I thought there was more discussion about this... maybe it was an exchange of emails... I'm on another computer these days, and haven't heard anything more. I've got started on my contribution. Basic arrangement anyway. I've picked an odd bit to cover, so I feel pretty free to do what ever I want. The original, which I got from Micky, is pretty nifty but not like anything you might have heard before. Makes it much harder to fcc up.

I don't think you've missed anything, Ron - I guess everybody is getting their contribution(s) together.

I've more or less finished the backings to my version of 'CDTM' give or take a few howling wolves and windy weather, although I'm having a bit of problem with rain. I have auditioned two rain storms so far. The first lot sounded like hiss. The second lot were a bit better, but sounded like crackling. It's not easy. And rain can be so temperamental - push it to far and it'll throw an artistic strop and the barometric pressure will drop by 5 newtons (36km).

There's also a bonus mashup of 'Night In Dad's Bag' but this will probably have to be left off as it might be a bit too naughty. Heh Heh.

The old sound effects trick was to drop rice grains onto a balloon to simulate the sound of rain.  I suppose if you want heavy rain you could try pees...

Don't know about any of the other mugs involved, but my track is done, 'cept for the mix. Once again, we didn't play fair. Brought in a ringer to do the solos. Deniz Tek was chuffed to be asked. After watching God Walks Past.... he had a bit more understanding and respect for the boys. And doing a song none of you have ever heard gives us an advantage   ;)

Who do I send this to? Should have it wrapped up in a couple of days. Got sidetracked working on the new Brain album. Is there really 18 songs in the works? That's what the list sez. Some of you guys had better buy copies of the last one, so we can do the deluxe vinyl+CD package I have in mind... haha

[/quote]  i don't know exactly what you mean by that."tweak" in this context means adjusting the levels or other things that engineers and producers do, like removing and adding things,fading things in and out,changing the way an instrument sounds,picking what sounds to use et al .but everything is played or sang by me on this track, in tribute to Micky :)...actually we are gonna "tweak" i.e. "mix" the music together tonight after we are done over dubbing.Alfredo will not be "tweaking" alone.with modern technology if you play a bad note you can erase it.that would be a form of "tweaking" in this situation for example.anyhow we are working on the interlude section right now;Alfredo stepped out.our friend Cristin is coming over to hang,it's gonna snow big tomorrow.we have hours in front of us to finish this.it'll be ready to send over tomorrow if not sooner.i've figured out some chord changes for the first middle interlude.we gotta do some percussion,pick from multiple takes of the same instruments,maybe put down some more keys,and mix it then we'll be done.we are having a great evening and it's getting better...i hope will you like the finished result-cheers-Davey 
Title: Re: Micky Jones Tribute CD
Post by: Rob W on January 11, 2011, 10:47:28 AM
Sorry, davey. It got lost in translation. Just a poor play on the word "tweak". You know, 'tweak' to 'Tweke'. So your band is playing with Tweke.....

And a 'ringer' is where let's say an amateur band enters a competition, and within the band they sneak in a professional. That professional is called a 'ringer'.

So, Tweke is a ringer, and that is cheating.

Simple.......ish

A final call for contributions to the tribute album - the closing date is next Saturday (22nd).

There are a wide ranging variety of tracks already submitted, and the album is shaping up to be a fine tribute to Micky.

I hear on the grapevine that Nick Nation is still working on his contribution, but is running out of tracks for his epic production - how many is it up to now Nick?  Don't forget 'Sgt. Pepper' was recorded on 4-track and that sounded half decent...

It was 70, Mr P - but I've now got that down to 67. Obviously it is likely to increase....perhaps a sweepstake could be arranged?

67 tracks? yer joking, right? I think the most we've ever needed was about 30... wouldn't want to mix all those bits... Got Ric "the one take fcc'r" banging out drums as we speak. Might get drums on eleven songs this weekend. Planned on 10, but we are way ahead of schedule. Drums on 8 tracks, and two of those are experimental mics, just to see if it adds anything...

