:) Thank you guys.

Sombody's pinned it. Is it an honour to have a thread pinned? :lol:

I did that - this is like the BC 'sounds from the vaults' thread - some of us have been a little longer than others and it's a great way to show off what we've all been up to over the years and how a commitment to playing an instrument can bring years of satisfaction - you're never to old to rock and roll right people?

Cheers

Mike

PS I'll dig out some more old crap at some point too! :)

Haha! Me too :) Absolutely dread! My first attempts at writing lyrics and singing my own songs. f***ing risible! If I put 'em on here would I ever be able to live with myself? :)

There is some really classy stuff on here, from Nige's guitar playing to Bilbo's little surprise. Thisnameistaken, Paul h's stuff, Walman, Urb, EH, Jase Linus27 and Mep, Burritobass, (is this becoming like an Oscars speech :) :) ), and Wil - so much variety and talent that show's what a truly versatile bunch we are.

OK, I've dug out a couple of older ones from 1982 and 1984 respectively:

God Slot - an anti organised religion rant from Sign Language
Love and War - involving me having a go at rudimentary slap and string tapping on a fretless, from Sign Language again.

And one from a couple of years ago, unfinished as it's bloody hard work - Orcastrated - a go at.... orchestration.

I can't pretend I like either to be perfectly frank. The first is great though considering the ages involved, and the era :) The second is just something I can never get on with, cello transcribed for electric bass. Aside from the odd timing issue, you play it really well though. I just don't dig on solo bass so I'm not the right person to comment, sorry :)

That's ok. The first song was from my first proper recording session and considering the ages involved it stands up well. Maybe you would like the other 2 songs from that session, although most like this one. The second was a recent recording, which is more of an exercise, rather than something to listen to, as the fingering is quite tricky and there are some big stretches needed for the 3rd section. I went for the 2 extremes to go with the original idea of your thread, which is looking and sounding good. As with most people I have stacks of recordings and to choose 2 is not easy, even with your original old & new idea.

I'll play...

Somewhere, in a box, probably in Somerset I have a recording of possibly my second or third time of 'playing' bass. If it turns up, I'll see what I can do...

However, for the moment, these will have to suffice:

Exhibit A - an instrumental take on a Robin Trower staple from late 1982 or early 1983 (probably about 6 months into playing):
Day Of The Eagle

Exhibit B - from the 3rd of March this year at the Coach & Horses Jam in Leyton High Road:
Too Many Drivers

I'm going to buck the trend now by posting some godawful sh*te. :) But hey, it's all in the spirit of the thread.

This is from my first band, Russell. Truly a sound of its time (written in 1997, recorded in 1998), it's a bunch of teenagers still figuring out how to play and having a good time doing it. I'd never even touched a bass at this point. I'm on electric guitar (playing all the Oasis-alike lead bits), backing vocals and piano. We were inexplicably quite popular in Harrogate at the time.

Around the same time, I was experimenting at home with a Korg synth module and a PC. The Brian Eno influence is pretty transparent, I think: Vitrif, from 1998ish. (IIRC, that track's kind of palindromic -- each part of the texture enters in a certain order, and leaves again in reverse order at the end.) I have hours and hours of stuff like that.

Fast-forward to 2007, and the last bit of recording I did (before kids and life started getting in the way) with the previous incarnation of my ongoing project with my friend Tim. Yes, I'm actually playing bass on this one: the delightfully-titled Wave of Sh*t. It was a rushed recording in the Newcastle University studios, and we never got it sounding quite right. The vocals were only a guide, and the drums are too compressed and gated. Ho hum. The drummer left just after we recorded this, so we just left it as was. :)

Should be doing some recording in the next few months with a singer-songwriter I've been working with, so I might have something to add in the new year!

Here's my first recording on bass, but since it was made last week I'm going to claim it doubles as both my earliest and most recent.

It's our very own alt southern rock Christmas number - Enjoy ;-)

Great track, reminds me of early Saxon (as does the other track) which I suppose was contemporary at the time.

From 1994 here's some Old Scratch, basically we improvised pretty much everything except the song titles, which got progressively more awkward to make things hard for our vocalist reading set-lists at gigs. With that in mind, I present

We still play the first song (And i know the recording is dire) but a totally rewritten version, that prompts the use of a fuzz, envelope and wah for me so it's much more fun.

Wicked idea, I like it.

My Golden Mouldy is "Radio Scum" - a hideously hilarious *radio jingle* I created for a college assignment many years ago. My mate Tom and I had masses of fun recording this on a 4-track in my Mum's kitchen in Penzance. Shame we forgot about any kind of click-track - Ben the drummer had to guess when to come in. You can't tell though, honest. The offending 4-string is my old Fender Wazz (a Mexican Jazz cunningly adorned with the red "W" sticker from a VHS tape) through a Marshall B150 "cube of vom".

And "Occupy" is my something new. It's a London Afrobeat Collective tune, recorded earlier this year. You can find it on iTunes and Spotify too, if you're not a Soundclouder. I used my Warwick Streamer Stage II and a Line6 M9 for this, mic'd and DI'd. Still really pleased with that low-mid growl - it's the first tune I recorded with my Warwick (having wanted one since 1998).
