Re: One ringydingy, two ringydingy...prefight

You know, when thinking about this title in the car on the way home one of the first things that sprung to mind was boxing.

So: given the discussion that has transpired elsewhere on these boards, I hope to hear a number of tracks that centrally feature backyard wrestling, okay?

Re: Back to the drawing board (Well, reviews)

Cock thanks you all for your support. I think we expected it to be positively received, but not so overwhelmingly -- we're glad people liked it. I apologize for the slackjob on reviews -- I'm going to try to double back in coming days. Particular standouts for me were Jon's tune and The Weakest Suit...

Re: Back to the drawing board (Well, reviews)

Jon Eric & Friends ... Whoever suggested the keyboard deserves a cookie. That would be Ujn. He mentioned that it needed some honky-tonk piano, and I mentioned that I'd been considering the idea myself. He was a lot more enthusiastic about it than I was, though, so I went ahead and recorded it. *Cou...

Jan's advice is the best, of course.

Barring that, autotune is a wonderful thing. It won't help you with the emotional impact of your delivery. But at least you'll hit the right notes. :)

Re: Dear Jury: Vote not guilty; I'll pay you! /Acquitted Reviews

My review philosophy: 1. You probably listen to music, and therefore know where your song could use improvement in regards to mixing, levels, guitar tone, etc. I'll just skip that bit. 2. We all make artistic decisions that will alienate a portion of our audience. If you alienate me knowingly, ignor...

I WAS PART OF : IRC BFF - I did the percussion. I sampled melons, carrots, lotus root and some sort of japanese radish that wasn't daikon. And then lined up about 70 samples of the above vegetables pretty like. Then signboy affected it. Jon Eric and friends - I was a friend. I played the drumseses. ...

Yeah it looks like Ujn and I will be in. In celebration of getting on the wagon we decided to ditch the synths and start a STRAIGHT EDGE HARDCORE band. Assuming no one falls off between now and Saturday, of course. In deference to your eardrums its got a poppy, Chthonic kinda feel in the middle. But...

Wow, what another another great batch of songs! Playing "if I were a judge" my top five would be: 1. Howl Down the Chimney. 2. WreckdoM. 3. Frankie Big Face. 4. Tiny Robots. 5. Nigel Clements. Rounding out the top ten in alphabetical order would be Paco, Quimby, RG, Ross, and Signboy. As some of you...

But I'd like to call particular attention to a couple of my favorites in the fight (round?). First, the much under-appreciated Howl Down the Chimney. Tep, that was sheer genius my f...

ROUND ONE of the NUR EIN starts now! Song must include 2 verses, a chorus, a repetition of the chorus and a solo. in that order? Seriously though, we were talking about this on IRC. I thought the chorus needed to be repeated twice in a row (i.e. the end of the cock track). The consensus was that wa...

Re: Nur Ein IV: Round Zero

I was too busy seeing she called out 1983, as that is exactly what reve said. :P Yeah. "1983 sound" was an explicit goal this time around. So much so that I wanted to avoid using synthesizers developed after 1983. But somehow a JX10 (c. 1986) did crawl in there towards the end. STYLOPHONE!!! ...thr...
