Makeshift Wings Demos: Volume 1

Sometimes a band get points for more than just musical ability. Not that Makeshift Wings are lacking in musical talent, it’s just that their age betrays them a little. For example, they get points for recording this entire album by themselves; they also get points for overall musical ability. Where they begin to lose points is with the vocals, which just aren’t tried and tested enough. The same criticism can be levelled at the lyrics, which could benefit from a little more life experience. All the right parts are here for a really good band, but good bands have paid their dues and Makeshift Wings just aren’t quite there yet. (Independent)
