I’m very excited to be part of this line-up! Amazing bands! June 28th in Durham! Come join the fun!!!
This is another quite weird demo and completely different from anything I’ve ever done. It’s called I Want To Taste Your <3 Beat and I don’t know what it is supposed to really. The music was done on the Nanoloop app for the iPhone, with the vocals just straight into the built-in microphone on my laptop. A whole bunch a tacky echo-ey Garageband effects have been added. I’m all about tacky Garageband effects!
The basic recording was actually done back in February and it was (still maybe is) originally intended to be a duet of some sort. But, we’ll see. Let’s call it a work in progress.
There are all sorts of timing issues here and I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing with my voice…
I might re-record this properly one day, cause I quite like it. I think the lyrics have changed these days as well.
So, I thought I would put up two songs that I have had lying around and that I don’t really don’t know what to do with.
This one is called Fall So Hard. It was written as a guitar song…and was/is intended to be played alot faster….but here it’s all sloooow. I just needed to record it to remember the melody before I forgot it, and it was easier to get the laptop microphone to pick up the sound of the keyboard than the unplugged electric guitar. So this is just a live take of vocals and keyboard straight into the built-in microphone on my laptop. And a bit of reverb…of course :)
If I ever do anything with it in the future, I imagine it will be played very differently.
We have real flyers for my album! Like actual real ones, printed on fancy-pants paper and everything! That means it’s on its way. I hope. Look out for them at events near you!
Last night we had a band practise with an as of yet unnamed potential band. It’s four of us, two boys and two girls, and I guess the aim is to play some sort of punky thing. Since this was the first time we played together and we didn’t have any of our own material yet, we just played Fulhäst songs and Out Of Luck by Pointed Sticks.
It’s a bit strange playing songs that were intended for one person (me) together with other people. The songs don’t feel as personal. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially when it comes to the songs on the new record, which are extremely personal.
I guess I always wanted Fulhäst to be a “real band” at some point, but then when I wrote this new record it just felt wrong to have any other people involved.
Kajsa and Mads last night
So, who knows? If this new thing actually becomes a real thing, then maybe this Fulhäst thing will become a totally different thing. I’ll have to think of a way to keep the two separate.
I haven’t actually being in a band for ten years, so this is exciting. Moustache wasn’t a band. Two people is not a band. Four people, though! Definitely a band.
This is happening on Thursday in Hackney!! Ace photography exhibition/private view from 7pm at the Hackney Picture House followed by an awesometastic after party with live music from Giant Burger and Fulhäst from 9pm at The Dog Shop!

THIS IS HAPPENING NEXT SATURDAY!
This is exciting! The Carry On Rioting LPs have arrived in Brighton! I have a song on there! And it’s green! The record, not the song. Eeeeee! [does a little happy dance]
So, I recorded a demo of another song today. Of course it’s another rush job…it’s just that it’s quite nice to just get them out of your system. I’ve been sitting on the lyrics for this one for a long time, probably since October anyway. Basically, when I moved house back in October I found a box of old floppy disks. They weren’t labelled, so I have no idea what was on them. But, I couldn’t really bring myself to throw them out. What if there was something really important on there, something that would just make everything seem ok? What if THE solution is on one of those floppy disks?
The drums this time is done on the DM1 drum machine app for the iphone.
