Here are some demo recordings of our songs! They are all ‘rough’ reference demo tracks as we’re working on this, most were recorded ‘live’ in the garage using nothing more than a single microphone in the middle of room, just so we had something to review and work on arrangements, etc. A few were done with even less … a Galaxy S5 using Voice recorder!! But the results are quite listenable. As time goes on, we’ll replace the samples here with better grade demos, but for now… this is what we sound like if you had attended our practice sessions in the garage! Warts, bloops, band back chatter, messed up lyrics… writing and performing original music starts somewhere, and this is our start!

[Nigel plays the piano]
Marty DiBergi: It’s pretty.
Nigel Tufnel: Yeah, I like it. I’ve been fooling around with it for a few months now. Very delicate.
Marty DiBergi: It’s a bit of a departure from what you normally play.
Nigel Tufnel: Yeah, well, it’s part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy that I’m doing in D… minor, which I always find is really the saddest of all keys, really, I don’t know why. It makes people weep instantly to play [plays and sings]
Nigel Tufnel: It’s a horn part.
Marty DiBergi: It’s very pretty.
Nigel Tufnel: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like — I’m really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it’s sort of in between those, really. It’s like a Mach piece, really. It’s sort of…
Marty DiBergi: What do you call this?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, this piece is called “Lick My Love Pump.”
