Do track lengths matter?

Track length not a factor.

I'll take "Chinatown"!

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Tuesday, 25 July 2017 02:58 (four weeks ago) Permalink

tempting !
not sure I'll have the time but I can try to make a quick one before I leave on holidays.
those are pretty unremarkable titles though... maybe "I never wanna be like you" (dedicated to noel G).

Mark G, Tuesday, 25 July 2017 09:01 (four weeks ago) Permalink

For my track, I'm thinking of a mix between The Stone Roses and Primal Scream with the swagger of Oasis.
It will be grand. best rocknroll song since "little james".

My original thought was a Buffalo Springfield cover of "For What It's Worth" but I thought it would be more fun to do an original song.

I love it when people say things like "I've never listened to an Oasis record in full" like they're expecting some kind of medal or prize for it.

that's a good approach : looking forward to hearing the result !
as for me, I think I'll go and make what I think a oasis/liam song could sound like. problem is I'm a bit ill atm so not sure I'll be able to sing...
there should be a liam voice generator !

This is an interesting concept. I am too late for this one.

How do you guys choose which album to "pre-cover"?

the sound of space, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 21:27 (two weeks ago) Permalink

It just kinda happens, I suppose. I think the best choices tend to be long established artists who are usually well past their peak, however defined.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 21:47 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I mean, it helped that the first choice was U2's No Line On the Horizon. That almost set the tone.

seven mambas (m bison), Tuesday, 22 August 2017 02:06 (two days ago) Permalink

I confess i haven't had the time to work on the track as I initially planned it, I worked out the structure of it but realized it would take me forever to do it with my mininmal resources... plus I'm going on holiday next week. So, I'm going to cannibalize an existing track, hopefully it shouldn't take too long - hopefully - I think it should work out fine.

i wrote something last week that was ok, just something tossed off that is pretty much a full song. i tried starting over from scratch yesterday and made a totally different song but i don't like it as much as the first. now that it's down to the wire i'm thinking i'll go back to that first one and clean it up. only problem is i don't think it sounds like Oasis or Liam at all =)

AdamVania (Adam Bruneau), Tuesday, 22 August 2017 13:56 (two days ago) Permalink

The latter has never been a requirement.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 22 August 2017 13:58 (two days ago) Permalink

And thank god for that.

I did sit down to write a plodding indie-rock song with Vox organ and backwards guitars, etc but it ended up sounding like The Doors produced by Lee Perry with a head injury so went for something completely out of keeping instead.

I am, however, hamstrung by an appalling singing voice so will probably need to make it instrumental.
