I think Radiohead are probably the best example of a hugely famous and successful band who are Doing It Right. Whether you like their music or not, it's hard to fault their integrity.

Oh, without a doubt. Personally, I haven't listened to much of them and I kick myself for that. From what I've heard over the years, I really like them.

The Bends is the one to get, particularly if like me you prefer their guitar-based stuff to their more ambient/weird side. Every song on that album is great, and several are true masterpieces. OK Computer is great too but not the essential classic that so many people make it out to be. The rest of their stuff can be quite polarising but those two are a good starting point.

Hey guys! =)
Remember I told you all I was in a band?
Remember I said we were going to re-record the three songs that were on our Facebook page??? :D
Well, it's done and you can all listen to our mastered EP!

Here's the link!!!
http://www.facebook.com/#!/BendingOverB ... 2405167945

What our producer did was edit and mix our songs with Pro-Tools, and then sent it to analog tape to give the songs that warm, crisp, vintage sound. =]
I really hope you all like it.

The song "Pictures" is the one where I'm doing lead vocals so you can take a listen if you all want! =]

Thank you, Till. That really means a lot to me. =)
I really owe it to my friends who work in a recording studio...
Sending the recordings to analog tape was the best idea we had.

@bellaXraven: It's a big improvement over the last stuff I heard, well done. Your lead singer sounds like he's getting more confident too (although you're still by far the better of the two of you). My only real criticism is that you should try to tighten up the arrangements a little: the first song is far too long, which is a shame because it's pretty catchy, but the instrumental breaks between verses could be half as long as they are now, or even shorter, and the song would sound a lot punchier. When you're doing Ramones-style punk you want your songs to be between a minute-and-a-half to three minutes as a general rule; if they're going to be longer then they need more parts than just verses and choruses, or more instrumental texture.

Similarly, an idea I had for "Pictures": rather than starting with the band playing as it does now, why not try singing the first couple of lines with no instrumental backing at all, and then BAM! straight into the rest of the song with no messing about. Little touches like that can make a huge difference to the energy of the performance, and also make your songs stand out from the crowd. Not that I'm telling you you should use that exact idea, of course, but it works as an illustration of what I'm getting at.

But overall, yeah, :thumbup:

Caribou,
Thank you for your honesty. It's greatly, GREATLY appreciated in every way. :)
I was a little dissapointed with the first song...you're right. It is a bit longer than we intended to.
We may re-do it in the future when we eventually get an album going. Right now, we're taking it one step at a time.
I'm glad you like my voice. =]
For the song Pictures, we may try that during one of our shows. I'll see what they think.
Thank you so much for constructive critcism and ideas!!!

MUSE's The 2nd Law is a damn fine record.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JSD0hl9 ... re=related
I'm diggin' it more than The Resistance.
Also, Adam Green and Binki Shaprio from Little Joy made a record together and they released their first track.
"Here I Am"
It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

Any Deftones fans here?
If you are, I'm sure you've heard by now that their bass player, Chi Cheng, died last night. :(
He was only 42...it's such a shame.

I've always liked Deftones, they were one of the first bands I ever saw live (on the Adrenaline tour) and one of only two or three notable bands from the "nu metal" scene to have made consistently good, interesting music throughout their career. It's a real shame about Chi, but it all stems from the car accident he had about five years ago, and he's been pretty much comatose since then, so it's probably for the best. That wasn't really much of a way to go on living. :(

Yeah, when I found out about Chi, I was sad, but somewhat relieved since he was pretty much in a vegetative state for all of these years.
I just feel bad for his family...especially his sister who survived the car accident... :(
Well, my band is thinking of covering "Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" in the future so we'll see how it comes out. :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Watsky Actually was guest starring in one of ERB episodes....

Yep, he was playing Shakespeare and the fourth Doctor. Auntie Wikipedia confirms.

New Bowie
