(@cleanshoes) go ahead with babooshka

So I had no intention of doing anything for Rocktober, but ... 1980? That's the year that made me musically, the year when everything fused in hardwiring. Disco, punk, new wave, two tone, electropop, NWOBHM, prog, singer songwriters. It's all in there somewhere. And there were so many great releases that year, I might just have to...

Hm, being a 90s kid, so far I haven't found any album from 1980 that I know or care about. But I might do some later 80s tracks.

Well, you could do 1990, Kid Wink

Anyone handy with a recorder or similar wind instrument and down for a collab?

Maybe ask @katpiercemusic - don't know whether she's still around

Phew! Okay, i did do a song from Doc At The Radar Station. I am sure it isn't everybody's cup of tea but...

I would genuinely love it if this was the album that the 50/90 community committed to covering every song from this year (but i REALLY know that isn't going to happen!) Smile

Watt it be, what I am... (nope, couldn't stop do'in'em... squishy girls, gotta luv'um!) 1988! wow... who even remembers! (Probably have to make a Squishy Girl's Rocktober Cover Art... hmmm what to due!?)

Ugh.
I've tried to record five different tunes today and I'm not happy with any of em.
Guess I'll try again tomorrow. Sad

@Calum Carlyle "I would genuinely love it if this was the album that the 50/90 community committed to covering every song from this year (but i REALLY know that isn't going to happen!)"

me too Biggrin I'll probably get at least one more done off that album before the month is up, about to go listen to it while I mow Biggrin wonder what kind of shapes are going to emerge hahah. Leaning towards Ashtray Heart so far......... Loved your rendition of hot-head too btw!

And now I'm listening to Doc at the Radar Station... been far too long.

Got a tin whistle in d, and a kazoo if that works oh and panflutes I think in em

Squeezed out another cover before we all go our separate ways: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/content/andmoreagain

1967 doesn't end in a zero though, but hey, whatever.

As I said in my comment for @Calum Carlyle's above song, this Rocktober I'm realizing that there is so much music I've never even heard of.
Discovering new music is always nice.

I am glad the captchtas weren't a requirement in normal 5090. They take forever and often fail, on my computer anyway. Maybe i just don't wualify as a human being a lot of the time!

@Fuzzy same here, that or just stuff I just haven't heard in too long of a time or just dismissed as trash just because I didn't like the production of it, even if I have spent more time learning some of the songs I've done than I usually do learning or recording my own stuff Biggrin

Well October came and then almost went. I wanted to do a Clash song, so here's Midnight Log from Sandanista! The Clash did it rockabilly style, I trired to drift toward dub reggae, which is very much not my thing.
