Well, it’s now official. Well, ok. I’m not a “published” artist. Technically speaking though, I am. My cover album of “Billy Talent I” has been published… by myself. So, technically, I am a published artist, but I’m hardly going to go around claiming to be. That’d be ridiculous.
It’s Friday (Friday, gotta get down on Friday) so for the rest of the day I’m doing sweet fuck all. On Sunday, I’m going to start to put together a 10 Track album of bass covers from other bands that I love, then I’ll replace my strings and get cracking with “Billy Talent II.” I already have 2 of the tracks recorded, and pretty much know the other 8 songs that I want to record, now it’s just a matter of getting them perfect. By perfect, I mean O.K. enough to the point that I’m somewhat happy with it.
Thanks to all who download the album. If you listen to it or not, I don’t give a shit really. Downloading is support, and for that I thank you. Here’s the link again, because I’m an ass: http://www.mediafire.com/?mdjd817323f27j2
I promised my followers on Twitter a blog about Skyrim. Unfortunately, that’s going to have to wait. In a way, that’s a good thing, seeing as I haven’t yet watched the Thirteen Minute Gameplay Video
I just got a call from Calvin, he’s pretty much my best friend. I’m going up to his house today with my recording gear so he can record some songs he wrote. We had this planned for summer as it is, I just didn’t know it would be today. He’s going to record all his parts, then it’s back to my place. At my house, I’ll be writing bass parts and tabbing out the songs.
We’re pretty fucked up together, and he is staying the night, so that means we will be extra fucked up.
In other news that’s musically related, I’m releasing my cover of “Billy Talent I” tomorrow. I’ll post the link on all my sites, here in a blog too. As well as that, this weekend I’m recording a 10 part CD of Bass Covers by other bands, before I get a start on “Billy Talent II.” I’ll release that when it’s complete.
As some of you may have already known, this summer my goal is to record every single Billy Talent song ever recorded. they’re my favourite band, and this is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now.
Today I recorded “Nothing to Lose” and “Voices of Violence” thus completing the 12 songs off their first, self-titled album, “Billy Talent.” I upload one song per day on MySpace. Today I’ll be uploading “Cut The Curtains” meaning there will only be 3 songs left after to upload. Thursday the 9th of June will be my final song upload from “Billy Talent” and on Friday the 10th, I’ll be making the entire album (Bass Tracks ONLY) available for free download. I’ll post the ling for that through my Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook.
Before I start recording “Billy Talent II” however, I have a few surprises. Musical ones of course. I’m going to take a little break to record some bass covers of other songs that I love. I’ll reveal one of them: Coffee & TV by Blur. I can’t wait to record that, and I can’t wait for you all to hear of these other surprises. Also, before recording “Billy talent II” I’ll be replacing my bass strings, just for a nice thick sound for the album. I’m honestly dreading recording “Devil in A Midnight Mass.” That song will be the death of me.
