Doing Bass on LA

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Loads of fun working on this song. It’s a bit like going on a rough roller coaster ride with a few quiet suspensful sections. Totally back into the bass guitar again. Took awhile to warm back into it, as it’s been so long.

Rock n Roll!!

LA

Well I’ve only been in LA for a few hours
There’s a girl sporting a huge black eye yelling abuse in the coffee store
Anna-Rose walks in sits at the table next to mine
Leans over and say’s I used to be Mick Jagger’s girl friend

Look at the signs all over the horizen look at the signs within
Hollywood shines when everything is dying and you know it is
The sugary sweet icing on the cake has grown old and thin
The mind controlled sing the music videos and the films decide how we think

The homeless line the boulevard the tourists line the pockets of stars
And the schizophrenics show you their imaginary but real friends
There’s great times to be had sing n’ dance with the crowd in the bars
The standover man still lives taking all of what never was his

Look at the signs all over the horizen look at the signs within
Hollywood shines when everything is dying and you know it is
The sugary sweet icing on the cake has grown old and thin
The mind controlled sing the music videos and the films decide how we think

breakdown

Look at the signs all over the horizen look at the signs within
Hollywood shines when everything is dying and you know it is
You know

Look at the signs all over the horizen look at the signs within
Hollywood shines when everything is dying and you know yeah you know it is

*****Guitar Solo******

Yeah you know
That the sugary sweet icing on the cake has gro oh oooh oooh oh old
And the mind controlled sing the music videos and the films decide how we think
Yeah the films decide how we think ooohh ooooh
You know your com’n down

Recording Bass Guitar – Catapult Song Contest

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Was ‘asked’ to enter my song “PoundBend” In this Catapult Song Contest (although everyone else is saying same thing, so even that sounds like we were tricked into this).

Don’t normaly do these, because it’s the same old tired thing, as battle of the bands system and getting live gigs. (So to clarify, not knocking Catapult, it’s the way the industry has gone these days, overall). Where it’s not about the MUSIC/TALENT. It’s about how many VOTES/LIKES/PEOPLE you can drum up/bring/drag/coerce/manipulate. Meanwhile we’re forced to accept facebook apps even just to vote, only so they can collect as much info off people as they can.

After all that.. if you still wanna vote? Type in Russ Aimz in their search box

~ Okay moving on to more exciting things musically. Have begun recording bass guitar for the 1st tracks off the new album. Starting off with “Pretty Girls”. Speedy gonzalas paced song, sounding wild!!
