Sunday Free Noodle 21

This Weeks noodle is:



Matt Stevens - Draw (Rough Solo Mix), Guitar/Fuzz Bass/Guitar Synth, Filter Pedal - Stuart Marshall Drum Loop - K Feazey - Programming Recorded by K Feazey Not mixed or mastered.



This weeks noodle is an example of when you try something and it doesn’t work - we went for an electric solo on this, thinking kind of Neil Young/Thurston Moore/Zappa(live)/Greg Ginn messed up soloing - we just ended up kind of messy. Thats what happen when you do last minute… Continue

Hi,

Hope you’re having a great day. Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you a little about Roosevelt Bandwagon:

Roosevelt Bandwagon's personnel currently reside in London, UK. The band comprises a fluid line-up of extremely experienced musicians who have been writing, recording and touring internationally in various guises for many years. The ethos is to play the music that comes most naturally to its members with absolutely no consideration whatsoever for the trends, fashions and formulae of the commercial music industry.

Having played house concerts many times in the States in years gone by we love the idea of the House Concert Hub – it is certainly more focused than other social networking sites and far more friendly!!!

We’re currently doing sessions for a full length album which should be ready by May of this year. In the mean time, we have put out the ‘Train Roll On’ EP. We have a limited edition of free pressings which we’re mailing out to those people who request it – hurry and drop us a line before we run out! Tracks can also be heard on our home page/ visit us on myspace: www.myspace.com/rooseveltbandwagon where you can download the tracks for free.

Do please drop us a line – we’d love to hear your thoughts on our music/ have you as a friend.

Best wishes & have a great weekend.

Roosevelt Bandwagon

Thanks Matt seems to be some really good stuff going down now, Angie Palmer did a show for us this week and was telling me she just about book a Dutch tour through people she's met here, would be great if we can get to the point where artists can conect with a support structure in every country, considering were only a couple of months old who knows where we will be this time next year. Send me your fans with a big front room. Can't believe we havn't got a House Concert in London yet.

Hi Matt, there's always plenty going on music-wise not that much of it with pay. Trapped in a pay-to-play hell! I got your wee dolls house player thingy working (wouldn't load before?) and I don't think I know anybody doing what you do. Great sounds. I'm all for a bit if honesty & integrity, well I gave up on perfection along time ago.
Cheers

Looking for house concerts for piano trio January 4-8.

I'll be traveling in Northern Europe with my traditional jazz and American roots music piano trio in early January. We're trying to fill some dates between January 4-8, wondering if anyone here would be interested in having us perform at their house concert series. Below is a link to a video where you can see what we do. you can email me directly at jaredengel<at>gmail<dot>com.  Cheers!…See More
