lady penelope Demo to try to get live gigs. Is this ok (17) RE: Demo to try to get live gigs. Is this ok 09 Jul 08

Sorry Nick, gotta say I wouldn't use this to try for gigs on the whole. The first track up - New Year's Day - sounds dreadful. I know it's the acoustics in the venue, but the band sounds really un - together. Some of the later tracks are better, but it's not showing you in a good light. Heh, it reminds me of the bootleg tapes we used to get down Camden Market of the gigs we went to in the Marquee and that. Great for reminisence, but lousy for getting work.

If you have video footage with reasonable sound I'd go the YouTube route, but for a mail drop or tout about cd I'd record something of a better quality.

If you want it to sound 'live' you can always go for the large-room-and-bunch-of-mates-to-be-the-audience technique...
