*************************************************************************
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.

Artist: Lazy Dynamite

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: Down On You
DOWN ON YOU

Every night I find myself here - molding my world out of despair
I wonder why I feel forgotten - broken with nothing to repair

But if I feel I've been betrayed - I've only myself to blame
The truth is hard to see

And if I seem ungrateful - depressed or less than graceful
It's not because I'm bitter but just because I'm screwed

Going Down On You - I'm going Down On You
I'm getting Down On You - I'm Going Down

Some days I get so frustrated - Fucked up and somewhat deflated
Nobody wants to hear my problems - that's fine 'cause no-one could solve them

And if I feel that I've been used - confessions reveal the confused
There's no-one here but me

I wish I knew the answer - some cure to kill this cancer
I'm overwhelmed with anger and your just waiting there

Going Down On You - I'm going Down On You
I'm getting Down On You - I'm Going Down

Going Down On You - I'm getting Down On You
I'm going Down on You - Going Down
Track Name: For Now Or Forever
For Now Or Forever

If your alone - And need someone to call
Just call me on the phone - And you won't be alone

And if you cry - And need somewhere to hide
I'll be by your side - You won't need to cry

Love me For Now Or Forever
I'm never gonna hurt ya little girl
Give into love and surrender yourself
Just put some trust into your world

Sometimes you have to let go
It's the only way that you'll ever know
For Now Or Forever

So dry your eyes - Trust yourself tonight
Feel love come alive - Baby dry your eyes
If there's a way - I'll make you want to stay
I'll take your hurt away - Show me there's a way

Love me For Now Or Forever
I'm never gonna hurt ya little girl
Give into love and surrender yourself
Just put some trust into your world

Sometimes you have to let go
It's the only way that you'll ever know
For Now Or Forever

Forever goodbye - Forever I'll love you
I'll be there when you call my name
I'll be there when you call me
Begging you to call
I'm begging you I don't want to be alone
Pick up the phone
I'm down here on my own
Track Name: Still Alone *
STILL ALONE

You got a lot on your mind - You tell me lov'in takes time
As much as that's true - I still need you

You gotta break down this wall - Love don't mean noth'in at all
With me wait'in outside - My prayers denied

I love you a lot - Love's all I got
If loves not enough - You're on your own

I can't give no more - So open the door
You want it, it's yours - Still Alone

So give me one good reason - I need to know why your leaving
You got all my love - Why can't that be enough?

I love you a lot - Love's all I got
If loves not enough - You're on your own

I can't give no more - So open the door
You want it, it's yours - I'm Still Alone

You just push me away - away when it suits you
You'll never know what its like
Every day to pray for moment
When everything feels alright

I'm alone in devotion
I've been the one all along
Can't feel a thing beyond this emotion
Maybe I was wrong

You got a lot on your mind - You tell me lov'in takes time
As much as that's true - I still need you

I love you a lot - Love's all I got
If loves not enough - You're on your own

I can't give no more - So open the door
You want it, it's yours - I'm Still Alone
Stil Alone - I'm Still Alone - Still Alone

I'm Still Alone
Track Name: Give A Little Bit *
GIVE A LITTLE BIT

More and More I'm losing my grip
I've started to slip - into my feelings

You and I - we're feeling too much
I'm falling in love - Its like I'm dreaming

I want too much - I've got to Give A Little Bit
Give A Little Bit of My Love

I ask too much - I'm gonna Give A Little Bit
Give A Little Bit of My Love

Now I know - I'm too far gone
I can't hold on - The tables turning

Time is time and time doesn't last
It's moving too fast and you're not learning

I ask too much - I'm gonna Give A Little Bit
Give A Little Bit of My Love

You mean so much - I've got to Give A Little Bit
Give A Little Bit of My Love

{You got my love - The Best of My Love}

Even though I know I can't stay
I'm going to say - The way I'm feeling

I know how you feel deep inside
Love can't be denied - It's like I'm dreaming

{I love you girl - I'm not gonna fight it - Alright}

I want too much - I've got to Give A Little Bit
Give A Little Bit of My Love

You mean so much - I'm gonna Give A Little Bit
Give A Little Bit of my love - My Love
Track Name: My Only Fear
MY ONLY FEAR

Whenever I lose you - I wonder what you lose
Somewhere your laughing while I lay here dying

Whenever I find you - I seem to find myself too
Love lives in shadows while faith wins some battles

Time, doesn't take what it gives
Its a chance to truly live
But time took its toll on us
And we, lived up to nothing much

You say forever (you say forever) was never so near
That's - That's My Only Fear

Forgive me for facing (forgive me) - The tears I'm embracing
(Where did all the time go)
Years feel like moments when nobody owns it

