now downloadable from Soundcloud in mp3 or wav:
Mick Chorba, Jim Becker, Rob Martin, Lauree McArdle, Ron Bechamps & John Williams
(the *band* name was Jim’s idea, to keep it TFC related)
created for the Teenage Fanclub Message Board tribute 40 Million Seconds-The Long Road to TFC
Featuring members of The Successful Failures, Taggart and Stars Apart. Recorded at FDR studios.
In August, I got together with some great friends and we recorded the Teenage Fanclub song “Don’t Look Back”
It was for a contribution to the latest Fanclub message board tribute compilation and it marks the first time I’ve had the courage to record my singing voice. Mick, Becker, and Rob were great and we got an initial rough mix in just a couple hours in one night. The rest happened after I had to come back to Virginia and then Ron and John got into the mix.
It was a lot of fun to do and I’m glad I did it. I thought the hard part would be singing and recording it. Actually, it’s finishing it and putting it out there into the world for all to hear. I’ve always had an insatiable genuine love & appreciation for music, but it’s gone to a whole new level.
The entire tribute is dedicated to Tom O’Grady, who was a regular on the board. Sadly, I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person. A donation page is up in his memory that includes a link to download the entire tribute and make a donation to cancer research:
here’s another contribution from Wayne James and The Harry Evlar Experience-Sparky’s Dream, with a fabulous video:
