Over the course of three days earlier this month, my band recorded our demo EP, This Is Me, That's Your Daughter, which consists of five songs. The dude who recorded us played guitar for The Divinyls, who were some big Australian band in the 80s, and he said he was really impressed with what we had to offer. I've uploaded the tracks for you guys so you can have a listen, and tell me what you think. Please keep in mind that we only had three days, so there is the odd mistake or vocal discrepancy or something, but we're aware of it so we don't really care.

Uh, you'll hopefully like the songs if you're into the same music people like fonzy, mitch H, Trips and myself are into.

Anyway, here are the tracks:

1. The Arc Of A Moon (http://home.austarnet.com.au/tkf01/dtp/decantingthepride-thearcofamoon.mp3)

Ryan: Verses/Guitar
Luke: Guitar/Choruses
Mitch: Backup Vocals/Screams/Bass
Peder: Drums

2. 1,000 Miles (http://home.austarnet.com.au/tkf01/dtp/decantingthepride-1000miles.mp3)

(originally by Vanessa Carlton)

Ryan: Guitar
Luke: Lead Vocals/Guitar
Mitch: Vocals/Screams/Bass
Peder: Drums

3. Exterior Contract (http://home.austarnet.com.au/tkf01/dtp/decantingthepride-exteriorcontract.mp3)

Ryan: Lead Vocals/Guitar
Luke: Guitar
Mitch: Screams/Bass
Peder: Drums

4. A Friend Is... (Poptastic) (http://home.austarnet.com.au/tkf01/dtp/decantingthepride-poptastic.mp3)

Ryan: Guitar/Vocals
Luke: Guitar
Mitch: Lead Vocals/Bass

Yeah, so that's pretty much it. Hope you enjoy it. It's not perfect, but no CD that was recorded in three days is. :-\

Well, the vox are iffy, but that's what you get on a 3 day pass. It'd be interesting to see what you could do with more time and a better setup.

Ummmm...One question though...Do you guys have trouble with tempo?

mitchables

Hahaha, yeah, actually. We speed up a fair bit. :blush: We're aware of it. I don't know why we do it, but yeah. It's something to work on.

I have trouble doing that on piano.

I don't know why on piano only. I found out for sure when I played to a metronome. I got like 6 1/3 measures ahead of myself...

I also have the problem of trusting my guitarist on the tempo. Sometimes a big mistake. God we need a drummer.

Anyways, enough about my failings. IT's not exactly my cup of tea, but you guys done good for a quickie demo.

K just finished listening. So good considering they were demos. You remind me of Straylight Run or Taking Back Sunday.

Thanks man, I appreciate the honest feedback. The guy who recorded us has told us we're welcome to free hours to fix up whatever we want because he really has taken a shining to us. He wants to take us around all the schools in Townsville and sort of push us as "Townsville's band", because out of all the band's he's recorded he said we have the most new/different sound or whatever, being that the main music scene here consists of generic rock and death metal. :-\

Yeah and label it by some big band's name so a bunch of people download it thinking it's the band, and then they find out it's not and get pissed, but you still get listened to by people. :shifty:

mitchables
12-15-2003, 02:14 AM
OH YEAH, in Poptastic, when we all say, "Jump!", Peder says "Lunch!" :cool:

And in Exterior Contract, instead of screaming "I'll kill this all before I sleep", I want to make it "I've got a flight at 12:03". :shifty:

We want to mess with people's heads so there are different versions of the lyrics on the internet and people fight over it. :shifty:

If you had a cd in the shops, and I had just illegally downloaded those songs off the net, I would go out and buy it as soon as I could.

Good stuff :y:

I really like Paper City Sound Scape :cool:

Downloaded the first 2 songs, and will get the rest tomorrow.

Arc of the Moon - music is class, not too keen on the vocals, but still pretty damn good. Put it like this, I have three songs on my playlist at the moment and this is one of them. :mad:

Thousand Miles - Don't like this one as much, but not bad. Pretty good transition.


I'd like to see what you could do with more time though. :y:

You play piano? Kewl, how long you been playing for?

I play, using the ones at school, and I'm saving up to buy myself a huge big 'un :D

From what I remember, Mitch was only sort of a stand in bassist for that lot. :(

Yeah, I was in a ska band when Wishful Thinking were around, but I was good mates with them all. Their bassist got really sick with Ross River Fever for about 2 months, so I bassed for them during that time, during which they recorded the CD.

Hook me up with the lyrics.

Hearts fall and we dance in time
In love with our tears
I've watched lips bleed and lie
Still I listen and paint my thoughts red

For all this we'll stay awake
Know that for this, we're alone
The ground's too close to come falling
We're falling down

If the phone doesn't ring again
It'll be the best thing that's happened

Sway like a tree, let the wind throw you
[Hearts move, we cry]
Like the arc of a moon, we'll feel
[We cry, tears fall]
Broken hearts, house of cards and we'll rise
[We fall, hearts cry]
We'll rise on a tide of tears

Tell all your friends we're not buying
It looks so... don't look confused
For the cost of a broken heart
It's not worth the simple words of rejection

For all this we'll stay awake
Know that for this, we're alone
The ground's too close to come falling
We're falling down

If I never smile again, it's alright
Because there's nothing left to lose

Sway like a tree, let the wind throw you
[Hearts move, we cry]
Like the arc of a moon, we'll feel
[We cry, tears fall]
Broken hearts, house of cards and we'll rise
[We fall, hearts cry]
We'll rise on a tide of tears

[spoken] Unlike the Autumn leaves to the Autumn floor
I hope we're all remembered as something more
Unlike the Autumn leaves to the Autumn floor
I hope we're all remembered as something more
Unlike the Autumn leaves to the Autumn floor
I hope we're all remembered as something more

Sway like a tree, let the wind throw you
[Hearts move, we cry]
Like the arc of a moon, we'll feel
[We cry, tears fall]
Broken hearts, house of cards and we'll rise
[We fall, hearts cry]
We'll rise on a tide of tears

Sway like a tree, let the wind throw you
[Hearts move, we cry]
Like the arc of a moon, we'll feel
[We cry, tears fall]
Broken hearts, house of cards and we'll rise
[We fall, hearts cry]
We'll rise on a tide of tears

Hey, those are awesome Mitch. I really like Track 1 and the cover of Vanessa Carlton's song. I haven't had a chance to hear the rest, but so far I'm impressed.

Not your fault, Mitch. Apparently my comp doesn't have enough memory to d/l much anymore. Damn my sister & her Ani DiFranco obsession. :rant:
