Probably not, but my band just recorded a demo and one of the songs is up here:

Enjoy...again, or not. It's quite aggressive. I'm playing bass. oh yeah.

I'm feeling really really very old.

Sounded OK in terms of the backing - sounds like some talent on the guitar and drums at least.

But the "singer" just sounds like a demented drunken old tramp shouting incoherent rubbish over the top. And not in a good way. Maybe that's what you were going for, I dunno..... Confused

Bass sounded fine though! Thumbs Up

I didn't think many would appreciate the singing but I think it really adds something. Us youngsters, I suppose. Also, whilst some of the lyrics are really hard to make out, they are really solid. At least, I think so. Smile

I actually didn't do the best job of the bass apparently but the guy mixing it has made it sound pretty good. And yeah, our lead guitarist is strangely talented for someone who has no proper guitar training.

Yeah, it adds the sound of someone who can't sing anyway trying to shout something over the top of an otherwise good backing track whilst apparently having a red hot knitting needle stuck up his one-eyed trouser snake.... Laughing I should write for the music press.

See now I can't see the point of "solid" lyrics when you can't make them out. Old fashioned I know. I sound like my parents.

Talent doesn't always need training... Wink

OMG - I know I'm old, but if I was really, really drunk, maybe I could dance to that... My dog was howling too! Shocked

Just under the bit where you type your message, these's a section titled "Add and Attachment", click the "browse" button, find the file, click "open", click "submit", et voila!

WPL? that's a bit strange. Is the file you're uploading an MP3?

I think so, but I've really no idea. It was emailed to me by our guitarist who said it was MP3, I've tried saving that attachment to the computer & then doing as you suggested but no joy.

Any way of doing it straight from the email attachment?

I'm not good at this as you can tell Laughing

The first time I play upon a stage, I'll let you know. As it is, I've only ever played (read: practiced) in rooms with one level- i.e. no stage. haha. That said, I intend to surprise everyone with my level-headedness.
