One of the things I’ve wanted to do for the longest time – aside from my desire to play online bingo (sign up now) – release a record. It’s any musician’s biggest dream, and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t even think that it would be neat to release something containing their own compositions. Releasing one and having people actually like it is like winning in bingo.
Anyway, I’ve put that dream on the back burner because, well, I didn’t think I was talented enough to write a good song, let alone a few songs that will fill up an entire EP or LP. Also, work. And age. I can really name a lot of reasons why I wasn’t able to record stuff with all my other bands, but nothing beats stopping making excuses and just heading off to the studio to put your songs on tape.
(Well, technically, we didn’t really record on tape, because it’s 2012, and who the hell records on tape these days? Oh, yeah. Foo Fighters. That doesn’t make it any different – we still recorded digitally. Yes, I know the idiom doesn’t make sense, but- oh, you get what I mean. Shut up.)
So lets jump to 2012. New band, new songs, new rules. We managed to write songs that’ll fit an EP in a span of three weeks. We did a quick and dirty recording, laying down the drum tracks at a studio, and the rest recorded at Marco and Maria‘s homes.
So here it is. My new band, RomCom, just released our first EP, called “It’s Tight Like Prom Night!” Don’t want to shell out money for our EP? Don’t worry. We’re giving it away for free! All we ask is that you enjoy this recording of ours, because we worked hard to make this!
