"the perfect is the enemy of the good"
This is my eighth year doing this, and I had to count on my fingers to confirm because my brain was firmly convinced weâ€™re still in 2020 (yikes!)
Check out some previous FAWM songs (and others) done up proper at my band Gentle Brontosaurus's site here:
@ndavies = keys, pocket trumpet, vox.
me = keys, guitar, vox.
Also check out Vowl Sounds, collabs with @vomvorton, also made possible via FAWM: facebook.com/vowlsoundsmusic
We released our first official album last April! Check it out here:
other musics from the past you could also listen to: tldrband.com (surf-tinged indie rock; I sang), www.facebook.com/RedTapeDiaries (math-tinged power pop; I played keys). miscellaneousowl.bandcamp.com contains the detritus of FAWMs past.
