FAWM is a perfect storm of witty articulate people who are totally burnt out, with makes for some great left field stream of conciousness comments when people are giving you feedback on your songwriting. Taken out of context they’re even better.
All these are genuine feedback comments on my songs from FAWM 15, from the last which I saw on someone else’s wall.
You have a great voice for romantic songs, and enough wit so that it is not sickening
Brother, you had me at GK Chesterton
This reminds me of Roddy in Flushed Away except it lacks a slug chorus
16-year-old you should be commended for his utter brazenness at some of the rhymes he chose. Current-day you should be commended for delivering them in a non-awkward fashion
I laughed all the way to the toilet!
My earballs quite enjoyed this
My first thought was, “If this were shorter it could be an e.e. cummings poem
Is it bad that I find this kind of funny? It’s the plaintive and varied repetition of “Oh God” that gets me. Maybe this transcends sorrow. Or maybe I’m just a horrible person
It’s almost painful, in a good way
LOL, you really do sound like you have nothing left! Question: did you almost laugh at 1:01 or was that just the life ebbing out of your body?
A work of blokeish romantic art!
I loved what you did with the last line.
It’s like the ending to the Sixth Sense. Sort of
Makes me think of an artist who should be better known, Peter Himmelman. His album “Skin” spooked me so bad I gave it away, not because I disliked it, but because I liked it too much
Now that’s entertainment!
Oh….. yes melting into meltiness.. cheese on toast….. Fab fab fab
Like Larry Norman covering Roy Orbison
Something about the violent performance of an otherwise cheery tune was quite striking
It’s like George with the Maharishi of Narcissistic Meditation
A little wise-ass confrontation coming from the right place is always welcome
Murdered anyone lately?
There not really much else I can say, but I’m on my 2nd listen, and…. Pork! Individually wrapped Pepperoni’s!
“I got corned beef” – classic. The sausage monologue is cool
OMG, the “I’ll make you a sandwhich” verse. Matt, bless you
Must be the impending trombones and flutes and ethnic percussion. Also, you eat weird food
I think you may have earwormed me
Listening to this I see Sesame Streets puppets dancing to this before my inner eye
I enjoyed your voices and accents immensely. It did make me think of an alternate reality in which the lower South Island was settled by Damon Albarn
The question/answer bit reminds me of the “butter pie” part of McCartney’s Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey
Dude you know how like in school you would bust your ass to make a sh***y bicarb volcano, and then you bring it to class and some other kid has built a working nuclear reactor or some s**t? Listening to your music is a lot like that
