So we had a lovely cold practice on Wednesday and we filmed some of it. This is one of the videos from that practice. The song is called Bad Book Bindings and it will be on our upcoming album. I really love this song. It’s a fun dancy type of song.
Hope you enjoy it too!
I have succumbed to the dreaded man flu. Typical really as I have 2 weeks off from work. There is an upside to this though. It means that the only energy I have is for updating digital things.
As such, I have created a reverbnation for my solo music [The Bastard Child] and cleaned up our last.fm and soundcloud pages. I also decided that I should make our debut EP available as a free digital download.
http://www.last.fm/music/Marry+Another/36+Guns,+No+Souls+%5BEP%5D – For the last.fm peeps.
http://soundcloud.com/marryanother/sets/36-guns-no-souls/ – For the Soundcloud peeps.
If you think that I should make it free elsewhere let me know.
If you want to send me lemsip or chocolate to help beat man flu that would be pretty darn nice of you!
Or just tell me a joke!
Following on from Adrians post. I wanted to fill you in on the recording process for this song. We wanted a specific sound for it. I hope that we got it.
The feel of the song we were going for was that of a campfire sing-a-long. We decided to record Adrian live with just 2 mics in the room aimed at him but not closely. We wanted to capture the rooms natural acoustic properties and not make it sound too polished. Basically, vocal and Continue reading
I haven’t written anything for a while, far too long a while in my opinion. So with that thought churning within me: here is a song. It’s interesting I think. And here is how I came about it:
I was in receipt of a letter, not just any old letter; I get them from time to time. This was a letter from a Japanese POW Camp. And literally, it made me think.
So as with all the stuff I’ve written about war, this became something I wanted documenting. With this impetus I turned my inspiration into a song; this isn’t words to music as such. My ideas married with theirs.
Anyway, I had an idea, because my grandfather was a participant. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it.
OK internet people, here’s the thing. I have been slowly getting around to syncing up the audio/video for our homemade video for the song ‘Tonight We Are The World.’ I had all this extra footage that, well, made me laugh. So I did what anyone with spare time did. I cut the footage up and made a ‘behind the scenes’ type video. It made me laugh. I showed it to Ade, he also laughed, as did his dad. So now we have this video knocking about. If you want to see it let us know. I really want it uploaded, so even if it is just one comment saying yes, it will be loaded up! Your call internet.
To be fair to Ade, I have a video of me doing karaoke in Japan. I can load this up as well if it is requested. (don’t request it)
On the ‘Tonight’ video front, it’s almost done. Hopefully getting the final shots on Tuesday then just a case of editing and then it’s all sorted.
Your friendly neighbourhood bassist.
Well, that title is a little misleading. I have swapped out some tracks in the ‘recordings’ section. ‘Grave’ and ‘A Widows Lament’ are now there for your listening pleasure. They have been available to listen to elsewhere on the net. If this is your one stop Marry Another shop though, then these will be new to you!
Enjoy. I know I just did. I forgot how lovely ‘Grave’ sounds, especially listening on my headphones. 🙂
