General music banter. Gigs, reviews, new bands...

Fresh from the studio - our EP, pls have a listen :)

Postby Assmask » 18th May 10, 22:58

Our EP is now available! OK, it's available digitally, at least. I've bunged it up on Bandcamp so, if you wish, you can hear each track in full. If you wanna buy it in high quality then, well, great :) If you just want it in high quality without paying then IM me and I'll email it to you.

Physical CD's will also be available once I have managed to source some CD label printing.

The EP is called Attitude.

I hope it's well received. I think the recording is about as good as it's gonna get (without throwing serious money at it), so if it's not enjoyed then we may as well just quit now! However, we are very pleased with it, Frankie from Einsteinstudios (near Antrim) did the recording and the mix for us and quite frankly we're worried about living up to it during live performances!

We would appreciate feedback if you feel able to say something. But please don't be too horrible. I may be full of bluster but I'm a fragile soul under all that. Besides, remember the finger, eh? Eh? EH?

We're going to place one track as a single on the local Northern Irish chart, if any of you have any suggestions as to which one it should be, please do say.

Very punky, in a kinda punkish way.

Good work, now get out there, turn it up to 11 and play it.

halfway through the first track and already i'm thinking i'd definitely cross your smelly palm (sorry, couldn't resist... :lol: ) with an agreed number of pounds for a CD copy of this when you get round to having them made!

i'll be doing an online radio show this sunday from 9-11pm on www.endeavouronline.net, and i'll happily play a song off this and give you guys a bit of enthusiastic shout-outage on air if you like?

track 3 is great . the whole ep is pretty good actually, although i'm not a fan of that style of vocals. some nice ideas in there and some great guitar work. i will try and download in a week or so - when i have a bit more time.
good work fellas.
why do i have to ignore you to get your attention?

Definitely worth downloading (in fact I'm doing so as we speak - or rather type). You can definitely hear your influences in there (which given the quality of those influences can be no bad thing), and they are well worked together.

My personal preferences so far would be "Attitude" and "U Urself then Me". This may be because I can hear more of a Wildhearts influence in these :D .

Thank you Jules! Attitude is my fave also, in terms of the songwriting, but in terms of how the song has developed through the recording process I think U Urself Then Me has a great sound.

However, as I have been listening to nothing else for the last two months (and not for pleasure - listening to the CD like you read Shakespear in an English class) I am sick to the back teeth of all of them and I wish I had never formed this bloody band.

Good stuff! Nice and punky, with crunchy guitars. Track 3 made the best first impression for me too.

Very favourably impressed. 8-)
Really enjoyed it. Chunky sounding geetars, lovely spangly solos, cool lyrics - all in all a crowd-pleaser - would love to hear em live.

In the meantime I shall download when I get my home internet connection back.

Great way to start my Friday. Cheers
