*************************************************************************
Recording Method:

All tracks are original compositions and were recorded on an ancient Fostex 4 track tape recorder, an acoustic guitar, a Shure Beta58 and a Boss SE-50 processor.

- Bass added on a few tracks after initial recordings. -

Recorded specifically for use as pre-production reference demos for band members prior to entering the recording studio.

Raw production. No pro-tools. No editing. No computer. Old school recording committing everything to tape and hoping for the best.

Posting these demos to get a general consensus on which tracks leave an impression and might warrant full studio production.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Artist info:

In anticipation of hitting the studio to record the third 'Vinyl Sun' album, a couple members of the band boarded a plane for Thailand and spent a couple of months on Ko Samet island developing new material and putting ideas down in an acoustic demo format.

This marked an especially prolific writing & recording period as a large volume of songs were recorded on a portable 4 track tape machine intended as reference tracks for band members.

Recording only in an acoustic format with very limited tools enhanced a creative focus on vocal arrangements and harmonies.

A couple of solos were created running a vocal through the SE-50 FX unit with distortion to create a kazoo like sound. This was done on 'Getting Kinda Nowhere' and 'Addicted'.

Some of the tracks demoed were songs originally written many years ago while still in our teenage years and which we felt were worthy of dusting off and reworking while in Thailand.

We left Thailand with a really good tan, some brilliant memories and a pocket full of tunes.

*************************************************************************

Raw but sugary sweet ... and good for you!

Thank you for checking it out. Great to know these merry melodies are being heard.


* Asterisk denotes early compositions written in teenage years.

Lo-fi

Originally known only as a technique for making recordings, Lo-Fi -- shortspeak for low-fidelity -- is now a vibrant subgenre of Indie Rock. As the media embraced this budding sub-genre and gave it its two minutes, it became a musical/political statement of sorts.

An intentional nose-thumbing to the glitzy, cookie-cutter albums major labels often churn out -- as well as being a minimalist form of art -- these records were notoriously produced on $200 four-tracks using cheap microphones.

Track Name: Daisy *
DAISY

She calls me in the middle of the night
Just to tell me everything's alright
But she's lonely

I tell her not to worry - There's no hurry
"Just take your time"
But she knows me

And I didn't even try to tell her
'cause I knew if I tried - She'd only ask why

All her life had been a world of sad goodbyes
With nothing to show - And no-one to hold

Daisy - Nothings as bad as it seems
Daisy - You know you can do anything
When your feeling like crying - Your only healing the pain
Daisy - Sweet loves gonna fill your life

I know I could of made things right
I could of told her how I felt inside
But I waited

I couldn't find the strength to say
The love is just a word a way
I hesitated

And I didn't even try to tell her
'cause I knew if I tried - She'd only ask why

Time had pushed our love aside and made us friends
And friendship can't die - I won't even try

Daisy - Nothings as bad as it seems
Daisy - You know you can do anything
When your feeling like crying - Your only healing the pain
Daisy - Sweet loves gonna fill your life

Daisy - Nothings as bad as it seems
Daisy - You know you can do anything
When your feeling like crying - Your only healing the pain
Daisy - Sweet loves gonna fill your life
It's gonna fill your live (Daisy)
Daisy - Sweet loves gonna fill your life
Track Name: Just Once *
JUST ONCE

I don't wanna be your last love
I don't wanna be your first love
I don't wanna be the one child in your heart day in day out
I mean that out of love

I don't get a thrill from crying
I don't get a thrill from lying
I don't get enough of you babe but I just can't give no more
Still that's what love is for

Just Once, I'd give anything
To know how you feel - To know what to do
Without fear of losing you

I don't wanna be your last love
I don't wanna be your first love
I don't wanna be the one child in your heart day in day out
I mean that out of love

Just Once, I'd give anything
To know how you feel - To know what to do
Without fear of losing you

I don't wanna be your last love
I don't wanna be your first love
I don't wanna be the one child in your heart day in day out
I mean that out of love (gonna go - gonna make it right)

