when i headed to Brisbane for Big Sound i filmed an episode of Balcony TV Melbourne.
after an awkward first take and a minor argument between the singer and i this is the final take and it’s lovely and beautiful sounds!
As mentioned in my last post I interviewed WIM for balcony TV Brisbane.
There was all sorts of wrong with this.
I had done little research as it was organized last minute, the first take the producer cut the band in the intro as they were talking to much, then the horrible second take started! I didn’t say the Bands name in the introduction (I also didn’t realize I didn’t say it).
The band played the song I thought well but they weren’t happy, then the interview!! Out of all of the interviews I have done I hadn’t done one as bad as this!
The interview started off well then the band said they were going to America for the album of which I thought to record and then the singer says: “no it’s been out since may and our name is WIM if you didn’t know” man it was awkward and the producer is still filming!!
After a little bit of arguing we actually hugged and apologized and we said he’s not use to interviews as he hasn’t done many, at that point someone points out the mic isn’t plugged in!!! Aghhh safe!
The third attempt was great and lovely and I watched them play after and made a few friends!
So I did Big Sound, well attempted to but due to get the flu on the first night and having to keep it low key it wasn’t the Big Sound everyone else was having.
I missed the forums yesterday as I was sick in bed, thankfully Robyn looked after me well.
I managed to catch some bands last night and make some meetings.
Gossling; she’s cute but sickly cute. Her baby voice got to me and I went across the road to see
Tiny Ruins; who is a subtle in her appearance but such a strong voice with heartfelt songs! She’s like a jeff Buckley.
Then I headed to see a personal favourite of mine Boy In A Box; they played as a 3 piece to a packed audience and it was disappointing. They sounded empty and weak and looked nervous and awkward, saying that word is their management loved it as a 3 piece, my thoughts were oh shit this is the end!
Split Seconds; I’ve been wanting to see since I interviewed them for Balcony TV.
They were so different to what I’d expected! So powerful and energetic unlike the way they sound recorded!
Next was WIM. They were the feature album on SYN and I loved what id heard.
That afternoon I filmed an episode of Balcony TV Brisbane and the band I interviewed was WIM. Out of all the interviews I had done it was defiantly the most weird experience, I will explore that in another post but I promised them I’d see them, it was amazing and beautiful and I hope it’s not the last time I see them!
Last for the night was Jinja Safari, although by then I was exhausted and left after one song, but it was as I’d expected.
Now I’m on the skybus to the train station to go to work. They person next to me is pretty much ontop of me.
