Rest in Peace Bentley xxx

I've been through some shit this year. Looking for a bit of release this February, some of my songs might be a bit more REAL than my usual nonsense. But hopefully there'll still be plenty of nonsense to go around.

I'm also hosting a FAWM themed show on XRPRADIO.CO.UK on Friday nights from 9pm UK time. Please head to the above site, or bung me a message if you'd like to submit a song xxx

Expect Garage rock, Garage Punk, Psychobilly, Dirty Blues, and weird noise

Spike I must thank you for putting my song in the recommendation thread. I wondered where all the extra comments were coming from!

Hey thanks :) Kleptomaniac was a great prompt!

@nadine
Thanks for your comment! Yes, many blues songs were filthy...

Hello Spike. I'm in but just getting use to how the site works. Hear to you tonight. Mish.

I have never seen the movie Groundhog Day. I went through a period of time (about the ages of 15-25 or so) when even if I had seen it, I wouldn't remember it. Inexplicable but it made watching movies kinda pointless.

This is great, Nothing else to add that hasn't been said already below. But HELL YEAH!

Hey there, email works for me, you can send to jasiegel AT wesleyan.edu once you've got your lyrics together. Excited to see what we'll come up with
[avatar]
No problem! February came fast. Hopefully songs will this year too

Hey Spike, I thought you looked familiar, I've probably seen you play in bands in Medway too. Hope you have a great FAWM!
[avatar]
Yeah sorry for the shit you had to go through. Maybe the only plus for me when I go through it, is good song material. Peace!!
[avatar]
Likewise!

And you

Following fellow UK based FAWMers, welcome, hope you have a great FAWM.

There are not that many of us.

Hey, glad to see you here again.

That's a Frankenstein Cocktail Kit.
I couldn't afford the Vintage Ludwig, Rogers and Slingerland cocktail kits or even the newer Yamaha Steve Jordan model.
All cheap eBay purchases from many years ago: I first bought the late 60 Kent vintage cocktail drum which had snare wires under the top head but did not include the bottom head/hoop.
So I ended up buying some no name Japanese Tom to put under it for the kick drum, the cocktail drum pedal Bracket and the Japanese no name Bongos all in red sparkle.
I use it a lot just for straight drum beats and have another set if I want to do more sophisticated stuff.

Hey man, hope you have a smashing FAWM!

See You In The Shadows…

You look like you are more than ready to rock. I definitely want some weird noise

I sure miss that little guy.
Anyway, have a great FAWM!!

Wotcha Spike, if you're here we know the blues will be coming too.
Watching you with that diddley bow on Instagram made me realise my first guitar was one of them. I'd seen Jimi Hendrix on the Lulu Show, and with my adolescent mind blown had hammered two nails into a table, strung steel wire between them, got a pickup off a kid at school, plugged it into my mums old radio, and I was off. It didn't sound anything like Jimi so I broke it all up the next day!
