Hey, you guys aren't bad; you had a good groove going there and you look really comfortable on stage which is a major obstacle for a lot of young, new bands. I've never been much of a Floyd fan post-Syd Barrett, but I do like that song, and that was a decent version.

You're a long way from sucking though. You were in tune and on-beat, nothing wrong at all that a few months of regularly singing at high volume for a couple of hours at a time wouldn't fix. Singing is 90% confidence anyway, and it looks like you've already got that down. Everything else is just icing.

Well, John Paul Jones is one of the best bassists of all time but even he wasn't above grooving on one note for almost the whole song once in a while. ;)

I'm in a punk rock band called Bending Over Backwards!

Here is the link to the band page on Facebook!

http://www.facebook.com/bendingoverbackwards

NOTE: I'm only singing backing vocals since these recordings were from a while ago...
During live shows, I sing much more and I have more energy in my voice as well.
The recordings are rather old and I think my voice improved since then...

If you like what you hear, give us a like and tell all of your friends! =) It would be really awesome if we get some kind of exposure from other countries! :]

Oh man, if you just lived this side of the pond...

No kidding, I was trying to get a band off the ground a little while back with a drummer and guitarist, but I was adamant that the bass player had to be a girl who plays and sings like Kim Deal. We eventually broke up without playing a single show because we couldn't find anyone suitable, but I'd have hired you in a heartbeat. You fuckin' rock, girl!

(Can't say I'm too fond of your lead singer, but the songs aren't bad either :P )

Nothing against Eminem, but to be fair, if you take out the choruses from those songs, both of which are sampled from other songs, then what's left does sound quite a bit like a lot of other rap. Granted he's a better lyricist than most, but still.

Wow! Thank you, Caribou! That really means a lot!
Here's the good news! I'm convincing him to let me sing more, and he agreed! =) He's all for it!
See, we're trying to share the spotlight...to show that there are two vocalists and not a lead vocalist with a backing band. However, the vocals were a little uneven. But like I said, he's all for allowing me to sing more! :)
Once we get into the studio, I'll sing more lead and I'll have you all check it out!

Again, thank you for the compliment. :] It really means a lot to me.

I'm on contrary very musical, I have great hearing and quite nice voice, although I can't play any instrument... Pity, I would like to play Piano, or even better, Pipe Organ..... Or, even such instrument like harpsichord.... :awesome:

maybe next year after my exams.
@Eggy: I began learning piano some time ago. ( my grandparents wanted that... but it wasnt the right thing for me9. I forgot nearly all after years off nearly not playing. The only title I still can play is smoke on the water from deep purple (was also a very good band and i may add: the doors) .

If you want to learn an instrument, go ahead and do it! Music's a great thing to be a part of.

Also, chicks dig musicians. ;)

Thanks for the compliments and advice man, that means a lot coming from you. :) I'm assuming we had gotten over the whole "nervous" part since this was our 4th gig and the last song of the set, so I'm actually really comfortable on stage whenever I get up to do the occasional song at an Open Mic Night. And that Zep song is wicked, I was actually just listening to that album today.

That doesn't sound stupid at all. Some of my favourite bands have accordion players (The Pogues, Gogol Bordello). Even Nirvana used one once.

I totally wish I'd learned to play harmonica. It's such a useful tool for a singer to be able to pull out but I was such a punk snob when I was first learning to play that the idea of playing harmonica was horrible to me. I wish I'd been more open-minded back then 'cause I play in a much more bluesy style now than I used to. And I don't really see myself getting round to learning a new instrument to any decent level these days.

Sure. But if someone says they don't like rap, telling them to go listen to Eminem isn't likely to change their minds. Chances are they've already heard plenty of Eminem. There's a pretty good chance he's even part of what they're complaining about. ;)

Eminem is very good at what he does, no question. But he's not the Messiah. He's just a very naughty boy.

You sly fucker. I was actually about to post that until I hit the reply button.

But go check out some OutKast, Deltron 3030 or even some De La Soul or Run DMC if you want some good rap.
