    @ videocrime - Nothing more than the fact that I dress in Gothic Lolita fashion every day.
    (Also, Lolitas seem to dig my stuff.)

    I'm currently making noises solo as Court of Hidden Faces. Using pretty much anything that makes a sound including guitar, homemade electronics, and field recording to make some Constellation Records influenced ambient/drone... Older guitar-based stuff free from here.

    I released a CD near the end of last year as one half of Monsters Build Mean Robots and our line-up has expanded ever since until we were able to start playing live in December. We're at a point between post-rock (for want of a better term) and electronica.

    Just posted a new track on MySpace... "Balinese Ghost Cats". More mutated gamelan loops and some prepared guitar.

    One of my band's tracks ( Let Our Enemies Beware) is opening BBC Northern Ireland's "Electric Mainline" Show tonight at 7:30pm GMT! Here. I'm, to use the american vernacular, stoked.

    And after all the crying and wailing and the cursing of various gods at open mic night thread...

    ...The shame is I can't listen to it. Speakers broke and it's in another country. SWEET IRONY!

    @Brent Wilcox: Is your prepared guitar done similar to prepared piano by attaching items in the strings, or is there more modification?
    • CommentTimeJan 23rd 2008
    I play guitar mostly, not in a band at the moment, a bit too busy doing an MA I think, but I'd like to start one.

    I've been trying to get some tracks I've written recorded and put up on myspace or something. It's along similar lines to Enslaved, Opeth, Neurosis, Mastodon, Meshuggah, Satyricon, kind of thing.

    I'm a London based musician and I am a (in ascending order of competance) acoustic guitarist, bassist, vocalist and cellist. I'm in the early stages of planning and recording my own compositions for distribution online, but still really miss playing live.

    I spent five years gigging around London as 1/5th of the (now defunct) post-rock outfit Nun Of The Above playing cello and glockenspiel. I think the 2005 album "NUN" is still around for purchase at the Wupadupa shop.

    (Q: is it still a shameless plug if the band is no longer together and you don't actually get any money from the sales?)

    Hi guys.

    I'm Amiel / robot9000 / r9k. Snippets of raw unmixed stupidity lie here:
    robot9000 myspace

    Listless atmospheric beats in the stylistics of DJ Shadow, MF Doom, Prefuse 73, Muggs. Experimental instrumental hiphop. Insert fancy way of saying one dude in his room somewhere in Maryland cutting and pasting samples together here.

    Working on a account but I need to re-encode stuff. The myspace will have a lot of unmixed, rawer tracks before I screw with them, the will have the nicer sounding stuff ( at least that's the initial plan ).

    @Brent Wilcox: Is your prepared guitar done similar to prepared piano by attaching items in the strings, or is there more modification?

    Similar to prepared piano - hugely influenced by Fred Frith and Hans Reichel.

    I think that the guitar parts that wound up in the "Balinese Ghost Cats" track (the guitar was recorded years ago)- I had a screwdriver woven through the strings somewhere up the fretboard, and I was hammering/sliding a metal tube up and down the strings between that and the pickups... with a volume pedal and a maybe a cheap chorus effect box.

    May as well post a link to my stuff.

    It's not exactly pushing the boundaries, and I don't know what genre you'd classify it as. I don't really listen to this electronicy/keyboardy stuff much, I'm more into punk, but this is what comes out of my fingers.

    Just noticed this thread.

    My band is called Verbatim:

    We've been around forever, but got serious in the last year.

    Basic rock sound. Biggest influence is The Replacements.

    We did a 72-hour record this past weekend:

    We were on one of Warren's mixes once, which was awesome.

    We've got a big ass full-length album coming this year. Should be great. Hoping I can sell it to a label for some distribution/marketing muscle.

    Looking forward to catching up on all this, thanks.

    Posted some "new" tracks on MySpace. To me, they're golden oldies, but unless you're one of the few people with a copy of Executive Lullabies from 1988, they're new. Three are from that LP, another new post is a surprisingly coherent piece of guitar noise.

    Been involved with several failed bands. Like everyone, I play guitar, bass and piano/keys. I was in a band up till a month ago when someone very close to me died. We were about to record. It was avant-garde-ish metal. Told them to go on without me.

    However, my friends/contemporaries have been far more successful with their music ventures:

    Bang! Bang! Eche!

    The more I look at the list of goth/punk/metal performers (and bear in mind, I like such music just fine), the more I realize I'm an oddball, since I'm getting ready to spend birthday money on a baritone ukulele. :)
