Well, that show was on the day that his death was announced to the media last summer. So at the time we had just noticed, but so did everyone else.

Our next show is this Friday, and then we have another the Friday after that. Also, we once compiled a list of all the songs we'd either recorded or played before, including covers, and I think it was over 100 songs long. If you want to know set lists though, I might be able to remember a few. Like last Friday, for example was:

Little Man with a Gun In His Hand (Minutemen cover)
Ruminations in Bus Stations (Japanese Karaoke)
Can You Hear Me Dr. Kirkwood?
Little Grey Spot
Waiting to Die
Cornporn
Gay Song/Love Will Tear Us Apart/Pidgin
Muffin Man

In sort of that order, and also I probably forgot a few. And yeah, everything on the front page is everything we've recorded, excluding the tape which I still don't have a digital copy of.

Edit: got a couple pictures from the last show. I dressed up.

I love how apparently you've been thinking that I'm Parker this whole time. I'm the one in the tie.

Oh, right. Yeah, if I'm wearing shorts, I'm probably wearing flip flops, which means I'm probably barefoot when we play because I think flip flops are distracting what with their not being securely fastened to my foot. But hey, thanks.

So hey, it's been a while and I should probably update this. First though, I feel like I should provide you with the incredible free download of the Cathedral, our 20 minute tape thing we did with Tam Tam. Download and listen and worship and critique and then worship some more because it turns out that there was nothing to critique because it was perfect.

Well, I listened, now I'll critique.

Firstly, I liked it, the story was decent, and the instrument playing was, as CS promised, perfect.
The music was, to my ears, very Beatles/Pink Floyd esque in many places, with lots of variation, some psychedelic sections, and ,of course, the obligatory guitar solos, which were also very good.

The voice acting on the album is not great, with some dodgy lines, but as this is a musical album, not a play, it doesn't really matter, though some of the noises the actor(s?) make are rather funny.

The songs are very well written, however the singing has not got a huge range, though that sounds, to me at least, more as if the singer is being cautious rather than unable to reach particularly high or low notes, it does, however, mean that the songs are delivered in somewhat a monotone, though it is not really unpleasant to listen to.

Overall I give 'The Cathedral' 76%, due to the brilliantly written songs and instrumentals, let down a bit by the actual singing.

Hope I didn't just offend your entire band, CS. I said it was good!

Also: You have an awesome band name!
Also also: I noticed he guitar on your special rank is a lefty! Double awesome!

Yeah, except I'm not a lefty.

Also, thanks for your honesty. The singing is actually done by two people: me on Waiting to Die and harmony on Wayward Bus (and actually the bird screeches if that counts as singing), and our banjo player on Can't Find My Way Home (actually a Blind Faith cover) and melody on Wayward Bus. Neither of us are trained singers so we don't sound amazing, although we can both find a pitch pretty well so it tends to work out all right. Can you give me an example of the range thing though? I think I might know what you mean but I'm not totally sure. If it's that we don't go very high, neither of us have high voices and I'm pretty sure the vocal parts usually cover at least an octave (excluding the chanting at the beginning). The one thing I really hate about something I sang was the "No more feeling in my heart or my brain" line in Waiting to Die, because I hadn't actually solidified the melody yet when I recorded it and wasn't sure what to do there when I got to it but went with the take anyway. I've never sung it like that since, so hearing it always sucks because it's not very good.

Also, we had pretty much the whole band doing voices, although the guy you're probably thinking of is our baritone player who did all of Staff Sgt. Jenson's lines. Yeah, a lot of that dialogue was supposed to be kind of stupid. Sorry. Also he has a way of making stupid things sound even stupider, which is a pretty great gift actually.

Also, there was only one guitar solo on the whole album and that was an acoustic one in Can't Find My Way Home that I think started out all right but becomes confused about halfway through.

Also, it's interesting that you'd compare us to the Beatles and Pink Floyd, because I don't really see that at all. Maybe Pink Floyd in the Sleep Song, but I can't hear the Beatles in this like at all.

But I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for reviewing!

Studebaker Hawk now has a Christmas album available for free download. It's called Studachristmas Wonderhawk Dead Sun Danceathon, and it's everything you wish could just be left out of the holiday season. But in a good way! I think?

Anyway, get it here: http://studebakerhawk.bandcamp.com/albu ... danceathon

Or go to our bandcamp page and look at all our other wares here: http://studebakerhawk.bandcamp.com
