I reckon this means I'm in, with despair as my co-pilot

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

I was just playing these songs while cooking dinner (roast pumpkin, olives, and goat cheese on a bed of baby spinach; if you care), and when Balance Lost came on, my daughter said “did this one win? Because it should”

‘nuff said.

Re: My Life

Last night I dreamed that the optional challenge for the next fight was ‘an actual bee sting’ and all the songs had some top-shelf screaming and swearing.

It was a good dream

Enjoy my sub-Archers of Loaf noisefest.
Oh, I will indeed!

I have nothing to submit this week, but if you want I can send photos of my repainted bathroom and freshly mown lawn?

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

gizo vs. the 17,455: I don't love the sound of that distorted guitar lead, it seems abrasive yet also strangely smol, so it's kind of distracting on the whole (particularly a few notes you hit that seemed accidental) although I think the way it works with the other guitar is cool in theory. I do re...

Re: You're making me uncomfortable... (Personal Space Reviews)

Thanks all for the kind words - I'm glad you found some joy in my Personal Space. I've got to pay credit to my beloved, who took a break from her Masters study to scream into the mic with me.

Re: My Life

Heck of a weekend. Went to TarraWarra Gallery to view the Archibalds . Some great pieces, and in particular i enjoyed David Darcy's "Tjuparntarri - women's business", Clara Adolphs' "Rosemary Laing and Geoff Kleem (in their garden)" which used an absence of paint to provide highlights in a wonderful...

Big fan of cooking here. Quite good at it as well, if I do say so myself.
I can verify this statement. Crump is indeed a Good Cooker

Re: ‘Decent’ cheap gear guides?

Thanks everyone - especially Crumpart for stepping in to explain me a little more for everyone. I guess the driver of this whole thing was when I went to record a bassline for Personal Space, and realised I had no way of getting that signal into my laptop. So yeah, an audio interface looks like the ...

‘Decent’ cheap gear guides?

I’m skipping right to the end - I need microphones for voices and guitars, and a way to get analogue sounds (like electric guitars and weird old microphones) out of their 6mm or 3.5mm (or 1/4” and 1/8”, if you please) plugs into a USB port so I can record them. So, apart from the Pyle that Ken poste...

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

gizo vs. the 17,455 - I really like the lo-fi acoustic guitar sound, and the general weary vibe to the vocal reminds me of the first Wheat album (I love Wheat). The distorted guitar kinda sinks this one for me though, it has a tone that isn't particularly pleasant and just seems to do its own thing...

PERSONAL SPACE! by gizo I just can't think with all this noise going on all of the phone calls and the vocal chum it’s like I’m living on a human farm PERSONAL SPACE! PERSONAL SPACE! I relocated your entire workplace and you responded with a slap in my face is it any wonder that I’m feeling debased?...

I'm in, and I'm pretty sure that I've ended up with something completely unlike Black Flag, but you'll survive.

Re: You must respect it (Personal Space prefight)

I'm sure you won't sound "like a tired Mark Seymour lyric" though, crump.

And likewise, I'm sure my Black Flag efforts will end up sounding like something totally different (especially when I discovered I had no tools to plug my guitar & bass into the laptop).

I'm trying to channel Black Flag, which has been an interesting journey so far. It'll be interesting to see where it ends up.

There's a punchline somewhere in between this title and the optional challenge.
