Re: Niv and the Exploration

I think the introduction of multiple fights may have had something to do with increased numbers. A lot of musicians did every title during in that time, so it may be a slightly false positive, so to speak.

Re: Niv and the Exploration

... Then I received a blessing in the name of one, Johnny Cashpoint. Despite the fact that I was making trash entries, he really took me under his wing. We started working together as the Transatlantic Fight Club and musically I haven't been the same since. Let me say this. I am so grateful for hav...

I was quite surprised at the short deadline. Maybe I'll tackle the other title now.

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Happy birthday, Song Fight! I found Song Fight in 2003 through a link on 365days (which was a weird music archive). I'd been recording stuff, on and off, before that but I was looking for somewhere I called home. Found it, and forever grateful. It gave me the drive that was lacking to make music. Al...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

Perhaps a thread where someone can volunteer to hear a song via whatever method which is chosen for the big day, to check levels and latency and balance etc in advance?

Anyway I will stop now as I am only vaguely internet savvy when it comes to such things.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

I think I agree with most of what Fluffy said - so from my situation, I could play ukulele through an amplifier and sing live (as I have the set-up for that) - and at a push, play over backing tracks. Blimey, I could even buy new strings for my acoustic guitar. Anything else more ambitious I don't t...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2020 SF Bay Area Aug 28/29

Will it be every song? Or just "popular" titles? For someone like me who did every fight for c. 10 years, that's a lot o' learning and a long ol' stream! In theory, it would work if it was mainly "acoustic" performances and there aren't any online/not present in the room collaborators. I've never us...

Might well be up for some virtual stuff, though I think the latency issues I have experienced watching bands play together over Zoom or Teams* or whatever might scupper it.

*Seriously, I have never watched an online concert on Teams ... Don't @me

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

Thanks! I do like "BRIU" - never got the love it deserved. There are a couple of songs I think are a bit dubious, with the benefit of hindsight, so if I re-release it as part of my yearlong transferring to bandcamp process, I may drop them.
