Thanks for listening to the Brave one!
Thanks for commenting on my Takeover song! I've always wanted to make a wall of sound - guess I now know how. 😀
Cool!😃 I will write something specially for you!
Hey thanks for the complement and comparisons to The For Carnations and Bedhead, I can hear the similarities, especially with The For Carnations, which my RPMChallenge Album is in the same vein. I had never heard of these bands so now I have learned about Slow Core...thanks a bunch.
Thank you. Hope we could work with something again. Youre going for 5090?
Have I told you youre awesome 😀? You are. Thanks again. Hope its ok if I also put it on my own website with credits and link of course.
And thanks for updating the forum thread.
I really enjoy your take on it!
Oh and I have updated it With your link!
Oh I love your version (where you sing it) awesome!!! Thank you so much! 💚💚💚
Chow Yun Fat? AND a rocket launcher? Well, I need to see this film, then.
Thanks for commenting on my cryptogram song! Good guess, but no. 😉
Thanks for your comment on Tokyo Blues. It's really quite different from what I usually do, but I guess that's what FAWM is for 😀
Thank you very much for your kind words on "Mandy Lane"!
Thanks for your comments! Makes my day knowing that the songs were heard.
Thanks for listening
I thought that might have been you, Vom. I felt something on my shin as I was overlooking the A1...
Thank you very much for you comment on "Female on the Beach". I have drawn a lot of inspiration from movies and TV Shows. I watch a lot of horror movies which are great for inspiring some interesting songs.
I have written a few songs inspired by Joan's life as well as a few of her movies, "The Damned Don't Cry" has been a huge inspiration for a few. I have not yet written one about "Mildred Pierce" but I'm sure one will come eventually.
Thanks for commenting on 'Human' - there's a lot of weird metallic sounds going on that come from the percussion going through a big, filtered reverb.
Thank you for your comment on my Lonely CD Single in a Charity Shop song. I do rather like the simplicity of CTFPA approach, it's a bit like writing a song on an acoustic guitar.
A friend of mine has just released an EP made on junk shop synths costing less than £30.
Thanks for you comment on my geography song. I felt I hadf to record it probably as I have trouble sometimes picking up the rhythm in other peoples lyrics.
Thank you much for your encouragement, and I like the word a catpella. LOL
Yea, the first time I listened to the song I got quiet lost. "I don't remember playing that!" I was thinking. Probably your synth dubs and some of the other tweaks you did. I recorded most of the track @ double speed which has a massive effect on what it all sounded like during my recording.
Though, it sounds like the final version is EVEN slower than 4.75 ips. But not sure about that.
You did a good job on the lyrics by the way, they're not thematically my sort of thing, but they are well done.
You're talking to the man who's previous FAWM hits includes Apathy in the UK. I couldn't agree more.
typo in the url, should've checked quicker, but it was only down for 10 mins before I spotted it. Thanks for your kind words on it.
Ah cool, I think that the OM27 & OM84 are the best sounding ones in the Omnichord family.
Hey, I don't know if you actually have time to collab with me. The month is winding down quickly and I'm leaving for the weekend tonight. You know I would love nothing more than to have the VV treatment (hell, I'd pay you $50/hour to help me beat some of my stuff into listenable shape). If you do have a moment, I will try to beat a couple of ideas into shape so you at least get the main idea. And if those ideas don't inspire you...well, there's always the $50 an hour route once fawm is over
I think both the OM300 and OM200 has midi out, I think that the OM200 sounds best, and it has a nice selectable vibrato, and a bit cooler rhythms than the OM200.
Yes Casios definitely have more brains (and talent) than many of our leaders. Thanks for stopping by. We have been offline for awhile, but looking forward to catching up on listening. 😀
Thanks so much for your comment!
cheers matey. I think that song is my fac so far purely as i was able to make my indian guitar go backward. was a fluke actualy. created a double part solo for the middle but got bored of it so found reverse in audacity and hey presto, smattered it throughout!!
Thank you. Your beuaitufl puss song inspired me to write my own! 😀
Keep it on the down low, but that's iPad riffage.
Thanks for the good cat wishes! She's OK, gets plenty of cuddles. 😀
Thanks for the kind words on my tracks! Your description of beating up dudes and eating whole chickens is right in line with my vision 😁
I want to hear an extravagant synth workout from you now! 😀
S&G? I can only dream of something like that. More like Fred and Barney. That was my first real attempt at harmony...ever
A few years back I went on a date with a guy who didn't know who either Prince or Bowie were (It was before the obituary media blitz at least, but what?!??!), and then he acted like I was the weird one for not shutting up about this fact (seriously though, HOW?!?). So the Spinto Band love on that date was very unexpected and honestly kept me in the bar for a good hour longer than I would have otherwise stayed with a progenation-obsessed creep. That and a very disappointing series of albums means the Spinto boys have a lot to answer for.
