Making of an Album Episode 4 : Making an Album in a Month (Part 1of2)
Hello there, Welcome to the 4th instalment in our special presentation 'Making of an Album', where Andy and Nick break down the details on music making in the 2020's, and how easy it is to do now. For the month of May 2022 Cosmic Bos took on the 'Album in a Month' challenge put on by Lights and Lines Independent record label, and subsequently produced a 12 track album called '2 A.M, it's Mission Time', which is out now https://cosmicbos.bandcamp.com/album/2-a-m-its-mission-time Wisely, throughout the album in a month process, Andy kept a diary of what was going on, and the Brothers filmed all of the recording session so that ample video footage of the album creation existed. You can see some of this already in the video's we put out for 'Isle of Avalon', 'Money Pwease' and 'Whatever You Say It Is, It Isn't'. This podcast represents the first half of both the album, and the diary kept for the month, and takes you through the first half of what we did. There will be an accompanying blog to this episode which will have more waffle about it should you wish to read more. The Cosmic Blog Part 2 coming next month.

Each artist was also given the option to submit a single for one of the prizes which would be put to the public to vote on a favourite! Listen to the playlist and vote for your favourite here: VOTING FORM Please don't judge anyone's work based on recording quality - We did not ask artists to master their projects for final release due to time restraints! Instead think about things like songwriting, instrumentation, creativity, and how it makes you feel 😀 The singles are ordered by date of submission, and amazingly there are lots of lovely accidental runs where tracks next to each other work really well together, forming sections and moods in the playlist that we probably couldn't have planned if we tried! When you've voted why not share the playlist and ask some friends to do the same. Well done to everyone who completed the challenge - you are awesome!

Making of an Album Episode 3: Alternative Writing Techniques
Welcome to Episode 3 of our Making of an Album series For this episode, Nick and Andy (Cosmic Bos) take you through a selection of alternative writing techniques, discussing The Beatles contribution to the world of songwriting, in particular their later more experimental work, to the general explosion of alternative techniques of music creation that came about in the 1960's. After that, Cosmic Bos turn their attention to their own writing techniques, breaking down the improvisation process, following the trajectory of 'Rainbow Appearing', a song improvised last year in the 3rd full improvisation session (Summadelica), through to it's development for live performance and preparing the song to be an album contender.  After improvisation comes improv-revisation, the basis of the first two seasons of Cosmic Bos Improv Music Podcast, where the music was improvised and then revised in the edit. The boys discuss this and play an example song 'Hold Me in Slow Motion'. After Improv-revisation comes Improv Squared, Cosmic Bos's current alternative writing technique, essentially a mash up of improvisation and improv-revisation. Nick and Andy talk you through this with an example song 'Badder Decisions' from their Improv Squared album - Petit Champignon de Lumiere  https://cosmicbos.bandcamp.com/album/improv-squared-petite-champignon-de-lumiere To conclude the episode, Nick and Andy put together a brand new improv squared song called 'The More You Learn, The Less You Know', a video for which is available. The Instrumental version of 'The More You Learn, The Less You Know' will be available on bandcamp for you to come up with you own vocals to if you so please. If you wish to participate in future Improv Squared shenanigans please email us at cosmicbos@gmail.com  Please like, share, comment and subscribe Peace and Infinite Love Cosmic Bos

Improv Squared : Petite Champignon de Lumiere
Cosmic Bos present to you Improv Squared: Petite Champignon de Lumiere Andy and Nick oversee the journey through the improvised (and then re-improvised) lands, with special guests : Joe Philogene (tracks 1,7 & 10), Dayne Howcroft (tracks 2 & 11), Chris Mace (tracks 5 & 6), Donny Stax (track 8), Ram Dass (track 10) and the Cosmic Bos Family Choir (track 1). Tracklist: Champignon, Lumiere Faded Memories Astral Underwear Sir, France is 'cross the Sea, See Vaccine Back is Back Badder Decisions Magic Fun Guy Ensemble Story Talking Frog Forever Bruised So what the heck is improv squared? Well, it's where we improvise a bit of music, and then improvise over that, and then improv over it again. Sometimes we use pre-written lyrics as with Faded Memories (with lyrics by Dayne Howcroft), sometimes we write the lyrics later to go with the music (ala Back is Back), and other sometimes we work directly with an artist in co-creating the squared improv (ala Magic Fun Guy with Donny Stax). It's a wonderful new fun way to make music, and we want to share it with you. If you are a musician or singer, or writer, and you would like to get involved with the Improv Squared shenanigans then please email us at cosmicbos@gmail.com and we can begin the musical merging process.

