Hi, I'm Pete.
Let's make some chooooooons. Have a fun FAWM. I'll try and pop by at some point to exchange pleasantries.
** I have a new album out on 8th March 2020, and as your attorney I strongly advise you to go to my Bandcamp and pre-order it now **
Check out my old Medway friends, they are always good value
@tomski (my old bandmate)
@girlsinuniform (my oldest friend and inebriation partner)
and of course, 'er indoors, the adorable
|#4||The Night J. Klinsmann Came to Our Flat @frenchcricket||
|#8||Western Freeway (or, Auto-Plagiarising Beyond the Metaphysical Frontier, if you prefer)||
|#10||The Medwadyssey @sailingmagpie||
hey, thanks for commenting on all my songs after FAWM finished! i can't believe I never considered that about two hands... but you're right, I mean it totally sounds like that. And perhaps is, subconsciously.
Also, the movie inspiration for 'Zone' was Sonic the hedgehog lol
I just took a bit of the melody from the intro to Sonic 2 and slowed it down a bit.
And the drum sounds used in this one are from various packs and stuff I've collected over time.
Just wanted to say thanks for listening and commenting on so much of my stuff. You're one of my absolute favorites here to just sit and listen to and it means a lot. Very encouraging and helps my waning confidence.
Let's make a song next year!
You're a listening machine, and very entertaining commenter - thank you very much, and congrats to you too - 14 schmorteen.
Oh no problem, this shit writes itself:
My heart's in my throat
oh fuck, and damn
Nobody can drive in Nottingham
You're a hundred years old
I'll take your licence, Gran
Nobody can drive in Nottingham
Hear my drum and bass!
Hear my engine purr!
Not even I can drive in Loughborough
be my chauffeur?
Because nobody can drive in Loughborough
Thanks for the listening sesh, but I burst out laughing at the ambigeous nature of "I feel like I'm in some mysterious old forest covered in moss."
Thanks for all the listens! Here at fresh spotless youth enterprises we have a dosimeter badge to make sure no one exceeds the maximum daily dose. I regret to inform you that you've gone over and may suffer longterm consequences
Thanks for the comment blitz! Off to do a bit of listening to yours in turn, I'm woefully behind with commenting.
Hi Pete! It was nice of you to stop by and listen to so many songs. I especially appreciated that you listened to the Odysseus/Fourth One pair back to back. That song just has two chords rocking back and forth, so you can do a lot of different things with it. I think Vom should throw it out there as a challenge: see how many different versions people come up with. I'm working on another one!
Aweeesome, thanks for posting clips. I've been light on FAWM lately but I'm totally looking forward to fitting some of these into the puzzle.
Thank you for your listens Pete! Eve is largely about eating the forbidden fruit and not giving a shit about what anyone else is saying. Eve is a state of mind!
I'll see what I can do. Good work mate, solid start!
Thank you for commenting on "Squid Linguistics"! I'm pleased to see that "Rack Off" video is BACK, I'll have to check in later and listen 😀
Thank you!! That's so good to hear. I'm traveling for another 10 days, but then will hit the record button hard.
Thanks for your comment! I always use fingers to pick, only ever use a plectrum for strumming. Never learned how to use it properly for picking, it didn't seem important because I never needed to SHRED. The picking in that song sounds quite strong because of unholy compression I think
Thanks! If you're gonna have big guitars, gotta make them the biggest.
You are right. Wobble has 3 elements one is phat beat one is wobble bass distortion, the third i forget!
Huh. For some reason I thought we were dealing in distortion land, but I'll have to pay attention to the EQ. Thanks!
Hopefully we'll get white dog turds back now that we're no longer "slaves" to "legislation". Cos that's what it's all about, isn't it? Not been the same country since they got rid of white dog shit.
PMSAD - a portmanteau of the acronymic reasons for my bad mood at band practice the other day
Thank you so much for the thoughtful words on my tune! It's amazing to see when I get out of my own way that the songs just want to be written and it's not a struggle. I'm excited to see what you have in store. I'm gonna listen to Rack Off right now 😀
Looking forward to hearing what delights you have in store. Any plans for 90s footballers again? I'm going to throw Jurgen Klinsmann and Denis Erwin into the hat!! Hit me up for a collaboration (my time is limited but I've always got room for some PG Lover!)
Thanks for asking! Yes, I'll be participating again this year
Maybe I'll hit 14 this time??? unlikely, but we must push ourselves eh
Haha, clearly I'm really influenced by them!
O hai are you doing FAWM this year? See you here I hope!
You're gonna FAWM the FAWM outta this FAWMing FAWM, ain'tcha?
Hi, Pete. Good to see you around.
Wotcha. Hope you are around this year!
BLOSTY! Can I call you Blosty? I’m already regretting it.
Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year, I’ll let you know if I need a rap on my anti-Mourinho/Pochettino break-up concept album
