Wolves in Wool!!!!!111eleven
Ok, now that that's out of my system...
We may have finally settled on a bandname that nobody hates. Nobody really loves it, but we're all "ok" with it. That might be the way it has to be for now. Can't please everyone.
So, for the moment, my band is known as 'Wolves in Wool.'
I guess that's kinda cool. Makes me think of one of my favorite music videos (And an intensely creepy one at that) by Queens of the Stone Age called 'Someone's in the Wolf.'
In any case, the reason I'm posting to this blog is because we recorded a live set last weekend.
We recorded 10 songs but, hilariously, only 4 survived. 5 were lost due to corrupted hardware and 1 due to apparent tentacle rape. I usually make it a point to keep my mouth closed when tentacles are about, but I guess everyone has to learn some way.
C'est la vie...
But I digress, I thought I'd share with you the songs that survived which I've posted to youtube. The videos are unlisted so you actually need the link from this page to view each one.
None of the performances are perfect. Some bad mixing on the levels, some flat/sharp notes here and there, but it's pretty raw. Personally, I'm going to go ahead and blame my own mistakes on the absolutely massive amount of reverb on my monitors. The mic I recorded into was not the one I was singing into- The one I was singing into had way too much reverb on it and, had I known beforehand that we were recording, I would have asked for it to be shut off completely.
But alas, like the retarded frontman I am, I didn't realize we were actually recording until about halfway through where I comically ask "Are we recording?" to much laughter from the other wolves.
I'm getting offtrack again- in a weird mood today I guess.
The surviving songs!
Come Feel It
I Never Loved You
Note: The synth/keys was something we were trying out, but we actually decided that we work better as a four-piece band and had to let the keyboard player go.

P.S. - Yes, that is our set list in the picture. YES, there is a song called Vibrator. No, I don't know why, just seemed a cool nickname at the time. The songs we recorded that day are the ones on the left side. The ones on the right are unfinished jams.
