Some music for y'all
For those that don't know, I do hobby audio mixing for quite a few live bands in my local area... Newcastle. NSW. Australia

Many of these bands are formative, or 'once in a while' gigs, and I try to get basic 'live to stereo' recordings of most of them.

They are in Windows Media format (sorry if that doesn't suit some people), and a fast connection would be advisable !!

The aim is to post recordings in a reasonably good quality format. (its a space vs quality judgement). The turn around time for a particular collection will hopefully be 2-4 weeks

Anyhow..... here are most of the tracks from a recent gig.

Enjoy !! Feed back on if peoples like them would be nice :-)

Back when you first posted this the link did work. ;)

Did you plug cables during the recording? (first song for example)

you mean about 30 secs in??
that was something Justin did to his amp... weird noise hey !

Hey, no sound check etc... set up and play, so naturally the first track is a bit wobbly !! ;)

and the band was just getting to know each other.. :xeye:

You can tell Justin that I almost died with my headphones on.;)

Iīm no recording engineer but I think the mix is quite good.
Donīt really like to hear cover-bands anymore so that doesnīt help.
(played in one myself...)

I could play this to my buddy if you want some professional comments.

Nice idea BTW.

Professional......??? lol !!!
my aim is to get the best recording I can with the simplest gear, on the fly with no post mixing !!

If was aiming at a truly professional product I would approach things much differently !.. like feeding direct outs to a multitrack recorder so I could mix it later.

But by all mean let him hear it, on the proviso he understands how it was recorded :D

As for the "cover" music stuff, I can understand your point.

Justin, Nick, Nik, Annie, Romano all have separate bands they play in and do quite a large proportion of their own music, but when you just throw a band together from bits and pieces (that's what the "Band of No-Goods" is), it is far easier to play stuff they have all at least heard !!

btw.... "Fly on the wall" was actually written by Nik's grandfather :sing:
