    ...some of us have played out only a little. Peeps here probably know bits and pieces of the Dadocaster saga, some more than others. For me long periods of circumstances that effectively kept me from playing. I'm ok with that, but I do want to do some stuff before I get even older.

    The new project I am working on is specifically aimed at gigging with all the happy punks in North Texas. There are a lot of them and a lot of venues and a lot of shows so it would seem not to be difficult to get to play. I think I have a couple of good guys to work with.

    Here's the funny part: For those of us who have not been "serious" in bands, nothing has changed. It's still exciting to put heads together and figure out influences and things we mutually like, styles, sounds, sense of humor. All three of us write so there should be a lot of stuff to pick from. But still, the best thing of all, beats the hell out of anything in normal life: Picking a band name. :D It's like Study Hall Freshman year level humor.

    I can use some of that...

    Egads, I'm terrible at band names. Yeah, I'm definitely stuck in the middle school humor pit. I remember for my first band in high school, my big idea was to call us "The Studbolts."

    Yeah, best to leave the band names to anyone but me.

    I think Cowpunk is a legit sub genre.

    Taking inspiration from Led Zeppelin and Jefferson Airplane we once came up with Plummet Airlines............didn’t seem right, we were a country band. Surgical Ketchup was another...............what fun.

    Oh god that's been a nightmare in the past. We've always ended up with compromise names. And a compromise is an agreement in which no one is happy lol.

    Joke names aside, I suppose it depends on the kind of image you want to project.

    We are doing punk, we can mostly just do anything from offensive to amusing to smarty pants. That's why we are doing punk. :D

    That's kind of a fun stage when you're putting things together for a new band. I gigged pretty steadily from the age of 13 to 30. I miss playing to an audience, cranking my SFSR, hanging with and playing with good players. I don't miss the road, hotel rooms, and hauling equipment (especially a B3 and a SFSR). :)

    It looks like venues will be opening up in the metroplex so this may be a good time for you to get gigs. Good luck!
