FINI! Super thanks to all who wasted their time collaborating with me.
Did I miss anyone? Anyone? Bueller??? Bueller????
Ah yes...of course...how can I forget @mysterioussingerwhowillnotdrinkyou.
Just WHO IS THIS mysterious singer??????
Well, now that FAWM is over I can tell you. She is Fiona Apple's cousin, Fiona Pineapple. I can't believe you guys couldn't figure it out.
Vox/Guitar- Eye don't care
Guitar/Backing Vox - Eye could care less
Bass/Backing Vox- Eye don't give a shit
Drums- Eye'm sorry but do I have something on my forehead that says I care? Didn't think so. Go away.

Yeah I don’t have much optimism about humanity but if we make it through another year let’s definitely collaborate. I’m super behind on listening too as I’m now embarking on the exciting adventure of cat parenting. I will hopefully catch up sometime this week but really no worries if you can’t listen. XX
Thanks for your comments! Sooo appreciated & encouraging. I shall be commenting on your music shortly 😀 x
Y'know - I meant to swing by here and wish you a happy FAWM. I see you're tearing it up per usual. I will be back for commenting!
Had you read the articles on the Phase4Music blogs, you would have seen how the breakdown of profits is to be shared. As the income from subscriptions over the past two months has been less than $15, I do not anticipate any great financial rewards for anyone. You would also have read that 50% of all subscriptions this month will be donated to animal shelters. I put in an average of 70´hours a month preparing the audio magazine and writing articles to promote the artists, so dont assume Im trying to make money off anybodys work, when im not even making anything on my own work. My intent with this project is to bring more visibility to independant musicians of quality. I listened to over 500 songs before choosing the 16 on this months collection, and my choices were made on artistic quality, not commercial potential.The artists who have joined me on this venture understand this.
i have deleted sherrys song from the audio magazine. when i asked her for it, i had no idea you were involved with it. if you were not such a hothead, you would have realized this is an audio magazine available to subscribers only, who become subscribers through a donation that can be as low as zero. the charges that show on bandcamp are there only to appease the bandcamp brass, from whom i purchase codes which i send to subscribers and contributers to obtain their free downloads.
Sorry we didn’t manage a collab this year but I’m going to hit you up early next year. Hang in there you’re so close!!!
Hit me up in canaryland
You know how to find me
Sexting doesn't cut it. Gotta hear those tones 😀
Haha let’s BOTH do a logo without consulting one another and then we can go with shittest/best 😁
"I read somewhere that if one were to take particular ancient plants that allowed one to see various dimensions, the one physical life form that would remain constant in appearance are plants/trees." *very* interesting... I'd be interested in knowing more about that.
Thank you for all your comments, and for the collab. I'll be in touch after FAWM, and if you find a way to join my Slack someday (with the app maybe? Dunno...), you'll be welcome.
And congrats on a very creative (and sporty) month!
Yup, don’t forget our cover too, Dirty cheats done dirt cheap/t
Peter please don’t take Fawm’s name in vain! But yes, would love to continue our band post-Fawm:D Without the goddamn time constraints!
I fear it is one of those crappy 28 day ones. Ok, hold that thought for first song of next year? 😁
oops wrong soundboard duuhr
See! You DO have another song in you!! Bagsy collab 😝
Sorry, I hadn't signed into FAWM for a little while so I just heard the song. Damn! So much crazy...next level crazy.. I think were lucky we pass these songs over the internet. I have a feeling if we got in a room together we'd get so absorbed in sound exploration we'd both get hospitalized for malnutrition. Thanks for making me sound good!
How the FUCK did you get Fiona Pineapple to sing with you?! You lie!
Fact of the day.. i used to have an Eraserhead t-shirt with Jack Nance on the front with that iconic hair and worried look. I wore it to work the morning Heath Ledger died, and my colleague assumed it was actually Heath and I'd made a t-shirt bearing his face in the night...
