Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

Boffo Yux Dudes - I like the harmonica. Not much else. It doesn’t sound like you guys are trying. Hmm... I liked the harmonica as well. I know we went through several vocal versions - Tom Waits and Leon Redbonesque versions kinda fell flat. And we stripped the sound down to somthing very simple to ...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

Bram Tant Bram finds his guitar. Nice riff. Not the best choice to have the drums in stereo, and pan the vocals and guitar full L/R. You have some passion in the lyrics, but it's overmodulating the mic. Good effort. "finds his guitar" ? I always find my guitar, since it's the basis of my music. :P ...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

I will get to reviews later but some idle comments: Boffo Yux Dudes: These are quite possibly the worst lyrics I have ever heard in my life. Give yourself an uppercut. I liked you better when you sounded like me. Someone got it. Bravo! You can't come up with lyrics that bad without a few rough draf...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

Round 1 was a very strong batch of songs. Impressive. It's going to be tough for the judges to choose as we go along with this many good players in the mix. Here are a few thoughts on some of the entries... Abbott & Hines Liked the piano and lyrics for this one. You're making progress. There still n...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Zero

I thought that was the case. We usually toss out the first few ideas on a challenge as the obvious path others will take, and go down a different way. We might lose points on being obtuse, but gain them for originality. Plus I'd rather try to plow some new ground if possible.

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Zero

I had a quick technical question - I thought the song title didn't have to be in the song lyrics, but the subject matter needed to be addressed as well as the challenge. Am I off in this assumption?

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Zero

Niv -

I think you missed our earlier post. Autotrophs are basically clones. So they are all 'First Blood' relations. We didn't want to do the Vampire/liquid theme, so we went that way. Zig instead of Zag. Might not have been clear, but the title and challenge was met.

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Zero

Last batch of thoughts on Round 0 songs Manhattan Glutton - Good Guitar work. Flowed very nicely with the transition into the bridge. Solid effort. Merisan - A pleasant surprise - a nice twist on the vampire theme turning it into a fetish. The guitar and accordion work very well together. In my top ...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Zero

Here's a few thoughts on songs so far, since others are putting their 2 cents in. More to come. JoAnn Abbott and Caleb Hines - Interesting piano ballad. I like the counterpoint between your voices. Not something that I'll keep in heavy rotation on the iPod, but it's a solid effort. Adamadamant - I k...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Zero

Thanks, Generic - We had numerous issues, and those fly in parts had some fun integrating when I sent them to Al in Chicago. Gotta love making music across time zones. The thought process behind the 'First Blood' was that autotrophs are basically clones of each other, and 'First Blood' relations. It...

Re: Nur Ein VI

First we tried Masters of Song Fu. Then we joined SpinTunes. Next was Gift of Music. The Boffo Yux Dudes now toss their hat in the ring for Nur Ein. Blame Spin and Niveous for the carnage that will result. A word of warning. We've been dead last (Or close to it) in every round we've entered. So, of ...

Re: The 8th Annual Gift of Music

Hmm.. I didn't see the Boffo Yux Dudes song up there, so I resent it. Might have gotten lost in the either or something. There's gotta be a Banana Phone up there!

Re: The 8th Annual Gift of Music

Boffo Yux Dudes are in - tho if we knew there was an extension, we would have delayed again as much as possible.

Looking forward to checking the tunes out!
