To say that last night was just fun would be doing it a grave injustice... last night was THE BEST!!! Our new singer Tony pulled through like a champ, and everyone was really impressed with him. To do what he did in the short time we had to work with him was simply amazing. Cheers to you bro, and to many more shows just like this one! Someone told Pitt that the show was filmed for the Nicole Sligar show Your Underground, and I'd love to see the footage... I wonder if you could even see us through all the fog that Schwab had going on around us while we played! You would of thought by the crowd's reaction and by the strobe lights and fog machine that we were the headliners! And I do think that we had a bigger / better pit than either the $wingin' Utter$ / Youth Brigade did, but it could have been the booze though. Uhmm... other than that... we got a new shirt design for the Halloween show with Curl Up And Die ... we might be doing an un-announced secret show somewhere in the City and now we're gonna focus on getting a proper demo done. Hopefully Tony isn't as hard to work with as Bryan was! heh heh heh
Wowsers... the week is finally through... and all I can say is that we are sooooooo ready for this show. At one time we had a plan to use either Dan or Bryan to sing for us, but Tony has worked out so friggin' good that neither one of them is gonna be needed. We've been practicing our asses off, and the set we have ready for you is gonna blow you away. Thanks to all our pals who've been hanging around the Clubhouse this week. It makes all the hours we spend there all the easier, even though we spend most of our time playing video games and listening to music! And speaking of pals... what was up with that kid "David Mitchell" on the message board? Heh heh heh At first I thought it was Rick... but I don't think he cares enough to go to the all the trouble. Anyways, if you haven't read it you should... it's quite funny. We got lots of merch... come up and say hello and hang out with some Genuine ROCK STARS!!!
The Psychedelic Furs show was pretty fun... only because it was a band outing, not for the crappy music the band was playing. We've been working really hard on trying to get our shit together before the Youth Brigade / $wingin' Utter$ show... we've been practicing until like 4 in the morning every fucking day! Our new singer Tony is working out sooooo good it's not even funny. It's like he's one of us, ya know? Hanging out with the guy just assured it. We're going to be printing up some new merch this week, as well as trying to see how many more PA speakers we can cram into our practice space! Roxie was totally right about that damn Sonic The Hedgehog game stopping productivity... now that we've discovered the Dr. Mario-type game on it... we'll never get anything done! I also added the Curl Up And Die Pictures from Utah...
Phooey! The hard as fuck work has begun. We're currently undergoing a major search for a new singer... and although we have an idea about what we want / demand from a singer, to find someone who actually fits the criteria is a whole different matter entirely. Me and Jesse and Roxie went halves on a killer JBL monitor from Guitar Center... thank Allah for employee discounts! We figured since we were gonna be trying out singers that it would be nice to be able to hear them, ya know? I heard about what happened at The Office Bar the other night... damn crazy Punk kids... and to the JACKASS that put a dent into our brand new tour van, you better pay up now! I still haven't gotten the Pictures from Utah back yet, but I did correct the story and it displays properly now. Other than that... I got nothing to say.
OK... while my personal life is disintegrating into nothing, on the band front we're doing OK I guess. We just finished playing 2 great shows with Curl Up And Die and after the next upcoming shows the search for a new singer begins. I'm totally happy that the split with Bryan is amicable... we ask A LOT from our singers, and it's not that easy to dedicate your life to this band 24-7... and add the fact that everyone in this band is an asshole and it doesn't help... LOL. Lots of people have stated that they wanna try out, so who knows? Our motto has always been that we always improve with changes no matter what, but jeesh... what does it take to get a kick ass singer in this town? Show Reviews are up... I haven't been reviewing anything CD wise 'cuz all I've been listening to is Johnny Cash... but I feel better now... I don't mourn the loss... I celebrate the Life. Uhhhm... more to come later?
