Six Sick Thistles 19


Montreal CA   Jan 2014  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Celtic Music, The Doors, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, The Pixies, Radiohead, anything with bagpipes. I listen to just about everything.

Account name "electrocelte" but current band name is “Six Sick Thistles”. This is my rebrand year, so please follow 6ST on all of the things. ☺️

6ST🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 New dreams, new musical visions, no boundaries. Bagpipes... 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🎧📱yes I’m also the guy behind Supersonic Tartan Death Machine.

Tastes a wee bit like #Celtic, incorporates a metric f*ckton of #electronic sounds, guitar power chords, and a vocalist that just won't shut up... oh and did I mention #bagpipes

My mission: to take a sound that I have been working with for over year 30 years, namely #bagpipes, and bring it to a whole new level of COOL. If my love for this instrument can be imparted on even just a few people in this world, to me that is a success! I have been composing and arranging all kinds of music for bagpipes for many years... 😀

I like traditional piping, but I also like to create things that are fresh. I also like to rock out, and create some great lyrical content. So I have my work cut out for me!

I have been FAWMing since 2014... it’s a public service and I am more than glad to do it!!

Lastly, check out my brand new album, the very first by Six Sick Thistles. Much of it comes from my FAWM project of 2020.

PS: if anyone wants/needs #vocals or #lyrics for anything, I am up for collabs!!

    Hey Jeff! Thanks & congrats on your 18. I have to catch up on listening (planning on tackling the rest of your tunes tomorrow if all goes well). I'm really interested in your #sprite project 😁

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @metalfoot  6 weeks

    I am 100% coming back to listen to I Clubbed a Haggis to Death. That title is worth it! Also will be doing a lot of listening in March. 😀

  • @electrocelte  6 weeks

    #Sprite. And that is all!! ❤️

  • @grenzgaengerin 6 weeks

    Auf Dich kann ich mich verlassen 😉

  • @grenzgaengerin 6 weeks

    Thank you very much for your great comments! Unfortunately I don't have TinWhistle, but I play the German flute and recorder - they can be heard in the radio play "Dáleigh O'Fleiarty" 😉
    pssst, please do not reveal:
    I had a little help with my editing program 😉

  • @nahlej381  7 weeks

    Trophies all around!

  • @nahlej381  7 weeks

    track is uploaded, i sent you another one, if you're down. lmk if i should touch up the mix.

  • @nahlej381  7 weeks

    i sent you over another track, good sir. lmk if you're into it.

  • @electrocelte  7 weeks

    No folks, I don’t superimpose #bagpipes onto my music it is more like I superimpose music onto my bagpipes. But when I go the other way I promise I’ll let you all know, BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  • @frozenlonesome  7 weeks

    Thanks Jeff. I think I may have a couple more tracks in me for this year. Although I’m excited to move into listening to others more. Do you think the samples still add to the compositions?

  • @nahlej381  8 weeks

    Lol ya sometimes I just like making nightmare songs with bad public domain movie samples I grew up with. In this case it was toxic avenger. Had some writers block so just went with it. Shock the block away lol

  • @faceofeinstein  Feb 14

    Oh damn, and you're Canadian! 🇨🇦

  • @nahlej381  Feb 14

    I used yours, if you want can you send the vocal stems, I only saw the one link to this. I’ll remix em and update the track

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 13

    Glad you liked Many Steps To Go Jeff. 🤩

  • @tomslatter  Feb 13

    Thanks for the comments. Yeah lots of it was in 7/8. I'm usually in 7/8... 😀

  • @nahlej381  Feb 12

    I’ll get you the BPM shortly. Just gotta get to my computer

  • @nahlej381  Feb 11

    i'm about to send you a track. let me know if you like it/want on it. really diggin' your tracks this year.

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 9

    Gotcha. Thanks Jeff!

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 9

    Thanks for your cryptic comment on Where’s Marty?. Looking forward to listening to your tracks. I feel like you’re ahead of your usual pace.

  • @tunecat  Feb 9

    OK point taken re.. pipes not being unusual in a pop song!!

  • @candle  Feb 8

    LOL, yeah I could kick up my heals, but I won't. My Muse is just getting started it would seem. I've got a few collabs in the works as well as a few other tracks I'm working on. Thanks for the listen & the comment!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @nahlej381  Feb 7

    Pixies fans unite!!!!! Ima make a pixies-ish instrumental and send it your way to add magic to!

  • @nahlej381  Feb 7

    Cool I’ll think on an instrumental I love all music I just can’t sing to save my soul so I rap lol

    My email is

  • @nahlej381  Feb 7

    Would you want to collaborate on a song? I’ve never worked with bagpipes and I think this would be the year to change that. Really enjoyed your songs so far.

  • @nahlej381  Feb 7

    I bought autotune on sale just to have for folks that request it when I’m recording em so I’m learning it lol it’s silly but kinda fun to mess with

  • @candle  Feb 6

    Oh man. That's really sad. I feel for his partner & the family. A baby who's gonna grow up without a father. That's hard. My thoughts go out to them.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @clioem Feb 5

    It all sounds awesome!!!!

  • @stompinmary  Feb 5

    Hello from an accordion player, wink!

  • @clioem Feb 5

    AHH yes I've been waiting for my quality time with the electric pipes!

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 2

    A #Haggis tune? I'm intrigued. And a little scared. But mostly intrigued.

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 2

    Cheers Jeff! Happy FAWMing!

  • @helene  Jan 27

    Joyeux FAWMing!

  • @frozenlonesome  Jan 25

    Hey Jeff, I sold my Microfreak and bought an OPSIX instead.

  • @heliosonorous Jan 23

    Happy Fawm! I enjoyed your stuff last year and look forward to what you make this time!

  • @calumcarlyle  Jan 22

    Looking forward to your stuff just from the description. No idea how I missed it in previous fawms!

  • @tseaver  Jan 22

    Howdy! Looks like your Bandcamp URLs are broken: the site software messes up links with 'https:' embedded.

  • @candle  Jan 21

    My Mother (who stole the phrase my my great-grandmother) always says: "This too shall pass." At least there's some light starting to appear at the end of this tunnel.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @ayehahmur  Jan 21

    No distance is too far for good haggis!! Good to see you here again. Get those pipes warmed up!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 21

    As I'm sure I've mentioned before, bagpipes are one of my favourite instruments so I'm always excited to hear what you come up with!

  • @candle  Jan 14

    Yeah, funny with all the insanity going on in the world, time is still flying at mach 5… Good to see you're back!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @candle  Jan 13

    Always looking forward to your pipes. Hope you're FAWMing this year!

    See You In The Shadows…
