24 April 2013

I’ve managed to make some sense of my studio gear that arrived from the UK last week after our move to WA so I’m going to get back to the song blog posts asap.

I do unfortunately have some stuff I need to repair which may hold me up a bit but the soldering iron is out and wire trimmers are at the ready. Work on my EP will resume in good time.

Kris Buckle song blog part 7 ‘Waiting in Line’ #krisbucklesongblog

11 April 2013

Hey guys,

Sorry about the delay with this one but between moving house and destroying my laptop I’ve been a bit tied up. This track is called ‘Waiting in Line’ and was written around 1997. When I performed this track at college we had a special guest by the name of Bernard Purdie who’s recorded drums with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Gil Scott-Heron, Isaac Hayes, Cat Stevens,The Rolling Stones and Miles Davis among many others. Need I say more, the guys had an amazing career. He sat in on our performances and judged each of us.

He gave he’s honest opinion on people’s work and some of it wasn’t nice but he loved this track and got up and played it with me. It was a real moment for me, I have the recording on cassette and the guy has an exceptional groove without doubt!!!

Kris Buckle song blog part 6 ‘Hard to be good’ #krisbucklesongblog

27 March 2013

Welcome to part 6 of my video song blog where I’m taking a little trip through the songs I’ve written over the years. This weeks blog is a track I wrote at college in 1997 for an assignment we were given to write a hit?! Unfortunately it wasn’t:)

The live version with drums and bass was kicking and I stuck a bit of distortion on the chorus riff which sounded big!! Since starting this blog I’m getting the urge to record these songs properly with bass and drums just for the luxury of being able to listen to them in good quality rather than the dicta-phone tapes I have.

Hope you enjoy folks, comments welcome.
