Shane Faubert’s Demo Page

Since just before the formation of the Cheepskates I have been making demos, and it’s time for the lo-fi, unproduced and somewhat naked Shane to appear in public. You can now download mp3s of my demos… play ‘em, trade ‘em, cover ‘em, make ‘em sound better, burn them onto CDs and give them to your friends. Do what you will with them – I just want this stuff out there… maybe some of you will be inspired enough to make your own demos and put them where we can all hear them. Goodness knows your recording setup will be better than mine was! That said, some of this stuff is pretty good.

For you completists out there… “real” studio versions of all but four of these songs eventually ended up on some kind of release by either the Cheepskates or Shane Faubert. “Boyfriend’s Heart” and “No” were admirably covered by the Masticators and the Tryfles (respectively). “C’Mon” and “So Do I” have never shown up anywhere before… have they?

I’m currently working on cleaning up a lot of demos recorded throughout my career (some of which are here, some of which I’d pretty much forgotten existed) and they will be coming out on Bam Balam.records sometime in the spring of 2014.

In my browser, clicking on the file plays it in a new window, right clicking begins the download process. Your mileage may vary.

Anymore I Wanna Hide Please Don’t Tell Anyone
Anyway I’ll Be Waiting Remember Changes
Backwards Boy In a New Way Sailing
Better Off Alone Innocent She’s the One
Boyfriend’s Heart Into the Wind So Do I
C’Mon It Won’t End With Me Someone Without You
Christmastime With You It’s Not Enough Something’s Wrong
Don’t Cry Just a Girl Star
Dream About Me Late for Tea Take It Easy
Echo Let Me Love You Take Your Time
Everytime You Change Lifeline That’s When I Say Goodbye
Good Times Light Show Wasting Time
Hold Me More Than This Watch Her Go
Home No Will You Be There Tomorrow
How Long Can It Rain Nothing Seems Right Yesterday’s Leaves
How Long Now I Know You
I Can Only Ophelia

    Les 3/4 de ces démos sont magnifiques. Ce sont probablement les meilleures chansons pop que j’ai entendu ces 10 dernières années…
