Influences: PJ Harvey, Sleater-Kinney, Kate Bush, Blondie
Eleventh year of FAWM. Probably going to try to finish it in the first half, as second half of February is stupidly busy.
2/2 update: And will you look at that? The first half of February just got stupidly busy too. Lack of sleep, it is!

Thanks for commenting on my song "no choice"!
Thanks for commenting on my songs! 😀
found him btw ..he's well
thanks.. thought i had searched him on here...hope you good
Thank you for your comment on, 'I'm not in love'.
Thank you for your lovely comment on "Silver Anniversary"
Ah.... no apologies!! But one of these seasons.... this year was crazy fun and crazy intense for me but that led to a boatload of lyrics, some instrumentals, and over 40 collaborations! I look forward to sleep.
Glad you liked Can't Say No. Val is awesome and I love that she brings out the rocker in me! Missed having any collabs with you for awhile!
Thanks for the feedback on "Burn the Witches", I comment to people all the time who complain about how the demo sounds telling them the writing is more important than the recording but then did the exact same thing on my own demo. Of the protest songs I have written this month, I felt like this may have been the weakest but it's starting to grow on me.
Thanks for the feedback on "Dust Off Your Riveters", I have a habit of getting something stuck in my head that I like to so much I decide it should be the chorus. Having my friend tell me that those lined might be better served being the opening line has really made me work a little harder at the song rather than resting comfortably on what I would normally make the chorus. Repeating the first line was really just because I wanted to use use it as the chorus but made the decision not to
No more awkward than XGFBFF I wouldn't think. 😝
Yeah. Maybe at some point Annabelle and Jenny can get together.
Not the 12 string, just a groovy effect called Lux Verb. Not sure if they mean deluxe or luxurious or deluxurious.
Thanks for stopping by - especially songs with collaborators!
Thank you for your feedback on "Space Travel"
You lead a skirmish last weekend - and I wrote some crazy rambling lyrics in the midst of falling on and off asleep as I was writing Stuck in the Middle of Blue -- I cleaned it up and Pete Murphy made s cool ballad - thought I wouls share in case you wanted to hear and so you don't think i liked that song as it was...
Thanks for the feedback on my tracks!
Took your advice on my Untitled Happy song which is now "Come Together". The audio is now up. Thank you so much, that one word change in the bridge made a huge difference.
I don't know that I'm proper back, I just know that I miss this, and writing, and all of you, and frankly, I need a better hobby than sitting at the bar after work with all the other old men, drinking beer, talking shite, and watching women's gymnastics. So, yeah, not proper back, but working my way back to it. Miss you.
Yeah, I left the stick noise in on purpose. I liked it. Then added some string noise to compliment.
Thanks for your comment on Favored Few my Fawm song number 3. I am going to rework it - highlite those lyrics better but for now on to song number 4! Thank again.
Thanks - I totally do not hear it as punk at all even after thinking about Margo's comment - she's the crazy wonderful guitar player in my band. Maybe I need to write some punk for her😀
Thank you, Helen. Means a lot coming from you.
And I thought I was the only person trying to make connections from seemingly random soundboard posts ...
Thank you for the great SS theme idea, and thank you for your comments on my 'Middle of Something' song 😀
I tried to listen to your take on Middle Of Something, but the player wouldn't play 😞 Please let me know when it is fixed 😀
Not really - just a bit of the chorus but at the end wanted to repeat core of choruses but not that bit twice so went back and defined them as they were as a Lift from chorus to verse and then let that also serve as the outro. And thanks for no penalty on using wrong title which I didn't notice until I posted - I was dozing off throughout so truly tired and confused. Gotta love the FAWM zombie state.
Thanks for the kind words, Helen! You're helping to keep me inspired. Your song, Warning Cry, is wonderfully ominous. You could have tagged it as one of the dream songs, though it's more of a nightmare, isn't it? 😀 Good work.
Hey skirmish host! In my post for super skirmish ss3a I included a link to a site that adjusts the time to local times. BUT...my link was customized for the start of my skirmish! So, if you used my post as a template and did not change the link your link will NOT reflect the correct time and you will confuse your skirmishers!!!.
If you used my post as a template you need to either 1) correct the link to the time of your skirmish or 2) provide a link to a general conversion site like this https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/
Sorry if my link caused any confusion!!
Hi Helen, happy fawming, and sorry you're so so busy... selfishly sorry, because I'm looking for a Joan Jett-style vocal. Just in case, lyrics are here: http://fawm.org/songs/66177/ . I'm planning a chunky, driving guitar sound; I'm in no hurry and am up for collab on the music side, too. Cheers.
Awesome! Just sent you an email.
Still laughing about "all the French he knew". Funny because it's true!
Hi Helen, looking forward to hearing your songs this year. Thanks for listening.
Thanks for the comment on "a song to wake you in the morning" glad you like the violin!
Thanks! Hope you're doing well 😀
Thanks for stopping. Yes a kind of tongue in cheek comedic stage musical style. So a G and S operetta is indeed an option.
Howdy, I just checked out the thread "Any shouters/ screamers on here?" and see that you can do riot grrl type screaming and shouting.You up for a collab?
Have a great FAWM! 😁
Hellie Hellie Hellie!
I feel special 😁
Heya Helen, have a wonderful FAWM! 😀
Yo! I await my next earworm from you 😀
YAAAAY!!!! HEEEELEEEEN!!!!!!! *waves* 😁
Going instrumental is certainly going to make the acapella difficult.
Helen, I've missed you. Glad we're both back for FAWM once again.
<head nod> Cause I'm too cool for words.
Looking forward to hearing your new music! Always a fan!
Hiya Helen - you about this year? (y)
I was planning on playing it, but if you're keen then it would sound significantly nicer if you did I'm sure!
HELEN! Have a good FAWM
