i feel your pain as i'm just now starting to wrap up my bands record that's been "in production" for 4.5 years.

anyway.....

that's some good stuff.  played well!!

i can't tell you what i like about it, it's different then most anything i listen to you, but at the same time, it's not.

i hate the "reminds of...." or "you sound like....."

so i won't go there....but there are some really cool ideas, and the arrangements sound like you guys are really thinking about em.

good luck finishing it off.....and hope you don't re-think the recording so many times that it takes 4.5 years to finish............

Hey, thanks for the kind words.  Wow, 4.5 years!  Holy crap, I feel much better now. lol.  Hopefully, it won't take quite that long to wrap this one up (but you never know with my band)...

At times I think it's both a blessing and a curse to have a band with access to a studio 24/7.  Obviously, it's nice not to pay for studio time (well, I'M still paying for it. hehe), but then it becomes "Well, we can just keep on recording more and more takes and more and more tracks until we turn blue in the face."  

Ugh, I think my idea of dropping everything and becoming a Biologist is sounding pretty good right about now...  lol

BTW, I listened to a secret club song on another post and I really dug it. I like how the chorus hits you over the head when ur least expecting it.  Nice work, and excellent drum sounds too.

 What a great idea -

O.K. - I had a band through the mid 90's called Boxing Gandhis. We made two records for Atlantic Records, and toured a bunch until ...sadly i had to fire myself from my own band.

 Then I was in a band called 58 on BMG ( one record,industroglam)

Since 98 or so I've been producing for other people - I write as well.

I've produced for :

  Brian Setzer Orchestra
  Stray Cats
  Meredith Brooks
  Sprung Monkey
  Echo Brain
  Dan Hicks/Tom Waits
 
   and a bunch of others - see my triumphs, and  my shame at allmusic.com

 I enjoy long moonlight strolls from my house to my studio, and have never been CONVICTED for a felony.

  bye bye ---dave darling

Sprung Monkey



Trivial note from me.
I listen to the music from the Chainsmoke Mountain Bike video done by Fox and Sprung Monkey is one of the bands providing music on the video.

I can't remember but I think the video used their debut album. Good band to mountain bike too Smile

Peace,
Dennis

I am bassist in a band that is generally considered a "metal" band (no, not "nu-metal" bullshit), but is too eclectic for our own good, as we tend to also make forays into blues-rock and progressive thrash type dealies).  We are called <a href = http://www.punchclockrock.com>Punchclock</a>

My day (and in the summer: night, and every minute in between) job is Shop Manager for Advanced Production Group - regional live provider in western NY (link is in the sig).  I also "teach" live sound for free, to a bunch of volunteers (it's kind of a club, more than a class) at the local college.  I do this for the love of teaching the craft, and I get to play with toys bought by the state of NY, which can be fun.  I also do free-lance live work, and occasionally a foray into the studio, where I'm least useful, but enjoy it nonetheless.

I'm new here, my name is Pete Weaver.

I've been engineering and mixing audio for years in the analog
and digital environments, while at the same time being a pro
musician. My primary instrument is drums as well as composing,
mostly in the hard rock and funk genres.
The project that's near and dear to my heart which I've been
involved with for several years now is called Half The World.

www.halftheworld.cc

It's hard modern rock with female lead vocals and will appeal to
fans of Staind, Fuel, Evanessence etc. Our most recent album got
solid radio airplay on 112 stations across US and Canada.
I engineered and mixed the album.
The album was self released and we are not signed yet, but the
album has been picked up for release as a finished product by two
labels, one in London and one in Brazil. Meanwhile we continue
performing, writing and recording!

As an audio and mix engineer,
I have a standing offer to anyone who's interested, labels,
artists, studios with overflow work, etc . . .
I will mix any one song by any artist for free, provided they
have a Pro Tools session of the song. Keep the mix, use it on
your album or not, no obligation. My purpose in this is to
establish a name for myself as a mix engineer beyond a regional level.

Here are some quick examples of my work:

Feel free to contact me at anytime!
Glad to be on board with this forum.
