Death & the Maiden 07.06.2008 06:41 AM

I'd record my music and set up a Myspace but Audacity doesn't want to cooperate.

Last night I rpetty much locked myself into being in a band I had never heard.

Big mistake... they sound like a worse version of Cat Butt (band)

So yeah I have that to look forward to...

samuel 07.09.2008 12:39 PM

recorded output will be limited for awhile due to a very bad finger injury

An excellent cover version, Cantankers - I always love covers which aren't simply straightforward retellings of the original. You original songs are really enjoyable too - very narcotic and woozy, if that's not too cliched a thing to say.

That shouldn't be a terrible experience. It'll teach you how to deal with bad musicians, and make working with good musicians a lot easier. (Though that has it's own challenges, as well.) Make the best of it, and remember you can leave whenever you want to, even if they're friends. They'll get over it.

thank you baby melly
always nice to hear good things

i have a plan
when i get back to new york i'm going to gather up a few of my musically competent cohorts and we're going to play and play and play and then one day, when we get it together enough, we're going to play a live show and cover dark side of the moon in its entirety (if i can find someone who can sing great gig in the sky because i sure as fuck can't).

pompousity at it's best.

Haha yeah thanks. I never thought of it like that.
Its one of those bands where no one has an ounce of charisma

Every good band has to have at least one member that people point to and say, "Fuck, s/he's awesome." If they can't be charismatic, that becomes your job. And if you're serious about being in a band that's a good position to be comfortable enough to take on. I mean don't be a cocky bastard, but you know. Be the band you want to see.

Unless you're the drummer. Then you might have a problem.

Cantankerous 07.09.2008 11:00 PM

unfortunately i am not at all charismatic and terrible at being interviewed. also terribly shy in front of video cameras. you won't see me being interviewed on youtube anytime soon.

acousticrock87 07.09.2008 11:09 PM

If I could find more people to actually start a band with, that's something I would work on. I'm afraid to get on stage, but if I had a group to support me, I could do it. I can do it for acting stuff, and I'm scared to death until I get up there.

I think being shit-crazy on stage combined with really shy off stage is a great image, and very doable for shy people, since when you get used to the stage you can let loose a lot more than "real life".

Everyneurotic 07.09.2008 11:11 PM

it's official, monosodic's first ever gig will happen on jul. 31

 



anyone from mexico reading, there's also going to be a surprise live set of I/C/O/C in collaboration wation with the new parallelogrammers.

i'm expecting to finish monosodic's gno ep pretty soon and then the recording of pubic mohawk will start.

there's tons of I/C/O/C cd-rs that will be released in the coming months.

Cantankerous 07.09.2008 11:14 PM

for me, playing to an audience on stage with a band is nothing. they may as well not even be there, there's no real emotional connection (again, this is just me) and there's less pressure on you as an individual, even if you're the so called "leader" because there are other people up there with you to lighten the load..it's way harder for me to just sit and play and sing by myself to one person or five people, no matter how well or how long i've known them.


if i were to be interviewed in a group setting with a band i would just let someone else do most of the talking because i have a problem with talking about my work. i can't listen to it after i finish it either. it would be like watching myself act.

That's true. In fact, the more I know someone the harder it is for me to perform in front of them.

i tried to play for my mom once and i just couldn't. i don't know how else to put it, i just can't.

acousticrock87 07.09.2008 11:28 PM

Yep. I can't sing in front of my parents. At all. Ever.

Cantankerous 07.09.2008 11:31 PM

i'm having an argument about whether i will be able to succeed in the music business.


hahaha.

some people don't realise what a manipulative, backstabbing hosebeast i can be.

intelligence + tenacity + creativity = success.

acousticrock87 07.09.2008 11:36 PM

Haha. I wish I had the tenacity. I've about given up on that for myself, but I still try. I think I waited to long to get serious about it. Everyone I know is all college and stuff, now. Business majors. Fuck that. The only guy I've played with who went in the right direction disappeared off the face of the planet. For all know he's dead.

Cantankerous 07.09.2008 11:42 PM

speaking of tenacity.
if this doesn't describe me perfectly. i don't know what would. jeebus.
