A LOUD & LIVE video clip of "Watching Airships" from the very first Better Than The Book full-band rehearsal, BTTB and Jabun are now verified on Spotify + more updates!
Hi everyone and hope you're having a great week so far! I certainly am as I'm no longer ill in bed, so it's been back to the usual music making and practicing routines over here, though I'm still feeling restless wanting to do more ALL THE TIME! An especially inspired time working on the upcoming Jabun album has topped up the project's current duration to 44+ minutes of demos, and I've been working hard mixing this mystery cover song too which is going well! Onto the main news for this week I've got another Better Than The Book live video clip to share with you + some Spotify news as you can see from the post's title! Let's get started!
First on the news this week, here's a LIVE and LOUD video clip of "Watching Airships" from the very first Better Than The Book full-band rehearsal back in December! Now bear in mind this would have been the 2nd time EVER that we'd have played this song together (the first time being maybe half an hour before the video was taken), and it was our first day gelling as a full band too, so it's a little bit rough around the edges, but I thought it turned out pretty darn good and I hope you enjoy seeing the full BTTB live band in action! Check it out
Live band line-up:
Nick Standing: Composer, 1st guitar + lead vocals
Eamon Standing: 2nd guitar + backing vocals
Sam Brown: Bass + backing vocals
Andy Forman: Drums
Watching Airships and the rest of the One Small Step EP are available on all major digital distributors as well as the Better Than The Book Bandcamp page:
Or of course you can pick them up if you haven't already when you become a supporter on Patreon! Easy peasy with a side serving of the full Better Than The Book discography and more, and with the project going live, we could use all the support we can get to push it as far as possible! Come join the community:
6 more of these videos to come over the next 2 months, and it just keeps getting better from here (IMO)! Subscribe to the BTTB YouTube channel to get them fresh off the press, and I'll see you next week for another one!
Next and lastly on the news this week, some cool news as after being on the platform for a few years now, Better Than The Book and Jabun are now both verified on the global streaming platform Spotify! Check out the updated pages below complete with bio, extra photos and more:
BTTB - https://open.spotify.com/artist/4GUCmKQoIk3bNWGiXDGkrp
Jabun - https://open.spotify.com/artist/6Ig1iozkpNv4mOGHJFny73
The ONLY thing I wasn't able to update on them is the upcoming gigs sections, which are populated automatically by services such as Ticketmaster so I couldn't contribute to them manually. With that being the case, Head over to the BTTB website for the most up to date gig info:
(and I'll be sure to let you know if and when Jabun decides to go live too!)
Hope you enjoy the new pages and enjoy listening to my music on Spotify!
That's it for this week! Another BTTB full band live clip will be coming next time, and in the mean time I'll be practicing hard for the next full band meet-up while working on my current music projects and trying to get a solid practice routine sorted! Until the next post, I hope you have a great week of your own too and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio, Better Than The Book and my various projects! Take care!
Nick Standing; HurpADervish; Jabun!
