Seven Nation Army (cover)

My previous blog mentioned a recent recording date with function band Switch. We recorded about three or four tracks for the band’s website, two of which we filmed videos for.

The first video, for ‘Mercy’, you can watch here.

Our cover of ‘Seven Nation Army’ was the second video we recorded that day. As you can tell from the video, we had a bit of fun with this one. It still has quite a few nice shots of my Gold Epiphone Les Paul though…

Guitar wise, this is the LP from the video, using the neck pickup, coil-tapped. The slide is solid brass & it’s going through one of the studio’s Marshall amps (not the Orange stack you see in the video, though that does sound pretty cool).

Thanks to Loft Music Studios for the recording & production of the track, Nemix Studios for the video location and Artifact Media for shooting it! 

Enjoy!

A song for Black Friday: Mercy (cover)

Is it Black Friday? Have mercy…

Tenuous enough of s link for you? Good.

Earlier this year I hit the studio with function band Switch, and this cover of ‘Mercy’ (made famous by Duffy) was one of the tracks we recorded.

The guitar I used was the same one you can see in the video: Fender Modern Player Stratocaster going through one of the in-house Marshall combos at the Loft Studios.

Thanks to Loft Studios, Newcastle upon Tyne, for the recording session & production. Also many thanks to Nemix studios (also Newcastle), which was our location for the video, and to Artifact Media for the film production!

Enjoy!

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Poster — reblogged from headfuzz by grimboid

I spotted this when browsing my WordPress reader and it was simply too beautiful not to share!

This poster encapsulates the real heart (as well as most memorable scene) from Steven Spielberg classic  E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, while incorrating John Williams’ main theme from the film.

Hearing even a brief snippet of the score is enough to make me think of the scene depicted in the poster below, and this image adds the typography of the written music into the background of the image itself. It’s a delightfully simple, yet incredibly effective idea which I absolutely love.

Anyway, enjoy this image, and may I recommend that you check out more of Grimboid’s work by clicking here.
