we have a couple next week. if you happen to be local then why not ask facebook about it? it knows these things: THIS then THIS. it’s not much but it will be interesting to play some of these songs in front of those human things. see what they think. what’s funny is i really don’t know how i’ll react to the presence of said humans. am i meant to say “WOOO WE’RE MISTA PINE APPOOLL WOOO” between each song? whilst doing a splits style power-stance with one foot on an uncomfortably high amp?
anyway… money is insanely tight at the moment so i may have to borrow some gear and not drink… but not drinking is a good idea. i need my finger accuracy. perhaps i should be prospecting for more contracts myself and updating this site rather than putting all my time into this band as a band. that said, playing with a band at full volume is more fun than i expected, i’m not a natural leader and i don’t find it easy to impose my will onto them… even if all the songs are my work and they’re literally asking “what should i do here?”… lessons…… interesting lessons.
all useful skills i’m sure.
oh also i’m seeing they might be giants play soon. that should be interesting. they inspired me at various points. surreal silly is very much a theme i enjoy and took on board from them. “lets write a song about a metaphor which we can’t quite remember”.
blergerflarrg maybe i should record some more rehearsals and upload them to soundcloud again just for something for my tens of visitors here to listen to. things are quiet on this internet based side right now but i’m far from doing nothing. honest. scouts honour.
