Um, hi guise.

As some of you might know, I make music, you could have heard something here (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37865) and there (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32442). Also, as some of you might know aswell, I finally started my own band. So, finally, here is some thread about us and some basic information.

We are called Sustain, we're a rock/punk band from Bratislava, Slovakia, we have been rehearsing our material for about 3 months in the line-up we are in now, which is as follows:

Me(David) - lead guitar, vocals, songwriting
Janči(Johnny) - guitar, backing vocals
Tomáš(Tom) - bass
Jaro(can't think of an english equivalent) - drums

We play mostly my music(because no one else has showed up with any own songs, yet), and sometimes we mess around with some covers. Our music could be described as "light punk-rock", we have faster songs, slower songs, harder songs, mellower songs... I would say it's basically catchy and melodic rock music. Yeah, unfortunately, I sing. Hopefully, all in all its not so bad :)

For the last week, we've been recording our first demo, which is one song, for promo reasons. And as I love these forums and all, you will be the first ones who'll get to hear it, even before we make a myspace/facebook/whatever profile. The quality is not that good but I guess it's listenable and it showcases at least a glimpse of how/what we play. The song is a mellower, catchy tune, named "Hey, Bartender!" and the lyrics are really simple and not very breathtaking, but hey, I wrote them. So, here goes:

http://www.zshare.net/audio/67516279c2f1ee00/

I also have the lyrics, look:


HEY BARTENDER!
(music & lyrics written by yours truly)

Hey bartender,
I need some money
I will buy me a drink and return it right away
Not coming home
More drinks to hand out
Beer, vodka, absinth, but beer is the one that stands out

It ain't easy, not for me
Life is too hard, now I gotta flee
I am going to celebrate
And I don't need any birthday cake
What's this all supposed to mean?
I need some beer, so I can see..

Hey bartender...

I don't wanna live like this
Live day by day with several beers
To make a difference every day
I change the places where I nightly stay
And to save some health for me
I have some break, but then again I say:

Hey bartender...

(solo)

Hey bartender... (2x)
Any opinions and whatever is welcome. I will post here also the links to the Myspace/Facebook pages when they're done :) Have a nice day!

EDIT: The facebook page is already done, you may join the group here: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/group.php?gid=164404548605&ref=nf

Hell yes! A perfect drinking song, catchy as hell! You just gotta love the lyrics. Also, your vocal style fits really nicely here! Now let's hope there's som more material from you soon.

Me like a very lot much :D

Thanks for the lyrics. I couldn't understand half of the song when I've listened to it before :D

Probably because the vocals are sometimes oversounded by the guitar.

It's not bad at all :)

Being one of the people that knows the song already, the addition of vocals has really been a pleasant surprise ... I'm loving it :cool:

Side note and I will probably get shot for this ... but I think the vocals on the demo should be a little bit a louder.

It's pretty catchy. The verse reminds me a little bit of old Green Day. In my opinion, that's a good thing.

Edit: I originally wrote chorus, but I meant the verse "It ain't easy..." But I guess it all does sound a little Green Dayish. At least to me.

Ummm... the earlier mix had the vocals even more quiet, I think this one is loud enough ;)

You can drink 3, you'll feel even less nervous, and your playing abilities won't be any worse. BUT don't drink anything stronger. I made a mistake on our last gig - first 3 large beers and then a few rum colas, and i don't remember the details of our performance very well (and apparently it was a great performance). I mean it's not that i remember completely nothing, i just forgot some details about it, mainly how long our set lasted :D

Yup, 3 beers is okay, I can play at our rehearsal even after 5 beers with no problems :) And I do not drink hard liquor for about two-three months now.

I was a bit nervous, so I had some beers and screwed up some lyrics, but it doesn't matter, the crowd(basically made of friends) liked what we played. We had a little accident with our bassist, he walked out of the stage for two songs, because..... basically because he's a moron. I may explain if anyone is interested :D He is not in that photo. There might be videos, cause there was a video camera, but first I have to manage it somehow to get them, and maybe I'll share something with you ;) But it will need some time.

Well, to put it simply: He did not like the lyric to one song, as he said to me on rehearsals. He said it was childish. (The lyric is in Slovak, so I dunno if anyone would understand). So I changed the two phrases which he despised the most to something more acceptable. I did it Just because of him, everyone else had nothing against it. And when we were playing the song at the show, I was a bit nervous, and I accidentaly sang the original lyric(not the upgraded one which he wanted). He got angry and walked outta the stage. He watched us play the rest of the song from the audience. I mean, what kind of a person in the right mind does this? And that is not everything about him, he is basically the most negativist/misanthropist person I have ever met in my life. And not even in a funny way. Good news is, I have another bass player which might play with us ;)

Rooster
12-11-2009, 09:13 AM
That was a dick move of him. At our gigs our second guitarist keeps forgetting the lyrics for one of our own songs, but if it happens we still continue playing like nothing happened. We just have a good time, that's what is most important. Negaitvity never brings anything good to the table.

dff_punk
12-11-2009, 09:32 AM

This this this. This is what he does not get, he never has a good time, we three always have fun on rehearsal, then this guy comes and our good mood suddenly disappears. I say, when in a band, you have to like each other as people. That is why we have to let this guy go :D

Rooster
12-11-2009, 11:25 AM
He doesn't seem the right one for the band, with his bad attitude and all.

