Oh and we also released a new single from Dance of the Dead (which will be released next Friday on our Bandcamp page, and the following week on places like Amazon and iTunes)

Details will be provided soon on the followup album. Assassin, which will be our first as a five piece. In addition, it will be unlike anything you've heard before, and I don't mean just for us. Not to let the cat out of the bag, but think electro SMiLE....

Anyway, here it is

From the Deep

Generally, if you donít see a blue check mark on Twitter (which means itís officially verified) for a celebrity, itís fake. This isnít true in all cases, but most of the time. If there is a blue check though itís 100% guaranteed.

I misread that as ďAddiction ď. 😒 Well, I certainly AM addicted to music LOL

Oh man that was a nice mellow groove. Really dug the guitar and you have a nice voice. Iím reminded of something while I was listening but I just canít place it...

Wanderlust ,  that Buddy Holly song whoís name escapes me at the moment, and him doing My Sweet Lord live just so happen to be three of my favorite latter day Brian vocals
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Feel Flows box set on: May 23, 2020, 01:52:45 PM
Thereís blues folk and country and ROCK like a rolling stone

10  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Animate on: May 22, 2020, 04:18:59 PM
Here's our new single (from our upcoming album Dance of the Dead) Animate. We went for our usual blend of sci-fi horror influenced sounds, but this time our Brian Wilson influence is a bit more readily apparent.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

^ Awesome....will check it out later on today.

Also I just about finished the koto track I was working on Cool
12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: New Website (and band member) on: May 21, 2020, 06:46:38 PM
Anytime!

Just released a new song... weíll be putting out a new album shortly

13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why are BB albums so short? on: May 18, 2020, 12:08:02 AM
You may be right..it made have made him more obsessive in regards to edits and experimentation. I myself have been guilty of that over the years ...itís an easy trap to fall into. Bryan Ferry had the same issue , working on an album for years until scrapping it and releasing Mamouna instead, and that was with older digital technology . So yeah for Brian it may have made things worse. Good point
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Why are BB albums so short? on: May 17, 2020, 04:55:44 PM
Also the fact that this was before digital editing.  I imagine if Brian had access to todayís technology SMiLE wouldíve happened as planned.
15  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Danelectro 6 on BBs records - a video introduction on: May 15, 2020, 09:39:45 PM
Man this thread is fascinating . Iím learning a lot and itís making me want to go back and listen with a different ear, so to speak
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: is there a definitive bass list for David, Al and Brian during the 60's? on: May 15, 2020, 08:03:49 PM
I strongly wish that thereíd be reissues of the albums with accurate liner notes of who played what . Or at least as accurate as possible, for their entire career, collected in one easy to access spot, almost as bad as I would love to actually play around with the mixes ... for fun not to improve on what was done because that is impossible. More because Iím interested in hearing all of the little details .
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: Cover of on: May 15, 2020, 07:32:17 PM
That was amazing.... the harmonies were spot on and full of warmth
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: In Quarantine Vol. I by Dean Entwistle on: May 15, 2020, 07:27:49 PM
Dude this is INCREDIBLE....especially Cry of the Moon. I can definitely hear the Brian influence on regards to the chord progression. Absolutely beautiful. My wife and I are stunned listening right now
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: New Website (and band member) on: May 15, 2020, 06:54:30 PM
Uploaded a new compilation of stuff from our early years when our sound was quite different. Definitely less polished and less produced.


http://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/album/fear-2-stop-the-early-years-vol-1-2002-2005
It's so cool man, I love Peppermint Twist (well that one is on another album/EP but it's so freaking awesome) and Arcade Blooze, You're into something good man, good work!


Fun fact...there were porn samples used in Arcade Blooze (you can tell from the hi hat sounds....which aren't actually hi hats but something else entirely lol); that was Raymond's idea!
LOL, that's an strange and pretty awesome piece of trivia, that song is so great man, nice job!!!!!


Thankya! Weíd listened to 20/20 earlier in the day and I think All I Want To Do influenced us LOL
Oh yeah, the Denny Wilson b*nging someone tag

LOL thatís the one !
hahahahah, thanks for your like on my FB page, now I'm following your page!

😎  Oh and check your PMs... 😉

Gotta help our fellow artists ... thatís the way I look at it! Thatís the one thing I do like about music now; have earned very little money from it but I can still record whenever I want. Also thereís also more of a community type vibe now which is sweet
20  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: New Website (and band member) on: May 15, 2020, 06:51:30 PM
That means a lot to me. Weíve been doing this since 2001 (back when it was myself, my wife, and our friend Raymond) and (Iím dead serious) have recorded around 1000 songs (not a typo) over the years. We started to have some success but then Dana and I had Jaymie, and then Raymondís wife passed, then my strokes... so weíre just now at the point of going full throttle again.  We donít have any qualms about being successful in the commercial sense but that means little right now (although if we get a few buys I certainly wonít complain). Jaymie said sheís mostly interested in ďmaking works of art ď.

Works for me
Wow, you've been doing this for 19 years? that's so cool, you need to do something for your 20th anniversary!!!.
I have recorded a lot of songs too, that's why i believe that you've recorded a lot of tunes; so sad to hear about your friend's wife Sad.
I wish the best of the lucks to all of you! Good, good luck mate!!


Thanks Dean! We are planning something for our 20th but haven't worked out exactly what just yet.

Do you have a Bandcamp page too? If so I'd like to check it out Cool
Awesome! I hope that something goes more than amazing for you and your band!

https://deanentwistle.bandcamp.com - this is my Bandcamp, some of my sound is influenced by Clairo (She's my main inspiration in a lot of aspects), The Beach Boys, Queen, Bowie and Gershwin, in fact, I've released a new album with faux kotos, it's now on Bandcamp


Clairo? Sheís one of favorites out of anybody from the past 20 years (especially Bags)

Gonna check out your work later on tonight after Iím done working on a track. You have a great taste in music for sure. Looking forward to it!

I went ahead and tweeted a link to your page on my Twitter as well


Oh and I did end up using a koto sample on a track Iím working on after all 😎
Oh thanks a lot!
Oh that's cool, I'll be waiting to listen that track






Weíve used a koto in the past but not in a long time and after talking earlier the other day I finally found a home for it


Iím gonna take a short break for a little bit and thatíll give me time to listen. Hell I usually get inspired when I hear music I havenít heard before.
