We have a tumblr?
Well this is a pleasant surprise guys. I totally forgot we owned this tumblr as it’s been so long since it’s last use. However I’m so taking control of this badboy once again and not letting it down again.
To brief any of you readers on what we’ve been up to recently, we have been beyond lucky to get the opportunity to record at two amazing recording studios; the brand new Bare Calf Studios with the very talented Michael Butler, and Scotland’s largest recording studio Riverside Studios with the prestigious Duncan Cameron who has some pretty big bands on his sound engineering CV and has 45 years of recording experience (he’s also been on the other side of that intimidating sound engineer glass - he has appeared on many other albums playing many instruments including banjo, bass, guitar, slide guitar, vocals, Uillean Pipes, pedal steel guitar and mandolin - frankly I find that pretty impressive).
We understand how fortunate we have been to be awarded these things and we’re currently recording an EP between these two studios, which we cannot wait to release to you guys. We have no idea how it’s going to go, because we’re going into these studios with a rough idea of how our songs go (despite playing them for over a year at gigs we’re keeping open minded) and we’re just adding and changing and taking away while we’re in. Like for example, during the recording of Back Inside the Boundaries at Bare Calf, we were changing the guitar parts all over the place and adding all these new drums parts in and messing around with synth parts and vocal parts and it almost sounds like a new song. It really is an amazing experience, and once we’re done of course we’re going to have a wee EP Launch gig on the go and we can bring all our musical mayhem straight to you.
For the time being however, we have a practice tonight which I personally am very excited about as due to prelims and the like it’s been too long since we’ve done something together so it’ll be interesting to say the least to see how it goes. As always, we’re open to song suggestions.
So to our 9 followers and anyone else who wishes to read this, we will be using this tumblr a lot more often now, so feel free to promote us or reblog this post to get us a bit more well known in the glorious land of Tumblr and unicorns.
Over and out,
Hey mighty followerz. No wait. Hey mighty Follower.
To our Mighty Follower and to all future followerz looking back at this past post. We’re Valid On Sundays, a Glaswegian band, consisting of 3 escapee zoo animals and one Jolly Farmer.
This is teh Ben Reffin, local Lead Guitarist and WahWah Noise Maker of the band. I’m in control of our band’s Tumblr, and our G-Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). This is, of course, because I am a G. And I am also male. Apparentally.
We also have Twitter (managed by eewann as he is a twit - www.twitter.com/#!/validonsundays/ ), a Youtube (also managed by eewann as he is a Tube - www.youtube.com/user/validonsundays/ ), a Facebook ( Calum does this one as he… has a face? - http://www.facebook.com/validonsundays/ ), a Soundcloud ( managed by our Jolly Farmer Josh - www.soundcloud.com/valid-on-sundays/ ) and of course a Myspace ( Calum again - www.myspace.com/validonsundays/ ). Feel free to follow us on any of those, or send us an email and I will get back to you faster than you can race a monkey to Japan and back, but only using apple rollerblades as your mode of transport.
I guess Tumblr’s a weird thing for bands to do, but we’re going to use this as our blog on all our gigs and rehearsals and song writing and all that jazz. We’ll also post all Youtube videos here, and all Soundcloud recordings too.
PS - Special shoutout to Pacman and his wife.
