Artist Bio

Influences:   influences?...oh, you mean the artists I steal from

Iโ€™m afraid I hit a downer about two thirds through this year and couldnโ€™t shake it off, so sorry about my lack of participation and reciprocation.
Hope to be back next year in better shape.

I have an album featuring a lot of ex-FAWM songs on Spotify -
Crumbs of Comfort by The Pannacotta Army
You'll also find it in other places like Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon, etc

    Tim, I loved your body of work this year. So much variety, and yet each one uniquely your own.
    Maybe next year I will write something collab worthy

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 26

    Hope you haven't hit the late-FAWM lull. Let me know if I can help out with a quick'n'easy collab, me doing the heavy lifting this time. (I've somehow crawled back from being hopelessly behind to almost on track.)

  • @amusia Feb 23

    Thanks for your feedback. I sometimes use the cheesy midi instruments as placeholders, but I think you're right about them having a certain charm. I'll keep that in mind when I work on them after FAWM.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 22

    Just checked out your "Popular Songs" on Spotify. Really like your sound, from production through singing. Your voice has this endearing talk-sing charm that very few pull off well (like Randy Newman, but less strained).

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 22

    Your Instagram link is broken. Found out why: you forgot the colon after https.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 22

    Thanks for the push to "fix" that pop. I'd re-record, but can't due to vocal injury. Pulled it into Adobe Audition and passed over the spot with the healing brush about 10 times. ๐Ÿ˜€ Still there, but a lot less "present."

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 22

    Totally true. My typical setup with a Rode NT1A records to my Voice Memos app in Mono and involves some pain importing to the computer pulling it into Adobe Audition, deleting the empty track and converting to mono, so I was trying out a pair of Behringer C-2s, and didn't attach the pop filter. Only noticed later those P's were so strong. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 20

    Hey Tim
    Thank for for high praise on Mother Earth. Means so much coming from you! I was getting so sick and tired of typecasting myself as "torch lounge singer" This was so much fun

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 19

    You got mail bitch. Don't make me wait (bitch)

  • @judypie  Feb 19

    Listen Master Oddbod, you werenโ€™t there when the track landed ok. It was fucked for a good three minutes!

  • @jbp123 Feb 19

    Great! Send em over! johnparker1985@googlemail.com. We should be able to start work on them tonight. Cheers

  • @adforperu  Feb 19

    I see everyone likes that damn classical guitar eh? These people don't know diddly squat. Seriously though, your piece really did push me into finding a reseller and seeing Nils on Sunday. So glad I did, he was incredible!

  • @shortdan  Feb 18

    Haha, yes! Dusted off the Telecaster ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 17

    Okay, so I used a bit of Koestler Rigoletto. It's not like I have a problem. I could stop any time I wanted. What do you mean, my eye's twitching? Like I said, I could stop any time I... any time I... um, 'scuse me a moment...

    <organ wheezing>

    Ah, that's the ticket. Sorry, what were we talking about again?

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 16

    You voted for my riff?? Wow...now I'm totally convinced you have no taste in riffs.

  • @haim  Feb 15

    Cool, thanks. Ill listen tomorrow first thing in the morning.

  • @downfallroad  Feb 15

    \m/ Thanks dude. Acoustic rock is my jam so it wasn't so much a choice as its just who I am ๐Ÿ˜

  • @leepat  Feb 15

    hey, thanks for listening. it's true it could have gone on but then the alarm ragn and it was time to fawm on

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 15

    Came by to see your Valentine's Day song to Mrs Oddbod. I always look forward to them!

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    Yaah....let's do blues. Check your email.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 13

    I'm totally down for doing the Kinks and a blues number. If you prefer to do just one (because you're a pansy) then I'll do whatever you like. Blues, the Kinks, a polka version of a Black Sabbath song, A black Sabbath version of a polka song....whatevs.

  • @saulius Feb 12

    Thank you for brightening an otherwise bleak February morning. You are a master of this art form, and your songs are some of the best written, performed and produced pieces on this site. Thank you for the music.

