A recording of Fusilado

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010 by Nick

This is a new number which is a cover of a Chumbawumba song from their album The Boy Bands Have Won.

We’ve been experimenting with multitrack overdubbing in Jon’s dining room (the neighbours must be pleased) so here it is:


Live Noise recordings online!

Recorded in a mini-studio-in-a-garage, in June 2007:

Give us your gigs!

We need (and also really want) gigs! Feed us all the gigs you can think of and we’ll be your friends, or at least give you a good professional set. We have a reasonably broad repertoire which we can pick goodies out of to suit many occasions, and we won’t cost you the moon.

blog the second!

Ok, so we’ve finally all managed to get ourselves into the same studio at the same time as each other for a day, along with my sister’s husband Dan, whose studio it is. Incidentally his cousin is the frontman of the splendid Thirteen Senses, who played the Joiners in Southampton not so long ago, and a great gig it was too. Props to Will and the lads! Where was I? Oh yeah, so we managed to get quite a few tracks down in the day we had, and Dan’s just sent me a scratch edit of Simon Diamond and Batman Pyjamas, originally by local legend Johnny Jet, and the signs are good for some decent quality recordings popping up on our OurSpace! Keep ‘em peeled :)

Right, I gots to crash now, cos it’s a school night and all.

Peace, love and harmony

Let’s give this a go!

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007 by toby

Well, I’m completely new to this whole blogging malarkey, but I’m going to give it a go!

I’m Toby, the bass provider from Live Noise, and I don’t claim to speak for the whole band, and I don’t expect I’ll be the only one to post on here, now that I’ve got the ball rolling – at least I hope I’m not!

We, Live Noise, have been a bit quiet, publicly, of late, mainly due to bad organisation on our own part. A couple of nights ago we performed at the Candle Club open mic night, which is where we first played publicly together as Live Noise, and the audience there has always been very appreciative. If you’re a performer of any kind (usually solo, but there have been more than that), and you’re looking for a chance to try out your stuff on an audience, it’s a great place to go – it’s not just musicians either, as they have poets and stand-up comics too. It happens every Monday, and is usually compered by the brilliant Johnny Jet . If you want to know more, have a look at On the first Sunday of every month they have a showcase of the best of the previous month’s acts, and we’ve been invited to take part (3rd time for us, I think) on Sunday April 1st. Come along if you can!

In the slightly longer term, we’re trying to find a time when the band can come together to do a day’s recording session, in a garage kindly provided by a good friend of ours, as we’d like to have some better quality recordings than the ones you can currently hear on our page.

I’d just like to sign off by directing people to the page of Origin – Rupert’s brother-in-law is their lead guitarist, and he and I were lucky enough to be at their first ever gig a few weeks ago, which was a real cracker! They’ve got through to the Top 30 acts of the O2 undiscovered competition, so please vote for them by following the link from their page.

That’s all from me for now.

Let me know your comments – should I or the rest of the band continue the blog? Or should we shut up and leave it to someone who’s better at it?
