Wow...a friend from decades back contacted me at facebook. He'd found 2 recordings of our band in 1984 on youtube. What a blast from the past ! Me on vocals doing some sort of judas priest style songs, but singing healthier than I do today...

COMPLETEY different voice to anything I ever remember having

A Judas Priest background with a Geddy Lee voice.

God, this brings back memories of my days in the 90's auditioning for garage bands. Let's see, I auditioned for Parchute, XLR8, and Razin' Cain. The most professional was Razin' Cain. The one with a link to celebrity was XLR8. The guitarist's name was George Chapin, nephew to Harry Chapin ("Cat's in the Cradle.) George used to play with Silverado in the late 80's. Dude was missing the ring finger on each hand but could shred as fast as Alex Lifeson (RUSH.)

Jeez, that made me feel young. And realize just how old I am. Thanks?

Couple of things Matt... First of all , I had no idea you were so experienced, I was born in 84 and here you were rockin' out during that year with a polished vocal performance, wow.

Second, your voice had a surprising clarity. Were you trained much at all, or was it just one of those natural talent things where the voice kind of just fell into place? I suppose if you're a natural tenor, those things might come more effortlessly, I know I was a natural baritone.

Funny Ronsw should mention that, the Geddy Lee thing came to mind a bit for me too, just in the cut and clarity of the voice, clear as a bell but it has a bit more body too, almost like an improvement. It has such a youthful exuberance to it, reminds me almost of earlier era Bowie with the diction and 'bright' sound.

The song was pretty catchy too, after hearing it I found it stuck in my head immediately afterward, you're right it seemed a punkier version of Judas Priest era metal.

Yeah, I think you must have been one of those guys that had it real early on. Me, I started without it, got pretty close to having it, then lost it completely, but I definitely think you had it.

I agree with Snejk, What have you been up to lately? I'd be interested in hearing the modern version. You say it's less healthy now? You think that's something you can get back to?

thanks a lot :P I didnt have the slightest clue about technique, I'd taken a handful of lessons and didnt understand what they were talking about at all. I was the guitarist who got lumbered with singing, cos nobody else wanted to. I was clearly really leaning into the twang instinctively, though, probably going by ear. It was much later, after getting into technique that I completely lost that twang lol Thats the danger of only half understanding shit. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing

True that, Matt. One can phrase it generally, too. Many is a beautiful voice ruined by "technique" and even schools of thought regarding singing.

You sounded more free and happy back then. Now, you hardly submit anything, having the years and experience and some of the newer "training" you now have.

So, if a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, the a lot of knowledge is totally brutal? How much knowledge is too much? These are the questions now plaguing my mind.

got to a point of download, but i can't find a program that plays a file with a "rar" file extension.

rar is the same as winzip, but better, e.g. it compresses files to much smaller files until youve downloaded it and unpack it (just click it):

You should probably have that app anyway, to make files for saving or sending much smaller. You can open them with winzip too, if you have that
