    Well[,] as some know had a band called [The Foxy Grandpas]. I was looking for a different name, [which] I found [thanks] to talkbass ...



    Its not [] really what was playing [before, as] all my new stuff sounds different[.] [T]he lyrics are somewhat different [in that] they are serious. [Some of them] ad[d]ress the same things[.] The m[usi]c itself is better.

    The vocals []are [- hmm -] well [...] barbershop [melodies], powerchords and fingerpicking, acoustic guitars once and a while, modulated guitars, basic overdriven [M]arshalls, jazz[-like] bass lines, =D , technical drumming. [That is] the sound of Paradox.

    I kinda figured [that] I don[']t want people to say my music is "punk or emo" or whatever those kids are listening to today. It[']s just rock n roll with alot of jazzy roots to it.

    I[']ve been in the studio lately. [T]hat[']s why haven't been on [T]alkbass. [I have] recorded 5 songs so far. t sounds polished! [I']m using a different recorder [and] equipment, [d]escent mics with pop filters for vocals [- I']m laying down the vocals beginning in January.

    The first album will be released sometime around late [M]ay. t will be called "[A]nother [W]ay to [P]romote diots."

    f you read all of this[,] then thank you very much[.]

    Everything in blue was edited by Jazzbo. Sorry Nick, all the typos were making it hard to read, hopefully this is better! :) Good luck with the band and the recording!)

    T'aint nothing original no more. "There's nothing new under the sun", and all that. None of those bands seemed particularly big anyways, so you do whatchoo gotta do. You already made the website anyway.

    I really think you should call yourself "Screaming Anus"... why? Because It's Brilliant...

    There is more than one Incubus.

    "Pair of Ducks" sounds way better than Paradox.

    wow.. terry.. take some riddlin bro.. hehe just jokin..
    yeah man I actually got that from your thread.. hehe i read it and thought it sounded really really cool!.. so i was like.. ahhh paradox.. you or someone said a paradox is something thats difficult or impossible to figure out..
    There is sooooooo much labeling nowadays on whats "punk" or "emo" or "hardcore ska"... It kinda sucks.
    Paradox isn't really any of that. Its rock n roll. And its gonna be hard or impossible for someone to figure out what kind of music Paradox is.

    I mean im doing weird stuff with this. Really Experamental. Its not the greatest or the most coolest but it makes me happy!

    Jazzbo, Im sorry i cant spell =/ thank you so much for doing that. Im sorry you had too though. Ill try to be much careful next time.
  12. Heeehee! I take Adorol. :D
