I'm in a band & that band is called SOUND CLUB.

We play music in our band. I play lead guitar.

Please, check us out on myspace then laugh at me or bow down, probably the latter. Best song up is Smoking Gun, of the others one is an acoustic and the other is like just the intro

Haha, there should be a flash media player on the right hand side of the screen, I think it just plays automatically when it streams (around 3MB) or just click the 'Download' under the song title 'Smoking Gun'.

Cheers Car, ROFL gay music

I really like the music you play, the drumming and guitar work is really good, but I'm not sure I like the singers voice or style.
I'm not having a dig or anything as I feel there is potential there, but hopefully he sounds better when you record at a real studio where you can tweak and edit stuff compared to the 'home studio' as you put it.
The whole band has potential though, decent music :)

Relly nice mate, enjoyed both songs up there atm would like to hear with some better recording, keep at it think the band could progress well.

You got some hot groupies too :bow:

Bantros

Haha thanks Haci, we love the hot groupies

Bantros

New song available, Smoke and Mirrors, get it checked out

Branded
15-06-2006, 01:01 PM
yeah I liked your shit dude, but I thought the same as mark0 when I first heard the vocals...he needs singing lessons because he's not using his voice as well as he could, either that or new vocalist needed...i know it's cuntish but, you have to get the vocals right if you want to make it...but it all depends on what 'making it' is to you, and the band...what are your hopes/aspirations/targets?

Bantros
15-06-2006, 02:24 PM
We're going to be signed and gigging all over the show this time next year, that's a target!

Hah, you can say what you want about the vocals really, all I care about is the song overall and the mother fucking guitar! + he's a pretty damn good front man, so it kind of makes up for it a little...

Bantros

Quick update if your interested (you fucking will be when we fucking get going)

New picture blog on MySpace.com (http://blog.myspace.com/keepitsoundclub) from a gig at the Mixing Tin in Leeds on the 24th July, 30+ snaps this one being my favourite

Cheers.

Alex, my best mate who plays rhythm guitar in the band writes all the chords & lyrics and I write all the lead guitar parts ie. the best bits.

NB. Does anyone know if Pheer put my songs on the fragFM radio yesterday? Yakkkkk was saying something about it...

Haha quality stuff Mark0. Good shot though!

Mark0
03-08-2006, 02:28 AM
Aye, I love b&w band photos. I prefer more contrasty stuff though, especially for indie/rock bands. It adds character!

I'll PM you tomorrow for sure about the thing I roughly mentioned. I have a cunning plan :)

Also, I'm heading down to Liverpool next Wednesday & Thursday to do some photos for a band :) I'll let you know how I get on with those :monkeysmi

4 live tracks been put up onto our MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/keepitsoundclub), FREE DOWNLOADS!!

Sound quality is excellent for live tracks, get 'em while they're hot!

Bantros
24-11-2006, 02:45 AM
Also check out Last.fm.

Basically it's a little plugin you can download that tracks all your listening in itunes, wma, winamp etc. You make a profile and that's that, shows what you've just listened to and then every Sunday weekly charts come up for albums, artists, tracks.

It's a bit of an arse downloading through MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/keepitsoundclub), so when the tracks are up our Last.fm (http://www.last.fm/music/Sound+Club/), you can get them from there

'Devil Dust' and 'Dont Let Them Bring You Down' are good tunes,somebody else already said it and i agree i dont like the vocals,sorry no offence intended and what the fuck do i know anyway.good luck and always wear a johnny when your humping all the groupies when your famous :) .

Thats pretty good work, nice songs, and as one commenter said reminds me of the Stone Roses, which is never a bad thing. Agreed that the vocals could do with a bit of work but they're not absolutely atrocious.

Gl and keep it going!

Nice tracks, very typical Manchester feel to the music.

Keep up the good work, and never forget the dream :D

Sov dude ditch the vocals man, its fucking almost whining like sorry to be harsh but this needs a reality check, the vocals; yeah rugged, yeah original most likely your good mate but man, singing lessons or bust, its the only thing i really dont like about sound club. you aint gonna get anywhere with vocals like that man, unless its completely different live. just my downright honest opinion man. Good luck man. Peace.

Bantros
20-02-2007, 05:37 PM
Hmmm, quite a few people we know have said the same thing about the vocals. But then again, other people think it sounds pretty good. I never thought they were bad, just average I guess.

Studios work magic these days though...

