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

Despite very limited ability on bass I've played in bands since I was 17. Started with punk then pop,progressive rock , a wedding band and a Hendrix covers band in Liverpool. My last band was Hugh Reed and the Velvet Underpants which I left 3 years ago when my daughter was born.

Can't some of the crocks get it together and relive the glory days??

Ive told this before BUt.....
My old band Brine played on the same bill as BMX Bandits and Eugenius back in 92 at Irvines rock on the watter. Unfortunately we were billed after Eugenius which meant all the punters left leaving a mixtuire of family and drunks to watch us play. A certain Miss Debbie was seen drunk on the big slide while we were playing,.,,,,philistine.

Now im in the beginnings of whats shaping up to be a really good band with Ponyboy, Patchwaldron and our mate Alan from Edinburgh (who has a life and doesnt frequent places like this!!!).
We will be backing George Borowski on his next (hopefully in the not too distant future) visit up north and we have a set of a couple of covers and potentially 7 original tunes. 3 part harmonies on one of them too.......nice!

Lets see what 2004 brings.

BTW were looking for a keyboard player savvy with samples and shit to join,.....if you know anyone.

Messed around in bands since I was 16 but apart from the odd gig in a grotty pub, nothing ever came of it. In fact the most rock n roll thing that happened was I roadied for long forgotten britpop nearly men Marion in 1998!

currently working on my solo concept album.

I'm currently playing in 3 active bands:

Army of Jasons (60's pop)

The Brett Rosenberg Problem (classic rock)

Mercury Charm Offensive (damned if I know)

and last night I sat in with a friend's country band, Golden West Motor Lodge.

Yeah its called "take a walk on the Clydeside". It was recorded before I was in the band and has some good moments.

I consider late phase Protection to be Progressive rock as I was into Yes and Be Bop Deluxe big style then. Long songs, tempo changes etc but I don't want to dwell on this misguided period.
Martian Martians Moog solo on"storm" at the Star club was the most progressive thing we did. If there is a call for it surely we can make it available as an MP3 as its still out there on tape somewhere.

i put a notice on the school notice board to form a band
"bassist needs blah blah"
this guy who used to allways follow me around trying to copy my licks changed the date and they all turned up the day before and formed their own band BASTARDS. even copied my PERM and TINTED glass's look that.


Adam Clayton was allways a bastard.

Oh, alright then. I was saving it all for my grandchildren, but here we go. Way way back in 1987 in a faraway land called Wollongong (NSW, Australia), it was me and four others in The Groovy Train - this is three years before The Farm's single, remember. Hilarious, we were. A full 22 gigs or something in our hometown and never cracked Sydney, which was the big live market, before those ever-popular musical differences tore us asunder and we had a big break-up drink down the boozer.

These days, I'm one-third of Orange Crush (no, nobody could think of a proper name), threatening inflict standards "with a twist" (oh yes!) in bars/pubs/caffs around Melbourne. We're ever so slightly naff; our singer can sing, mind
I will now proceed to untangle the entire area.
