Just seeing if there's any actual interest in this...

 

On September 14, 1999, an album by the name of Beautiful Midnight was released. A short time later, it found its way into my CD player, and long story short became part of a significant milestone in my life.

 

I find it hard to believe that an entire decade has past since then, and how much the world has changed in that time. I think now is as good a time as any to revisit it, in the form of a tribute/cover to quite possibly one of the greatest albums of our time.

 

So here's the plan (which of course with feedback is subject to change): 14 tracks, 14 fans/collaborations (Postal Service style?), each covering a song from the album (hopefully in more than the YouTube standard "I have a webcam and an acoustic guitar so here's this song I just learned how to play" format) to be released to the online masses on September 14, 2009.

 

Thoughts?

We've tried doing a bunch of covers/tribute projects and none of them really took off I'm afraid.

I think fair amount of people actually did record some tunes though, it just never got pulled together and produced.

Even if it would work, based on the previous statements, I haven't had my bass nearly long enough to contribute something useful.

Well anybody let me know if they want to get something together. I can play guitar, bass, and sing a little. I am totally for this.

As before, NF would be glad to host the downloads/mp3s if this manages to go through.

What ever happened to that mgt.cityaftersix website or whatever?

I contributed Prime Time Deliverance to that tribute cd, and that was well over a year ago, it has still yet to be completed...

VTSV, i'm sure you could find a beautiful midnight track or two on there already completed

some of them from the last time were great. i'd love to help out but i have no equipment...can I sing into my phone and send it to ya? or my rock band mic? I would love to contribute !

 

I definitely agree beau midnight is a life changer...I didn't find it until like 2001ish but it still was very important.

Well, if it does happen, I'd definitely participate.

I could probably play a few of the easier songs on guitar, not sure how to record that though.

 

It's too bad I don't have a drum kit anymore, because then I'd play the whole album.

I'm all for the project. I've done Jenni's Song live a few times acoustically, I'm sure I could get a decent demo recording done in a timely fashion.

For those of you wanting to contribute and wondering how to record...

If you have a PC download Audacity here: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/

It's free recording software thats extremely easy to use. You can record via a microphone, built in microphone in your laptop or line in.

 

And if you have a mac, I'm sure your well aware you have garageband on your harddrive.

If you haven't used it before, give it a shot, really simple and gives amazing results after some practice with it.

i could easily do a cover of something from the album... but as said, it's been tried and never actually plays through the way you think. wouldn't be a bad idea though, for us on here.

i'd be down, might be able to do a couple of songs but would need to find a singer.

 

definitely would want to try suburbia

I'm always in for this kind of idea, but sadly it never really goes. I had high hopes for the last attempt.

 

Anyway, I don't really have anything from BM in my lexicon of poorly played songs. I can sign most of it, but that is only in my delusional opinion.

I did the Prime Time Deliverance cover for that other project...but I'd definitely like to do something new for any other kind of compilation. Problem is I've had technical issues ever since I bought a new computer. I need to get a new sound card. One that doesn't suck.

i really think this could work. i mean, people DID record covers for the last project as aforementioned, it's just the guy disappeared for no absolute reason after putting the project off for so long.

 

i'm definitely down for this. sign a bit, maybe do keyboard =)

When I'm not lazy, I'm going to upload the covers from the last attempt. If I can find them.

I'm not getting my hopes up because of what happened the last two times but if my cover of "A Boy and His Machine Gun" is up to the standards, its available to download on my site... http://www.virb.com/themorningmarch

I hope i can figure out my technical issues soon. I would like to do a cover of Silent Army. I love playing that song on the guitar.

Apparitions is my weakest song... but that is because I can only really strum and you need to be smarter than that to play it.

 

Also I think we are talking about covers from Beautiful Midnight, which, unless you are American doesn't have Apparitions on it ;)