First Yorkshireman:
Four tracks - we used to dream of having four tracks.  In my day it t'were direct to mono, and that were it.

Second Yorkshireman:
Mono - we used to dream of recording t'mono.  We recorded to an acetate disc, and if you made a cock-up you had to scrap t'disc, and you got a clip round t'ear from the producer.

Third Yorkshireman:
Acetate - we used to dream of recording t'acetate.  We only had wax cylinder, and that were second hand, we used to have to smooth over t'grooves with a candle.

Fourth Yorkshireman:
Wax cylinder  - we used to dream of recording on t'wax cylinder.  First recordings we made were grooves in t'plate while t'potter kept plate spinning.

Understandable Mr Joules, after all I usually talk bolleaux.

67 tracks? yer joking, right?

In fact....no, Ron - it really is that many. At the moment. I did think about writing them down, but all that would prove was that I can write. Besides, most of you couldn't give a flying feck. Anyway, it's now down to 64 tracks thanks to a bit of pre-mixing - although many of these are stereo, so does that count as two? In which case it would be 92. Plus my 5 FX returns are routed individually back to the desk rather squished into an aux return - so that would make it 97. If it's good enough for Phil Spector, it's good enough for me.

We only had wax cylinder, and that were second hand, we used to have to smooth over t'grooves with a candle.

To make sure you hear just how much like the original it is, as well as other MJ related ditties, I suggest you get a copy of Mr P's fabulous Micky Jones Tribute CD in due course.

The CD is now mastered and the artwork complete, so I will be sending off the package to the duplicators tomorrow. The anticipated release date is 10 March, which will be one year on from Micky's passing.

The method of distribution will be as per 'Crintabulated' , i.e. the CD is not a commercial release, and is free to friends, ideally with a donation to Micky's nominated causes.

The tracks are:
01. THE HEADSTONE POETS - Back Together Again (7:02) 
02. ROSTOCK - Long Lost Friend (4:53)
03. DAVID SCOTT - Kerosene (7:24)   
04. DONOVAN'S BRAIN - Violin Thing (4:30)   
05. ELIGH TOADD - Angel Easy (5:25)   
06. THE HEADSTONE POETS - C'mon (mon) (9:31) 
07. THE QUAFFING LLAMAS - The Acidtone Variations (parts 1- 3) (8:20)   
08. NICK NATION & FRIENDS - Call Down The Moon (5:41)   

I'll be posting a link to a dedicated web page shortly.

...yeah, and the remaining footage from the filming.

I've only just noticed that the film doesn't include any of the songs on AWTEW - is this a coincidence or was it deliberate?

This just received from Vicky at Esoteric:

"It is just over 12 months since Micky Jones, mainstay of Man, passed away. The Manband Forum have organised a free tribute album to Micky. You can join the forum at http://www.manband-archive.com/forum ".

I nearly fell of my seat when I read that. I thought Martin Ace was trying to do something then, until I realised it was Martin Mycock.. :-X

I'll put in in the bag for the next one and see what happens.

I was surprised to see that our track was the shortest one on the record.

played Nick's CDTM and our own Violin Thingy on my show today. Quite like that version of CDTM. Some nice ideas. I'll have my show posted by tomorrow. Connection is funky today... maybe due to yet another big snow storm

Well done all, particularly to Mr P for all his hard work in putting the CD together.

From the better late than never dept...got a listen to this this evening...had a feeling I may be amidst talent, great stuff. Not what I expected but pleasantly so. Got me thinking, a dubwise selection of Man riffs would be interesting.....

Hmmm....perhaps a bit like the second part of my version of 'Call Down The Moon' which can be heard on my site here: http://www.nicknation.co.uk/MJones.html (http://www.nicknation.co.uk/MJones.html)

It comes from the Micky Jones Tribute Album which is still available here: https://sites.google.com/site/mickyjonestributealbum/ (https://sites.google.com/site/mickyjonestributealbum/) with proceeds to good causes!
