Thanks Mother Russia. - We will be doing some obscure stuff in the near future. We already have a few Big Black songs and others, but I see what you mean. - Personally I'd quite like a shot at Son Of A Preacher Man. - And goth it up a bit! We love 'Alice' though and it has to be covered! - Still wor...

'Wow Factor' - That's an interesting concept. We definitely want this in our cover. - Ideas so far: - Violent punchy drums - Thumping bass line - EQ changes on all tracks - More vocal echoes here and there - 2nd guitar track for chords in the chorus (not recorded yet) - Drastic equalisation and FX c...

Yeah - You and Sultan are bob-on with your comments about the vocals and the mixing. We ain't mixed it yet as such to be fair. There'll be another version at some point. Vox-wise, we deliberately went for an over-the-top tinny distorted sound, which still needs more work. We now have a slightly mad ...

Yeah - The vocals are very much a work in progress. Know what you mean with the EQ on everything else as well. There'll be another version eventually that will sort all this out.

'Alice' cover by 'Sonic Tech Support'.

Thought we'd do a Sisters cover. Alice was an obvious choice. Banged it on Soundcloud. Link is below if you're bored.

I'm the miserable guy who posted the massive review above. I've just watched the videos of last night on the 2 links above and it looks and sounds ace. I think I must have been a bit hung over this morning when I wrote the above and would like to withdraw most of the negative comments. It was a grea...
