I have reworked these songs (I have about 10) a MILLION TIMES over. I still am not pleased with it totally. Thinking of really trying something different. What, though? There are just not enough hours in the day to be creative.
I have disappeared, yes.
As some of you know, my first project, Amphibious Assault, released a record in 2003, and I had mentioned that I wanted to do something special to commemorate the 10th anniversary. At the moment I am scouring the ‘scrap pile’ of discarded AA ‘songs’ (most are not songs, just melodies…what constitutes a song??!). I want to release some here. For free. Just cause I love thee. One promising one was supposed to be on On Better Days.. but I scrapped it due to it annoying the shit out of me. It’s bad when your own song annoys you. Anyways, I always say a fresh pair of ears can revamp any song so I hope to tweak it and get over my annoying perfectionism and just let the chips fall where they may.
I ebb in and out of music mode because I am making some pretty big changes - moving, possibly more school, possibly dusting off my acting face, new material, etc, etc..all in the effort to expand my empire (yes, hellbent on it might I add). Y’all know how I roll..and that’s all over the place.
Don’t miss the Manic Mondays Halloween Special on TKS Radio 31st of October (NOT a Monday!) 8-9 pm EST where Signor Draco and I will always entertain (or try to..) and never disappoint. Visit www.tksradio.com and join us on the chat.
At the same time whilst scouring the AA dung pile I am still writing that new stuff, and surprise surprise it sounds like neither AA OR my solo stuff. I can’t help it if I am conduit for my muses who cannot make their minds - a bit like the Golden Girls of Muses. Nah, I kid: It leans more towards AA style than solo stuff but much more subdued, non-aggressive, and ‘gothy’. Must be the rain. This is the first time I am writing 50/50 hardware and software so since I am a manual reading type gal it takes longer.
I will try and be more active on Facebook I promise!! Visit me anytime on twitter though..@fallonbowman. :P
<3 and rockets,
The music cupid has struck me finally and I have begun crafting the new stuff. It has been more than a year since Human, Conditional and I feel its time to start writing again. I posted the question on my facebook page (facebook.com/FallonBowman)! about whether or not it should be an AA release or FB release…and well I can never influence these things it just comes out.
So far its very very electro. Meoooooooow.
Long time no…speak. Post. Whatever.
Hope all is well - right now I am locked out of my FB so no updates there :( Hopefully FB will get that resolved (thanks to the f**kers who did it…i’ll hunt you down!)
I had posted on the AA FB that 2013 will mark the 10 year anniversary of District Six. I am still brainstorming as to what awesomeness will have to happen to commemorate that. Also more than 1 year has passed since the release of Human, Conditional. I am pleased with its reception considering no support for it really,(and thank you SO much to those that continually support me..you know how you are *ehem* *cough* pretty much everyone that hangs out at MM with Draco and I) but still feel I have a looooot of growing to do. Still working on the collab with Sean @Produkt (clearly both him and I are very much the perfectionists so this may take a while) also hoping to get started on the other Vocal House/Electechnotronic project I talked about last year but a lot of the time these things get sidelined by life…you know how it is. I also for fun started a 90s rock tribute band with my grrl @sanguinolent and another long time friend, both London, ON expats…expect a lot of Spooky Rueben and Veruca Salt covers complete with lederhosen and other silly outfits. I just miss playing for the reason why I originally did it - for the love maaaaan. We have a name, but still need to figure out if its taken or not, and since I am LOCKED OUT OF F**KIN FACEBOOK I can’t do much.
Doing quite a bit of writing (non-musical) lately. Yes, I write the storiez sometimes. I’ve been reading quite a bit of Victorian Lit lately so I dunno maybe it’ll come out as some sort of steampunk murder mystery about a foot fetishist shoe shiner who falls in love with Jack the Ripper after he shines his shoes. (*actual storyline..don’t steal it bro) It’s funny when I get creative it can come out in so many different ways: plays, short stories, paintings…sometimes I wonder when the music inspiration is going to happen since that has eluded me for a while now. It’s very discouraging.
