in january, my band got absolutely PANNED by a local press reviewer:
'At first, the consensus among my group was that they were terrible, offering nothing but sludgy sub-Hail to the Thief rock dirges and oceans of self-pity. The low point was the intro to the third or fourth song, which featured the bass player clapping away arrhythmically, as the singer caterwauled his way through some tortured vocal formulation-my mate described it as ‘Ryan Adams locked in a seal enclosure’. To be fair, the band picked up in the second half and showed some gift for close harmony, particularly on a couple of wordless choruses, but the set as a whole was a chore.'
thankfully his view seemed to be in a minority....fun times! anyway.....
said reviewer has just got in touch with me (a friend passed on my email address) asking me to play in his band! he doesn't know who i am and certainly doesn't know what band i'm in...
i'm going to have fun replying to this!
any suggestions for thigns to include in my reply welcome..
