glad to see the nolan sisters are essential wedding tunage elsewhere 8)
they deserve it!

honestly, that is the only song at family parties that gets me on the floor, not even the mighty abba have that power over me!

funky town is cool too. although my fave disco track of all time, georgio and donna summer, i feel love.
although im sure the full length 12" would be a little long for most wedding parties.


seeing as i have you here and you will know, do little boys at weddings feel the need to slide across floors on their knees? or is that just a uk thing?
at no other time do you see them do it, cant stop em at weddings!

As with analog drum machines, every hit is different. Also love the reverb on this. And the helmet mic.

Haha.. its the same all over... little brats...

I feel love.... does not work at weddings anymore and when someone requests that one my question to them is always ... are you a producer or a synth geek... the answer is usually 95% affirmative.. yes I am.. how did you know? :lol:

#1. All noises of wild life, kind of, reminding of all these cool creatures we share the planet with.

Small birds nesting locally, or like in the woods while gently pedalling road bike.
Passing cows and sheep and that kind of thing, domestic but still.

#2. A nice roaring car engine
Big american V8 or Porsche etc.

#3. A nicely saturated Hammond organ in a leslie

I used to have a nice biggun ( :scared: ). Think I got it at a Yoga fair. Not sure what happened to it :(

Tons of stuff on Youtube:

but nothing beats the experience of keeping the sound in motion, yourself :shrug:

It seems that Amazon have a selection, though make sure to read the reviews:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?url=search-a ... L94FCJZ690

This one seems to be a good choice - Small, but has a nice sound

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silent-Mind-Mi ... 776&sr=8-1

I might buy that one, myself. However, I am no expert. So maybe you might be better researching other options.

Ah, some excellent choices - particularly of beautiful birds and the Nolan sisters...

Always good to wake up to on a Monday morning before work :x


@Aloysius: dare you to make a tune using those 3 ''favourites'' of yours...

That noise a fruit machine makes when it spews loads of cash.

Three times.