So where does it take you (where does it take you)
When life doesn't break you in two?
(Where does it take you?) If only you knew

But time (never stops ticking) - Only gives what it takes
Doesn't care who's heart it breaks
But time took its toll on us
And we lived up to something I can't touch

I know forever was never so near
That's My Only Fear (That's My Only Fear)

Where do we go from here
Don't want to lose it
I need you to help me get through it
Your My Only Fear
'cause nobody's left but you
Track Name: Pretty Weird
PRETTY WEIRD

It seems forever I've been so in love with you
I guess that something I was always meant to do

That's why I'm crying - Feels like I'm dying
When you said your sad goodbyes - My heart replied

I really miss you - miss your way
I'm gonna miss you - every day
Don't wanna miss you
Love Is Pretty Weird - I wish You were here

In such a strange and pretty place I found your love
Somehow you faced the world when tears were not enough

My strength deserts me - I'm yours completely
But you knew I had to leave - Love tempted me

I really miss you - miss your way
I'm gonna miss you - every day
Don't wanna miss you
Love Is Pretty Weird - I wish You were here
Track Name: Voices
VOICES

Hello to all that I've known - A world of my own
Where no-one gets in - Nobody

Goodbye - It's safe here inside
If I ever get out - Will I get out alive (don't try)

Call me - Mr. Lonely
Call me anytime at all
It's me - Mr. Lonely
You know it wouldn't hurt to call me Mr. Lonely

Voices are calling me - They keep me here for company
I'm safe and warm inside my guilt free cage of misery
Keep all my hurt here from you all for me
Voices may call for you but you should let them be

Goodbye my pretty blue eyes
Yesterday cries for no-one (nobody)
Breakdown and I can't get up
I've had enough - I can't get it back

Call me - Mr. Lonely
Call me anytime at all
It's me - Mr. Lonely
You know it wouldn't hurt to call me Mr. Lonely

Voices are calling me - They keep me here for company
I'm safe and warm inside my guilt free cage of misery
(keep all my hurt from you here inside of me)
Keep all my hurt here from you all for me
Voices may call for you but you should let them be

Call me - Mr. Lonely
Call me any time at all (Please make the call)
It's me - Mr. Lonely
God it wouldn't hurt to call (You can call me anytime)

Call me - Mr. Lonely
Call me any time at all (I'm waiting)
It's me - Mr. Lonely
You know it wouldn't hurt to call me - Mr. Lonely

Going down memory lane
Brings a picture of endless pain - Forgive Me
Track Name: Pain Out Of Pleasure
PAIN OUT OF PLEASURE

I know, what your thinking - I know you too well
And I don't think you know a thing - About me or you

Some words, are rarely spoken - Some things are so easily broken
But you can't break what you can't touch

You take the Pain Out Of Pleasure - But you don't know what to do with it
Just take the time and do it right girl - 'Cause that's all that matters

You take the Pain Out Of Pleasure - But you don't know how to use it
You always find something wrong - When somethings right inside

You know, how to hold it - But you don't know whats holding it together
Its pleasure

Your eyes, hold reflections - Your past has made a bad impression
You don't know which lies are true

You take the Pain Out Of Pleasure - You don't know what to do with it
Just take the time and do it right girl - 'Cause that's all that matters

You take the Pain Out Of Pleasure - You don't know how to use it
You always find something wrong - When somethings right inside

You take the Pain Out Of Pleasure
Just take your time and do it right girl - 'Cause that's all that matters

You take the Pain Out Of Pleasure - You don't know how to use it
You always find something wrong - When somethings right inside

You take the pain all away
(Take your time) Its almost over

You take my pain (You take all my pain)
Take it away (Take it away)
Take your time - Its almost over

You take my pain (You take all my pain)
Take it away (Take it away)
Take your time - Its almost over

You take my pain (You take all my pain)
Take it away (Take it away)
Track Name: Mentally In Vain
MENTALLY IN VAIN

For every penny that you thought about
I’d give a penny for your thoughts if I thought that you could live without

Every price has got its own reward
But what a price to pay when God is kick’in down your door

Your liv’in healthy in your inner space
You got a modem up your ass and a television in your face

There’s a flood and its fill’in up the Gates
There’s a spider in the web and its watch’in like a pentagon

Discipline could slip a pin into that bubble
But as the world unwinds it might circumcise your will

If I could sleep I’d probably wake up in your heaven
And we could build the walls of wisdom like a prison on God’s hill

Pray for tomorrow – Maybe I’ll borrow your pain
Life never seemed so strange
All that I want is everything
I’m Mentally In Vain

