So I thought I would start a thread where we can post some old music stuff we did… Live performances, recordings, maybe videos/photos… If you have 'em, post 'em… I’ll start…
I came across this recently: Here’s a live recording of my old band “The Engine Room”, doing a Fuel Cover “Sunburn” from roughly 20 years ago. I’m playing lead on this, and I quite like how the solo came out that particular night.
The recording is no great shakes, as it was just an afterthought - Recorded at the mixing desk, just picking up the FOH with a stereo pair of Tandy brand mics running into a Roland VS-840EX 4 track, if I recall correctly. It’s a bit shrill and lacking in bass, but it gives the general idea of the performance:
Our vocalist was really LOUD, so his level is really up there on the clip. His pitch is a bit ropey here too, although that is more a symptom of poor monitoring on the night than a reflection of his abilities.
…and a couple of live action shots frrom around the same period:
