Song Blog: “Starting a Band”

“Starting a Band” began as some chicken scratchings for a bit of stand-up. At some point, I remembered how I don’t like talking on stage all that much and it became my 2nd “radio play.” It was the last track added to American Chipfunk.


The premise is that I am in deep outer space with no one to talk to but my spaceship’s artificial intelligence. I don’t remotely remember why the AI is called “Slim 5000.” That doesn’t even sound like a name fit for a PC. I really hope there isn’t a band out there called “Cleavage,” because if I ever do start a band, that’s the name I want. Enjoy the free MP3 or don’t!

 

The "moose on fire" comes, of course, from the classic film "Knowing," which nobody nothered to see.

 

Calling All Zombies!

If you want to help out and have your voice to be heard on my new album, listen up…

Mixdowns for my new album, American Chipfunk, are nearly complete, but when I listened to it, I felt like it needed a sketch to break the songs up. I remembered an old screenplay I’d written that was mostly dialogue between four survivors of a zombie epidemic. You know I love zombies. If you don’t know how much I love zombies, have a listen to an older song about how much I literally love zombies:


<a href="http://rhunekincaid.bandcamp.com/track/zombie-mamacita">Zombie Mamacita by Rhune Kincaid</a>

I turned my old screenplay into a radio play. Y’know,  like the old-time radio show adventures from the 40’s like The Shadow. The sketch it includes my favorite part of any zombie soundscape, the ever-present Zombie Moan ™.

I’m not gonna lie. It’s a pretty scary sounding horde. But it could be scarier. That’s where you come in. If you are reading this, you are invited to be part of the horde. Just record yourself doing two minutes of your best zombie moan and send it as an attachment to info@rhunekincaid.com. In return, you’ll get a credit on the album and the satisfaction of knowing you were part of the best zombie moan of all-time. Don’t forget to include the name you want credited. Send them in by 11:59 pm on April 18th, 2010, or you’re just another shambling zombie with no direction.

Before you do, let me give a couple of tips on being a good zombie:

  1. 1. The most important thing you can do as a zombie is lose all inhibition. A laughing zombie is not a scary zombie.
  2. 2. Make it a *.wav, *.mp3 or *.aif in the highest quality setting you can.
  3. 3. It takes all kinds of zombies, moaners, gurglers, coughers, hackers, wheezers, bleeders, chokers and garblers to make up a horde, mix it up!
  4. 4. Don’t move around. Don’t get that into it. That messes up the recording, and it’s weird.
  5. 5. Decide whether or not you want people to think you’re crazy. I didn’t warn my roommates, I just set up the mic and went. I do that kind of thing a lot though, so they probably just thought my singing sounded worse than usual.
  6. 6. Try not to sound like Ludo from Labyrinth. We already have that covered.

Don't sound like Ludo, or he'll come beat his royalties out of you.

That just about covers it. Now get busy moaning!

New Album, New Artwork, New Site

Firstly, welcome to the new RhuneKincaid.com. As you can see it is a bit more bloggish. Blogs are so hot right now. This will be the new home for all things MusiComedy… the saloon of choice for the Six-String Stand-Up… Rhune’s “Home Page” so to speak. Up above you can find everything you loved (or hated) about the old site. Videos, performance dates, mp3s, store links, social media links, etc… But now, you’ll also get frequent witticisms, musings, complaining, wankery, nonsense and good ol’ fashioned time-wasting content.

A new album is in the works and it will be called, “American Chipfunk.” You can check out the artwork below. A lot of people might be wondering, “What is an American Chipfunk?” I can answer that. It’s an album so funky, that it is a new species. It’s genus species is acousti-funky. It has stripes around it’s eyes, which is how you can tell it is not a squirrel. It still likes nuts.
