One thing I seriously noticed in bands around here (mid 80s - late 90s, and dont know about now, but I bet it hasnt changed that much all), but they all wanted to play "X", they all wanted sound like "X".. whatever the flavor on the moment was... BORING! Go to any pub to pub no matter what the band was.. "wait... didnt I just hear this exact same song down the street played the exact same way".? Me and the guy I was jamming with at the time went to see these bands and the only fun we had was heckle them (we knew all the guys) but even still... might as well have some fun.

but my point is.. what everybody else is doing dont do that, (a gimmick) if you like.. that draws the crowds... getting them involved and making then part of the band (without the pay of course). I know its the kind of band "I" would want to be in.. but everybody around here they all want to play "standard corporatize music".. You might as well just phone it in right.? And if thats the case.. then whats the point.?

Reminded me, sort of, like a couple of laidback 'Madness' tracks.

Good stuff, an accordion thrown in the mix and it would sound a little 'cajun' I suspect.

:cheers:


It would sound very ''Gogol Bordello'' I think....I like Gogol Bordello..

THEN youve nailed it.. :D But then that might be too Zydecoish, never hurts to Jam with one, to just what it might sound like.. Id think it would certainly fit into it quite nicely at that, or a keyboardist.. either way.. I think people will agree with this idea..


Excellent effort :flop: :flop:


a concertina would be awesome in the band!! in the other band im in we have an accordion player.

cheers dude :cheers:

that particular song is a cover of an old song. the horn boys in the band work the parts out between them. in birmingham at the moment there are a number of bands with really great brass sections
