Influences: Steely Dan and Megan Thee Stallion
2020; aka FAWM #10!
My 10 year anniversary! That's pretty insane. Feel like I should do something special, but what exactly, I don't know. As per last year, it's not been a hugely musical year; as you may recall, I got a piano in January 2019 and whilst I made some good progress with lessons most of the year, I've dropped off big style lately. We did the Sheffield Beatles Project gigs again, playing Let it Be and Abbey Road in full, and it was incredible; I also got to sing I Want You (She's So Heavy) which was epic! .
No idea what I'll do this year, I'm very mucha blank slate. I got both of my electric guitars fixed and tuned up which is nice. Also got a new mic, a new guitar pedal, and Melodyne for use! I went to Japan in November with @judypie (and met @santadharma and @balancelost!), and have been listening to a lot of YMO, Akiko Yano, etc - so maybe some of that influence will creep in..
As always, give me a shout if you're up for a collaboration but can't make promises with time and all that.
A massive thank you to anyone in advance, for listening and/or commenting on music, it means so much to me that people would actually do that. I'm very happy for any constructive criticism. I try to listen to everyone's songs who comment rather than directly saying thank you (as I lose track otherwise).
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Happy to you too.
Looking forward to your new stuff. 😀
Congratulations on your tenth FAWM!
Have a great one!
*also smug* Let's make a track about Koenji!!!
I wish you good fortune in the carnage to come.
That's a shame you seemed to be really getting into last year. Maybe FAWM is the spark you need to get you going again. I read about that beatles project of yours in the star. I'm glad it went well for you.
I am alive once more!
G'day Ad. Great to see you back, as always. I haven't touched a guitar in months - hope I remember which way up it goes.
Hey man, welcome back. Looking forward to see what you cook up us this year. Hoping to hear some piano, if I recall correctly that was something you were going for last year.
Hey again! Always stoked to see a great artist return to the fold 😀
I'd definitely be up for checking out the video of your Beatles gig. I'll keep an eye out for it. I've spent about half of my performing life covering them!
Good to see you!
Welcome back for another year! I guess I’m also class of 2011... although I managed one song that year LOL. Let’s do this thing!!!
PS I Want You (She's So Heavy) might be my favourite Beatles tune.
Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year, sir. It's awesome that you met Pete. We've been friends since Year 7!
And happy 10th to yet another member of the class of 2011...
Can’t wait to hear your tunes this year! Would love to attempt a collab — not sure what would be the best way; always in awe of your songwriting 😀
Can't wait, as always, to hear your amazing creations! 😀
Happy decade of FAWMing!
Ahoy. Where's Perfume on your list of Japanese listening?! 😁
Have a great FAWM! I’m still mad at you for tricking me into thinking you got married from THAT Facebook post.. I spent a «like» and then it was all a lie... Still recovering from the shock
have the best FAWM this year!
Yay, it would be wonderful to collab. I shall look forward to it.
I actually moved to Walkley again...but my LL would like her house back 😏 if you hear of any nice peeps in Walkley/Crookes that need a housemate- please do let me know 😀
Hi Ad! Ahh, yes- I hope so too. I shall be moving house *again* in Feb though. If you or Julie want to collab; please lemme know! 😀
Hey, thanks! I've been having a bit of an artistic identity crisis lately and I realized I would never actually enjoy making the album I always envisioned my first true one would be, so I was hoping FAWM could motivate me to figure out what I really want to be doing with sounds. Kinda hoping I feel like starting early!
Yes, sign me up! Hope you're inspired and raring to go!
who is this?
Katy Lied, Royal Scam and Aja are the holy trinity of Dan albums for me.
Cheers...and a very good afternoon to you Adam
Steely Dan? I look forward to hearing how that manifests itself. One of my top 5 albums of all time is Royal Scam
Hi, Adam. 😀
