The sound of ears breaking
Many years ago I started a band with a friend. We were both just learning to play guitar and both held the same dissatisfaction with the Jewish music scene. He was into classic rock and I was into punk. We decided to start a Jewish band that actually made good music.
I have to point out that this was pre-Blue Fringe and the rest. Matisyahu would have been a fable. Who would have thought what we failed at would become so popular a few years later? So at the time this was a completely novel idea.
Anyways, doing this blog made me a bit nostalgic so I dug up my old CD binder. I have about four CD’s filled with various demos and covers that we did. They all sound horrible, cheap equipment and recorded on a cheap laptop with a cheap mic from Radioshack. Don’t go expecting anything listenable here. My tone is horrible and I don’t think he can sing. Theres also no mastering or production to speak of. Anyways, be the first to hear these rarities from what might have been!
Theres two Jewish songs, plus an English one (Yechi). (See how stereotypically Jewish we were? 🙂 )
Note: ‘Yechi’ is a joke. We’re not Lubavitchers. It was kind of a phase where we found them hilarious. Lyrics available on request if you can’t understand them.
