*************************************************************************
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: What's In A Tear? *
WHAT'S IN A TEAR?

I wasn’t lonely – I wasn’t blue
I knew exactly what I’d found in you
You left a letter and you made it clear
So tell me, What’s In A Tear?

Now every morning – I reach for you
Your pillow still retains the scent of perfume
You left your picture hanging on the mirror
And on it you wrote ‘What’s In A Tear?’

(Walk for hours - All night walking)
I walk for hours in the dead of night
All alone with you on my mind

(Just one tear could make it better)
Just one tear would make it all seem right
But no, you left me in time

Now I’m never lonely – I’m never blue
I know exactly what I’ve lost in you
I hear your laughter ringing in my ears
So tell me, What’s In A Tear?
Your love was so insincere
I won’t shed for you one more tear
Track Name: Coming Back For You
COMING BACK FOR YOU

I never thought I knew you ‘til I held you in my arms
I guess I never knew you – I was persuaded by your charms
I held my heart out – You let go

Everything you told me – I was so deeply moved
Never felt so happy – Never felt so confused
Nothing mattered much ‘til you

Baby I’m sorry, but that’s not – the end of this story
‘Cause I’m Coming Back For You – tonight
You think it’s over but I’ve found, my four leaf clover
And I’m Coming Back For You – tonight (tonight’s the night)

I miss the very magic of emotions in your hands
The way you held a moment like a master with a plan
No sooner said than done away (just threw it all away)

As every single second is a movement in an hour
Every breath you take just makes me weak and gives you power
Some things hardly seem so fair (it’s no fair)

Baby I’m sorry, but that’s not – the end of this story
‘Cause I’m Coming Back For You – tonight
You think it’s over but I’ve found, my four leaf clover
And I’m Coming Back For You – tonight

Baby I’m sorry, but that’s not – the end of this story
‘Cause I’m Coming Back For You – tonight
You think it’s over but I’ve found, my four leaf clover
And I’m Coming Back For You – tonight
Track Name: Melt Me Down To Size *
MELT ME DOWN TO SIZE

I take one look in your eyes - You melt me down to size
Whenever we're together - I get so high
Sometimes I'm noth'in but lies but you just melt me back down to size

Back track, search'in, for something to use
You've never done me no wrong (am I wrong)
Get down, search'in, for some kinda clue
But girl you were always so strong (your so strong)
And I know now your still hold'in on (please hold on)

I Take one look in your eyes - You melt me back down to size
Whenever we're together - I get so high
Sometimes I'm noth'in but lies but you just melt me back down to size

This girl is one girl - I'll never let go
I'm a piece in the puzzle for you (piece of you)
You know what I need still I need you to know
There's nothing that I wouldn't give (I won't give)
But you still got your own life to live (let me live)

I Take one look in your eyes - You melt me back down to size
Whenever we're together - I get so high
Sometimes I'm noth'in but lies but you just melt me back down to size

She, gets me so high - All night
I feel so alive - All right
She knows me and I know it

I Take one look in your eyes - Oh You melt me back down to size
Whenever we're together - I get so high
Sometimes I'm noth'in but lies but you just melt me back down to size

I Take one look in your eyes - You melt me back down to size
Whenever we're together - I get so high
Sometimes I'm noth'in but lies but you just melt me back down to size (You melt me down)

Take one look in my eyes - See what you've done
I feel so high (my butterfly) - You are the one
Track Name: Baby Blues
BABY BLUES

For awhile - I wasn't lonely or blue
Given time - I'd find love again
But now I'm - I'm thinking of only you
And I find - It's hard to pretend

When I said I couldn't love you - I spoke too soon
'Cause now your gone and I need you
So take me back - Please bring back
My Baby Blues

For a while - Nothing could change my foolish ways
Now I find - I'm hardly the same
Since you've gone - The loneliness fills up my days
And the nights - Brings nothing put pain

I just can't keep pretending - The hurts not real
'Cause only you - knows how it feels
So take me back - Please bring back
My Baby Blues

I let the best thing that I had just slip away
I said what I said - Then I went out to find a better way
But if I could get you back - I'd lay my love right out flat
And save my lies for fools

For awhile - I wasn't lonely
Given time, Given time - I might find your love again
'cause now I'm - I'm thinking of only you
And I try - I just can't pretend

oooo Baby - Take me back
Baby Baby - uh huh ahhh
Won't you bring back - My Baby Blues

Oh My Baby Blues - My Baby Blues

My Baby Blues
Track Name: More Than Anything
MORE THAN ANYTHING

More Than Anything I wanna be with you tonight

It's Sunday Morning - 5:00am
Feel trapped alone in this house again
The radio is muffled by the rain
The wind is howling like a dog in pain

Now I never sleep
'cause I never know when you might come home
I don't wanna be alone

More Than Anything I wanna be with you tonight
Girl More Than Anything
I Wanna Be With You

I remember now like it was yesterday
We were strong enough to take the hurt away
but now shadows fall on nearly every wall
Those memories just break like clay

Now all that I know
Is I'd give anything to bring you home
I don't want to let you go

More Than Anything I wanna be with you tonight
(I wanna be with you) Girl More Than Anything
I Wanna Feel Your Love

And when I close my eyes - I dream your beside me
Holding me closely only like you do
My fingers run through your hair - Then I'm suddenly quite aware
I'm down on my knees - begging you please (please)

