View Full Version : Hear my Band!

Yes folks, at least you have the chance to hear my band.

This is our punk-rock version of the song, 'What If God Was One Of Us'. We recorded it on my friend's cell-phone, during a spout of boredom. We would've recorded it onto casette via my aiwa microphone, had we had a cassette laying around. I assure you, we don't sound nearly so bad live. But this recording is so hilariously funny sounding, that I must share it.

Now, since it's rather difficult to tell what instruments are what, I'll break it down for you.

It starts with me playing a few power-chords, and then drums break in.
Then the other guitarist plays the noticeable melody of the song 3 times or so.
And then a bass and drums break and then more of the melody which breaks into the punk powerchord version of the song, where you can clearly hear me playing the power chords. Then some solos, more melodic stuff and fin.

Enjoy.
Note, this is the same song, I'm just putting too links, in the unlikely event that more should try and download it, than is possible with yousendit.com. Should we come to a point where we either have downloaded it too many time, or people still want it after a week, I will of course, upload it again, due to popular demand. And people who read my LJ should download it from there, simply because that's also a different link. One should use Quicktime to play this song.

My ears hurt :(

Damn your AWFUL recording :/

I have no expertise in music, but it would sound fuuun, if it wasn't that distorted... I think :/ Oh I like it anyway.

tsk tsk Iza, if it sounded good, and was recorded with good quality, then it wouldn't be nearly as punk.

I know what you mean though, I generally turn it down while listening to it. Cell-phones are terrible at picking up different ranges.

Can't listen to it since Iz stole my headphones! Anyway, you posted this in the wrong section, cripple.

True, but I'm important enough to be able to use this forum to further my band.

I wouldn't know about cell-phones, I use mine to call and sms. I don't even know if I have a voice recorder. I sure as hell don't have a camera though :/

Kiki wanna hear? I'll borrow you the headphones ;)

I didn't read any of what you just wrote. What sort of music do you play, and what do you play in the band?

You can't stop National-Internationalism my friend, may the nationalist working class step forward. Hoch die internazionale-nazionale solidaritet!

I don't own a cell-phone, I can't even get one to unlock. So this was done without my involvement really. Except for the instrument playing.

We play a large variety of things, older rock, jazzy-swingy type stuff, funk, folk, punk, hiphop, our band has a huge influence base, since we all like different types of music.

Hahaha, the best Joan Osborne rip off. Very punk quality indeed. I approve! =)

Excellent, so far that's one in favor, and one sort of in favor.

That's pretty cool. It's good to have a variety.

heheheh - i like it :D but ergh; horrible horrible recording. Methinks you should re-record it and stick it up again. You gonna have lyrics?

Couldn't resist it. :p

yeah, I may be singing with my frog-like voice, or maybe not. We plan on better recording later on.

And don't worry about it, I've been making terrible grammar mistakes in several languages this night.

That was plain horrible. It didn't make me want to rock out at all...good or bad recording it was just a rehash of the song in a more boring mode. Could you turn the main guitar up any louder?

Nope, we're going for a more refined audience than you.

I can't wait till I've heard that live. yes yes, the recording is aweful, but otherwise (not the word I'm looking for, but whatever) it sounds yay. very yay.

wheelchairman
04-13-2005, 09:11 AM
Yay! I figure that this recording, quality and all, is still superior to the Sex Pistol's entire career.

JoY

I wouldn't say that. but you are, my dear. you are.

ah perhaps you like them better.

Btw, at some point in time, in the last two weeks I made a topic called 'joyyyy' where I included some pictures from France. You weren't online at the time me thinks, however I plan on updating it in a few days when I get more pictures (so no need for a reply just yet.)

Just giving you some info there peaches.

JoY
04-13-2005, 09:18 AM

I'll patiently wait for more pictures.

Yes'um, I thinks you be desperately out of touch with bbs life, oh what a pity, what a pity hehe.

So what's keeping you busy over there in Amsterdam?

Speaking of which, buying my tickets via train, so I won't be buying them this month. Which is huge economic relief.
