Ask Frost* / Re: New drummer = new gigs 2009????
« on: February 08, 2009, 10:01:39 PM »
I'd reckon as Alex is primarily being brought in to perform the live duties that Andy's new job means he unable to do (at least that's what the original posts/reasons were.....) would defo mean some gigs at some point I know April was originally mooted, but I guess this has shifted back due to the line up change!! :?

Congratulations and choccy hobnob for anyone that's still with me!!!

I use Imtoo DVD Audio Ripper - a quick scoot and you should be able to find it. Pretty easy and good results too.

They totally rocked at Wolves too!!!!

An ENORMOUS sound for only 3 guys - but then they always have had. Pleasantly surprised at the turnout too - pretty well supported gig by the punters, although having heard a few different 'regional' accents I reckon anyone north of Wolverhampton came to the show ;)

Anyone from these parts going to Wolvo 2moro evening to see the boys???

I'll be there, possibly sporting a Frost* t-shirt (if I can find one that's reasonably clean!!!) Might see you there

Ask Frost* / Re: Jem, Where did you get the Artwork/cases printed?

Apologies - I've just re-read the original message and it does make reference to the Tour CD, which as Pedro quite rightly points out were more of a self produced affair. Vit P is defo the man on this one I'd have said, unless Jem has 'contacts' via the day job (Although even then presumably Mr P would've supplied them with artwork??)

Vitamin P did the artwork and layouts, I would guess that InsideOut would've sourced the manufacturing side (although I may be wrong)

I think much of the debate comes down to 'what the audience wants' - let's face it the artist who originally composed/wrote a song will be given a bit of leeway by their audience to experiment with songs and arrangements, but I recall going to see Van Morrison a few years back at the NIA in Brum and him doing a brilliant jazz set(well I thought it was good), but none of his 'hits'. The next day the local radio stations were chock full of calls from angry listeners who wanted to see him play Moondance et al.

I also beleive that the opportunity to do different things with songs live is what sets the 'artist' apart from tribute bands - many tribute bands will perform note for note renditions of the cd's you know but would be frowned upon for messing with the songs too much, unless it was in the 'spirit' of what the artist themselves would do.

Gear Corner / Re: My son's band need a PA...

Behringer gear is  great for the money - I've got a 10 channel mixer which I've used as a sub mixer for both acoustic and electric drums with no problems (yet). Also got some of their vocal mics which perform admirably.
Speaker wise Peavey Hisys/Eurosys take some beating.

As for what to mic up - we've just done the same thing with my latest band. Trial and error is the best way, but we ended up with bass drum and snare, more for clarity than volume and vocals - everything else was run off backline. The key thing to remember is that it shouldn't be a 'who can be the loudest' competition on stage (not easy depending on the age of the band members), so a trusted, independent set of ears could be called for. And they should also remember that if you can't hear someone, that doesn't necessarily mean that person needs to turn it up - sometimes everyone turning down works much better.

And they can still rock!!!! :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

Frost* / Biggest Disappointment with EIMA...............
« on: November 30, 2008, 05:09:27 PM »
No I'm not going to moan about the mix (which sounds fine to me) but rather the lack of one of the 'developmental' songs.

Having watched the DVD I want to know what happened to the Skiing song??? It was a bona fide crossover 'hit' and I'm gutted it didn't make the album................

(Or has Jem sold it to Simon Cowell foir the X Factor winner???) ;)  ;)  :P

I have to admit that the first couple of listens I wasn't sure whther the album lived up to my expectations, but it is a real grower. Put the time into listening to it and you will be rewarded. :D  :D

BTW It's now my album of the year :D  :D (well joint top with It Bites)

Craig is an awesome shout - I came up with the name in a conversation earlier today on the subject and think he'd be great, not only on a drumming level but he also has the right sense of humour that must surely be a prerequisite of being around Frost*

Real shame.
I was fortunate enough to be able to study with TBE and he really is different class - both as a drummer and a thoroughly nice bloke.

TBE - hope to see you 'out there' mate

Jem , JJ,JM & Dec - onwards and upwards boys, the new album is fan-bloody-tastic and deserve a good few live airings (with at least one somewhere in the vacinity on the lovely midlands) ;)

Other Bands / Re: RUSH - Snakes & Arrows Live DVD
« on: November 13, 2008, 12:32:29 PM »
Love Rush!!!!!

I also like the way that they are still able to laugh at themselves and find little ways to keep the interest going for both them and the audience(the little pre gig/intro films). I too was only a few rows back from the stage at the NEC/LG on the S&A tour and it was brilliant. Have had the DVD on pre order for ages!!!!! Only problem is I'll hopefully already have the EIMA DVD by then so I may have to not watch that for a day or two when S&A arrives!!! :D  :D  :D
