Re: You're looking a little flat (Check Your Pressure prefight)

I will not finish this. Haven't even started on lyrics. Posting what I got so far to prevent myself from being tempted to use any of it in a later fight.

Looks like I forgot to come back here and admit publicly that "Custom Casiotone Creations" was me.

Re: Beware of sexual cannibalism (Praying Mantis prefight)

Back in the early 90s Zoom DJ'ed the wedding reception for a friend, and the first song he played was Don Dixon's "Praying Mantis". He meant well, it was all done in good fun, but it was still (arguably) a little tacky. On the other hand, it was memorable (I guess it's the only thing I re...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

This is what I had been working on for "Bottle Neck", but then I decided to go a different direction so this becomes a standalone track. (No, it is not named after Dee Dee Ramone. My daughter's name starts with D so I call her that) https://soundcloud.com/flvxxvmflorvm/deedees-dream

This song features liberal use of the Proco RAT(tm) distortion pedal, in accordance with the song title.

What did you use for bass guitar?


There's no bass, just one of the 5 guitars playing everything in unison has an octave shifter applied to it.

My entry is clearly not actually recorded live but I tried to remain faithful to the spirit of the thing by writing and recording it all very quickly while my ladyfriend watched. Also, I was drunk.

Re: It's My Battle and I'll Cry If I Want To (REVIEWS)

Confession: my live recording is fake. I was thinking of getting out to an open mic, but I was too lazy, I just set up a "live in the studio" situation with vocals and guitar, and then slapped some reverb on it. The lyrics were written in about 5 minutes.

Re: For crying out loud - write a song! (prefight)

My song was written very hurriedly last night, and it shows. I basically got stoned and wrote a song by looking at objects around the room (such as the programming books "Lex and Yacc" and "Sed and Awk" from O'Reilly and Associates) while I played G, D, C, D.

Re: Oops, we did it again (pre-fight)

I threw down some music last night but decided not to use it and take a different direction. Figured I'd spam up the prefight thread with it.

I'm still in but my song isn't going to be anything like this.

Berkely Social Scene: great drums however you recorded them, love the vibe that the keyboards lends this. not sure how I feel about the distorted power chords that come in around 0:51, it's a bit harsh for this mellow song, but OTOH its kinda buried so it doesn't matter much... the guitar solo at 2:...

In.

My song is going to be about drinking at various establishments, one of which is "sophisticated cocktails at the Phyllis Wheatley Club".
