In anticipation of this Saturday’s Alejandro & the Fame show at the Midway Cafe in JP, we put together another quick demo of one of our songs. So, sorry, this isn’t a new Lady Gaga song, but rather a better version of an already existing Lady Gaga song, done by us.
This isn’t the final mix or master, but it’s a good idea of how we rock (and if you really feel like bringing the mosh and punching someone in the face, fast forward about 3 minutes for the breakdown ’cause it’s awesome)
Scene: 8pm, Saturday night. Meeting up with the fine folks at Vagabond Theatre Group (who produced True Believers) at a bar later in the evening. I finally open up the tube preamp that I bought to accompany my the new recording mics that I received for Christmas. Instead of just setting it up in my recording studio, I decide to, you know, actually try it out.

Anyway, for your laughing/listening pleasure, here they are:

We’ve been working on these for about a month between recording, mixing, and mastering, but I’m finally satisfied with the results — and I hope you are as well! All instruments were recorded/engineered by my, except for the lead vocals which were done by Paul Cantillon (aka “Cody Grey“). We’ll be sending these out to some clubs as we try to book some more shows, so keep an eye out for our updated events list. In the meantime, enjoy, and tell your friends to do the same.
