Re: Song Fight Live 2021

For reference: I will be traveling in the UK for these dates, so I will not be able to MC. I'll try to put together a set of some kind though.

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

An irrelevant question I should have asked Blue years ago but I never did - someone might know… is Blue his real name? Blue is a very common nickname in Aus for people with red hair. I know lots of “Blues”. And it is now quite a common name for young kids - if their dads were “blues”. I don’t recal...

Remember Song Skirmishes? For that matter I think he might have been behind those too!
That was me. I ran and hosted a few, and I think maybe Jon Eric took over from there.

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

This is terrible news. Blue's relentless, brutal criticism is what drove me to improve for years. He was never out of line with his comments, and he certainly wasn't wrong. I believe I got a "this isn't so bad" from him eventually, and I'm still buzzing on that, 15 years later. Meeting him in SFL Au...

I can co-host a night again if there's a need. Now that I have actual gainful employment, I don't know that I'll be able to contend with Glenn on content again. Long may he reign.

Re: SpinTunes 17 Results

Congrats to Also in Blue - very well deserved! For me, this was creatively exhausting, and I can't imagine doing this at twice the pace a la Nur Ein. Huge thanks to Micah and the judges for slogging through this. Congrats to all the other contestants, and thanks to all of you for sharing some great ...

Re: It packs a wallop (Spiked Punch prefight)

Title and challenge lend themselves to the faux irish bullshit I used to sling around here. If I wasn't exhausted from Spintunes I might join in. Maybe I will anyway.

Re: SpinTunes 17 Round 2 Challenge

Mine's coming along ok. Had to redo a lot of the arrangement, as it unintentionally was sounding very much like the Godfather theme 🤦‍♂️

Also trying some things musically outside my comfort zone, so I look forward to being on the cut list next week 😎

Re: SpinTunes 17 Round 1 RESULTS

Holy shit, did not expect that. Would have been happy sneaking by in the 20's. Congrats to all who made it into round 2. Very sad to see the cut list - I hope you all submit shadow songs and find a way back in to kick my ass.

Submitted yesterday. First time doing vocals from the newly-treated closet booth. Controlling pro tools wirelessly via tablet feels like some star trek shit.

Re: You can only avoid (Potential Consequences reviews)

Gave a quick skim through the songs. Not really feeling this fight. Cool sounds from Here, Atticus , though I wish it developed more. Really strong entry from Brother Baker , though I have loads of nitpicks, like how the bass sound is all wrong for the genre. Generally you'd want a picked, growly so...

Re: Hallelujah chorus

It's been nearly 20 years since I performed this, but if you need another bass I may be able to contribute. Just the chorus and not the whole Messiah, right?

Re: Instant Band: Song Fight Edition

My thought was that the group would make that decision rather than it be assigned, or are you suggesting it is a role in addition to the others? Even when we did this in person, someone eventually had to take the lead and get the group working together. No, but it's good to explicitly acknowledge o...

Re: Instant Band: Song Fight Edition

Having recently done Frankensong, I can say that having a 'project manager' is extremely useful . Pick someone in the group you can all agree has the authority to make quick decisions to get the song done on time without anyone's feelings getting hurt. Set up a schedule and enforce it eg: lyrics and...