OH MY>>>>>OH MY >>>> By Jove I think you've done it! OMG... I am not worthy. Death of a Loveseat! Oh My oh my oh my. I"m gobsmacked! entirely! thank you so much. You did wonderfly. Vincent is pleased, and may Cthulu let you live another day. 😀
Please have fun with death of a loveseat! I look forward to it!
Thanks for stopping by Vom! I can't wait to check out your wicked tunes; just gotta get through another day at the office 😁
I understand your sentiment about finding the courage to write something for your cat. When the time is right it will come. If it's too soon, trust your instincts. I find it can be cathartic to get it out- but I can also appreciate the delicate nature of raw wounds...
hey, i sent those lyrics. have at 'em.
Thanks a ton for the comment, much appreciated!
I'd sorta glossed over that one.
i started those lyrics last night. should finish them today. here's to hoping this future is what it used to be....
I do like the line "she's the puzzle piece behind the couch that made the sky complete".
Thanks for stopping by and listening to The Nickel Ride. You are spot on in describing it as science fiction tinged noir folk. That is exactly what I was going for Thanks again for yout comments.
Hey Vom! So so sorry to hear about your cat. That just sucks. And any songs you write are awesome. Sad or not. Dude, why you gotta be so awesome? Looking forward to hearing all the great ditties you come up with this year. R.I.P K.I.T.T.Y.
take a look at any of my lyrics, and see if any appeal to you. if not, give me a topic and i'll come up with lyrics. lyrics come easily for me-- it is finding the time to record which gets me, which is why BiaB has been my friend this year.
This is a terrible introduction, but every time I see your name my mind extrapolates: vomit vorton
Thank you for all the thoughtful comments.
Yoko accepts your human compliments with appreciation... *murr murr*
Appreciate the comment on "The Note." This year is being good to me, perhaps because I'm trying really hard.
Haha, he was on my shortlist! It will happen
Thanks for your comment on my cat-song. Sorry to hear about your cat, I didn't wanna make you sad. Making music is how I deal with difficult situations, it's my therapy.
I really like the titles of your tracks so far.
Thanks for the comment on Songs that Pay. 😀
Thanks for taking time to listen to "Shots". Glad you liked it!
Thanks for the very nice comments! Yeah, I could see yo la tengo....although I don't have any of their albums! I don't know why! Very nice, thank you.
Either that or you have pre-cognitive plagiarism superpowers!
Cheers, Mr Vom! I see you're already going great guns. Time for a listen...
I'll see what I can do about the monster trucks. That does sound pretty cool.
Catching up on my thankyou's.
So... thank you for listening and commenting to Wait But Why.
Did you receive my tape yet?
We should be careful or we're gonna get arrested by the gestapun.
Thanks for the comment and the heads up – think it's working again now but I'll keep an eye on it...
Glad you liked it!
All I can hear now is "sexy zombie," thanks a lot
Cheers mate . I think the guitar sound should improve as I record more and I got new strings now so it may even stay in tune!!!!
Thanks for commenting on my strings piece - the rhythmic drive was coming from cellos, doubled in places by viola.
Totally! I've had pet deaths in the past (including my dad running over MY OWN CAT the only time he ever took me to school), but not had one in adulthood (where I'm far more attached). People will always try and trivialise it, but sometimes we can feel closer to our pets than most people 😞
Somehow missed you off my hellos the other day! Hope you're well, and sorry to hear about your car 😞 Working my way through the ol' watchlist at lunch time..
Believe me, it's one of the best. Has all the best words.
Hey man. Good to see you're back this year. Sorry to hear about your cat. I know your pain.
I like the donkey!
Hi Vom! Congratulations on the jubelee! Have a great time!
Cheers, thank you so much for the support! Looking forward to hearing your creations once again this year. Don't be afraid of the sadness <3
I talk a good game with sampling but it's actually quite a pain in the arse.
Anyway I like your sad songs, so hit me with the feels
Yo Vo! Love your bio pic. The donkey is the one on the right? 😀 Have a great Fawm 2017!
Hey fellow peaks muso
Vom! Yay! Excited to hear new songs from you.
congrats on 10 FAWM's! looking forward to hearing your stuff!
woah, 10 years! that is something special, as will your sounds undoubtedly be. these are some exciting times - can't wait to see what you unleash!
Need me some VV songs! Luv that pic. I own a Jack donkey!
Good luck for 2017. Look forward to some new tunes 😀
Haha. Gladiator, ready!
14 songs in 28 days!!!
Hope you have a winning fawmula this year.
Hey Vom, sorry about your cat. I cried for days when one of my cats died. I like sad songs, though, and I like VV songs