Making of an Album Episode 2: Traditional Writing Techniques
Welcome to Episode 2 of our Making of an Album series This episode is about writing, in particular, traditional forms of song writing, examining the songwriting process from the angle of songwriters. Nick and Andy (Cosmic Bos) collectively have several hundred songs to their names, and here they breakdown the fundamentals of songwriting, examining structure and form, before writing a song in front of your very ears. Visited several times throughout the episode, Nick and Andy sat over two sessions and wrote a song from start to finish. Here we try to show you the creative process in its raw state. Nick and Andy also talk about the history of songwriting, as well as their own personal histories of songwriting, including several examples from their songbooks. The first proper song you hear in this episode is Astral Underwear, a song that Cosmic Bos created using their new musical construction method, Improv Squared (More on this in the next episode). In the middle of the episode you are treated to two songs from Andy and Nicks songbooks. Love Defined is by Andy Jackson and is about his wife Spontaneous Plan is by Nick Jackson and is about his wife Both songs are available on Cosmic Bos From the Songbook (2020) Email cosmicbos@gmail.com with your favourite wife The episode concludes with our other double A side single 'Forever Bruised', which is acoustically written music by Andy and Nick over a haunting poem by Dayne Howcroft Thanks for listening Please like, share and subscribe for more musical goodness

It was a wonderful afternoon of musical exploration, and here for your pleasure is the whole thing, including some of the intros and outros that usually get cut off. The words of wisdoms for this episode where lovingly borrowed from YouTube, with Charlie Chaplin's speech being from the film The Great Dictator (1940) and available on youtube many times, with music accompanying it. Nelson Mandela's speech from his release from prison in 1990 also comes from youtube and shares far to many similarities to Chaplin's speech from 50 years before. Which leads us to Greta Thunberg from December 2019 addressing the UN on Climate Change, with echos of both Chaplin and Mandela. So as not to feel too down and out about the state of the world and the people that patrol it, the final Words of Wisdom comes from Ram Dass, an ever reliable source of great wisdom. The full Ram Dass speech can be found on the Here and Now podcast, link to the specific episode right here. https://beherenownetwork.com/ram-dass-love-incarnation/ All music and lyrics by Cosmic Bos 2021 Please like, share and subscribe Peace and infinite love Cosmic Bos

It's a Mike Schur Thing - Cosmic Bos
Cosmic Bos Podcast Season 3 episode 3 Andy and Nick from Cosmic Bos, sit down to discuss the career of Michael Schur, focusing mainly on the 4 TV shows on which he was a main writer and creator, following his journey from The Office: An American Workplace, to the Parks and Recreation department of Pawnee, to the police precinct of Brooklyn 99 and finally ending up in The Good Place. #TheOffice #ParksandRec #Brooklyn99 #TheGoodPlace Cosmic Bos are from the UK, so subsequently are not quite as acquainted with Mike Schur's earlier career on Saturday Night Live, but they are big fans of the creative work being done by that extremely talented group of people. This discussion by the Bos boys is not a comprehensive study of Mikes career, more like a couple of fanboys gushing over how amazing they think he is. Mike Schur has worked with some of the finest talent in America, from megastars like Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell and Ted Danson to super talents like Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Nick Kroll and Chris Pratt. Mike has been involved in some of the funniest and most heartwarming television of the last 16 years, and we just want to celebrate that and look forward to what he has next for us all. So thanks Mike, you are a legend and we love you #MikeSchurThing #MikeSchur #CosmicBos #Podcast Please like, share and subscribe, and check out our other work which is music based, improvised mainly, with some sweet music videos and lots of tunes for your ears Songs featured in this episode: We Are The Workers Love Defined Get Up to Get Down Hello Demons Infinite Possibilities Club All songs by Cosmic Bos, available on #Spotify #iTunes #Amazon etc. all of them places and many many more

It's self reflective time with Cosmic Bos, into the 3rd year of improv podcasting, we take some time to chat about ourselves as no one has invited us anywhere to talk about ourselves, so we are doing it for ourselves. Nick, Andy and Macey go down memory lane for a bit, chat to Cilla Black (when they can get her out of the bathroom), Jethro goes looking for Jeffrey and Macey reveals he is moving on from Cosmic Bos to further musical endeavours. We wish you all the luck in the world Macey and he will be included in many a Bos thing still to come, big thank you to Macey for everything he has done for the project, we love you man.

Ep.17: Magic Eye Can Believe In (ft. Anya Louisa and Ben Bluebird)
Ep.17: Magic Eye Can Believe In ft. Anya Louisa and Ben Bluebird Tracklist: Waiting Aim Wicker Bells Never Ending Summer Eyes Feral Girl It's Not Gonna Go Well Rear View Mirror Ben's Shiny Car Witching Hour Beautiful Stories Grey Clouds Came and Took the Summer Away All music improvised by Chris Mace, Nick Jackson, Andy Jackson, Ben Bluebird and Anya Louisa Revised and mastered by Chris Mace, Nick Jackson and Andy Jackson Season 3 starts with a magic trick, watch as we improvise and then revise an entire album from one days jamming session. It's the same trick we have now pulled 17 times, but it's a good trick and it has a vastly different outcome every time, so, ta dah!  Anya Louisa brings a whole new dimension to the Cosmic Bos set up, and Ben Bluebird spices up the music and vocal atmosphere just lovelily, big thanks to them both. We tackle the big questions on everyones minds, like, is magic real? do Magicians need dating apps specially designed for their illusionist needs? How should you rub your wicker bells so as not to get blisters on your fingers? All these questions and more won't be answered in this podcast, but they might get discussed, maybe. At least you have 12 improv songs with beautiful vocals by Anya to enjoy. Please like, share and subscribe All the love in the multiverse Cosmic Bos
