Thumbs up Future Shock - my rockband (we're from Denmark)

FUTURE SHOCK





MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL
There is a lot of cool music here, mostly local bands, or band that played in my town

Great news all,

We recently started rehearsing again, with a new bas player

We are gonna make a recording, a demo in the next weeks

And hopefully we get to play some live-gigs, it's been 3 years since last gig

Thanks guys (and girls) for your support

Wink a few news



I am really proud to announce, we are now in the middle of recording a new demo,
just 3-4 songs. It will be used to send out to the different places around, that would
have us play.

It's a kind of live recordening, bass and drums and the rythm guitar, all down at
once, on 8 tracks. After we finished that, i have to but one more rythm guitar
on top, and the vocals and leads of course

The fact is, we should have done it five years ago, when i first started the
band. But because of difficalties finding a bass player, we never got to do it....


So it' about damn time, and so far it's going really well.

We had some cable problems, and one of the microphones
didn't work, the mixer we use, is very old and worn out.
But anyway we tried to record a bit, and the sound is good.

So Sunday we will continue, and hopefully play the songs
without too many errors.

I recorded some video too, just to show everyone what's going on,
and how we make the demo. It's not that exciting, but it shows
what kind of gear we use and so on. I will have to edit
that a lot before it is put up...

When the demo is finished, we will make a video for one of the
tracks at least, and as said, i really hope to play some livegigs soon ...

Thx for reading, will post an update soon

Thumbs up it's going as planned so far ...

Yesterday was so fun

We had to do 15 takes of one of the songs. That's because we choose to record the basic tracks live, drums, bass and the rythm guitar,
it's very difficult to do without any errors.

But we managed to record 4 songs, and that is a lot. One of the songs we have to do over though, 'cos one of the tracks
(the bass-track) was not right, there was some loose connection somewhere. We found out too late. Thats a shame when
we played it almost perfect

So today, DAY 3 of the demo recording, we will get that last song recorded. And maybe do a few more.
Then it's time to put leads and vocals on top, and that's my job, yeah. It will be fun today too ...

When it's all done, comes the hard part. Mixing.

More about that later, i must admit, i write all this down mostly for my own sake.
The plan is to make a little vid, showing the whole process, from the start to end.

Thanks for reading anyway


Edit: Oh and by the way we are working on the cover for the demo, it will look really good,
when you keep in mind, that its a hundred percent homemade.... I WILL SOON POST SOME ARTWORK,
and hope to get a little feedback ...

Unhappy Day 3

Yesterday we learned one big lesson


Never make a recording with gear, that you don't know....


We have to start all over now, because most of the tracks were filled with
noise from all the bad connections

So typical, really. I was so sad to find out. But our new bass player has
offered, that we can try a new recording at his place. He is such a cool mate
At his place we know the gear, and know that there will be no
loose connections making a lot of noise -

Our biggest fault, was to record all the songs, before we even checked
the noise on the tracks. I don't know why we didn't. I mean, we did, but
just not good enough

Update soon

I had to share this hehe.

We just arranged to meet and drive all the gear to my friends place

We are gonna meet tomorrow at 11.

Yes ... I realized it afterwards - we start our demo recording 11-11-11- at 11

Now it doesn't mean a thing to me, but it's a nice coincidence

Exclamation Try 2

Yeah this is becoming more like a diary, but the thread have got a few views, so here's an update ...

We met friday at 11.11.11.11.11 -

Packed the stuff in the car, on our way. My friend has got the most beutiful place, just outside of town. We drove there with all the gear, and started to set up the mic's for the drums.

I had to go all the way back to get 3 mic's we forgot. The drums sounded great all mic'ed up. Then we made some guitar sound, great. The bas was not that good. A broken speaker was rumbling inside the cabinet. We took it out. And the bass sounded ok, actually, only on two speakers.

That was it, 5 hours or so it took. We played a few songs, and listened. Sound was great, no problems, no loose connections this time

So we split, and met at 11 Saturday. Actually I got there at 11, the others both overslept and came around 12. We had some coffee. And then we recorded the basic tracks for 6 songs, with bass, drums, and the rythm guitar. Sounded great. That's all we needed to do.

Now the tracks needed the leads (the solo-guitars) and vocals. And we had planned to do that later, back in the rehearsal. But we had planty of time, so I decided to put leads and vocals on top- It went smooth- no problems at all. And that was the end of a very long day. A great place, with great friends.

Now today we have to pack the gear, and get it back to our rehearsal- And get all 8 tracks down to the computer, so we can put some extra leads, and vocals on, later.
And the mixing of the tracks will take some time. But we will have the demo finished soon.
We make the covers and burn the CD's ourselves. We have this printer that can print a cover on the CD, and it is going to look homemade, but awesome, I'm sure we can get a few gigs with a demo like this ....

Thx for reading and listening,

Loving it! Good luck with the future progress of your band. It was fun to read this diary/thread

edit: I'm planning on uploading music myself once I get things going for me (I'm a singer/guitarist/bassist (not an expert in any of them ) without any bandmates at the moment)... Is Soundclick.com any good?

Thank You Energi

Im glad You liked it - and good luck with your own music.

I don't use soundclick, but it should be one of the best services. I only use youtube and vimeo these days. I once tried reverbnation, but the songs there must be a certain size, not good enough for me

soundclick is good for compiling your music.

I just added a new song posted here called "only human". Hosted on SC.

claus, reminds me of old black sabbath.

except for the vocals. the guitar tone and chording structure is on par with what early sabbath would have done.

Cool Got a show tonight ...

So tonight is the night. We are playing our first gig in 4 years.

I must admit I'm a bit nervous now. Hope it will pass

Usually I'm not that nervous, and we know the place well
and have played there many times with different bands, but with
Future Shock it's something special, I guess.

Wish me luck
