Re: NUR EIN XV - Pistols at Dawn

Pistols at Dawn by The Serviettes This rudderless boat has finally hit land Salt on our lips The waves cascade upon the sand The sun in the sky obscured by rain clouds up above It's an omen For our love Now rations ran dry several weeks ago Mutiny revealed itself simmering below The facade of our no...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

Some liner notes for my shadow: I wanted to write about the world entering the homestretch before its destruction and thought it would be cool to try to cram the whole of human history into a three minute song. Unfortunately, a) I've been really busy with work this week, so didnt have much time and ...

Re: NUR EIN XV - Homestretch

Homestretch by The Serviettes So long ago before we evolved We built fires to ward off the cold Some of us were stronger So they attacked Those who were weaker And took what they had Now we're so advanced But leopards don't change their spots Cos those that have Still crush the have nots We're on th...

North Beach Vampires by The Serviettes (shadow) It used to be the news told you what had happened And you would decide what you thought about it Now it only tells you how to think You've got to decide if it happened or not Think how far the human race has come Let's not go back to square one Instead...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

Some liner notes for my shadow: It took me a few attempts before I landed on what I was gonna do for this challenge. I started off going for a surf tune, which was awful. Then I moved on to indie rock, which was just a bit dull. I eventually settled on doing the whole thing a cappella (I'm sure some...

Haha, thought I'd check before I plodded off on some nonsensical tangent!

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

Can I just check, is this title some kind of cultural reference not immediately obvious to non-Americans or is it just a random collection of words? I've had a look on the interwebs but can't see anything.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Four "Carte Blanche"

Some notes for my shadow: I absolutely loved this challenge, as I'm a sucker for some Bond music(especially the John Barry era). Most of the themes have nothing to do with the film they're from, other than shoehorning the title in, so no plot from me for an imaginary one. I've tried to use vst brass...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

Some liner notes for my shadow: I came up with my take on this challenge pretty much immediately but work's been a bit crazy this week, so I haven't had time to finish the full arrangement (it was full of mellotrons and everything!). I've therefore decided to post the demo, so you get an idea of wha...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

I feel like I should stop being lazy and actually write some liner notes this week. I thought my songs for rounds 0 and 1 were a bit sub par. They're the sort of stuff I would've posted on FAWM six or seven years ago, so I wanted to up my game a bit. Firstly, let me say, I really enjoyed this week's...
