2020:

Hi, FAWM friends! It's almost time for my favourite month of the year.

Here's a little reminder I'm posting to myself for the month ahead:

*It's February Album WRITING month, not February Album PRODUCING month*
*It's February Album WRITING month, not February Album PRODUCING month*
*It's February Album WRITING month, not February Album PRODUCING month*
*It's February Album WRITING month, not February Album PRODUCING month*
*It's February Album WRITING month, not February Album PRODUCING month*

There. Feel free to remind me of the above at any point in February.

Happy FAWMing!

  • @helenseviltwin  4 weeks

    Woohoo! Look at your lil' owl with their trophy. Congrats on another excellent fawm

  • @weakness 4 weeks

    Ahhhh I'm hopin I can! I appreciate ya thinkin of me!
    Also goddamn congrats on all the songs this month! Can't wait to check these all out!

  • @iwilleatyou  4 weeks

    What's so funny about that ending to Pumpkin 3.14? Is there something you'd like to share with the rest of the class Miss Friend?

  • @vomvorton  4 weeks

    This morning I was driving to work and suddenly I thought "wow, wouldn't it be cool if EF had a song called 'What's with the Lanyard?'". And maybe it would, who knows? Either way I thought I should share this baffling brain-thought.

  • @bradbrubaker  4 weeks

    I enjoyed stopping by your page and catching up on your tunes. Not all my comments were super-great, but I really enjoy your output each year. Big fan!

  • @helenseviltwin  5 weeks

    Noted, birthday present for EF, food tray that latches onto floor tom

  • @helenseviltwin  5 weeks

    Doesn't being awake make you want to get behind a drum kit? ๐Ÿ˜

  • @leepat  5 weeks

    hey, sent a message through Bandcamp about a possible collab - hope you get it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @vomvorton  6 weeks

    Dammit, everything really has been done done done before! (That video is great)

  • @rayboneor  7 weeks

    You've probably forgotten, but I appreciated your "Carry on sinning!" remark. I view that as a sort of Papal dispensation. I will carry on with the half-baked and poorly recorded, with your blessing

  • @lazyafro 7 weeks

    "I am Your Adult" is one of my all time favorite FAWM songs. I still frequently find myself humming it at random times.

    Welcome back and happy Fawming!

  • @mistermann 7 weeks

    Hi dear,

    So as you can tell by my late response I'm probably not full steam this FAWM. I'll FB with more.

    In the meantime please accept my gun violence EP as a substitute if you haven't heard it already:

  • @meadows  7 weeks

    Thank you Jacqui! Your comment is much appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @mikegtz  7 weeks

    Hi Jacqui and welcome back to the FAWM coliseum!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  7 weeks

    Thanks for the notes on your recording! Very useful! My brain loves knowing that stuff and it gives me ideas for future recordings/productions.

    For me, it's hard to separate songwriting from production. They go hand in hand (for me) many times.

    So, I FEEL your pain.

  • @helenseviltwin  7 weeks

    No, no, you misunderstand, it's about a completely different Jacqui

  • @seemanski  7 weeks

    Thanks for your constructive feedback. As your not the onlt person to mention about vox being too low I'm thinking I may have to push the faders up a bit more, I may also have to spend more time in the toilet ๐Ÿ˜›

  • @dabirks  7 weeks

    I'm waiting for your first song to drop! I referred a local singer-songwriter to FAWM recently and shared the link to your 2014 smash hit 'Get This Started'. -- Dave

  • @megsongs 7 weeks

    Very good advice. I need to follow this so I don't get stuck in the old infinity loop of "But It's Not Good Enough Yet". Lolz
    Oh, by the way, I'm back. Hello. Glad you are too! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tawalker 8 weeks

    Good advice! Thatโ€™s exactly how Iโ€™m going to approach this FAWM: as a writing exercise for the album project Iโ€™m going to do this year. All the best for your efforts this time around!

  • @mctown 8 weeks

    I FB'ed u with an initial thought or two...D

  • @cairobraga 8 weeks

    here's to another year of me GETTING MY WHOLE LIFE from your demo from a past FAWM called "Too Many Questions" while also GETTING MORE LIFE from your new songs. S2

  • @seemanski  8 weeks

    It's February Album PRODUCING month, not February Album WRITING month

    I mean it was something like that wasn't it ๐Ÿ˜ looking forward to hearing your stuff, I expect it to be written beautifully and sound okish. Knowing what you have done previously it will be amazing on both fronts though.

