A Dime A SomgLove it it's punk rock! You can't go wrong with any arrangement. Do the one that feels natural! Punk rock is punk rock no need to worry about the little things just let her rip. It's already right there in the pocket!
EnergeticFirst off I like the energy and the lyrics. I have to confess I laughed in a good way hearing the song. There are obvious deficiencies in the vocal delivery that can certainly be fixed in the studio along with the guitar tuning. That said it's still a fun song. Whether it can do well commercially is doubtful I'm sure it's a hit in the clubs. I used to produce a lot of bands like yours and this is the kind of open page that is fun to work with. Keep going Zap and don't give up your innocence.
i remember the' 60 !!! i like itVery nice song and very nice Band. Whit this song and this style of to play, i remember the rock of the beat generation of west coast, California, surfers of these years. This song is nice and i like it.
Ohhh nice...Good song in the development stage: I couldn't quite get all the lyrics but I do like the arrangement, instrumentation and tune. The verse-melody combo has touches of classic punk in there... all good influences with some great garage guitar. Would give a higher mark but it's a bit too lo-fi to hear the lyrics well enough; all-in-all, very good Zap & The Wires - get it recorded in the studio!
A Dime & A SongThis rehearsal really can take your body and mind! The band is playing with vitality and it seems that they are having a great time of fun. I liked the sound a bunch! I would say the song is ready to bang heads!
This sounds like garage punk!This sounds like garage punk! But this may supposed to be so... garage production, i don't know how to improve that, place two mics in the rehearsal room and hope the best... in this case I miss the bass drum - would mike that at least. But all in all it has that dirty garage punk sound which fits well to that song, guitars from one side and voice and drums from the other. But on the other hand a professional recording would be a good experience...
Like old CBGB's timesStart the play button and you will hear some loud and likly snotty Punk Rock. Sound like bands as Sham69 live in the CBGB's. Pure live sound direct from stage. I like it pure and straight sound. Regards STERBT from germany
Old school Punk soundIf you dig the old school punk sound of screaming guitars and Johnny Rotten vocals, Zap & the Wires got it covered. I thought the tune was very reminiscent of the sex pistols, Ramones era. I had to strain to hear the vocals on this rough mix but thought the overall tune was very cool......and I'm a hard rock guy. Keep it up.......You've got a good sound!
A DIME & A SONGIM SORRY GUYS THIS IS A VERY HARD TO HEAR SONG THERE IS HARDLY ANY LEVEL UNTIL THE LEAD GUITAR SOLO YOU CAN HEAR POTENTIAL BUT TO BE HONEST WITHOUT HEARING THE LYRICS CLEARLY IT IS VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS THE CENTRAL THEME HERE MUSICALLY ALL YOU CAN REALLY HERE IS THE GUITAR AND DRUMS THERE IS NOTA LOT OF BASS IN THIS MIX IM SURE IT SOUNDS GREAT LIVE TRY TO GET A STUDIO VERSION OF THIS SONG THAT WOULD BE MY RECOMMENDATION
Might get you somewhereThis sounds like it was recorded live in a pub or basement somewhere. A nice raw punk edge but it is very difficult to hear everything like one would like to. It flows well and has a good start and body, the ending could use a little work. It would be nice to hear a studio cut in which more than 1 mic in the back of the room is used maybe even two. If the distant sound was done on purpose it does the band a disservice.
Penny For Your ThoughtsInteresting throwback to the 1960's and the Rolling Stones or bands of a similar style. Always interesting to hear indie singers and bands who are trying to create a specific sound for their style. A little British. The singer kinda gets lost in the shuffle here, though I'm not sure that's necessarily a bad thing. The gargly singing is unique but not really my cup of tea. Probably a great bar band.
undervalued at a dime...Zap and The Wires brings us A Dime and a Song (Rock Version) albeit the song is more dance and pop oriented than that of rock itself. It has familiar tones to that of Stray Cats or Little Stevie and the disciples of soul... its a little short at just less than 3 minutes but it has a great mix and an easy to dance to tempo, not too fast and not too slow. Worth more than a dime... maybe even a quarter! :P
