Where to start?

Good question. I wanted to throw up a video in the proper sound of arguably my best known piece of music amongst friends and family. Unfortunately "THIS TOOL" is blaming "THE TOOL" he used to edit the sound in the video, so instead of glorious surround stereo sound, we are stuck with old school mono sound. I hope this takes nothing away from the listeners experience as it's a piece I'm rather proud of.

"Hangin' On The Line."
I was heavily inspired by the "MUTT LANGE" sound at the time (See Def Leppard / Bryan Adams late 80's to early 90's) and decided the song was fun and catchy and slightly kitsch so why not give it the full stadium pop metal treatment. My equipment is a Zoom R8 run through a soundbar with sub-woofer run back into the laptop. I DO NOT use pro tools, nor will I ever. I don't believe in them, but more power to those who do. Weapons of choice were my trusty Fender Squire run through a BSM Treble Booster (Now retired for the Boss Feedbacker Booster) into my Vox ADVT 30. The Bass was a standard but solid Cort and the drums were a mixture of me playing an Alesis electronic drumkit and employing the built in drum kit on the Zoom R8. Enjoy and thanks for listening.

  1. Fantastic song my man. Needless to say I will be plugging you on Facebook, the blog and Twitter, so a fair few people will hopefully be calling to your blog. In my experience, however, wordpress is better for interaction. You'll get more comments over there and reach a larger audience...but it's really cumbersome to post anything.
