Greyhound shots?

Hello blogfriends; especially you out there in America with a large archive of high-res photo’s. In the photo above SoWhat?, the band I play in for a couple of years now, as the bassplayer. Normally we have a lot of unpretentious fun playing covers from bands like Fleetwood Mac, Creedence, Amy Winehouse, Cranberries, etc. and songs like Zombie, Creep, Psycho Killer and Only happy when it rains… πŸ™‚ But now things are getting a bit more serious. We have recorded 6 songs written by our guitarist Jacques (in the middle). The goal is to get them on a CD; not to get rich, but most likely for family, friends and ourselfs. The title will be ‘Coming Home’; from one of the songs. And in that song is the phrase ‘..and the Greyhound to Detroit..’ And the idea is to put a photo of a Greyhound bus on the frontside of the CD cover. So my request is: if you have one, or more High Res photo’s of a Greyhound (older models..) bus, please mail it to me. There are lot’s of Greyhounds on the internet; but most of them are Low Res; and it feels a lot more sympathetic if the shot would come from one of you.. πŸ™‚ The one who sends the shot that makes it to the front of our CD cover, will get a CD when it’s finished… πŸ™‚ Curious what you will come up with; my E-mail is on top, in Contact.

Already thanks from:

  1. Wou dat ik kon helpen met zo’n foto. Helaas heb ik geen enkele greyhound bus foto in mijn archief.
    Veel geluk met je zoektocht !

    • Ik ben er ook nog nooit een tegen gekomen in BelgiΓ«… πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘βœ‹

  2. You guys sound great! Sorry, I’ve taken a number of trips on Greyhounds, but I don’t have a picture – not a bus. or dog, either. Very nice song!

    • Thanks a lot, Robert! Next time you take a Greyhound you will probably think of us.. πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘βœ‹

  3. I don’t have the photo but I’ll see what I can do.

  4. I don’t have a picture nor will I be able to get one, but I would be interested in a CD.

    • Hoi Danny; woon je nog in Friesland?.. πŸ˜ƒ We doen dit helemaal zelf, omdat we het leuk vinden. CD’s laten drukken wordt per CD pas betaalbaar bij een afname van 500 stuks… dat gaat onze enthousiaste hobby financiΓ«le middelen te boven. Eigenlijk hebben we over verkoop niet eens nagedacht.. πŸ˜ƒ Ik zal het ‘in de groep gooien’ Je staat in ieder geval boven aan de lijst, die er nog niet is. Dank voor je reactie! πŸ‘βœ‹

      • Mijn moeder woont in Leeuwarden, ik werk in Heerenveen, maar ik woon net buiten Friesland in Steenwijk.

        Dat begrijp ik en dat is helemaal logisch. Ik waardeer de eerste plek op de niet bestaande lijst

        • πŸ‘ Ik heb van 1979 tot 1986 in Leeuwarden gewoond; lerarenopleiding Ubbo Emmius; tekenen en handvaardigheid… maar was toen meer bezig met muziek maken. πŸ‘πŸ˜‚

          • Dus toen al veel met muziek bezig. Hoelang spelen jullie al samen muziek?

          • In de huidige band zit ik nu ongeveer 2 jaar (na ruim 30 jaar bandloos…) ; maar de band bestaat al veel langer.

          • OkΓ©, vet! Veel succes met alles!

  5. Sorry, can’t help you with the Greyhound photo, Harrie, but excellent to see another Duvel enthusiast!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Still got a few wild hairs left.. πŸ˜‚ Cheers Amigo! πŸ»βœ‹

    I hope you’ll get your greyhoundbus-shot! Nice track and of course you play the bas πŸ™‚ My brother do too!!

    • Me too. πŸ˜ƒ Thanks. What music does your brother play? I have visited Zweden once, in 2009. From a town called Orsa I still have the impression that all Swedes play hard rock…. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘βœ‹

      • Lena said:

        Well, your impression is quite right… we do love heavy metal in Sweden and my brother plays that kind of music but my family loves music of many kinds. I had family ouside of Orsa when I was a kid πŸ™‚

        • I was only joking. harrienijland.wordpress.com/2013/11/16/sweden-a-short-walk-in-orsa/ this was my post on Orsa, on my first blog.. πŸ˜ƒβœ‹

          • Lena said:

            Thank’s fot the link, you could almost think you’ve landed in the 70’th πŸ˜€ Great to see πŸ™‚

          • Thanks; there are more posts from our visit to Sweden around that one; in case you have to stay at home.. πŸ˜‚βœ‹

  7. No picture of a Greyhound… but two big thumbs up.

  8. Moises Ramos said:

    Very cool, but don’t have a picture though, hope you get one

  9. Great work – the voices are excellent, the mixing sounds very professional, and the bass player is fabulous. πŸ™‚ Joe enjoyed the clip too. He wants me to tell you that he applauds the song, the composition and melody – and your courage. It’s not your run-of-the-mill song, he says. And we both are impressed that you’re putting this out for everyone and anyone to listen to and react to. But we’re both wondering who would want to take a Greyhound to Detroit?? ‘-)
    Apparently, there’s a Greyhound bus station in a city about 45 minutes north of us but we don’t get up there often. Sorry I can’t supply a photo. Good luck with the project!

    • Thanks a lot. It’s a lot of fun. No photo’s yet; but we’ll think of something.. Cheers to both of you! πŸ‘βœ‹