You should get a trophy! But I think all that extra time is its own reward. I keep saying I’ll quit but I find it good for music connections. Also glad we could make you float! 😀
Glad you said audio books and not phone sex hahahaha
Ah man that is sad news but you do have 11 in the bag! 😁 Hahahah look mate, I loved Oasis as much as anyone 30 years ago 😝 I saw them play in manc 😎 It’s just errr, not what I was channeling
You want to ref this? Go ahead!
of course cause i'm awesöme
i knew it!
nö need to ref the fight, i win! yes my cousin is gööd, at least when i provide vocals. i see you have a cousin too. greet her för me.
Are you Trent Reznor?
What do you MEAN ITS LIKE OASIS. 😡 You just wait for my next comment on your next song! You are doing more, right? It’s nearly overrrrrrr
thanks för the cömment, dude! yeah we plan tö make an album but i'm wörking ön getting Jöanne fired fröm the band because she sucks...
Yeah, no biggie. I know you were teasing. It's the imperfections that make thigns real interesting, IMHO.
See You In The Shadows…
Good call on Blackswan. Woah, did you come up with that yourself about rhythm? Cos that’s pretty good shit man. You saw the sugarcubes wowww! I have seen her live more than any other act I think 😀
Haha, yes you caught my pick slip. No one is perfect - especially when the record button has been pressed. I'm glad you enjoyed the song despite the gaffe. Thank you so much for your kind words on it, as well as on The Mellow Road. I truly appreciate it!
See You In The Shadows…
returning the favor of being unable to listen to your music now, tried to listen to "Today or Tomorrow" but the play button isn't working for me!
My apologies, as ever 😛
Hahahaha, dick face
hey, I’ve had a question about carbon and chemical I’ve been trying to email you about for some time, can you email me your email address so I can ask you about it?
Well shit! That’s a fucking awesome idea! 😁
Well I mean, I learned the word from you yeah! But now you’re picking me up on it 😝 I’m turning over a new leaf.
Lol at everyone being really polite on your wall. I just want to apologise. I’m feeling all feisty tonight, I just had some cinnamon weetabix and I’m Zinging off the walls. Also you just commented on my song so now I feel even worse for my tresppesses. Do you think I say fuck too much? I did notice a lot of my songs are getting the nsfw tag. I’m gonna curb it in. I did just send a collab off that has the word bitch in but after that. I’m clean to 14!
I can’t help it, you’re just such a bitch.
Thank you for your kind words on The Dark Throne Of Jupiter. I have to admit, those chords for the strumming guitar part are sort of a over-used goto for me. I've written a lot of songs using that progression. So somewhere, I've got vocals to go with them.
See You In The Shadows…
Thanks for your lovely comments on ‘a beautiful stranger’ - yes I love piano, it is so beautiful!
Hah, no prob, mate, glad I could help!
mail in your box
I’LL EMAIL YOU SOME (I won’t, don’t get excited).
It was 2AM PETER! Believe me, we rifled through horse sounds, but they just weren’t fucking neighing right so it hit the chopping room floor. Geez (degausser) is playing the good mouth organ in the hoedown, I just added the unbelievably cool bit over the chorus 😎
enjoyed your songs a lot and love your outlook on fawm
It's been a pretty productive FAWM so far even though I have been constantly behind! Seems like yours is going well too, I will be back to check out more later.
Thanks for the great comment on Nimbostratus. I wasn't doing any voodoo. But I can't speak for my collaborator 😉
See You In The Shadows…
Looks like it worked for my songs! Thanks for the comments.
Yes, an oracle of sorts. It's a song for my soundtrack, about the hero whose inner eye has opened, and who now sees beyond time and space.
Me, the soundtrack for 300?? *You* should do the soundtrack for 300.
Thanks so much for listening to “please don’t go” and for your kind comments! I’ve been really basic with my recording this year: just an iPhone and a garage band app. Having trouble finding the time I used to to make all the tracks but it’s still fun to write when I can. I look forward to checking out your new music too!
