Good stuff Wilse.

Shining Star:-
Kind of James meets Stone Roses meets U2 meets Half Man Half Biscuit.

Out of Sight:-
Add the Charlatans to that mix. :-)

Demons:-
Reminds me of someone, but I can't think who right now.

Euphonia:-
Very '89. :-D

Aye, top marks. Although I acutally misread "Euphonia" as "Euphoria" and thought, "by 'eck, that's not yer standard clubby euphoria stuff..." :-D

@mdma:

Bloody hell! A whole thread dedicated to us!
Cheers n' that! :pint:

We're still tweeking the songs but thank you very much for taking the
time to listen.

We should have some more songs up there over the next few weeks too.

And "very '89" is possibly the best compliment you could give me. ;-)

@Karlos:

Aye, I'm thinking of changing the name of it.

On the other hand, the lyric is actually about someone on this 'ere
website taking something the wrong way so maybe it's a good sign that
you misread it. :-D

I should also point out that my A1200, A1 and Pegasos were all
involved in the writing and recording of these songs, although final
mixes were done on a dedicated 16 track recorder.

again, thanks for listening - much appreciated.

Actually, '90 would probably be my favourite, although Strings of Life came out in '87. :-D

PS - I just uploaded tweeked versions of Euphonia & Out of Sight. Should be available for download anytime now....

Cheers,

@PMC:

Thank you, although I should point out that mdma is making it appear
far better than it is.
(Not that I'm complaining. :-D)

There's a bit of a problem with the upload of two tracks just now so
only two up there at the moment.

I'll let you know when it's resolved.


Cheers,

Finally had to delete the two tracks and upload them again but it's
fixed now.

Enjoy!
(or wonder "why am I listening to this pish?" ;-))

BTW, anyone seen Chris lately?
I'd like to hear his opinion.

Oh, and Wain?

Time for a brutally honest glaswegian opinion....


Just listened to all four tracks, i liked Shining Star and Demons but thought Out of Site and Euphonia were naff.

Out of Site and Euphonia would probably go down well at the Art School though, dunno about Soundhaus as i've never been but i guess you'll have a good idea.

Regardless its better than all the bland indy pish and emo {bleep} ive been hearing from the rest of the local bands.

-edit-

Shining star kinda reminds me of the smashing pumpkins.

@Turambar:

Smashing Pumpkins, eh? :-D
(never really liked them personally but then, I never really listened
to them...)

Euphonia would probably have gone down well at Chakra, the sadly
demised Soundhaus night. Out of sight - probably not, although I did
play quite a lot of guitar based records when I played there, so you
never know. Probably wouldn't have had the bottle to try it.

I did once play another of our tracks at Chakra. It was an
instrumental track of a fairly housey nature and the dance floor liked
it, which was one of the best feelings I've ever had whilst DJ-ing.
Kind of a, "Check all these mad punters going nuts for my tune!" type
thing. :-D

I haven't been to the Art School for about two years so am completely
out of the loop about what's on there.
They did used to run a stonikngly good hip-hop night on a Thursday but
that was even further back.

Anyway, thanks very much for listening and letting me know.
'Tis truly appreciated.


Cheers. :pint:

I thinks its mainly the vocals remind of the track "today" or maybe im just tired. Any particular reason Chakra is gone? I had considered attending once or twice but could never persuade any of my mates.

@Turambar:

I'll need to check out that track.
One thing that may or may not have made a difference is that the
vocals on Demons & Shining Star are by my mate Boxer, who is the best
singer in the band by a country mile.

Chakra ended for a combination of reasons but it was *probably* for
the best. It had been going for over four years and basically ran it's
course. Very few clubs last even that long.

I still absolutely loved it but some of the regulars were beiginning
to get a wee bit bored with it. On top of that it was very stressfull
for Carole, who pretty much organised it, and I think she'd had
enough.

What type of thing do you like to dance to when you're out?
We have a new night starting in March and I like to play quite a
range of stuff, provided I'm given that freedom.(Not always the case.)
You never know, might be something there for you.
;-)

-EDIT-
Just noticed your sig. - I played that at Chakra one night. Great
laugh. :lol:
