Back for 2023. Rock on with your bad selves!

In 2020 I put out a solo album made up entirely of FAWM songs from many years of writing, check it out here:. https://www.dasbinky.com/when-we-drown/

And I also remixed and remastered an old 2012 EP: https://www.dasbinky.com/hurtful-nothings/

History:
I've been doing this since 2009*, and hit my 14 for 6 years running. I took 2015 off (minus one song), started 2016 with good intentions but was short circuited, spent 2017 on a solo project (except for one song), and took 2018 off (just one song). 2019 thru 2022 were back in the saddle with collab-heavy FAWMs. So 2023 is my 15th-ish outing. Or 12th in 15 years if you're being technical. Anyway, it's a lot.

And I'm in a band with @johncrossman and @nancyrost. We are more amazing than you can fathom. I was in a band with @tfish77 from like 1992-1995. We redefined rock as you know it, but then it went back. I produced an album with @leslie that set the parameters for piano pop for a new generation. I'm starting up a project of indeterminate nature with @bootsylavox, which will presumably redefine something. And I jam with @snort sometimes, since he lives down the street. We're not redefining anything.

That is the best anecdote of FAWM 2023.

You're welcome! Your pain is relatable, I consume music only at home and in the tram for the same reason (+ bad mobile connection). Congrats for winning FAWM - and have a great listening time !
[avatar]
Wow. There was me thinking I'd listened to most of yours, but no! You've done a load more since I last looked.
Congratulations on a fawm well done!
I shall be back in the coming hours and days to find out what I missed...
[avatar]
@dasbinky I would love for you to look into this and would like to come if I am available.
[avatar]
Congrats on the FAWM win. Glad I had a small part in helping you push you over the top.

@mood
Wow! Thanks binky! I'm glad you like Supernova! I'm especially proud of that one.

Email sent. Only under any possible circumstance. Heck yeah.
[avatar]
Howdy, Das Binky! Psyched to presumably redefine something in an indeterminate fashion with you!

@b3nut
Thanks for your comments, and I'm always up for shenanigans! ๐Ÿ˜€
[avatar]
Thanks so much for your comments on my song - I absolutely value your opinion and Iโ€™m so happy you liked it ๐Ÿ˜Š
[avatar]
I can add the B3 without stems. Just let me know the bpm you used and then I will send it to an email contact I assume is on your website then you can do what you like with it!

Hi John. ๐Ÿ‘‹ ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Looking forward to catching up with your tunes.

Yo - let me know if anyone chimes in about the horn charts. I'd be interested, too!
[avatar]
Ha ha. I spent ages (well, 15mins, but that's ages in FAWM time) wondering how to start that first song and then just thought ah hell, there's a nice big breath for the very first syllabul. That'll do.
Also catches folk out if they've had their volume up to listen to someone recording guitar and vocals on their phone... I am a bad person ๐Ÿ˜‰

And phyrigian? Could be. I think of that sound as harmonic minor, but it might not be that either. I was just dicking about trying to find notes that sounded nice... ๐Ÿ™ƒ

@negasi
Hey you know I love me some Binky tunes! And thanks! Will have to see what words I can conjure this year, my first FAWM while I've had a job in many many years so we will see! :D
[avatar]
Go. Go in search of that perfect bass tone. May you find it ever within your existing presets.

@cts
*CTS takes a bow* you're welcome, sir. We shall always keep things classy.

Dang, I need to pass out more guitar picks LOL!!!

Guten Morgan, Herr Binky.

Three cheers for men with beards, guitars, drum kits and caves in which to use em!
Welcome back, my good sir,
[avatar]
I stumbled on our video of Minions of Mayhem today and realized how much fun that was... And how confused I looked for the first half of the video. :). We should do something like that again sometime. :)

Until then, I am anxiously awaiting much tunage from you! (As opposed to tonnage, which I am told is different).

Have a great FAWM!

1M horses practicing dressage in a single acoustic tent will eventually recreate all my works. This fawm will be the first 35 recorded minutes of that.

But you, you so-and-so, with that thing you do, and the objects with which you do those things, well.

It's a date!

Welcome back to FAWM!! Let's do this crazy thing.
