After another week of practice, here's a better version of Love Removal Machine at the proper speed. (1/30/10)

Here's Lil Devil by The Cult from our 1/30/10 practice

Here's a blues number from our 1/30/10 practice-Day of The Eagle by Robin Trower

30 years ago & now. Taking pics for the flyers & getting ready for the show.

Friday, January 29, 2010

Practice & pictures for the flyers tomorrow. In the meantime-Neon Knights by Black Sabbath.

OK, one more, only cuz it has a good Eruption intro, and interesting screams, grunts, & sounds in the break. You Really Got Me.

Metalheads Only!!! Ides of March & Wrathchild by Iron Maiden-2/23/10 practice. Sorry bout the feedback-still working on the practice positioning & sound.

Here's a snippet from Blackout-1/23/10 Practice

Monday, January 25, 2010

One more from our 1/23/10 practice, our 4th-Atomic Punk by Van Halen. Sounded perfect live but for some reason the recorder picked up too much guitar flange. Hey-this isn't a perfect science man!

For you hardcore metalheads, here's The Prisoner by Iron Maiden from our 1/23/10 practice.
OK-Rumor is that our fans (both of them) are hungry for some more nasty practice audio. Can't imagine why, but here you go-Love Removal Machine by The Cult from our 1/23/10 practice (needs to be sped up but you get the idea).

Week 4

Had our 4th practice today and we are sounding better and better every time we meet.

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

OK-One more. This time it's Too Hot to Handle sung by Jim, complete with his terrible British accent introduction, while I get a throat massage.

Here's some more nasty audio from the 1/17/10 practice-"Hell Bent for Leather" by Priest with a couple "Bloodstone" snippets (which we decided to learn & add to the set that day) thrown in.

More of Steve from 1/17/10 with Eruption partials

Here's Steve farting around with parts of Eruption by Van Halen, without any practice.

OK-Here's some more raw audio-this time from after the ugly Charger loss on Sunday (so there's an excuse). Ain't Talkin Bout Love anyone?

Monday, January 11, 2010

OK-So here my friends from only our second practice on 1/9/10 is the first completely raw, unmixed, unedited, audio-recorded with a small dictation device. Enjoy Dirty Deeds by AC/DC

1/9/10 Practice-Screaming in Jim's ear, as if the music volume isn't loud enough.
1/9/10 Practice-Either Jim is going for a high note or is just tired of watching my ridiculous moves.
1/9/10 Practice-Frank & Steve pounding it out.
1/9/10 Practice-Black was the color of the day. Songs much tighter than last week-lookin good!
1/9/10 Practice. When we asked Frank to start dressing a bit sexier it didn't go well.

Here's our ghetto practice space for the next couple of months.

Monday, January 4, 2010

We need more names. Please sign up here.

All Family & Friends-We are attempting to book a Feb show at one of the local clubs (Second Wind?) and need you to post your name & number of guests (under comments) if you plan on attending the show.



My fingers are on the mend.

Had a great time jammin' with the guys again. My fingers blistered up for the 1st time in years. Must have been the friction from playing the Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath tunes. Kick ass bass guitar in their songs.

Sunday, January 3, 2010

Blisters, ringing ears, sore backs & throats, but we made it through four hours. First practice in almost 30 years. A week of recovery and personal practice and then round 2. At least 4 of us got to go home and rest-Jim had to go play 4 more hours with his country band-BRUTAL!

Saturday, January 2, 2010

OK-So 1st Sanctuary practice today FINALLY! Playing songs from our early 80's rock era, but trying to talk the guys into a couple of surprises-One current song "Bad Girlfriend" by Theory of a Deadman and best of all-a hard rock thrashing of a classic 80's ballad. More details soon, here & on Facebook.