You’re pretty noble for a hypocrite
There’s logic to the lies – you’re a manufactured invalid

Sun Tzu wasn’t play’in with your mind
What you fail to plan will kick you right between the eyes

Rock hard with your silicone soul
You could finger fuck my conscience but your never gonna take a hold

My life doesn’t scare me like it should
When they push real hard there’s no way that I could live without

Innocence could lift the world up on my shoulders
But as your faith unwinds it might jeopardize my soul

Genocide will put a price on your ambition
In the age of information our salvations bought and sold

Pray for tomorrow – Maybe I’ll borrow your pain
Life never seemed so strange
All that I want is everything
I’m Mentally in Vain

What are you waiting for
Just sell your soul – It opens every door
What would I do with everything?
I’m Mentally In Vain
What would you do with everything?
We’re Mentally In Vain
Track Name: Cringe
CRINGE

Every time I think I’m in love
Something goes and messes it up
Every time I ask myself why
I find my will is willing to die

Time will help me forget the world I know
I’ve had my fill of regret – I need to go

Frustrated – Deflated
I don’t know how or what to begin
The world just makes me Cringe

Confessions – Depressions
I’m all fucked up and married to sin
The world just makes me Cringe

Life is bringing me down
If this is lost I need to be found
Everything I ever believed
Has been replaced by lies and deceit

Fear has twisted itself around my soul
If I could leave I know I’d get out and take control

Frustrated – Deflated
I don’t know how or what to begin
The world just makes me Cringe

Confessions – Depressions
I’m all fucked up and married to sin
The world just makes me Cringe

Down you found me but don’t go down there
You won’t leave there so don’t go down there

Frustrated – Deflated
I don’t know how or what to begin
The world just makes me Cringe

Confessions – Depressions
I’m all fucked up and married to sin
The world just makes me Cringe

Frustrated – Deflated
I don’t know how or what to begin
The world just makes me Cringe
Track Name: Love Seems To Hate You
LOVE SEEMS TO HATE YOU

These are the longest days - These are the coldest night
These are the hardest tears - I've ever had to fight

It seems so unnatural - The pain I've put us through
Love Seems To Hate You

Why does it hurt to laugh - What is there left to cry
Why do my dreams exist - When nothing is left inside

It feels so out of fashion - That I love you like I do
Love Seems To Hate You - But what can we do

Look in your heart and you'll see there's a part of my life living in you
Everything's changed but it still feels the same only now, we're broken in two

Yours are the softest tears - You are my warmest dreams
You have the brightest eyes - I've ever seen

Guess I'm in love now - And there's nothing you can do
Love Seems To Hate You - Love Seems To Hate You
Track Name: Since You Are Gone *
SINCE YOU ARE GONE

I light up a cigarette - try forget that you are gone
Since You Are Gone - You are gone

Smoke fills my aching head - memories and dreams are dead
Since You Are Gone - You are gone

I don't know - if all I've said
Makes any sense but after all its just a song

I don't care how long I wait
Or how much time that it takes
'til you come home - come on home (don't go don't go)

Its only a matter of time - 'til you come back to me
How could I ever be wrong - you best just wait and see
Its only a matter of time - 'til you come home to me
How could I ever be wrong

I light up a cigarette - try forget that you are gone
Since You Are Gone - You are gone
Track Name: Casualty
CASUALTY

She telephones – She tells me that she needs me
She’s all alone and she knows I’ll come, but I
I should of known – She always says the same thing
She hardly noticed my heart break

What is it about her – I can’t get on without her

I wanna be with her forever
But she don’t know how much I love her
I can never win – ‘Cause she’s in love with him
It hurts me more when we’re together

We sit alone – talking ‘bout her problems
And every word is like deja vu, because
Every time she’s fighting with her lover
I’m the one she comes running to

What is it about her – I can’t get on without her

I wanna be with her forever
But she don’t know how much I love her
I can never win – ‘Cause she’s in love with him
It hurts me more when we’re together

Time doesn’t cry for you and I - We’re just another Casualty
Life passes by and we can cry - but that won’t change the things we need

We had our chance but circumstance is always breaking things in two
So let it go and always know – I’ll be here for you – Whenever you want me too

I wanna be with her forever - But she don’t know how much I love her
I can never win – ‘Cause she’s in love with him
I want to be with her forever – but she don’t know how much I love her

Time doesn’t cry for you and I - We’re just another Casualty
Life passes by and we can cry - But that won’t change the things we need

We had our chance but circumstance is always breaking things in two
So let it go and always know – I’ll be here for you
