    We're adding a few new ones… here's one of them. This is the first run-through of it, from last week's rehearsal. The sound in this room is just terrible and someone forgot to turn on the reverb for the vocals… but, all in all, not terrible for the first run. This is a fun song to play!

    Mike Campbell has nothing to worry about, however :)

    Another one from Tuesday night's rehearsal. This one is ready to get added to the show (assuming that the idiot who forgot the riff in the last verse can get it right) :)

    My band enCircle has the opportunity to perform at Battle of the Bands up in Laconia, NH at Harley Davidson for Bike Week. It would be our largest audience by far. They are running a contest and the bands chosen to play will be the two with the most votes. Right now we're in third and are working this until the end of May. I realize you don't know us, but if you have a second and don't mind throwing in your email address along with a vote for enCircle we'd really appreciate it! You can vote once a day :) Thank you!

    just a heads up: the new Pray for Brain CD is out on Trey Gunn's 7dMedia... World/prog/funk/improv:

    [​IMG]

    Its an eclectic mix of world, jam band, funk, classic rock and fusion: If Led Zep, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash, Isaac Hayes, Tagore and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan met on a Calcutta rooftop overlooking Marrakesh, you'd be close.
    available on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, etc. Here's details:

    Pray For Brain's CD "None Of The Above" : Where to get it

    thanks!

    We just added a second track "Long Run" off of our self titled debut album. The album will be done late this month and will be available through our bandcamp, iTunes, and all that nonsense.

    Hey Guys,

    I posted on The Cellar forum earlier but apparently that was the wrong place for this... anyway...

    I was wondering if you lot would possibly spare a moment to have a listen to my bands debut EP that we released earlier in the year.

    You can listen to it in its entirety for free on this link.. https://play.spotify.com/album/1ggqn8DjzO2zfsJkWoKqWA

    Please let me know what you think, i am very open to criticism! You should be able to have instant access to the music using the Spotify link provided above.

    If it is your style, you enjoy the music and you like the band, please give us a like on facebook and keep up to date!

    www.facebook.com/freewaymadband

    Thanks guys.. :)

    Theoretically, yes. As it says under the link to the Cellar on the main page: Post your music here and/or talk about your favorite bands and musicians. But poor MarshallLP posted a link to his band's new EP there and he got ripped by another MLP member for doing do (there were other reasons, but the ripper did kind of order the poster to post his music here). I see he's posted it here, too. But still . . .

    p.s. I've finally got the nucleus of a new blues group in place, found a terrific rhythm section. I'm thinking of calling the group Kingsbridge Road (after the main thoroughfare which passed by my earliest childhood home).

    We haven't recorded a thing yet, we've just begun rehearsing while trolling for a keyboard player and (maybe) a harmonica player, and we're going to be focusing mostly on original blues material. But I was so jazzed after our first get-together last weekend---we just hooked up to play a few numbers just to feel each other out and see if we'd knit, and knit we did!---that I was inspired to take an old blues jam number of mine and change it to minor key on a lark . . . and discovered I had a lyric that would fit it perfectly that way. So I made a demo of it last Monday:

    I probs came across a bit more aggressive than intended in the reply... but if you mean the other reason about him having to like the page... honestly, i have gone on so many band pages i havent liked yet and have been able to listen to the music. So im a bit confused about this and more pissed off with facebook...

    PS... if none of the links in my pervious post work... id really appreciate if you still gave me a chance and a listen here. Its just samples of each song from itunes, but you shouldn't have to press anything or do anything without at least hearing something. http://www.freewaymad.co.uk/music/

    Again... sorry for any controversy..

    Why not give ReverbNation.com a try? It's easy to listen to boatloads of music there without pressing anything but the play button on a song! As for the Facebook hoo-ha, I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it. You had as much right to post a link to your music in the Cellar as anyone. He was quite out of line all but ordering you to do it here when the Cellar sub-rule is spelled out quite clearly on the main forum page link.

    I'll have to wait until tomorrow to play some of your stuff. My computer's badly unstable (the replacement arrives tomorrow!) and just about dead, so it's hard for me to call up the stuff on that page.
