Laying the beds
Tempi were snappy, the drumming was energetic, the neighbours brought in their children to cheer us along, the fingerpointing and recrimination were minimal for a change, the afternoon tea was charming…
Bass and guitars to follow. My turn comes tomorrow night.

We need to improve our filters and we need to point out when any aspect of a song is weak. A serious and silly thing to say but I want us to be a band I would think has their shit so tight and so hot that we could get away with wearing tight, shiny leather trousers when we play.
Also, I really like the had made CD releases. I think it is our choice of port in this particular storm.
Please ignore me.

Tricks of the trade
It also conclusively answers the 'soldier tea' vs 'green teeth' dilemma and proves that men of a certain age should not wear leather pants and that anyone sporting both a full beard and a baseball cap will look for all the world like a child molester.

Also, on the subject of Parliament... note to the drummer: any chance of a giant, flashing PVC flying saucer to spice up our on-stage presence?
Who's The Boss
Using screws, nails, superglue, seaweed, clamps, threats of torture, cement, twine, and a small voodoo doll I have secured the driver firmly back into my speaker bin. A timely repair as, thanks to the wonders of EBay, my ME-50B turned up in the mail and I spent the weekend gleefully making all sorts of wonderful noises.
Every bass player needs a Bootsy autowah. It's in the rulebook.
