    I sent them via wetransfer before I sent you the email mentioning it.
    Did you get them?

    Oh and if you have never come across the US HBO Comedy ‘baskets’ I think you might find it quite biographical based on your profile!!

  • @rshakesp  Feb 27

    I’ve watched you so we can do something next year - that tune is way out of the norm for me just a bit of fun after finishing my album and collabs - BUT I’m a huge fan of Strange and Norrell - perhaps we could do something around that.

    No worries, makes me look popular 😀

  • @nuerdetjuligen  Feb 20

    absolutely! send me some lyrics when you have time or if you have lyrics that you want to post on fawm as lyrics only--that's great too.

    Hi Richard, glad you liked my "Thatcher Years" song.

    YOU SAID:
    "...says a lot about Britain, and not in a good way....."

    Indeed, Britain was the best place I ever left. Would never return to live there, that "Iron Lady" cast a long shadow.

  • @nuerdetjuligen  Feb 20

    Thanks Richard! Good to see you again! Work has been eating up my energy most of this month, so I'm pretty far behind. but a collab would be fun! what do you have in mind?

  • @mahtowin Feb 19

    Thanjs, I try my best 😊

  • @mahtowin Feb 19

    So we do a similar job - not easy sometimes but worth it.
    I like your lyrics, the way you tell a story in a song. And I guess you love to recognize details.
    Sorry for my english ...

  • @mahtowin Feb 19

    Hey! I work as a social worker with people with mental desease. 😊

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 19

    Thanks Richard

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 16

    I sent you last 10s clip for the anything goes exquisite corpse, if you didn't get it in email I can upload it to dropbox or something.

  • @richardmasters  Feb 12

    Thanks for the encouragement Berni - I've got a bit of extra time coming up soon, so I'll do my best to earn that cup!

  • @berni1954  Feb 11

    Look forward to hearing at least 14 of the 20 before Feb is out 😉 You'll get your "CUP" by your name if you do 😁

  • @jorh  Feb 11

    Haha don’t worry I’m not precious about a few changes, my lyrics here are always a first draft anyway. Dark Latin bar-room brawl sounds very intriguing, a whole new genre I tried to click on link to listen but it wasn’t working - you can send it to jorh1504@hotmail.com if that’s easier?

  • @richardmasters  Feb 11

    Hello Jorh, um, just to let you know, some of the lyrics changed in my mouth as I was recording it - not a massive amount but still noticeable. Sorry if I bent it in a direction you don't like. Here's a link to my (private) Soundcloud page it if you want to vet it first before I post it as a song. The music seems to have taken a swing towards dark latin bar-room-brawl

  • @jorh  Feb 11

    Dark blues in a shady alley sounds good to me - I’m a fan of a whole array of music. That was just an initial idea but I’m always interested to see where other people take it, some of my favourite collabs have been in a completely different style to what I initially envisioned 😀 more than happy for you to post or your welcome to send it to my email first if you’d prefer.

  • @berni1954  Feb 11

    Glad you like my two recent sea songs.
    Are you going to spectate this FAWM out or will you be joining the party?
    Look forward to what you will bring. FAWM is a brilliant place for newbies to the trade, such great positive feedback (and occasional insightful positive criticism).

  • @jorh  Feb 11

    Hey,
    Glad to hear you liked the lyrics - the tv show can take most of the credit for being dark and strange and inspiring it!
    Wow that was super fast, you’re more productive than me! More than happy for you to post it on your page - I’m always thankful someone has taken the time to set my lyrics to music! Looking forward to hearing it 😀