Having a good time is most important. When we rehearse we're always messing around, we always find something to laugh about :D

Superdope
12-11-2009, 12:08 PM
Your bass player can suck a fat one. Tell him I said that. Telling you the lyrics are childish, and then walking out on you guys while you're playing. Something doesn't add up there.

You should reply with "you look like a nazi" or something...:p



Eh fuck it, seeing from his previous actions he's just a regular Douchey McDouchebag. In a band you always do things in the way that everyone agrees, you don't do something just because some Mr. Shithead says so, and looks like he wanted everything to be done his way...

dff_punk

This one is from near the end of our gig. The songs played are:
ending of Want You Bad (I lost my voice during that one)
Vultures (I gained my voice again by screaming or something :D
Vstaň aj ty (our song in Slovak)
3/4 (our song in English)
Náboženské Zvyky (a cover song of a slovak band Horkýže Slíže)
Gone Away featuring Dexterka on vocals! (the highlight of the evening, poor Dexterka had some problems with hearing herself but it is nice)
Traja spití roboši (another cover of Horkýže Slíže)

I can upload it as a two or three-parter, Marika, if you want, which server do you prefer?

That would be great :) Three-parts sound good, under 100MB a piece would be ideal and you can use any hosting file you perfer.

The setlist sounds great and since Adrian has been raving ... I definitely want to see them all. I do realize that me asking for smaller uploads of videos is more work for you ... but I would like to request it once again :o

Hehe, well, we made a lot of mistakes, but those of you who wanted it, you have it! Also the slovakian banter between songs is usually nothing interesting.

Alright, I watched the full concert yesterday and I had a great time doing so:) As you already guessed, I did like Rollercoaster a lot. The Hardest Time is a great song, too.
Same was This Is The Life, which was a perfect example of a punk rock cover of a popular song. The rest of the concert was just about as entertaining, though. Thanks again for uploading the whole thing!

Hey dude, glad you enjoyed it even though the concert was not perfect, we made lots of mistakes :D We are going to have another gig in a month, we will play shorter but only our songs(and maybe This Is The Life), including two new never heard ones :) I am off to a rehearsal in an hour.

Nice! I am curious about those new songs. Since you said that you made many mistakes... I tried to find some and I did find some at second listen but those are definitely not ruining the show. I think that musicians have another way of self-reflection... I also tend to think that I played horribly after rehearsing/playing a show but in the end the audience gives rather positive feedback. And I think the audience at your show sure as hell had a good time (from what I was able to see;) )

So we had another gig yesterday, it was awesome. We played 9 our songs and it was by far the best sounding gig(of the three we had). There was not much recording this time, but I have two short video snippets, we are negotiating whether we shall put it on youtube or facebook, stay tuned! Anyway, if we decide not to show them in the public, I will upload them somewhere just for you guys :P But they are really short.

I'm glad you are that successful with finding/playing gigs! That's a great time! Of course I'd appreciate new videos, but if anyone in the band doesn't want them up, I'm fine with it.

Heya guys. Our Myspace (myspace.com/sustainband) has a new look (pure co-incidence with the new look of offspring.com) and we are preparing for a the local semi-finals of the international festival EMERGENZA at 30.10.2010 in Bratislava. We are working really hard on our songs to make them sound the best, wish us luck. I will keep you updated. We are also planning to hit the studio until the end of the year. How many songs will be recorded? Who knows, maybe it will be 2 or maybe there will be enough of them for an EP. (or an album? too optimistic, I gotta say) Good day :)

Your myspace page looks wicked and I really like the new band pictures ... much better than the older ones. I wish you the best of luck with the show on the 30th and don't forget we require pictures/video. As for the EP/Album, remember to do an international release :)

I just thought I would update you guys finally a bit. We have had a progressive year. We succeeded in the contest of bands, we are going to the semifinals! We ended up third out of eight, and the audience was deciding the winners. We also had a few more concerts and are getting prepared for the semifinals of the contest in march, also rehearsing some new progressive tunes.

Also, I have this thing on my hands, it is an audio recording from our last concert in december, in a not that bad quality. Thing is, we have been particularly wasted (mainly me) during this one, so we screwed up looots of stuff and my singing sounds like a drunk fellow singing in a pub. Really do not know if I would make it available for anyone :D

Hi there. We are doing really well. Check out our YouTube channel:

Some new videos there.
Opening for a Blink 182 cover band next week.
Bought myself a cool cap which everyone thinks is hip-hop but I think is skate-punk. Whatever.
Recording coming soon.
See ya, bros :)

I sound (and am) drunk sometimes, but I guess the vocals are never sounding too good live for most amateur bands :D Do you want lyrics to the songs and translations to the slovak ones? Did I get it right?

EDIT: Oh you mean the audio recording when we were drunk that I mentioned earlier? Do you really want it? It is terrible, we sound much better now.
