This may have been asked here before. I am a newbie, forgiveness please.

Just wondering if any of you are in bands or make music of any kind or have in the past.

I figure The Fall influence and folks' interest in music in general may have resulted in some creative endeavours at some point.

I have my little doodles of music. I play everything myself and "sing".. my singing is better than Marks, but lacks the power, I generally record everything using my honha acoustic guitar with its martin bluegrass strings. You can add "fake bass" by resting the microphone on the body of the guitar itself, but i usually just use rhythm with lead overdub. Its all on tape. Ive got 2 volumes of tape and a third in progress. No one will EVER hear them tho I was tempted to send them off to Cherry Red. My "band" is called Aquarian Star One Dancer (which is the product of a cut-up, I am not an Aquarian, and Im no good at dancing) Tape 1 is called Lancaster Bombers. Tape 2 is called Bubblegum Tree. They amuse me and a handful of select friends... I doubt anyone will be hearing from me any time soon!

I'm learning to play Morris Dance tunes on a melodeon (a kind of accordion), I do improv with all and sundry and...er...guitar and electric piano in The Hideous Replicas ...

Give us a gig someone- we're stagnating here! (although that might be cos I've got the wrong e-mail address on the webpage). Do you still want us to play your birthday party, FFDave?

I was in loads of unsuccessful bands in the North East in the 70's and 80's that sounded a bit like The Fall;- Drop (geddit), The Euphoria Case, Tick Tick... blah blah...

To old for this rock band stuff now though!

Earlier this year I had a band called McBain, which was a joke electropop thing between me and a mate. Me on synths, him on yelling. We got most of the music recorded (some of which sounded good and quite Fall-ish) but never got round to finishing the vocals. Just when we were getting on to a good roll with the recording, a bunch of kids came into my mate's attic and started doing lines of coke about a foot away from my equipment... and you can't just tell coked-up scallies to piss off, can you?

Still, we had a lot of fun with this McBain thing. I'm trying to get some very different songs written. Aiming for a cross between early Ramones and Goldfrapp. Which sounds pretentious as hell as won't really work, but hey....

me n my mate used to have a "band" called Act26:14 - we even made a record -



- by glueing 2 Cabaret Voltaire records together :o - B sides - and doing new labels - sent it to the Melody Maker but didn't hear nothing - should of sent it to Peel - bet he would have played it -



- should have heard our cover of Blue Monday using pillows as drums - or perhaps not - did Prole Art Threat too - B) - punk/thrash version of George Michaels Faith - ;) ---

I'm in a band for a few months now, but we don't have a name yet. I wish we had a name. :cry:

I used to be in bands years ago too. My first band was Horror Planet and my 2nd band was Bozo Shmo.

I know that we are all opinionated music fans, but am curious how many of us make music in some respect ourselves. I have seen some show listings, mention of projects, etc.. and thought it may be useful and fun to have a thread of links and such to show off your project and get feedback from the masses (that matter).

Any takers?

I've no musical talent whatsoever, but this is my younger brother's outfit; he's the singer. He tells me they're quite big in Reading... :D

I've only ever heard the downloadable song here. Seems quite 'Warsaw' to me. He tells me they've 'moved on' musically since.

Let's not get into a debate about their name... B)

That's not the sort of thing to be commended for, surely? :P ;)

Here is a link to my bands simple page. We are called Fits and Starts and have been playing together for about a year. You can hear (and download if you wish) three songs. Please keep in mind that they were recorded with a minidisc recorder at practice. We may have an opportunity to actually record a few songs this week. So if that works out I will post them here for some input.
It's had been so long since I played music with anyone until this, and it is with some kids that are at least seven years younger than me. I wouldn't be able to place our references beacuse we all come from such different times and arrived at this point through such different paths.
Any way, be gentle and hopfully better recordings of our better songs are on the way.

I am going to go out on a limb and say that I have more songs available than anybody else on this forum since we lost Cog's bro Bend.

If anyone wants to challenge this brag, here is what you are up against:

the free downloads (1990-2003)

yes!

i'm guitar in a countryish band named THE MULES. we have a site at www.organgrinderrecords.com, and if everything goes to plan we have a gig at tatty bogles, off carnaby st, this saturday night at 1am. we do odd timesignatures unfolding all over traditional murder ballads, one-chord chkachnk and cheap white funk. there are a couple of recordings from last year on the website that show up the eastern european side of things but we're multivaried beasts. enjoy!
