  1. Ok ok, its become a bit of a tradition here so i figured i should be apart of it too.

    My band played its first live show on Saturday (today is monday) and it went off without a hitch. Only one mistake but no-one noticed it. We have another show this friday.

    Its quite odd, we were all really really nervous on the way to the show, but as soon as we walked into the door and began to unload we were fine.

    odd

    ;)

    i'm gonna have to agree with brenden, mullets always make things more eventful. i bet you would of gotten tons of ladies after the show too. Well theres still time go shave the top and sides right away.

  6. I reckon! here SIZE=4]HE[/SIZE] is calling me a closest mullet when it is obvious he is trying to shift the focus off of him to me. lol

    Wonder if there is a Mullets Anonymous, although they wouldn't be very discreet would they?

    "hi my name is Brendan and i have had bad thoughts about getting a mullet, as you can see i have started growing mine.."

    JT: "We Feel your pain, group hug!?"

    :D:D

  8. My band played its second show on friday. One thing which is really annoying me now is sound guys. We had no fold backs for this gig, dunno why, they just weren't supplied, We stuffed a few songs in our set list up because the drummer just couldn't hear anything. I could barely hear the vocals, only heard what was bouncing off the back wall.

    On our first show the sound techie just wouldn't leave the faders alone, so many of the bands inc. mine had the sound cut out, then too much gain so a huge Woooooo! could be heard. BAD! and these people should have experience at doing this! Esp the guy on friday!

    :mad:

    Shocking.

    My daughter is growing a mullet. It's just growing in that way. My wife is so embarrassed. She looks "straight out the trailer."

  16. *holds up hands* Did i say that mullets were bad JT? nu ahh

    But i forgive you. lol Hug? lol

    :eek:

    Yes the shows, despite myself and band members complaining we were well recieved. Someone did a review of our gig on the radio two nights after and as quoted:

    "Random Chaos, was their second show, first time i had seen them, i thought they were quite good..[interuption by other announcer]

    "Good? i saw them for the Fury cd launch, they were quite Brilliant i thought"


    ahh ya see its hard being a star. :rolleyes:

  17. Ah stop braggin, merls.

    Congrats, but stop bragging. :D:p

    Damn.
    I needa join a new band outside of school and go gig around town. Maybe I'll get a good review or 2. But I don't listen to the radio or read the paper, nor do I have too much interest in the news on TV.
    Damn.

    I'd have to hear about myself through my friends, then. :p
     


  18. JT. You kinda DO have a mohawk mullet.
     
  19. If it makes anyone feel better about their hair, my hairstyle has been in my family for generations shure it looks allot better then a mullet or a pony tail/mohawk, but it is old and genetic.
     
  20. Now you've gone and said it!

    :eek: *Runs!*
