"Fast Songs" by Ryan from British Columbia, Canada by PJ Crittenden published on 2012/03/13 22:01:11 +0000 This CD came in the post to me at Dirty Water Records here in London, all the way from Canada, loose in an envelope. The covering letter said: "Hello. I like punk music. I have thousands of hours of singing practice. Singing is all I did in high school. I included in the envelope a CD of me singing, from a few years ago. I only had a one minute recorder on my computer so I sang fast. My regular style is slower. But I do enjoy singing fast. The songs are comprised of bands that have inspired me. I am looking for a band and have not had much success. I hope that by writing to record labels and including a CD of me singing might get me help. I do not play an instrument. I would like to make music. Please phone and mail me if interested." And upon listening to it, I decided it was such a work of genius that I had to share the sounds I heard. Unfortunately, this solo vocalist is based in small-town British Columbia, Canada, so a bit too far away for me to do much to assist him. If you're in his neck of the woods and seriously want to form a band with him then I'll put you in touch with each other.
