B/L complains about clams coming from me..Not saying I don't generate any, but this is a band that sends around a setlist a week before the gig and we just show up to play. We generally don't do a bad job but we sound like a band that doesn't rehearse. This last one contained 3 or 4 songs that no one in the band had played before, as well as some relatively complicated tunes. This morning i get a text from the guy saying I need to clean things up as I was "throwing clams left and right and the second set was particularly cringe worthy". Listening back there are some here and there by me, especially on songs I am less familiar with, but everyone in that band is making mistakes here and there. My argument is that people can practice these tunes all day and all night at home on their own, but unless there is actually face to face practice sessions on a routine basis where these tunes are played and mistakes are ironed out that kind of stuff is going to continue to happen. The guy basically disagrees with that using the argument that practice will make us tighter but won't fix clams. I don't even remember the last time we were all in a room together that was not at a gig. Probably the last time we had any kind of real practice was late Spring/early summer.
