The Penny Licks

Post by biglankyian » Sat Sep 26, 2009 6:40 pm

hi we have a new band that we are working on.

We're called The Penny Licks.

we are Claire and Ian. Claire you may know from such bands as Slow Down Tallahassee, Navvy, Bon Bon Club etc and Ian you may know from The Parallelograms, Smokers Die Younger, Pygmy Globetrotters etc.

The Penny Licks make lo-fi laidback love songs about lo-fi laidback love.

our first song is on our myspace as of now and more are being worked on.

let us know what you think etc.

thanks

I can't find it! It may be that I'm just being stupid or that I don't understand myspace but I can't see any link to a song on there...

it's definitely there, but sometimes the myspace player takes a long time to load, or just doesn't.

i liked the song -- made me think of sarah cracknell singing in a band on the wurlitzer jukebox label -- but thought the (snare or hi-hat or tambourine or whatever) was distractingly high in the mix.

There seems to be a real problem with the myspace player right now that they're being ridiculously slow to correct. This firefox add-on fixed everything for me though - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1879

noted, it's still just a rough version so that can be fixed.

The Myspace audio player doesn't seem to be working for me. Ian - any chance you could email me the songs please?

Me too! Maybe it only works if you're signed up to myspace?

No, there's just some major problems with their player right now. If you have firefox, then the add-on I linked to above fixes things.
Nobody listens to me!

Hello,

it's been a while, i got distracted with doing other stuff (and forgot my log in details so i have a new name, rest assured i am the same Ian as before) but we have recently re-started work on The Penny Licks.

We now have a whole batch of songs in the works and they are shaping up nicely, all vintage synths and crackly drum machines - think St Etienne, Broadcast, Air, Death In Vegas etc

Here's a nice video of one of our "louder" tunes:

...and here's a tune to drink fruity cocktails to:

Let us know what you think.

More will follow.
