    with a roll call of the members...




    "SOUNDCHECK with the Hypnotic Eye"






    Raw dark dungeon rock sound, I graded the image [image processing]
    to match it.I created an underexposed old 16mm film style look....

    Do-it-yourself fest is the best, Alastair. That reminded me of early Can and Neu, which is big praise indeed. Love it!

    I put together a history of Punk Rock. The idea is eventually for my band WRANK to do this live. You may disagree with the choices. If so, do yer bloody own.

    Clicky for a history of Punk Rock.

    I did a live improvised set of music recently and recorded it

    I think it's a lovely thing to do with 40 minutes

    More Hypnotic eye stuff!

    THEY JUST GOT INTERVIEWED...WHICH IS NICE....

    Extracted from the gig video, The Hypnotic Eye's version of The Human Expression's
    "reading your Will" but a different audio mix, much harsher.
    Watch your ears and speakers!


    The Hypnotic Eye - "Reading Your Will"(live)





    As for the Hypnotic Eye outro video I just couldn't leave this one alone!

    The outro was a nightmare to get some kind of half descent audio mix
    out of the recording .Because the sound came from the speakers,
    which reverberated off the walls, mixed with the chattering of the people,
    and electric guitars dominate such a wide frequency spectrum they drown
    even Grace Lightman's unusually sharp cutting vocal style.

    So frequency cutting, paramatic eqs,multiband compression and all sorts are used
    on this audio mulch of a mess.

    Hypnotic eye Outro (Version 1)above in the thread is more subby, if you are
    listening on speakers, more low end.

    Hypnotic eye Outro Version 2 I decided to go the other way,
    and instead of cleaning it up, put the dirt back in make it harsher, distorted,
    louder, much more like it sounded at the time
    ,
    an impressionist take on what it sounded like in my head.

    I have a third version video on my flickr account where I put the
    low end back in, and kept the loudness.a halfway version between
    versions 1 and 2.


    "The Hypnotic Eye Outro (version 2)"




    They are unsigned, but have independently released a single called " Marianne "

    Marianne single: on vinyl

    Marianne single: on itunes

    I haven't met such a well organized band for a loooong time.I hope they win on all fronts,
    and they being unsigned means some A&R man is not doing their job for such a photogenic
    self contained, self packaged band.
