The Aftermath

A few days before Christmas I recorded a few shows so they’ll slowly get posted when I get time. This episode I play a few songs that my old bands’ covered and a couple old favourites. Hope you all had a good Christmas/Hanukah/ and have a kick ass New Years party.

Baby Showers, Cakes and Death Metal

What a day. This was supposed to be a relatively quick show but tings happened which extended it to about 2.5 hours. Because this is the metal show I’m going to leave it as the one show in case there are some of you who want to skip it. But why not give it a go? You might hear a new band that you get into so much that you buy some skin tight black jeans, grow a mullet and hang outside the local McDonalds looking hardcore.

The Calm Before The Storm

I've tried to keep the music in this episode a bit more low key and also used a couple things people have suggested to get the overall sound better (thanks DaHonay for the Levellator idea). I compressed the whole show once I'd pieced it together too to try and get things at a constant level. One segment that I recorded didn't save on my iRiver for some reason (the drive home from the gym) so if you're confused at some point that will be one reason why. Big thanks to everyone who's taken the time to let me know that they're enjoying these - it's good to know that I'm not the only one getting a kick out of it.

McNally from Ham Radio fame encouraged me to make a show so I did. This show I've made follows the same sorta format as McNally's show so I take no credit for any originality. Being from Perth, Western Australia I thought it would be a good start to do a show with only music from my town. I implore you to hit the website for these bands and support them like I have; buy a CD, see a show and spread the word (click artist name for a link to their page).