So true... in the words of the almighty Ben Folds - Rockin' The Suburbs:

Studios work magic these days though...

but what about live,in a small pub or club venue where everbody is pissed it wont matter but as you get more popular and start to play bigger venues (hopefully) it might.

he isnt really bad,and im sure with a voice coach he could improve 100%,but as ive said before what the fuck do i know :) .

Bantros
22-02-2007, 07:12 PM
Nah I agree, but don't really know what to do about it. Telling your mate and house mate that he needs singing lessons? I'll pass on that one!

He's a really good frontman though, we'll just have to wait and see

N1Jimmy
22-02-2007, 07:18 PM
Now, I guess I do know a thing or two about vocals - I sing with a swing band, amateur musicals etc. and had a fair bit of vocal coaching not too long in the past.

He's not bad at all I think, certainly doesn't merit some of the comments above. His voice is very well suited to the style of music and as I think I've seen you say somewhere before, a confident and engaging stage presence from your lead singer is almost as important at the quality of the vocal itself.

These would be my 'areas for improvement'

he does seem to overplay the accent a bit when he's singing, to an Arctic Monkey-esque extent and then some on top - maybe he's got a strong accent, but it sounds a bit forced

he's singing from his throat, not his diaphragm - when he breathes in before a line his stomach should be expanding, not his chest - will give him a lot more power in his voice and stop...

..the fading off notes before the end of lines - 'robbing your audience' as my coach used to call it - listen to particularly the live track and hear the volume on the vocal fade off and die before the line has finished musically

Like the others say, a bit of vocal coaching would probably be a big help, but these are only minor issues - from the following you've got I'm sure he's very entertaining on stage, and as a band you sound very good together.

As a counter-example, a square peg in a round hole, here's me singing with my mate's band (www.myspace.com/planetindigo) on my birthday - took us ages to find a song to do where i didn't sound ridiculous and this was the best we managed...

22-02-2007, 07:48 PM
you beat me to it N1Jimmy,i didnt mean singing lessons.im sure there is a big difference between singing lessons and voice coaching.i just meant that a voice coach could help your guy improve,i didnt mean that he was shite and you should ditch him or anything like that,the guy can obviously sing but a voice coach (like a football coach) would be able to help him improve his skill (if you like).im sure that even the best singers in the world use voice coaches and these days anything that gives you an edge over the competition cant be a bad thing surely.(dont call me shirley).anyhoo good luck (again) and keep posting the tunes.

OMG we recorded our demo again at a proper studio in Leeds called Soundworks last week (25th-27th) and fuck me I can't wait to get my hands on it. Being mixed & mastered at the minute but when I have it... you'll know about it.

So fucking exciting, the producer really helped us nail down a live quality to it, not to mention he's chopping the tracks up a bit to get them to radio air play standard (under 3.40). He has previously produced The Music's debut album, who we also met as they have a practice room there, and recently The Pigeon Detectives, who are about to release their debut although I don't rate them very much.

Anticipation...

Cheers guys, got a little news for you.

We were played on XFM Manchester 97.7FM tonight (!) on Clint Boon's (Inspiral Carpets) Music:Response. It's an unsigned feature, part of XFM Uploaded, played from 7-10pm Mon - Thur. Anyway the jist is, four bands are played though the week and you can go and vote to decide the Band of the Week.

So please go to our XFM page (http://www.xfmuploaded.co.uk/soundclub) & vote for us by clicking on the picture where it says Xfm Featured Artist - Vote Now!. You can also vote as many times as you like ;)

While I'm plugging, we have a page over @ VIRB.com (http://www.virb.com/soundclub) which is basically a MySpace but better looking and generally nicer. If you have one, check us out, if you don't why not?!

Oh yeah and the new EP, re-recorded tracks (10x better) are being uploaded there to night if you want to listen. If you like the old ones.. well, just see for yourself. Thanks

Vote cast and best of luck mate, shame it's doesn't show you how things are progressing vote-wise. Make sure you let us know how you get on!

These things often just turn into a 'who's got the most mates' competition; hopefully the other 4 will have enough to make up for your deficiencies in that area ;)

Update!

If you vote for Sound on the Xfm competition in my signature & post on this thread from here on, I will send you a track of your choice from the new EP. Deal? PM me emails and track choice after posting here, thanks.

Not desperate yet, but we really want to win this, it will help us out big time. We get the hint that Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets) put us on the show on a Monday against weaker bands to give us a head start, but we can't afford one of the bands to outvote us by clicking away all day with a couple of their mates

In other news, we've had a little interview published over @ Leeds Music Scene (http://www.leedsmusicscene.net/). I'm not answering the questions, but it's a good read none the less. If you follow the main link above you can't miss the link to the article :D
