I have written quite a lot of songs. There are plenty already recorded and released, but lots more just exist as rough demos.
Lots of those just aren’t good enough to bother recording properly, but plenty are actually pretty good songs that just haven’t found a place on an album.
I want to record some as singles, but there are lots to choose from. Therefore it seems sensible to have a demo song tournament to decide which I will record ‘properly’ and release as a single.
Introducing Tom Slatter’s Tournament Of Perfectly Adequate Demo Songs.
Here are the rules:
- There are 8 songs. Loser in each bout will be eliminated. Most votes wins.
- Anyone can vote and you do so by commenting under this post, or the facebook post, or the bandcamp post.
- Votes from the members of the Immoral Supporters Club on bandcamp are worth twice anyone elses. I know who they are.
- I can’t be bothered setting up a proper poll – I’ll just count the comments manually. Any mistakes I make are irrelevant – this is my competition. I am the referee. I reserve the right to make arbitrary and unfair decisions.
The eventual winner will become a properly recorded single, rather than a rough demo.
Want a double vote? You need to be an immoral subscriber then. Here’s a link for that.
First up: ‘Mysteries and Monsters’, a very old song lamenting the death of magic, and ‘Anything to Make you Mine’, an extremely creepy ‘love’ song.
Of course they are demos, not the finished article, so don’t expect perfect recordings or performances.
Have a listen to the video and let me know which you prefer.