I don't get a thrill from crying
I don't get a thrill from lying
I don't get enough of you babe but I just can't give no more
Still that's what love is for (no, baby, c'mon let it go)

I don't wanna be your last love
I don't wanna be your first love
Track Name: When I'm Not With You
WHEN I'M NOT WITH YOU

Oh Darl'in Darl'in I know its hard - And I never thought we could drift apart
And it hurts to just sit by when I know that you will cry alone tonight
Oh Darl'in Darl'in I know your scared - Your reach'in out and nobody's there
But after all that's said and done - I know that you're the only one for me

I only want to be with you (hold on)
Oh Baby Baby I'm not confused (its so strong)
I wanna get lost in love (hold on)
I only wanna be moved by you (its so strong)
'Cause you don't know what I go through
When I'm Not With You
When I'm Not With You

Oh Darl'in Darl'in I'm so afraid - That I'm miss'in out on this love we've made
And I feel so out of touch - Nearly close enough to fall in love again
I know I left you so lost in doubt - But now I'm so lost that I can't get out
And I know that I'm to blame - But I wish that we could feel the same again

I only want to be with you (hold on)
Oh Baby Baby I'm not confused (its so strong)
I wanna get lost in love (hold on)
I only wanna be moved by you (its so strong)
You just don't know what I go through

When I'm Not With You - Every day I get a little bit older
When I'm Not With You - The world gets a little bit colder
When I'm Not With You - My heart gets a little bit harder
When I'm Not With You - My dreams get a little bit darker
When I'm Not With You - Every minute seems to last forever
When I'm Not With You - I only want to be together

When I'm Not With You - You just don't know what I go through
When I'm Not With You - You just don't know what I go through

Just don't know what I go through - Just don't know what I go through
When I'm Not With You
Track Name: Getting Kinda Nowhere
GETTING KINDA NOWHERE

Is everything alright? Is there a backbeat in your life?
And are you satisfied? With all the shit you sacrificed

But I'm, getting kinda sleepy waiting here
Getting Kinda Nowhere
Where, were you, when there was nothing that we couldn't do?
Getting Kinda Nowhere

I'm feeling kinda cold - I guess I'm not myself tonight
When jealously takes hold - I know I'm holding on too tight

And I'm, getting kinda sleepy waiting here
Getting Kinda Nowhere
Where, (where) were you, (were you) when there was nothing that we couldn't do?
Getting Kinda Nowhere

I'll bet you're waiting for - Someone to hold the door
I'll bet you think life is owing you something more
I think you may have missed out - On what life is all about
Who cares, we're Getting Kinda Nowhere

(Ga Ga Ga Going Nowhere)
(Nowhere)

I wonder what I've done - To feel so plastic and exposed
If ignorance could run - I bet it'd run right over you ...

And I, could spend another lifetime getting here
Going Kinda Nowhere
Time, (time) will tell (tell) - If nothing else I know myself so well
Well enough to stay clear

Where, (where were you?) were you (where did you go?)
When there was nothing that we couldn't do?
Getting Kinda Nowhere
Here Am I - Getting kinda sleepy waiting here
Going Kinda Nowhere
Track Name: Addicted
ADDICTED

I'm getting away from everything - I love - about you
And when I'm gone - I'll miss my Mrs. Wrong

I'm putting you down for putting me out - of my - misery
My stepping stone - Is stepping on my will to be alone
So now I'm lonely

Starlight's the first light that I've ever seen - (A newborn idol)
My baby steps tripped on this tragic dream - (Its Suicidal)

My best intention is tearing my confidence in two
Lucky me - I'm addicted to you (ya know what I'm saying)

I'm getting away from everything - (from everything I love about you)
And when I'm gone - I'll miss my Mrs. Wrong

You better get out your 45's and put on - your - best goodbyes
My Vinyl Sun - will melt away my dreams gone wrong
You'll get burned by vision

