FAO board Musicians

Myself and a couple of friends are doing this

Record music in February, just because you can. Can be an EP or an album if you’re feeling brave

Anyone fancy it?

  • Me! I do!
  • I do not

This could be the push I need to do that EP about my favourite Netrunner card.

N.B. this is not a joke

Oh! It wasn’t because I’m not that clever, but now I will pretend it was and I am

Do it!

I might have my album finished in February but it would be disingenuous for me to claim it was made entirely in February

When I do eventually share on here it will get approx 1/10 of the likes i would get if I posted a cat picture.

Hmm

Not sure, one the one hand I have 197 unfinished tracks to work on just from 2020. On the other hand… it’s just a click to open a new Ableton project

That’s the spirit!

I’ve so much half finished stuff that I never will finish, and this would be a perfect opportunity to do this, but I’m not going to. It’s going to be all new

Why not? I’ve got a few songs that need doing stuff with, so I’ve signed up

I decided to sign up for five tracks, why did I do that? Set unreasonable goals and don’t achieve them, I guess

One song, three skits and an interlude

One song, two short but baffling ambient loops, two ‘field recordings’ (me walking around with my voice memo app on my phone sullying the true meaning of field recordings)

i have an ep of demos i’m working on that i could post up. i had such big plans for last year and they crumbled to dust, but my demos are real rough as hell things that i am not precious about. i have got 4 in the bag for my punk band but can’t record with F until march. now i’m doing another 4 for a second EP that i want to then send to pals (like @ma0sm in fact) to work up a bit with some mad arrangements and stuff, so i could push into that a lot more

Oh fuck! I am so bad at everything. Sorry!

And I do mean everything. I’ve been trying to write one work email for 90 minutes now

here’s something then, for you guys to like or hate

it’s a rough as fuck demo i did yesterday. i didn’t know how to change the time signature in the middle of a track so i had to write three movements then stitch them together amateurishly.

usual excuses. can’t sing loud in a flat for starters or i get in trouble. @stickboy when this is full band and recorded at f’s this is gonna be pretty big i think

lyrics

Summary

L’appel.

Do you remember when the whisky went straight to our feet

deck’n’it off the curb on the camberwell streets

One last hug and stumbling home from the venue

Then blacking out hard to looping DVD menus

All the false promises and hung consequences

Talking of loves but usually in past tenses

It wasn’t perfect by any means

But it was a scene

I’d go back

Just to fuck it up again

The heart I lacked

The arrogance the everything

Under No illusions

Regrets I barely knew them

Believe me

I’d go back to sinnin in the multitude

Dickhead hack, the ego and the attitude

One do-over

And I promise I’ll be over whatever this is

Putting on the charm pulling pints at the bar

then piling in the back of a cab driver’s car

Screaming out songs until the new cross inn

‘we’re loyal like brothers’ man, this is our hymn

Never irredeemable but too far from perfect

Never to blame but then I always deserved it

It wasn’t a buzz that we could ever sustain

But it was good pain

And I’d go back just to burn it down again

Load me up with kerosene and paraffin

Smoke and embers

Until I can’t remember

Being

Someone else that I can barely recognise

Two bad suits and nothin there behind the eyes

Dead and ferried

Onto the next bar where we’d never, ever stop

It’s setting the bomb to go off, when you like yourself or you fall in love

To bring you back down

(If you don’t see me around,

then hey that’s why)

It’s setting your watch to the tick

Of a helpful change so you bludgeon it quick and pour one to the ground

(If you don’t see me around then hey that’s why)

It’s learning the best for your art is when faculties are understaffed and your head goes on strike

(If you were worried about me

I’m sorry to say say that you’re right.)

It’s admitting that what you need, is a moving target, one that bleeds if you shoot it dead on

(If you were hoping that I am coping then you’re wrong.)

But I

Remember being the sacrament

Insofar as my blood was wine

And saying things that I never meant

But never calling them lies

I

Remember feeling rapturous

Hello My Name is Badge held high

Putting a pin in the why

(I’d go back just to fuck it up again)

(i’d go back just to fuck it up again)

Oh.

I’D GO BACK JUST TO FUCK IT UP AGAIN

PAY THE PRICE IN CREDIT AND A LOAN AGAIN

OUT OF BALANCE

NEVER SAYIN WISH I HAND’T

I’D GO BACK JUST TO FEEL THE STING AGAIN

THE WORST OF ME, NEVER TO BEGIN AGAIN

NEVER SOBER

NEVER GETTING OUT OF NOWHERE

IT IS WHAT IT …IS

i mean i did it literally yday so i was one day out man! JESUS CAPTAIN RULES.

It’s not that strict I don’t think. The thing on the sign up encourages you to go from scratch on Feb, but it’s not a rule, as such