  • @meadows  8 weeks

    Happy FAWMing to you! Looking forward to listening to your music! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tawny249  Jan 27

    Hello there! May your FAWM be creative and less stressful than you anticipate. Good luck!

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 27

    Happy FAWMing! Looking forward to hearing your stuff again

  • @mdavisto  Jan 25

    Hi @expendablefriend. Have a lovely fawm. Write. Produce later.

  • @cowex  Jan 25

    Hi the owl! I see you're all set for no-FAP Feburary! That's quite a challenge you're taking on. May you produce many songs that you haven't produced.

  • @weakness Jan 23

    Hell yea! You too, dangit! ๐Ÿค—

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 23

    Can't wait to give you a listen!!!!

  • @gslade Jan 22

    I always wished we had collaborated in the past, but I'll settle for new songs from you. Have a great FAWM!

  • @bitshred Jan 21

    OMG you're here.

  • @mctown Jan 20

    Heynowheyโ€ฆ Hope you are good. I played some of our songs on wolvertonfmโ€ฆ an Isle of Wight station... got a show there... I never know which show they're playing though...Pete has a show there as well.. onward.

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 20

    Looking forward to hearing your latest..

    Been playing โ€œA better Dayโ€ at open mics and people luv the song!!
    Thanks for letting me cover such an amazing song..

  • @owl  Jan 20

    Have an excellent FAWM! Looking forward as always to hearing your awesome music.

  • @guatecoop  Jan 19

    Hi there...Iโ€™m looking forward to hearing your music again this year. Your musical mind and precision always inspire me. Best wishes to you this fawm.

  • @iwilleatyou  Jan 18

    How dare you peer into my chamber and not join me for a cup of blood! Us vampires must support each other if we are to expand our race you know.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 18

    Sign my ears up for more @expendablefriend tunes- looking forward to what you WRITE!

  • @joshbelville  Jan 17

    don't mind me, just gonna ... clear a little spot here ... on the rug ... so i can sit and appreciate your music yet again this year. plop a throw pillow down here. don't mind me.

  • @rayboneor  Jan 17

    Hey! Thanks for the shout out. You must have made a wrong turn and ended up in the unsavory corner of FAWM where the fresh spotless youth dwell. We're big expendablefriend fans over here ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sph  Jan 17

    Happy FAPM, err FAWM...

  • @judypie  Jan 16

    Oh gawd, I forgot regression was possible! I bet Iโ€™ve regressed too! Nooooooooooo. OH WELL, itโ€™ll still be oodles of fun up until the point I start to loathe myself ๐Ÿ˜ I hope you have a fabby one ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 16

    Thank you so much... I'm looking forward to making some noise. Hope we can maybe work together on one, but I have no preconceptions this year. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @kristian  Jan 16

    Pfft... we both know we will get minimal sleep due to producing all the things!

  • @embersofautumn Jan 16

    Goal:
    *To keep my sanity intact
    *To recapture my spirit of creativity
    *To enjoy February, not dread it.

  • @embersofautumn Jan 16

    I did this to take
    I did this to take up
    I did this to take up space
    I did this to take up space on your board.

  • @balancelost  Jan 16

    Yo! I'm here. Let's DO this

  • @vomvorton  Jan 16

    Happy almost-FAWM! No plans for any more gigs at the moment but if this one goes well then who knows? I've never really enjoyed doing solo gigs but if I can find a way to start, then I'd like to do more.

  • @oddbod  Jan 16

    ..be my guest!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 16

    Hey! Happy FAWMing to you... Here's to a musical 2020!

    *It's February Album WRITING month, not February Album PRODUCING month*

    Sounds like it would make an excellent chorus. I suggest you shout if over power chords played into your phone on a guitar that you can barely be bothered to tune.

  • @saxylizbeth  Jan 16

    Yo.
    Yep - will give it a go!

  • @oddbod  Jan 16

    and FAPM doesn't slip off the tongue nearly as well either

  • @adforperu  Jan 16

    thank you - glad you're around again this year!

  • @steffan  Jan 13

  • @embersofautumn Jan 13

    First for 2020!
