I am just plzd I got something halfway decent sounding out of guitar and voice on a laptop microphone. On a shitty laptop, no less.

Just stuck the two tracks from our newest nostalgia-tinged double B-side on myspace: All-Star Wrestling/Morning Mist

we have a live set coming up on WPRB this Wednesday on the jon solomon show. http://www.wprb.com

I finally recorded vocals for this 'plucky duck' song, it might be the first time I have used a swear? it is a song about libertarians mostly.

m bison, Sunday, 22 July 2007 02:01 (twelve years ago) link

Fuk, I just heard the mix from the PRB show - the recording was completely butchered - it's like you only hear half a mix. ;_;

Hurting 2, Sunday, 22 July 2007 05:55 (twelve years ago) link

m bison, I dig those panned background vocal bits, it's sweet on headphones (and weed).

St3ve Go1db3rg, Monday, 23 July 2007 09:16 (twelve years ago) link

And that's a bummer hurting - was it mixed live and recorded to a single stereo track then?

St3ve Go1db3rg, Monday, 23 July 2007 09:17 (twelve years ago) link


Hurting 2, Monday, 23 July 2007 12:32 (twelve years ago) link

You can basically hear vocals and lead guitar really well (and lead guitar is mostly single-note lines that sound weird by themselves), the bass ok, the steel guitar a bit, the other guitar (which plays all the meaty chord parts) not at all, and in my drums you can barely hear the snare.

Hurting 2, Monday, 23 July 2007 12:35 (twelve years ago) link

Here's a couple of my tracks, the most recent is more of a demo (the rest are mixed & mastered, newest being "Grunge regurgitation")
or www.operatorplug.com for more of a bio.

WPRB show can be streamed here:

Sounds better than I initially thought - not the greatest mix but I think the vocals come through really nicely.

Hurting 2, Sunday, 29 July 2007 20:51 (twelve years ago) link

That is kind of a weird snareless mix, but I don't think it sounds too bad. I just listened to the tune on your myspace, by the way, and I like it a lot.

St3ve Go1db3rg, Sunday, 29 July 2007 21:13 (twelve years ago) link

This is such a great thread. I get to hear so much great music from you music-making types! As a special shout out though: Andi Mags, you are a genius.

I know, right?, Sunday, 29 July 2007 21:42 (twelve years ago) link

xpost - They had the overhead mic pointed straight backwards to the wall because the mic stand was broken -- that may explain the lack of snare. ps thanks

Hurting 2, Sunday, 29 July 2007 21:47 (twelve years ago) link

I've just stuck up 4 demos on MySpace. They're not really finished and some of them are silly sketches, but I like them. Do you? http://www.myspace.com/mightysandyheathtransmitters

the next grozart, Sunday, 12 August 2007 13:11 (twelve years ago) link

Listening to Andi Mags now - nice stuff!

Me doing overdubs on a track...

Elvis Telecom, Tuesday, 14 August 2007 19:50 (twelve years ago) link

And finally... Four new tracks up on MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/exdetectives

Elvis Telecom, Wednesday, 15 August 2007 05:51 (twelve years ago) link

sounds good

n/a, Wednesday, 15 August 2007 15:02 (twelve years ago) link

I can't remember if I posted this before but we added three live tracks to our myspace, including a cover of Hangin' on the Telephone:

n/a, Wednesday, 15 August 2007 15:14 (twelve years ago) link

Oh and we're live on the radio tomorrow at about 1 p.m. CDT if anyone wants to listen. The station streams live, so you can listen on your computer. The info is in the newest blog posting on the above myspace page.

n/a, Wednesday, 15 August 2007 15:15 (twelve years ago) link

added you n/a

btw, all, if you get a friend request from Eclipse Music, that's me in store form.

The above post is me forgetting which email address I actually use when not making joeks on nu-ILX.