Hey there. Thanks for the comment! Currently, I'm using a Fender Mustang PJ (capri orange, short-scale) in the studio - gutted the electronics right at purchase 'cause they were absolute sh*t and threw in a set of Fralin pickups, a new toggle switch etc. I think the pickups were more expensive than the bass if I recall. 😉 It's a beauty now though. Cheers!
I can imagine the amount of energy this kind of song demands. THANK YOU for putting this collab together. <3
I often have the same issue as you when I listen to songs on FAWM. I suspect that it's not just related to connection speed, but to the site itself. I work around this bug by left clicking on the dl link (when there is one). It opens the song in a new player in a new tab, and as far as I'm concerned, it works smoothly.
Thanks for the great comments! 😊
And my solos are usually the same 30 seconds repeated over and over. I simply change the order of some of the notes... 😉
Wow, thanks for the huge compliments on "Satan Knows No Safeword"! Really means a lot! : )
Thanks for you comments on ‘beautiful generation’ - and for using the word anthemic that’s a huge compliment!!
eye beat you
Have you recovered from your metal marathon? I didn't mean to kill you, you know?
Thank you so much for your kind words on Shadowspawn. Yes, it could work in a Tarantino film quite well. That's huge praise!
See You In The Shadows…
Hahahah you’re a genius! I just blasted it out the car on the way home from work. It was written for our band! 😁
Haha...Vance already growls like a death metal rocker. We make all kinds of crazy sounds together 😀
Thank for kind words! Sorry to dissapoint you not to get you annoyed but thats just good I guess. Im bad with genres anyway just try to make something out. Have a positively annoying FAWMing. Haha
Let's do some blues first (I want to do some slide on the resonator) and if there's time we can do a Kinks or whatev later.
How you wanna do it? I could work a basic music structure out then send you that. you could work out vocals and melody.....as long as you're okay getting to grips with all these complex musical terms that is
Oh yeah it's definitely hilarious. I really enjoyed the social commentary, but it doesn't hit you over the head. Cool I will get back to you once I wrap up a collab I'm working on 😀
Thanks for the listen. A video of the dramatic envelope opening and build up to it would be fun to make.
Bonne nuit! Et vas-y doucement sur la vodka! 😝
Also metal collab could be really fun.
Fuck the harp, no time for minor details like that. It took me 3 listen to notice it wasn't there lol.
All day and night is long enough. Now you go to bed and sleep! (No clue what time it is for you right now but for me it's 4 am so I'm going to follow my own advice.)
And I know the Kinks in case you didn't know!
It’s so good. Highly recommend. You will understand my complaints about Japan as a woman so much more. It’s painfully accurate.
And by the way, LOL @ the mommy tag 😁
Hahahaha. Vodka works too! The most important part is to be naked.
The harp has gone into the void, but both of us can still hear it chanting. Kind of esoteric, don't you think?
Seriously, your vocals are goooooooood!!
I love it! Thought you would keep the harp, but it's great like that.
And yes, it's FAWM anyway. Hop! hop! hop!
I've edited the liner notes. I hope you agree with my advice.
Awesome! Thank you for your hard work!
Your vocals are fucking great. Putain de voix, ça déchire!!
It can be a good idea to use "nous" when you address people with "vous", and "on" when you address them with "tu". Formal and informal.
Anyway, I don't think anyone will bother you with that, especially if French isn't your native language. If someone does, they suck. We have "a few" swear words that could be useful in these situations. If you need to learn them, let me know. 😁
Looking forward to your vocals! 😁
Thanks for your interpretation of my "Interpretation of Dreams" - quite a Reichean analysis that I can go along with. But as Melanie once sang, in criticism of Freud's crudity " a phallic symbol is anything that is longer than it is broad" is just laughable.
Blues? Whenever you’re ready.
...but what happened to the Kinks?
It's incomprehensible.grooves@gmail (with the dot com, of course, but I'm trying to dodge spam this way. 😝 )
What should I send? The instrumental as it is + lyrics are good enough, right?
Okay, so yesterday I was working a bit on a project I was thinking of maybe collaborating with you on. I recorded some scratch vocals, which inspired lyrics, and then I rerecorded with those lyrics. Today I worked more on the lyrics and recorded more of the vocals and did a bit of an arrangement... but I don't love my singing.
