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.
