check out White Widdow www.whitewiddow.com the band has just released a 3 track demo cd.

 

If you like Roxus & the keyboard laden side of melodic rock then you should like White Widdow :)

 

any thoughts on these songs?

 

I love these guys, the guitarist really wails & thats something the beocme of a rarity in Melodic Rock in general.

Wow - can't believe bands like this are still coming out in 2009. Love the pomp keyboards. Remind me of Storyteller. Promising stuff, would definitely pick up a CD (think one is due in 2010).

Wow - you can't get much more mid/late 80's MR sound than that!- It's Very nice though - 'Cross To Bare' & 'Crimes Of Passion' especially. Dut dut keys aswell, surely not! - They remind me alot of Prophet and Biloxi (amongst others) from those 3 tracks. Agree too about that guitar 'Wail' - sounds excellent. Will definitely keep an eye out for this lot.

 

At least the drummer has moved on to something that sounds decent after the truly shocking 'The Deadthings', which I see he was previously a member.

Yeah, I like !! Really good stuff ! Thanks for the tip, Andre ! :drink:

 

Btw., the singer and the bass player were both in "The Deadthings" as well. Don't tell the Geoffadillo, though ! :lol:

Stop pumping up Jules' tyres, Andre. Yes I will get a copy to support the boys.

Yeah, Lindsay mentioned these guys the other day in another thread where I went a little wild about them, calling them the best band I've heard come out of Australia since Teargas. These three songs are excellent.

 

But how the hell do you buy the EP? The link goes direct to the myspace page and I can't see anywhere to buy it?! If these guys release a well produced CD (the lack of decent production was the thing that killed The Deadthings, imo) then this'll be marvelous!

Funny... I ran into Jules again this year at Rocklahoma and he gave me a copy of the demo. I'm really digging 2 of the three songs (the third isn't bad either). I hope this release sees the light of day because I thnk many here will like this. Don't let the Deadthings connection scare you away from this one... make sure and check it out.

 

PS ~ Geoff, I'm not sure you can actually buy a copy of this yet. Hope it isn't too long before more songs are recorded and this thing becomes available.

Just out of curiosity, is this the end of The Deadthings? Are they finished or is Jules doing both gigs?

Jules and Trash have been doing both for over a year now, so hopefully it's not the end of the Deadthings.

 

Pretty sure the EP launch was the weekend just passed, so you should be able to order it from them if you ask.

I'd be happy to see them both continue, but someone really, really needs to slap whoever is handling production on those Deadthings CDs with a cold fish. If they could replicate what they do live onto CD along with a beefy production job, we'd have something really nice on our hands.

AFAIK there are no plans for The Deadthings to end a they seem to be still in demand around various parts of the country.

Hope you've placed an order for the WW cd, it's on a very limited run from what I understand.

The promo CD's are all gone ! :(

 

But here is the MySpace message I received this morning. There is some hope still ......

 

============

 

 

Hi Bernd

 

 

Thanx for your interest, we don't have a CD available to purchase i'm sorry, there was some promo copies made which are all gone. We dont have much money, so we are using our money to record more songs rather than do a full CD production run. we are working towards a full album to be finished by the end of the year.

 

In the meantime we have just uploaded the three songs we recently finished for listening and after a couple more studio tweaks will have them available for free download with CD artwork in approx two weeks. The Artwork will be available for download with the three songs.

 

Thanx again!

 

Long live AOR!

 

Cheers,

Julez.

WW

Nice. I hope these songs make the debut and then I won't care about missing the EP. :)

Agreed, I would've liked to get a copy of the EP. I'm really looking forward to their album.

My 4 copies are looking fabulous, Bernd pm me we'll work out a trade or I'll send you for free coz of your kind offer many years back.

 

Hey A, are they silver pressed?

Someone told me they were cdrs. (which would make sense if they only did a run of a couple of hundred).

My guess would be CDRs. That is what Julez gave me when I ran into him at the Rocklahoma show.
