Writing process update

I know I’ve said I would give you more news about the band and the writing process, but I tend to write more often on Twitter than here. Sorry!

Right now, we have around three songs that would be ready to be tested live and another three that are almost ready. We’ll try to book a show as soon as we have enough material to last at least 30 minutes. 

Follow me on Twitter @AyotteVanessa or on Instagram @vanessayotte if you want to have more update on Velvet Noise!!

Can’t wait to show you our hard work =D 

Rock on!

Vanessa

It’s been a while!

Hello tumblr I’m back!

I know it’s been a while since I wrote something down here and I apologize for it. 

I just wanted you to know that I’m working very hard on my music project “Velvet Noise” with two of my good friends and I’ll try to keep you all updated here and on my Twitter account (@AyotteVanessa). 

I’m really excited about it and since I got some kind of subvention to help the project (would be too long to explain here) I know we’re gonna take it to a whole new level now. So according to my plan, we’ll record our first EP  in September and we’ll try to schedule some shows to test our material live. 

See ya soon!! =)

Vanessa

P.S Don’t forget to check out my other band www.connektmusic.com: our first album is now available for free streaming on the website! Thanks a lot!

How to Tour in a Band or Whateverby Thor Harris
1-Don’t Complain. Bitching, moaning, whining is tour cancer. If something is wrong fix it or shut the fuck up you fucking dick. goddamn.
2-If you fart, claim it.
3-Don’t Lose shit. Everybody loses shit. Don’t fucking do it. Asshole.
4-Don’t fuck anyone in the band. There are tons of people to fuck who are not in this band. Dumbass.
5-If you feel like shit all the time, drink less beer at the gig. You will play better & feel better. What are you… a child? Some have the endurance for self abuse. Most don’t.
6-Remember the soundman’s name. He will do a better job.
7- Eat oranges. Cures constipation & prevents colds.
8-Masturbate. Duh… Where & when? Be creative. You’re an artist right?
9-If YOU can’t carry your suitcase 3 blocks, it’s too goddamn big.
10-Respect public space in the van. Don’t clutter, you Fuck.
11-If you borrow something, return it. Not Fucked Up.
12-Do not let the promoter dick you or talk you out of the guarantee. If there were not enuf people there, it’s their fault.
13- Driver picks the music.
14-One navigator only (usually sitting shotgun). Everyone else shut the fuck up.
15-Soundcheck is for checking sounds. Shut the fuck up while everyone else is checking.
16-Don’t wander off. Let someone know where you are.
17-Clean up after yourself. What are you… a goddamn toddler?
18-Touring makes everyone bi-polar. Ride the waves as best you can and remember, moods pass. So don’t make any snap decisions or declarations when you are drunk or insane.
19-Fast food is Poison.
20-The guestlist is for friends, family & people you might want to fuck. Everyone else can pay. They have day jobs.
21- Don’t evaluate your whole life while you’re sitting in a janitor closet waiting to go on. You think you’re above having shitty days at work? Shut up & do your goddamn job.
This list was written under the influence of lots of esspresso & anti-depressants while on tour w/ such greats as Shearwater, Swans, Smog, Lisa Germano, Angels of Light, Bill Callahan & many more. I hope this list will help you get along w/ your co-workers whatever your job is. Contributions to the list by Jordan Geiger, Kimberly Burke, Brian Orloff, Brian Phillips Celebrity Gang Bang, Kevin Schneider, Jonathan Meiburg, Michael Gira and some other folks.
Thanks for not being an asshole, Thor Harris
