Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I absolutely didn't mean to disrespect any working artists, who no doubt have done the math and know what it takes far better than I.

I don't get the vinyl "fetish" at all personally, but that's just me I suppose.

Re: Record Store Day April 2024.

Small/emerging acts simply get pushed out. Pressing plants will gladly soil their collective kleenex for huge runs & push genuine new talent to the back of the queue because of $$ & the fact we all really want to have 43 vinyl variants of the latest rolling stones album. I'm sorry, but if t...

Between the bottom of the boards & the information panel there is the option to mark forums as read. If it's not working please sing out so I can let Barry know :) I use this a lot. It's a bit of a dexterity test to hit on the decktop, and nearly impossible on mobile. Could be a bit more promin...

Re: easy £££ selling sh!t to idiot$!

Yeah nice one EMWK. I myself have created 2 previously unreleased versions of Far Parade from the published lyrics and a couple of prompts. The free-tier model doesn't get Eldritch vocals but maybe we can say it's Ben singing? https://suno.com/song/3292ebc1-4a39-4ee5-bb19-11126fe06382 https://suno.c...

Re: Sgt Pepper must die!

Re: best TSOM karaoke option

What about like Walk Away? catchy and won't weird people out too much Not a bad option yeah, though maybe a little obscure. You could include most all the Hussey side of FALAA in that bucket. This Corrosion, all 10 minutes, not breaking eye contact, even the choir parts. Reckon this is a good way t...

Re: best TSOM karaoke option

It simply has to be YCBTO…. YCBTO does tick a lot of boxes. But it's pretty obscure and you do have to sing the worst penis metaphor in the history of rock music. Would work for the right crowd I think. When You Don't See Me? Yeah agreed WYDSM is on my short list. I think Detonation Boulevard is an...

Corrosion radio edit is ~4mins and hella main stream, no german, not whiny and family friendly. Good shout, although I'd be concerned about the availability of the various shorter edits out there. For e.g. on Spotify I only see the shorter mix listed in various "80s" compilation albums - ...

best TSOM karaoke option

Let's say you've unwittingly ended up at a karaoke event and everyone is taking a turn. You can't sing for sh*t but you still wanna show off your favourite band. Which Sisters song do you request? I guess my thought process goes like this: - mixed crowd means you want a mainstream choice that at lea...

Re: Something Fast

Just coming here to warn people that if you're at a karaoke event and you verbally request "something fast by the sisters of mercy", the DJ is likely to queue up Temple Of Love. Which is a rather different song to try and sing.

Well it has but not to TSOM, our band is well down the global queue for this sort of thing.
