Cool Dudes

I just pinned back me lugholes and had a listen to Kevin The Geologist's latest 'bcast' on the Oonagi Thanet Rocks site. In it Kevin (aka Dusty) discusses the local music scene with another 'cool dude'.

Mind you, he needs to pay a bit more attention to his audio levels. When the Candy Sniper track came on, it blew all the circuits in my deaf aid.

I do hope Kevin keeps up his passionate campaign to transform the Ile into 'Groove Island'. It would make a nice change. After all, currently you only ever hear the word 'hip' around here when it immediately precedes the word 'replacement'.

Yeah, sorry about that, I'm having a bit of trouble with the levels at the moment. We've been discussing about how to improve it, maybe I'll re-release a revised version.

So far as keeping up the passion. The site has been going for six years so far, so it's unlikely that that site will dissappear soon.

Don't know what you're using, but there's a good little bit of free software called Audacity which handles .wavs and .aifs.

You can download it from here.

That is what I'm using. It does have a very good compressor function on it, or maybe I'm doing it wrong. Anyhows, it's pretty much redone now, just mp3ing it as I type.

Have you been tempted to do a podcast? You could use effects to disguise your voice.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Nah, it would be too much like a busman's holiday for me. That's why I don't really bother with photos much either.

You didn't think I was making all this celebrity broadcaster stuff up, did you?!?!

SkinOfStars said...

Curiouser and curiouser. The plot thickens. I think sometimes you weave elements of truth into your blog which are almost indistinguishable from the fantasy world you live in.

So I'll say "yes, of course I believe you are a celebrity broadcaster. I wouldn't have it any other way".

Eastcliff Richard said...

Everything you read here has a ring of truth about it, Dusty old sport.

For example, I actually did meet Richard Millhouse Nixon once.

And, you may be amused to hear, as I know you're musically minded, I was once told to 'f*ck off' by no less a personage than Sir Mick Jagger.

Of course, those things could have happened to anyone, even a humble khazi cleaner!

Duck Baker said...

Had to chuckle about that. It's been my lifetime ambition to be told to 'FUCK OFF' by someone as impo(r)tant to society!
I want Bob Geldof to tell me where to go and I'd like Sting to guide me on my way, perhaps accompanied by Mark Knopfler.

bob geldof owes me 30p. he askes me for it in barnes so he could buy a newpaper, and he didnt want to break his £20 note.

in retrospect i should have told him to "fuck off" or say "im not a fucking charity"
