FAWM number nine for me. Where does the time go, eh?
I’ve hit a bit of a brick wall recently as far as music is concerned. I was working on the second Serviettes album but then wasn’t happy with the standard of the songs, so I trimmed it down to an EP. Then I wasn’t happy with that either. Aaaarrrggghh!
I have been working on a music video for one of my tunes from last year, which should hopefully be finished around the end of February though.
I’m all about the groove this year, so expect some funkier offerings than usual.
I normally type out an ever expanding list of equipment that I use but no-one wants to read that. If you want to know what makes a sound in one of my tracks, just ask!
Check out some other Fawmers that Medway begat upon the world:
Of course you're right about the Blur track. What else could it have been? And few people I know know them like you do. It's funny that because that album is such a kind of ground zero moment for me I don't usually consider what would have influenced them at the time. Now I think about it there's all kinds of interesting stuff that would've gone into the melting pot but also I think they managed to transcend a lot of very worthy bands by dint of their own creativity. Also, I only just realised Jerry Stiller who played Frank Costanza is Ben Stiller's dad.
I am so behind with coming and replying to comments and listening, but trying to find some time for it today! I was going to tell you I saw Big Thief when they came to play in Madison here last year? two years ago? and they played EVERY SINGLE SONG THEY KNEW, for some reason. It took hours, and I was enthralled, even though I was also very fatigued by the end of it! I didn't have any friends who especially wanted to come with me and the one friend who came to the show with me left halfway through because it was way too much for a casual fan. But I wish you could have experienced it, can't believe they didn't even play Paul when you saw them.
heyo good to be back glad to see you poppin
Thanks for the kind comment. <3
Merci a lot for your comments ! Gonna listen to your stuff really soon. Have a great FAWM!
Every year my friend.

I can’t wait to hear what funky jams you create this year dude, although I really hope for a good old fashion murder ballad!!
Thx for the comments!
Thanks dude, keen to check out your funky tunes this time round! Happy fawming🎶✌🏼
FAWM number nine for me too! Success!
Looking forward to hearing what you create this year in "groove" mode. 😀 I think I'm going to be working along a similar vein.
Yep. Let the madness begin.

Big cheers! Nice to hear from you. I hope your February is productive, and full of the fun.
Thanks for stopping by - good to hear from you! And I like the sound of being "all about the groove" this year too - I can definitely get behind that 😀

You're very kind, thank you. I hope you have a lekker FAWM, and that the ideas flow like water through a sieve made of Conservative integrity.

Cheers, hope you have a good one too! The kittens are available for collaboration if you need any miscellaneous home-destruction noises or the sound of a tornado of mischief whirling through a living room...
Medway mafia 4 life! 😉
Thank you kindly 😀 I am sending Fawm well-wishes your way also😁 Good luck with your ninth!
