Doing some Digging.
So, in an effort to further immerse myself in the type of music I'm wanting to do,I've been listening to a lot of different bands, and reading up on the histories. Two bands I've liked for a long time in the Horror Punk genre are Blitzkid and Mister Monster, and they both had Argyle Goolsby in them. As a bassist, Argyle is a big inspiration to me, so I looked into him.
This man has two different solo bands, and I love that. He has Argyle Goolsby and the Midnight Rovers and Argyle Goolsby and the Hollow Bodies. AG&TMR is an electric band, and AG&THB is an ACOUSTIC band. THAT'S AWESOME.
I Wanna do that at some point.
Right now, I need to focus on this album, and get that rolling right. I decided recently to forgo the cover art stuff for the time being, and work on the music itself for right now. The rest will come later. Gotta stop putting the cart before the horse and whatnot.
I'm also putting off writing lyrics. I know what direction I want to go with the lyrics, but I Don't wanna write them yet.
I've noted the riffs I've been writing are VERY Doo-Wop/50's oriented. I told Bettie(my Partner-in-crime) and Hawk(My former tag team partner as a wrestler) and neither of them were surprised. Bettie flat said "Your bass style is very 50's so now it's translating to your guitar playing. Also, You're getting less pitchy." Evidently, having forayed into rap as long as I did, I lost my singing a bit. I'm rehearsing almost every day and therefore getting better since I started.
I'm debating assembling a setlist of covers and starting performing that to get back into the swing of performing. I can sprinkle a few originals(mostly instrumentals and old Devils' 5 and Plague Doctors material) and play that to get performing again. Just a thought.
