Swänns))) / Potemkjin Village - 6th Rehearsal (17th August, 2010)

Me and Chris had our 6th rehearsal of the band on Friday - we're now called Potemkjin Village, so this will be the last you hear of Swänns))).  I made a Last.fm, but I'm still using the same Swanns bandcamp for now:

This rehearsal we spent the first half hour playing around with bass riffs against the guitar lines, then matching them up to the parts I'd thrown together on the drum machine; all of which was totally undermined by breaking a bass string while tuning up, with no spares - total amatuer. Sounded o.k. in the room despite that, but the tone in the recording is quite thin sounding because of it. The beat patterns need a bit of work but we've got a good idea of the structure now. Need a good intro to set the scene and add some more colour; work out some killer riffs for the ending and get the noising off more structured but overall things are starting to come together now: so that's 'needs a lot of work' then!  We're both agreed that this is the first time our stuff isn't embarassing, at least.

Making progress.

Here's the track for y'all.  If you're this way inclined, the album download on Bandcamp comes with our Potemkjin Village remix of Del Shannon's Runaway.
