For Mighty Microbes Fans...

Have now finished the drums, bass and rhythm guitar. Thought you'd like to know.

Bravo! When/how do we get to hear the results, O Mighty Microbe?

I'm all of a-quiver! Of anticipation!

Still a long way to go. I'm now putting a rough vocal track on. Then I've asked James, the Killer Rabbits' guitarist, to add the lead guitar. Then there's keyboards, vocals proper (might try and find someone who can sing to do that!), backing vocals and keyboards.
Then the crowd noises have to go on. Followed by mixing - and the figuring out of how to put it on to a CD. Plus the cover of course.
I'm aiming to have it done by Christmas.

I don't like the sound of them "crowd noises"!
Reminds me of thsoe awful "live" recordings where they add the crowds applause and cheering afterwards. Also those very un-funny american sit-coms with laugh tracks. yuk!

Well, you have to remember the album will be called
The Mighty Microbes LIVE at Bredhurst Village Hall.
So it supposed to sound like a live band.

michael said...

you will need to have those announcements on there too..
"could the owner of the white Nissan Micra parked infront of the fire door please remove it ..." and
"The raffle be will drawn at the end of the evening"
To be a real village hall recording...or is it a more upmarket one?whoooop whoooop

Roger Stevens said...

No - you're dead right. Girls will scream. There will be mistakes. Inexplicable silences. Banter with Auntie Rosemary and microphones knocked over. Oh, and feedback. And vomit.
Oh to be young again.

Have me bleating like a goat here...too funny!!! And yes, the sitcoms here are horrendous and fakey. Brit coms...now there you go!

Feedback & Vomit? Werent they a double act back in the 70's?

I think they were a pub duo. Used to play in the clubs around Stoke.
