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).

Love the LAC track mate! Great number, love the bass tone - I also use a Streamer, with a POD X3 LIVE. BOOOOOOOM!!

Three tracks from old(ish) to new, 1998, 2004 and 2012. The first two are tunes by my old band, the last is one of the band's old song which I played on for another artist.


https://soundcloud.c...ethingoldandnew

The first track I suspect was my old Stringray 5 plugged direct into the desk. The second played on an early 80s '57 reissue P-Bass (maple board) DI and Mic'd through an SWR SM400 and Henry 8x8. The last was a Sadowsky, rosewood board P-bass through a vintage Pultec EQ and into the desk.

Enjoy

Really good work mate. I like the middle one best, but the last one is very good indeed but needed a more sensitive mix for me, it's too full and loses punch and vocal definition. But really bloody good!

Yep, it's that sound Eastern European record companies seems to love. A bit like when Trevor Horn did that Tatu record with those two Russian girls. You couldn't fit anything else in the mix!

Sadly (more probably luckily) I haven't got any of the old late 70s early 80s tapes and I haven't seen any the former band members for over 25 years so I'll have to go wth my first recording after coming out of retirement.

Here's the only track I can just about bear to listen to from the previous band Magic Ship that all three Jetsonics were in before a bloody coup d'etat in 2009. There's a lot of out of tune out of time awful Americana guff on that 2008 LP. This somehow made it onto the cover mount CD of Classic Rock mag though.



Here's the title track fom the last EP we did. I'm a million times more comfortable with what we're doing now.

Even if it makes you cringe now, that's actually not a bad cover. I do like the 1 audience member in the front headbanging :D

Definitely an improvement. Vocalist's voice is really good on both though.
Based in NW London.

I'm never embarassed about stuff I used to do, however bizare it may seem looking back on it. I think the guy at the front was one of our mates who wanted to be in the band...

Makes me laugh to think of how serious we used to take it all.

I'm convinced that old Status Energy made an apperance in the for sale section last week as well... small world...

My band Definition Of MadMen has a new CD/EP.

Posted Image



Four songs. Two of them are originals.
I used the trusted combination of the Ampeg V4B plus my Gibson Les Paul Bass.
But I dialed in a bit more grit on the Basscreamer.

this is my offering, it was the first song i ever wrote and attempted to record.

Summer Days i wrote in 2007 to get over a break up, and recorded it direct with an old squier strat (which i still have) and an old zoom multi track deck (which i still have), all very very rough

so this year i recorded Summer Days 2013 in a couple of hours earlier this year, and whilst its not perfect, it gives the song more body and the feel i intended when i wrote it, but was never able until recently to perform.

really shows how far i have come as a musician and engineer i think. thought you guys may like it

Old: Dirty Movies, not my first band but the oldest I have access to without a good rummage through my boxed up belongings (I'm in the middle of moving). This was a bit of a tongue in cheek band which me (bass) and my cousin (singer) started with an old school friend of his on guitar. There's questionable/comedy lyrics and cheesey EVH guitar solos at times but it was great fun at the time.
http://www.broadjam....34024&play=true

New: Alpha Male Tea Party, my last band. I recorded all the parts for this EP shortly before leaving a while back. They finally got around to releasing it a couple of months ago and are still going with a new bassist. It's kind of "mathy" stuff but again not taking itself too seriously. It's also far more technically evolved than the stuff I used to play.

Hi
the electric folk band I'm in, Beware This Boy, have just made our first ever video -


We did it at Charborough studio in Ascot, where they do it as a live take (well, 9 takes actually), and I'm really pleased with it. My bass never sounded like that before!
