I'm struggling to find something redeeming in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjeMDvCdrtc guys. I can only think they haven't got the monitors turned on laugh.gif .

At times maybe a bit of the old fkalich smile.gif wouldn't go a miss - don't give up the day jobs boys!

Cheers,
Tony

i was exercised, I saw this sort of black amorphous wisp rise out of me yesterday. Problem was, it settled back down into one of my cats after that, I may have a real problem now.

Ok, always try to look for something good. Well, they were not too loud. The singer sort of reminded me of a caged cat I saw at a zoo one time, pacing back and forth. But that was ok. Well the big thing was that they were not too loud, that was good. Playing like that loud would have been really bad.

Was that the same cat that plays guitar really well ? Maybe he'll start playing death metal or something ...

Was that a stylophone the keyboard player was playing ? That was unremittingly awful, no saving grace whatsoever ... but yes, it could have been louder which would have been bad.

This is, just like Europe, a Swedish band but I can't recall their name.

I think the drummer is doing his part, havn't checked his tempo but it's pretty much the same at the end as from start. or? smile.gif
With a new guitarist, bass player and vocalist they could be on to something wink.gif

I will give them some cred thoug.
I'd never go onstage if I played that... *hrm* less good. So at least give the guys credit for their guts! They've got that.

And I think all of us play because it's fun. My guess is that they had a fun time up there on stage. Lots of players never get that far even and it's an incredible feeling to be there I can tell you, facing 70,000 people and just rock!



Btw, in Sweden ',' is a decimal separator. Don't confuse it with a thousand separator, we use '.' for that laugh.gif

This makes me angry. Cant the vocalist and the rest of the band hear that he is as out of key as it is possible to get? The guitars and keyboards werent actually that impressive either tongue.gif

Arrrrhhhh...

I think so does the singer, he could learn a thing or too about singing here also! smile.gif

oh my god....
it seems fake...i hope it is

Posted by: Pavel Sep 20 2007, 12:34 AM

Hahahahah what a band!!!!!!!!!! Look at those 2 broom-stick professionals on the right ! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

The singer has some serious problems with hearing.

As Fkalich said: thank God it was not loud.

Ok, here is a constructive criticism: these guys can easily sell their instruments because they have no future in music. If they can't hear how bad they are there is no chance they can improve even a bit.

FKalich: can we hear your cat singing? wink.gif biggrin.gif

I apologize if i insulted someone, it's just i turned the"sunshine-blowing" mode OFF! smile.gif

I am more concerned should he ever figure out who it was who had the vet removed his jewels when he was a little kitty, considering that I sleep on my back, and my neck is fully exposed.

actually, now that you mention it, I do this routine where I sing the happy birthday song in a very high tone, to words "meow meow meow meow.....". Very easy to remember the words. Thing is, especially if I do this in the bathroom considering the acoustics, all the cats come in and go nuts, all meowing with me. Eventually they all start hissing at each other, but that sounds cool too. If I ever do that again, I will record it an upload it. I know that my brother enjoyed hearing me do that.

yeah Robin, but when you are so out of tune, I mean where you are not even close, is it not as bad as if you are out of tune, but really trying to be in tune. I mean, reminds me of when I was a kid, highest complement my sister every paid me, she said "you know, you are not that bad looking, in an ugly sort of way". Sort of like that. See what I mean. If you are trying to be good, and missing, well that is painful. But if you are just bloody awful, well there is something redeeming in that, as you are not even trying, so you are really not missing the mark.

only 8. Anyone with over 6 cats is nuts. Sooner of later two will pass on to kitty heaven (or possibly hell), and then I regain my sanity. If I had 10, that would take longer.

Well, at least they didn't fall off stage. Now that would've been bad...or hilarious, one or the other.

Nasal singing ftw guys!

I do believe its an underappreciated art taking true technique to master.

WOAAAH!

WHAT A SOLO!






Does the guitarist even know what a scale is?

Posted by: botoxfox Sep 20 2007, 05:40 AM

I really find bad singers fascinating. It might sound weird, but I actually enjoy listening to bad singers. biggrin.gif
