastic tool that I'm learning and has many advantages over just using Audacity.

Inspired by all the recent postings I've decided to make a soundcloud account and post some of my demos. 

Here's a little EP I made called 'Ramblings':

https://soundcloud.com/j-coltr.....772/albums

'Regrets' is basically a standard rock song from about 2 years ago, with terrible lyrics I came up with right before recording them.

'Song to Björk' is a Talking Heads inspired instrumental with lyrics I adapted from Caliban's speech in Shakespeare's The Tempest

'St Lucy's Day' is a random electronic instrumental I made when I was messing around with Logic.

'Sun City' is another standard rock song. Please excuse the very quiet vocals on this, the song isn't really in my ideal range but I like the instrumental so I included it anyway.

And here's another song I wrote and recorded this morning called 'Driftwood'. It's an indie folk style song about the coronavirus.

Wow, definitely make "Stuck in School" the A-side, Holey, it's super! I'm always susceptible to that kind of discoish octave-bass playing, and your lead guitar bits are really well thought out (or improvised?) Also I agree with SWR regarding your singing. You have a very unaffected, natural voice, it sounds very much like your spoken voice, I imagine. yoko-ono_01

Anyways, sounds like a Top 5 smash hit single for sure, at least in some other universe.  This record 'slaps', it is 'a bop', and all the other pimply hyperboles. A great job as usual, turn it up! (Wrong thread)
