The album is very mellow...actually more mellow than I had anticipated. It helped me get through the hangover from hell.

He has a beautiful voice and thought provoking lyrics accompany. I like how he remains pure to a distinct Irishness. The lad's a gun'un

Evening cockthroats.

I've been playing around with guitar rig. Sound qualities a bit poor, but that's good because it means no one will be able to make out the shit lyrics:



Goodnight cockthroats

I was in a band called Twe1v3. We've got some stuff on myspace. Sadly not done anything this year. :(

Right, so as some of you may know I've been working on my debut studio EP. We're nearing completion and I'm very happy with the outcome. I wanted to post up a link to a track that will be on the EP called Bumblebee. Some of you will have heard it before, others may not have. Link is below, and you can just click the play button in the player.

Either way, cheers for all the support lads n lassies. Much love from the Kinkster

Bumblebee

Editing my own posts.
Based on a discussion (rant) in The Voice thread here..

About people just singing and not writing anything...I've written a little ditty, called Sing For Me Mable.

http://soundcloud.com/baron-von-bangerang/sing-for-me-mable

It's very rough and unfinished, considering I did it in about 3 hours. There's no bass or drums or anything really apart from the basics, and I got a bit bored near the end cos the football was about to start and just started saying "feck you", but it's full enough. I might add to it later. Depending on whether I drink enough basically. Anyway, BLAW! I thought I'd put it in here cos I deleted one the other day. I'd had a bit too much to drink that day.

Here's one of a few songs I played to some mostly uninterested students the other night. Still a few bits of it I want to change, but I'll probably never get round to it, so:



Since the mic on my laptop is so crap at recording guitar, and I appear to be the only person on earth without a professional recording studio in my bedroom, I've tried to use my keyboard to add bits other than guitar, and then record it plugged direct to my laptop without making it sound like I've constructed some instruments out of cardboard and attempted to play them whilst fighting a lion.

Consequently I've decided I should probably leave my keyboard alone in the future.

I will also one day get around to writing better lyrics. Well, that's probably a lie, as doing so would consume time, but it's the thought that counts.

Your voice reminds me of Frank Turner. Also, the feck you bit echoes my sentiments on the matter.

3 gold stars.

Sorry. It's a pickup for acoustic guitars. You do this -


- plug the cable into preferably a professional bedroom recording studio, but a mic input on a laptop will work, just a mono signal - and record away.

Probably won't sound super-clean, but it will sound much better than just recording into a computer mic.

Wrote this song yesterday and finished it off today. Not the happiest of tunes but straight from the heart. Lyrics should be included. It's pretty much about growing old, being forgotten and losing loved ones.

Would you believe it's my birthday today :D
Sounts a bit heart of saturday Tom Waits style (at the start) Happy birthday Kinks!

Thought I'd put this new song I wrote up for the fun of it. It's early days for it but I'm quite interested to see where it will go with the full band. I reckon it has the potential to be epic. I wanted to capture a sort of maritime feel to the sound.

Oh...and the bell at the end? That's the missus coming in from shopping. Impeccable timing.

Poor Maggie

When I’m awake it is Sunday
You look so pretty in your dress
Your old boy thinks that we should marry
And you want your children so I’ll sleep

This ship it is sinking a skeletal crew
The dogs ate your flesh in the light of the moon
And poor Maggie she waits like a blind lonely fool
The sirens blow waves where the bodies are strewn
And the devil his white foamy swell sucks you in two by two

When I’m awake it is Sunday
And you look so pretty in your dress
Your mother’s so perfect it’s annoying
But she lies to your father so I’ll sleep

This ship it is sinking a skeletal crew
The dogs ate your flesh in the light of the moon
And poor Maggie she waits like a blind lonely fool
The sirens blow waves where the bodies are strewn
And the devil his white foamy swell sucks you in two by two
And the devil his white foamy swell sucks you in two by two
