"We tune DOWN to A#"? Guess I still have more to learn. And I'm not sure A# would sound doom sludge folk metal death black psych progressive funeral angular thrashy enough.
So they want slow... or fast... long... or short... simple.... or complex.... Are they firm on Doom.... or Black... or Prog Metal or is there some wiggle room there?
Hunh? I'm sure they will attract exactly who they need.
This is pretty funny. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for your indulgence,
I see no mention of BRIDGES there - I gather that this is not Portland Oregon yer talkin' about...
They left out the strip clubs too.
"Doom Sludge Folk Metal Death Black Psych Progressive Funeral Angular Thrash."
"Release and record for Cassette Tapes/ Vinyl Records"
Because.....we don't want the majority of possible fans to hear, let alone enjoy our music on CD, MP3 or download.
It's great to know there are a few bands keeping the 80's analog technology alive....but unless they actually record on tape rather than the digital ProTools or Logic Pro/GarageBand, what's the point.
Playing to four fans in your mom's basement doesn't count as a tour.
Nothing about that ad implies they are interested in "the majority of possible fans".
They have a niche/scene they enjoy, and perhaps lots of people in that scene like cassettes and records, and you are not a part of that niche/scene so you don't know. All kinds of folks out there, huh?
I own plenty of vinyl records that were recorded in the ProTools era, and I find "the point" is to enjoy the music. Somehow I manage.
Maybe they play in multiple garages/basements.
I know, right?
I agree. I'll go out on a limb and say that most, if not all, people that are into the genres mentioned have at least one or the other. Vinyl is big again, and tape makes a comeback too (I gotta know, my band has a tape release out, but admittedly more as a gimmick)
Since the band in question has a Youtube channel, it wouldn't be farfetched to assume they also have a bandcamp account (which is also par for the course in those genres)
Except for the odd folk mention, I think the ad is pretty decent. But rehearsal twice a week? Man.
They tune to A# on WHICH STRING??!
I might be interested, but... does Buddy Holly/Gene Vincent fit in there anywhere? I mean, they are both dead....
I can only play Funeral Polka..
In my Doom Folk band I tune all of my strings to A#. I might have a shot at this....
Doom folk? That's like "Tom Dooley", right?
No, Tom Dooley was "doomed" folk. Totally different thing.
I tune half of them to A# and the other half to Bb - every other string.
