Week #20 A ‘House’ Song July 18, 2011

Posted by Andy in video.
add a comment

Week #20 of the Songwriters Circle Challenge suggests that you can write a House Song.

This can be a song from the 1990’s “House Music” genre, or a song about a house.

House Music has a specific style of rythm which I find hard to describe in words. It’s basically four four with the accent on every beat, ONE-TWO-THREE-FOUR-and-ONE-TWO….

Songs about houses are a somewhat UK centric phenomena, but I’m sure there are examples worldwide to prove me wrong as well.

From my own terrible memory alone, I can point to

“Our House” Madness
“Neighbourhood” – Space
“House on The Hill” – Kevin Koyne
“Country House” – Blur
“Bungalow Bill” – Lennon/McCartney
and of course… “House of The Rising Sun” – Animals/Trad

Looking forward to hearing your House songs!

The Live Session from Lizzy B’s acoustic night at the Essex Arms Brentwood takes up most of podcast #35 with one new song written for the Songwriters Circle challenge appended. There wasn’t a live podcast on livestream this week, so it was handy that I had these tracks almost ready to go.

Podcast Episode 31 Re-recorded February 2, 2011

Posted by Andy in Andy Roberts Music.

Here’s another version of podcast episode 31 re-recorded on Wednesday morning with most of of the same songs roughly, as the one which went out live on Tuesday evening. So if you were there, online watching the show and chatting with Linda in one of the realtime boxes then you should notice this isn’t exactly the same performance. The instrumental guitar pieces for example, as improvisations will be will be very different. I’m sure one or two sings are missing too, and one or two added. That’s all part of the process. And the new strings will be over twelve hours old now as well, instead of being only 12 minutes since restringing. I had even thought of doing the restring live on the podcast itself, as a piece of performance a-r-t but Linda said it wouldn’t make a very good audio podcast and I came around to that point of view eventually.

Here’s the web player, download link, tracklist and show notes for Podcast Episode 31:

For this week’s podcast because there couldn’t be a live show, so  I’ve done something a bit different. Instead of recording the show and then maybe ending up with some songs for youTube, I’m making the podcast out of videos that I have already on there. It’s the best of my youTube channel from 2010, my pick of five from the most popular songs on there, strung together with a little bit of introduction.

Acoustic Guitar Podcasts: Episode #19 November 10, 2010

Posted by Andy in video.
add a comment

Episode #19 in Andy Roberts series of acoustic guitar podcasts was recorded on Tuesday 9th November 2011 and published today on the 10th.

Inspired by friends’ lists of 15 songwriters tagged and copied in Facebook, I played songs by Neil Diamond, Steve Tilston, Andy Roberts, Loudon Wainwright and a bonus track Roy Harper song at the start of which there’s an unfortunate inbound telephone ringtone but I didn’t let that faze me at all, oh no. If you do happen to be listening on an iphone or in a house then the effect could be unpredictable.

Here’s the stuff:

    How Does It Feel? Podcasting November 5, 2010

    Posted by Andy in video.
    add a comment

    I announced a new series of podcasts back in the summer and I’ve published 18 episodes so far.  The original idea was just to provide another distribution method for the live house concert that I broadcast weekly for the past year or so. So it’s just me and my guitar, not much chat or conversation, and I try to feature my own compositions as a matter of course, with the covers creeping in as and when I feel like it.

    But this week I actually went and learned a Roy Harper song that is new to my repertoire – the classic  “How does it Feel?”  And then I went and performed it live at the Havering Folk Club at somebody else’s guest night, with some good reactions, but not necessarily from the usual suspects.

    So I thought I’d do a post here on Stormcock.net, an exercise in listing each of the individual podcasts where I’ve included a Roy Harper cover.

    The Andy Roberts Podcast is hosted at http://andyroberts.me and can also be accessed from iTtunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/andy-roberts/id378470885
