Whole lotta shakin' goin' on...
Your description is perfect. Don't quite know what to make of this, Bud. It is very spontaneous and with excellent instrumentalists doing their thing, but I assume it was all YOU, so I am pretty blown away by your skill. Put me on edge, but I think that was the point...So, well done. (And for some inexplicable alignment of the stars, I'm the first to comment.) You always turn in a solid performance that showcases your varied interests and skills. You have an amazing range.
Peace...out!
Paul

I don't know who all those other people are
that live in my computer - but I'm the guy playing a bunch of electric guitar tracks. Some straight up and some chopped up and abused. Bass is apple loops and drums are Drums on Demand. This was done in one sitting to work out the kinks from the week. Thanks for your generous comments.

I like the BL comment. that describes this well.
the driving repetitive bassline reminds me a bit of chemical brothers or something like that.
pretty groovy s*#t!

That driving bassline is courtesy
of some amped up little dude who hangs out on my hard drive. I think he calls himself Edgy Rock Bass. The mother sure can play.

Whoa, those driving guitars. Reminds me of some bands in the 70's that could play for hours and still keep it fresh and interesting. Killer stuff here with a lot of inspired little gems tucked here and there.

Nice work indeed bud. Fine tune!
Peace,
Doug

Hello Brooklyn !
Got up this morning, bright sunshine over Paris, first thing I heard is your "Beast". Woa ! Great start for the big week-end. Enjoyed your guitar improvisations on the great bed your created. A perfect mental preparation for the big "petanque contest" set up for a friend birthday !
All the best, bud.

I think...
...that 'down-dirt-fast and loose' looks good on you... Your 'smaller' and faster projects seem to come out very interesting and infectious... I think you chose a get drum loop or loops.... Scary bit o' Blake you chose to accompany it, too...

The drums are DOD - two different styles
laid over each other - with more or less of one or the other coming in and out. I like doing that. Then there's an electronica dance drum break from apple. Thanks for the support on these quickies.

Enjoyed it...thanks
Was intrigued by all the interesting dark distortion effects happening in the background (appeals to my more techno-experimental compositional bent), which add a very appealing edge to the great guitar work and pumpin' bassline. Nice mix of sounds...This is the first of your tracks I've listened to, but looking forward to checking out some more!

bud said 3093 days ago (June 5th, 2009)
This track actualy started
as a collection of distorted atmospheres with no tune in mind. It was really just an aggro ambient number that I decided to jam guitar over then I tweaked drums and bass to make it a song of sorts.

VicDiesel said 3093 days ago (June 5th, 2009)
Loud!
Good track. It's easy to make something loud by just distorting and compressing it, it's harder to make a mix that is intrinsically loud. Yours is very good. The loudness doesn't just come from the distorted guitars, but also from stacking sound upon sound and still keeping it all audible. Cool.

I am so glad to be here, and lucky enough to find such kick-ass guitar noise - and kindred "other" noise - happening. How many years is it since I stopped complaining the radio and just turned it off? Dunno. But I no longer complain that I can't find any good music. Thanks. I have no criticism... sorry!
