Hi. It's Joe.
I just got done with an action packed day at work. I am ready to go home, but I thought I would blast out a 10 minute blog post before I do.
Tonight is the last official night of FAWM, as I mentioned. I could possibly write a song, and I may very well might. But I cannot guarantee I will be successful, so do not hold your breath.
I am just as inclined to practice jazz piano and get caught up on some Welsh.
Today I had lunch with co-FAWMer and future band mate Brian. Although we are both opinionated about the mechanics of bands, we also think alike as far as great idea. So I think it will be promising.
Some day, I would like to have just a single band that satisfies all my rocking needs. This band would have the following characteristics:
1. High energy rock-n-roll a la Cowboy Mouth.
2. A large repertoire of choice covers and originals.
3. A house party performance model.
4. A regular practice schedule.
5. A power trio, but with rotational instrumentation.
Once I get good at piano, I would like to be able to play both bass or piano in this elusive hypothetical band.
I have two band brands I need to find worthy products (bands) for. GUPPY EFFECT needs a new guitar/drum combo. I seem to leave pairs of drummers and guitarists in my wake, who work well together, like Wes and MG. But any time I lose one of the two, I end up losing both because they gel together over time.
I would also like to re-brand the JEEBUS PREEBUS moniker with new people. That one could be a power quartet. I think that would be alright. I asked these other dudes I have been jamming with if they would be cool adopting that brand. They weren't. So it is up in the air.
I might rebrand it as a 3-chord punk rock operation. That would be fun. All punk rock all the time, both originals and good covers, such as the following:
And many many more.
