I don’t wanna Holiday In The Sun... well actually I do, if they could all be as fun as yesterday was at Desert Breeze Red White N Boom! Free food... tons of Red Bulls... booze everywhere for the taking... fireworks... yup... sure was a good way to spend the 4th of July. Met Hank’s brother Donnie, who took some amazing pictures of us (www.piratemate.com/loudpipes/). Hard to believe he’s related to Hank though, damn. I think it’s safe to say that we all had a good time, and phooey to anyone that didn’t! That Skater / BMX brawl was total bullshit, and the stuff with the cops after the Vandals got the plug pulled was a joke too... fucking cops got nothing better to do than mace a bunch of kids? Guess not. The Vandals sucked and were nothing to start a riot over... but they do have an AMAZING drummer! lol My computer totally crashed after I let some dickhead use it, and I had to break out the trusty ol' reliable lap top just to get the site updated with the Show Reviews. We got some $$$ to invest in some merch... look out for Loud Pipes underwear coming soon... tighty whiteys for the boys, thong panties for the girls. Uhhh, the recording is coming along slowly but surely... Bryan now wants to re-do ALL of his vocals with a new mic, but he did write some sick new words to Insurrection, so… I guess we'll give it a go and see if we can get more than 1 1/2 songs out of him this week. Hope to see everyone at the Bullet Train To Vegas show on Tuesday! And check out the message board and the gig listings... we got some GREAT shows coming up!
