I received an email this morning saying that the organiser didn't think we were good enough at the gig he saw us at. This was our first ever gig. AT our second gig, people were coming up and saying how we were as good as any of the other bands, one of which was signed. I'm really pissed off. Apparently we 'weren't tight enough'. This is something that's worried me. At the gigs I've been noticing that our drummer's timing isn't very good, and this has also been ntoiced by other musicians in the audience(the main audience don't tend to notice these things, musicians do though). So, I've proposed we get our old drummer back, although he is a cock, he is a bloody good drummer, OR we get another guy I know who is also very good. For some reason my band picked a beginner of only 9 months(without consulting me, or auditioning the other people i knew) to be in a band where everyone else has been playing nearly 5 years. He just isn't good enough, and has cost us our place at one of the biggest music events in York, with record company representitives present.
