Iceland - are you OK?


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Another shameless example of what happens when three grown men go into a rehearsal space with nothing to lose, nothing to gain, and nothing planned.
Recorded with a Zoom H2. No dubs.

Steve DiB - drums
LSD25 - bass
Bud - guitar and Air FX

We were at Ultrasound on 30th street
just up from the Molly Wee. That laser sound is the Air FX - aka Air Synth. No post tricks or effects - we sound this awful all on our own.

Better sound is needed but I think I heard the bass player kick over your beer. LOL This is what I miss about live playing. You guys are having fun.

Thanks Shay
Just realized it's not as loud as it should be - but that's probably OK by most folks. That darn iTunes. Thanks for stopping by.

We have a show coming up in a month
and seem to spend more time working on spontaneous combustion than songs. We'll see what happens when it's time to face the public. Iceland appears to have it together.

everytime
you post these sonic treats from AP7 rehearsals I say "must buy zoom H2" then I space. Well I would think you guys now have an incredible vibe for a new track. Better still you are capturing that raw energy that comes from playing off others.

I hope Ein and all the other Icelander's are doing OK.

This actually my second Zoom. Unfortunately my other one got stolen from a studio
I lost it on a chair in the hall. That night I ordered another. Can't let them get you down.
Thanks for the kind support.

hell and yes
"I'm cool. Just blowing off some steam" - Iceland

It gets real nice at about 3:05 plus. Driving, pocket jam. But it stops for me at 3:53. Twice now. It's like someone tore the last 2 pages out of a really wild short story.

Yeah - I hear you -
consistency is something we have to work on. We also tend to push outside the groove to see how elastic it is - that's when it starts to fall apart.

Apologies
I didn't mean your playing stopped sounded good... I meant the music player on MacJams wouldn't load the song past 3:53... and still won't now. Trust me, you guys sound killer right after that 3 minute mark and then the song stops loading so I'm left to wonder what kind of gems I'm missing out on. Sorry that I articulate so poorly. Good lord I sounded like a prick now that I read it in that context :)

airportseven said 2530 days ago (April 20th, 2010)
No apologies necessary - lol
I figured you came out and said what others hold back. Didn't check the time to see if I agreed - but in our case it can fall apart at just about any time. Seems to be loading OK now.

sounds like fun was had! thanks for sharing it.

The Air FX is a great toy for
a guitarist who wants to mix it up a little. I've actually played it with the headstock while playing the guitar.

tempie said 2531 days ago (April 19th, 2010)
we're all just waiting to become ash
might as well jam. i wish i could open my garage and find you guys in there.

so there's a horse game (stay with me) where two riders try to hold a string between them while they navigate a series of obstacles. you can't let go of the string or break it. that's what these jams of yours remind me of, you guys going your separate ways and trying not to break the string.

Love the analogy
it feels like that most of the time. We're three restless players of limited skill but lots of enthusiasm. We don't go to the gym - we go to
the studio.

Sounds like a satisfying jam, and it's got just the right intensity to psych me up for a post-lunch work meeting... What's that Theremin sound--is that the AirFX? Anyway, makes me miss playing with other humans!
Check out my latest song called Till the Tap Runs Dry (album version)
airportseven said 2530 days ago (April 20th, 2010)
Yeah - that thing is the Air FX
it's burbling towards the beginning and doing the theremin thing at the end. My wife got it for me for Christmas a few years back. Bets toy under the tree.

Don't get jealous - get even
there have to be people in your area who would love to play with you. Go blind in the local papers or stop by any rehearsal space and check the boards - if there's one near you. People are always looking for others to play with.

Air FX - fitting for all those ash clouds!
You sure got this one out quickly. Oh, wait, you could have used ANY title -- you are without shame. So you get points for that. As well as for the "nothing planned" admission. As far as teh music goes, it's just good, clean-dirty garage fun, for which, again, I applaud you. This is the first I've heard of the Air FX... have to go YouTube it.... oh, right.. I've seen that. Crazy! Interesting input fx at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZF9o424t5o
