Wreckdom - The "passing cottage cheese" line was perhaps the most offensive and disturbing image I've ever heard in a song. It made my yeast rise.

Gone Phishing - reviews

Post by Paco Del Stinko »

Short fight, but enjoyable.

Abominominous - A boogie woogie blast. Loose, but nowhere near sloppy. A rocking public service announcement or advisory.

Fish Sausage - Good play on words. The rhythm is fun and I very much enjoy when the sub stuff comes in. It appears to stray off as it goes, ending abruptly (time, time) making me want to hear the beginning again. I do enjoy your voice.

Hostess Mostess - Nice and playful, not silly. Day old punks! Your voice is very nice, as are so many other elements of your music. Good arrangement.
King Arthur - This is great! That loopy key phrase and 'round the top and back under bass line are excellent. The guitar is quietly impressive also. Love the step up into the chorus. This is probably my favorite of yours, from this week. Good energy too.

Paco - The worst lead, done before the bass, probably EVER. I kind of like the main guitar part though.

Seamus Collective - I wish I could hippy dance, or any other kind of dance for that matter, as this would be fun to do so to. Nice spice of Zappa here and there. It may lose focus for a second or two, barely, but nice and groovy! Just right instrumentation.

UDAHL - I like the first riff best, but they keep on coming. Falls off a cliff at the end, but a short, fun ride.

Wave The Navel - Nice guitar playing and recording. Nice sounding voice too. I'm not hip to the bleep (huh?) Good progression and level of intensity.

WreckdoM - All of it's disturbing, yet enjoyable! Big, bold and brief. Does not make me want to go to any concert again.

Despite me proving again that I am a doofus, I enjoyed the music and thank all for sharing. I will vote for someone besides me prior to the deadline. See ya!

Abomindamominous – A - dimonaminous.You make me wish I really had a band.

Phish Sausage – A+
Only ‘cause I totally love this mix. Hate the vox, love the tunage. JOIN THE REVOLUTION – fock the radio; make your own damned music. Too short.

Mostess – A
Woohoo! OMG – this totally rocks. Heheh. Hahaha – beautiful. Voting for you this round.

His Highness - C
Totally thought this was about Grateful Dead ‘til later on. Not your best, not bad, either. Always love the guitar/keys you do.

Paco del Stinko – B+
Damn. Did you hit every fight? Makes me listen harder to those that did, because you had the detriment of less time allocated per entry. Totally cannot tell. Each listen so far has been quality; no apparent rush for time, nothing lacking. Good work. Oooh, nice wah-hy break. You’re another one of those focks that makes me wish I had a real band. Suck it. :p <-----jealous bitch.

Seamus Collective – B
Brang da Fonk.

UDAHL – A
Groove. Are all your tracks this fight live? Tight. This track is tops so far.

Wave the Navel – B+
Mmmm…nice, slow groove…sweet vocals. At last, an authentic reference to actual Phishing. You know where I *bleep*? Damn. Look out.

WreckdoM – C+
Hah! Lovely story. All kindsa balls, you. Love the reverse end.

DISCLAIMER: I forgot to mention. You will love and retain the Fish Sausage entry for this fight, despite its apparent brevity and quick-fix vocal track. Why? Because the Schumann Resonance so dictates. Ah, yes. My first official track including a binaural beat layer for subliminal "auto-diggin'it" purposes. Should be stimulating aurally, and comforting physically.

*Gottal love that aural stimulation.

Abominominous:

Keeper. Especially like the vocals on this one. I kinda
wanted the opening guitar riff to be longer... like, a
two-bar phrase instead of one bar 4x...

Fish Sausage:

The "fishers / fissures" pun is interesting, tho it depends on
having a lyric sheet to get across. Have to plead "not my
thing" on the music, it sounds like you accomplished what
you intended, just doesn't appeal to me...

Hostess Mostess:

Keeper, this is fun. Serious Graham Nash vibe going on there,
but that's okay with me. weird / cheered rhyme was great.

me:

I've always wanted to use the "orchestral drums" patch on my
synth, finally went ahead and did it, and then decided that it
was overwhelming the song, so I moved the drums all off to one
side. It either works or it doesn't...

Paco del Stinko:

Keeper. Love the music, perfect for the subject. Man, you play
some fine lead guitar.

Seamus Collective:

Keeper... "cold tweezer" ??? who let Zappa in the room?
I'm a sucker for all the "Phish the band" songs this week...

UDAHL:

So, okay, I turned on the winamp EQ and massively boosted the
bass and the top end and it started sounding cool... tho, on
this one, the vocals are still way too buried for me.

Wave the Navel:

Keeper... Like the music, it fits the story line well. Guitars
sound good, like the vocals.

WreckdoM:

Yay, WreckdoM makes me laugh. Cottage cheese indeed. Keep-o-matic!

Wave the Navel: What a day for a daydream, then the Beloved, G&G with basic beat, not too keen on the harmonic vox, but this is actually a really cool tune, I really like the tone of your voice, perfectually accentuated by your guitar playing, sing-a-long chorus to boot, bloody good work.
SEVEN AND A HALF POINTS

Paco del Stinko: I'm getting really fed up of reviewing paco del stinko with yet another corking bloody tune, can't you guys fuck up once in a while??
this is very TMK, does Furry Pedro know?? this has great ups and downs, the lead guitar line tends to weave its way around all the other instruments, then goes whoo hoo all on it's own. Great stuff!
EIGHT AND A HALF POINTS

UDAHL: Aaargh! yeaargh! sorry, this has a much better rhythm and the guitar breakdown, make this one of your better songfight album entries. actually really rather cool.
SEVEN AND A HALF POINTS

Fish Sausage: I love the vox drifting just under the beat here, then jumping up and going boo! you have a rather spooky voice, have you ever thought of doing some banshees covers?? not too keen on the abrupt endings though, generally top notch stuff as always!
EIGHT AND THREE EIGHTHS POINTS!!

The Seamus Collective: Good old fashioned bluesy-pub rock attack here, sort of Dave Emunds-ish with a touch of the Blockheads in there, nice atmosphere on the mumbling style vox, your voice carries without straining which is always good.
SEVEN AND NINE SIXTEENTHS POINTS

WreckdoM: Okay kids settle down now, we're gonna tell spooky stories then beat each other up?!?!
SIX POINTS (for curiosity value)

King Arthur: spanking intro Charles!!! this has a slightly different feel to it that i can't quite put my finger on, I'm not sure if the style suits your voice but I'm not turned off by it, I reckon this is gonna grow on me quite a lot.
SEVEN POINTS

Hostess Mostess: Just a little lighter than I'd expect from you guys, a touch 'Welcome back Kotter' (which isn't a bad thing) I really think you guys should do a complete Lovin' Spoonful tribute album, honestly!
SEVEN AND A BIT POINTS

Abominominous: Are you really trying to sound like Dave Vanian, this is really rather cool, the backing beat does tend to get a little negative with it's repetition, but another stonking rockin' tune from the house of ideas!
SEVEN AND A BIT MORE POINTS
