Music Request

So, I am putting together the set list for the Bikers and Babes party and I need some disposable music. I don't want to run out and buy a bunch of Death Rock for one night ;)

Right now I have some White Zombie/Rob Zombie (mostly remixes), a band from Detroit called Crud, Chemlab, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, KMFDM, and some misc bands that I need to go through.

If people have some early Metallica, Judas Priest, Motley Crue, etc I could work out an exchange. When I used to listen to them CDs weren't out yet ;)

is sticking the MP3s somewhere accessible (with the understanding you'd delete them after) sufficient, or do you need the CDs themselves?
Apr. 17th, 2007 07:25 pm (UTC)
MP3s are what my mixing system takes so that will save me from ripping them down. I'll delete them after :)

Having gone through my CD case, we also have Monsters of Rock, Billy Idol, Def Leppard, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden.

Damn. I should clean that thing out more often. :)

Would AC/DC help? Can send tracks from a live album, most of the obvious hits.

And I am nearly ashamed to admit this, but what about Skynyrd?

Will accept Shriekback's "Big Night Music" in exchange without guilt because I KNOW I bought that but my copy seems to have disappeared.
Apr. 17th, 2007 07:24 pm (UTC)
I hate mixing live stuff, the crowd noise makes the transitions problematic. I actually do not have any Shriekback, only You Shriek ;)

I may just pick up the AC/DC box set since I really miss the older stuff.

Skynyrd could work.

Let me know which tracks you'd like most and best address for yousendit.
Apr. 17th, 2007 08:51 pm (UTC)
You can use the cilantrophobia.net address in my profile.

Free Bird! Beyond that I have no idea ;)

Hope it's not too much trouble to convert from m4a? That's what I have.

Sending most of what I consider the obvious radio hits.

In case the message function on yousendit doesn't work -- I currently want to get my hands on Rammstein's "Du Hast," NIN "Closer," Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People," and Lords of Acid "Pussy."

(yes, I have a habit of including songs-played-while-we-were-on-the-dance-floor in mixes I make for a certain person.)
Apr. 19th, 2007 01:31 pm (UTC)
I should have closer, and around 6 versions of pussy. I really should have Du Hast somewhere but I seem to remember looking before and not finding it.

I can't deal with m4a, every converter I can find is crippled until you pay and I will not pay for something unless I can hear a complete conversion. Do you know of any free ware converters which do not suck?

No, I don't, so I'll load WinAmp or something and rip from the CD again.
Apr. 19th, 2007 10:51 pm (UTC)
The best set of programs to use has got to be EAC and LAME. Exact Audio Copy will keep retrying scratched areas until a vote proves that it ripped correctly. Also the LAME audio codec does a really great job at compressing to MP3s.
Apr. 19th, 2007 10:53 pm (UTC)
yeah, but will they work on my Mac?
Apr. 19th, 2007 11:15 pm (UTC)

LAME will, just not those binaries. EAC is a PC program. I didn't know that Winamp was compiled for the Mac.
Apr. 19th, 2007 11:17 pm (UTC)
Allegedly this Mini will run Windows stuff with BootCamp -- and I thought I had WinAmp on the old G3 although I could be wrong.

I am not entirely clueful about computers, which is why I love my Mac so much.
Apr. 19th, 2007 11:20 pm (UTC)
so Itunes can't export in anything other than acc/m4a? I could have sworn someone got my MP3's right from ITunes.
Apr. 19th, 2007 11:23 pm (UTC)
I'll poke at it harder but it wasn't on the obvious dropdown menu.
Apr. 17th, 2007 08:40 pm (UTC)
I do have a few of AC/DC studio albums on CD:
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Highway to Hell
Back in Black

and For Those About to Rock
Apr. 17th, 2007 08:49 pm (UTC)
Sweet, We Salute You! Any chance I could either get you to loan them to me or have you rip them down to MP3 (128Kbit) and burn them to a CD/upload them to a server?
Apr. 17th, 2007 09:12 pm (UTC)
Loaning I can do - I don't have much server space to upload to. I have a flexible schedule this week though to do a drop-off.
Apr. 17th, 2007 09:15 pm (UTC)
I should be around my place Thursday night as well as the Diesel Cafe tonight. I have an interview scheduled with the Somerville Journal at 7:30 on Thursday so I can't leave but you could come over. Email me and I'll email my address and cell phone number back.

The only "metal" i have is Dream Theater (the files have "metal" in the genre tag; it sounds like Rush to me). And Judas Priest's "Johnny B. Goode."

...Motorcycle themed songs I'll fare a little better on, though I don't have "Leader of the Pack" or "Vincent Black Lightning." (I do have "Bat out of Hell.")

But I have no idea how those would fit into a death rock mix. (I know "Leader of the Pack" won't fit, but it's got a nice motorcycle-crash sound effect.) They're just what I think of for motorcycle music. ^_^ (If you find a copy of "Vincent Black Lightning," let me know; I don't have one.)

I better go before I use any more parentheses.

oooh, Meatloaf...His name was Robert Paulson!
Apr. 18th, 2007 06:14 pm (UTC)
I thought it was Marvin Lee Aday?

Actually I have "Leader of the Pack" too. :)
Apr. 18th, 2007 06:18 pm (UTC)
Marvin Lee Aday's stage name is 'Meat Loaf' His second album was 'Bat out of Hell'

Apr. 18th, 2007 06:21 pm (UTC)
With the big bad overproduced sound coming courtesy of Jim Steinman. :)

So who's Robert Paulson?
Apr. 19th, 2007 01:32 pm (UTC)
Meat Loaf's character in Fight Club.
Apr. 19th, 2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
Oh! *dawn breaks over Marblehead*