    This is my first FAWM and first time exposing my songs to a larger audience other than immediate friends and family. I'm learning a lot listening to others. I had a great spurt in my first week, but now the muse seems to have evaporated completely, in the middle of my 6th song. Got the lyrics done but then the music just fizzled. I'll try to move to other ideas.

  • @haim  Feb 11

    Thanks man! No problem at all, i enjoyed and didnt expeft to pass the first phase. Thanks for your honesty! Its all about the fun, and i learned more in my instruments so its all for the best.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 11

  • @dragondreams  Feb 11

    No worries. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    It was all in fun, and I enjoyed the other 15 riffs, the trash talk and the good humour. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @philnorman  Feb 11

    Thank you, kind friend.

  • @xfloorpunchx Feb 11

    You got a mail ! Thanks dude ๐Ÿ˜

  • @aesthetic72 Feb 10

    that's so much for your comments on my tracks ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zoom  Feb 10

    thank you so much for your lovely coment on 'clad in armor' ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @deena  Feb 10

    ps sent you a new track!

  • @deena  Feb 10

    Rainstick man wrote music for movies...and needed different tones for different scores and ended up holding onto to all of them "just in case."

  • @judypie  Feb 10

    Haha I just canโ€™t stop Oddbod, THERES SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Thanks for listenzzzz! It means a lot ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @dragondreams  Feb 9

    Thanks for the listen and the comments, Tim. ๐Ÿ˜€
    The depth of tremolo on the guitar was quite by accident. I'd caught one of the controls with the guitar cable, but I liked the result and kept it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @angelinapowersuit Feb 9

    Thanks SO much for your comments on "They Warned Me." You ever have a moment after recording a song late night, and think "What the hell have I done?" Well, anyway, thanks for making me feel better. I will spend the day learning to play the cello ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @deena  Feb 9

    I'm off today to celebrate the 91st birthday of the gentleman who gave me five rain-sticks. I will be sure to ask him how and why he had so many!

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 9

    Open D! Niiice. And thank YOU for the comments.

  • @deena  Feb 8

    Hey, just sent you an email!

  • @captainvulpine  Feb 8

    Of all the made up words and mispronunciations over a decade, you call me out on ''Chiarascuro'. I'm calling the police.

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 7

    Hey Tim
    Thanks for stopping by!
    Junk in the trunk is totally suggestive, given what it means ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ustaknow Feb 7

    Nice structure to that, but yes, -- I'll pass.

    -- Nonetheless, bravo!

    The year I did the Harmonica challenge, (which was as much great fun), I initially suggested "this" here this thread; but, I no sooner posted it, then I came back to a thread *filled with favorite artists riffs and best of tracks and etc, -- took on a life of it's own.

    So, I'll sit back an enjoy watching it! Good one!

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 7

    Haha! I can live with that

  • @pcob1993  Feb 6

    Thank you so much for the info. I have an AT40/50 condenser mic that I use for everything so I'll get another one and fool around. I have a beautiful old Lowden steel six-string that has a lovely tone but I can't seem to get the tone recorded. And yes, I just stumbled across Quirke on Netflix and I, (ahem) , had lunch with Gabriel Byrne on Elizabeth Street about a year ago. Six degrees of separation indeed...

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 6

    Hi Tim! Yes I'm around, or I will be. A slow start again for me as I've had a few other things to sort out, but I'll catch up!

  • @chaplino Feb 5

    hahahaha I had no idea I stole your name & I promise I went for the "double ds" on purpose. And yes, please take that song as a dedication!! hahaha, thank you for all the comments & I'm just about to listen to your stuff. woo !

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 5

    Extremely optional organ cheese in your inbox.

  • @deena  Feb 4

    Either/or - It's all good - I love all your comments - you're a great commenter.

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 4

    Tuba, awesome. Post it up. Haven't had a moment to add anything else, sorry - haven't been near my recording stuff since Sunday. (Would alternating verses between us work?)

