I read a really interesting article the other day about sincerity in music; meaning it, playing like your life depended on it. If you put your soul into every note - good, bad, or indifferent - the audience will get it. I do, anyway. To my mind alchemy happens when musicians take their feet off the bottom and go out that little bit further each time.
Listening to the second Bees long player recently (for the first time in a very long time) reminded me just how exciting they were. Wrap yer ears around this album opener and see what I mean. And at 1:44 there's a yelp/scream that tells the listener just how magical it must have been to be in that band in 2004. I don't think you can fake sincerity like that. And, me being me, I'm curious as to how you'd spell this vocal ejaculation: for what it's worth I'm going with "Hooo!" I could be wrong; wouldn't be the first time.
The Bees - These are the Ghosts (2004)
Oh yes - this is wonderful, I totally agree. Is it a hooo or is it a wooo, or maybe more of a whooo, I don't know and I don't care, whatever it is, it's spot on!ReplyDelete
Glad you like. Yep, spellcheck was no help at all on this one. I do like your suggestions tho'.Delete

Stick with it (your blog platform) and it seems C knows what she's doing so will be available I'm sure for hints and tips.
