So… after yesterday’s rant about the unrecordable vocal, I came home today and decided to tackle it head on. I marched straight into the studio, loaded the ‘pain in the arse’™ up and stood in front of the microphone. Now… you’ve got to picture the scene. Remember when Tyson bit Holyfield’s ear off? , well… it was similar to that. Except no Tyson, no Hollyfield and no ear biting. But the spirit was there. I hit record and just sang it – one take. And you know what… it sounds absolutely cracking! I have it! I have recorded the unrecordable vocal. Unfortunately, as the song is a wild and wonderful epic there are still another couple of minutes to fill with words. Words which I have yet to write. But I have a good idea for lyrical content now. I thought I had the name for the song but yesterday’s entry on this site has made me rethink. “Dorian Gray” would be a cool name for the song. I shall set about the task of completing this monster of a song. If only you all knew just how long this song has been gathering dust. To finish it would be like saying goodbye to a piece of me!
A music recommendation for you. I’ve been listening to “The Wild Hunt” by “The Tallest Man on Earth“. An awesome album. This guy has an ear for a melody. Great vocals and great guitar playing. There is still something to be said for a good tune and it’s good to know there are people out there flying the flag! Sometimes I feel so alone, ha ha. The production of his album is interesting. It is raw in the extreme… but the songs shine. I suggest you youtube “King of Spain“. And then remember who turned you onto it!
