Yeah? Yeah!… Jeah! Look what I randomly found while digging through old emails of all places. Big Ol’ Cookie to whomever can name our special guest vocalists in this remix, except not really.

Look What I Found: Throwin’ This $#!+ Down

January 21st, 2011

Look What I Found: Throwin’ This $#!+ Down =OR= Joe’s Gonna Kill Me…

Well, what did I find this weekend? Well… back in ‘aught-five during the recording sessions of 3LP Joe and I thought it would be a terrific idea to record a(nother) rap track (the first one being Rednecks Attempting Poetry). We literally wrote and recorded it at the same time – isn’t that how all rap is made? Well on top of that catastrophe I thought another smashing plan would be to remix this song, over and over, and to remix RAP several times as well. What we end up with is a 22 track collection with a handful of copyright infringements and a Simpsons reference or two. Here are the original tag lines I wrote up in ’05. Tracks and images are below.

Look What I Found: The Inaugural Post

January 9th, 2011

So… As per usual I’ve gone a year without posting anything. Good for me! So, in my infinite need to revisit the past I’ve been going through literally hundreds of discs; going through old songs, videos, images, lyrics, session files on all kinds of things Pig (and Pig related). I’ve hit a lot of stuff that I had completely forgotten about. So what should I do with all of this junk? Put it back? Burn it? Sell it? pffftttt… Upload it of course – ’cause you know, the interwebs aren’t already clogged with meaningless data and postings by self-righteous megalomaniacs. So here’s my first contribution to the pile.

First off, here’s a song that was completely eradicated from my brain several years ago. Typically, in the old days, for any given song either Joe or I would write all of the lyrics and music. This is an example of just the opposite. Joe had written lyrics for 2 or 3 songs and gave them to me to write music for (or maybe I took them from him – not sure how that went down), this is one of those songs. Annoyingly, I have no idea where the lyrics went, and of course we didn’t record any vocals. This is an “all-FL Studio” recording, it’s really just my arrangements for the song programmed with some synth instruments. Here’s Give Up.

Question: what happens when you decide to record a Nirvana cover and start by mapping it out in FL Studio but half way through you loose interest and decide that instead of recording actual instruments and vocals you’ll leave in all of the synth instruments and throw in a handful of samples from The Simpsons and call it a night? Answer: The Simpsons Love Buzz

That’s it,
enjoy! experience!

New Tapes Added

January 30th, 2010

Wow, went over 1 year without an update and now two in one month! Just a quick update: we’ve added 2 new tapes to the tapes section. Lots of acoustic goodness this time! Tape 3 is the Barn Tape #3 from The Three Little Pigs which was recorded on two different dates, one being acoustic (I think we broke a string or something on the electric). The second tape is only 7 tracks. The first 3 are the very first LastKall demos, the “3 Man Jam” versions. The last four are acoustic demos by (me) TJ, 3 untitled instrumentals and a track called “We All Fall Down” that I wrote a long time ago (recorded in 2005) and have only recorded once (so far :P).

Check back soon (or follow me on Twitter: @webbtj) for updates including “what’s next.” I’ve got a few things coming up… stay tuned!

OINK!

new site

January 4th, 2010

just a quick update to point out the obvious… we’ve got a new site design up and running. We’ve also started adding some “Tapes” in a new section of the site. As I mentioned in my last post (over a year ago), I found some tapes and have started dubbing them over to digital formats. So far I’ve dubbed four tapes, three are Three Little Pigs jamming tapes from 2003 and a fourth is a LastKall jamming tape that also includes a few acoustic demos I recorded in 2005. I’ve uploaded two of the Pig tapes so far. Stay tuned for more (not another year!).

merry christmas & happy holidays from 3lp & the pigs

December 23rd, 2008

As some of you may be aware, just about every year we here a Pig Central try to do a little something to give back to those who have supported us in the past, or to anyone who would just like some free tuneage. Over the last few years we’ve offered up goodies like the original instrumental demos from the 3LP album, or TJ’s track “Santa Cave” (an homage to a legendary festive character that appears just about this time of year every year in the great city of Parrsborough, Nova Scotia). This year will be no different.

