Sad 😔 news regarding Woofer3 (John Jenkins) 21 days ago
It's very sad news. John was a fantastic songwriter and musician. It's been a privilege and an honour to listen to his songs and make some collaborations many years ago. I agree with jkane, his music lives on, thanks to Icomp...

FREE Richard Ringer Album 9 years ago
Downloaded and listened a few times since yesterday.

First, THANK YOU for giving your talent away like that....hehe

Then, i must say that record has many charms. The sound is round and alternative, not too folky...Perfect. Your voice and your lyrics are even more impressive. Love the way you treat your vocals here...a very nice and effective effect.

Guest players are totally in the mood (hi James Trumpa Calore !).

My favs are "The Lusional" and "Morine"..but every song deserve a round of applause.

Bravo Rich, all the best...you're one of a kind...

I went to see Siouxsie and the Banshees once in 1983. Sound, performance, mood was so crappy i left 20 minutes later. No regrets...I also went to a Prince gig in Paris where he played like 20 minutes and then he left. The audience had no regrets too...me included.

Never happened to me since then (but i must say i never been to a Queen's gig in a stadium or stuff like that (Abba?)...hehehehe).

Sounds you hate... but still you use! 10 years ago
Very interesting topic, Hern...

I feel pretty much the same as Barretok. Except that i love the sound of real accordions, real banjos or ukuleles...I hate synth sounds. Midi brass sounds. And i have to distort/filter/reverb a lot the organ sounds i want to use. Everything is so clean in this computer world.

Pete...for the hands clapping, to get a full audience effect, you have to record/add more than 20 or 30 tracks...but still doesnt sound like a bunch of people clappin....Boring.

I remember hating those guitar heroes...long long soloing...and i still do ! hahaha !
