Title: The Vidiprinter - A Teenage Symphony to Pob
Post by: Tidepool Interlude on November 27, 2019, 05:45:31 AM
Greetings from Scotland,

I've lurked on this board for a number of years now and rarely ever post for fear of offending or making an idiot of myself so here goes...

I finished a record recently which took me quite a while to make because I'm incredibly lazy and incredibly slow and I'm never happy. Nor will you be. I have no social media presence which has made the job of self-promoting pretty much a non-starter.

To cut to the chase, a lot of the ideas in the songs (and the album title...) came, quite evidently, from my love of The Beach Boys (other artists were ripped off in the making of this record too!) so I thought if any one person might be interested in this record it might be a person on this board.

Anyway here it is: https://soundcloud.com/thevidiprinter/sets/a-teenage-symphony-to-pob (https://soundcloud.com/thevidiprinter/sets/a-teenage-symphony-to-pob)

Enjoy perhaps.

You are a very modest man, TI. Although I understand the bit about not wanting to appear foolish--I know that feeling well. :lol

You were right to post your album here at Smiley. I have it bookmarked for listening later today and tomorrow. Hopefully others will also lend it an ear.

Thanks for that, JK.

It would be great if they did. I hope you like some of it yourself.

Thanks for that, JK.

It sounds fantastic so far, from the masterstroke of the opening track onwards. The last track I heard was "Saturday Knight".

Every one a winner. You've clearly put an awful lot of work into this--and it shows!

I'll link it at the Steve Hoffman MB--they have a massive membership over there (I'm not on any of the social media either).   

Do you have the lyrics anywhere online?

Wow. Thanks again for the kind words. Glad you like it so far.

Yes, all of the lyrics can be found on the individual Soundcloud tracks.

Any links anywhere else are, of course, very much appreciated. I lurk on Hoffman too, from time to time, but I don't have a profile myself.

Thanks for pointing me at the lyrics (I should have looked a little further). They are very good in their own right.

I've now played the whole album and it hangs together very well. And every track has something to recommend it. I do hope others lend it an ear.

There's a lot going on in there, so I shall definltely be revisiting it soon. ;)

Great news. If you liked it then I have reached my "one person" I was hoping for. I'm happy with that!

Thanks again, JK