I first have to admit that, just like my Christmas shopping, I can never seem to get everything done in time, so there will still be more gifts trickling in after the holidays and into the New Year. My original hope was to offer, simply put, everything! I have been and will continue to upload everything I can dig up by 3LP, The Three Little Pigs, LastKall, Hard Limit, and myself. As anyone who knows me personally knows, Faith and I recently bought a house, and in the move I came across a box with dozens of old Hi8 and audio cassette tapes, as well as dozens of CDs and DVDs with live recordings, sessions, jam sessions and everything else. So what we’re offering up is a portion of what will become available over the next little while. I’ll highlight what is currently uploaded and try my best to go over what is coming in future installments.

From 3LP we have the debut self titled album (in Flac format), as well as a DVD ISO image of the first show we played at Mount Saint Vincent University (the Acoustic Show with Ryan). There are also several video clips from, what I called, “The Reunion Jam” back in September. It was myself, Joe, Jake, Aron and John, mainly jamming on some covers, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Chili Peppers and of course Southtown! As for what’s to come from 3LP, the second show we did at the Mount as a DVD ISO image, as well as the “Remix” album that has been in the works forever (anyone want a mixing job?).

Most people will want to stop at the 3LP stuff since most of the rest of this stuff is either poorly recorded, not very good or both. Next we have offerings from The Three Little Pigs. First we have the two “Studio Albums” from the Pigs, Screaming and Clamorous. These are both offered in Flac format and each directory also contains a “bonus” sub-directory, these bonus folders contain MP3s, videos files, lyrics and more. These folders are the complete contents of the bonus portions of the albums and tend not to “function properly” anywhere but the CDs they came from (the media in them, however, does work fine). Next we have the two Compilation Albums Pigorous and Piglatin. Pigorous is an album of alternate versions (demos, remixes, live versions, acoustic versions, etc.) of every track on Clamorous. Pig Latin is a compilation of demos, remixes, live tracks (including new tracks), acoustic versions and a new studio track (Truth). There is also the 1-take 1-ders demos, which was the Pigs very first recording session. Included are all 9 instrumental demos, plus TJ’s 5 vocal demos and Joe’s 2 vocal demos. The we get into some live stuff, both Acoustic and Electric. For Acoustic we have the Raw Tour [Edit] (which does not include the covers songs played) and the Raw 2our (featuring Ryan Willigar). The Raw 2our also includes 4 bonus tracks, take from one of the “Barn Tapes” (more on those in a minute). There are also two live electric shows, Live at PRHS – May 12, 2004 and Live at the Five Islands Fire Hall – Saturday, August 16, 2003. The PRHS show is the first of two we did with two other bands from Parrsboro, Odd Man’s Out and Economic Eruption. As for what is to come from the Pigs, there are still a handful of live shows to upload, some live shows on video, the Raw 3our as well as the Raw Tour [Not Edited]. One other thing coming from the pigs will be the Barn Tapes, like I said, I found several Hi8 and audio tapes, and quite a few of them are the Pigs jamming. Some sessions have guests and other people in the barn with us while we jammed. There are a few “one-off” songs that we never made it onto an album, and there are some very early and different versions of some songs including several songs from the 3LP album.

The LastKall demo EP is also available. In the future I plan to upload the Hard Limit recordings (which was the remains of LastKall, myself and John) which includes an EP, a few alternate versions/remixes and a few live acoustic tracks. I’ll also be sharing several instrumental tracks that were intended to be LastKall and/or Hard Limit tracks.

I’ve also uploaded a few of my own tracks from my first (failed) attempt at a solo project. The mixing and vocals on these tracks are terrible, but they’re there for the taking. Included is the “album” of 23 tracks and 30 “Out-Takes” including alternate versions, covers, and other tracks. I’ll also be posting some instrumental tracks.

I’ll also be posting some other stuff, tracks from the failed “Days Anew” project (myself Joe and Ryan) some old jamming tapes and home recordings (pre Pigs stuff).

Well that’s it for now, please feel free to enjoy as much, or as little of our music as you like. Merry Christmas from 3LP, The Three Little Pigs & Co.