BTW - No Manic Mondays (Draco and I’s monthly bonanza @ www.tksradio.com) this month - I’ll be going to DUBAAAAIIIII for work. Draco and I have elected to have an Arabian themed show and I will report on how interesting Dubai is and how many camels I managed to steal.
Hoping to within the next month or so get some new pics up and change a few things. I’m sure staring at the same photos is boring :P
Also wanted to give a shoutout and thanks to UAOMradio.com(@uaomradio) who will be doing a SPECIAL on me, in APRIL! More details to come when I get them.
Want lots more updates? Don’t forget to follow me on twitter @fallonbowman!
Happy New Year to you all. 2012 has started off not too bad for me, and I am currently programming what to do next with the music and with life!
Currently I am trying to upgrade my brain skills (aka go back to school), but I foresee the rock in my future…just haven’t set a date yet.
And for those of you asking for tour dates…I am still planning on doing that bike tour! I kid you not!
Please note CDs are STILL available for purchase if you haven’t got any of my releases. Help a po’ motha out and buy one.
I hope 2012 is treating you well: since we survived ‘the end’ I think we are doing just fine, EH?
Go on over to twitterland and follow me. I tweet tasty treats.
No Manic Mondays today good folks. Draco and I have opted to do a Holiday Special with more tomfoolery.
Gearing up for the holidays, why not buy the gift that keeps on giving? Music. I know, a foreign concept these days, but help out indie artists! It’s the best gift you can give.
Good Sunday afternoon!
2011 is winding down; with a lot of things going on in my life, juggling everything is hard sometimes. You know how it is, don’t you? Education-ing, working, music-ing, entertaining, socializing, (how many more -ings?). But alas, we have a special edition of Manic Mondays tomorrow 8 PM EST! Join Draco and myself for nonsense like usual and I dare you to try to tolerate our blabbering.

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween weekend!
…come on. It’s free for girls, there may or may not be whips or being being tied up and that’s worth it in itself, and there is rock.
rock(whips) > sitting at home.
Show starts at 9, we are on at 11:15, and bars are open until 4 am!
To live in bitterness will only snuff out the flame inside you. I find myself, like an old lady on a rocking chair watching the world go by, becoming increasingly reflective as of late. Both good and bad, as you can imagine, because with reflection comes the realization of certain truths, and sometimes the truth hurts, right? Day after day…what are the joys in life? Sometimes we forget. What does it all MEAN?!?!
What am I on about! Let’s get to the rock. We got a show coming up this Saturday for Nuit Blanche! Doors at 9, admission is free for ladies! Inconceivable!
Come on out, seriously folks! We wanna rock to a full house.
A crazy year so far. Human, Conditional released to a warm reception, and AA still going strong! Who would have thought?
Finally Mr. Tracy aka 1/4 of Produkt (winner of the Collab with Fallon contest) and I have begun finally the song we will collaborate on. It sounds bloody awesome if I may say. So excited to be matched up with such a talented lad.
Too bad about the Ottawa show - as always, life has thrown things at me that you know..you gotta deal with it or it could come back to haunt you :) It will be reschedule for a later date, so sorry to all those that planned to come out.
Please note you can still buy AA’s cd on the side bar below - I had some emails from people still asking where to pick em up (we are almost coming up on the 10 yr anniversary of District Six ALREADY people. Think about that) Maybe a reunion tour is in order? (see below)
I am still too poor to tour, so I was exploring the idea of doing it completely by bike with a trailer. Actually, last week I saw a band set up in the middle of the street inside a UHaul truck and rocking out pretty hard. It amassed a large crowd. These days you have to think outside the box, so biking your tour isn’t so outrageous. Let’s work this idea out.
And uh…Screech. Just because. I don’t own this picture.
Please come out to the October 1st show at the Bovine Sex Club, it’s Nuit Blanche, an all night contemporary art event here in Toronto, and there may be whips and ball gags from the event photo, and this means this is an event you cannot miss. Note: I do not own the above equipment. Check out the facebook event page here.
Lots of love, whips, and nuit blanche,
