PRE PLASTIC SURGERY VERSION (SELF)

Is that you
or me
the face in the mirror
if i have a little trouble
i'll look a little clearer
at the lines
and creases
i'll reverse engineer
every single detail in your face

is that you
the pre plastic surgery version
or is that me
well i've had a little trouble
and i'm crawling from the wreckage

have we met before
if we have
i can't remember
could have been last december
when i was out of sorts
too many cuts and bruises
they all have healed
you say you've healed
and feel revealed

is that you
the pre plastic surgery version
or is that me
well i've had a little car crash
and i'm crawling from the wreckage..........

thx,
thx, i've been working on it for days it seems, i am working on how i record the drums better, and since i recorded theses 2 months ago in a hurry it took some work to bring them out. i think there is still some work, but as a whole it is close, i'm trying hard

Cool garage rock sound. It has a Weezer during a lo-fi moment that rocks. I'd like the vocal to be a bit more out front during the verse. Nice mix particularly during the chorus.

ah weezer
never heard that one before, but that a good one. yep they are in the mix, i am trying to get at times that ric okasik sound, this song has a force that is difficult to grasp, so i'm falling back to the butch vig approach, double it, make it big.

Mr Zero
Nice one man. Killer song writing man. I really dig the chorus. Very cool vox!
Nice slidy guit part at about 2:40 or so. Nice effect.
I still want to play in your band man!

slidy gits.....
i did do quite a bit of work on those screaming git tracks in the midde. thx for noticing, i didn't want them to sound run of the mill, i wanted something akin to tom morello of rage against the machine or something like it, for unusual sound, you live in new york?

No
I live in Salt Lake. That would be one hell of a commute!

I go to NYC sometimes. Do you have a band that plays live?

Cool song. Like the contrast between the fuzzy guitar in the middle and the cleaner sound up top. Vocals sound good. Interesting sound choices and good production

i have a new mix
the vox were tough as well, as i have since juiced them a bit throwing a little chorus on the second voice to make it wobble just a tad, this is all being done on our little garageband so as to encourage my students to learn it and steal my tips, so glad you notice a quality at all, cheers

Great rocker
Could be an anthem with huge singalong appeal.
Very catchy.
Top writing, top rocking!
davezero said 2682 days ago (October 20th, 2010)
anthem....
well lets hope so and i can say a ran it up the flagpole here at MJ first. thats what i am trying to do write our way out of these doldrums we are passing through at the moment, you see the car crash could be what our country is at the moment crawling ever so slowly out of. could be, i dunno.........thx

great indie rock tune. not hearing Weezer, but hooks galore (and a sad story to boot). great track, like the lo-fi feel.

i listen to weezer....
it is not my overall goal but it may be that i just need to accept that i make lo-fi rock out. i'm trying to make the best i can and its tough to get out of the garage sound, i'll keep working on it, or maybe i'll just
accept it and turn it up. thx for coming by, yer pretty dang good yourself

thx mark
in trying to keep it lean and tough, i think we did ok at keeping it tight, i am inserting a bit more git work at the end, just to have a flourish, thx for stopping by
