Bands that have made mistakes on recordings

A related story that is interesting (to me at least) is of Brad Fiedel was composing the Terminator theme... He wrote the melody by improvising over a percussion loop he'd recorded, but hadn't realised that he had stopped the end of the sequence a bit early. As a result, the bars are an awkward 13/16 time signature. But it's one of the best themes ever, so happy accidents and all that.  

And all whilst recording the most consecutive appearances in the English Premier League. Impressive.

:laughing: 

 

(As both a Spurs and Terminator fan - this similarity has always amused me).

I was listening to it thinking "what fucking weird pattern was I going for? Jesus christ."

No idea how it happened. I was supposed to fix it by shifting the vocal overdub backwards/forwards 4 beats, but I don't think I ever did...

We were lucky with Geller that the whole thing stayed perfectly in time despite glitching ahead and deleting 4 beats, otherwise we'd had have to have scrapped the whole take, and that was probably our best song IMO.

Folk still talking about St Anger.

I personally hate the production. It does have a few decent moments but there are also some real facepalm moments too.

I always thought that the lyrics sounded like they had been lifted straight out of some 15 year old metal kids journal.

 

As far as mistakes go, in Saturn's Children by Electric Wizard one of the guitarists rolls up the volume on their guitar a bar too early and turns it back down again in the last chorus.

I always imagined that song was the result of the record label stepping in and being like "sakes guys, another song about Satan, how's about you write something original?"  Couple of dabs of tipex on the lyric sheet, fuckin sorted.
