Thank you Forbidden Colours, I'll try to keep the tunes coming!
Also ALL puppy's are mind puppy's!
Awesome! Bouncy, trippy and huge fun. Brilliant pans, sweet mix, amazing lyrics. This even loops around seamlessly. Top class! (We want a mind puppy.)
Wow. This is wild tune. I like the funky little synth parts. Nice groove too. Not the kind of music I would usually listen to but I enjoyed it. Well done! Thumbs
im really into the synths on this song they sound so strange the amazing sounds they make now days i love it
I like the sounds bouncing along to the beat and the way you reign them in. On the other hand, I hear you putting many different sounds into this and letting them do what they do - kind of like putting a bunch of delicious ingredients into a blender without a top and letting them fly all over the place. Some might not appreciate the mess, but I'm one of those that want as much of that mess to come my way because it tastes so good! LMAO!!! I have a MacBook Pro too with GarageBand, so I know exactly what you mean about how it doesn't seem to handle tracks the way you expect it to handle them. Just add as much RAM as possible! Love the lyrics on this by the way!
Thanks Guys, I guess It's really all about the "search" and also just having fun with equipment, who know's maybe all this technology is leading us somewhere?
Gotta say the drum track sounds great Mr. Shields. Off the wall this one and immediately reminded me of Gong circa mid/late 70s. Maybe you are related to Daevid Allen in some antipodean way lol. There's a degree of humour in here i must say and not just in the lyrics; the music has a playful attitude. Production is very ambient in a totally "right" way to my ears. Well done and gets my thumzup. Andy
The electronica element is very strong. Quite a bizarre vocal melody but i know you always strive to produce something different and thought provoking. I always like reading your lyrics as i listen - many unusual and original ideas to be found. Thumbs. James
WOW the intro is like a fresh beverage and the feel of this likes me ..mind expanding too the guitar arround when you stop singing the first time and the voice effects are very cool
Really like the TB synth. This is outside the box. Very outside the box. Thanks for the comment on my new track. Thanks. Mani
Thank's very much guys, I really was just having a bit of a blast, trying to do re-mixing, And Terry, that's hilarious, about the "Mind Puppy" ("Mind F.......ng") Actually those lyrics would actually make more sense?
speaking of a total mind f...., has anyone seen a film called "Cypher" I saw it on DVD the other night, amazing paranoia driven Sci-Fi yarn, amazing concepts, and very well acted too!
A hook laden tune with really good beats and always that touch of unexpected.It jumps from happy pop to the dark sounding sections with ease, not sure how you've pulled that off but you have.Nice work Andrew, Thumbs. Gibbo
Glad you're bringing the oldies to light for us to enjoy. 80's electro- vibe that makes me yearn for the early experimental days...wait...you're bringing us there by making the effort to re-work these tracks!!...the star is simplicity, and your story-telling voice...part-sung, part-spoken...always catches my ear for a hypnotic effect..."mind-puppy" sounded a lot like "mind-F---ing" not sure where my mind was ;P As usual, the lyrics...cause a lot of smiles. Always an enjoyable listen!
Unusual track, entertaining lyrics and good use of a variety of synth sounds. Production is spot on. Gets my vote :) Mal.
Hello, always heard that Macs were very good for recording music?.. much better than windows?. Im trying to playback your track but im having constant problems with the music player (again)... sorry about this.. Ive tried 4 times now, i will have to come back soon.. Maybe my connection?.. could be the site music player?.. Thank you!
I am a visual artist who has been dabbling into music for a while now, and I started recording in about 1988, or therabouts, when I purchased a Tascam Porta-One four track cassette deck, which is still going strong!
I tend to just let ideas happen as they come, and try to get the ideas down as they come, and I see this methodology as being similiar, in some ways to methods of Surrealist visual art, but I don't try to force anthing, it really is (for me) about the flow of ideas, and (hopefully) this can resonate with the listener, and become an emotional experience?
Lately I have been very impressed with the quality of recording possible with computer DAWS and my second hand laptop computer, is now my workstation "go to" of choice, I just love the ease of use and amazing sound quality now available!
One day I'll get back to analog techniques to see if I'm missing anything sound-wise, but for now, I am a convert to digital, and why not!
