THE JELLY FACTORY WILL BE OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!
Welcome 2 the Jelly Factory! Thanks for stopping by. I hope U have a great FAWM experience.
UPDATE #1 - I have very minimum gear that I will be using this FAWM. Just an AKAI MPK mini (for virtual instruments, samples and looping), my AKAI EIE Pro interface, a Mackie 14 channel mixer and a Sennheiser MD421 mic. M-Audio 5" monitors. That's it.
I'm certainly down to collaborate with you. Here's how I play in the sandbox:
However you'd like to collaborate, let's chat about it and see if we can make it happen. Once expectations, hopes and dreams are set we shall then commence to make the jelly...cuz that's what I do here at the Jelly Factory. Why jelly? Ask other FAWMers who've been around for a while. They'll tell you... 😉
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Buenas tardes señor!
Pretty much, Craig. The arthritis is taking its toll. My GP keeps postponing my steroid injection because of covid and it's affecting my playing quite badly. But, oddly enough, I can still feel comfortable with the bass. Something about the string spacing and scale length helps.
I strung one of my basses with piccolo strings though, so can still get some guitar-type noises. 😀
I do like getting stuff in the mail. Especially now, when human contact is ... intangible, it feels like a nice way to interact.
Hi! Happy FAWM to you too 😀
Now I've got a reason to be excited about this year... 😉
Hi! Hope you have a great Fawm, too. 😊
I'm ready, but I'm not sure how active I'll be this year.
Let me know if you want to collab. If that's all I get to do it'll be a fulfilling FAWM.
And I still want to put all our past collabs together and officially finish them. I often spend an evening listening to them. Some of my proudest musical work.
Hi Craig! Thanks for the greeting. Your profile pic is pretty intriguing. Could easily trigger a song. Happy FAWM!!
If you can get a setup working, i'd totally be down for a collab this year, Craig!
Yes yes yes to the cts!
Great to see you here again too! 😃
Hey! Hope you have a great FAWM!
Well, hi to you too! And yes, your poetry night idea sounds intriguing!
I know a guy who took making things from scratch to the extreme... lol
How do! Thank you for stopping by 😁 I hope you have a wonderful February!
Hi Craig! Awesome you are back! Looking so forward to hearing anything you cook up!
Hi Craig! .. Oh Yes! .. I wished we would have had FAWM for every month last year huh? .. glad you are back!
Don't get me started on the Scarb Fair nonsense. I think tandoori and panko is fine.
Hi Craig! We try again this time, yes?
I was born ready, then some other weird stuff happened, and I am no longer ready. Come February 3rd though I'll get something up (I checked my metadata; it's ALWAYS the 3rd).
Love your photo!! Looks like we’re groovin’ to the same vibe. Thanks for stopping by.
If CTS is bad, then baby I don't wanna be good no more.
Except in the good meaning of bad.
To quote Run DMC in Pied Piper:
He's the big bad wolf in your neighborhood,
Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good
That's you. The big bad wolf. Of Jelly.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but it's a joy to have ya around.
Kick punch chop, I got the funky flow. M.I.X. the flour into the bowl!
Let's get it, dude
Looking forward to hearing your magic set in jelly.
A notepad? Yes. The question is whether or not it will be full by the end of the month. 😉
Thanks, my dude <3
Excited to hear your new music!!! Thanks for the welcome back.
Craig, dish out that magic.....my ears are ready....
Hey, welcome back. Looking forward to another great FAWM!
Hey Craig, have a blast whether it's writing or just listening
You have a good one mate!
Yes, good to see you, looking forward to hearing you....
Heya, Craig. No, I can't. Life has been a mess, but Fawm is always a cheerful place for me. Thanks for the note. Here's to another great Fawm.
Hello! I'm doing just fine--glad to see you back! How are you?
I think you may have too much faith in me...
Hey Craig! We're hanging in there, thanks. How about you?
Oh, what a wondrous time it will be, Craig. Wondrous things in jars, on toast, in donuts. Fantastic carb-filled musical treats. Let us overindulge.
Don't be too wild unless it's the right kind of wild this FAWM. hehe.
was way more than plenty
so let's have big fun in
Let's bring the marmalade, preserves, or whatever!
Hi, there! Wishing you an amazing and productive FAWM! 😀
So good to see you here! Cannot wait to hear some more jelly... 😀
Hola! Have a great Feb!
Well cmon in!!! What kind of special sauce have for us this year? It’s going to be great
Heya, you are back! Happy FAWM!
Hey C! This side of the Atlantic we are pathetically collapsing in on ourselves more and more every day it seems. What a time to be alive! Clinging to FAWM as an oasis of positivity, hope all is well with you!
I get all giddy and shite when I think of the Jelly to be manufactured here. My brother.
Good to see you back. Have a great and productive February!
Happy FAWMing to you too! Would you be up for another collab?
Hey Craig. My heart lifts whenever I think that we'll trade licks again. Let's do this, my brother. 😀
Hey Craig - I'm hunkered down at home. The UK currently has the highest mortality rate from Covid anywhere on the planet, which is yet another triumph for Boris Johnson and his venal, conniving cronies. But I have a freshly-refitted studio to play in, so I'm cool. How are you doing?
don't cross the streams!
Put 'em to work on some bass or something 😁
Great bio pic! just don't turn around 😁
Hi Craig, looking forward to your great jelly.
are you aware that you have captured a ghost in your bio pic??! kinda spooky. Dig it
All I want for FAWM is jelly! Cheers!
And a happy and musical FAWM to you!
Hey there! Looking forward to hearing some Jelly. 😀
Here I am! Here’s to a new year!
I hope I get to hear some more incredible sounds from the Jelly Factory!
Greetings to you!! All my best to you.
Well heck, I'm just grateful that you're still checking in with the FAWMily even if all you put out this year is good vibes! I hope all is well with you.
Hope you're around this year. 😀
Craiiiiig!! Cannot wait to hear what you do in FAWM 2021!! Thank you for helping to fix my booboo at FAWMStock last year 😂! Was so awesome to meet you! Hope you are well! 🎵
Please tell me that you're back in the mix this year! After a year like this past one, we NEED ya.
Happy FAWMing, dude!!!
