1  General Category / Off Topic Discussions / So, any Frank Turner fans kicking about? on: June 07, 2015, 09:22:20 pm
If you don't know who the hell I'm on about, in his own words he's a "skinny, half arsed english country singer". He's a helluva live act and since I was introduced to him by a friend the other year I've become a little bit of a die hard. Couldn't be more different to DT but, I wouldn't say that we're a narrow minded set of people... Can you tell I want to make you a fan? Anyway, have a listen to The Ballad Of Me and My Friends!

Sorry for not replying for errr 3 odd months :p Yea it'd be awesome. In terms of musicians... You'd probably have to simplify it and well.. Dance would have to go and a lot of the songs would be cut down... It's one of those things that I'd love to do but I don't have the skills required to put it together.

Yea, I was listening to SFAM the other day and it got me thinking... Why in the hell hasn't it been translated into a musical?!

You've got everything you need, great music to work from, a decent sized cast and a damn good story. Why has no-one even attempted it, so I put to you ladies and gentlemen of the jury; am I just being a crazy person, or do you guys think this could work?

Thought i'd finally get around to delving into Asmiov's Foundation series. Due to university i'm only half way through book 1 (I know they're short..) but, much like his later work it's really rather fabulous.

Saw DT @ High Voltage Festival in London last night, Despite them doing a similar set list for the whole tour It was still a delight to hear the songs and of course That F# in LTL. Unfortuanatly I was stuck near the back of the crowd, here's a few of the pics.




















and a link to the rest of the set i've uploaded. http://www.flickr.com/photos/44091396@N04/sets/72157627155367907/

Well, here are some covers of Era IV, and the first video's my voice is recorded with my new Sennheiser G3 series mic.  Smiley

It still sounds somewhat strained on most high notes, and try to stop growling on so many notes, sing it clean with some vibrato.

Hey All,

You've been keeping the place alive and kicking. Thanks. Yes, hot dogs don't go down very well while trying to rock. Put them down and raise your fists...!!!!!!
And Clayman, In Flames are a great band. Some sick music going on there. You must have been into Dark Tranquility as well.


Take care you hosers...  Grin

James.

Although it was a fun thing to watch, you sure you've not lost all threads of sanity? :p

As a singer myself i'd suggest to be careful around the top notes they sound strained and frankly metropolis is a bitch mostly due to the 'crazy' verse with the top D's in, and personally i think you're better off finding a teacher you can actually talk to face to face as opposed to over the internet.

Good luck in finding/deciding on a teacher and keep on the road to improvement.