My baby blues just blew your mind away - (A shotgun honeymoon)
Sand castles lives were swept up by the waves - (emotional typhoon)

My best intention is tearing my confidence in two
Lucky me - I'm addicted to you (ya know what I'm saying)
Track Name: Braindrops
BRAINDROPS

I wake up wondering where I've been
My sheets are soaked but I can't swim
I feel as if I've been misplaced
The years are dragging on my face - What a waste

I think I've lost my 'lost & found'
My feet won't even reach the ground
I stuff a pillow on my head
And I can't breathe its like I'm dead - But I can't quit

I think I've found my perfect circle (perfect circle)
How could you screw a square like me?
Its so frustrating (feels like I'm breaking)
Feels like I'm breaking

You put your faith in my appetite
Each bite I take tastes like suicide
Don't get me wrong 'cause I'm rarely right
but if your so strong why not take a bite

(I'm sorry) Save it for me - (So sorry) I'm so sorry but
Braindrops keep falling from my head
(I'm sorry) Save it for me - (So sorry) I'm so sorry but
Braindrops keep falling from my head

The world I knew is looking dim
My greatest hope looks pretty thin
Now everything I thought I knew
Looks pretty weird because of you
I'm confused (so confused)

(Don't you have a conscience)
I put a pill upon my conscience
And slipped upon this stream of thought
But I'm not forgiving (He's not forgiving)
The way I'm living (Living)

You put your faith in my appetite
Each bite I take tastes like suicide
Don't get me wrong 'cause I'm rarely right
but if your so strong why not take a bite

(I'm sorry) Save it for me - (So sorry) I'm so sorry but
Braindrops keep falling from my head
(I'm sorry) Save it for me - (So sorry) I'm so sorry
Braindrops keep falling from my head

(I'm sorry) Save it for me - (So sorry) I'm so sorry
Braindrops keep falling from my head

Save it for me - I'm so, sorry
Track Name: Affection *
AFFECTION

I'm thinking of you - That's all I can do - For you
Don't know if this all is true

I still see you there - but I know in time - I'll be alright
I feel you everywhere

Somehow from the start - The feelings we shared - were worlds apart
Affection still comes to you

I'm thinking of you - That's all I can do - For you
Don't know if this all's come true

I've witnessed the end - no lovers just 'friends'
Affection still comes to you

To you
Track Name: Vanity Rules *
VANITY RULES

I can see you dancing there
Your broken grin and long blonde hair
Those heartbreaking eyes just burn right through me

You push my heart across the floor
As you hold him close like we did before
And its so hard to bare, as you dance past me

Vanity Rules when a fool believe
Love is a lie that nobody needs
Sometimes you have to give in
Be willing to lose if you think you can't win
Let go of your pride and look deep inside
It's true, how Vanity Rules

The Dj plays our favorite song
And it feels so right but its all gone wrong
As you dance with your head upon his shoulder

The gym is flashing off and on
As your face lights up and then its gone
As a kiss never lies, I know its over

Vanity Rules when a fool believe
Love is a lie that nobody needs
Sometimes you have to give in
Be willing to lose if you think you can't win
Let go of your pride and look deep inside
It's true, how Vanity Rules

Vanity Rules when a fool believe
Love is a lie that nobody needs
Sometimes you have to give in
Be willing to lose if you think you can't win
Let go of your pride and look deep inside
It's true, how Vanity Rules
Track Name: The Agony Of Ecstasy
The Agony Of Ecstasy

Well I wonder – What the price of love will be
Well I’ve heard it – Love don’t come so easy

Still worries don’t arouse the problems that I fear
There’s probably nothing to the words I hear
My illusion of the perfect love will never be
‘Cause there will always be

The Agony of Ecstasy – Tearing through my misery
The Agony of Ecstasy – Saving me from sanity

Well I’ve seen her – A vision of integrity
And she takes me – She lifts me up and sets me free

