Are you, or have you been, in a band?

Never, and I resent the accusation...

Boarders in bands...

Postby Martian Martian on Fri Jan 09, 2004 11:03 am

Given the recent interest in board demographics, here's one more. Feel free to add any frills...

We're a bit short on frills.

I used to play in a band with Zoltan, when he was a puppy. I was much better looking than him, and all the girls fancied me. Regardless of what he may say in reply.

Self-respect was the main reason for calling it a day. Money earned; approximately £30.

okay MM#2, just to help out your rapidly dying thread:

when i was working behind the bar at an indie night a couple of years ago, i formed a band with the DJ and the barmaid. we were called the Faults, and we consisted of me on guitar, the barmaid on clarinet and the DJ on vocals. clearly, this was a rather unorthodox setup for a rock'n'roll band, so plans were in place for a bass guitar and drumkit to be introduced. unfortunately, the band fell through before we could play a gig or finish writing our first song, as we could only rehearse after work, ie at 4am, invariably drunk/stoned, and my neighbours threatened to lynch me if it didn't stop. ah, happy days.

I think bass and drums would have ruined what sounds like a beautiful combo.

Expect to hear of a new and exciting non-guitar band called Mid-Air Collision over the course of the year! :wink:

I was in a band called Toast. You might of seen us support Teenage Fanclub at the barrowlands or Neil Young at the SECC around 92/93. Probably not though unless you can see in my dreams.
We put together about 12 songs were begining to play at the same time which helps and then...I moved to Edinburgh, one guitarist moved to London, other guitarist moved to Dundee and then Germany and the drummer had to sell his drum kit to pay his rent and then moved to Cornwall. The poor bassist was sat in Glasgow wondering what happened.
To be honest, we were pish. If we had made it though the NME could have put Toast of the Town as the headline which is the reason behind the name. :oops:

I organised practice sessions and sang. Part of the reason we were pish. FACT.

I had a good mate in a band and sometimes got to lug gear around and plug guitars in and stuff. I also worked in a club that put on a lot of good bands in the early 80s. But that's as close as I got.

Well apart from the B&S fan karaoke with the Johnny Seven.
