Thanks @PaulAds  :) I have it. Shame I can hear the guitars quietly in the mic bleed. Will need to try to tune that out when it comes to writing a song. PS was that you popping up in my bandcamp stats?

yes...guilty as charged, m'lud

yeah...it's dirty and spill-y, a little chaotic and gloriously lo-fi.

I reckon if you write something noisy in "E" - it'll be fine  :P

Why not, I'll give the drum track a listen and if anything comes to me I'll give it a go.
Do we have to stick rigidly to the track as given, or can we mess with it?  :D

Hmm. I don't play in E and I don't do noise. This is a far bigger challenge than you'll ever know :p

I'm easy with however anyone wanted to do it. With the exception of the intro and the breakdown...it's pretty straight-forward...it might not be too easy to cut and paste sections...but I just followed the original song structure. If you have a verse and a chorus...you're laughing, I reckon.

Excellent! Jolly good show  :)

Do we have enough interested to put a new thread announcing our intentions?

Give it a decent time frame...say the end of May? or the end of June?

It’ll be good to have to work to a deadline I think.

Thoughts welcome.

End of May if there's going to be a summer one too I reckon. I'll be pushed but what the hell!

I also think - for competitions generally - that the songs should all be posted within a week period say so that it's not all stretched out over a month or so....people lose focus and interest.....so i suggest end of May, songs to not be posted until the week leading up to that date.....but I'm only a pleb on here so I've got no authority...you're the boss of this one.

Good to see the big boys joining in!
Take it easy.

You can check my stuff out here. Mini-album getting bigger slowly. Free download if you're poorer than me.

any good @tone ?

You got it in the original format & sample rate you recorded in? (WAV/AIFF or any other lossless format)

I just ripped it from youtube as an mp3...I didn't think it was worth converting it to a higher quality format.

It seemed nice and yucky to me. I am an old punk at heart  ::)

I’m already getting unhealthily into this - in the spirit of punk I say give extra points for looseness and kamikazeness and let’s not hang around for months...
