been playing for years - last night we did an acoustic short set of old punk tunes - where is my mind, search and destroy, touch me i'm sick, dr rock (the ween version not the motorhead one) and some originals...

been taking forever to get this band off the ground - still trying to find bass player, drummer just flaked out on last night (hence the acoustic set) so i dunno...

we did rock the f*#k out though ;-) totally...

Actually, our drummer is quite the opposite, he's always 15 minutes early to practice and the bass player and I have the nerve to bitch about that :-)

Yeah...That's just a phrase coined by Gram Parsons himself, even the annual Gram Parsons Festival in Josh is actually called The Cosmic American Music Festival...

Dear Dr. Spock,
I have a brother who happens to be a drummer. His only other job was serving cake at an after the movies joint by the theatre. He was fired for cutting the cakes to thick.
As he once succinctly said, It's the key of D... for DRUMS !

Cheers

cut the cake needs a crisp up beat, not thick, no wonder he got the boot.

Blitzo, totally cool pic. Wish I'd been 'round in the day. Bet they could have used a nice red rockin' tambourine. :D

▄ncle R´co!!!

Mostly "alt-countryish" stuff, if I had to put a label on it. Sometimes pretty



Sometimes dark



Usually both. I have been known to throw down War Pigs on the banjo, but not with this band. Only picked up the dobro after my talus break a year ago this week, but I am DIGGIN' it.

War Pigs on a banjo would be kinda cool. I'd like to hear that.
