Cur

Cur - You should listen to this whole fight as the optional challenge for this title was to make noise, or something like that. So naturally, that was title we entered, and, as expected, we got several "Everyone does noise better than you" comments from the peanut gallery. Aw, you just can't win so...

Big Disco

Big Disco - Blue called this our "My First Songfight" submission in the review thread. Blue used to be known as a terror in the review threads, and he tore WreckdoM a new, uh, rectum on more than one occasion. He wasn't the only one, of coarse, but he was often the most articulate and effective. We...

Secret Ceremony

Secret Ceremony - This is not the first nor will it be the last apology I'll be offering in this thread, but Hoogie Blue, if you somehow wind up reading this, I'm sorry. He offered to collab with us on this song, sent us some percussive noises and other stuff which we used, and again we never sent ...

Re: Bad Pick Up Lines (Shot Down Reviews)

The Midweeklings - I like your band name. I really like the female vocals. The male vocals are ok, it's a nice contrast but I definitely have a favorite of the two. You're both belting it out and I wish the song had a little more oomph to it. It's easy vibe, kinda outdoor music fest feel to it, tha...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

I'm with Steve now - A further advancement in my talking to myself technique, this was improv, first with the three people calling Richard, and then with the Richard track. so the pauses in the first track are just random lengths where I imagined how long I would need for my responses. I know it's ...

Re: Bad Pick Up Lines (Shot Down Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - Really solid musically but the vocals are bothering me. Awkward delivery that does not fit with the instrumentation. The two elements remain at odds with each other which is a shame as I do really dig the groove. Cookie Blue - I like the arrangement alot, and the recording s...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

if it's indulgent, you've earned the right, right? You put that nicely, I would've gone with "self absorbed" or "conceited". I've been meaning to write this stuff down for a while, using a public forum helps motivate me to keep going, and if anyone is interested and enjoys the read then that's doub...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Chainsaw - Always a fan of the chainsaw. So, this guy Isaac was friends with, Mike, came over and set up his drums in my living room. I don't know how they met, I really liked Mike and his girlfriend whose name escapes me, but they were nice, cool folks. So it was our first song ever to have live d...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Minister and man - So Red Mosquito asked us to collab, and I know when you usually do that there is some back and forth, but not in this case. He sent us all these cool noise sounds like that printer and tape and beeps and weird percussion and we used dang near everything he sent us, but never got ...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Baba Ganoush - I can hear the snappy jazz song I had in my mind when I wrote these lyrics. But snappy jazz was definitely beyond my capabilities as a singer, and well above what we could construct song wise, so instead we'd just get as close as we could and go weird with it. So I have mixed feeling...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Quentin Tarantino - I don't know why we didn't do "Dizzy Spells" or "Under the Wagon" both are much better titles. Ripe with possibilities. We would sit around and collectively decide. Sometime it came really easy and sometimes we mulled over it a lot. Colin was there when we decided on this one an...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

These are fun to read! Keep going! Thanks Sam! I'm really enjoying jogging the memories, too. WTF - First song ever to start with the phrase "Wispy turtle fart" That last repeating little sample is Colin giggling, that was some excellent sampling skills from the now well practiced Isaac. In fact, t...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Paperback Writer - I swear I had an idea for this song. I really did. I can't remember what it was, but it was there. And it didn't pan out. OK, I haven't actually started listening to this one yet. I haven't been looking forward to revisiting this one. I'm going to step away from the computer a mo...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Texas - It's true Colin was responsible for the backing track of "Upcoming Downtime" but that was unwitting participation, in reality, this was his first WreckdoM song. It's almost impossible to remember what it was first like working with Colin since we've done so much of it since. After the first...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

The Chair we share - And there goes all that voting momentum. So this was the week that SongFight came to Austin. We immediately told everybody upon the announcement that we would play, we had no idea how we would go about doing that, and completely failed to make a plan. So we didn't play. When I ...

Elvis in Space - So I can't do a very good Elvis impersonation but that doesn't stop me! As I recall a lot of folks got a kick out of this one, myself included. The bookend parts came first. We were discussing what to do in the middle and I have a very clear recollection of standing in the kitchen ...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

Say the word - This song was no overnight thing, we definitely worked on this several times throughout the week. I wanted Ike to sing the lyrics because I had no confidence in my abilities as a singer. Everything we did before this was talking or goofy not singing, "So Kind Stacey" was really as cl...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

So Kind, Stacey - I believe that Isaac was keeping Colin aware of WreckdoM while we were doing it. I'm not sure exactly when I met Colin officially, we figured out much later we'd met socially a few times. My earliest memory of him is him coming over with Steel Reserve, a malt liquor I had never ha...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

A Promise is a Promise - The idea behind this one is that I would record one half a conversation, making it up as I go along, and then record the second half while listening to the first half for the first time. After recording the first part Isaac liked what we had so much he wanted to leave it as...

Re: WreckdoM turns ten

There are so many possibilities - I've watched the movie Casino over and over, maybe more so than any other Scorsese film. It's not my favorite, I just find it extremely revisitable. I'd wanted to use those Pesci samples for a while. The other samples come from an educational cassette tape about ho...
