I hope you enjoy the video. It’s just a nice simple bit of footage of the two of us (Carl & Adrian) jamming in the studio.
So a short while ago, myself and Adrian recorded a quick acoustic number ‘live’ in the studio. We also set up a few cameras and filmed it. I am not a video editor at all, but I can amble through most programs. This is what I have been doing for the last few weeks with it. I have used a few different programs and finally found one that I get on with. I am still using it in a very backwards way, but it is the easiest of the programs. However, I had to convert one of the files to a different format, yada yada yada. Needless to say, it has been a little frustrating.
Today I finally finished it!!!!!
I am just rendering the video with a few different file types to try and get the best sounding audio from it that I can. Then it will be on our Youtube page (http://www.youtube.com/marryanother in case you didn’t already know :p) and I will post another blog with it linked as well.
I hope you enjoy it. Expect it up either in the next 20 minutes or early in the morning (depends on how long it takes to render. Band practice tonight)
OK, so Carl was true to his word and managed to get the song sorted. Basically it’s an idea that’s been kicking around for a while that we never did anything with, as he says it’s unlikely to be released anywhere else; it’s just this idea of putting tid-bits out there in the hope that they will keep you all entertained!
It’s a pretty sad song, the lyrics date back to quite a chaotic time for someone I know. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, but perhaps some people will relate. In complete anachronism to this is the songs title, “Damn You, Strawberry Lace”. This occurred after at a venue we were playing, Carl, after three days of not sleeping due to nights out/work was is in something of a sorry state; fighting a losing battle with a cardboard cup of pick ‘n’ mix, when he uttered this very phrase. These are the kind of things I just have to write down to use as song titles when the obvious choice would be too derivative and generic. And to inject a certain amount of cheer into an other wise dour subject.
Anyway, we hope you enjoy!
‘Damn You, Strawberry Lace!’
By the way, as Carl mentioned, there’s a video on its way!
