I recorded a cover of Cupid de Locke for a Smashing Pumpkins cover song contest last fall but I didn't submit it. I listened to it recently and cleaned it up some so I thought I'd share it with you guys and gals.

It's a fun song to play, I took elements from the album version, remix and the Double Door rehearsal...and added a big muff solo.

do something about the clipping. (or is that soundcloud's fault?)

not sure if you're looking for constructive criticism, but here it is anyway. your vocals are the weak point. they are not bad per se, but they are not to the level of your instrumentation (which is great).

You should skip every other consonant

in order to sound like bolly, you need to drop every other consonant and overuse a terrible vibrato (pretty much sound like dying when singing the hard parts of a song)

I'm not sure...I record on an old computer using audacity, then I convert it to wav and put it on a flash drive and then put it on my laptop. There's a big volume difference between the two computers so I have to guess when fixing the volume. The computer is louder than my laptop so I decrease the volume of the track before putting it on my laptop.

It's kinda easy to record the guitars but super difficult to record vocals, especially when they're over electric guitars. It's a shame because I can sing pretty well, it's just the equipment I'm using sucks and not really meant for what I'm doing. It's a little shitty mic that came with the computer 14 years ago. I need to upgrade.

Big Muff!

I wasn't really trying to sing like him. I can do a pretty good Billy though.

I like it!

good job, good effort.
