Captain Ego and the Minions / Bio

Just one guy who's played for lots of bands or studio "session work" since age 15, some very successful.. some very good but in the wrong place at the wrong time... some not worth remembering.. and he worked in recordig studios a lot...

So here's this guy, with his little demo project origionally created so other people could hear "kind of" what it is supposed to sound like (assume the drummer wont be as amateurish as this - I just have a drumset and a familiarity with it from years on the scene but never really learned it and it um... shows here n there).

I use a little portable 8 track recorder so I can get a right and left channel for each of the 4 primary elements of the songs (guitar/bass/drums/vocals) and have occassionaly layed tracks down in old train tunnels for the cool echo or isolated woods for the peace, but mostly its in a laundry area when it is not in use (nice rumble for the background). Kind of a ramshackle method I use, keep it simple - no redo's no edits, just hit record and play, then go back and play the next bit along with it until it has all four bits and sounds like a whole band. I prefer it kind of raw like that. Either that or I'm just not very interested in meticulously autotuning and nanosecond shifting the timing of things to metronomic perfection and whatnot... or just lazy.

.(it's rock, man, what is it supposed to be, right? a bunch of computer editing and micromanaging and audio tweaking... or a dude playing some songs... 3 chords and an attitude baby... 3 chords and an attitude.

Guitar:, Bass, Drums, Vocals:: Jme ) the "Minions" i guess would be my overlayed parts untll the right couple of people come along who want to join in and rock out.
