Looptron

Singing in the rain...

Singing in the rain...

Sat on the tube listening to an ancient demo wrought with nothing but a cheap Chinese Telecaster and a head cold.

99.4% of Looptron tunes begin with Ableton’s default 808 and go downhill from there, often for as long as possible (months,years) before I end up facing a microphone. (If I do at all.) I hate the singing bit. And recording guitar parts is agonising. I’m quite a hacker live, but end up doing a bazillion obsessive takes if I know I’ve got to live with something.

That said, I’ve got a chunk of demos from the last couple of decades that fell out of a guitar in the first instance but have never been “properly” recorded (although some got gigged with the Slide Pheromone). I’m in the process of gathering them all into a playlist and re-learning them with a view to recording Actually Good™ guitar/vox versions. And then maybe deconstructing/remixing them into Looptron tunes.

Hell, worst case scenario I can start terrorising open mic nights across town.

Currently listening to "Cannonball" - Tune-Yards.
Currently reading "The City We Became (Great Cities #1)" - N.K. Jemisin.