John Justen, Saturday, 18 August 2007 00:10 (twelve years ago) link

new old song, "Sirens" up:


latebloomer, Wednesday, 22 August 2007 00:16 (twelve years ago) link


Last track of the four (new one)is just me and my jazzmaster - recorded yesterday. A bit rough, but....

Dr.C, Monday, 27 August 2007 16:12 (twelve years ago) link


song is 'baby when i found it', 10 extra bonus points to whomever can guess the sample

m bison, Wednesday, 29 August 2007 05:14 (twelve years ago) link

No clue what the sample is, but it's a cool track. I especially like the spacy stuff at the end.

n/a, Wednesday, 29 August 2007 12:37 (twelve years ago) link

Sounds good m bison! reckon it needs a vocal (preferably vocodered or really prince-ish) and it could be a hit.

the next grozart, Friday, 31 August 2007 01:22 (twelve years ago) link

We played our three newest songs live on the radio a couple of weeks ago, they are now up on our myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/thefakefictionsband. I'm especially happy with "Radical Movement."

n/a, Wednesday, 5 September 2007 12:21 (twelve years ago) link

I got drunkish once and made this 10-minute noise barrage in FL Studio (which I chopped in half, putting one half in each channel) but I'm too embarrassed to post it.

Stevie D, Wednesday, 5 September 2007 16:16 (twelve years ago) link


John Justen, Thursday, 6 September 2007 07:04 (twelve years ago) link

There's no judgment here. This is a safe place.

m bison, Friday, 7 September 2007 20:14 (twelve years ago) link

Oh my god, it's giving me a headache listening to it and it's EXTREMELY loud/distorted and is simply the byproduct of 3 shots of rum with blue-raspberry lemonade kool-aid. Extremely fun to make, but a chore to actually listen to. and the channels are not sync'd properly.


Stevie D, Saturday, 8 September 2007 00:50 (twelve years ago) link

to be honest I think I was trying to completely rip off of Yo La Tengo's "Spec Bebop"

Stevie D, Saturday, 8 September 2007 00:54 (twelve years ago) link

Found a new home for rap beat depository:


One of the songs uses cowbells pitched down to sound like steel drums (probably the only drum sounds I've actually recorded myself).

m bison, Saturday, 8 September 2007 07:28 (twelve years ago) link

Hey, I made a new track - "These Once Were Men". I'm gonna add maybe some better drums and a few more lead vocals, but I'm pleased with how it is so far.


the next grozart, Wednesday, 12 September 2007 14:04 (twelve years ago) link

My band is going in the studio in two weeks! Been waiting for this for, like, five years.

Jordan, Wednesday, 12 September 2007 17:52 (twelve years ago) link

Which band?

n/a, Wednesday, 12 September 2007 18:06 (twelve years ago) link

Is the 0ptimistic still a going concern?

n/a, Wednesday, 12 September 2007 18:06 (twelve years ago) link


0ptimistic has not been very active at all but is still technically a thing. They played a show a few weeks ago but I had a gig with another band and couldn't do it.

Jordan, Wednesday, 12 September 2007 19:31 (twelve years ago) link


The drums (cough) "need work". Like, a lot of work.

Pashmina, Monday, 24 September 2007 09:19 (twelve years ago) link

two weeks pass...

The other night I got a bunch of people round and had a drunken jam - people hitting pots and pans, me on guitar, flatmate on bass and a particularly good drummer friend of ours. Made a track totally on the spot, drunk out of our minds. Great fun really. It's up now as "Belligernet Cnt Jam 1" at The Mighty Sandy Heath Transmitters site. Have a listen, it's drunk and a good laugh.

the next grozart, Wednesday, 10 October 2007 13:45 (twelve years ago) link

That was excellent!

snoball, Wednesday, 10 October 2007 14:53 (twelve years ago) link

haha, cheers. Seriously?!

the next grozart, Wednesday, 10 October 2007 19:36 (twelve years ago) link

I like the distortion.
