UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming response to this, it has been turned into a super-mega-ultra collab. Refer to the following:

Tentative roster:
Guitars, Drums, Arrangement, Lyrics – Level 99
Vocals - Luiza
Alto Saxophone – Cyril the Wolf
Tenor Saxophone – Xenon Odyssey
Trumpet - Swann
Trombone, Brass Arrangement – PrototypeRaptor
Trombone – HitoriJaNai
Bass – DeathBySpoon
Mixing services – Avaris

Information for those involved in this mix: Once PR gets all the parts written down, he will get them to me and they will be distributed. Then just get me your recordings via email or hosting service like mediafire, and I will take care of the placement and then send it off to Avaris for mixing. Bass should just get me the stuff whenever possible.

Even though there is no specific due date, I'd love to have this done around Christmas-time. I know at least one of the brass players wont have their mic until that time, but if everyone else can get stuff in before then, that'd be awesome. To be able to have this ready by around MAGFest would be INSANE, but I'm not going to put too much pressure on it. Thank you, everyone.

We are The OverClocked Plaid Muffins.

-------------------------------------------------------------

cyrilthewolf is doing the vocals for this, a ska version of Gourmet Race. The vocals are missing but it's pretty obvious where they go, I wrote the lyrics to go along with the lead of the original tune.

My WIP: http://www.mediafire.com/?gjt0kwutzxt
Original song (so you can hear where the lead is):

Lyrics:

Ska Buffet (All you can eat) (Gourmet Race Type 2)
-----------------
I am eating food, sweet and tasty dishes, dude
It is loads of fun but all these calories are bad for you
Chinese, sushi please, Spanish, Thai Food, it's all good!
Shove it all in my mouth and I will give you cash

Chips and salsa, peanut butter, tenderloin and rack of lamb
Microwaving me some kettle corn and the tv dinners are being baked now
Giant burgers and burritos, deli meats and lots of cheese
Bar-be-ques and large potato salad, I'll eat everything!

I'll clear out all the buffets in every city in no time
Most grocery stores have posted "no pink marshmallow" entry signs
But let's disregard these warnings and digest every last bit
From frozen food and the bakery to snacks, sodas and chips
So let's hit up all the drive-thrus and convenience stores near here
My jaw ain't chewing something now, starvation is to be feared
For without a constant stream of eats I'll likely to just die
cause I'm Kirby, bitch, and I need food so GET ME FUCKING FRENCH FRIES!

*ska break*

Deep fried cookies, monster cherries , french-fried onions from the can
Only veggies if they're soaked in oil and even then I'd rather eat raw cream cheese
Deep dish pizza, shrimp tempura, crispy flat bread drenched in lard
I don't care if I'm to big to transport, roll me to the foods

I'll clear out all the buffets in every city in no time
Most grocery stores have posted "no pink marshmallow" entry signs
But let's disregard these warnings and digest every last bit
From frozen food and the bakery to snacks, sodas and chips
So let's hit up all the drive-thrus and convenience stores near here
My jaw ain't chewing something now, starvation is to be feared
Why hold back all you inner cravings, restraining for today
When you could eat up the whole world, this ain't no fucking gourmet!
----------------------------------------

I've been sitting on this song about a month and it's getting close to done. Thoughts? Mind you: the brass will probably be changed before the final version.

the brass will probably be changed before the final version.


If Brad does not play sax on this, I'm getting a microphone for Christmas so you'll get your saxophonage on.

Also: MOAR HORNS. that 26 seconds was a cock-tease, man; where da horns at at the end?

everything = gravy my man

Haha thanks for the feedback, Hitori, Crulex and BP. I'm eagerly awaiting cyril's vocals as well.

Xenon: Brad's not slated to do sax for this. I originally was gonna do this song solo until I realized my voice absolutely sucks, which is when I approached Starla for vox. She declined, and then I went to cyril and he not only offered the vocals but said he could probably do a sax-ditty in there as well. If he doesn't end up doing it, I'll surely come to you. Now if only I could find people who play other brass to totally fill out the instrumentation, I'd be set. And I'll be honest: I spent an hour last night right before going to bed completely redoing the brass and....then Sonar crashed while freezing a track. I hadn't saved, so now I have the Sonar AGAIN set to autosave every 2 changes. I'll try to go back and make the same changes whenever I can, because I did add brass all throughout just to cover until the vocals arrive, and there was huge brass at the end. I know, I'm teasing you now. :tomatoface:

That's awesome you're getting a mic for xmas too!

