The Dirty Records CD Release show has been moved from Skate City to Café Roma... it’s still 5 bucks, but for $10 dollars you get a copy of The Dirty Ones Compilation that we’re on! How cool is that? Come out and show your love for The Loud Pipes and for Dirty Records - Devon is a great guy and deserves all your support!
Fucking Hell! What a bad past few weeks I've been having! Not only on the home front (especially on the home front!), but also with my damn web site! You see, it's very hard to update your web site when you wake up one day and your computer tells you that it's unable to find an operating system. Now I have some educated guesses as to how this happened (Fuck you Spune), but it doesn't change the fact that I was majorly fucked and couldn't do a damn thing about it! Boooooooo. But Miss Roxie fixed my computer one night in a flurry of Newcastle's and Mint & Chip ice cream, and I decided to update it by installing Windows XP on it... which is taking some MAJOR getting used to. Special thanx to Jonathan for hooking me up with the Windows XP. He’s this really cool kid that I met many many moons ago when he was just a little nerd... and now he’s this video game nut who builds his own computers! Except for being really taller, he’s still the same, and he challenges all you Quake players out there to battle. He says he’ll slaughter any who dare face him... hahaha So since I lost everything from my old web site, I had to completely build it from scratch, which sucks big time. And on the band front, the release this Friday of The Dirty Ones CD Compilation is finally here! Woo Hoo! The first 2 songs on the compilation are from us (Wild Nights & Out Of Time) and Roxie tells me that they sound AWESOME!!! This is where the fun begins. With these recordings, and the ones we're still working on, we're gonna be playing all sorts of places we haven't played before, like the House Of Blues and maybe even the Joint! I suppose we could of used our friendships and connections to weasel our way onto a bill, but it's much more satisfying to do it on your own, which is something The Loud Pipes are all about. D.I.Y. doood! So hopefully we'll see you all at the gig on Friday, and please bear with me, as it will take some time to get everything back up on the web site. But I promise not to be down as long as Airbag used to be!
Well, a few updates to the site to mention... the most important being the Pictures that Jenn took of us at the Red White N Boom show... I think they came out pretty damn good myself! And I believe that she captured on film the only known proof that Roxie was actually there! If you look real hard you can see her to the right of the drum kit... heh heh. Yup. Bryan told me we finished 3 songs last week... Insurrection (with new words!), The Way and Wild Nights I believe... and that he’s getting married this Tuesday to some girl he’s been chatting with on line! Uh huh. Yeah. Whatever. I missed out on free Slurpees on Friday... boooooo! And Pitt looks like a dork in shorts and low cut shoes. Tell your Daddy to buy you some pants dude! Tony from The Top Fuel Café posted on The Loud Pipes message board a nice apology / explanation, and I’m not sure what happened with the whole Skratch Magazine thing... looking forward to the show with the Nekromantix on the 20th at the Huntridge... you all better be there! Even you Rick, you fucking jinx you! LOL
OK... once again, The Loud Pipes have a bit of free time on their hands, and I can only hope that something beautiful will come out of it! I know that I have tons of stuff to deal with on the home front, and the stuff on the band front is sooooo close to being done that it’s sickening just waiting! In case you didn’t notice on your way in here, we’re gonna be playing a CD Release show on Aug. 1st... let's just hope we finish our songs by then!