Still something’s gotta happen though nothing is there
If she doesn’t love me then I really don’t care
It’s happened before – it comes so naturally
‘Cause there will always be

The Agony of Ecstasy – Tearing through my misery
The Agony of Ecstasy – Saving me from sanity

Nobody can find it – It just happens when it happens
Nobody can hide it – Just imagine, when it happens
Just forget how she burned you
There’s only one lesson to learn

The Agony of Ecstasy – Tearing through my misery
Saving me from sanity - The Agony of Ecstasy
Track Name: Down Forever
DOWN FOREVER

The children playing on a dark cloudy day
The school bell ringing puts an end to their play
Across the school yard there's a man on display
The local doctor giving candy away

And school drags on in its infinite wisdom
While broken Angels are locked in their prison
And everyone knows that the teacher is posing
As practical questions are whimsically chosen

And Lucy is tripping on Tangerine Trees - going

Down Forever - Down Forever
She floats on emotion so effortlessly - going
Down Forever - Down Forever
She feels nobody knows what it means to be free
Then suddenly, she slips away ...
Track Name: Love Looks This Way *
LOVE LOOKS THIS WAY

I forgive you - Everything that you do
'Cause tomorrow - Means the world to a fool
And even if I could - I wouldn't run from you

I remember - I was once where you are
Couldn't trust love - Didn't know where to start
And I was nowhere - 'til I came to you

But if I'm gonna run forever - Let me run to you
And if it hurts to be together - Let me wait for you
And if you ever find your lonely - Know I'm only a heartbeat away
And I'll wait - 'til Love Looks This Way
Track Name: What Was Then *
WHAT WAS THEN

For awhile - We were best friends
So much can tell you - The way that she feels
One look in her eyes - And loves not there anymore

And it hurts so much when
Two hearts are crossed - Then so much is lost
What Was Then - Can never happen again

Still I love her - Still I care
How can I show my love if she's never there
Now I wonder, if she wasn't wrong
How can a memory burn on so long
How could she tell me that life goes on

But somehow tonight - I know she's right
What Was Then - Can never happen again
Track Name: Take Me To Your Heart
TAKE ME TO YOUR HEART

Take Me To Your Heart - To the soul of your problem
Together we could solve them - Don't doubt my love for you

Take me to the start - Tell me why you're hurting
Tell me your feeling - Is there something I can do

Let me know now - If you don't need my caring
If your not into sharing - Your love with me

Tell me somehow - What's left you so unsure
Who's left you with this hurt heart - Your pains not hard to see
(Don't you, Don't you Cry)

Take me in you arms - Let me see your broken heart
Don't be left so alarmed - I've be sincere from the very start

Take Me To Your Heart - Take Me To Your Heart

Take Me To Your Heart - To the soul of your problem
Together we could solve them - Don't doubt my love for you

Take Me To Your Heart - Don't you doubt me
Take Me To Your Heart - Don't you love me
Take Me To Your Heart - Don't you doubt me
Take Me To Your Heart
Track Name: Loving The Lonely *
LOVING THE LONELY

There comes a time when lovers change - But in between love lasts forever
When lovers leave feel the same - Wishing they were together

And everyone knows - Its hard to let go
But Loving The Lonely only hurts more
Some never let go - And some never know
Loving The Lonely only hurts more

Even lovers play the game - Words of love left unspoken
There comes a time when love needs change - Twisted ties left

And everyone knows - Its hard to let go
But Loving The Lonely only hurts more
Some never let go - And some never know
That Loving The Lonely only hurts more

I'll be your everything - I'll be here waiting

Now we both have all we need - Empty hearts learning together
When the time comes, we will leave - But inbetween lets love forever

And everyone knows - Its hard to let go
But Loving The Lonely only hurts more
Some never let go - And some never know
Loving The Lonely only hurts more

Some never let go - Its hard to let go
But Loving The Lonely only hurts more
Some never let go - And some never know
Loving The Lonely only hurts more