Sweeeeeeet. I think Fratto plays the trombone, so you might wanna ask and see if he'd like/is available to lay down some riddims. Now leaves you a trumpet playa...

I've played trumpet for something like 16 years? I'm not JJT but I can handle this.

Transpose it down 1 half step, and send me it.

...or don't even tranpose it, but it'd make my life easier.

I don't know how well trumpet will record but...I'm up to try it.

Haha okay, whoa, totally did not expect this kind of reception to the WIP. You know, there's really no such thing as "good sampled brass" for this kind of style, so what the hell! Let's get this super-mega-collab going! If y'all are gonna do some brass for it, I'll expect y'all to do writing for your instruments that would be much better than what I had planned. I'm pretty sure just one of you should write the parts for ALL of you, so things all sound good, but first let's start by listing who's doing what:

Vocals: cyrilthewolf
guitars, drums, main arrangement: Level 99
Sax players: cyrilthewolf and Xenon Odyssey
Trumpet player: Ramaniscence
Trombone players: PrototypeRaptor and HitoriJaNai

Fratto hasn't posted here yet and Luke's not confident in his ability, so unless Fratto comes and really REALLY wants to get in on this or Luke has a change of heart, I'll leave it to PR and Hitori if he can figure it out.

Looking at that list...holy crap, wow. Thanks guys! I always joked around about starting a ska band, but damn that is a tasty line-up even if it's for just one song. Rama, what I can do is transpose the song down half a step for you to play, and then take your part and pitch-stretch it up. I hope that would sound decent....hmm...

So, which among you feels like writing all the brass parts for everyone? Also, I just talked to Avaris, and he's willing to take on the task of mastering everyone's live parts so that they sound as similarly-mixed as possible.

1 half step


wat isn't it a whole step?

I could do horn parts but I'd definately have to wait until after the semester is over (I don't know what kind of time-frame we're looking at here).

Trumpets (at least mine) are in the key of Bb.

BUT that means I need it transcribed UP, doesn't it?. Way to be paying attention, self.

But yea I completely forgot we have all kinds of correction and stuff now.

Just send me whatever, I'll play it <3

Okay, sat down and figured it out. As long as I can get my mic to stand straight and put it in the right area, you should have me in on this. :D

Always wanted to do this song on the trombone... had no idea this would be how. :razz:

Honestly, the time-frame for this is "whenever we can get to it". I have a ton of project mixes I'm working on currently, and this one is definitely one I want to finish but don't feel that it needs to be SUBBEDRIGHTNOWZOMG, so whatever time-frame works for people is fine. I'd rather have this done RIGHT as opposed to done FAST, as this is the first time I've worked with a possible full-brass section I for-sure don't want to waste the opportunity. So, Rama's down, Xenon's down for after the semester/when he gets his mic, still waiting to hear who wants to tackle writing the parts? :-o

Edit: and Hitori is definitely down, so that's wonderful. Whenever we sub this, we should talk about using a pseudoname to cover our group as opposed to possibly having, like, eight people credited on one mix. More on that later, though!

I have quite a bit of knowledge with scoring for these instruments, so, if you'd like me to have a stab at it, I'd be more than willing.

Unfortunately, I have a brass quintet to finish first, but perhaps that could be slightly delayed...haha oh, school work...

Anyway, I'd need to know the style you want - I'm getting a very streetlight manifesto vibe from this...(IMHO)
Although, if the vocals were in the track it would make this sound 100x more cohesive - any knowledge of when they'll be done?

BTW, I think I know a bari player, if nobody here could cover that.

I've got no problem with that, really. PR is likely more experienced (and by likely, I mean totally), and I'm willing to work with whatever he comes up with. :-o

Y'know, this really is a ska buffet now, isn't it?

Heh, guess it's a little obvious that they're probably one of my favorite ska bands, eh? The only one I can think of that I love more are The Skoidats. But anyways, yes yes YES! Streetlight-vibe for this all the way. If you can get that style of brass in there, you have no idea how awesome that would be.

PrototypeRaptor, I'll leave the brass scoring in your hands. If you can talk to your bari-player as well, go for it. I'll send cyrilthewolf a PM today asking when he thinks he can get the vocals done by.

And yes, Hitori, way to state the obvious joke at hand, lol.

Cheers to Stevo and the gang for what seems like a collaboration of huge proportion!
Looking forward to how the song will turn out.