I'm kinda torn between working many more hours on it until I'm happy with my own singing.... or just handing it off to you instead, as I'm sure you could do a much better job on the singing.
Here's the current rough take of it with my singing: https://vocaroo.com/i/s1bIMmsod0zd
Even without the vocals, this still needs more work, recording automations on the 303s, adding more drums, maybe more instruments, and possibly extending the arrangement too, and I'll get to all of that later.
What do you say? Care to lend me your voice to do this properly? And if so... where do I send you the instrumental?
And yeah, I can work with an mp3 recording.
Yeah, I do, I guess I just get caught in the moment. And usually I haven't even decided on timing that precisely yet before delivering. : D But yeah, seriously, that idea could work, I might try it out next time!
You got the files, great!
Tell me what you think of the transition between the last wailing guitars and voice sections. Been listening to it a few times, I'm wondering if I'm on time??
Disclaimer : this is coming from a fervent defender of formal language and a grammar nazi.
I speak perverted French all the time, but I believe that everyone (French native speakers I mean) should know how to speak properly.
It's actually a very, very bad perversion, removing the personal notion that initially goes with the pronoun to replace it by some impersonal point of view. "On" could be anyone. "On n'est pas d'accord" could be understood and/or translated as "somebody doesn't agree", and not specifically as "nous ne sommes pas d'accord".
It's true that you'll seldom hear "nous" in the spoken language, except from people who make a point of keeping it formal : teachers, writers, (some) journalists, some old persons (as the "on" perversion is fairly recent), and people who want to appear as polite.
Despite being largely spread, the use of "on" instead of "nous" still has a strong connotation of familiarity. It's better to avoid it in job interviews, or when you address people you don't know and you don't want to make a bad impression (unless they're your age, or openly cool and not giving a shit).
That is because "on" in place of "nous" is strongly disapproved in the written language, and sanctioned in school works and exams.
hey you can hang out here at my pad anytime...
i got a bottle of Jack opened and waiting for ya...
Allez, hop! Je t'ai envoyé mes trucs en email. Phew!
You're sorry?! You're going out of your mind??
Je repasse te faire le cours de français sur "nous" et "on" plus tard. 😉
Yeah.. Actually you are right.. Music does not have to make sense.. Thanks for this reminder 😀 You found the right words for something which is very true..
All my drums are always Toontrack's EZ Drummer, but I switch the kits around depending on the sound and groove of the tune. This little snippet is with the Hard Rock kit. Basically the Metallica Black Album drum sound. Tho with midi loops that clearly weren't recorded by Lars Ulrich... 😎
Aww, thanks. I kinda heard the riff developing into an instrumental, but I'll put the call out for vocals and see what happens. 😎
Thanks for your comments on "Black Metal Terror - Nuclear Horror" and "Mieleni liekit", man! You're right, I suppose I could try to double the vocals at some point. It's just that I'm so lousy with timing them, it could be kinda pain in the butt. : D As for shortness of that other track, I'm glad it left you wanting for more. : ) When making it, I thought that it would maintain its violence effectively, if I were to keep it short. : )
Wotcha mate. Gracias for all the listens and encouragement.
Will be back later today to check out your songs.
This FAWM lark is running me ragged.
Oh golly ok, well that makes up for your comment on my latest song then 😀
Well when I shared it on my Facebook I said it was a collab with my Fawm hero (you’re not really, I was totally embellishing) so I think his mom just assumed I must’ve been referring to Ad 😂. But you’d think she’d know what her son sounds like after all these years 😂. Yas! Love all night long! Then seamlessly into Dancing on the ceiling!
😂😂 I’m just listening to check.. I don’t hear it BUT actually, does our song have a slight whiff of ‘easy’ about it?? I think maybe it does! Just cos it actually IS pretty easy like a Sunday morning.. There are worse peeps to be compared to than Lionel I guess. Get this: I shared it on Facebook and Ad’s mom thought it was me and Ad?!!!!
