So yeah, here I have, for you all, a recording of a gig I played in May as part of an assessment on my degree.

The quality isn't great, I stuck my mic infront of the tv speaker to record the sound from the already not-too-great quality video of the performance, but still, here it is for anyone who's interested. :)

Set list:

Fire (Hendrix)
One Way or Another (Blondie)
Fill My Little World (The Feeling)
Original Composition 1
Sunburn (Muse)
Dream a Little Dream (Our own version)
This Charming Man (The Smiths)
Original Compositon 2

The vid ran out of tape about a third of the way through the last song, which was dissapointing, but I thought i'd put up what we did get of the song.

At the very least listen to Fire, the end of Sunburn, and the two compositions. :p

Let me know what you lot think of it. :)

CLICKY!

Nope, we changed it from glam rock to something we'd actually be good at.

i liked comp 1 as well man... I wasn't sure when it started but when you got going it was sweet... :cool:

Some nice runs in there Sean, and the odd cheeky tap. Sounded almost majestic towards the end... sort of Brian May ish (no offence if I've inadvertantly caused any there :p )

Sounds like a confident live performance... good work!

I'm still listening to it, and what I've heard so far is excellent! Like Eric said, you guys are really tight, you have a good dynamic; your singer's got a great voice; some great piano work in Original Comp. 1; and your drummer is excellent too. And needless to say, your playing is just great; I agree with Ren, you do remind me of Brian May here - and he's one of my biggest guitar heroes, so I'm not trying to cause insult either! :D

I couldn't hear the bass properly, but that's probably because of my dodgy computer speakers :o

Good job!

Thanks guys. :D

There is a vid but it was on a video tape and at the moment I can't get it onto the computer; the audio I've posted here was the audio from that vid though.

Thanks for all the kind words. Believe it or not there wasn't a single tap in that performance; and I'm very honoured to be compared to Brian May!

The bass is kinda low in the mix, but that can't be helped I guess.

We're going to start working on a lot of original stuff with our new drummer once we figure out somewhere to practice (with College being closed for the summer). Hopefully we'll get some stuff recorded in a proper studio. :)

I'll come play near you all when we start touring. :p
