    I haven’t been around much lately — completed EP

    I haven’t been on this message board for a couple of months. Life’s been pretty hectic! But pretty excited because yesterday my band launched the project I’ve been working on... our debut EP. If you’re interested and or have time, I’d love to know what people think! And I promise I’ll be around...

    Some band promos we’ve been working on!

    Hey, so I’ve been a bit MIA in these parts lately— been really busy with uni and managing my band (live music is making a slow come back 🎉), but here’s some promo stuff I’ve been putting together for Instagram reels (it’s Instagram’s new feature that’s basically tik tok or if you’re old the vine...

    First Gig with new Line Up

    Had our first gig last night. Due to Covid it was a seated gig (no standing/gathering with people not on Your table and especially no dancing) and has limited numbers. The venue capacity was 50 with staff, and we hit that which was nice. There were three bands and a solo artist. The solo artist...

    New Original from latest rehearsal

    Had band practice last night trying to get in shape for a gig we have next week. This is a new original I wrote that we’re working on. It’s still a little rough and ready and the audio is just straight from the camera (also the camera positioning is less than ideal), but it gives you a general...

    Not sure if I Love it or Hate it

    This just popped up on Instagram and as the thread title suggests I’m not sure how I feel about it.

    Movies/TV shows with bad drumming scenes

    If this is already a thread forgive me but I couldn’t find one that covered this exactly. We’ve also seen movies/TV shows where the drums are set up like this and it really takes me out of the show. But more recently I’ve been noticing other subtler stuff. I’ve been watching the Parenthood TV...

    A little acoustic original

    Just before covid we managed the debut gig of our band. afterward we wound up in a park with a few drinks celebrating and recorded (a fairly low quality) version of one of our original songs. I was stuck playing the back of a ukulele but other than a few tipsy errors I don’t reckon we did too...

    B20 or bust

    I’ve always been a Paiste guy so the idea a cymbal has to be b20 allot to me has always seemed silly. But I notice whenever someone asks for cymbal advice a bunch of people will respond and use b20 as a way to justify their suggestions. Do people still believe in b20 or bust? And if so why/why...

    A little cover we threw together back when covid started

    Back when covid started, and before we lost our singer, we threw this quick little 90s cover together. It’s all pretty low-tech and due to having to record in my apartment required us to use my DTX532, but here it is in all its glory haha
