Apologies - I'm busy with university stuff and am undergoing a gender transition...

...so am way behind on songs, comments, and thankyous. Consider this a heartfelt thank you! xx

    Phew! Thanks for listening and the lovely comment ...

  • @songsville  Mar 1

    Umm ... so my eyes are bigger than my stomach and I woke up thinking I would try a respectful homage and write in your style. It's nothing really but it was sure fun to try playing and singing that fast ... http://fawm.org/songs/77198/ Thanks for the inspiration!

    I have never seen your face before, I don't think! My previous mental image of you was a pile of legos. Your eyes are a lovely color.

    My hair is also bluish green at the moment, but it's naturally black, so I can't get it so light without frying it, so it's more of a dark teal than pastel.

    Oh cool, I did a few creative writing workshop classes in college but never any "real" English classes i.e. Literature. Are you doing poetry or prose or none/all of the above?

  • @owl  Feb 19

    What are you studying? Sad I haven't seen more songs from you this year but at least you have some good and worthy distractions going on. (I can't imagine the bureaucratic horrors of getting your gender legally changed, good luck getting through the rest of that process. I couldn't even deal with the paperwork of a name change so I kept mine when I got married)

  • @oddaustin Feb 10

    Just checked out your band. You make my kind of psychedelia.

  • @shortdan  Feb 9

    Cool. Loved that last one - it's stuck in my head actually!

  • @judypie Feb 7

    SICKENING I know

  • @judypie Feb 7

    To sing? I don't think he'd know how to teach! He doesn't know what he's doing, just naturally gifted πŸ˜›

  • @judypie Feb 6

    Thank you French! Yeah good shout on chord change on second 'you don't know her'. Someone else said we didn't start the fire but I've genuinely never heard that song. Unintentional rip off there! πŸ˜›I dunno about chord changes, great that they're sophisticated! I only pick em based on what sounds right so definitely not forced. I had one singing lesson when I first picked up guitar and if I had the money I'd have a hundred more!

  • @degausser  Feb 3

    More time, less experimental?

  • @sailingmagpie  Feb 1

    I love the idea of using sampling as an irritant to someone you've never metβ€Ό You should sample one of his songs. Good luck for February.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 1

    Hey matey, bring on the samples. you can be the antihesis of me this month. Only thing i'll be sampling is bird noises and horn beeps

  • @judypie Jan 31

    Haha is that right! Gonna hold you to that, can't say it comes naturally to me!

  • @judypie Jan 31

    ANOHNI πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

  • @expendablefriend Jan 30

    Delight my ears with your beautiful noises!

  • @alboe Jan 30

    Hey, hope you have a nice FAWM.

  • @balancelost  Jan 30

    Yo! cLOUDDEAD? Heck yes. Space is potent.

  • @kissinginpublic  Jan 30

    FAWM on! Looking forward to the experiments and hopefully some crazy time signatures

  • @vomvorton  Jan 30

    LOL @ sampling. I wasn't planning on doing any, but you make a persuasive argument.

  • @igg  Jan 30

    Hi there,
    looking forward to more great stuff from you!

  • @orinoco  Jan 29

    Good luck; I'm going to pretend I'm angry at your use of samples, in the hope that we can escalate it into a full-on public meltdown in the forums, both say we're quitting but then rejoin 30 minutes later. Do we have a deal?

  • @tobermory  Jan 29

    It's all good material to sing about (as long as you're not too explicit about which dicks are fucking up the group dynamic). Oh, and - ha! - Chelsea Manning as an influence! The US establishment can suck it this year. Give em both barrels

  • @tobermory  Jan 29

    Sure thing. You out of exam hell for the time being then?

  • @frenchcricket Jan 29

    [oops]

  • @tobermory  Jan 28

    'Sup yo

  • @thelowestbitter Jan 28

    Did you by any chance catch any of ANOHNI's Hopelessness shows when she was over here? Was able to go to the Edinburgh one and it was phenomenal.

    Anyway, looking forward to hearing new stuff from you

  • @phlex Jan 28

    More experimental sounds like the best plan! My ears are ready.

  • @adforperu  Jan 28

    Muuuuusic.
