2dimensional rendering of single plane

Posted on Mon., Feb. 2, 2015 - 9:25 AM


 

, More experimental Seemingly random, recorded tracks two seperate early morning sessions. Then edited ala 'tossing the scraps at the wall till they sound "Al DJente" haha NEW GENRE Spoiler Alert.... seriously though, surprising level of congruence.
, Kinda randomly chopped, cut/pasted in editing of tracks which had a very tenuous at best relationship to each other... recorded and mixed over 3 days in 3- 2 hr incre

Cervix W/A Smile (Vertical, Natch)

Posted on Wed., Jan. 7, 2015 - 7:29 PM


 

I don't know why I keep reworking and retracking this 2 min catchy little chug fest, but It is one of my faves. With new Line 6 head I re-recorded my guitars, and bass, and replaced synth track with three different synth tracks, albiet much lower level in mix. I find it way less obtrusive that way. In this version i can hear the bass much better as well. Not sure why I have not been able to pen lyrics when the concept for the song is so fully formed. Oh well, i find forcing out lyrics to get it done leaves me with ear roids. haha The right words, about clinging to denial of reality, despite overwhelming and obvious 'red flags' to the contrary... will slough their way out of my head one day and I'll be glad to have waited.

oops correction: the wah one the delay sound which resembles keyboard is actually an effect on the Line 6, called "Sweep Echo" which i used on one guitar track. I removed the keys altogether from this one.

Shocking Grasp

Posted on Mon., Dec. 29, 2014 - 8:04 AM


 

This song was the last one on the first album I ever played on that had distribution across Canada, and even sold in a few places stateside. Xmas is the bday of the lead guitarist who played in this band, Stewart Langille R.I.P... So I posted this in his memory. Happy Bday Buddy, we miss ya still back here on earth.

Cool tune. Sad story!

Wed., Jan. 7, 2015 - 6:51 PM

Thanks... Wow. I used to use your last name many years ago if I was being hassled by the police on the way home/to jam etc with alcohol before i was of age. They would ask "do you have any I.D?" I'd say, "not on me." Then, "O.K. then, whats your name ??" To which I'd reply "Lloyd"... Then the obvious next ? from them " and your last name ? " which I would of course reply "Mongeaul".. As they wrote it on the little note pad, last name first, first name last.. My stage name would become often recognized as not authentic then. I didn't know That it was a real name, it's cool to see I'm wrong ! :-)

Writing and arranging tracks with a mouse, instead of my fingers or a pick.. Weird and Alien, but still very interesting/fun, especially reversing wav files duplicates.. and butting them end to end to double the length of a riff. Cool, If you don't fall into the trap of relying on it.

More self indulgent riffsturbatory adventures in editing as a form of composing, after the fact of recording the instruments, some cut/pasting brought the second half of the song to life.

The Canadian Way

Posted on Mon., Oct. 6, 2014 - 10:43 AM


 

This is one of very few examples of my lead vocal to be not just recorded, but broadcast live, on a live SHAW program called MUSIC MACHINE. The pace of this tune always made it a challenge to enunciate every word, which is quite apparant upon a listen. Still... I was pretty happy with how it turned out back then, and since I remixed it here, it sounds a lot better. This is a cassette recording, of the audio on a VHS, which was recorded when the set was aired live in 1997, In Calgary. I thickened up the original(what was left of it) signal before posting it here.

Party In The Govt

Posted on Mon., Oct. 6, 2014 - 10:25 AM


 

Ode, Can't Get Out, and Party in the Gov, were all songs which this band, THE INHALERS had in their set before I joined as bassist in 1996. The Canadian Way / Masturbation Seduction were cowritten with me. I think the difference is obvious... but these, as with all their compositions, would have caught on if we hadn't been expert self saboteurs, IMHO. R.I.P. The INHALERS.. One of the best bands I ever worked/played with.

Can't Get Out

Posted on Mon., Oct. 6, 2014 - 10:19 AM


 

This song had a lot of potential to be a single.. pretty catchy and not too long... Problem is that if the album isn't released then the concept of 'single' gets kind of lost in the loss.

Masturbation Seduction

Posted on Mon., Oct. 6, 2014 - 10:15 AM


 

This song feat lyrics i penned, as a poem of sorts. Came back from a weekend out of town and the band had arranged some riffs from all members, and hung my lyrics on them... and it worked. I was stoked. This tune, and the four above it are all from a TV live show broadcast in the late 90's in Calgary, ALBERTA... Where "The INHALERS" were based outta.

The New Electric Way Home (New recording Still pre-Vox)

Posted on Thu., Oct. 2, 2014 - 11:13 PM


H20 is more accurately called an experiment with three deaf players being conducted by a legally blind conductor... Actually, I didn't monitor any of the three tracks while recording the other two. Sometimes, actually.. often it painfully obvious, but sometimes freakishly tight. ??

since the other posts have been previews of demo versions of songs with no vocals on them yet.. I'll post one from Calgary in the late 90's which is a Live track from the SHAW music machine show, and features my bass playing and lead vocals.. It was one of, if not, our best tunes by The INHALERS..
