So, we had another band practice last night and, boy, do we suck.
The bass player actually showed up (albeit stoned on painkillers, methinks), the guitarist claimed he was having trouble singing because of a cold (that ain’t it, baby) and I couldn’t stay in tempo on anything over 120 BPM (and even that was a challenge).
Afterward, the guitarist asked what our goals were for the band (play clubs, parties, for friends)? I suggested my personal goal was to a) play in tempo and, b) not completely suck while doing so. They laughed.
Here’s some real music to balance my karma:
All For One, One For All
Big props again to Eclectic Grooves for doing it the right way. Most recently, they’ve dropped some scribbles on Neutral Milk Hotel (one of the all-time great band names). More to my style (believe it or not, fellow babies), you’ll find a killer track rolling from Max Roach called Another Valley, which I’ve not heard in years. You’ll find it at the bottom of a post called Things on the Horizon. Play on, EG!
