    Well.... as most know im a drummer.. who picked up bass, just because I love the low end rhythm side of things; and to further myself as being tighter with a bassist.
    Well I just got a call from my longtime brian who has a ..very intresting "doom ska" band..
    The instrumentation is very different..The Time Meters are changing alot. They are very tight and very strict about practicing too. ;) Well 2 weeks ago I practiced with them and they liked the way i played. They pretty much go from a basic silly ska song, into a full on reggea interlude; then back into the ska type verse and then straight to
    blast beats..
    Its fun, because its very chalenging drumwise. The basslines are very jazzy too. Well Oblivious is on a long hiatus of playing gigs. I dont like to speculate very much, but I think the band will desolve by the summer. Which will free me up so i can play "alive at 5" ( the current working title of the band )

    ...well I love this..

    I talked to Brian(the guitarist). He called me and asked me to join the band. I was like "Heck ya!"
    Well.. we will be playing the new daisy this summer alot!... yes!

  5. My band started as a ska band of sorts...then mutated into a sorta acid loungecore band.

    It's actually pretty interesting.
  6. Sorry, no smart-ass remarks today, im too tired. But congrats. May you have happy jam sessions with your new band.

    flat broke right now... I got part of a kit in my parents basement, I'm gonna get it when I move into my new apartment. I just need some high hats... and a ride probably.