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 4

    I'm unsure if there is a challenge with @sapient. There was never anything officially set and we don't have an official championship title. What would be ace is if we can get a few fawmers and get a tournament going. So care to join the tournament or are you going to clean up your cabbage patch doll collection?
    And I don't sleep with my little pony. I keep her on the dresser.

  • @adforperu  Feb 4

    Not only is the clave a sample, it came complete with the reverb too, mwahaha! Thank you sir.. and thanks for the forum shout out too, most kind. By the way, my friend Hannah is FAWMing/writing songs for the first time ever, and you may take a particular interest in one of her songs..... https://fawm.org/fawmers/chaplino/

  • @cindyrella  Feb 4

    Good to see you again. As a reminder, can you send those files? Thanks.

  • @shortdan  Feb 4

    You'll laugh (probably) but I just accidentally reported a comment of yours for abuse due to my new laptop having a maddening trackpad. Oops! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  • @shortdan  Feb 4

    Excellent, send 'em over!

  • @shortdan  Feb 4

    Let's talk collabs! How are you thinking this might work? I'd love to hear us both singing.

  • @tomski  Feb 3

    Two song in and Iโ€™m very impressed so far. I look forward to hearing what else you have in store.

  • @sciren  Feb 3

    Love your influences section. SPOT ON, for real. Hereโ€™s to another year of FAWMING! Youโ€™ll have to let me know how you feel about Studio One. Iโ€™ve been wanting to try it out. Also, we may need some slide guitar this year. Will let you know. โค๏ธ

  • @apertome  Feb 3

    Oh yeah, ValhallaRoom is incredible, I like to use it heavily.

  • @alamous Feb 2

    Havenโ€™t heart of the artist, or the album, so I guess Iโ€™ll check out both them ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the tecommendation!

  • @thelostcartographer  Feb 2

    Sampled or not, it sounds great. I was just excited by the idea of a real one!

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 2

    Absolutely. I'm always up for some daft oddboddery. Shoot me an email. I should have a bit of time to warble tomorrow, but may be on the road Mon & Tues. (Piano on Plastic Mountain was the Addictive Piano Modern Upright, if memory serves.)

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 2

    welcome back! you're off to a great start!

  • @susyblue  Feb 1

    ***sorry for enthusiastically posting twice heheheh

  • @susyblue  Feb 1

    Sir Oddbod! You've been knighted right? Love your work looking forward to some newies

  • @susyblue  Feb 1

    Sir Oddbod! You've been knighted right? Love your work looking forward to some newies

  • @robs  Feb 1

    So Oddbod and the army finally merged? I'll listen to your Spotify album!

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 1

    Cheers, Tim! Thanks for listening.

    I haven't really investigated what's involved with Spotify & co yet. I'm more of a download man than a streamer myself (thanks to spotty Aussie internet) so getting it up on Bandcamp was the first priority.

    How about this? - I'll look into streaming services if you stick your (really lovely) Crumbs album on Bandcamp. (It's pretty painless.)

  • @timothybracken Feb 1

    Heyyy!! Good to hear from ya! Iโ€™ll be here, canโ€™t wait to attempt to pull music from my dusty old brain ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Letโ€™s try to do something!!!

  • @sherrycanary  Jan 31

    Hi Tim
    Happy FAWMing
    Looking forward to your wonderful music...and maybe another collab

  • @silvermachine  Jan 30

    Wotcha mate. Yeah I can do Ray Winston and Noel Coward.
    I keep thinking you're from Kelly's Heroes? I may be wrong?
    I chose Silver Machine because I am streamlined, shiny and sexy. ๐Ÿ˜

  • @kristian  Jan 29

    haha Brexit the Musical ๐Ÿ˜€ might be fun; if a little crazy

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 28

    You could enjoy this

  • @lain Jan 28

    Thanks for your comment ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽถ

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 28

    OK sounds good. If it works for you the 60s/70s hits style Kinks works for me.

