2019: Back for my 12th FAWM. I'll see how much I've got left in the tank. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to listen.
In 2010 I was thrilled to be included on the Fampilation vol. 6 CD. I've recently recorded a reboot of that song ('East of Tompkins Square') and put it on my Soundcloud page...https://soundcloud.com/rick-amorphis/...
EVERYDAY GOING BACKWARDS (2017) is a 5-song EP of electric protest songs written during FAWM '17 available on my Bandcamp page.
CAUGHT BY THE SOUND (2016) is a 12-song LP, mostly consisting of songs from FAWMs '15 & '16, including such smash hits as 'Rejectee', 'Schitt's Weak Dog', and of course 'The Winter of Our Discotheque'...also on Bandcamp.
Stuff I use: Fender electric & Guild acoustic guitars, mandolin, bass, piano, organ, synth noises, drum programming, harmonica, tambourine and assorted percussion.
thanks for the comments, -- good suggestions you had, too! 😀
Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment on my songs, man. Much appreciated.
Thank you so very much for all of your listens and kind comments, you really lifted my spirits and I appreciate you subjecting yourself to so much of my music all at once LOL!!!
Cheers, Rick. Your point about detail is valid; it's an artistic choice. I checked and to my surprise ADT was established in 1874! Of course, my family's security system in the '60s was a little door chain and my dad's pistol. We never needed them, but it was part of the zeitgeist.
You're welcome and thank you for your comment too.
I'm a bit burned out, so I'll be back to commenting & listening to more music after the weekend.
Thanks for the note. I appreciate it mightily. Here's to more Fawm awesomesauce.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! perfect!!! You captured the essence perfectly!
Hi there!! Thank you thank you for comments on "Thought You Got a Good One!" Sorry that it's vague, I thought that was a common saying, hmmm 😏 Also, vocals are sooo hard for me, I'm grateful for your positive feedback!
That would be perfect timing!
I would love that! Please do!!!
Happy fawmdays to you too! 😀
You're already rolling! Good job.
LMAO from your comment on my profile.
I am glad you are back! Definitely looking forward to more from you - Always a highlight... 😀
I'm so glad you called, Rick. I wish you a Four-star Fawm 2019!
Hey Rick. How you doing? That will be cool for you to compile some classic "Rick" songs. Of course, you sound like a rock star on that song, and I sound like I never sang before in my life. 😝
Hi Rick. If you're in this year give us a call will you. The number is 555-F-U-N-F-A-W-M-2-0-1-9. Cheers!
