You Had Us Beat
c. ’12 The Friday Project and Dino, Sr.

There you stand lookin’ at the things you
used to have
There you stand at the end of your old street
You had it all, right there in your hand
You had it all so sweet
You had us beat

There you sit with a bad look on yer face
There you sit lookin’ like you lost the race
You had it all, right there in your hand
You had it all so sweet
You had us beat

There you lay at the bottom of the heap
There you lay, the price to pay too steep
You had it all, right there in your hand
You had it all so sweet
You had us beat

re “My Synesthesia”

In answer to some questions:

The drums are actually put together from some loops I made, recorded a cuppla months ago.  A particular problem was the ringing of the snare, what I gated best I could.  The overheads were small diaphragm condensers (Studio Project C5’s) and the snare a Beta 58, but I think the problem was krister’s new snare drum, what wasn’t properly tuned.  I actually spent about 2 hours building that drum track, then hadda re-do it in the 3rd hour to further address that ringing, and it still sounds “garagey”.

That middle-end vocal effect was done by taking three tracks of “aaaH’ and pitch-bending ’em down at the end.  I then cloned those three tracks, delayed ’em a quarter second and panned ’em opposite and brought ’em up under with a cathedral reverb on just the clones (the original 3 have their original effects; slap-back in the middle, plates on the sides). The very end vocal was just run thru a cuppla distortion patches.

Bass: BadRicky-The Brick-dbx160XT = Groove Tubes “The Brick” pre into a dbx compressor

LdVoc: MD421II-1589B-1176 = Sennheiser MD421N mic (vintage) into an Altec pre (vintage) and a clone of a vintage Universal Audio compressor.

L BV: AKG D310-1589B-1176 = left backing vocal is a vintage AKG mic in the above chain

Rt BV: EVnd257B-1589B-1176 = right BV is an Electrovoice mic (like the one I did a thread on cleaning, altho’ this one is an “B” version, not “A”)

RthmGtrs: SG-Vox-MXL144Rbn-ISA1 = that black Gibson you like into a Pathdfinder into a MXL ribbon mic (modded) into a Focusrite pre

Ld Gtrs: F100-ProJr-RE3320-UA710-A = a G&L into a small Fender into a Electrovoice RE320 (the latest version of the RE20) into a Universal Audio pre (the “-A” is a typo)

Ripped to the Tits
c. ’12 virtualan & son & vlayman

Well I seen that you were makin’ the scene
Until you seen that I seen
And I finally seen, that you was everything
to me
everything

I knew the truth but I never used to could say it
I knew the truth and that’s why I stayed
Ripped to the tit’s

Well you seen me checkin’ out the scene
And all them that seen me, was wonderin’ where I been
And I finally seen, that you was everything
And I finally seen that you was everything
to me

I knew the truth but I never used to could say it
I knew the truth and that’s why I stayed
Ripped to the tit’s
Ripped to the tit’s
Ripped to the tit’s
Ripped to the tit’s

Aaaah.

The Friday Project: “My Synesthesia”

My Synesthesia
c. 12 The Friday Project

I’m on the Tannoys
and I’m guaranteed to annoy
alla my kids
Cuz I’m playin’ stuff over and over and over
like I’m on acid

CH: See the pretty colors there,
See the pretty colors everywhere,
My synesthesia ain’t real
It’s more about the way ya feel
Do ya hear the pretty colors 3x
Now?

The kick drum is purple
Pushes up against my head
It and the bass take up the space
Of all the blues and reds
Guitars is green, yellow and in between
leaves the vocals blue
‘Specially when I’m singin’ ’bout you
CH

I’m on the Tannoys
Annoyin’ both the girls and boys
Cuz I’m playin’ stuff over and over and over
like I’m on acid
