Urbans is a (yet another) band of which I’m a member. It started about two years ago, and is the most relaxed and gentle group of people I’ve ever had the chance to work with.
We rehearse at the drummer’s place, and recently we recorded there a demo. In order to do this we actually built a mini recording studio at the place, almost from scratch, and took it apart afterwards. It was a very interesting experience, and it gained us a nice demo, but next time we’re recording at my place, where the heavy machinary is.
Having fought my way to a basic mix of the thing, I also bothered and created a New Site for the band, from which the music can be downloaded.