More Than Anything I wanna be with you tonight
(ya I do) Girl More Than Anything (I wanna be with you tonight)
I wanna be with you (ooo be with you)
Girl More Than Anything (I wanna be with you)
I wanna feel your love

Girl More Than Anything - I wanna be with you
I wanna feel your love - make all your dreams come true
Girl More Than Anything - I wanna be with you
I wanna feel your love - make all your dreams come true

Track Name: Dreams (As Good As This)
You weren't what I had expected
You were so much more real
I detected more than a smile
A style, I couldn't see through

And you weren't just there
You're everywhere it seems
And Dreams Don't Get As Good As This

I just couldn't imagine myself
In love with a girl like you
Maybe it won't be the same in a while
But now its too good to be true

And you weren't a cliche'
In every way your new
And Dreams Don't Get As Good As This

You weren't what I had expected
You were so much more real
I detected more than a smile
A style, I couldn't see through

And you weren't just there
You're everywhere it seems
And Dreams Don't Get As Good As This

I'm only sleeping - Is this real love?
Please don't you wake me - If its real love

And you weren't just there
You're everywhere it seems
And Dreams Don't Get As Good As This

You weren't what I had expected
You were so much more real
I detected more than a smile
A style, I couldn't see through
Track Name: Love Crumbs
LOVE CRUMBS

I got a feeling – I’m feeling pretty good
I feel the way I feel I should – I understand its understood
I’m quite decisive – I know just what to do
I do the things I do for you – We stick together, I’m stuck like glue

Love is loving the Love Crumbs – Big or small - I love them all
All I get is your Love Crumbs – but thats alright – They’re out of sight
I’m the candle and you’re the flame – And baby you bet I’m amazed

I got this habit – Its getting kinda hard
And missing you is the hardest part – I wrap my world around your heart
Your my temptation – My only real vice
And that’s the price of sacrifice – And giving in can feel so nice

Love is loving the Love Crumbs – Big or small - I love them all
All I got is your Love Crumbs – but thats alright – They’re out of sight
I’m the candle and you’re the flame – And baby you bet I’m amazed
But look at the mess that we’ve made - Love Crumbs are coming our way
Track Name: The Soap Oprah Show
THE SOAP OPRAH SHOW

He woke up in a place called Eden – She filled his Paradise with weeds
She couldn’t tolerate his drink’in – He couldn’t tolerate her greed

And all at once it shattered – Those magic things that mattered
They put their hearts into their pain
They ripped into each other – ‘cigarettes & aftershave’
They’re gonna settle it, in 15 minutes of fame (4,3,2,1)

Lights, camera, action – first question
Who gets the children – The 6.2 million
It’s all on The Soap Oprah Show

The satisfaction – drives them
She screwed my dentist – ‘He wears my dresses!’ (That’s sick)
It’s all on The Soap Oprah Show (It’s all on The Soap Oprah Show)
Come join The Soap Oprah Show

She fancied filling in the soft spots – He tried to court an angry mob
She felt the jury was impartial – He judged the host by Murphy’s Law

They shared their indiscretions – Fueled by the worst intentions
They wanted Neilson on their side
Two lambs for public slaughter – The applesauce was applause
All the attention, relieved the loss

Let’s take a phone in – next question
Was she abducted – Who’s he corrupted
It’s all on The Soap Oprah Show (Step right up for the show!)

Don’t touch that channel – It’s show & tell
Bribes & corruption – verdict ‘assumption’
It’s all on The Soap Oprah Show
There’s two sides to truth every show

(I wanna know – wants wrong with these kids today?!)

Here Dr. Rhenquest, A specialist
“He’s just a victim” (of love) “She shows the symptoms” (I detect neglected love)
“They’re what I’d both called normal” (Their just a victim of life)
All on The Soap Oprah Show

(Are you still there?)
Track Name: You Changed Me *
YOU CHANGED ME

Just when I thought I had had you - Fall'in for me
You picked yourself up again and - Fell right past me

Could it be the lights aren't low enough - You cut right through me
Could it be nights aren't long enough - You can't see what I mean

You Changed Me - I realize that words don't mean a lot
You Changed Me - You broke me down and look at what I got

Just when I thought it was work'in - You turned right off of me
Just when my life started shak'in - You broke my heart in three

You Changed Me - I realize that words don't mean a lot
You Changed Me - You broke me down and this is what I got

Mind twisting, heart breaking, soul crushing, bad tasting, depressing, head messing
Memories of You and Me - Where can I get some sympathy?

Just when I thought I had had you - Fall'in for me
You picked yourself up again and - Fell right past me

Could it be the lights aren't low enough - You cut right through me
Could it be nights aren't long enough - You can't see what I mean

You Changed Me - I realize that words don't mean a lot
You Changed Me - You broke me down and look at what I got

Bacardi tranquilizers, Snow White's eight energizers
Neurotic fantasies and memories of You and Me - Where can I get some sympathy?

You Changed Me - I realize that words don't mean a lot
You Changed Me - You broke me down and now its got to stop

You Changed Me - If this is love, it isn't what I thought
You Changed Me - All I know is now its gotta to stop
Track Name: 4 U *
4U

Setting my love upon a shelf
An old forgotten room
Keeping the world all to myself
A door that closed too soon

You said you loved me
Would always need me
I said I loved you too

Like some sad story
You said your sorry
Now what else can I do
For You
Track Name: Daisy - (Version 2.0) *
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
