Influences: The Bad Idea Bears. And beer.
Hi folks! Thanks for stopping by.
I'm not planning to write any songs this February - my dad has just had a big operation, so I'll be putting my time and energy into his recovery instead. I hope to do some listening/commenting in spare moments.
In place of new EF songs, here are some songs from previous FAWMs and 50/90s that I've polished up a bit:
Happy FAWMing, everyone!
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Hi Jacqui! I stopped by seeking EF music, and just saw your bio. Best wishes to your dad! Sending love and strength to you both.
"Bloody" brilliant...haha. I'm glad the song will be stuck in your head. It's all part of the Subliminal Mind Program operation (SMPO).
So sorry to hear about your dad, I wish him a speedy recovery!
I've been shaking my watchlist hopefully, waiting for some EF songs to appear, but now I've read your bio and feel pretty selfish. Best wishes to you and your dad!
Hi Jacqui! Hope your father recovers well and that you can look after yourself as you look after him. It was great to listen to refined versions of some of my favourite songs of yours - 'If I Hate You' and 'Get This Started' are both in my iTunes Top 25 Most Played. So never stop making music!
Whoa just started listening to your album on bandcamp, it's really friggin rad! Your voice is from another planet. Thanks for listening to my sketches, you can find some tunes at thommccarthy.bandcamp.com. I can see you'll definitely be missed this year and may your father bounce back strong!
Best wishes to you and your family. You are missed.
Sending you positive vibes and prayers xx
Thanks for the nice comment 😀 Hope your dad makes a speedy recovery.
Oh no! No expendablefriend this year!
Hope your dad is well!
All the best wishes!
Sending a bunch of good vibes in your general direction.
I miss your writing in here.
oh no - just read your profile notes. I'm sending all my mental good vibes your dad's way
Hey, sending good vibes for a healthy recovery for your dad 😀
Thanks for checking out Christine. I'd totally be down for writing more like this but I have to get the right vocalist to do the job. My sister won't do it again (she says it's a bitch).
Hi there! Yes, just been in Sydney since October. It was going to be for a year but we are cutting it short due to the unexpectedness of life. I'll be here for the whole of fawm, though. At this rate I may even churn out fourteen scratchy uke demos on my phone!
Looking at your bio, I have to say all my very best wishes to your dad, I hope he has a speedy recovery.
I hope your father recovers smoothly!
Hello! I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, and I wish a speedy and safe recovery. I've remembered you from the last few years because your in-depth and sparkling commentary caught my eye, and your presence on this site is super respectable. I still listen to the EP you released last year, "Transitions," I really admire your talent.
It sucks that you won't be able to release anything new this year, but thank you for all that you've created and the positive energy you've given to FAWM. 😀
Hi friend! Kudos for supporting your family. I'll miss the tunes but I totally get it.
Sorry to hear about your dad, but glad it's a recovery process. 😀
That's a plus. 😀
Sure, the first year I've been back in awhile and you won't be posting!
Seriously, hope everything goes alright with you this month.
<3 and hovering. Can't wait to hear and marvel again this year.
Hope your Dad gets better soon. Have a wonderful FAWM!
And best wishes on you Dad's recovery.
Heya Jacqui, congrats on the new release. Ready, set, go!
Hey! Nice to see you here again! 😀
Hi! Guess I'd reply here.
We did indeed play on the same bill at Rugby Music Festival a couple years back. Cool to see you pop up! Found this through a friend thought I'd give it a go. Just read your bio - hope all the best to your Dad x
Will do my best, if you will - like it's possible for you to make something ugly! That said, a Metal Machine Music EF album is an intriguing proposition
Can't wait to see what your do this year!
No album plan -- this time I'm going to break my own rules and just have fun. I'll count these songs as a 17Q1 album's worth of songwriting but not release anything, just treat it as experiment and personal development, then back to serious output for Q2. I've only just finished and released 16Q4 which is the seventh of my 'create-a-soundsscape-and-a-unique-identity' efforts and I feel I've gotten the hang of it ok I can slack off this once ... 😀
Very special indeed (and not in a mean way)
Fingers crossed for your Dad!
Well hello there! Looking forward to your stuff as always 😀
I'm sorry to hear about your dad. I hope he makes a good recovery. Wishing you all the very best. Your album is ace, by the way.
Thank you! If you're not participating maybe I can get you to send me ideas and I'll pass them off as my own 😀
Hiya! Loving the new album. Hope your Dad makes a swift recovery!
Have you heard the band Ultimate Painting, btw? I've been listening to their new album quite a bit and they sometimes have melodies that remind me a bit of your stuff!
Sorry to hear you're not going to be around but naturally understandable in the circumstances. Already had listen to your bandcamp stuff though which will fill the gap. Best
Jacqui, my advice to you after FAWM 2015 where we had incredibly trying times: don't give up entirely acts of creativity even if care for your father is exhausting.
kicking-at-birds. Since you're an owl, does that make it worse? 😀 Seriously, sorry about your Dad. I hope he has a quick, and full recovery.
I knew you loved the the manticore, really! I shall endeavour to write equally irritating songs JUST FOR YOU!!
Your FAWM 2017 is a bit like my 2015. Prayers for you and your dad. Meanwhile go listen to Pinkshinyultrablast.
Thinking of you, wishing you much strength and your dad a speedy recovery to health and happiness!
I'll head over to your bandcamp site then.
Best of luck.
So sorry to hear about your dad. Yeah, I'm a bit too busy these days. If I ever pay my house off I'll just retire, stay home and write music all the time 😀
I just read your bio. By all means take care of your dad! I hope he has a speedy recovery.
Hey! What did the little birds do to you? 😀
Yeah, right, 'just polished up' ... sounds effortlessly classy though ...
Make the most of everything.
Sending you lots of love EF; all the best to your dad! <3
Love your album. Best wishes for your dad's recovery!
Always great to see you... and fresh off a fantastic new album too! Which means it is time to get busy. Annnnndddddddd go! 😀
...and there you are! Hello!
Ah well - I suppose I'll just have to listen to your new album instead! 😀
Get well soon - totally IN(un?)expendable dad.
😀 <3 😀
Oh, I've just read the bio. Thanks for stopping by, and all the best to your dad!
I respect your choice to sit out this FAWM Jacqui, but will miss your always stellar output!
Ahh Jacqui just read your bio. I congratulate you on fine life choices, go spend good time with your folks.. xxx
Word to thine face
