I actually sat down here to record another song entirely but screwed around and ended up recording this instead. -- I came up with the guitar riff about 17 seconds before I hit the record button. oh well... Always wanted to do a cover of this tune anyway --Sorry for the slip-up on the 'so let it rain' part near the end... I had the gain set a bit too high in PT and had to delete about a half second of the song to get rid of a crap 'digital distortion' spike. - It sounds like my timing sucks. I was on time but had to trash the phrasing to get rid of the distortion. It was late and I was running out of steam... (Less)

TBC (To Be Continued) Brass Band LIVE in the New Orleans French Quarter.
No idea what that distortion line is in the video - happened on Youtube's end. The uploaded video jitters and looks like crap compared to my original. Please HELP if you know how I can prevent that in the future...
Anyway, this is my first attempt at any kind of real video editing so please go easy on me... I know there are a lot of cuts away from the band in this video but not all of the band footage looked good so I cut away to make it more interesting. The sound surprisingly came out pretty awesome (for an old video cam)... listen on a good system if you can - maybe with a sub? - or just on good headphones -
Thing is I've had this cheap camera (the only vid cam I own) for several years now and have never used it. It's a standard definition Sony DCR-DVD92 -- and believe me -- it's nothing fancy. Before this video I think I had about 45 seconds recording time on it in three years.
One evening some buds and I decided to hit the French Quarter (we live on the Mississippi Coast) and I thought I'd bring my camera along for once in my life. We had just parked and were heading to Bourbon when we walked up on these guys. It was a massive wall of sound in the middle of what I can only describe as one helluva street party.
I only recorded them for the last part of one song (running through the crowd, getting every angle I could) but it looked so good when I played it back a few minutes later I decided to use the rest of that night getting a bunch of little zoom shots all around the French Quarter that I might paste together sometime in the future.
I was so fired up the next day (after the hangover) I threw all this footage together in kind of a frenzy. I had to learn the editing software (Adobe Premier CS3) on the fly. I wanted to edit everything while I still felt the passion of seeing the song live. It was tough to get all the different 'fast cut' angles and the look I wanted with only a few minutes footage but I hope I conveyed at least a little of how kickass this was to witness live.
I feel lucky to have seen this in person and even luckier to catch it on video. I'm inspired now to do more with my camera. If you're ever in New Orleans and want to see something that will change you, make a point of finding these guys - you won't be disappointed...
Oh yeah... sorry about the language in the end of the vid. I just couldn't bring myself to cut it. It says more with two words than I could ever show of the emotion of the moment. (Less)

Couldn't help it. Another instant classic by the Gregory Brothers. The shamisen makes me do these. The shamisen is the name of the instrument I'm playing. It comes from Japan, has three strings and no frets. I strike the strings with a big plectrum called a bachi! Woo!

This is the ORIGINAL first ever uploaded cover of this Decemberists song on youtube. We are
no longer together and I do not speak to her anymore. In fact I do not know where she is
anymore and I do not wish to think of her at all. This is also the first cover I ever shot.

So here we are. A new album is in the making for you lovely people, and it will be ready, hopefully, by early 2009. It will be a rather novel departure from Awkward Ballads in terms of instrumentation, but subject matter, witty lyricism and lovely music will be staying put :D I do so hope you like it.