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 28

    Good question. I like their debut album as well as their 80s stuff like Destroyer (from Give the People What They Want), Apeman (was that 80s or 70s...don't remember).
    Of course Really Got Me has a great groove to it so........the verdict.....YOU DECIDE.
    See how easy that was.....for me?
    Also I have no internet at home so sorry for these late replies.

  • @spikedirection  Jan 27

    I read the words national resonator and got weak at the knees with delight! Looking forward to see what you come up with

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 27

    Greetings fellow Kentish sonic warrior! Looking forward to hearing more musical delights from you this year!

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 27

    Cool! How do you want to do this? You write I sing, I write you sing. I do the kick you do the snare?

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 26

    Hey do you wanna do a power pop song ala the Kinks?

  • @deena  Jan 26

    Hi oddbod, thanks for your greeting! I'm so glad to see you here and can't wait to hear what you will come up with. Looking forward to it all.

  • @steffan  Jan 26

    As long as you've got insurance.

  • @nuj4x Jan 25

  • @amusia Jan 23

    I look forward to hearing what you come up with this year as well. Thanks for all your kind words last time!

    Happy FAWMing 2019.
    Looking forward to hear what you come up with this February.
    I am planning to focus on songs for Easter in this yearโ€™s FAWM.

  • @lvgd09  Jan 22

    Hi, I like your style of writing in the forums and I'm looking forward to following your progress. I don't know what you guys were talking about but that was a whopper of a poem you put. Nice! Have a good FAWM

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 20

    Welcome back, oddbod! Happy FAWMing ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @leepat  Jan 20

    Hello sir, touchรฉ by your high coup pun gun! Would love to collab if the army is not overbooked this season...

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 20

    Ay up.

    Ooh, a Pannacotta album. Lovely / about flipping time. Can I buy a FLAC/lossless version somewhere? I'm a bit of a music snob, doncha know.

  • @paulhenry  Jan 19

    Yes, I am a huge F&S fan. My parents had their albums when I was growing up, and they saw them when their "At the Drop of a Hat" world tour went through San Francisco. When I started playing music, I covered several of their tunes (still do). I was in London in '78 and had the pleasure of meeting Donald Swann at a kind of retrospective/concert that he gave. Still one of my personal high points.

  • @mdavisto  Jan 19

    Hey, thank you for posting @mikedebenham's video, that was a delight!

  • @jibbidy34  Jan 18

    Heyyy you. Just saying hi!

  • @adforperu  Jan 18

    Haha, I think I knew that already or at the very least assumed that, which made that post all the more fun ๐Ÿ˜

  • @mdavisto  Jan 17

    Oh god your Brexit poem ... PMSL

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 17

    Wow, didn't expect that! Thanks Tim. I always miss you. You're fun to pick on.

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 17

    Really? Huh...I never bothered to put you on my watchlist. I save that space for music that matters.

  • @boyatheart  Jan 17

    The Tele sounds nice. I did a similar thing in reverse to you a few years back by selling my Custom Shop relic Strat and then getting a couple cheaper guitars and a new amp!
    The new guitars this time round are:
    Squier Bullet hardtail Strat, which was ยฃ82 new on Ebay last year. Fiesta red.
    A Strat made from parts I had in my parts box, which I painted Capri orange.
    A Fender Japan Traditional series Jaguar in Arctic white.

    The Jag was a gift from a Japanese friend of mine, who's generosity totally blew my mind!
    I also made a portable iso cab for recording guitars, which came out really well.

  • @boyatheart  Jan 17

    Hey Oddbod. Happy FAWMing and best wishes. So you're from the class of 2008 then, same as me. I'm up for a collab if you are. I'm planning on focusing on collabs in the second 2 weeks of Feb.

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Jan 17

    Thanks man! Looking forward to some new Oddbod classics! Slide guitar sounds like a fun new twist. Happy Fawming!
