Swänns))) - 5th Rehearsal (26th July, 2010)
It's been a long time since we had a practice/jam with the band and you'll notice we've gone from 3rd to 5th rehearsal - what happened to the 4th? We asked ourselves the same question, it was fucking terrible, a total write-off so there as absolutely nothing to show for that one. Even so, it's been nearly two months since the last one, but we've been rethinking our approach, practicing solo, coming up with ideas and finally, last week, we got the chance to put them together. So here from my transparent band project in which we post a piece from each practice (so long as it’s not total shit!), is a track from our 5th rehearsal session.
In this rehearsal we pretty much played The Song over and over again jamming over a few ideas for bass riffs, developing the structure. I think we’re getting there with it. The version I’ve uploaded is the last time we played it before our session ended; although it isn’t the tightest or hardest we played it, it does have the most developed structure and developed narrative, which is the version I think this transparent band idea calls for.
We’re also planning on changing the name, or have already changed it, one of the two. I haven’t updated Last.fm or Bandcamp or anything on that one though, so it’s still Swänns))) everywhere but soon it will become POTEMKIN VILLAGE.
Here’s the track:
