    Since my last band imploded (a sad tale of international intrigue and star-crossed romance... well, not really, the drummer had to go back to The Hague and the other two had a disagreement), I've been looking for another group of cool people to make some noise with. I'm in a trio with a couple who live 2 houses down but it's mostly acoustic. Nice, but I'm missing the drums and the energy of rock, and I'm also the guitarist so we're a bit limited by my lack of skill...:oops:

    I've had a few responses to my ads but most were too far away, too young, too good or played a kind of music I'm not into.

    Then this guitarist guy (25 yrs experience but just took up singing as well) called. He's been playing for 6 months with a woman who used to play guitar and sing but took up the drums a few years ago.

    Their playlist so far is sort of darkish punky/grungy/alternative: Patti Smith, Nirvana, The Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Sonic Youth, Joy Division, Talking Heads... I suggested we add some Garbage and they're ok with that. I'm going to meet them in a studio to see how it goes. I'd mostly play bass and sing a bit, maybe occasionally play guitar. We'll see. They seem cool.

    Wish me luck! :)

    No, not that bad, I don't think. I don't know all the ins and outs, but C said she didn't want to play music anymore. Hopefully she will change her mind someday.
