I'm still on the ceiling after last night's recording session!  We did 7 songs in all, 5 originals and 2 covers.  One thing is for sure, they sound a ton better than the ones on the Myspace site do.  I'm going to the drummer Shelley's place today to listen back to the tracks and oversee the mixing and editing. 
The songs we did were:

1) Unisexual
2) Nekkid
3) Born This Way (Nude) - a virtual re-write of Lady Gaga's hit
4) The X-Factor - anyone who remembers the kids pop music gameshow "Cheggers Plays Pop" will recognise the riff from the theme tune once I put it up
5) I'm Free - cover of the Rolling Stones song made famous in the early 90's by The Soup Dragons
6) Stop Segregation - sounding very similar to "Stray Cat Strut"
7) Botoxic - an acoustic piece

So all you little nudesters who are reading this thread, will let you know when they'll be up and ready for public consumption!  ;-D

Great news Dario. What is your recording/ editing/ mixing rig?

It's not mine, it belongs to Shelley's former g/f Michelle.  The make of it is BOSS, that's about as much I know.  :)

Hi all,

I have only just started to use Windows SkyDrive, so please let me know if this link works:

https://skydrive.live.com/#cid=395EBBC2D2000472&id=395EBBC2D2000472%211408

I'd like to ask you to keep these files confidential, as I intend to re-do a few of them shortly.  You are priviliged to be the first people to hear these tracks.  :-)

The link worked fine for me.

Is it set up as private or something like that? Because people not logged into your account might not be able to access it then. The message is pretty vague on whether it is a permission issue or an error.
Please send me a message on the forum before contacting me over IM. For best results, also mention what you want to talk about, I am not much of a smalltalker.

OK, I have posted them up to the band's website at http://www.myspace.com/laissezfayre and they are working fine.  I have also deleted the first 2006 demo recordings as they were pretty insipid compared to the new ones.  Only "R-E-S-P-O-N-S-I-B-I-L-I-T-Y" is still on there as it was the song that has had the most hits.

Out of them, I really like "Nekkid", "Stop Segregation", "Born This Way (Nude)" and "Botoxic (Highly Toxic Mix)".

*bump* has anybody heard the new tracks?  Would love your C&C on them.  I have been devising a rough timeline for the band, and would like to be making some promo videos for the songs "Nekkid" and "Unisexual" within the next 7 months to put out as a single.  I'm going to be re-doing "Unisexual" as it slips in the rhythm just towards the end.

Here's a recording of "Nekkid", which I've created a picture story on YouTube for.  Hope you like it!

Would you believe this - "Nekkid" has had almost 45,000 hits on YouTube now!  That's quite a feat for an act which is currently not working or even been signed to a major label for that matter.  I'm flummoxed, and excited at the same time.  :)

Re-uploaded "Nekkid" on the band's YouTube channel:



Also jamming with a new girl who does nude modeling, sings and plays keyboards and is studying behavioural psychology.  She likes what the band's about but thinks the best way to go about it would be to first build up an audience base and do contemporary girl pop covers and gradually intertwine the originals into the set instead of shock people.  :)

I've written a song with the afore-mentioned model friend of mine called Tayjsha titled "Cos She Cries" about a woman with an eating disorder.  We've only played it a few times, but I'll get someone to film us playing it once we've got it down pat.

I've also invited her and few other girls who are interested in the band to the From Above Normal event at Pacific Sun Friends on November 22nd.
