For the past recent years, i.e since I left London I have seen a lot of major recording studios closing down….the latest one is Town House Studios, which closed last week.

Other major recording studios that have closed down for the past years..
Sarm East
Whitfield Street
Polar Studios (Sweden)
To name a few….I guess it’s because the changes in the music industry….I guess you can actually record your album in your bedroom studio…you need some form of DAW, a good pre-amp, a few diffenent mics, a soundcard and some speakers or headphones….

Tip Of The Day : Recordproduction.com loads of information about music recording studios

Tip Of The Day : Play.comA place to buy stuff….with free shipping


In 1993 Endless Shame made a cover version of Alphaville‘s Sounds Like A Melody, this track and some other tracks were sent to various recording companies in hunt for a recording deal. Our friend Jemma Myrberg was also singing on this track together with Mattias.

One day a man called Klas Lunding (link in Swedish) from Telegram Publishing phoned up and asked us if we were interested in a publishing deal, off-course we said yes! Klas Lunding later gave ‘us’ to Anders Mörén at Misty MusicPublishing.

We went to Stockholm to meet up with Klas and to sign the contract, while we were in Stockholm we drove around to various record companies to see if we could get a record deal. That didn’t happen 😉

We met Klas in the Galleria and at a record shop we had a coffee and chatted to him for about an hour! Since then we haven’t really seen Klas.

Fun Fact : Klas didn’t sign Ace Of Base

Tip Of The Day : Waldorf – Blofeld looks like an interesting synth

Today is Tuesday, and this means Endless Shame will be in the studio tonight, and we really need to rehearse before the Lund gig (on the 2nd of May) at Undercut.

Last week we completed the demo for one of our new songs called ”Pure”. We might play that song @ the Lund gig.

Tonight Mattias will be interviewed by Swedish Radio AF for the radio show Studio 101.
Studio 101 play synthpop, futurepop, EBM, new romantic, NDW, italo, electro, powernoise, industri, dark-electronic, goth, chip, among other things.

You can listen here (press the speaker of your choice on the left hand side). The show starts at 10pm Swedish time.

Tip Of The Day : Vote for Endless Shame to play at Siesta a musicfestival in Hässleholm

JFK

Well I thought I would post a list of some of the equipment used by Endless Shame in The Echo Room. (The Picture is taken from JFK-studio where ”Price Of Devotion” was recorded)

Well, this is what we use, but hopefully we can record here or here someday! 😀

Tip Of The Day : 99Musik a Swedish forum for music and muscitechnology.

I was browsing trough billboard.com and I was looking at who was @ No. 1, the soundtrack for Titanic!!! (It’s not my favorite movie…) Anyway further down on the list i found Savage Garden, who I, in that moment in time, found quite good. I actually bought that album. Though they are not my favorite band I still appreciate some of their songs….I was also listening a lot to Madonna’s ”Ray Of Light” produced by William Orbit. Loads of strange sounds ‘flying’ around in those songs. Very well produced. I actually met both of them a few years later when they were doing Music. (I will probably come back to this later) Excellent expirience. Interesting people.

Tip Of The Day : Karin Ström an old friend, also into music.

When Endless Shame begun thier carrer they played support act for 2 Unlimited on a pre lucia party in Kristianstad! This was in 1993!?

Endless Shame have also played a gig using parts of a Simple Minds audio rig.

Endless Shame also played the shortest gig ever when they had to leave the stage after about 30 seconds, there was some problems with the sound….Audio feedback was the one to blame. We did not enter the stage again….
